Goon Show walt!! Remember the character of Hugh Jympton?ETA: I’ve just looked at the Wiki entry and that gives ‘Llaregub’.
However, my English master for ‘O’ Level had known Thomas and gave us that version, adding that even people at the BBC could spot the reverse word, but they didn’t spot it with the ‘y’. Makes sense.
As soon as the bookies open I am down there - £100 punt on Keir Starmer for the next GEMy guess would be expect a shedload of new direct taxes as they are the hardest to avoid. Dress them up as 'green' and kill two birds with one stone. So plastics taxes, non-recyclable taxes, co2 import duties etc.
Like Student fees you mean? After 30 years some elderly folk may look back and say their student debt has been written, because they're poor and have done f all with their meaningless degree. This lot of Covid money WILL be clawed back by this and future governments somehow.The will not - it will be written off
I should have be more clear - the money given out now will be written offIt's all borrowed money, so no it won't. We'll be paying for this for at least a decade.
2p tax on every item imported from China until it's repaid.Only if they can persuade the Chinese that as it's their fault they should be paying compensation to the tune of exactly what the treasury have given away!
But what will be saved by the NHS for the over-60s social care for the next decade or two.It's all borrowed money, so no it won't. We'll be paying for this for at least a decade.
....I was intubated for 10 days in 2018...three weeks in ICU, another week in an isolation ward. ECMO survivor - the NHS saved my life. Just that.A Dr on This Morning, this morning, explained that a day of intubation or induced coma equates to one week of convalescence. Quite a different scenario.
A tax on Bamboo shoots?My guess would be expect a shedload of new direct taxes as they are the hardest to avoid. Dress them up as 'green' and kill two birds with one stone. So plastics taxes, non-recyclable taxes, co2 import duties etc.
Brexit dividend's getting stretched somewhat!I am having to wonder if Corbyn has suddenly taken over and Abbott has given the Money Tree a thump with her ample backside. The costs are just sky-rocketing. Money is being found for pretty much any request. I hope that the taps for Overseas Aid have been turned off while this is going on (a bit wishful thinking to hope the taps are off permanently as the snowflakery individuals "Haven't gone away y'know")
At least those people squealing about being abandoned in Peruh on thuh Gap Yah are being made to pay for the flights back home.
There is going to be a lot of work in years to come for beancounters in the Treasury to dream up ways of getting this money back after this monster Giveaway....
Not sure I agree with that, entirely. She lacks gravitas, but the powder puff content is probably imposed on her.Derbyshire is way out of her depth. I don't know why but she was the blue eyed gal for the BBC getting her own programme. From what I have seen of her show it has gone from a serious morning news analysis with 'magazine' type articles to a soppy show dealing with "womens' issues". Downhill rather than becoming a respected show. I don't think her intellect is large enough to carry a serious news analysis show.
This Covid-19 crisis has been a god-send for her as her show was being axed, now she is on at an important time of day during a national and international crisis. IMO, she and her producers are incapable of rising to the occasion.
Why? We've just done the most broadly supported socialist things we've ever done out of necessity and the horrendous bill for it will pop through the letterbox in a few months. The Labour party has about as much chance of winning the next election as Diane Abbot has of finishing a coherent sentence.As soon as the bookies open I am down there - £100 punt on Keir Starmer for the next GE

Just give it to H4H. At least it will do some good. Labour have no chance.5 years to go - I am playing the long game and I have £100 to spare
Just put that into context I believe that on the 1 pm news it was estimated that a three month period of supporting those currently on Furlough would be about £40 Bn However Europe still can’t agree measures for the Eurozone and it is costing them as well. The Banking crash by comparison cost us well over 100 billion at prices then just as Europe is losing our contribution now.Brexit dividend's getting stretched somewhat!
