You are totally off topic with your obvious dislike of the UK populace.  Are there no folk in your country having financial problems because the virus....?

in this case it cant be said it was self inflicted, it was inflicted by their governments, and while you could say the voters got what that they deserved, thats not really the case, it

So, 12 million not so smart people that put themselves in too deep in loans as well as too high bills. Let´s just hope that´s not the smartest part of the country´s population. If so, there is no poss

You don't understand that every individual's life is different, you don't understand that the low paid cannot buy a house, impossible, you just look at everyone's life as if it should have been like yours, if that were the case, who would clean your streets, who would do the jobs you would never do.  ?

 

But, once again you are telling us you are better than the rest, smarter, but I can tell you, that is your opinion, from where I am standing there is a very different picture.

 

Remember when you posted that you thought your fellow farangs caught on a 14 day overstay should be deported, I am sure you do, well that really sums you up, you have no idea why a bloke may be on a 14 day overstay, in fact it was an incredibly stupid rant by yourself.

1. Already aware of that people have different possibilities. So, if everybody have different possibilities, and they can´t buy a house. No, okay! Then they will neither stand with loans and expenses on that, right? What you seem to not understand, is that I am simply stating that most people would be better of, buy not dragging themselves into more debts than they can handle. There must always be a margin and a buffer in a financial situation before any debts are taken. That means, like you post, hat everyone can be individually different with different possibilities, but must look at their economic situation in the same responsible way. Get it now? Never posted that everyone have same possibilities. Neither was I judging out of my situation. That´s your words.

 

2. That´s strange? I thought it was only mentally challenged people that had such very different pictures of reality. It looks like you proven me wrong, or not. Unfortunately I am not capable of taking a decision on that matter on distance. 🙂 

 

3. Yes, I remember that. The fact is that I do not need to know any reasons for a person that is on 14 days overstay. It´s against the law and is breaking the immigration rules. No more is needed. Maybe you can give me 3 reasons you deem acceptable for being on a 14 day overstay....... However, I guess you were mentioning things about being off-topic yesterday. What does your last paragraph have to do with this thread?

Because I question you......😊

No, just because you try to glorify the actions of a country that are doing the best to bury themselves.

You most certainly do have a reputation here, sadly....😬

That´s mostly the comment from a person that disagree. From my side it´s positive.

I know an old guy whose wife takes care of all his paperwork, they went to the Laos border and were fined 15,000bht, they were on 30 days overstay, his wife thought June was July, but of course you want the ol' fella deported..😏

 

Now I think you should perhaps stay quiet on the subject....🤭

Once again you question my country of which I am proud of, a country, and it's populace that is none of your business to chastise on a regular basis...Makes you look stupid...😬

On a lighter note,  little Bobby Thompson a North East comedian,

said on debt.......Let them worry that's owed...

The problem, lots of people have the view,I want it, and I want it now,

new iPhone coming out, lots of people ,who cannot really afford it

will get one.

With lots of Governments up to their eyes in debt,it does not give

the populist the incentive to curb their debt,then with interest rates

virtually non existent, who wants to save. 😉

So, that means he made the wrong choice. He let a person that was not up for it take care of his paperwork and visa. I assume they, or his wife, had children or other relatives in younger age or more concentrated. If you reside in a foreign country and no longer can take care of things yourself, it´s your responsibility to appoint a person you can trust. Not a person you believe you can trust. There are agents that can take on this work for older people, and you can trust that it´s is being done in due time.

Why would I stay quiet? You have the ball. Present me with some valid reasons for overstaying 14 or more days! You, can´t, right? Then we at least know who should remain quiet out of us two, and it´s not me.

Now I will not discuss this off topic area more. If you wish to continue, you are free to send me a PM for further discussion. This thread is about 12 million struggling Brits. 🙂

It´s definitely my business, due to that the actions of the people and a country´s government will affect the outcome of the economic situation. Something that I´ve already told you is a thing that is a part of my table, which makes it my business. You, however, are free to disregard my comments and move on with your life. 🙂 

 

 

By the way, you are reacting and replying so much to my original posts and you never stop. In the future I will do like above and collect them into one single reply. I hope that is not a problem for you. 😆

It has been claimed (no links) that had our pensions been managed as well as the Dutch managed theirs, the pensions would be 70% greater than they are as of today???

i think you are mixing up state and private pensions, state pension is set by the government and rises at a small rate every year, just enough to still keep pensions low enough to be the worse in Europe. they will never get up to a liveable rate.

private pensions were dependant on investments

government employee pensions are again at a set rate and are not effected by investments

This ridiculous meme about people in poverty owning the latest technology is a lie

Mobile phones and comms are so cheap, why shouldn't the poorest people have them?
