    I'm sure the whole world would be queuing up to enter into trade deals with the UK once the UK has demonstrated that it is happy to renege on prior agreements and fuck over their previous partners.

    How UKIP can convince people that this is a good idea is beyond me.

    If you could give me an email address for the terrorist ombudsman I'd write a strongly worded behaviour denouncing their behaviour...

    Straps are usually regarded as replaceable accessories subject to wear so are usually outside of warranty. There are exceptions though, not sure of iwc stance.

    I just tried some Vanilla Huel. Really pleasantly surprised. Like a crap smoothie with oatmeal in.

    a) She advocates genocide
    b) She is ignorant of what those words imply
    c) She knows what those words mean and chose to use them for self publicity reasons.

    I'm going with c.

    Hopkins tweeting that a "final solution" is needed. Can't she try to be human for just one day?

    A canadian teacher's pension fund owns London City Airport and a large stake in a few of the utility companies. No reason why the state couldn't do the same.

    Yes, I think double taxation is murky and shit. Why should anybody pay 12% of their income towards possible health and social care costs and then have to stump up a chunk of their house value at death?

    Sure, there are strong a guments for inheritance tax. I agree that I can't write that off as unfair double taxation, but the dementia tax definitely is.

    A person on the average UK salary could expect to pay £150,000 of national insurance between the age of 20 and 60. Not forgetting that employers pay similar into the pot. £300,000 per average earner...shouldn't that be enough?

    There is definitely value in a proportionate inheritance tax. I just think that a system where even basic rate tax payers pay over 40p in the pound (once you total everything up) shouldn't be fleecing people for any care they need in the future.
