its alright for you to say never had it so good

here is the economic disparity, I went to London for my mates stag do recently last year in March
and went to shoreditch as we were going to ministry to see john digweed.

Whilst there I witnessed a "wooden spoon" whitling shop?
where the # is the demand for wooden spoons, how can this guy still be in business , how did his business survive the recession? were all questions I had in my head.

In Scotland your're lucky if your high street has any open shops , never mind a #in spoon whitling shop
all we have a are cash convertors , gold shops, greggs, and pound shops

I have to watch what I spend on , in order to ensure I have enough money to feed myself, I havent been on holiday in 3 years.

I am well within my rights as a government employee to question my salary and hold the government to account for not paying me a living wage.



A living wage? What stolen from us tax payers? You wouldn't believe how good you've got it as a government employee. Pensions, holidays, rights, you really do have no idea how we live on the other side of the fence. If you can't afford to live on your wage give up the Jag and the trips to Waitrose and get on a bike and start peddling to Aldi. Good food at the sort of price YOU can afford
to live on.

Might not have the NHS for that much longer, at least in its present condition.

But it's sound though, coz we will still have Trident to protect us.


Most people in a first world nation should be able to afford most things, stands to reason really, else whats the darn point?

I agree with you as to as to everybody taking a trip somewhere like southern Asia or the sub-Saharan Africa and maybe they would appreciate what they have but the fact of the matter is that this is the UK and not a 3rd world nation, plus present socioeconomic climate applicable, its not like they would be able to afford said trip.

London's another world..... Might as well be on another continent to the rest of the UK. Things are very different there to elsewhere and it's quite nice to see people can live that sort of lifestyle whittling away.

There choice being the issue really, or at least the lack of.

For some people, the catch 22 situation is which they find themselves is simply debilitating and irreversible under present socioeconomic conditions.

Brexit won't fix the mess it will simply compound the problems we already face for quite some time to come.

LMAO yes!!
'Government worker' with a lifestyle funded solely by the taxes of private business. I get none of the perks a state employee gets but you don't see me whining online about it. My choice, as it is the choice of every government worker.
If my earning life started making me want to whine I'd just stop being self employed and get a job with a government department or local authority.

If people can't make a go of it then it's probably time to start encouraging them to emigrate. Worked great in the past. Look how all them Celts were encoraged from the UK periphery to move overseas to the States and Australia and look how well they've done there. Scots Irish are always at the top of the US earnings list number one or two, simple fact is if there's no god life here in the UK available it's time to go find it somewhere else. The shipyards on the Clyde and cotton mills ain't ever coming back by the look of things. If there's nothing to do they must seek it where the doing is happening these days. People move about

Mate I already shop in Aldi, lidl , asda , I take the train to work as I live about 10 minutes by car on the southside of Glasgow.
I dont drive because its too expensive to maintain

How the # is it stolen from tax payers ?
I pay taxes from my own salary as well you know , I do work for my money I dont just sit here and do nothing all day , like plenty of the managers in Government in every department of government.

Your making out that all government employees are thieves !

The government employee is probably just 'twiddling their thumbs' on their pc right now due to the pace of the work load on offer today. I can imagine the sweat dripping off their brow as they struggle on at work all the while living off our tax paying backs. Life's so hard working for the state it must be killing them

Well it's probably kind of hard to immigrate or even consider such when you cannot afford to eat or pay the rent.

You are correct though, things keep going as they are i imagine quite a few will indeed consider immigrating to greener pastures, especially future generations.

Ok knock Aldi on the head and go Tesco at 7.55pm and circle the bargain isle waiting for the 75% reduced food to approach. The savings are immense, just remember to get stuck in and wear a motorcycle helmet.

Yeah the Glaswegians can have a proper United Kingdom with therest of England etc if the Sout East gos its own way. It would probably equal things out a bit. Plus lots of peace, the City can go hire some other gun fodder mercenaries to go fight their overseas wars and we can enjoy the peace.

I agree completely, even their PAYE 'tax' is funded by private enterprise lol, it's just a paycut from the same funding source. Government employees are solely funded by private enterprise. If they don't like it just do something else and stop whining I say.

ASDA is the same but stay back from the reduced meat, as that brownish rainbow sheen can spell some right bad food poisoning as i have found out on occasion.
LoL

I've worked in Supermarkets, lot of the reduced stuff is fine but some of it is downright rancid, spoiled, and quite dangerous really.

My bird from rural poor Czech would argue different...lazy and weak Brits put to shame, has a lovely privately rented flat, decent car, and enough money to party with me and my friends at the weekend, can you imagine that?!
All funded by agency work wiping old people's arses.
Lazy whining Brit's is all.

hahah clearly you've never been to the reduced isle in Asda toryglen or Tesco in southside Glasgow at that time
its full of foreigners standing next to the poor supermarket employee peacefully trying to do their job as hundreds of bargain hungry shoppers fight over the reductions.

It's no surpise either that they place the romanian/ polish/ foods near those isles.

The poor reduction employee is surrounded by about 50 people.

oddly enough all wearing velour
