  1. This is the USA, maybe the UK prices will increase at a similar level? ""About half of households use natural gas for heating and will see their bills jump by 30% in October-March compared to last year, the EIA it said. Those who use heating oil or propane - around 10% - could see their costs jump by 54% and 43% respectively. For the remainder that use electricity for heating, costs should rise by a more modest 6%, it said.""
  2. A litre of petrol sold at UK forecourts has reached its highest level since September 2012, at 140.22p on average, according to RAC data. Those petrol station owners will make making a good profit?
  3. Being an MP is, or used to be a very safe job, construction work on the other hand is very dangerous. No big outcry when a construction worker dies.
  4. Employers do need to suffer in order for them to increase workers pay. I had a cleaner a few months ago, she moved house so it became unviable for her. The going rate may be much higher now. I can either pay the money or live in squalor
  5. Tory MP James Gray apologises for joke about sending 'bomb' to Labour MP Anneliese Dodds. https://www.thenational.scot/news/19606070.tory-mp-james-gray-apologises-joke-sending-bomb-labour-mp/
  6. Surely the Government should be looking into how people with mental health problems are looked after? Only last month a man in Plymouth with mental health issues killed 5 people. The bow and arrow killer from Norway killed 5 people, also had mental health issues.
  7. University courses that allow students to become nurses and doctors. I dont see how a good education is a negative for anyone, high or low immigration is a different issue.
  8. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m0010k4m/question-time-2021-14102021 It was interesting to hear what he had to say about COVID too, the first question. Prof Winston talks about gender 44 minutes into the clip. He states that you cannot change your gender, shock horror. Great to have free thinkers on QT.
  9. Wholesale prices have increased by more than 50%, you can look at some data and wholesale prices have doubled or trebled. I dont expect retail prices to treble, but an increase over 20% is very likely?
  10. Some of the media report the figure of 127 When the economy has recovered in 2023/24 and wages are higher, perhaps all of this will be forgotton? The Tories really have a powerfull media, if they can keep/get them on their side, it may work. In the meantime, the IMF are forcasting the UK to be the bottom of the G7 and 3% being in growth. https://www.ft.com/content/af12d4aa-0a3e-4758-83c4-0c4070b504fb
  11. If the judge thought she was rather duplicitous, I think she needs to go. Having aid that, most MPs experts at telling lies. It just those that tell lies and dont do it well that get caught out. Would a truthfull candidate ever get elected?
  12. But that would be called a crossbow, not a bow and arrow?
  13. After my energy company has gone bust, I am now with British Gas and wondering how much I will be paying for my energy. Cost with Peoples Energy = £60 per month, wholesale prices have increased by 40% New bill should be around £85 per month? https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/energy-data-and-research/data-portal/wholesale-market-indicators Or maybe not? This has helped push up wholesale gas prices across the world. Since January, they've risen 250%. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-58090533
  14. New polling shows 83% of Labour members believe the party should support changing the UK's electoral system to proportional representation. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-party-proportional-representation-corbyn-leader-polls-a9249196.html Two separate polls showing 76% and 83% in favour, that is Labour voters. Perhaps the number in favour might be fewer amonst right wing voters, but if the media were in favour, I believe it would sway 60%+ in favour of PR
  15. The Sure Start children's centres programme, introduced in 1999 by the last Labour government, has had its spending cut by two-thirds since 2010 and more than 500 centres have officially been closed.
