- @MervynDinnen @ladyloki Better UKIP win a small district council and mess it up before anyone elects them to anything important. 6 hours ago
- @MervynDinnen @ladyloki That's what buggered the BNP. People elected them to the council and found they were completely clueless. 6 hours ago
- @path_dependent So they replace 'non-jobs' with self-employed non-businesses, supported by in-work benefits. Genius! :-) 6 hours ago

Newsnight’s economics editor Paul Mason is presenting a programme called Credit Crash Britain on BBC2 this evening. As part of his investigation, he discovered an internal document from HBOS, written in 2004, which shows: - the bank knew there was a … Continue reading
