Lol, I do that all the time as my business is general building/property and grounds maintenance.
I ran away from home aged 16, slept rough for six months, then rebuilt my life. I have a 2:1 chemistry degree I've never used, just wanted to prove I could do it to challenge the whining folk who make out it's so hard to achieve in Britain.
Whining folk who are likely cattle employees who vote labour.

I choose personal independence with all the challenges it brings.
Others choose the comfort blanket of socialism and being an employee.
It is always a choice.

Unfortunately for them you're absolutely right /I agree , wise choices are the answer , not complaining at the govt of the day .
They've offered those choices all along , which is commendable really . But it's fair to say imo that the masses were educated in a way which directed them to the milking sheds in the first place .
hence we've come a long way , but nearly nowhere , since the days of the East India Company . It was our choice to ignore a bad education , perhaps , rather than having trumped those who haven't been shown their opportunities

Agreed.
I also think a vote for Corbyn's wet blanket socialism is a vote for cattle to lay their head on the pillow of laziness and no personal responsibility.
Some folk cry that socialism is the future for true Brits, I would argue that socialism is the perceived future for lazy Brits who need a wet nurse.

Lol, I drink way too much, but I created the mechanism which funded my drinking.
Others just whine that their wet nurse hasn't provided enough.

I am not a fan of his foreign policy (or what passes for it). His views on border control, dont think his NHS plam will fix the problems (nor do i agree with the torys NHS plans) dont like the idea of ending austerity completely either as we need to spend better, just not cut vital services like education, health and disability.

I also dont like Diane Aboots SJW views that I find racist and condescending.


Thanks for indulging me, always good to get an insight into the views of folk who don't agree with me!

Have you seen the policy update on the NHS plans? I think it sounds like the right way to go (and obviously most certainly better than the current seemingly deliberate underfunding). www.jeremyforlabour.com...

For what it's worth, I am absolutely on board with Corbyn's foreign policy, for too long we have been involved in decimating foreign lands where it suits our interests (when I say our I mean the ruling class) under the guise of 'helping'. And I am quite confident it is a guise when I look at the atrocities we simultaneously turn a blind eye to and even support in a twisted way (supplying weapons to Saudi for use Yemen springs to mind). On defence, I prefer to spend money on the very real threats to the health and lives of our people such as the NHS than ridiculous and useless WMD such as Trident (or if they must then spend it on weapons or defence more suited to current threats).

Borders, well the Tories may talk the talk but their record has shown that they have not been able to bring down immigration and it seems that new trade deals will only bring immigration from different parts of the world. Now if folk have a problem with immigration on the grounds of wages and conditions, then tackling these issues at employer level will naturally regulate numbers while at the same time ensuring all workers are fairly treated. Immigration can be good for the economy and the country, but good Tory economy does not a better deal for the average joe make. It's what a government does with a good economy that matters to me.

Austerity is a con, a guise to fulfil a political ideology of shrinking the state and transferring wealth upwards. In which areas would you like to see austerity continued?

I want withdrawal from the middle east and the halt to follow the USA on its petty world policing.

What I despise is Corbyn traitorous views on the Falkland’s and the British who live on those Islands. THAT is the deal breaker on his foreign policy. I can’t support a Prime minster that will surrender one centimetre of British soil where BRITISH people have been living for over 150 years.

I have to agree on the Falkland's, realistically Argentina has no real claim on them and never did, there claim is based on Spain granting them the Island's AFTER Spain had lost them to the French whom sold them to us (only the Portuguese ever settled them before us and only at a waling station which was later evicted from the island's by the royal navy and it is worth noting that NO argentinian government or citizen has ever ruled over or lived in the Falkland's until there short lived invasion).

Some of Corbyn's Views are too extreme left but on the other hand May's policy's are too Extreme to the right (Economic not to be confused with other forms of Right wing as you know).
But remember he can not act on his personal opinion unless the house of common's agree's on that point, as such it would require a motion to be passed, he can safely be prime minister (if in the unlikely event he does become so) and the falkland's will remain our's regardless.

Oh do # off.

I worked my arse off to get two degrees (including distinction and merit in applied mathematics) having come from a sink estate and was mentoring and lecturing at University until a car ran me over and made me disabled - is it my fault I can no longer afford to live because the Conseervatives have punished the disabled so much for purely ideological reasons and made us the first countrry in the world found guilty by the UN for Crimes Against Humanity?

Will be voting Labour - no chance I could ever vote Tory scum especially with them cutting the NHS, education, social care so they can keep giving tax cuts to their rich mates, rig the banks and make the UK a tax haven.


If you have 2 degrees in mathematics then I have a doctorate in Philosophy. Your grammar is not degree level, neither is mine, I suspect I have just been trolled.


However, just in case I am wrong, I'll apologise beforehand, and sympathise with your situation. Still, you can still work from home. You obviously have a computer, and can use it, you say you have the qualifications, you could easily do online tutoring work either for yourself or for a company?

If you are degree-level educated I am sure you will have already thought of this, and being a somewhat fiery handicapped person, your sense of independence will be quite high, so why are you relying on the government when you allegedly have the intelligence and through that you have options?

No, it is not your fault. It was the fault of the person who caused your disability, it certainly wasn't the fault of luck, good or bad. There are many disabled people in this country, many probably worse off than you. Cameron and Co certainly stuck it to the disabled of this country during their reign, yet I agreed that a review of disability was right, but the horrendous stories of people with genuine disabilities being told they could work and receiving reductions in their claims was out and out wrong. Money and aid should go to those who genuinely need it, and they shouldn't have to feel under any form of stigma in receiving it.

A good way out of Brexit.

Lose the election and in the incoming govt either cancels the brexit vote or they have another vote which goes the other way.

degree of dificulty on this one - low

In all of this, there is an individual social responsibility. The government are mandated to provide both the tools and the resources by which the individual can improve themselves and their circumstances. The lazy will fail, whilst the hard working will succeed and contribute. Those that fail will only be able to blame themselves, but a means and path for them should be available once they understand that only their own endeavour will make them a success, it won't be handed to them on a plate for nothing. Business and industry is also mandated to provide the the tools and the resources as well.

This is why I am not voting.


I can vote for labour and I can because of the above vote for conservatives.


I could get behind the cuts for JSA with the benifit cap as its meant to be a short term benfit, able bodied people should get there arses off to work.

But ESA and the formsr DLA should have been ring fenced along with being excluded from the benfit cap. And ATOS needs to face criminal responsibility for there disgusting, degrading and medically incompetent actions.
