If only we were ALL 20 years younger, Ron . . . youth really IS wasted on the young! Wink

Actually, if you read the fine print in the proposal to improve the airport in St. Helena, you will find that the REAL reason for those improvements is in case the British government has to quickly fly in SAS commandos to keep Napoleon from attempting to escape the island!

Thanks Edward.....my opinion, we just have to get out of Europe!

I reckon there could well be a majority who think this way, and Cameron, along with other puppets will find out when the next election arrives.

More power to your elbow Nigel Farage and UKIP. For goodness sake get us out of this group fiddle.

By the way, yes that winds me up! lol

Heres my answer to get the economy moving AND save tax payers millions!!

SCRAP ALL BENEFITS (Here me out please! ) yes, scrap ALL state benefits including State Pensions, Child allowance, sick pay etc. These benifits are complicated and cost billions to administrate.

Before you think I'm a 'right-wing nutter', please let me explain!

Set a minimum wage at say £6.00 per hour .

Pay EVERYONE on the Electorial Role (working or not and earning under £30,000 ? per annum), the eqivilant to 30 hours min wage ie

30x£6.00 per week (x4 = £720.00 per month) 

THIS would cost the tax-payer much less than the present annual combined welfare bill and Administration costs.

Those who you dont or cant work you will have enough to live on without any other state benefits or company 'sick-pay' schemes.

 If you are a low-paid, part-time or casual worker the extra £720 per month (double if you are a couple) on top of your wage will leave you enough to pay your way and money to spend (or save) on extras.

The savings from reduced admin costs, the spending power in our pockets would allow more start-up businesses without the employer needing to pay high wages sick/maternity pay, he/she cant afford.

Growth will take off and inflation will fall.

The High street will boom again.

The crime rate and justice costs will fall .

HAs any Party got the guts to try this???

So simple to admin. using info from those registered to vote AND living in this country lists, already compiled. perhaps a short trail 'pilot' scheme in , say the north east/west, would test the theory?

GIVE IT A GO!!!! Have you got the Bottle???

Interesting theory Lea and I kind of like the way you think, but not sure that all points you suggest would result in getting us out of the economic black hole that we are in.

In think taxation is the biggest problem we have, so why not cut it as they did in Hong Kong? See what happened there!
