I dunno A O could be on to something here. As far as I can see the logic is:

1 Massage is good
2 This device is called a massage table
3 Therefore this device is good and gives you all the benefits of massage.

So as I sit on my massage chair in front of my massage computer, typing on my massage keyboard, I can feel all the benefits of massage on by calves and quads. I will drive home later in my massage car to my massage home.

Why settle for a 30 minute session when you can have the benefits of massage twenty fours hours a day?

 

TUC-led 'Britain Needs a Pay rise' march

Rubbish, top 1% in the UK starts about £160k, quite likely to be a top doctor, solicitor or senior banker, these arent the sort of people with swiss trusts or bank accounts and arent the super rich.  

What has a perception of 'class' got to do with it?

Pure greed I'm afraid, if your reading this on a computer you're in the global 1% rich list. If you genuinely believe in redistribution are you happy to give up 90% of your wealth to bring the 99% below you to a more equal level, are you happy to see the price of goods made in China triple so they get a living wage to?

You are really not in danger of being in any kind of 1% yet you are quite vehement in defence of this 1%.

There has clearly been a stagnation in real wages in recent years. There has also clearly been an increase that accrues to the very top of the wealth/income %. the share of income that goes to the very top has increased. That widening gap is going to be a bigger problem.

Perception of class has got nothing to do with it. But perhaps the burden on the middle class might be reduced if the very top at the wealth/income strata paid a fair share. the people taking money off you are not the undeserving poor/immigrants, it's very tax averse wealthy.

For instance, Osborne announced how he was going to collect billions in tax from Britons who hid income in Swiss bank accounts. Well ehat happened. did he collect billions?

Her's what he let those people do. They nominate an account to declare to the UK revenue. That account might have £1 in revenue which gets taxed. All the other income stays hidden.

You can be super rich, be resident here and pay a fixed charge of tax irrespective of your income.

Perhaps you don't have enough wealth to put in a trust structure, but perhaps you should understand how many people hide their money there. that's even before you get to google and starbucks and the rest of the corporates who think they should pay no tax.

Politics of envy - really? Perhaps you should understand the length people go to pay no tax.

To be in the top 1% in terms of global assets one would need to have $798 US. That's around £500,000 in the UK.

Add up your housing equity (if any), pension fund (if any), and cash. Subtract from that all your debts, and you're done.

The problem with having masses of borrowed money floating around is that all it does is ramp up the price of goods. A bit of a slap in the face for people who have some real assets, they are forced to compete with others who have no concept of how skint they really are.

a teacher in line to retire on a final salary pension will enjoy retirement benefits that it would cost me about half a million quid to fund. Add that to whatever they have earned in salary or  made by speculating on the value of their own home , plus general social provision in this country and the small matter of living in a comparatively  safe  well defended advanced country and so on...I'm paying taxes to foot the bill for that by the way

that teacher is well and truly in the 1%. Yet s/he is waving the red flag on strike and forcing me to either use up my annual leave or pay extra child care to fund their little war 

FUCK

OFF

 

For you to say that teachers are in the top 1% shows that someone has won the communications battle on this.

There is an anxiety among people here that they are in the top 1% and that the lazy masses are agitating to take their hard earned off them.

Sorry to disappoint anyone here but you are not top 1%. And teachers are certainly not top 1%.

The top1% people are more likey to be those people who don't own the house they live. Why, is it because they rent? No, it's because a Swiss trust 'owns' the house they live in, not them.

someone has done a very good job of making the middle class think that when someone talks about the top 1% they are talking about them Well they are not. If you are PAYE you are almost certainly not 1%.

But if you are 1% you will not want to pay a penny in tax. and you will achieve that by means of paper transactions to BVI/IOM/etc and Swiss bank accounts and a lot of well known tax 'minimisation' efforts.

It is almost amusing to see a bunch of middle class aspirants defending the super rich. Almost.

Ebola

I've heard that if you lie on a massage bed, it will cure you of ebola.

I expect Peckham , Croydon and Preston to be ebola-free zones.

Party Conferences

Party political conferences are like the courtship rituals of dung beetles. Not only do they involve a lot of crap, they are much more interesting to the participants than to the average onlooker.

Thanks Seren, that sounds helpful.

I think there should be a warning against saucony shoes.

Dear A O

glad you are still posting I have a question that needs answering.

I recently purchased a pair of Saucony Vision Shoes.

I am a serious runner who typically does 40 to 50 miles and week training and I take part in regular marathon and half marathon races, for a long time now I have worn Asics Kayano shoes without a problem. I decided to try the visions having heard good things about them and having read the technical data on the shoes. The first time I wore the shoes was for a short 10k run, during the run they destroyed my feet and left them badly blistered and very painful, I put this down to breaking the shoes in and decided to give them another try. I wore them again a week or so later once the original blisters had heeled, this time I wore them in a half marathon race in Carlisle. As a result I have been left in agony with terrible blisters and deep tissue bruising which will stop me running for at least 2 weeks according to my Doctor.

Will the beds help my recovery?

Seems Ceragem have been a wee bit naughty

That relates to misleading presentations in Spanish. So long as you get a massage, rather than a masaje, you will get all those wonderful benefits which as we know are ... erm ... um

Get over it!  Just because it was "reported" in the Daily Mail, doesn't make it true.  But why let the truth get in the way of a good story?

The cowards! No wonder the English gave them such a kicking at Culloden.

 

I guess they don't teach Scottish history in England.   There were as many Scots on the Government side as there were on the Jacobite side, and Bonnie Prince Charlie was attempting to reclaim his family's "right" to the thrones of England and Scotland.

 

There was probably 56% on the Government side, and that's why the result didn't go the Jacobite way ...
