    Game_of_Homes got a reaction from gilf in Death by Private equity list   
    So, what is going on with John Lewis and their massive fall in profits? I always thought that they had a unique ownership structure in that each worker had a stake in the company?
    To be honest, I think people just don't have much money these days and nobody is buying expensive furniture because they have no space and no permanent home. It's also too expensive to have a high street shop once you factor in rates, taxes etc all whilst the big companies are able to (legally with the help of the Government turning a blind eye) avoid as much tax as possible which other companies can't.

    Hmm. Not sure that these ideas have failed to gain traction as such, I think there are many, many ordinary "plebs" who are furious and think like this. The problem is that in many European/Western countries, it is literally illegal to be proud of your country. You can now be imprisoned merely for saying the wrong thing and they have made sure that just thinking the wrong thing and vocalising it (even if not illegal) is met with much approbation which can have you fired, ostracized etc. Thankfully we still have private ballots in the UK (unlike places like Sweden). I wonder how soon it will be until elections have open ballots because of course "if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear", so that the plebs will get the message and vote in the correct way (no more UKIP gammon votes or voting for the Tories in London).

    Game_of_Homes reacted to SNACR in Are Modern Kids Totally Spoilt/Overstimulated Or What?   
    Well, I’ve spent Christmas at my brother’s house and the past day remaking Uncle Buck with myself cast in the lead role.
    Seriously, what is it with modern kids though?
    You just give them some huge toy they play with it for about five seconds before it’s discarded. Then a DVD’s put on and they watch it for about five seconds before losing interest. I gave them a budget of a fiver each, to spend in the newsagents and we left with the sort of surplus the Treasury would dream of. When I was that age there’s zero chance any balance wouldn’t have gone on penny chews to the full amount.
    It was quite warm so we went to the nearby woods/adventure playground, and took their bikes, There were all sorts of muddy banks and dips, I was nearly tempted to snatch a bike off them myself but zero interest. In fact, they probably got more entertainment from constantly fiddling with the car seats, for the whole journey, than anything else. I think next year I’II just get them an electric car seat from a breakers yard and a 12v battery then wrap that up.
    I’m not too keen on the whole ‘when I was a lad’ thing but seriously back then entertainment wise, if there was a Tom and Jerry cartoon on before Songs of Praise, or something, that was a highlight. They just don’t seem to know they’re born. Also, to a large degree, they’re almost too well behaved, the seat fiddling aside the car journey was relatively mundane where I’d have probably spent it, at their age, making spazz faces at my sister the whole way.
    Maybe it’s the parents. I led a rendition of jingle bells, Batman smells, with the youngest to parental disapproval early on.

    Fucking hell I am furious that the police and press have ruined the life of the Crawley couple. Absolutely shameful. Hope they sue the police and the papers that plastered untruths about them all over their front pages!

    Absolute this. I have no issue with police taking them in for questioning but all the public needed to know was that 2 people were helping the police with their enquiries. 
    Seeing who it was, their facebook posts and their home was completely unnecessary. The police should either have not told the press or stopped the press from releasing this info if it was passed on by someone else. 
    People’s homes should be completely off limits.

    Police are now saying that there may never have been a drone attack on Gatwick.
    Yep.
    This was either some FUD distraction or incompetence highlighting the complete shambles that this country has become.

    Just what I was thinking.
    No way would they have released their names if they were diverse enrichers.
