Re: Labour and (no) English devolution

I think one example of this in real life which I think is correct (although I stand to be corrected) is that tuition fees for England under the last labour government was passed with the votes of the Scottish MPs which swing the vote, while these MPs [more]

Re: For comparison

Actually I agree with you on this. Didnt somebody say buy when others are fearful? I guess I have a large contrarian streak but I think both Sainsburies and Tesco may be undervalued. Not so sure about Morrisons although that is where we buy our [more]

Re: Phoenix(PHNX) Interims

Re: BBY/CLLN: the fat lady sings!
