  1. Where does it imply he's a rip off landlord?

    Of course there are bad ones really bad ones

    But in my experience most private landlords want happy tenants regular rent and no damage to their investment

    The problem is most bad tenants who were evicted from social housing for various reasons end up at the bad landlords doors as the good landlords have them thoroughly vetted in advance

    Therefore most get what they deserve


  2. You're wrong on this one. I earn less than £8 per hour but have never been eligible for a penny of tax credits in my life. £9 an hour minimum wage will make a real difference to me. Under Labour I was at one point earning £13,000 and then having to pay £2,000 out in taxes barely leaving me enough money to live off whilst people earning £50,000 with children were getting tax credits.

     

     

    Well done sir you should be applauded but on here I doubt it


  3. Clearly you don't live in St Helens.  St Helens Council has never stopped whinging and bleating about The Cuts since the first round of them was introduced.

     

    Yet they can afford to buy all the councillors Ipads last year.  Amazing really just what councils will waste precious resources on.  I have worked for four different local authorities in my lifetime and not one of them was anything like as responsible with their money as any private enterprise I have worked for.  One local Council bought everyone brand new computers just a year or so before I worked for them (which I did in 2010).  That equated to 800 staff in one building alone.  Meanwhile, a couple of years later I took a job with Sainsbury in St Helens and many staff were still using cruddy old cream coloured chunky PCs as they couldn't afford to buy new computers for everyone all at once - they were in profit in those days too.  Sure, that is just computers, but multiply that by all the other incidentals and financial benefits attached to working for local authorities and there is still a lot of waste that can be cut to save money.

    I work in the social housing sector the waste by councils is huge, way too many chiefs driving round all day with fancy titles on big salaries doing sweet FA.

    My local council leader earns over £100k(expenses) :shout: and the mayor is drove around in a  chauffer driven Rolls


  4. Perhaps he's refused to apologise for reasons we don't know.  As he says better one dead peer's memory scarred than kids who've been abused frightened to come forward.  The Tories are very good at covering their tracks when they're in power.  They've done it before.  In the police phrase ," they have form."

    Thought you'd defend him, funny how he's not chased after Janner as much.

     

    Brittan's are against a 19 year old Allegedly

    Janners are horrific allegedly

    Hope they throw the book at the horrible little man


  5. Yes because an interview candidate is likely to turn up at an office in protest gear, all shouty and such, aren't they?......

    Oh believe you me I've had all kinds turn up for job interviews over the years

    Miss spelt Tats, nose pins, spiked weird coloured hair Vyvyan from the Young Ones sprang to mind.

    Some hadn't seen or heard of soap not to mention washing powder.

    If you cant make an effort to try an impress by your presentation then its bye bye


  6. Sounds like it was an interesting night with the PLP.

     

     

    It was a long and difficult meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party.

    One MP said it was the worst they had ever been to. Jeremy Corbyn was apparently "read the riot act" and said nothing. Another described it as "shambolic", lacking "any aspect of democratic politics".

    A former shadow cabinet member told me it was "without doubt one of the most heated" PLPs and that "passions were running high". Others were clearly outraged at the shadow chancellor's change of plan.

    As he left the meeting, former cabinet minister Ben Bradshaw branded it a "total shambles".

    John Mann MP was furious, he shouted so loudly at the party's leadership he was easily audible in the corridor outside.

    Despite that anger, a spokesman for Mr Corbyn said the meeting had been "warm and friendly" claiming the only disagreement had been on the need for there to be more discussion on the issue.

    It all shows the seriousness of the cracks within the party and many in Labour will worry about how much worse it could all get.

     

    Comrade Corbyn and his mates sound like a dictatorship, his £3 votes have gone to his head


  7.  

     

    Indeed, though I did not vote for Jeremy Corbyn to be the leader, I have been impressed by the stance he has taken in not indulging in personal insults, despite being on the receiving end of many himself, not least from the Prime Minister who has shown a complete lack of class in that regard.

     

    Do not judge an entire political party by the stupid actions of a pathetic handful of egg-throwing, spitting goons at a demo who probably aren't even members of it in the first place.

    Who could he insult?, apart from the piggy situation.

    Cameron didn't insult him he just said what Corbyn is, an IRA/Sein Fein sympathiser, a friend of Hamas and Hezbollah, is anti EU (though that's changing), associated with anti-semetic groups and holocaust deniers, wants to open the floodgates to migrants of any denomination

    Imagine an American politician inviting a couple of Al Qaeda's political wing to New York 3 weeks after 9/11.

    And now we have his new deputy Watson having double standards as well as being a lying barsteward.

    Voters judge political parties from their leadership down and at the top of Labour right now we have a mixed bunch, which include a liar, a man who thought Bobby Sands was basically a hero and wanted to assassinate Thatcher, an arsonist, your mate Burnham who's change's his opinions so many times he doesn't know which way he's facing as well as being a brown noser.

    JC has stated he's not concerned who joins the party or voted for him as long as they pay their dues, so the scenes we've seen in Manchester will become more and more frequent and violent as more of the looney left/swampies join his crusade.


  8.   Just change the law that those accused of this sort of crime are not named until they're at least formally charged or taken to court.

    Here's a first I agree with you

     

    A while back in my neck of the woods a bloke was taken to court for an alleged rape, he was found not guilty but everyone in our neighbourhood knew in advance about the case, to this day some morons still refer to him as the "rapist".

    The woman who was found to be lying moved away from the area.

    And yes I know we don't want to stop women or men to stop reporting rape to the police, but surely reporting restrictions should be kept under wraps until AFTER the case has been heard.


  9.  

    AOL run a 'Poll of the day', today it is

     

    If there was a general election  tomorrow, which party would you vote for?

     

    It shows

    Conservative 41%

    Ukip 26%

    Labour 21%

    Lib Dem 4%

    Others 8%

     

    Total Voters 17,593

     

    Is this good news for Labour or not, bearing in mind the bashing Jezza has taken in the media recently.

     

     

     

     

    It gets worse for JC
