    Inoperational Bumblebee got a reaction from Frank Hovis in And you thought GDPR was bad   
    At the risk of sounding like a deluded fanboy in this market, this is why cryptos will come to the fore.
    Given their previous successes with large data projects, I suspect only the law-abiding will suffer.

    Excellent. I just need to forage a house and school fees and I can avoid tax altogether.

    Actually...you know what all this is about?
    The fuckers have flooded the country and expenditure is out of control. So they are desperately hammering every penny out of workers.

    This is really shit.
    My experience of IR35 has made contracting almost pointless. The only place worth a punt is Scotland...elsewhere hourly rates are capped. And HMRC have insisted I use a payroll company...So deemed employed means paying Employers NI, Employees NI, Apprenticeship Levy, Payroll charges then Income Tax. Take home pay under basic rate of tax equals 61% of weekly earnings. Once I hit upper brackets take home pay is 41% of earnings.  And there's no allowances against tax anymore......nothing.
    And when I log into my HMRC account, they have details of every weekly pay and deductions. And my Personal Allowance code goes up and down faster than a tarts knickers.
    So I thought about a new business venture....setting up a joinery business. But fuck that....it really is not worth the hassle.
     
    And if the Government and HMRC think big business is the way forward and small business ventures don't deserve any encouragement, then they are deluded. Look what has happened to House of Fraser, Gaucho, ToysRus, Woolworths, JJB Sports, Blockbusters, BHS, Phones4U, P&H, Carillion etc etc
     
    Conservatives really are looking like a bunch of spivs.

    Which will only add to the reasons why so few tradesmen these days take on apprentices to expand their business; preferring to keep it below the VAT threshold and not having to deal with any of the HR stuff or pension auto enrollment.
    There's a whole generation of tradesmen not being trained because of these endless rules and regulations.

    According to Monbiot we must stop shaming fatties it's all the evil food companies and government's fault. Nothing to do with being lazy fat cunts who choose to eat badly at all.

    You'd not be able to fit as many people in the photo nowadays.
    I was at a meeting the other day in work, with 5 women. All but 1 was morbidly obese. Like so obese that it's gonna make sex virtually impossible, gonna limit mobility....and these are all smart successful women. Nobody gives a shit any more. Fat is the new normal.

    I don't think anybody said that, to be fair, it was about "one for the wank bank". As a man who has been with the same woman for 18 years now, I wouldn't say no to any of them for a one night (zero chance of complications) scenario. Still none of the Spice Girls would be in my top 1000, let alone top 100 fantasy women.

    Fairly accurate actually; though I'd have put scary at the bottom of the list.
    EDIT: this is when I was 14 by the way; I'd never give any of them a second thought now.

    I thought the general order in most men's Wank Bank was Posh, Baby, Ginger, Scarey and Sporty, although there is usually some jostling for space at the number two slot.

    Metric for scientific.
    Imperial for food, drink, fuel, and people.

    The only good thing to come out of the EU in my view. I wish we could ditch the mixture of metric and imperial though. Metric is much easier.

    Inoperational Bumblebee reacted to null; in Investing for the collapse?   
    Growing your own doesn't really work out financially but there are other benefits to be had.
    Knowing what chemicals (if any) have been used is a big plus. The enjoyment of it, fresh air, good for the mind and soul, the exercise. If you have an allotment then there is a social aspect as well. Think of it as a hobby with benefits.
    Onions and garlic are very easy to grow and store well with little need for preperation. No advantage over shop bought and they are dirt cheap to buy but they are satisfying to grow.
    Soft fruit is where the money is and where the quality can be better than supermarket.
    Beetroot as you say is a good one, fast growing, healthy and they are not bothered by pests.
    French beans also easy to grow and can be frozen.

    Inoperational Bumblebee reacted to Wahoo in Another pointer to the UK being fucked.   
    The Poles were faced with unspeakable terrors during WW2. On 13th April 1943 Radio Berlin announced that a mass grave had been found at Katyn forest.  3000 Polish officers stacked like firewood. The Germans claimed it was the Russians...and they were right.They were prisoners taken by Russia in 1939.
    Then the Poles had to endure the mass extermination of Jews in German-Occupied Poland. The SS began their Grossakion Warsaw. Jews were deported to Treblinka which overflowed with death. Dr Erberl wanted to impress high command and the 300,000 Jews that arrived died in unimaginable conditions. Erbel was demoted.
    The remaining 40,000 Jews in Warsaw were corralled into a ghetto and some formed a resistance. They shot the Jewish elders with smuggled pistols and built baracades.  It was a ghetto uprising. The Germans found it difficult to control. Eventually all the Jews were killed.
    The Poles formed a resistance called the Grey Ranks. They stopped a truck containing 25 prisoners being transported for further interrogation to Gestapo headquarters. Two of the Polish prisoners were so badly tortured in that truck they died from their injuries. But they named two SS officers who had tortured them. The Polish resistance found those Germans and murdered them. The SS shot 160 Poles as a warning.
    But it was too late. The Grey Ranks had had enough and realised that if the Jews could fight back so could they. The Warsaw Uprising began.
     
    So when those fucks in the European Parliament start to tell the Poles that they need to take in a share of so-called migrants....it's hardly surprising the Poles tell them to get stuffed.
    I just wish we had more balls. What our leaders are doing is absolute madness and we will see Europe burn once again.

    I was recently talking to a friend of a friend who is something of an SJW and I mentioned about immigrants and minimum levels of net contribution. She seemed to have little concept of 'net contribution' and just said 'oh, but I thought immigrants were supposed to be beneficial for the economy'. This is someone who is always reading the Guardian etc. I always point out to lefties that you can't have a functioning welfare state without net contributors, but they never seem to grasp the concept. It's always just 'we need more investment in healthcare' or 'the rich should pay more tax'.

    Trump had to use the existing two party system to become prez 
    Even then...
    1. Trump still has the deadweight of the republican party hindering him, so whatever he achieves will be muted. 
    2.The tory party leadership contests are dictated by the parliamentary party, so only bankster/city approved candidates will be allowed through. Thats why they were laughing so much about Corbyn getthing through on labours leadership, which put the power in the party. 
    Trump would thus have to use labour in the UK. The tory party is set up to be a party where money and influence dictate who leads it, not the membership.
