  • Pros

    You get behind the wheel of a new car for lower monthly repayments than a personal loan or hire purchase.

    You don’t need to worry about the future trade-in or resale value of the car, as the lender guarantees your car will be worth a minimum sum at the end of the deal.

    It’s flexible. You’ve several options at the end of it – you can even b…[Read more]

  • Did nobody read/hear about the man in his 50s who was asked to participate in a routine random drugs test before he went onto a site to represent his company? He failed the test and was asked to leave the site. His own company did further testing, which also proved positive for opioids and eventually the man lost his job. He insisted that the had…[Read more]

    I haven’t checked the odds at all but on record alone AJ should be favorite really shouldn’t he?

    (but I’m still quietly rooting for Mr Parker over here).

  • No your right it’s pathetic.

    And yet officers still fail…..

    Old Macallans are very valuable. Your bottle is probably worth several thousand pounds of it is unopened.

    So the whisky should not escape from the bottle at all unless it’s been opened, however each bottle will have a slightly different fill level from the start, especially on older bottle as the bottling was done with inaccurate equipment.

    On e…[Read more]

    Time is what stops everything happening at once.

    However, I understand that one way of looking at spacetime is as a big four dimensional block with everything that ever “was” or ever “will be” in space and time frozen in – I suppose we just move through the block visiting different places in spacetime.

    @scarymary Your saying that everything is…[Read more]

    There’s a lot of hypocrisy and crocodile tears going on. It’s professional sport. Cheating is inherent: think Atherton ball tampering, Dean Richard’s bloodgate (which was not a unique occurrence in rugby), and any number of football,, athletics etc etc cases of cheating.

    Smith’s initial refusal to resign just reflects the assumption across many…[Read more]

    Is this really ‘hate speech’?

    In my view it is quite the opposite. Someone like this taking the most sacrosanct Nazi symbolism of the entire regime and making such an open mockery of it is about as far from antisemitism as it is possible to get.

    To take offense is to totally and utterly miss the point.

    Outlawing offensive jokes should be far…[Read more]

    • Being able to be rude to or joke about the prime minister is free speech. Joking about the mass deaths of a large number of people due to their heritage isn’t in my opinion.

      I don’t agree with what’s happening in Turkey, but I don’t think it is the same.

  • Cloned plates are a problem. I knew someone who kept getting parking tickets from Coventry when he’d never been in Coventry in his life. The police found out that someone cloned his number plate. At least he got the letters and could fix it without too much hassle. But when the police use a number plate in a speeding case as evidence of the…[Read more]

    But I find it harder to justify the enormous wages and importance of someone who works in the city making money , in itself a pretty abstract concept, in an artificial way that will likely never enter or benefit the real economy.

    @songbird Actually the city in many ways is the real economy – all that cash that Gordon Brown and Tony Blair were…[Read more]

  • I think the question of life elsewhere in the Universe is a no brainer, with a very high probability of intelligence somewhere. The numbers are just too overwhelming. I think its far more interested to speculate whether there is ever any likelihood of us ever crossing paths with it (or them with us) – even indirectly through EM waves. Given our…[Read more]

  • Sort out the inventory and the state the property was left in by the previous occupant with the agent. Be meticulous and take photos to back yourself up, especially of the state of cleanliness, signs of damp and any marks or chips on the paintwork. This will pay off if you decide to move on. In our experience agents don’t like to give up the…[Read more]

  • @sammy OMG do your history. There were plenty of Labour govts at the time who also starved those industries of investment. They also had far higher rates of tax- both corporation and personal – then they do now and still could not afford the investment.

    Over paying their top directors. The pay of directors is insignificant compared to the costs…[Read more]

    I agree lots of shills were saying in the comments that this was faked but then they released another unedited video to prove it wasn’t.. also other people posted pictures of them get the same results. Also why would Steven risk his rep and ton of subscribers on making a fake video that could easily be tested. Amazon just quickly changed the…[Read more]

    Funny how youtube doesn’t censor anti christian videos or ISIS propaganda videos yet takes this down as fast as possible.

  • Same happened to me just about all my comments I have posted have been “detected as spam” even though they are not spam. Disqus is pathetic for censoring peoples views like this.. bunch of fascist liberal control freaks.
