    Ermm...don't know if i wanna help :p:
    There is a limit to how much you can 'gift' annually, so if it goes over this limit then it will be taxed. But the limit is per person (i think, haven't discussed this in a while!) so if you spread it out through enough people then you'll avoid the tax.
    Ha, I wish it was me.

    It's just I'd love to see the smug grin knocked off their faces in their brand new ford fiestas and 5* holidays 3 times this summer etc

    Not personally, no.


    The point I was making was that you criticise us for using the name of a RL party when we don't necessarily agree with everything they do/say/believe in and suggested that we could confuse voters because of this. If you are closer to that Socialist party, what about all the confused sods who vote for you because of their allegiance to the RL other socialist party (which calls itself the 'socialist party', closer to your own party's name than the 'socialist party of great britain' you associate yourself more closely with). And are you sure you aren't as different from them as we are from the RL Labour party?
    I'm not criticising the name of your party, I'm suggesting that it was wrong to criticise ours.
    There's no mainstream or large well-known party called the Socialist Party in this country. I think, along with the Centre and Libetarians (not to mention the Lib Dems), we're not associated with any RL party.

    If you don't want the downsides of an association with a RL Party, why not rename yourself 'Social Democrats' or 'Party of the Centre-Left' or 'Non-Nasty Middle Class Party'?

    Oh no, it's complicated, i'm not too knowledgeable on the matter. Nothing will come to me. It's been affecting the family business though for many years (although it shouldn't its something to do with how it was set up because it's old).

    I do not know the true facts but from what I read she didn't have the mens rea of the offence and therefore I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

    It's far from a big deal, and I pretty much agree with Cardozo.

    Firstly, apologies on not doing something about the dog tracker bill you put too me, university has just started and I just haven't got round too it, I'd advise that you send it sohanshah (deputy leader) and he will put it forward for you I would think.

    Secondly, this is a good question. I support Gordon Brown, I think he is a good politician and probably a very good leader for the Labour party, but in this instance, how good he is, is simply overwhelmed by the bad press he gets.

    The world was praising him at the start of the recession, he was leading the way. Then we see the expenses scandal and a few other big things rocking parliament and for labour to be re-elected, I think they will need a new leader.

    Simply because many of the public will blaim him... not the other members of the party or those before him. So yes he should be replaced if we wish to win, he hasn't got the personality to whip the nation back on his side and that's what labour need right now.

    Conservatives will get into power and sell everything of value and leave us in a bigger mess. But many simply turn to the main opposition, i'd rather a lib dem government than a conservative one.

    I personally don't feel that Mr Brown should be replaced as leader. I think stability is important at the moment and don't feel that a leadership change would significantly affect the results of the next general election.

    Keep in mind the distinction between the RL Labour party and the TSR Labour party.

    I tend to agree, which is sad because I feeel that Brown is one of the best people for the country to have as Prime Minister. Its a shame that the media has ruined him.
