Dare I ask – who is defending the men? We of course see offensive language against men as well as against women. But I cannot recall such a media outrage when a woman insults a man. It would be wrong to expect men to bear and grin it, indeed sexist to expect them to. Women have quite rightly addressed misogyny/what they find offensive language/behaviour to them, but we’ve heard less about what is offensive to men. We’ve heard the word misogyny frequently recently, but seldom hear the word misandry. Indeed, why the focus only on sexual/gender offence. There is a long list of offending words/behaviour that is not sexual/gender related, but arguably equally offensive.
Offending by association: If we say, “He drives his car like an idiot” that may be offensive to people of low IQ who, despite their low IQ, would have the conscience not to drive like that. If we said, “He drove his car like a maniac” that could offend people who have mental illness. I.e. We can all be offended for a variety...
Tories have created a society where hard working people live in fear, insecurity and stress. Where every day we worry about inadvertently breaking a rule and being fined by one of their money making schemes. A society in which hard working people have no quality of life and live like modern day slaves - receiving at best only a roof over their heads and food.
When we drive in an area that we are not familiar with: turning a corner, inadvertently ending up in the wrong lane & accidentally driving in a Bus lane, to avoid cutting up the driver in the adjacent lane. Driving a few miles over the limit in an area where it was not clear what the speed limit was. Falling asleep in the car in motorway services & fined for resting, or risk driving on the motorway when we are over-tired.
A fine for being late submitting one of the many forms they demand we complete. Surrounded by their procedures & rules for them to make money out of us. P...
It really is not a level playing field. All types of Small Businesses find it impossible to compete with the Big Guys. This is not because Smaller Businesses provide a poorer service but because of all the barriers that Small Businesses face and Large Companies (Corporates) do not.
On the face of it one might think that a Business becomes Large because it provides a better service. However, it's not as straight forward as that. Indeed, it is more about money being poured in to corner the market. Effectively systems were created that prevented Small Businesses from expanding or even surviving and enabled wealthy investors to corner the market and cut Small Businesses out.
Independent Valuation Surveyors - Conflict of Interests and Maximising Profits:
In the old days a Mortgage Institute would instruct an Independent Surveyor to provide a Valuation Report and the Buyer may ask for a Structural Survey. However, Banks and Building Societies came up with...
For the price of a Garage in the UK, you can buy a Detached Rural Property,with half an acre of Garden, that is within a short drive to the beautiful Black Sea Coast.
For example,we have inexpensive properties from approximately £5,000 to £10,000. These properties have rural outlooks,with amenities in nearby Towns. In this price range the properties often require modernisation and repair. Nevertheless, given the cost of a Family Holiday,buying one of these properties makes economic sense.
