Lying ISP

I've been having broadband problems over the last few weeks. This week I had 2 days without broadband and when I mailed the ISP they replied with a nice long answer suggesting it could be anything but their system.

Suspiciously the broadband has been working perfectly since.

Suspicious! I'd much prefer if they told me the truth.

Budget Predictions

My budget predictions weren't bad. I got it wrong about VAT, but you live and learn. It is funny though that a week or 2 later they are back dating the levy just to stop people front loading bonuses etc.

Do they not think any of their ideas through?

budget predictions

so it's the night before the budget and not a creature is stirring...

Ok, so here is what i'm expecting. The income levy will be trebled and maybe quadrupled. Vat will be dropped and social welfare will be dropped an equal amount. The will add duty to cigarettes and alcohol but not too much and i expect DIRT to increase.

I also expect section 23 to be ended and a crackdown on rental properties and landlords and perhaps some property tax....

that's my guess
