MelKelly: Another way to fight : THE POWER OF THE POUND
This post from the Guardian says it all so well that I am going to take the liberty of posting it. If Melkelly objects to this I am sure he/she will let me know:
Another way to fight : THE POWER OF THE POUND
As well as strikes, the British people can use the power of the pound. Every pound has power
Move our money from Barclays, HSBC, Santander, Tesco Bank to the Nationalised banks or the Nationwide. That will increase the health of the nationalised banks quicker, increase the share price and help reduce the deficit
Don't shop at Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Prudential, Boots and any other tax avoiding company. If boycotts worked for South Africa they can work for the British people. Remember companies like Boots and Prudential are making the deficit worse by holding board meetings abroad to avoid paying the tax they are due to pay. Boots should have paid £280 million but paid £14 million instead. Don't give Boots and Prudential our business or our money. 7 million people in Britain have savings and pensions with Prudential. If they move out then we should move out of Prudential
Shop in Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi, the Co-Op, Farmfoods - good quality low prices and they pay their British taxes - which helps cut the deficit
Don't buy the national lottery tickets.
Don't buy the Sun, the News of the World or the Times, the Telegraph or the Mail as they are the coalition mouthpieces - wormtongues - not newspapers.
Cancel your Sky subscription - why give an organisation your money when it illegally spys on royalty, politicians, celebrities, union members. If MI5 did this we would be up in arms.
Take your coalition MP to court for fraud (as every policy implemented was not in Liberal or Tory manifestos but they were on the reform website www.reform.co.uk well before the election. Vince Cable wrote a paper before the election which proves the Tories and the Liberals were working together on the REFORM manifest before the election - all the policies are on the website - just not in the manifestos. These MPs are guilty of committing fraud.
Cancel every direct debit and only pay cash - and refuse to pay the charges if not paying by direct debit - why give British Gas etc. your money every month
Lift all your money on payday - don't leave it in the bank
Cash in stocks and shares ISAs - why give the stock market your money when they speculate to increase prices on food and also helped crash the banking system
Move your pension funds to a British pension provider - if there are any left
Good morning, I am writing this from steamy Cebu city, the Queen of the South and the oldest city in the Philippines. I often come here for a few days break because, although it's just as hot as South China, the beaches are better and the girls are friendlier.
'The girls are friendlier'? If ur looking for love that's fine ur life I just want to say ur nearly 50 and fat soooooooooooooooooooooo good luck - u can always find a blind girl. I have a question: was I a mistake? Due to u and mum having uhhhhh a sleep after u got divorced. Mum's a bit vague.
You were definitely not an accident (launches into long explanation). Anyway, here's a poem I wrote after you arrived:
The night before you pushed and struggled out I slept on the ground, ice and snow about That was Art's path; I shivered coldly My belly empty, sod and soul solely
But then you came, your hair was fine Brightness eyes, beautiful son of mine! I never knew before what life meant Until you arrived an…
Many years ago I was in the State of Paraná, Brazil, listening to the roar of the greatest (by volume) waterfall in the world. The Chilean girl I was with giggled at the name and explained that, in Santiago, this was a way of saying 'useless'.
Jair Bolsonaro seems certain to be elected President of Brazil later this month on a ticket of shooting blacks. Balls O' Na doesn't quite put it that way, of course, but that's what it amounts to. Balls O' Blood won't be going out there himself to do the shooting, naturally: young Brazilian worker boys will be paid to take the bullets while he and his generals sit in Rio sipping cachaça, counting the reais and chortling.
Well, so what? If the people of Brazil want to shoot their blacks, or at least have them shot, what can one do but grimace and turn to the sports pages? The idea of sending in the gunboats to try to instill a bit of civilization into the Savage World is not only unfashionable but too expensive. No doubt…
