    Con artists - "Approved Garages"

    Con artists - "Approved Garages" 22nd Jul 18 at 9:02 PM
    I recently had the misfortune to use the "Farmers Autocare" garage in Alloa. When I tried to leave a negative review on "Approved Garages", it was rejected. Why? They only allow positive reviews, and it seems the garage is a "paid member" of the website. When I accused them of bribery they got shirty with me. When I informed them of the mostly bad reviews on Google about Farmers Autocare, they ignored me, and when I told them they refused to fit my own parts, they gave me some rubbish about an EU ruling about using approved parts (which are 4 times the price by the way). Seems like "approved garages" is an excuse to overcharge customers.

    No, the left wing take money from taxes and redistribute it to the people who don't do so much work. Mr Smith earns 40K and has no kids. Mr Jones earns 20K and has 3 kids. Who pays for the education of Mr Jones's kids? It's Mr Smith, despite not having any of his own.

When Mr Smith falls ill, needs legal advice or even his car fixed, he expects other people's children to be educated enough to provide the assistance he needs. Mr Smith, like everyone else, benefits greatly by paying the taxes that provide this education. Are you advocating a society where only the wealthy are afforded a decent education?

    I also doubt you have a degree. To achieve one you have to possess some ability to critically reflect and analyse, abilities you are quite clearly lacking.

    I have a Uni degree. But a lot of kids I went to school with left at 16 and are now binmen, Asda checkout assistants, etc. What's the point in taking more money from taxpayers to force these kids to get educated beyond their capabilities?

    I brew my own so the government can't steal 90% of the cost in taxes after having no input whatsoever into making it.
    And what about the cake in the coffee shop that we were talking about? You've just ignored a massive markup on a price you seem happy to pay.
