There's a new series of Enid Blyton's Famous Five out now - one is Five Go To Brexit Island. Lovely idea for someone's Christmas pressie?

Far better japes to be had than on Kirrin Island, I'll wager grin

dramatic vote of confidence in Brexit

The firm is to establish a new holding company in this country where it will pay tax on most of its income outside of the US. The Treasury could rake in hundreds of millions of pounds a year as a result.

It represents a significant turnaround, as McDonald's warned in the run-up to the historic EU referendum that Brexit would be damaging and drive up unemployment.

Woooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooo

Will Self is such a smug twat.
He makes me itch.

InformalRoman Thu 08-Dec-16 23:47:29

Does Will Self make all of you itch, or just your teeth?

I think that might be an important MN distinction ...

MangoMoon Fri 09-Dec-16 00:05:06

All of me.

I had to go and take an anti-histamine.

MangoMoon Fri 09-Dec-16 00:05:32

He brings me out in hives.

Nigel Farage is such a smarmy/slimy excuse for a man - give me Will Self any day and surprisingly I really liked Dr Sarah Wollaston. Felt the audience was a lot more balanced this week.

MangoMoon Fri 09-Dec-16 00:19:13

Agree she's very good.
Will have to agree to disagree on the Farage/Self option though!

Social care is, I think, one of the key issues that needs to be addressed. I can't see any other way but to raise taxes to fund it. If this means I'm a leftie-liberal-elitist then I will be proud to be called that. I would happily pay more tax to fund social care and the NHS.

surferjet Fri 09-Dec-16 07:16:43

Doesn't he just make you sick.
Everything about him creeps me out.

TheHoneyBadger Fri 09-Dec-16 07:27:32

just marking my place. mango i think my codeword will be tequila -] that too has connotations of impending doom for me grin

MangoMoon Fri 09-Dec-16 07:30:05

He's horrid.

When Nige mentioned that McDonalds had announced they were moving their non US base to UK, he smugly (& in keeping with the white, lefty stereotype) waved his hands dismissively (paraphrased):
'great jobs, great jobs - ooh, work in McDonald's'

Because McDonald's is a shit job & it's a thing of great amusement to work there.
Typical smug, self-satisfied, snotty, 'we're better than you, but we talk a lot about how much we care', irritating, smarmy twat.

I hate him.

And he even missed the point about how it's good news that a major tax contributor looks like it may be moving its office to the uk, in his haste to be dismissive about low skilled jobs/people & a McDonald's worker = ok to laugh at stereotype.

I hate him.
