    Shocking fact of the day: Wales has more people with the surname Jones than people from non-white backgrounds.
    It's shocking that white people are still the majority?

    It's great that asexuals are finally being recognised. I must admit that this is the first article I've seen even recognising asexuals.

    Still, progress is being made!

    Finally Justice for the 96
    A massive waste of our money to actually achieve very little, and the BBC leaked the verdict yesterday anyway

    The pension fund deficit should not have been growing when at the same time dividends were being paid to shareholders.

    Too late to save BHS, but should we be putting additional protection for pension funds in place for other companies?
    PPF has a surplus of around £3.6 billion in which covers the BHS deficit. It's for situations like this that it was set up in the first place. The pensions regulator can also go after Green and demand more money back though that'll lead to what may be a long legal dispute.

    Important to note that a big cause of the accounting deficit is attributable to the policy of ultra-low interest rates by central banks around the world as they directly affect the fund's discount rate. The historical lows in bond yields means that the fund has to acquire more assets to generate the return necessary to pay it's liabilities which is why the deficits in these funds are getting larger. So long as the major central banks continue to depress yields with QE we're probably going to see more and more funds in deficit in future.

    Shocking that they are a 95%+ majority. (Not in a bad way, not in a good way, I just didn't realise Wales was that much whiter than the UK average.)

    Even more shocking that 1 in 18 Welsh people are called Jones.

    I have a girl coming round and she wants me to be dominant. Im unnaturally polite though, and to show you how much so this is a direct quote:

    "Umm, would you like me to spank you a bit? I wont do it too hard.. Unless you like that, i guess it all depends on you."

    So, im gonna rewatch secretary because James Spader is the king of domination, but like, its safe to say that im at least slightly anxious.
