Income tax in the UK.

Dan Snow.
Happy Birthday, Income Tax. William Pitt introduced it today in 1799. Rate started at 1% if you earned over £60 and went up to 10% if you earned over £200.

He promised it was temporary.
Looks like politicians haven't changed much over the years. :twisted:

"Facebook can be bad for your health."

Using Facebook could make you feel physically ill and women are particularly vulnerable, according to scientists. Constantly comparing yourself to others, or social comparison, leads to sleep problems, weight change and muscle tension. Researchers from the University of Surrey studied 165 Facebook ...

Re: New Years Resolutions

All respect and encouragement to those who make New Year Resolutions. I gave up on them myself several years ago, as I lack determination and persistence, and am totally unable to resist temptation. (Or unwilling?) There are things I know I should try to do, and other things I know I should try not ...

Blind Mystic Baba Vanga's predictions for 2019.

2019 will see Europe's economy collapse, Trump struck down by a mysterious illness that causes hearing loss and Putin survive assassination, she says. Perhaps also worth adding...... ."She died in 1996 aged 85, but has still been predicting what is in store each year." Any guess which reputable jou...
