Primary school dinner lady sacked after 11 years for accidentally dishing up gammon to Muslim girl

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2381769/Cambridge-dinner-lady-Alison-Waldock-sacked-accidentally-dishing-gammon-Muslim-girl.html#ixzz2ajBPeAlL

Irony bonus: the muslim asked for the meal
Double irony bonus: there was no indication the girl was muslim.

You forgot to mention the worst part, Randbot:

The little girl never actually ate any of the pork, she realized her error before the girl ate anything and switched the lunch. The parents complained afterwards and that's why she was banned.

The first lot looks like New Monkey or Hanger13 or some shit, a magnet for the untermensch amongst the lower classes in the North East of England. No idea what budzbar is.

Being over 13 and liking music like this:

A controversial scheme allowing people across the UK to take out 95% mortgages will be launched next week - three months earlier than planned.

PM David Cameron made the announcement as the Conservatives gathered in Manchester for their annual conference.

He rejected fears the Help to Buy scheme will fuel a housing bubble.

It was one of many things that helped it along, yes. Even though the bubble essentially melted down around 2008, depending where you live the repercussions are still felt today.

Also, there are still somewhat questionable loan programs available out there for US homebuyers which continue to encourage fiscal irresponsibility.

So you are unhappy that the market isn't giving mortgage loans to people with bad credit.  Thus you use the government to influence the market to give loans to people they otherwise wouldn't have.  Then you are shocked when people are unable to pay their loans off?

What the fuck?  Are you serious?  What the fucking hell did you think was going to happen?


This is like goon logic:  "The only reason the market denied loans to some people is because of RACISM!!!  The market cares more about being racist than earning a profit!"

False widow spiders force Forest of Dean school closure


Quote
"There have been no reports of anyone being bitten by the false widow spiders at the academy but if you have any concerns please seek medical advice."

Quote from: spegipedia
They are not aggressive, and most injuries to humans are due to defensive bites delivered when a spider gets unintentionally squeezed or pinched somehow. It is possible that some bites may result when a spider mistakes a finger thrust into its web for its normal prey, but ordinarily intrusion by any large creature will cause these spiders to flee.

The once mighty UK, now certified wusses.

I may not have articulated myself very well when I posted that, Sorry.

No, I'm absolutely pissed that any of those loan programs (ARM's, zero down, 125% LTV etc. )were available in the first place. Most of the people who got "hurt" in the bubble were victims of nothing but their own stupidity, aided and abetted by both the government and private industry.  Now we've got the taxpayer on the hook for bullshit FHA loans that are defaulting in large numbers too. These loans are of course made to the same bunch of deadbeats who thought they could buy 700K houses on a strawberry picker's income.

Guess what? Income is a pretty good determinant of what you can afford, and no magic lending program can ever remediate the fact you pick strawberries for a living. No, you don't deserve a 700k McMansion, get fucked. In a just world, the bank would actually consider ability to repay the loan, but government requirements and regulalion changes allowing loan originators to sell off loans after making a profit on the origination created an environment ripe for abuse and collapse.

What I essentially was trying to say is that the UK is asking for a repeat of what we got here in the US and the government has ZERO place in mortgage lending.

I was using "you" to refer to those in government who thought intervention in the housing market was a good idea.  I wasn't talking about you specifically.  :nixon:

Hopefully The UK's housing bubble will collapse at the same time as the USA's student loan bubble.

If a private bank absolutely refuses to loan a 17 year old kid $80,000 for a degree in lib arts, and the only possible way that kid can borrow the money is via government guarantee, what the fuck does that tell you?

Why is the bank refusing to make the loan in the first place?  There is a reason why.  What is that reason?   Answer:  it's a terrible investment and they have very little chance of actually getting paid back.    So.... why do we want to force them to make this loan?  If the loan is a bad investment for the bank, its also a bad investment for the student.  How the fuck are we helping the students out by letting them get those loans?


The burst of the Student Loan Bubble is going to be great fun to watch.  2016 maybe?  2018?  Gotta happen sooner or later.  It's inevitable at this point.
