I'm no expert, but that was all US money and German reparations wasn't it?

Britain was too busy paying the US back for all the stuff they sent us up until they entered WW2... But like I say, I could be wrong., :?


The Marshall Plan. I'm sure Toby knows it like the back of his hand but Britain didn't pay anything towards the rebuilding of Europe but was the largest recipient of aid from the US.
I don't think Britain got any reparation payments from Germany because we weren't invaded but Germany did pay back WW1 reparations until 2010


No, because we were massively indebted to Lend-Lease as well.

The Marshall Plan was about $140 billion in today's money. Britain got about $30 billion of that.

I think the Greeks used that suggestion as well. They loaned Germany a shitload of money.

To clarify -

"The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by the Wehrmacht (German Armed Forces) during the war."











That was way too close for comfort now I think on...

That and harassing women to sleep with him which seems to have been forgotten in the porngate furore


Are you for real?
"They are whistle blowers working for the public good here."

The fucking POLICE!!!!

Are you absolutely fucking off your trolley???

Someone is paying him off to do a hatchet job . And he needs the money to subsidise his already over generous pension.

Working for the public good my arse.

Ahem!

"The British Isles" includes The Channel Islands.

Britain (as I wrote) or Great Britain just includes the mainland

No one is defending that aspect of the case. As usual the police are using this affair to gain political advantage. They did it with Mitchell, and here they are doing it again. no one has suggested any of the material found was illegal or even extreme, despite various left wing web sites claiming both. the reality is that it looks like anyone and everyone has access to everyones computer's in the HoC. Researchers, advisers , even interns. I can see a case for tightening that up, but what the police are doing is just graft.

He was still sitting in his office wanking between sending off emails and harassing subordinate female co-workers.

that may be normal in the construction industry but in the oil industry that hasn't been normal for over 10 years.

In mine it's clearly stated as gross misconduct which - 90% of the time- leads to dismissal.

Viewing porn on a work computer is exactly the same and in 100% of cases would lead to dismissal (there was a rather large scale case in Birmingham recently where some senior managers were dismissed for exactly this reason).

Of course, if Yomp wants the HoC to be a virtual wild west, that's his call.

With me both constitute "serious disciplinary offences" which could lead to gross misconduct and dismissal.

I work for a non departmental public body.

My contract states that failure to gawp at a minimum of 32 tits or 16 arses a day would lead to misconduct charges.

I work for Razzle.

I’ve emailed the Royal Mail to see if it can add BCB to the list of websites it’s employees are forbidden from viewing.
