    In which case the cut off for voting should be 65 (60 for women) since they are sat at home on benefits by then

    The state retirement age is going up to 68 and probably 70 very soon. So does the cut off increase as the state retirement age increases?

    A financial collapse will happen with terrifying speed. We'll fast forward through the decade of the 1970s within days rather than years, because back then there was no electronic trading just guys in top hats waving bits of paper in the air.

    Trouble is the 1970s are an abstract concept for a good chuck of the voting public.

    Yep, what is it they say? "A financial crisis happens when the last person to remember the previous one retires".

    I'm thinking, house on the market next day, cash-in and live in the sun somewhere cheap and watch the economic car crash / fallout from afar.


    Hang on a sec here. Just a month ago, the consensus among you lot, especially you DP, was that Corbyn had absolutely zero chance of winning.

    Now suddenly, you are plotting a plan B in case he come to power?

    Vote Corbyn ! Save this country !
