George Osborne avoids paying his tax, and has also run into trouble with child benefit

George Osborne has avoided paying tax  to the tune of £1.5 million.

If this information makes you feel less than happy, here is a petition:

I tweeted this, and it got 14 retweets, which is my second best, and an indication of the amount of revulsion at the naked hypocrisy of the Cleggeron Coalition, who are weighing in to the poor, and the fabric of the UK state, while feathering the nests of the rich.

Meanwhile, in another part of the jungle that it Her Majesty's Government, Osborne's brilliant plan to cut child benefit for higher rate taxpayers is in deep doo-doo because child benefit is paid to the mother, who is not necessarily the  taxpayer. "A Treasury source says the policy is “unenforceable” and likely to be ditched before its scheduled introduction in 2013"

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

There's much in the world that you can't explain.
It's revealed for you to remember
by the whispering voice of a distant train
or a midnight rain in november.

Horizon within! You can always find
the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
is Nature naught but extension.

Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
by fear and longing you roam
that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
...on your random journey back home.

La présence; un coup de vie morte? non, ce n'est qu'être. Et puis pour l'errante fenêtre: étant vue la nuit, dans tous le coins des rues de la veille la même étoile.

Fremde Gedichte

En el archipielágo del mundo
los recursos son concentrados,

algunos barcos azulos
partieron para la isla más azula.

Uno grito bajo la mesa
vuelca uno cantaro;

visitantes paran
en preguntas silenciosas –

el anacrusa de una tromba
remolinea en la biblioteca.

CHALLENGE again. I say: generally, e=mc(n-1) for the n-dimensional room. I say this is close to self-evident.You think not? Then prove the contrary!

And: reciprocity: for mutual benefit, you will do me a favor promoting your own blog on mine!

The best way to do it is lining up as a Follower, since then your icon will advertise you indefinitely, and I will follow you in return. Let's forge a mighty alliance of synergy and common interest.
