Re: "We are soooo Green...!?!"

Careful there. Mr Boro Boy has previously complained about people telling other people what someone else's views are.

Re: "We are soooo Green...!?!"

Western waste is shipped to the far east for 'recycling' which may be genuine. Or may result in illegal dumping.

Clearly the illegal dumping is bad, but what is the OP suggesting? That we don't (attempt to) recycle? That greens are deluded?

I don't know why people don't know who Matt Hancock is as I thought the Health Secretary was a high profile job! Maybe it is because he has only had the job for a shortish while.
I suggest it's because Brexit has driven almost all other domestic news out of the headlines.

Re: ALERT: Whirlpool Spin Dryer Issues... or is it!?!

A correction to the OP - the products affected are tumble dryers. Spin dryers are much less common and as far as I know have no particular fire risk. There is a useful guide on the Which? website to your rights and listing the known models affected. https://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/advice/whi...

Re: 40 stores to close... (part 3)

Topshop empire "didn't come close to collapse" according to the headline:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48617404

A relatively modest 50 stores (about 10% of the total) will be closing, which suggests that more will follow.

Re: Predates the Use of Money

The items being bartered do have a value and therefore the accounting treatment is to report the transactions at 'fair value'.

If you want to get technical about it, the guidance is contained in IFRS15.

Re: TV Licences: Up to 3.7 million over-75s to pay licence fee

..the "5th largest economy in the world"... You're mixing up your comparisons. The UK is indeed the 5th largest economy, behind USA, China, Japan and Germany. Clearly China doesn't have prosperity comparable to the other top 5 countries - it's the vast size of the country that puts it up there. GDP...
