why would anyone actually buy porn ?

To have a wank?

why buy it though ?

Glossy pictures? Ease of use? Ever tried to balance a laptop on your lap when having a crafty five knucke shuffle in the works bogs?! :lol:

Seriously though, I only ever purchased one when I was about 16. All of us had to do it. Nerve wracking I tells ya! God bless the internet 8)

Bought one when I was 14. Never went in that shop again.

interesting article from Alistair admitting regulation was too lax, but quite rightly he points out as I have done that there was no real pressure to go for tougher regs, no poltical nor economic pressure

the big test is to see what does come out of all this

Er, there was pressure from the FSA for tougher regs though and as the FSA was created by the Gordon for that purpose I find it strange that he chose to ignore them, don't you?

Does he? I can't see him saying that in the article.

he implies it in the article when he mentions the Tories, the only pressure appears to come from the BofE but as I said their record on regulation in the wake of BCCI is hardly one to be proud of.

No, he doesn't. All he implies with that is that the Labour party were as lax as he believes the Tories would have been. If his defence is 'we're just as bad as the other lot would have been' then he's scraping the barrel a tad.

a coupel of interestig items o the BBc

1) the german government is paying 2500 euros to scrap old cars and buy new ones, is that something we should follow

2) china are going to invest into their economy

4) Oil prices rose as petrol stocks decreased int he US, a markert analayst says higher oil prices are needed to kick start a recovery but I don;t get how as part of the reason ifor this recession is the very high oil prices

can you afford a new one ?

Ah, I was hoping just to so the scrapping bit. I think I misunderstood the initial point, thought they were just getting all the old cars off the road to encourage the market to lift a bit. This is more of a trade in offer then?

4) I think it is partly a cause of it snowy the high oil prices led to a squeeze on budgets and especially it he US where peopel stopped buying gas guzzlers and don;t the car industry account for 10% of all jobs

it had an effect here because it led to a rise in inflation and interest rates were put up on already tight budgets. Remebver this started in the US when the housing market slumped on lack of demand at the time oil hit $100

5) oops must have delete it and no idea what it was !!

Isn't it funny the last two huge financial crises have occurred under a labour government.... I'm sure there is a common denominator here..

Incompetent, well you decide.

Oh Nick, so obviously the last two recession in the early 80's and 90's don't count eh ?

please get facts right before posting on this thread which is a serious discussion
