[Link] He looks rather unhinged.Sacking 40-50% of workers would make things FAR worse the economy would wither for a decade or longer,think of the mortgage defaults this would cause,the effect on the High Street etc.

he's actually saying that current unemployment levels should rise by 50% so from 4% to c6%, not have 50% unemployment.

However, his attitudes seem very outdated.
Surely a motivated workforce will work harder.

The old Victorian attitude of master and servant seem to remain for some who have 'made it' and become very successful.
Look at Amazon - Bezos is now one of the richest men on the planet yet his warehouse staff and delivery drivers get paid minimum wage.
Our own Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley is not much better.

It's a rubbish idea, far better to send children up chimney's and bring back the work house.

I've read this.

Childless bloke approaching his 40s as a beneficiary of loans given to him to start him up in business apparently.

That may be unfair and a poorly informed picture painted of him but I do loathe anybody who commentates on the rest of society based off of their own life experience and personalities, which it sounds as though he does from his privileged position.

Comes across as highly ignorant, delusional and unaware of self.

 


Now Zaha's got a bit of green grass ahead of him here... and finds Ambrose... not a bad effort!!!!

Everyone should get a green card to help tax evasion then, will you ever explain how that works or was it just silly idiotic comment, I think that must be the answer.

 


Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.
