They are spongy, and it *is* subtle. In truth we no longer have a functioning democracy. In Scotland we had the Lords protection taken away without anyone even really being aware of it - until clause 24 was imposed against the will of 80% of the people (it was stopped in England by the Lords). The Lords also stopped IR35 twice and opposed it for a third time, but ultimately had to give in. They provided a sanity check on government which is now sadly defunct, or - in Scotland - gone entirely. We have incompetent idealists who think they know best and that there really isn't any need to trouble the people with the details of their true agenda. It doesn't get any scarier than that - certainly not with the sort of majority they have (and the irrelevance of the individuals that make up that majority). This may be one of the most dangerous phases of British history - and I am not exaggerating. IMHO.

Tkon, as soon as you need to resort to name calling you've lost the argument. OK, just admit it, or get someone else to do your readin.

Is this a real political debate where people say what they really want to, or?

Well, i think everyone knows that the stakeholder is a sop that will eventually replace whats left of the state pension. But to anyone currently over 50 its not a bad way of picking up an extra 800 quid pa from the chancellor and then buying an annuity, only drawback is low annuitys. Buy one every year if you like, the 800 is more than any personal pension scheme will make for you from its own investments thats for sure.

spongy, By the sounds of it, it isn't me who had the problem reading. You ignorant @rse. The Knight of No (who always reads his small print but still has a smaller-than-he-would-like pension!)

Hmmm...ok: Dividend Tax Credit: The beauty of it - as we've seen -is that noone understands it; certainly not the voters. The horror of it is that noone understands it; certainly not the voters. In essence it's a whapping great pension tax that robs folk of tens of thousands of pounds - "Labour's Tax Bombshell" didn't even come close to anticipating this one. What makes it worse is that the final salary schemes are all closing down and being replaced by money purchases, so this will hit everyone, though - of course and as always - it's the low to middle earners (yes you guessed it; the Labour voters) that get hurt. Just to add injury to injury, they then come up with the stakeholder scheme (or should that be scam?) to give the impression they care about pensions provision. What this actually does is con your average punter into saving about £20/month for about 40 years which - as I said earlier - will just about replace his/her entitlement to state pension. Sad, isn't it. IMHO.

spongy2 My goodness, how will you divine the price of your car in 5 years' time, especially considering last year's collapse in residual values? Not even the traders know which is why Glass's Guide gets published regularly. Asking simple questions might have helped and doing a few of your own calculations as well. If you're in category 1 you should have had your case assessed already and been paid out, if not your case may be reviewed shortly and you mayy have time to recover some ground. I got persauded to opt out of SERPS when I was young into an appallingly run scheme that charged me more than it made me, I'm afraid I took it as a lesson, unlike you it would seem, who wishes to blame everyone else. So I'm not in the fog or still at school, you arrogant ignoramus. I know actuarial figures can be confusing, I've seen the tables with strange figures projecting the "Effect of Deductions to Date". And what on earth do you mean by "It has only been with the advent of Thatcherism that we have learned differently." It was during Thatcher's reign that these things occurred, it's been since her demise that we've starting putting them right. In your case, old son, greed isn't good, it's risky. Now accept your share of the responsibility with a little good grace. Anyway that nice Mr. Blair wants you to carry on working instead of retiring, so what are you worrying about? TKoN.

Tkon, I do know what my car will be worth in 5 yrs time, as do most people. Though I could probably give you a closer figure if you'd said 25 yrs. Get real. To have tested Tory government figures you would need to have been an experienced actuary, you would then have had another actuary with the opposite view. It would have cost in the region of 1k just to find out that you had been given a view that may or may not be false. So I'm afraid you're still lost in the fog pal, are you still at school?. Unfortunately I and many others in this country grew up in the most part believing that governements were honest when it came to certain basics. It has only been with the advent of Thatcherism that we have learned differently. Added to which Pearl Assurance have been around for a century or more, so you really would have expected bad news about them to have filtered thru. But they had been taken over by a bunch of Aussie cowboys who proceeded to steal all our geldt....

Anyone know what the molecular size of a prion is, relative to that of water. Generally, the larger molecules get trapped out close to the surface. I'm not sure how long it takes for rainwater to percolate through to the undeground reserviors which are tapped to produce drinking water but it can be hundreds of years. I don't know how long a prion can survive intact but I doubt that long. Why blame the Scientists for the BSE and F&M problem? Isn't that shooting the messenger? Generally it's been the Government Departments who have turned these unfortunate diseases into comprehensive disasters. Mad? We should be, its us that voted them in!

spongy2, Oh I have the foggiest, I know more about PIA, IMRO, SFA, FSA, SIB the FSAct 86 and FSMA than you'll ever dream of. I also know that a lot of people were scared out of the SERPs system but the Government didn't target occupational schemes, why should they? They weren't, in the most part, paying. Problem was a lot of people thought thet were going to have a very rich retirement and sat and believed a lot of what they were told, without a second thought. Now if I told you I could tell you what your car would be worth in five years' time, you'd laugh at me, wouldn't you? So why did you just take someone's word on how much your pension was going to be in 10, 15, 20 years' time? Regards and commiserations, The Knight of No.

? Can't see your problem tyke. Mine was 15 years or so ago, yes - system has kinda floundered a bit since then. Anyway here goes nothing: The point is that *not only* did they not consider the dioxine risk (which did find it's way on to the news) but also didn't stop to consider the - far more serious - risk of BSE on the water table. Indeed the whole disposal issue. Hope that's clearer; I guess we don't always take the time to review punctuation and grammer in BB threads, but I hope it's clear that (as far as I know)the dioxin is not a factor in BSE. The point is (again...) the leakage of the prion in to the water table - a.s d.e.t.a.i.l.e.d o.n. t.h.e. l.i.n.k. ... Now - temporarily ignoring politics: This is a serious issue. It should have been/shoud be reported. Steps should be taken to fully investigate the risk and take whatever action is deemed necessary. What they must not do is spin it away! Now...me...I'll probably just leave all you blairite's too it, but personally I'd recommend that you increase the profile and write to your MP.

PRS, In your original post your comments on the statement refered to "the dioxide risk" that seems to be the centre of Little Tykes discomfort.
