#3266612 EU Referendum

Posted by Phil on 03 February 2016 - 08:29 AM

Try and come back as an immigrant. Then you can send a shedload of benefits back with you to where you live now. You can still live anywhere in Europe, just come back on a cheap flight once a month to sign on.

The internet is stuck, I keep reading the same post by you over and over again but in different threads. 😴😴😴😴

#3264503 Northern Powerhouse

Posted by Phil on 30 January 2016 - 03:31 PM

Anyway, back on theme, the tories have shown that all their bluster about the northern powerhouse is just that, bluster, why reward all those awful labour voters with jobs and opportunities? Screw 'em down, and then screw em again.

#3264501 The NHS Debate (Merged threads)

Posted by Phil on 30 January 2016 - 03:27 PM

Your concern would be believable rather than spinelessly hypocritical if you don't support and vote for the party who pledged even less money to sort the NHS out. We know.

Whataboutism but then pretty much all your posts are whataboutism tinged with what seems to be a scarcely subdued anger. There is still therapy available, not for much longer though, still, you won't mind going private will you?

#3263992 Rain, rain and more rain

Eastbourne got £2m of public money to repair a pier. Cameron announced it personally.

Lib Dem / Tory marginal that. Can't think why they'd be getting the same amount of money for one, non-essential, thing. I'll have to look into it.

Surely you can't be suggesting the tories would act out of venality and self interest?

#3262933 RBS: Government sells £2.1bn of shares in bank

Posted by Phil on 27 January 2016 - 01:06 PM

Shares now at £2.50ish.

I'd pile in now if you thought £3.30 was a bargain.

Get yer snout in the trough

#3262456 My wife

Posted by Phil on 26 January 2016 - 01:14 PM

Our first date was carried out under the watchful gaze of her family.

After her brother had beat me up five times he told the family I wasnt being scared off. His dad then suggested they should meet up with me. It's very much against Romani tradition for a Rom woman to be involved with a Gadjo

Well after saying I wouldn't I have, got a new band together that is. We're called Oil City and we'll be making our debut on the 20th February at "Flood Aid" The Junction Inn, Rastrick.

#3260416 The gathering storm ...

Posted by Phil on 21 January 2016 - 04:04 PM

I know I don't know, hence why I asked CKN the question.

I have no issue with my taxes going towards benefits for people who have contributed to the system through taxation themselves and are unfortunate enough to find themselves out of work.

So perhaps you should read what I say before casting fabricated aspersions. You're making yourself look foolish

What Weary said

#3260397 The gathering storm ...

Posted by Phil on 21 January 2016 - 03:17 PM

Why should my taxes go towards someone who hasn't contributed to society?

You don't know whether the person CKN was referring to has contributed or not, but yeah let's go with your blind faith that they haven't, so let's starve em, not just the waster but all his dependants, oh yeah and everyone he knows too.

God forbid your taxes be wasted on feckless spongers.

I hope your job's as safe as houses, most people are only a couple of pay days away from broke, or maybe you're doing ok, after all it is all about you isn't it?

#3260290 The gathering storm ...

Posted by Phil on 21 January 2016 - 10:58 AM

One obscure example to support your argument . I wonder how much this family has actually contributed in taxation in their time to support the state handouts?

Subtext: "they're spongers it doesn't matter"

Nice one

#3259497 Update on my situation

Posted by Phil on 18 January 2016 - 09:11 PM

Well things look to be on the up for my family and me. My anxiety attacks have pretty much disappeared thanks in no small part to the support I've had from you guys on this board. I can honestly say I've had dozens of messages offering help, advice or just an opportunity to vent.

I won't name names, but it's quite humbling when you get messages from people you've disagreed with fundamentally over various issues but who are still concerned for your welfare.

My son is on the up again and looks more like his old self. He's sharing a house with another ex serviceman and he's doing ok.

I've joined a new band and we hope to be gigging towards the end of February.

I've also got to say my wife has been an absolute rock during this trying time.

Anyway thanks to everyone who helped/listened to my ranting it genuinely helped, but then we're Rugby League people that's what we're like.
