        Yes, but it's made by a company which deserves to have as many swear words as possible heaped upon it, and preferably without asterisks. Since LLZ won't print the epithet I need, let's just say it rhymes with 'muckers'.

          Why? Is it just that you don't care for its products?

            It is the unethical practices of the company to which I (and many others) object; I have therefore no opinion on its products since I try to avoid buying them.

              It seems to me there is a lot of unconscious humour here, the latest one for me is...........

              I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

              It really is not complicated. The UK cannot leave the withdrawal agreement without the EUs permission. Therefore we could be stuck in it forever if we cannot agree on all matters. The EU will decide when and if to release us. If you think that acceptable Marcomia then there is, indeed, no hope and no...

              Far from it.
              Withdrawing from the EU at all is not in the best interests of the UK, but if we are going to do so (despite the fact that there are no clear benefits from leaving - at least, none that 'leave' supporters seem able to provide and justify) leaving with a withdrawal deal in place, like...

              But Argentina didn't go bankrupt in the sense that a company did.
              Argentina is still there, it recovered and has repaid most of the debt it initially defaulted on.

              Again, Zimbabwe is currently restructuring its currency and debt.

              Newspapers and other media talk about...

              Sorry, you are wrong.
              I have already stated that Argentina went bankrupt, and people could not get their cash out of the banks.

              Zimbabwe . In June 2019, the official inflation rate was 97.9%. Because the country is bankrupt.
              In June 2009, the rate of inflation

              I know that countries pay interest on their loans (I even mentioned that in my post - that the cost of borrowing varies with the situation the country finds itself in).

              But the UK can't go out of business or become bankrupt like a company (and if it did start to wobble, the impact on the...

              If you think that countries don't have to pay interest on their loans, then you are misguided.

              The U.S.A. and U.K. have massive loans, with massive interest payments, which you and i are paying for.
