We would be doing even better if we weren't giving 55 million pounds a day to the EU basket case.Jan 29th, 2015 - 09:50 am - Link - Report abuse 0
I noticed a comment by one senior German politician in which he said ”we dont want Greece to transform itself into an Economic basket case just like Argentina lead by that incompetent woman”Jan 29th, 2015 - 10:31 am - Link - Report abuse 0
The trolls can keep posting all those stupid bad Graniard stories about Britain but I would rather live here than anywhere else in the world.
I can't see a way forward for Greece in the Euro, how can they expect to get a debt write off and not end up in a situation where the rest of the PIGS quite rightly ask for the same. And what about the more prosperous hard working countries in North of the EU that financed the bail outs, are they expected to accept that this is punishment for running a country that is fiscally competent and Greece is rewarded for incompetence?Jan 29th, 2015 - 10:49 am - Link - Report abuse 0
How many of us remember all the comments by the argie trolls about 'failing Britain'?Jan 29th, 2015 - 11:30 am - Link - Report abuse 0
There's a thing. Who's failing? Why don't these people understand? Britain has seen it all before. WE know how to survive and prosper.
If you had a choice between two enterprises, that have been around for 1,000 years or 200 years respectively, which would you choose?

NCC 1701 is my favorite Enterpise, although I am found of NX-01.
But yes, Britain has seen it all and come back from the brink.
However we pay our debts and try mostly to only kill terrorists.

@5. 'Enterpise'? 'found'? Important to recognise that, despite the accents, Star Trek's 'Enterprise is best reflected in Britain's Royal Navy. It may not have any aliens but it has plenty of ethnic options.Jan 29th, 2015 - 03:19 pm - Link - Report abuse 0

Argentina is clearly doing much better than the UK!Jan 29th, 2015 - 09:46 pm - Link - Report abuse 0
UK economy expanded 2.6% in 2014
Argentine industrial activity contracts 6.1% in October compared to a year ago and 2014 INDEC GDP contracts 0.8%
INDEC: Argentina Trade surplus fell by 27% during 2013
As anyone knows, 6.1% is more than twice 2.6%, surplus is for evil capitalists, and it is much better to have a contract than to expand and get fat!
