So here we are again, the Bank of England isn’t worried by the rise in house prices, the FTSE is at a 14 year high, Taylor Wimpey are about to become part of the elite FTSE 100 index and this 5 bed flat will cost you £45,000 a MONTH to rent.

No need for a rise in interest rates then?

BBC News – Vodafone: No UK tax to pay on £84bn sale.

What an absolute disgrace.

So whilst hard-working honest people pay through the nose for the mistakes of the banks and the treasury over the past few years, corporate UK walks away again, laughing in the face of HMRC!

No wonder the UK stock market is near a high.

Want to solve the financial crisis and budget deficit? Don’t look at me, look at the NON taxpayers.

Common sense, has the UK government or HMRC got any?

Payday Loans Firms Face Competition Inquiry.

Well this is a refreshing start.

But I could save everyone a lot of time and money by letting you know that if our high street banks started to support ‘individuals’ in their time of need by lending money at sensible rates, the payday industry would simply disappear.

After all it’s not rocket science, just common sense.

Eurozone unemployment hits record 12.2 percent – Yahoo! News.

Am I the only person in Europe who thinks this is wrong?

Draconian measures taken by Governments and corporations, banks etc either in the name of austerity or efficiency are causing huge unemployment, particularly amongst the youth of many ‘Euro’ nations.

It’s complete madness to have a generation growing up, who haven’t ever had a job. What will their offspring do?

Time to bring back mundane paper pushing jobs in banks and government agencies. If nothing else organise the kids to do voluntary work of some sort, helping old people, helping footballers to wash their ‘supercars’, helping government officials to organise their tax affairs or maintain their numerous properties….I don’t know…but do something!

At least the kids would feel some ‘self worth’ instead of feeling useless.

Use some of the billions being stashed away under the Basel III initiative to pay youngsters to do a job in a bank?

Time for organised efficiency!

Another lightbulb moment from the ECB, if only they could see the nonsense of Basel III as well, then everything could get back to normal.

EU to push for losses on big savers at failed banks: lawmaker | Reuters.

If you needed further evidence that Euro politicians are stark raving bonkers, this must be it.

Basically if you avoided the big financial crisis of the past few years, by saving your money away in a bank, this could be your reward!

How much longer before good bank, bad bank and the state run bank.

Common sense, find a politician with it #couldbeawhile
