I'm curious as to how you can sell a park to a management company who have already taken out £500k in loans to improve the park, and believe that they'll invest £3.5m into improvement work. One has the suspicion that the improvement work will stall and they'll flip it to a developer.

They tried to flog the parks off 5 years ago, the Greens campaigned on the issue in the local elections. Eventually thanks to public pressure Labour climbed down and changed their plans, then had the audacity to claim that they had saved the parks!!

 

So many Labour councillors now are lazy and / or bent in Knowsley its ridiculous, and its because they've had no real opposition for so long.

 

Now the Greens, Lib Dems and Independents are starting to hold them to task, but it's a long journey. The ruling Labour group have appointed a 'cabinet' and all council decisions are being made behind closed doors by this 'cabinet' instead of in open council meetings as they should be. Its corrupt as fuck!

More evidence of what some term 'Greedflation'. If Biden and the Americans can see the problem why cant the our Bank of England and Government? 

 

It's all a big fucking con. I feel sorry for the youngsters struggling to keep their homes and the ones struggling to feed themselves and pay rent. As well as Sunak and Co that fella at the top of the BoE needs to be swinging from a lamppost, It would set the right example.

hahaha the words off it's head although I hate to admit.... I had a pair years back. They were smart as fuck. I lived down south then though so got away with it, I'd rightly get the shit kicked out of me if I wore them up here.

Former ministers from ALL parties. So advice given by former Tory government ministers who were preaching the same stuff as now but about 20/30 or 40 years ago. Hmmm!

True. As with the climate and river pollution maybe reality's hit home for a few.

I despise shit like this. Sorry, we just can’t have poor people infecting our school…

My mum won a scholarship to Blackburn House. My nan and grandad couldn’t afford the official school straw boater, but she was allowed to wear a close match, until it came to the official school photo, when she was excluded because it wasn’t the correct head wear. Always a way to make you feel shit about being poor.

You'll love this fella. The up and coming, the darling of Davos. He's saying what a lot of billionaires think out loud.

 

 

 

He's got an apt name the gurning cunt.

 

 

 

How did this self made man start his business? Obviously by working harder than everyone and being grateful to his boss ?

Sort of, he started his business with a loan from his boss, who he had a good relationship with, maybe because his boss was his grandfather. 

Don't be lazy, just get a loan off your grandfather and start a business. Cunt

A few years ago, Timbo revealed that he first bought a St Kilda apartment for “180k” and then had “my boss at the time approach me to renovate it while he fronted the money

 

He fronted the money. The boss did. Golly it must be nice to have an employer who doesn’t think you’re a lazy arsehole, but rather reaches into their pocket to help out a young fella.

 

Timbo went on to say that he later “took out a $150,000 loan using the $34,000 from his grandfather

 

 

Childish but I like this last paragraph;

 

The next time Timbo chunters on about any aspect of economic policy, or about the current predicament of employer-employee relationships, he should be forced to staple to his forehead how he really “made it”. Lord knows there’s enough room.

This is getting worse since all schools were forced to become academies run by trusts.

 

At my youngest daughters school now the kids have to have a rucksack with the school name and emblem on it. They get the first one free when they start in year 7, but every time it wears out or they lose it, it's £25 to replace it! Just what you need when you haven't a pot to piss in.

 

A few years back they also stopped the free school buses for kids like mine who live miles away from the school as a lot of pupils do. This now means extra costs for bus fairs for a lot of families, and horrendous traffic around the school for kids lucky enough to get a lift. This has the effect also of the buses to Prescot being overcrowded and a lot of kids having to wait for the next one.

 

This has led to a lot of kids being late for school on a regular basis. The schools answer to this? Threaten the parents with fines. And if you get fined both parents get a fine each!

 

Arseholes the lot of them.

Fuck paying 25 quid for a rucksack what are the school going to do send the plod round if they’ve got a cheaper one in town from Sports Direct or wherever? 
 

The top brass at these chain schools pay themselves an absolute fortune and micro manage the fuck out of the teaching staff and barely acknowledge the support staff.

If they don't have the correct uniform including the rucksack they will be excluded! Permanently if they repeatedly break the uniform rules. Fucking pathetic isn't it?

 

I note all these trusts have about 8 to 10 or so academies and they pool the budgets for all schools. The best performing 2-3 get massive chunks of the budget, the rest get left to rot!
