    sarahbell got a reaction from Great Guy in Income tax to go up to pay for the NHS   
    Could they just charge everyone £8.60 for a prescription? 
    Stop me feeling quite so sad that that I'm the only one paying.
    Or maybe they should charge £8.60 a visit to the GP and you get a free prescription?

    sarahbell got a reaction from Carl Fimble in Rats!   
    There's a funny smell on one allotment plot. Overgrown plot so could be hiding a dead rat. or maybe just a playground for them.
    The whole site needs a really good declutter to remove harbourage. 4 legged rats least of the problems though.

    You know your country is out of balance when a space in car park earns £2 an hour more than the minimum wage.

    Starts at 16 and you get the first three years free for being in full time education, I've only actually worked about 26 years but have an apparently full 34 year record (bar the last two college years).  You can look up your record on the government gateway site.

    Quell surprise ... population becoming steadily fatter and sicker, population living longer (and much more expensive)
    and the big one ...
    a population increasing dramatically in size year-on-year

    Reported plenty of stuff over the years to the Met police, from relatively minor to extremely serious. Never once had any sort of result out of them, in a majority of cases only contact was the initial one when I reported it. 
    I suspect a vast majority of people reporting crime to the police these days only do so as an insurance requirement or to cover themselves. Most recent one for me was a incident where both my number plates were stolen, had it been one I wouldn't have bothered only really bothered with the pair in case something happened down the line.

    The money is still there just that it's reaching fewer people and in greater quantities. Judging by the number of helicopters flying in/out of Cornwall during holiday season  I'd speculate they don't need mortgages and nor do they require a motorway linking London to the South West.

    The middle class might be getting decimated but the people I saw were not middle class, they were London corporate executives, media and City types. Completes wankers the lot of them but they have money to burn. 
    I was in the chip shop in Salcombe and overheard the people in front of me discussing the prosecco situation back at the house. When they got to the counter they asked for 'breaded fish' and chips. To my amazement they did not ask for guacamole with their order.

    Probably because there are no locals. No work and sky high prices mean that they have all gone elsewhere, leaving the elderly behind

    I'm sure there will be ways to circumvent the rules. How do they propose to prevent the sale to a family who already own a home?
    I'm also puzzled if there is such animosity to second home owners why so many properties are restricted by the local authorities as holiday lets only with restrictions to prevent them being occupied all year?

    All part of the plan. Didn't you hear that cycling was too white, male and middle class?

    "It is believed the protesters were demonstrating against the Eritrean government."
    Importing the (third) world's problems.
    We've already seen different Middle-Eastern factions clashing.
    Soon the UK will be just a microcosm of all the World's problem areas full of "vulnerable" people beating the shit out of eachother.

    Did they not lead with the husband because he's hideously white and no one would care?

    There has beeen a spate of robberies around where I am. To give the police their due, they caught the piece of shit.
    To be honest I think most burglaries result in getting a crime number and letting the insurers deal with it.

    Send a letter thanking them for their reply and say that you will be holding it on file for future reference should the threat be realised

    sarahbell reacted to Frank Hovis in State Pension - incomplete years   
    I'm in my final qualifying year of the 35 but have two incomplete years (second and third college years) and would have been opted out from SERPS for most if not all of it.
    The HMRC website is ambiguous and I know two people of similar age who have been phoning up to enquire.
    I have heard people say once your thirty five years are done that's it and you can't change it but that's not what the people phoning up have been told which is that you can replace those partial years.
    Two methods:
    If still working they will be replaced with the new years.
    If not working (and presumably pre state retirement age) phone up at the end of each year and you can buy full years for c. £700 which replace partial years.
     
    This latter was what I did with two years of a mature post-grad degree where they write to me asking if I wanted to buy the two years for about £300 each IIRC; which I did and it shows on my record.
     
    Can anyone confirm or has been told differently?

    The only conclusion that can be drawn from the media reports is the logical one that most of the people who follow 'islam' are indeed mentally ill.
