    I'm feeling like someone is kicking up dust to bamboozle me when i read stuff like "Minister didn't pay for patio, her partner promises to pay", and some such. Stop treating me like a attention deficit child and give me some news.

    Meh, it would be alright if anything was actually done about it.

    I was reading about our Attorney General the other day, Geoffrey Cox, before he became Attorney General he was still a barrister and was earning slightly under £1million a year.

    He claimed for a house in London (as his ward wasn't near London) which I suppose legally and technically is fine, but I mean in principle, he earned £1million a year and claimed a house probably worth a couple of mill from the tax payer.

    How many years of earning £1 mil does it take to buy a house in London? An uneducated shitty estimated guess from a foreigner says at least seven. Fair enough you claim a house if you can't afford it and you are legally entitled to it, no?

    I guess he will have to return the house once he leaves his position? So the house will probably be sold and the money + possible earnings from the sale are returned to the tax payers.

    Financially he'd probably be better off buying a house in the long run, but can't afford one in London, so he claims one he is legally entitled to.

    Am I wrong?

    I mean sure, you're right, but that's probably because of his expectations are super high.

    He could easily buy a house and commute in like hundreds of thousands of Londoners do, but they don't earn £1million a year.

    Being a MP should be a privilege, not a privileged position.

    Especially in a climate where we're criticising the political elite, it just seems like it's a perfect time to question stuff like this.

    What other public job provides the same? I just can't believe you wouldn't feel ashamed of yourself knowing the situation of your constituents yet you're frockling around with bags of £.

    Get real. Nobody would turn it down.

    That's why the system needs to change. Because humans can't be counted on to "do the right thing".

    Lulz :)

    No. Because it's humans watching a telly screen, as opposed to the ref. And they're still clearly wrong. Plus, accurate decisions in football aren't actually desireable in all situations :)



    Plus: Advertising :eek:

    Don't tell me you are referring to the new animated one. It feels imo, through and through as a kids movie.

    Nope. Its a Spider-Man movie, and probably the best one ever made. But even if you do dismiss it as a kids' movie, watch it for the visuals, which are incredible.

    Totally.

    Tried to pay my tax through there last night. Ended up setting up a direct transfer from my bank website instead. It's a piece of shit isn't it.

    The fact that, despite having nothing to do and two bikes downstairs, I'm sat up here rather than going outside for a little pootle about.

    Why am I like that? :(

    If he's such a good builder, why doesn't he embark on a HUGE infrastructure project? - Aren't the roads in America famously awful?

    DaGaffer Down With That Sorta Thing

    Road building is a State problem (which is why they're so shit), the only time they've been able to use Federal money was the interstate system in the 1950s when Eisenhower cheated by making road building a military project (the roads were for moving ICBMs around).

    Much as I detest Trump, he doesn't have that many good options for public infrastructure projects, largely thanks to the short-sightedness of his own party over decades.
