the Tories are now working really hard to get it back.
rich people in "keeping the wealth to themselves" shocker
...about this. It's just what they do - gotta admire the balls of Cameron to insist 'We're all in this together.'
In fact, no - let's pee in his Koi pond.
but some of us are in it more than others.".
...it must be pretty difficult to stomach this sort of stuff, surely?
If not, then I doubt they care.
...since trying to defend that cock who was questioning that woman's account of her rape. Maybe he has seen the light...
the whole not caring thing... it's so ruddy useful in so many ways
Let's Get Down
The headline was: "Torture! Torture! Torture!"
Which I thought was clever.
Which makes sense.
ever since it became the only key difference that people would have when they were all getting 3As at A-level and a 2:1 from a Russell Group university. It's a wealthy middle class thing, not a Tory thing. And if Tories are selling them to the kids of other Tories, well, that's just standard nepotism. It's not nice, but it happens.

working for free has never been an option for me - it's the same for a lot of students.
i'm not gonna whine about it though - yeah, life's not fair, i know that. just gotta make the most of what you do have to try to get where you want. that's life.
nepotism > nepotism + £3k > nepotism + £3k facilitated by the ruling political party
it's a 'charitable donation' right?
what a scam!
25 grand for a round of golf with Andrew Strauss?? Added to that we have this:
That's it, the next time I go to Lord's I'm going in a ski mask with a nail bomb.
SAY IT AIN'T SO DARREN.
