little tyke - not sure why you've targetted me with your question? They started off with organophosphates in that programme I mentioned watching earlier on in this thread. These were applied down the spinal cord which is where the link to BSE seemed to come in. From what I can recall of the programme, the farmer-researcher had moved away from that idea in isolation. I can't remember why now. I don't know much about organophosphates except that they seem to have some very nasty side effects and I know a sheep farmer who has been very unwell who blames their use in sheep dips for his problems. I believe there has been some opposition from the big guys who make these products to any real discussion of the issues that might show OPs in a bad light.

Dave....there are many reasons why matters do not get discussed openly.I presume your Phd was in the physical sciences.Many of my similarly qualified colleagues appear equally bemused.But a study of British political and economic history would show you that being economical with the truth,or indeed covering it up,are prerequisites for successful governance.When you have nearly total control of the media,as Blair has,then the answer to your question is clear.

I thought there might be some comment on BSE here. But few and far between this thread is political. js.

I mentioned earlier, but Blair's daddy was a conservative Peer; Blair himself went to fettes (very up market) and of course oxbridge. A Labour man of the people? Hardly. There are few things more dangerous in this life than a rich "socialist" do-gooder who thinks he knows what's best for the prols. IMHO.

prs, Heh! well now you know what it felt like for labourites when the tories were in power. However I still think blair is more of a conservative than major ever was. Can't think of one thing they've actually done that i expected. I believe that major actually signalled the end of the lords, and he almost did for the royal family, i was expecting blair to carry on the trend, unfortunately he turned into a royalist at the last minute.... and put his own lords in place.

lt, A very salient and rational point. History is not on Britain's side, no matter who is in power.

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.

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.
