An accountant in business

I've been blogging on my website www.formationsdirect.com for some time with my non-PC view of the world of economics,business and other stuff. If you like to read the views of somebody who doesn't "toe the party line" you've come to the right place. Government cock-ups, financial turmoil , business scandals and people's behaviour - I've got something to say about it , whether you like it or not.

Some people by nature are late , late, late and it is water of a duck's back . This really bugs the type A people (like I used to be but no much any more) ) . So the question is whether hiking it up in rapid increments would simply raise wedge more tax or make them file on time ?

So we're no longer the workshop of the world in case you hadn't noticed. But like so much of life there is a cycle and perhaps we're back at the top.

Why is it that every time Ed Miliband opens his mouth about business or money we all come out in spots and yawn ?

Rhetorical question acutally ....

Some early morning algebra for Vince Cable and his cronies , themselves immigrants from Cloud Cuckoo Land .  I have never been a great fan of minimum wage legislation as it prevents many SMEs , especially micro-enterprises, from expanding .
