Because I really DON'T care either way.

I've got my own life to live. That takes up ALL of my time.

When I'm not working to increase my wealth (in anticipation of a time that I'll be alive but not able to earn), I'm doing things that I (that/s ME, that is) want to do, not what anybody else thinks I should want to do.

That means that, when the time comes, I'll not be a burden on society - I'll not expect or anticipate someone else to give up their time & money JUST to take care of me.

It's called taking responsibility for myself. Nothing else. You should try it.

The tone of your posts reek of self-importance. I pay an above average amount of tax. I know that some of it is mismanaged by government, some of it will get pissed up the wall, but there are also people out there who really need it, who I'll never know or meet that will benefit. I'm fine with that.

I just don't get comments like yours below:

"If anybody else benefits, that a collateral, not deliberate event. I don't care either way"

Yes, I am "proper self-serving". You say that as if it is somehow a "bad" thing to be.

What is the alternative? Work my bollocks off and just hand over that generated wealth for someone to piss up the wall? Is that how you'd like your lifestyle funded? Is that your RIGHT???!!!

As for elections. Nobody's denying that a manifesto generally gets ripped up the moment a winner is declared in an election, but the electorate do remember and if a party piss people off too much, opposition parties will notice and modify their stance accordingly.

That will create a change of government, and those in power don't want that. Personal self-survival is as relevant to politicians holding a constituency seat as it is to a Hutu on the Serengeti looking for his next meal.

The bottom line is that I must do well for myself, become self supporting, BEFORE I even consider helping others. As, I feel, should every other individual on the planet.

OK, we're possibly on the same page of the hymn book here, if not singing the same verse.

When I said "Don't care", I should probably have used "Indifferent to".

It would seem totally unnatural to me to not care about or help someone in trouble (Bangkok seemed full of such people, all ex-pats, when I was living there).

The issue is when people start to see "asking for help" as a full lifestyle option and, rather than creating wealth for themselves, start using other peoples previously generated wealth just to get by.

What was a "decent circle of friends" gets so corrupted that you end up coughing up for someone or something you either don't know about or would never support had you known in the first place.

It's exactly the same as spending all your savings on getting pissed - sure you're "living life", but if you're not adding to those savings at the same rate as you're pissing it up the wall, they'll run out (or you'll die) one day.

You don’t really have a say though do you? You get to vote on the party that you want to represent you, but after that the ball is pretty much in their court as to whether or not they carry out what you would like. History proves elected parties renege on what they have promised all the time. You also get a vote on choosing which MEP represents your region. Once they are elected you can only hope that the decisions that they make on your behalf represent your wishes.

Don’t kid yourself because ultimately, aside from ticking a box here and there, you don’t really have any control over anything.

Aside from that, you sound proper self-serving and someone who I imagine has a very small circle of friends.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
I get that.

But logic says that if you dont care for someone else they wont care for you.

You need a decent circle of friends and family. Or just dont worry if no one helps you if and when you might need it.

Mike Oxsaw 3:17 Wed Sep 19
Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
Branded.

Put it this way: I do what's best for me, my family, my circle of friends and ONLY then, others I (that's me, that is) choose.

If anybody else benefits, that a collateral, not deliberate event. I don't care either way (just like those that didn't care enough to vote in the referendum).

I will stamp down hard, however, on anyone - or anything - that either stops me from doing my previously mentioned best AND/OR tries to tell me how, when and where I should spend/distribute the wealth I've created.

Both the UK Government and the EU are both of what I despise in that matter, but only with the UK government do I have a say in what their influence is and how it's conducted.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron

Do you have a pension? Are you contributing to one?

One of the things that is often not mentioned is that anyone who has a pension or is benefitting from corporations doing well in the pension is benefitting from the labour ( and of course the "goods" that the country where trade takes place can offer the corporation),

The people voting for Brexit have in many cases already benefitted from this and now wish to pull up yet another drawbridge.

Lovely people the old people.

Another snide dig at 'old people'

Do you think anyone in life votes in any other way than to protect their own vested interests, although I’m not even sure your contrived logic has any relevance except in your bitter mind?

As it happens, I DO have a pension - it covers the cost of my property on Thailand AND all the expenses involved in traveling to, from & living there. I paid in to it while I was working for the GPO/BT and have been drawing on it for over 10 years now.

What was your point, again?

But you're too stupid to realise this.

I see that because you have no other arguments you continue with the your too thick argument to overshadow the fact you're completely clueless yourself, as proven in your posts.

I actually feel sorry for you.

He also said he's willing to be a bit more flexible to get an deal agreed and has an proposal.

Good to see you have selective hearing.

Re: EU Referendum 23rd June 2016 declares Cameron
No, you should listen to what Barnier actually said.

He was talking about a series of checks at ports, markets and shipping origin. This all amounts to a sea border between UK and NI/ Eire, though theyre not calling it that. All a means of hoodwinking the DUP, ERG and dim fuckers like your good self.
