    A microwave is actually healthy you know... Almost everything you can fry you can microwave...

    How?
    Your definition of healthy amuses me. The clue as to why is in the name.. microwave.

    Phillip Green took 400 million form the pension pot at BHS homes, causing 11, 000 job losses and 22 000 people to face huge pension cuts.

    He's now offering to pay some back on the condition that the pensions committee drops it's investigation...
    I love how powerful businessmen can hold our elected politicians to ransom and get away with it.
    He should be behind bars, instead he has a knighthood and two yachts.

    Yay neoliberalism.

    To be fair he sold the firm and did not cause its downfall per say (so you can't blame him for the job losses). I do think he's an ass and should be liable for the pensions though.

    He's tried to blackmail our parliamentary democracy by demanding certain MPs be removed from committees and that public investigations should be dropped before he complies.

    It's abhorrent that people like him are given knighthoods after causing genuine misery to so many.

    Agree 100%, it's not those on benefits who are destroying the economy now is it?

    Absolute scumbag, assaulted a reporter on his property too, I don't support capital punishment, but I'd love to put him on that list.

    He took on a business with the specific intention of paying himself and Chappell money raided from the pension fund. Disgraceful how it was legal, how it was not regulated and how little interest there is in pursuing him.

    He falsified accounts, took £400 million from the pension fund and is now trying to bribe the government not to carry out an investigation.

    As a admitted Milifan the question to ask yourself having concluded that Corbyn is your man today is.. does Corbyn really care about winning though. As S pointed out (though that's another who was spouting Corbyn crap a year ago), Corbyn is prepared to lose the next 2 elections in the hope of a single pure government.

    As somebody who believes in prosperity for the masses over ideological pornography as their main political goal, are you really prepared to back the Corbyn sacrifice for a government which may never be pure or even manage to get elected.



    Truth be told i never considered myself very traditional until these things were threatened (same in Scotland, i initially just shrugged it off as 'i'll have dual citizenship, great') and individually there may even be merits to a degree of change however the fact that Corbyn is so virolently radical paints a very dark picture, a picture of man who does not just wish change but despises what this country has become.

    I may want a degree of change myself (i've long since accepted this country has flaws) but i despair at the notion that we could allow such a man to change the very foundation of this country. The monarchy alone does represent Britain, but it is part of a larger whole.
    I voted for Andy Burnham last year. Followed by Cooper. Followed by Kendall. I tried to stay open minded about the Corbyn leadership, but he's even defied my expectations in how awful he's been.

    So the boundary proposals are set to abolish 30 Labour seats despite the fact that the Tories needed less votes for each seat at the last election.

    Did he falsify accounts? That's a criminal charge.

    I distinctly remember you and GP leading the charge on the nonsense about why he was the future.

    If less people choose to register to vote in Labour seats, that's not the Tories fault. Boundary reviews occur under all majority governments and always in their favour.

    And yet you've never mentioned the boundary changes during the Labour years?

    Let us hope that the local village hall is not the only community facility left in the village by 2020, that the pub remains open, and that the village shop has not been closed because a supermarket giant has been allowed to build outside a nearby town. Let us also hope that there are sporting facilities left so that young people can take part and not just be Man United tourists.
