This is a cost of living thread so my comments are directed at people who will struggle with the cost of living but refuse to work.

No idea what the daily mail comments are about.

The UK government are a shower of robbing tramps - jail would be too good for many of them fuc*s. But I am sure there is a thread about how they lined their own pockets and that of their cohorts over the years.

I am allowed to call out lazy bastids at the same time - and that is what they are - lazy bastids who deserve zero sympathy or assistance
It's capital versus labour. It doesn't matter how hard you work. You will get also get shafted.

Unless you are in a company that pays you well for hard work and effort. though getting paid well means I get shafted by HMRC  ;D

Ah feck it
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Lol

You're stamping the cards 50hrs a week and getting a few grand a month for it

I'd venture we're all in the same middle class boat

But don't be under any illusions - you're getting screwed

Protests tommorow in dublin id say not many will show up or it will be hijacked by far right  or far left types or people will moan saying in their posh dublin voice saying why are these people not working despite it being on a Saturday.

No doubt we are all getting screwed - but if you work you have a (slightly?) better chance of getting through this shit show.

Those that decide they want to lie on their arse - feck em

As someone said  earlier , people  not working and claiming a few quid  is  the low lying fruit compared to the billionaires /  politicians cronies ..higher up the Food chain

I donít understand the ire directed at  those claiming/not working  . And just because someone seems to be sitting on their arse, you donít really know their circumstances./health situation. 

Anyway , I really  couldnít give a shiny shite what Johnny down the road  does or doesnít do, if he works or not, claims or not.  Whatís it to me?  Itís none of My business.  Good luck to Johnny , heís only trying to get by  like the rest of us .

 If he was dishing out drugs to our kids , well thatís a different story . Then weíd have something to complain about.  But claiming a few pennies , who gives a shite

Their is lots of obese people that work and a lot of them fund drug dealers  just because someone works does not make them an autimatic angel or good community person

Today's Tax cuts in the UK are likely the first tax cuts that will materially worsen your financial situation.

Short term they put money in your pocket & in theory more money into the economy  but in the current inflationary spiral it mightn't be a good thing. Unfunded tax cuts aren't good for market confidence & might hasten a real sterling collapse, plus its going on top of already record levels of UK Government debt, interest rate rises may also be required for longer & may be sharper.

It's a gamble, it might pay off, but I haven't seen anything in any UK tory Cabinet in the past 12 years that would inspire confidence.

There are people that really need help, the old, the disabled, the NHS etc. But there is only so much tax that you can collect, see what is going on today, and if money is going to people who do not need it then it is not going to people who do need it.

It's a gamble, it might pay off, but I haven't seen anything in any UK tory Cabinet in the past 12 years that would inspire confidence.

it might pay off, but because of Brexit and high energy costs the real markets are not buoyant right now. It isn't thought through, it is only dogma.

Your pension is in an asset bubble. Watch what happens to it when interest rates go to 6% and then 9%.
Switzerland has a referendum about the state pension scheme on Sunday. The conventional thinking says the Government is right. Increase the retirement age and VAT. But that won't fix the problem. Now is treacherous.
Sylvie Linnane said you need a few tinkers if you want to win an all Ireland. You do.

The Shinners, People against People and other lefties characterise the Irish government as Tories. However, I'd say that the Irish budget next week will not be in the same style as this one.

Not if your currency takes a nosedive against the dollarÖ the tax gains that those earning below £150k have made are effectively wiped out in the weakness of the £ having to buy fuel in USD!

Seemed tiered, £150,000 gets the best but £100,000 saves £1,500 over the year and drops as you go down
