    Gross Income £80,000.00

    I think his anger and confusion stems from him taking home £54k a year but being told he's in the top 5% of earners in the UK and he should pay more.
    He won't get child benefit either. He won't qualify for any tax credits of course.
    So compare to the figures someone else has done for a 16 hour week with a couple of kids... You can see why he doesn't want to pay more in tax. He's really not going to feel like he's in the top 5% of earners.

    The other annoyance is that when actually having a meal in a restaurant, the ambience is somewhat ruined by the constant stream of delivery drivers in and out and hanging around waiting/getting shouted at for being late.

    It doesn't say why house prices would decrease in the event of a no deal BREXIT either - it just says they could decrease and BREXIT will be the sole cause.
    'UK house prices could drop by 6.2% next year if the UK leaves the EU without a deal on 31 October' that statement is 100% true, as is 'UK house prices could rise by 6.2% next year if the UK leaves the EU without a deal on 31 October'.
    My money would be on a devaluation of sterling resulting in an increase in the nominal value of assets priced in sterling - just like what happened after the BREXIT vote itself (maybe the highly knowledgeable BBC journalist could have offered that as a counter argument).
    I like how they think saying 6.2% adds some suggestion that there's actually some scientific calculation going on in the background, and they're not just making these figures up out of thin air.

    The problem with immigration as a means to boost GDP is that those that benefit from economic growth don't suffer the downside of unfettered immigration and those that suffer the downside of unfettered immigration don't benefit from the economic growth.
