Was watching a programme last night about Hitler's cars. Now, whilst I'm not condoning what the man did and what he's responsible for, I found it interesting that, because all the motor construction companies were struggling to make ends meet, Hitler stopped taxes on car buying and even instructed that and affordable car be made for 'all the people' (Volkswagen), and so the Beetle was born.
Ring any bells about what this country's going through at the moment? Gordon Brown's answer
to trying to get the car market going again? If you have a car over 10 years old, you can trade it in for £2000 towards a 'green' car. Now, if like me, your car is over 10 years old, there's probably a bloody good reason for it. i.e. I can't fecking afford a new car! £2000 isn't going to make the slightest bit of difference to me you numpty. What's the catch? You can't go out and buy a car that's over 10 years old, you have to prove that you've owned it for over 12 months and the scheme is only running for 12 months.
So, let's get this straight then. VAT has been reduced....temporarily; £2000 towards a new car...temporarily....what happens after these temporary measures have run out? Let's hope there's a general election before then!
Should the rich pay higher taxes? Yes
Should a musical about Jade Goody be made? No, and neither should a film.
Why has it taken research
to realise the smokers wanting to quit should be given anger management courses? I have no idea but I could have told them that for half of what they paid for the research.Why would a woman want to look like her (not very attractive) daughter?
Who knows but it really hasn't worked and you could have done with a good hairdresser as well.
