Some handy data if you're planning on staying up until at least your own constituency declares:
Constituency Declaration times 2010
Source: Election 2010: what's my constituency declaration time?
I'll likely stay up to see what happens overall, as no doubt things will be decided by 05:00 or so at the latest unless we get a nail-bitingly close race. My own constituency isn't set to declare before 12:00 (mid-day judging by the use of 24h times and at least one has '00:01').
At least the muslims have it right. It's against their religion to lend money at interest.In four years time, you have to pay £60 a week in tax before you even start contributing to public services, as the first 60 quid is fucking interest and maintenance on gilts :/
Sure, but utterly unrealistic. Risk vs reward, if you're lending with no profit then it's all risk and 0 reward other than a warm fuzzy feeling and cats are much cheaper.Some altruism... and possibly some realisation that lending money particularly for new businesses, improves society for everyone, including the lender. That sounds better than just sitting on a big pile of cash, doesn't it ?
Nath. If you're really interested in understanding that, I can't tell you.Genuine question - if there were no direct profit in it, why would anyone lend money?
It has worked in the past but it leads to verrrry slow growth due to lack of credit.Sure, but utterly unrealistic. Risk vs reward, if you're lending with no profit then it's all risk and 0 reward other than a warm fuzzy feeling and cats are much cheaper.
