Southern rip-off

The North (of England) has been hit hardest by public spending cuts since the coalition government launched its austerity programme, while the South has seen an increase in funds, according to an in-depth study.

Re: Southern rip-off

As a start they should move all of the Government back office jobs out of London and into the provinces.

There's an argument for high level Civil Servants working near Parliament but not the thousands of low level ones working in Euston Tower and other prime London real eatate.

You are correct if they own the buildings but if they are owned by hedge companies and leased back its unlikely they will move, its another way of fleecing the tax payer if that is the case.

I had a client under investigation by HMRC and the interviews were held in one of the many tax offices owned by Mapperley, a Bermuda based company.

I did point out the Inspector that it was a bit rich for them to claim my client didn't pay enough tax when their landlord didn't pay any at all

PS Because of all of the cuts to HMRC staff many of these buildings are or will be standing empty but as you point out the Landlord won't suffer

Was in London ,went in a nationwide bank near oxford street talking to girl bank employee ,she tells me she lives near me in Kent. I said can you not get a job in our local branch . She said yes but she likes the buzz of working in London. So I don't think she would be pleased to have her branch moved out of Oxford street oop North. LOL.

Re: Southern rip-off

Same idea when the government overruled the Lancashire County Council decision not to allow fracking in Lancashire. I can't imagine them allowing it in Surrey or Hertfordshire.

wow! you have access to a real live bank branch????? In you home town????



Lucky you!!!!

My nearest Nat West bank is now 30 miles away in either Aberystwyth or Carmarthen, a 60 mile round trip. We are now left in many small market towns with just a post office counter in the corner of a Spar or similar shop, and no privacy for customers. In this area Barclays, Lloyds and NatWest have all closed their branches.
Nat West has kindly provided a mobile banking service which turns up in a car park for an hour in a different town each day.
