Txt tax would wipe out half UK deficit, claims union baron

LUke Ireland


That's the Bob Crow that took a 10% pay rise to £94K this year. Plus numerous benefits probably including a mobile phone paid for by his union members.

Presumably he doesn't think that makes him rich?

Its also free in the UK

From the Royal Mail website. It is just not free for commercial users who use it mainly for speeding up order processing over the phone/web and for anti-fraud purposes.

I'm the one who doesn't think everything in the world should be free, being as I have a job and all that....Shall I get my coat?

UK watchdog barks at MPs' expenses

All very simple

Buy or build a block of 350 furnished flats in London. They can all live there. Takes away the 'living away allowance'

Have secretarial support available when needed. Removes the need for family members.

Increase salary marginally (say £80K) then no more non-receipt backed expenses, directorships or other jobs. Takes away any accusations of conflicts of interest.

Not rocket science is it?

Part of the IT Industry

Despite the caustic comments of others Evesham Technology (born Micros) was part of the UK IT Industry for many years. From the early days through Freeze Frames to Evesham PCs everyone at the company could be relied on to pull things through, a truly great place to work and anyone who I know who needs a reference can find me on LinkedIn. The Evesham of now may be a different place but I wish those with and without jobs the best of luck for the future.
