2 kit kat chunky peanutbutters is wayyyy more worth it
I took this job up and forever regretting it :(
or financially support that bunch of scurrilous, sleazy, corrupt, incompetent cunts?
i'm fairly sure most of the money i spend goes to support a bunch of scurrilous, sleazy, corrupt, incompetent cunts. but there you go...
Ironic membership for all
and vice versa, but they will never get 600,000 new members. Besides, David Blunkett is surely enough of a member any way.
When I was younger I wanted to be part of the Labour party. Now they represent little that I agree with so what's the point?
And I don't believe in anything, frankly. There was a huge surge in membership between 94 and 97 much like the that which the Tories are enjoying now.
Tell you what - I can join on your behalf?
Get on to your boss and fet something resembling a tattered rag of clause 4 and I'll think about it.
"To secure for the workers by hand or by brain the full fruits of their industry"
I know that I've cut alot of it out but that's basically what I most believe in. Blair's Britain has not helped with that and I don't know that Brown's Britain will either.
but pretty much economically illiterate and coined in a time when people still talked of the labour theory of value. you can't give people the full fruits of their industry most of them will be denied the opportunity to be industrious at all, if you understand me.
Being paid your marginal utility might be unfair but it works - and assuaging the 'injustice' is a regulatory issue.
I might have to buy an economics text book so I can understand you. I guess I'm a leftie idealist.
Did you decide on that law conversion course?
if people are given the full value of their labour, their is no scope to make a deal with an employer and everyone, or most people, would be out of work.
And yes, I'm starting at the College of Law next September. Scary stuff.
Full or part time? I remember you wondering if you felt up for the latter or not.
I get what you mean, if everyone gets the fullest of fruits then there can't really be any room for growth but the system we have now is hardly a fair one. The guys at the top get so much more than they're worth and will still be taking home huge salaries even though they fucked up massively this summer. Whilst the guys on the bottom spent their time getting far less than they deserve.
It might actually kill me.
I agree with your sentiment and I think its a regulatory issue. You deal with the unfairness through progressive taxation (i think our current tax arrangements are too hard on people on low incomes and too soft on the v. wealthy) and things like a compulsary minimum wage.
any political party for £1. there's no fixed membership. in fact you can join for free.
always been £1 a month for students .. Nothing new here, really
I'll donate a pound, then a pound through my mum, one through my dad and one through my brother. That's OK, isn't it? :)
For students or people under 21, it costs £12 to join labour for a year or £5 to join the Tories for a year.
For people over 21, it costs £25 to join the Tories for a year and £36 to join Labour.
I'm still unsure.
