    Two sides of the same coin.

    How is it that the government/UK debt goes up but they praise themselves for cutting the deficit? Surely if you have debt and still borrow, you are still in debt.

    Income Tax and Politics

    During the election fever to date, not one of the major parties has made any mention about raising the basic rate of income tax for the next parliament. Paying tax is never popular no matter how much you earn, or don't earn. Even less so when an election beckons......................but in one...

    Budget 2014

    One thing is confusing me, from the bbc website: How can the debt be lower if there is still a deficit?

    Reality at last, relief..and maybe greater urgency?

    At last!! After what seems like several season of not winning but clinging onto a false position (false because we had played more games) in a Play-Off position - the league finally has a more realistic look and feel about it. Is almost a relief. Plymouth Argyle currently deserve to be in 7th...

    Energy Suppliers

    My latest bill shows after a year I have 14.62 outstanding which to me means my monthly payments have been fairly accurate. Unless their prices are due to increase by about 9%, it would be common sense to me, that they increase my payment by 2 or 3 quid a month and it will be pretty bang on...
  10. So we lost our AAA rating then George

    Moody's are the first ratings agency to cut our AAA rating. George Orborne's two main arguments against the painfulobvious abject failure of this government's economic policy were (i) we've still got a AAA rating (ii) we're reducing the deficit. Considering that George has not met either of...
  11. So the deficit increased then George.

    Yesterday's disappointing 4G sale means that George Osbourne's sneaky tactic of including the projected sales forecast to hide the abject failure of his economic policy has failed. Should he be sacked?

    Triple dip recession on its way?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21193525 Looks like the much vaunted triple dip recession is on course.Well done Boy George. "They should not have cut the deficit so quickly and before the recovery was sustained". Over to you.

    We need to buck the trend...

    So far, all the teams with an advantage going into the 2nd Leg (WHU 2-0, Blackpool 1-0, Sheff Utd 0-0 but with home advantage and Hudds Town 2-0) have all completed the job. So, now we need to prove ourselves, overcome the 0-1 deficit and show what Southend United is made of!!
