UK: Challenges Facing the NHS in the Post-Brexit World


#21

Our ex-pm, which was convicted for corruption requested a political asylum in Hungary. Orban is his best buddy.


#22

D-amn it boy…you and I have the exact same political views. How did that happen?


#23

Common sense?


#24

Yeah, that and you are smart. Good. But don’t end up like me, find a girl, get married and build a traditional family in a world that has gone mad.


#25

I get lower grades, and bad work performance when I am dating a girl. It’s demanding, especially, if you stumble upon a psycho girl.

Don’t tell anyone: I was using tinder, and that app is full of crazy girls.

Yes, that is what a lot of people think here. In fact, there was a bit of a scandal during the last election. A lot of postal votes were discovered where hundreds of immigrants (who have been here 5+ years and are allowed to vote) were found as all coming from people apparently living at the same addresses. It was something stupid like 12 people to an apartment.

In real-life, none of these appeasements were actually lived in and most were unfinished and therefore have never been lived in. It was all quickly bushed under the carpet and the only journalist pursuing this and lots of other hot stories was was later… Let’s say retired early.

Of course, the voting thing is common sense. I was actually homeless once and I have a lot of empathy for homeless people because of this. On the streets, you can’t get anything without an address, not even basic monetary benefits. Most homeless shelters also state that you can not use them as an address. This means people can’t better their lives until some kind of miracle happens.

In the case of immigrants, all are offered emergency accommodation when they arrive which they get to keep until permanent social housing or social paid for housing with private landlords can be found. Each also gets an allowance, even if they do not immediately qualify for benefits. It is, therefore, obvious that these people will eventually vote for whoever offers them them the best ‘Welcome to the UK’ goody bag.

This is why if I ever go back, I’m ditching my passport and going to pretend I’m from somewhere there is a war on.

Life here is crazy expensive - tourists have complained that we have prices that rival luxury vacations in Dubai but without all the comfort and luxury lifestyle from there. This place is like a constantly conflicting Twilight Zone :smiley:

Ugh, I’m sorry but he always sides with whatever party wins the elections in my country. One mandate he’s all friends with X and enemy of Y, and the next mandate he’s all of a sudden friend with Y and enemy of X like nothing ever happened, and it’s been like this since forever, a constant vicious circle of false appearances :roll_eyes:

Yes, in his country - and in our country, where we have a Hungarian minority, he’s all anti-buddy with us.


I hate politics :expressionless: :weary:


#28

Yes, I know they have the Flag of Transylvania in their parliament. Plus, all of the artifacts in their national museum were actually from Romania/Serbia. I speak about Hungary.

Not all because of Brexit - that’s a convenient excuse being used by many companies. The real problem with every car maker has been the recent and sudden demonisation of diesel engines - going from being the green saviour of the motoring world to being as popular as a fart in a lift.

Never fear, it’s not all doom and gloom - JLR are building a new battery plant just a few miles from here to replace the diesel engine production plant in Wolverhampton.

As for Tata, they’ve done alright - they bought JLR from Ford for the technology they were using in their plants here in the UK, and that same technology’s being put to good use in their other international plants in Slovakia etc. so while they might not be doing so well here, worldwide they’re doing okay. Can’t say the same for the local firms here in the Midlands who supply JLR - I think Slovakia might be a bit far for them to ship to.

My other half worked at the Castle Bromwich plant for 44 years - so long as they keep paying his pension, we’ll both be happy! :sun_with_face:


#30

He gets a pension? He is/was an employee of JLR, which is now a part of Tata Motors? So Tata Motors pays him his pension?

Ridiculous. Thanks for this information, I will take up with the idiots at Tata Motors in the upcoming shareholders meeting. The morons spend billions of dollars to buy a company abroad and use Indian shareholders money to pay lifelong pensions of foreign wokers.

What a fool this Ratan Tata turned out to be.


#31

Who else would?

Like every other private company, they have an obligation to pay employee salaries and pensions.

I’m sure that’ll help. :wink:

Only for as long as they own the company. If they sell it again, as Ford did, then the company pensions will become the responsibility of the next owner, which would be taken into account when negotiating the purchase etc. as I’m sure Tata did when they purchased from Ford.


#32

Well, yes, they bought a company for billions of dollars - and they have obligation to pay their pensions. Look on the bright side of all of this, as the profit goes back to India - which then Tata can invest into further development of their Indian part of the business, which contributes to the Indian economy as a whole. :slight_smile:


#33

I’m aware of all of that. That is why I said Ratan Tata is a fool. Somebody has to tell the emperor that he is wearing no clothes. Guess it has to be me.


#34

LOL…Tata Motors down by 18% today. Bought JLR for $3 billion. Loss declared for 3rd quarter $4 billion. That is why I hate these MBA types and know for a fact I am much smarter than them.
