Happy days.

I've been trying to think of a light-hearted way of calling out PikeyPaul and Peenemunde on their misogyny, but I'm stumped. Perhaps it's because misogyny isn't really that funny.

Yes, lets have as much immigration as we can, I'm sure it won't overwhelm the already overwhelmed NHS, education system or housing. I'm sure those in favour will deny any negative impact and when crime continues to rise, welfare payments rise and homelessness increases we can all wonder why.
We need sensible immigration, encouraging a massive population rise is a path to disaster.


Those that deny a negative impact do it based on researched facts

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attac

an immigration policy that required migrants to have either a) a job, b) heath insurance or c ) sufficient assets so that they don't become a burden seems sensible to me.

I think anybody who voted leave because of immigration, would accept that as sensible policy (unless they're racist of course)

It was an ironic post taking your point about population needing to grow for the sector to expand!

I wouldn’t expect the two morons to understand irony but you - really?

I think I posted the formula for GBP earlier in this thread.

GDP=Consumer spending + Private Investment + Government spending + Net exports (- Net imports).

So sub-suppliers of goods and services to Tesco are included in their numbers (sales and cost of goods sold), otherwise there could be multiple levels of double counting.


Sorry - my point wasn’t clear.

You can’t take the ‘impact on GDP’ figure as a proxy for sales because a large chunk of their supply chain will be outside the UK.

A supermarket’s margin over bought in cost of the food they sell is c. 45-50% on average.

So if they buy a product for 50p and sell it for a pound, their sales figure will always be a pound, but the impact on UK GDP will vary depending on where that product was bought in the first place. Your calculation allows for that in the import and export adjustment, but we don’t know enough from the figures posted by Jango to know. We know the impact bit (according to the report, although not sure how they get that in practice to be honest) but without the adjustment you can’t work back to the sales figure.

A moron would be someone who’s says this.

Oh for God’s sake, it’s not difficult.

Everyone buys a certain amount of food.

If you currently shop in Tesco and an Aldi opens, do you:

(a) buy what you used to buy in Tesco and also buy the same again in Aldi? Your family now eats twice as much as it used to,

Or

(b) stop buying in Tesco and go to Aldi instead? Your family eats the same amount as it used to.

That’s the evidence.

And I said that there were positives and negatives re the overall economic impact.


Totally ignorant to the fact that people use Aldi because they can afford to buy 2 or 3 times more food there than at tesco and for half the price. Basically can’t afford 3 big meals a day 7 days a week at tesco. Deluded, ignorant woman.

It’s incredible isn’t it. Wouldn’t worry about it though, it’s the automatic reaction of a certain type of cowardly moron that just when it comes down to it, finds women scary. Any women that is (they have no idea who i am, have never met me etc, so it’s not personal, just a generic attack).

Theoretically true, but I bet the people who came up with Aldi's number for impact on GDP didn't do the adjustment for non-domestically sourced products sold.

In reality the net exports adjustment to GDP is simply a balancing item added in at the end.

Again, you’re completely missing the point.

People don’t buy more food, they buy it from different places.

The reason that supermarket sales overall go up is because people swap their shopping to supermarkets from small local shops. Hence why there are so few greengrocers, butchers, bakers around now. It’s cheaper and more convenient. When an Aldi opens it takes custom from Tesco, or Asda, or Sainsbury. It also takes custom from the market, or the small butchers a mile away.

People don’t buy three times more food than they were buying before overall and eat it.

You know that. You didn’t think about it when you first posted about Aldi opening, in a rush to post great jobs news (so you thought). Now you’ve realised, so you’re getting nasty.

Accuse them of what?

Making a silly point - yes, as you can tell that from the evidence presented. Accuse them of being ugly? Nope. Never done that. It would be incredibly stupid given that I haven’t met them. It’s just generic insult.

You have said in the past though that people with certain opinions are usually men with tiny willies. You haven’t met them or measured their willies so how is that different to a fat arse jibe?

100%

She’s a total hypocrite,living up her own fat rsole.

Thinking it’s ok to insult anyone she wants but runs to the mods
when she gets the same in return.

Thats why I’ve silenced her.

She very bitter since she’s well past her sell by date and knows it,this does make old
women like her very bitter.

Anyway back to the topic of my thread please if you want to start your own thread
about the virtues of Tesco and Aldi feel free.

Let’s keep this on topic.

Of course people buy more food from Aldi than they could at tesco. That’s why they go there. You obviously haven’t got a clue. You’ve obviously never been in a situation where you’ve had to budget and sacrifice things.

And my point about the jobs from Aldi’s being a good thing still stands, of course it’s good. Even if you’re theory about the same amount of food being bought regardless of the store we’re true, Aldi saves people roughly £2.2b a year on cheaper goods. That money is then spent on other things like holidays, clothes, beauty therapy etc. That then improves those industries creating jobs.

So making disparaging remarks about other people’s bodies is absolutely fine as long as you are joking?

It’s almost as if the rules change when the situation gets awkward.
