    I love all this socialism talk. It's amazing how government intervention is called for when the well off look like they might get a bit poorer, but it's all talk of scroungers when the poor want just a little bit of the cake.

    I've watched over the years as the 'greed is good' philosophy has taken root.

    Anybody pleading the case for fairness and social justice was derided as a hippy liberal wanker.

    anybody at the bottom of the pile is a pikey charver who deserves to be kicked some more instead of helped to improve their quality of life, and the biggest kickers are those just above them on the social heap who blame them for scrounging when the people who are the real robbers with their million dollar bonuses and fat cat lifestyles are lauded as examples of enterprise and to be praised.

    now these cunts have swanned off to their tax havens and left the rest of us to pick up the tab for their greed.

    and we are just going to have to pay up.

    Ironic (& very expensive) that New Labour had to dump Clause 4 To secure for the workers by hand or by brain the full fruits of their industry and the most equitable distribution thereof that may be possible upon the basis of the common ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange, and the best obtainable system of popular administration and control of each industry or service. So it could get voters from middle England & now it is bailing out the ultimate capitalist industry.

    While they are on roll can they please take the utilities company back? Not arsed about the BT's, British Airways, National Rail etc.

    Anyone been into see there bank & see if they are still arseholes or are they more customer focused?

    tbf tho, in about 20+ years, it'll be a surprise if we get a bathfull of water heated in that time anyway. i hate bath's just because of the time consumed.

    showers FTW.

    At the start of this thread it was about the price of loaf on the increase, middle part was about the billions of pounds being pumped into Banks by Bankrupt Britain & now we move onto wanting to know what size MOS tub is:)
