In some self righteous pompous way, it exudes a false sense of superiority over the other lowly colours.

Example - many big gyms chains make you sign a 12 month contract. Bannatynes takes people to court (according to what i have heard) who break their contract by cancelling a direct debit etc. Nice way to do business (multi-millionaire) Duncan!

Yes - it all comes back to greed - offering a worse service & charging you more for it offering less, but charging the same or more...

I remember when a 12" pizza was a 12" pizza. Now 12" pizza means the box (barely) measures 12"

I agree.

Socialism and Capitalism - Distribution of the cake
Communism and Fascism - Totallatarian governments

Same circle different points. Good way of referencing them.

Funny have state ownership seems to have trumped free market capitalism.

Even more surprising capitalist are endorsing it.

What is the world coming too.

China and Russia embracing capitalism.


ARRrrrrgggGGGGhhhhHHHH....
