Re: IS Teenager Shaminna Begum to lose British Citizenship

She has been treated no differently than any other person in her situation. In my view it is important that Justice is done. Even more so in that the decision by the Government has been widely condemned as wrong. Without Legal Aid that is not possible. So I have no problems with her or anyone else ...

Nationwide 5% Regular Saver closing Fri - workaround here

The Nationwide 5% Regular Saver account is closing on Friday - it pays 5% on £250 increments each month, for 12 months. If you have one and it matures after Friday, you won't be able to open a new one. Here's the fix to lock in another (final) 12 months: Close it today. You can do this online: they ...

Re: Did you know this political party still existied?

I'm wary of that SDP party - it's not the "same" SDP that we remember from the early 80s. It's become a refuge for many former UKIP supporters.

How about New Labour as a name (after Tony Blai'rs rebranding) - as that is what they are!
The halcyon days of the Labour government feel like a long long time ago at the moment.

Re: "The real reason British teenagers are so unhappy"

There's too much stimulus. Phones, telly, 'clubs', parties etc. There always seems to be something that the kids need to be doing. Instead of learning that life is mostly not like that. So when the stimulus is taken away and the realisation kicks in that they are not the centre of the universe, they...

Re: New process?

In the absence of literally anything else, I'd support more formality in the buying and selling of shares, as per RIchards idea. I hoped that the new year might spark some kind of new approach and I'm happy to try anything out that means we converge more frequently to plot a route. Activity here is ...
