Perhaps the Senior Lecturer would care to comment?

Comment:
O/T but amusing to see the Fair Tax Mark’s posterchild SSE succeed in litigation against HMRC for £200m of tax allowances.

It shows how worthless the FTM is if a company with high value litigation and more than a decade of open tax audits can get one. I wonder if the FTM even knew about this or if they just pocketed the fee.

  1. “I’ve been interviewed by Neil (sic)

    He is tough

    He can also be thrown off guard if you have done your preparation”

    Anyone remember Neill producing the Inland Revenue’s published document on the tax gap when Potato claimed that he had invented the concept? It certainly made me laugh

  2. I think if you can bear to look a little harder you’ll find a few others ‘punking the bloated Tuber amongst the assorted arsekissers and mentalists.

    In addition to the fine Mr Matlock, I’ve recently seen Steve Jones, John Ritchie, Steve Diggle and Chris Remmington appear on various threads. And of course. assorted members of arguably Britain’s finest group, the Damned, pop their heads up occasionally to express their views on the state of the political economy.

  3. I did not see any punk legends? Probably I was hopefully looking for more Nazis, most of whom were banned some time ago

    “I’ve been interviewed by Neil (sic)

    Andrew Neil – I wonder if Ritchie hid behind sofa last night while Corbyn had another Car Crash

    Andrew Neil Interviews Jeremy Corbyn Election 2019 Special

    No Contrition. No Empathy. No Apology. No utterance of Ephraim Mirvis

    Corbyn did say “I’d like to meet the Chief Rabbi” – in the Alexanderplatz basement in Momentum HQ

  5. Stephen Glover: This was the moment Jeremy Corbyn’s mask was ripped away

    …Would Mr Corbyn … apologise?

    The reply to all these questions was an emphatic ‘No’.

    Confronted with egregious cases of anti-Semitism … he expressed a level of dismay however no contrition.

    When Mr Neil requested if he was ‘ashamed’ that many British Jews have been considering leaving the nation if a Labour victory, he declined the chance to say what an appalling end result that might be.

    Four instances he was provided the prospect to apologise for the damage brought about to the Jewish neighborhood, and four instances he refused. Many may have discovered it surprising that he could not express regret for all of the damage and unhappiness his Labour Party has brought about…

    Henry Deedes: Jeremy Corbyn’s TV disaster made the Hindenburg explosion look like a minor prang

    Jeremy Corbyn’s horror film of an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Neil did not begin so gently. … Straight away, questions rained in about the Chief Rabbi’s excoriation of Labour’s anti-Semitism. The half-hour head-to-head was a disaster from start to finish for Corbyn.

  6. Isn’t that “senior lecturer emeritus “?

    Would “junior reader emeritus” not perhaps be more befitting?

  7. If Guido’s leak of the YouGov MRP showing a “stonking majority” is true (please, God), then I’ll sadly miss seeing Andrew Neil tearing Boris a new one. Boris will find some excuse to cancel (no date has yet been fixed) – for him and the Tories there could only be downside.

  8. Amusing that it was the same day Corbyn and co announced there race and culture manifesto which included highlighting all the nasty things the British Empire had done and insisting we all feel ashamed of the past and keep apologising forever

  9. If Guido’s leak of the YouGov MRP showing a “stonking majority” is true (please, God), then I’ll sadly miss seeing Andrew Neil tearing Boris a new one. Boris will find some excuse to cancel (no date has yet been fixed) – for him and the Tories there could only be downside.

    It does look like a bad mistake not to get the interview in early so they’ve got more time for damage limitation and I’m not sure its a good idea to not do it. It will haunt them at every other interview and be a good deflection for Labour whenever questioned on antisemitism.

    If Guido’s leak of the YouGov MRP showing a “stonking majority” is true (please, God)

    imo BoJo “stonking majority” is bad for Brexit, great for Brino/Remain – I want BoJo to be reliant on DUP and (please, God) TBP MPs

    Yep. Lovely Jublee seeing all those “Corbyn is a racist” “Labour are racist” placards when Corbyn trying to get through heckling crowd for Labour’s “Race and Culture manifesto” launch

    BBC* played down and kept going on Letterbox, then forget and go to “NHS for Sale”

    The Andrew Neil Show ]27.11.19 – Barry Gardiner crash & burn

    Andrew Neil “It’s not selling off the NHS you’re worried about, it’s Competition”

    Andrew Neil “You’re scaremongering” “You’re misleading” – polite form of “You are a liar”

    * BBC have gone full-on Corbyn support as has C4*
    eg C4 tonight C4 News “Leaders Climate Debate” (Boris & Nigel said no, Gullible Gove turned up) from the start full on Fear-mongering; next Monday “Growing Up Poor” – JuliaM, borrow your tiny violin?

    * C4 F1 on Sat & Sun!
