V amusing. All the classics, real vs nominal, cash injection, historical but ignoring history, fudging the time period and source of funding. Sad to see they missed out an opportunity to digress on compounding, quarterly vs annual, continuous vs discrete etc.

Interesting to see that Sarah Wolaston, rebel and chair of the HoC health and social care committee, has absolutely flanneled the feck out of May’s claims. This suggests that the rebels are (i) having none of it and (ii) are loaded for bear this week

Slowly catching up on the day. Thanks kids.

Wow. So she actually said that dividend shite on Marr, and No. 10 has Dividend Bollocks up on its site too.

Yet the (wo)man on the street will just lap it up. What will it actually take for the penny to drop?

Meanwhile, in the People’s Republic of Twat

Hislop won’t get it because he’d scare off too many politicians and journalists. It would be amazing though.

I suspect Paxman is the most likely candidate if he chooses to do it. Not sure he will though.
