    I missed Sunday Politics which sounds interesting, so want to watch on BBC iPlayer.
    Website says “Available soon after” it finishes @ noon.
    How long is “soon”

    Speaks volumes about how out of touch the BBC is and the agenda that anything a tory speaks about is not worth listening to even for a few seconds more whatever the subject. If a Labour spokesman had been talking the show would probably still be running.

    As soon as you’ve paid you’re Licence Fee – whether you actually need one or not; we don’t care. Failure to pay could result in an unlimited fine or, while we still have the possibility, imprisonment.

    Wee Dougie claimed on Sunday Politics that the extra £450 we are supposed to have spent paying VAT is since 2010. The Shadow Chancer says it’s per annum. That’s all clear then!

    That means I represent their beliefs, hopes, and aspirations.

    Namely

    1. Full integration into the EUSSR
    2. Bumsex
    3. Redefinition of the Christian Concept and meaning of Marriage and its importance for normal family life
    4. The continuation of QUANGOs – in spite of what I said early 4 years ago
    5. The continuation of Funny Money – aided and abetted by the Bank of England
    6. The selective enrichment of a minority of the population by (a) #5 above and (b) tacit acceptance of outrageous pay-offs / bonuses / under-the-counter deals
    7. The continued weakening and evisceration of our Armed Forces
    8. However, in spite of #7 above, I am desperate to have my own war – one that I can call my own, and from which I will achieve Fame and Glory.
    There are other points but I must go to a photo-shoot in my Sunday clothes.

    1. It is shocking to state that a Ukip office is above Max Clifford’s. The mere mention of such proximity provides an association which does not exist. Shame on you BBC

    And the tax threshold would be raised so people on minimum wage would pay no tax at all. And national insurance would be treated as part of tax. So people at the bottom would be hugely helped, and just as importantly they’d be weaned off state dependency.

    But yes, the basic principle of a flat tax is if you earn £10,000 you pay £3,000 on it. If you earn £1,000,000 you pay £300,000. Somehow the left see that as unfair.

    The coalition are squandering the time now to repair the economy whilst the B.o.E rates are in their favour because both parties know they will not win next year.

    They are also hampered somewhat by EU rules.

    The moves to allow the tax authorities direct access to bank accounts reflects a desperate move to ensure books can be balanced once the interest rate picture changes – consider the national equivalent of looking down the back of your neighbours sofa.

    This doesn’t vindicate Labour – who are responsible for initiating the situation that the economy is in now, but the Cameron government has really been asleep at the wheel in terms of fixing the problems.

    There is much economic hardship ahead which will likely hit before the year end.

    Ockham's Razor says:

    Exactly. The UK road insurance industry acts completely differently to those on the continent. I do pick up the occasional speeding fine but face no prospect of endorsement – unless a very serious accident is involved. In the UK, the points for doing 33mph in a 30mph zone automatically sets the totting up process going even if it is when no one is about and there was no additional risk. It is wholly quantitative whilst error of a qualitative nature gets away Scot free. We kid ourselves that we have safe roads as a result of this boneheaded thinking. Chief constables go on the TV and say speed kills. It does not. Misjudgments kill. These may involve speed but equally so may not.

    There will be another area of concern. Residency. Suppose your vehicle is seen to be in another country for more than 90 days? Then your residency status may be called into question. Directive 2004/38/EC on the right to move and reside freely often conflicts with residency requirements of member states. It is an unholy mess. Normally EU law prevails but it does not stop awkward moments arising if they use this as a spying tool as seems a racing certainty.

    the peasants are revolting says:

    It might be better to do some variation of the following:

    Write a letter to TVL stating that you, as the lawful occupier are withdrawing Implied Right of Access in accordance with English Common Law, and any incursions onto your dwelling will be regarded as trespass, and agents of TVL or Capita may face prosecution, including potentially fines and imprisonment.
    Similarly, any further correspondence from TVL, Capita etc.. will be regarded as Harrassment in in accordance with English Common Law, and their agents may face prosecution not limited to fines and imprisonment.
    …and sign it “The lawful occupier”.

    They may write back to try and force you to give your name, but you don’t have to, because they are not crown servants and have no warrant. if they write again, they can be sued for harassment if you can be bothered.

    in order for them as fellow private citizens to gain access to your property, they have to present a warrant, and it would probably be presented by someone who you can’t withdraw implied right of access from, such as a copper.

    in order for them to obtain a warrant, they have to have reasonable evidence that you may be breaking the law, and it’s hard to get that evidence without harrassing or trespassing.
    They also have to present information to you about how they detected you, in order for you to prepare a defence – which they probably won’t do, because that would mean either incriminating themselves; or revealing the schematics for the detection equipment.
    You can detect the presence of analogue signals emitted, and use an RF scanner to work out the frequency and source (an oscillator inside), and if it’s coming down an internet cable, your IP address will be known to your ISP (but they may not want to pass that data on unless pressed, as with illegal streaming).

    It’s also possible to detect digital signals:
    h**p://www.promax.es/ing/products/monitoring-systems/DEIDE3/detection-and-identification-of-digital-tv-and-radio-signals

    Or you could try this… h**ps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZBM-pkJPio

    Simplest thing is just to have a normal computer on a desk-like structure in your lounge, with a large screen, and no aerials of any kind, unless you’re an electronic engineer doing comms a hobby.
    And if you feel like watching some previously recorded video, then that’s none of Capita’s business (literally).

    Free schools are started where people, churches or communities want them, not necessarily in the area of greatest need.

    Across the UK there are more primary school places this year (4.4 million) than there are primary-age children (4 million). But the problem is that the places aren’t necessarily where the children are.

    Because local authorities aren’t involved in setting up free schools they can’t plan or place them in areas where extra capacity is needed. But the free schools take away state money for education in the area that would otherwise be going to the local authorities.

    I find the easiest way to stay inside the law is not to have equipment with the digital / analog receiving capability on site (at home) and not to watch iPlayer live from an internet address which is not associated with a license.

    This frees up lots of time to do much more constructive stuff online, and for entertainment, uTube / Vimeo are perfect, alongside regular DVD purchase. (EBay is excellent)

    Recommend anyone to keep track of what they consume per week of TV – keep a diary for a month – note what you watch, how long for, and what you felt like before / after and about what you saw.

    eg.

    Thursday: 3 hours. News + QT. Guff – pissed off.

    Friday, 9 till 11, Film x : Was total crap. (Confirms Rotten Tomato rating of 20%) Ads annoying.

    Look back after a month, figure out how much of your life was wasted and what the TV experience did to your overall mood and stress levels, and then reflect that time could be better spent watching better films, taking up a hobby, chilling with the kids / wife, decorating, or just watching sports on the BT service or down the pub with friends.

    The saving on the TV license is enough to part fund more productive activities through the year which would likely improve overall quality of life.

    The key realization is that trying to be sneaky about watching but not paying for live TV is not worth it.

    I take the, admittedly unfashionable, view that the only spe’ed to dr!ve in order to ensure no accidents is zero mph. Or its equivalent in metric, zero kmh. (No charge for the conversion! :-) )

    Technology has favoured quantitative entrapment methods. So people concentrate on that as an ideal.

    A few seconds reflection will show that this cannot be the case.

    It is the qualitative aspects of dr!ving that one witnesses the most. Inattention, distraction, showing off, dr’unkenness, cutting corners, jumping lights, turning without indication, turning to the right to turn left and vice versa. They maybe accompanied by inappropriate spe’ed but that again comes down to lack of judgement . No arbitrary limit will ever ensure no accidents.

    Every journey should be made as if it were the first. Anyone who says they are a good dr!ver is heading for a fall. Complacency is the biggest danger. Unfortunately many people in authority do not possess the wit to see that, let alone understand it.

    Bloke from Boko says:

    90 per cent of the girls are Christian and they alone will be sold into slavery- the UK is a predominantly Xtian country and should at least speak out for its co-religionist currently undergoing an unprecedented wave of persecution abroad. During the 19thC one of Britain’s roles in the world was to stamp out slavery. It helps give a bit of dignity to a culture saturated in an “enrichissez-vous” outlook. The jihads of Northern Muslims against the kuffars of southern Nigeria were the main source of the slaves trafficked in the Atlantic slave trade. Under sharia, slavery is normal and slaving is reviving along with the revival of back to basics Islam.. The attitude which orthodox Islam fosters towards women, and particularly to underage women and especially non-Muslim women has been amply demonstrated in the 80 or 90 (Christian cultural background) child grooming court cases, invariably by largish gangs, which have occurred in almost every British urban area with a Muslim community present, during the last year or so. To some extent, our daughters are exposed to dangers closely related to the ones these girls faced.

    Clearly hated filled lefty trolls excepted blog participants are clearly independently minded. I have wondered about fashion because I have noticed that people all seem to be thinking the same thing at the same time, or liking the same type of music or wearing the same style of clothing. In my wondering I included the possibility that there might be a shared consciousness which was sort of floating about, not in the means of explaining as above sea level at some altitude but more in a yet to be discovered dimension which our shared consciousness automagically connects with without deliberate intervention.
    I have noticed these fashionable things and I have noticed things that are popular ( like a block buster movie ) also affect the reality of people’s thinking.

    All excellent advice if I may say so. TV is addictive: it stimulates endorphin production, opioids in other words. It also makes you less discriminating and more likely to believe whatever lies and propaganda the broadcasters wish to put out. The more you watch the less discriminating and the more gullible you become. That’s why TV advertising is so expensive — it actually works; even if you don’t think it influences you, believe me, it does.

    So junk your telly and start thinking for yourself! We’ve been TV-free for years and it’s fantastic.

    I think it’s a shame he returned to the job, as he obviously would not have been appointed in that condition. He has been a writer and could have followed that path.

    Black people know they are black.

    I have a wonderful and very funny friend who tends to shout out of the window, “Shut up you black bastards!” when people are making a noise outside. She is one of a huge family of Susu and so completely black herself.

    The first time I heard her shout this, I had tears rolling down my face.

    All the problems of colour in the UK, we make for ourselves. The whites are mostly the worst about it.

    BBC impartiality on controversial and unproven
    issues like climate change has been totally compromised
    because of multi-million pound funding from the EU.
    The BBC will never be able to broadcast an balanced report
    on such issues while sucking at the teat of a body that promotes
    discredited climate-change theories.

    Just had a look around, and it seems my bias is out of date.

    Kia I found in the US years back, and they were awful back then.

    Compilation of reliable cars:

    http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/best-cars/64280/most-reliable-cars

    There are two Kia’s in the top 10.

    Their 7 year warranty’s may be costing them $ if they are still only seeing 81% reliability in the 4 to 8 year age range:

    h**p://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/cars/article-2186477/Top-reliable-reliable-cars.html

    CarMD in the US have ranked Hyundai as being top of their health index in 2013:

    h**p://www.autoblog.com/2013/12/06/hyundai-tops-toyota-car-reliability-carmd-vehicle-health-index/

    Last tried Hyundai a few years back, not to my taste. If the European models are as cheap to run then could be a good choice.

    G’erman manufacturers seem to be having big problems with engine reliability:

    h**p://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/news/9815860/German-cars-lose-out-in-reliability-survey.html

    Except M’ercedes which is #3 most reliable after H’onda and and T’oyota.

    Best bang for buck, which has been case for a number of years, is H’onda. Not great for long distance, but for UK driving is fine. They are pretty much indestructible, so long as you do not drive them into a wall.

    Three year warranty periods on new cars are the norm: Reliability cannot be implied from that. For example, H’onda offer three year warranty’s but outstrip all other manufacturers on reliability with 87% in the 4 to 8 year age range, and are functionally virtually indestructible in any case if they survive the first three years (93% do).

    Kia / Hyundai are competing with other A’sian manufacturers (and the market in general) on warranty terms. Whilst good, with implication that they believe their products are worthy of the warranty, it does imply that they are exploiting this marketing gimmick because they cannot compete in their price bracket with other manufacturers on features.

    To your point on snobbery: Agreed, and unfortunately Land Rover makes the case.

    Easy – Because this sort of problem justifies Nigerians seeking asylum in the UK. If you want fewer Nigerians living in the UK, and I expect you do, then you ought to support any effort by “the West” to make places like Nigeria safer for their inhabitants. Otherwise they just come over here.

    Bloke from Boko says:

    There was a TV series called ‘the Man from UNCLE’ many years ago-nobody thought UNCLE was a place. Is English your first language? Boko could also be translated as ‘non-Islamic’ education: use of the term western to conceal religious motivation is common in the smoke and mirrors game that discussions with apologists for the RoP usually become e.g. “he murdered his wife/daughter because she was becoming too westernised.” For a discussion of Islam and the Nigerian slave trade far more detailed than there is space for here google: “Geoffrey Clarfield” “Boko haram and the return of the Nigerian slave trade”

    The fact is, these Mussie terr01ists have kidnapped 300 Chr1stian girls.

    The two facts the UK media and politicians are still ignoring on purpose… Is the fact the perpetrators are Mussies, the still ignore this and call them terr01ists only, and that the girls are Chr1stian, they only call them girls.

    Simple solution – nobody throughout Europe buys a new car for 18 months or so (including company cars) – then watch the car makers blow a fuse when nothing they make is selling.
