Comment on Right to Buy: one of the worst policies of the election so far by Critic Al Rick

I realise the availability of cheap credit (and other artificial props) has a significant bearing on the housing bubble BUT so to does the supply - demand imbalance.


Tackling the major cause of the rapidly rising Population of the UK should, all else remaining equal, improve upon the current supply - demand imbalance; and that can't be tackled without first leaving the straight-jacket of the EU.


The present uncontrolled rate of population growth is the cause of many stretched infra-structure problems; nevermind the problems, present and potential, of multiculturalism.


One of the worst policies of the election so far may well be the 'Right to Buy.


But the best policy is to have a fair and unbiased Referendum ASAP on our continued membership of the EU. Only UKIP can deliver that...

Comment on Election 2015: Why David Cameron will remain as prime minister by Critic Al Rick

Comment on The City needs to regain its political voice – or we’ll all be worse off by Alan Crowther

There are about 100k non-doms. Some do employ people, some don't, but they all do at a minimum eat, drink, travel and live somewhere which equals spend. Some are here by incidence and some by planning. Just looking at £90k tax per head on half my estimated non-doms, ignore the spend/services bought, and any employees - that's £4.5bn in tax you do not have if they bugger off. So said non-doms move off to one of those other "terrible" places around the world, taking their spend and employees with them.....which comes to more than £4.5bn I believe. Probably not a surprise, but there are several other European countries that offer tax deals and breaks. Trashing a pole position product is not something I would recommend.

Comment on Majestic Wines just paid £70m for a business with almost no assets. Here’s why by Peter Mcgettigan

I am an Angel customer of Naked Wines, have been for 6 years
or so. What drew me and many others to Rowan’s formula was the fun of being
able to try new wines from new producers that were simply too small to make it with
the big boys, and the knowledge that in doing so we were supporting small
artisan businesses (the producers and also Naked Wines themselves). Some of the
wines are splendid, some are not, but I am prepared to live with that to
encourage and promote enterprise, fair-play to producers, and ensure there
remains some competition against the global purchasing power and bullying of
the supermarkets. I imagine most Naked Wines customers also have milk delivered
J. So I wonder how
things will work out now that a larger organisation with its own recent reputation
for aggression towards suppliers has taken over. Majestic aren’t Tesco for
sure, but they are a big player in the industry. I suspect many of us will be watching
closely in the coming months and wondering if our monthly interest free loan to
Naked Wine’s working capital fund is still delivering the upstream benefits, or
if we’re just pre-paying for a supermarket account.
