He bought a house for 700,000. Immediately had it bulldozed and a nicer one built to replace it. Just liked the plot the old one had been built on ::) ;D
I would like to experience being proper rich. Even for a month, just to see if its as enjoyable as it looks.  ;D
We'll see how rich he is when the company has it's next audit.  ;D

He has built his wealth and the company with it by being brilliant at his job. Despite being a disagreeable wee shite.   ;)
The company started in 1968 in Old street with a few employees, and the dreams ambitions and determination of one  self taught cockney geezer. It grew to a certain point and then the aforementioned finance director came on board.
His financial knowhow then helped take it to a PLC which bought out other less well run companies and has offices and facilities all over the world. They even bought out a Chinese company a couple of years ago.
I don't begrudge people like that their wealth tbh. Just wish I had their brains.  ;D


That is the very wealth and job creator businessman who Corbyn wants to dispose of in a full red socialist war on Capitalism! ::) ::) ::) >:( >:(
It's a party conference, Lizzie. Think back to all the bluster and bullshit of previous conferences, and even manifestos. They might be trying to present a united front, but the more sensible MP's have stayed away, and will make their feelings known at the right time.

My Bro and sister in law both used to have company cars... Only catch was that they were only allowed Vauxhall or Toyota diesels.

Her last one, a Mokka with every option, was due to be delivered the week that they made her redundant... She didn't get the car, but after 20 years they saw her right.

Bro's role changed, so that he was hypothetically office based and didn't meet the criteria for a company car... The sliding scale allowance that he was switched to paid for the then 2 year old 330d in two years and he gets any site visit mileage paid for at a rate which pays his monthly fuel bill...

If he gets a company car again, he is now of a level where he gets an allowed amount and free choice.

I bloody hope you are right STEMO!  In the past I have seen and heard such political nonsense, but what worries me this time around a lot of young voters are following like sheep and think they are in a Labour Revolution, as I indeed saw happen in the 1970's.  Conservatives have been weakened significantly by May and Brexit, so Corbyn does, very worryingly, stand a chance of being PM.  God help us all!!! :o :o :o

Young voters? Ha! There are far more of us than them.  ;D

Also, the 'young voters' that you see around the conference and on the news are not, in my view, representative. 'Rent a mob' springs to mind. My 19 year old son thinks Corbyn is an idiot.

All of this boils down to one question: Will there be a general election before 2021? If not, then Corbyn has at least another two conferences to go, providing he isn't kicked out on his arse before then. If so, then the tories deserve everything they get, which will probably be another five years in government. I'm not over worried about things right now. Not things at home, anyway, there are much bigger dangers in the world.

While I know some 19-21 year olds who think the sun shines out of his arse.
