Re: MBNA to exit UK market

I'm not sure the headline is quite right. MBNA (Maryland Bank something or other) was bought by Bank of America a few years back. MBNA USA has now become Bank of America Card Services but Bank of America has now decided to sell off other chunks of MBNA. I think MBNA Canada has already been sold, and...

Re: Snap General Election annouced 8th June.

..You are correct in saying the independent Boundary Commission decides on boundaries. But it was the Tories who decided that it was in their interests to cut the number of MP's as most of those whose seats will disappear will belong to Labour not Tories. Another cynical power grab by the Tories. C...

Re: We are not paying enough in disablity benefits

...There is no harm in borrowing money to help make the economy richer or in running a deficit. Yes there is. See Greece.

Re: We are not paying enough in disablity benefits

I am not accusing any one party, I do not think the elderly in need or the disabled have been treated well by the Labour, Tory or Tory/LibDem coalition.... Yes you are. Don't fib.

Re: We are not paying enough in disablity benefits

Well I guess we all have our different opinions and never the twain will meet. I'm happy with that. It is what politics is all about. I'm talking about economics not politics.

Re: An Accident waiting to happen...

Money spent tarting up a tower block by cladding the outside - meanwhile reports that the fire alarms weren't working...... and obviously the fire suppression (if it existed) was inadequate.
