Cynical +BBC News​ making hospital waiting times into a political pre election issue. Got to be so left wing haven't you to protect your privileged licence fee, at the same time 100+ employees earning more than the PM
Back on the bike today. First time for ages. Very windy
Typical #labour threatened legislation causes the exact opposite. Just like the minimum wage. Licence for big business to pay the lowest possible wages.

Hague blames Labour’s plan to freeze energy prices for high fuel costs

I don't see why companies with turnover in the UK shouldn't be made to pay tax on those sales as everyone else does. Shifting income to other countries should be made illegal.

How much tax should big firms pay? -
Apple's recent record profit has raised the question again of how much tax should the world's biggest companies pay?

Ed Milliband really is a laugh. First it was austerity not working, then it was a cost of living crisis, now it's the NHS. I wonder what it will be next

The future of the NHS at stake in 2015 election, says Ed Miliband

Typical Milliband. He thinks this will stop the rise of SNP.
