and the Government is paying for people to work there.
If Tesco were employing these people properly, they would be using their revenue to pay them, which is mainly going to come from taxpayers buying their groceries. And they would be getting paid more than £60 a week, so really by enslaving dole scum, they are actually saving the taxpayer money.
because we're covering part of Tesco's wage bill we're allowed to help ourselves to groceries for free
brightonb was right all along?
and what percentage of their workforce would that be, roughly?
as individuals & as a percentage of their workforce ?
It's 100% of them. Those at the bottom because they are paid so little they can claim benefits, and those at the top because this shortfall is used to offset everyone else in the company's wages.
be it Tesco bosses or unemployed horse-owners.
I mean, unless the unemployed have lobby groups and executives who share club lunches with the legislature
who lives in a HORSE (house) like this?
ha ha ha ha ha
all the rage now
it can only be a matter of time before one of those dickhead fancy burger places starts offering a 'hilarious' horse burger.
was bragging about a friend making horse chilli yesterday.
kept me guessing til the end
i don't understand how you have friends
Just as I will now assume Nadine Dorries is indicative of all Tory Party members and supporters.
They're a family on state handouts living in fucking mansions.
By my maths that SHOULD free up the money we need.
Unless you're suggesting something treasonous.
So it all works out as WORSE.
Why not just rip her children from her arms and put them in the local orphanarium?
They'll only end up having their own 11 kids and not getting a job in a few years time anyway
She wrote: My mum has nothing to be ashamed about.
The house we are mooving (sic) to in northway is smaller then the one we live in now, so its far from a mansion.
Her mother said: I will not talk about my horse or my kids any more.
bet she has journos jockeying for position outside her door
don't be a neeeighsayer
Sounds like a shit horse.
And the kid is called Angel.
almost posted it but couldn't be arsed.
i'm sure findus will take it off her hands!!!!!!!!!!! hahaahahahaha
is it class?
Because that is sad looking horse.
I'm kinda jealous.
So chin up.
They're all different. SEXYTIMESx11
Guess there's no such thing.
get it? GRAND NATIONAL!
The thrill is in the chase, but you just roll over and get angry on command. You're easier than the mother in the news story. Make me work for it a little bit at least. This thread was meant to see me through until I leave work at 18.00, but you've taken all the fun out of it.
god you're shit
I don't get it.
Nobody is actually angry except the pants-wetters at the Telegraph and, I guess, you.
So I guess jacques will be a little miffed. I'll give you that.
why did she buy such a shit horse?
liek a chase on a HORSE!
does a user have to be to get banned round here? Theo?
I like CG.
He might be a Tory but fair enough. He never insults or call names, he just debates stuff. That's a good thing. There's too much homogeneity of opinion on here already - Verging on the mob rule.
I FOR ONE WELCOME OUR NEW PRO-TORY OVERLORDS
But he kept getting himself tied in knots and failing miserably so he pretended he was just `a troll`. But he doesn't really know what that means either.
If I was charitable I'd say `he starts threads that people sometimes post in`.
He's not a troll by any means.
And he contributes on the music board - Which is always a bonus 'cos sometimes that place is drrrrrrrrrrrrry.
I mean he's our troll and we love him, but he's about the most textbook troll you could imagine.
He's not gonig on starting threads like
Nor is he spamming everyone's inbox weith password reset requests (I don't think).
He just believes something different to most people and defends it. Fair enough.
He's the most troll-y of the non-trolls I 'spose, which I guess is why he's got that badge.
He's a troll in the classic sense of deliberately winding people up just for the satisfaction of a rise, not in the looser modern sense of "being an arsehole on the internet". All of those things above are just being an arsehole on the internet.
I dunno. I did enjoy the time he posted the password to one of his accounts, but forgot to delete all of his PMs where he was sexually harassing all the girls of the site. That was good.
maybe I'm just trying to get him to up his game. It's less fun when he's this blatant about it.
or maybe i used to be a lot more rizla-skinned. Hmmmmm interesting.
is inspire other people to properly discuss the issue he cack-handedly attempts to troll people with. He never discusses anything.
This is just in a sort of rules-lawyer spirit, I guess?
I don't think he's on top form here; he's usually less lazy than just admitting he's aiming to get a rise out of people.
...given that registration is currently disabled?
Comment please CG - how many backup accounts do you currently have?
i'd be shouting from the rooftops if i wasn't feeling a little horse(horse).
(ON A HORSE)
i'm not sure that one really works.
'They'll just have to build me a bigger one'.
Almost respectable levels of entitlement.
this seems weird.
but i don't want to pay for a horse i don't get to either stroke or eat. fine, help her kids. but give me the horse
as it isn't really important
it seems weird
she gets her income, same as anyone. i don't really care what she spends it on.
her income is too high when i'm footing the bill.
I want a horse.
it only costs £175 a month, povvo.
your job must suck I guess
This lady and her horse do not.
In short, with Exxon I get a return on my investment.
Right. So you think the oil industry should be nationalised?
Then we can close it down on encironmental grounds (like we did with the mines) in favour of more sustainable energy production.
that's good news
i wouldn't have a problem if she wanted to buy hitch on DVD. still seems slightly odd though
we're in to the territory of giving people special credit cards for the dole so they can only buy food and not anything "unworthy" here. Dubious ground.
I've heard the poor can only afford value lasagne, why don't we just give them that and cut out the middle man?
what if you gave them a helicopter? but one that you had to feed!!
they're just choosing to spend £175 on the horse. Same as what 20 fags a day would cost. This is just a novel variation of the old "worthy poor" drivel.
but yeah fags are dear
try bing I guess?
No it doesn't.
wonder if google orders things differently for different people
i'm not saying she doesn't deserve help. just maybe not a horse?
there is something that feels weird about this horse business. we're having a conversation. not every disagreement is trolling you bore
as if "a bad apostrophe at the start of paragraph 5" is in good faith. You're a cut-rate CG. You're not even a cut-rate CG.
is it so hard to believe that someone might not have the exact same world view? something about this feels odd. conversation is a wonderful thing you know. you don't have to be involved here though
you're actually putting in way more effort than Ol' Tubby bothers with these days.
Like, I don't know if c_r's playing devil's advocate or whatever but still, I think it's a reasonable argument to say that someone with 11 kids and no job probably shouldn't get herself a horse. It's very boring and predictable to just label someone a troll.
all that guff about mistakes in the articles? Come the fuck on, Bridget.
like actually i don't know. i don't quite know how to word it. there just seems to be something really weird about that money being spent on a horse? can well can a horse entertain 11 children? maybe quite well.
How many dogs would be okay? Do you have a special scale that tells you when the number of pets reaches the cost of 'a horse' and is then not acceptable.
As if any good Conservative wouldn't know it was none of his damn business what pets someone has. Party of small government and all that.
i'm not sure. 12 subscriptions to world of warcraft would be about £144 a month. that would (arguably) be entertaining. maybe this works. i really can't put my finger on it. like, what if they had a more expensive car instead of a less expensive car? like they got a brand new peugeot for £200 a month instead of buying something second hand? i can't put my finger on it
So it's probably not something you should really be concerned about.
But anyway, think of the horse more like a TV licence, or a smoking habit, or trips to the cinema. Would you say this woman shouldn't be allowed to watch TV or buy cigarettes or go to the pictures, just because she's getting unemployment benefit?
may have to take back my earlier appraisal.
He's a different sort of animal.
with her "I don't get it" schtick.
have i got a problem with horses? is that it?
Maybe you're secretly a hippophobe.
anyway, maybe it's some weird status symbol view of horses or something. maybe horses are alright.
can well can a horse entertain 11 children? maybe quite well.
it's not work, it's play. hanging out with a horse, riding it. leisure activity.
this doesn't seem reliable. can you link me to something reliable?
horses for courses innit
it doesn't look like a proper horse.
It's absolutely hilarious.
How could anyone be angry at a fucking horse?
In the cunt obvs.
I may have to delete GayGuevara for being too much of a cunt.
This doesn't appear to be mentioned at any point in the article.
Her eldest daughter is 21 so it's quite possible she does. But never mind, eh?
so this is totally contradictory yeah?
Miss Frost says her daughter pays for the horse Photo: SWNS
3:50PM GMT 19 Feb 2013
Heather Frost, 36, bought a grey mare called Annie last year and pays paddock fees, food and vet’s bills every month.
If her daughter pays for the horse by giving her mum the money in advance I guess it's not contradictory.
you're supposed to send it straight to the burger factory
like on my car i have a thing where if i lose my job they will pay for it for 12 months
(unless you send it to the burger factory)
