No-one has ever seen me outside this country. I have no birth certificate, no driving licence and no passport. For my last contract I was paid with one ‘flowing hair’ silver dollar. Approximately 10 million dollars, I kept it, I didn’t need the money… If you’d like to see it, I will post a photo if I can be arsed.

700 extra flights a day, you can fuck off!

As somoene who exists under the flightpath, you can really fuck off!

They accuse me of theft in an attempt to protect their staff.
Gerard a pisshead who drinks at work in m&s at Kew, called me an asshole in front of a manager, m&s then accused me of theft of alcohol and refused to call the police.
After reviewing CCTV they awarded me a £15 voucher…
It is not just bullshit, it is M&S bullshit…

Retail tycoon Sir Philip Green is facing calls to give up his knighthood if he does not pay back dividends received from BHS when he owned the stores chain.

The calls came as the work and pensions select committee confirmed it will investigate how the BHS pension scheme, which has a deficit of £571m, will affect the state-backed Pension Protection Scheme ( PPF).

BHS called in administrators on Monday, putting almost 11,000 jobs at risk and the Pension Protection Fund is now set to take on the company’s pension scheme. There was further bad news for the retail sector on Tuesday as clothing retailer Austin Reed also collapsed into administration, putting more than 1,000 jobs at risk.

Green and Dominic Chappell, who bought BHS from the billionaire tycoon for £1 in March 2015, are facing questions about their management of the retailer.

The Guardian has calculated that Green and his family collected £586m in dividends, rental payments and interest on loans during their 15-year ownership of the retailer. Meanwhile, BHS made payments of more than £25m to Retail Acquisitions, the consortium led by Chappell, in the 13 months since it bought the company. These payments were for management fees, salaries, professional fees, and interest on loans.

John Mann, the Labour MP and member of the Treasury select committee, called on Green to repay £400m of dividends that were paid out of BHS, or give up his knighthood.

Mann said: “Sir Philip Green and his family have made millions out of BHS and its hard working staff. He took over a company with a healthy pension pot, yet when he sold BHS a black hole had appeared in its fund.

“Sir Philip Green has taken over £400m out of the company and now must be held responsible for the actions that were taken under his stewardship.

“There is a very simple and honourable solution to this crisis; repay the dividends, live up to the name he has chosen for his new yacht, ‘Lionheart’, or lose his knighthood.”

The work and pensions committee said it was too early to confirm whether Green would be called to appear in front of MPs as part of its investigation
