    Unless you otherwise agree housing that costs 9+ time the average joe's income is cool.

    Talk about not getting it. Thicker than two short planks.

    You should actually be a politician.

    Either that or you have the thought process of a fly, where the only difficulty is choosing one piece of tulip over another

    Let's all run trade surpluses!

    Consuming bad. Making good.

    They are just different sides of the same coin. So the Germans should be thanking us ( and the US ) for making their dreams possible.

    In a very real way running a trade surplus exports more than physical goods. It exports unemployment too. If you make a car for me, I don't have to make one myself ( have a bit of paper in return, that'll do nicely ).

    The UK is near full-employment. Wonder who is bearing the brunt of the unemployment?

    As that was caused by the Labour government then you are 7 years too late. Or are you going to claim house prices trebling under Labour was good? There is even a video of Blair telling people in Hartlepool that they should be pleased because their houses were worth a lot more. Ignore the facts though.

    German gdp growth last year was the same as the UK. Doesn't say much considering we are leaving and then aren't.

    I actually laughed reading that.

    Zero hour contract employers who filter their taxes to a land far away stripping our vital public services of cash.
