I'm British and I despise a big section of our population....
According to Thomas Cook in the UK, some holidaymakers are just never satisfied.
Here are the top ten most bizarre and genuine customer complaints received by the firm in recent years: 1. On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all.
2. The beach was too sandy.
3. I bought a snorkel and swimming mask for my six-year-old son, but he was too upset to use them as the fish frightened him.
4. It rained on my birthday.
5. Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women.
6. I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.
7. It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this should be banned.
8. We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake.
9. None of the hotel staff was English, and the tea didn't taste the same as at home.
10. I would like to complain about the price of alcohol in the resort. It was too cheap and I woke with a hangover every day.
Why do we let them back into the country?

Perhaps these 'urbanites' voted for Blair/Broon. Kinda gives one an insight to our current financial predicament, speaking as one of Mr Broon's newly amassing herd of the unwanted. Further, why are they all in trafalgar square today complaining about things they wanted in the first place. Make you think about how fecked we are, perhaps it's time for a change....
Now where did I put that candidacy application for the Monster Raving Loony Party - The only political party I am willing to trust from now on!!
I have to admit that I voted for Blair/Brown. Won't next time though. And certainly NOT for that tosser Cameron either! Don't leave a lot of choice does it? Lib-Dem anyone? Holland always seems to have a good Government. Mainly due to Proportional Representation I think?
Imagine that if, say, 10- 20% of UK subjects were to threaten to declare bankruptcy at the same time? There are probably many who will in the coming months, there are probably just as many who are trying to keep the wolf from the door, that remain vulnerable and may contemplate such an action in the future. The banks are only helping themselves. The politicians are only helping themselves. Maybe it is time for the beleagured UK subjects to finally help themselves. That is the ones who dont complain that there is no effing Watney's Red barrel on sale in Dubai. The rest can all go and ****! themselves. Their ignorance, lack of foresight, greed and the ubiquitous 'I'm alright jack' mentality is what got us here. Just in case you think I am a commie/socialist, for your general information, I am not a commie, nearest I got to socialism was a demo in Glasgow when I was a teen, where Michael Foot spoke at Queens Park . It was winter and it was p*****g down and cold. Politics did not really appeal to me much after that. In fact the significant other grew up in Poland during the Solidarity struggle with communism. From what she tells me of that time, it seems that parties in power attract the same kind of feckwits whatever their ideology. Now awaiting the men in black hats to ccome and take me away and lock me up for something or other, given the current paranoia regarding the 'bad' foreign types who do not share our values of 'freedom' it may seem to them that ol' Koch here is the jolly rotten seditious type that cannot be allowed to propogate ideas of true freedom to the masses via forums such as these. It's been nice....I wonder who is at the door?...............................

The impact of declaring or not declaring bankruptcy has sometimes unexpected impacts on an economy.
I have studied this at some length, both academically and in the real world.
I posted an extended comment on the impact of US bankruptcy law and the numbers of non-business bankruptcies on the US economy, laying out some of the issues, offering both primary source statistics and sources of analysis.
I am just stirring it a wee bit, it was not meant to be a serious proposal. However, as you point out the consequences would tend towards a chaotic tipping point and subsequent chains of action and reaction.
I would never knowingly flame anyone especially a young lady with an interest in aviation.
The truly frightening aspect to seeing a list like that is that such people have a vote that counts equally as much as yours.
I suppose for Englishmen, you have the out that you can add "...that's if they can be bothered to vote". In Ozmate, it's compulsory for such people to vote, so you can guess which Party they will always vote for - the one which 'gives' them the most handouts. And kidding the pollies don't play on that!

Or live in the secure comfort of regional carrier domiciles deep in the American South where the flat you share with a kleptomaniac is just across the road from a mini mall housing a liquor store, a gun shop, a church and a motel that rents out by the hour.
