“The Bedroom tax was first introduced for private sector tenants by Labour under the Local Housing Allowance.
Although Student fees are in effect now a graduate tax with lower costs for student after they graduate and earn over £21k.
What I found despicable is that the people voted for a Labour and Conservative coalition of national unity, they got the most votes. However neither of them were prepared enough to compromise to make it work, this was short sighted and party political game playing in my view. So I for one was most gladdened to see those who would step forward to bring stable government.
Extinct? well I don't know any serious pundits who think so... I think you underestimate the power of incubancy under our archaic voting system, do check out the website political calculus and see what they suggest.”
“I personally think they should take a cut and use comparators with small charities rather than big business, then they are leading by example on Austerity. How can they justify a pay rise when the country is in deficit and not surplus!”

“The penultimate not should be omitted have reposted as I can't seem to delete, my error.”
“I have found Googleplus the most adaptable and open for multiple usage of the social networking sites, I dislike being limited which is why over time I have gravitated more towards G+, it gets my vote!”
“More words but WHY is Government resisting announcing a Child Sex Abuse Inquiry? Leon Brittan MP announced the paedophile dossier was handled appropriately... How is loosing it appropriate!!!
David Cameron says he wants answers on what happened to the dossier. I want answers on what abuse has happened and what cover up has happened and for those in positions of power and responsibility to be removed if they are perpetrators who have broken the public trust. How is the protection of future children, the intervention to stop those who abuse from freedom to continue to abuse and thirdly to focus more resources on support of those who have experienced Child Sexual Abuse going to happen without a #CSAInquiry?”
“In your example a diligent hosts might check, but such an occurrence would probably be misadventure and therefore an accident.
In the case of Mr Coulson, it was his job as Editor of a newspaper with the unique selling point of it's investigative journalism to know the law or to acquaint himself with it by checking if he was in doubt, not to do so is reckless. He was not lacking in the resources to find things out. Ignorance in this case seems more likely to have been willful blindness or contrived ignorance while he may think he has plausible deniability the jury did not.”

“Oh yes I am not disagreeing with any of that but... with obvious exceptions such as things like murder I am sure there are some crimes we could all commit without a real awareness or reason to know there were crimes.”
Unless I am very much mistaken the "naughty imps" are unlikely to apologise to you both. It is my personal opinion that you are both owed much more than such an apology. However as I can offer you an apology for what it is worth I hereby do so, "I am most sorry to you both that this occured!"
They were very wrong to break, take and also as yet not to appreciate your apology for your family not having "particularly expensive tastes" so I hereby acknowledging your apology.
I thank you for the entertainment value you have salvaged from this crisis with you're exquisitly written note, may your competence at managing communication become legendary and may I end wishing you both ever success for the future.
“Ban the Niqab so we can arrest everyone for covering up in January and December during extra cold winter weather! Police who could be investigating rape, murder and arson instead are fashion police! really?!?”
“Nick (Custer) Clegg, admired by "Mike Becket", his only admirer in this country, no one believes a word any of the 3 so called leaders of this country never mind him,lol, If i were you i would jump ship while the going is good, have a word with our future Prime minister, if he thinks your genuine you might be admitted, but try not to mention Nick Clegg to much, he gets upset about him.”
“I like the admission the party made mistakes, coupled with transparency of the investigative process and the determination to improve processes to stop this happening again. Pragmatic effective and hopefully this will over time demonstrate the ideological commitment to put people first and care about their experience of interacting with the party.”
