Willie Wonga and the Whopping Interest Rates.... Can't Post or Reply Privately

Following their low key hiatus everyone's favourite pay-day loan company, Wonga,
are back with a vengeance...their latest advert did amuse me....APR interest rate
is £1,509%.
Clicked on their site by accident via ebay page and just did a small test. Ii I wanted
to borrow £400 for a month, I'd have to pay coppers short of a oner in interest...WTF?

Is that not criminal?

What's the difference between that and going to see Dodgy Dave from Dagenham's industrial
representatives, which, thinking about it, would probably literally cost you an arm and a leg,
should one default by five minutes. He still buys his mum flowers though...

I think the difference it that Dodgy Dave has not made any donations to the Conservative Party.

As someone on the Now Show said about the possibility of Greece borrowing from Russia - it would be like borrowing from Wonga with nuclear weapons.

The communist missed out on taking Greece under there wing during the civil war. Putin might offer a blank cheque to make the Greeks jump the EU/NATO ship. I wonder how far the Generals will let this play out for?

They did the same in the WW1 I seem to remember. Promised the allies this
that and the other, then bottled it leaving 1,000s of troops high and dry on the coast.

Leaving the euro is one thing leaving the EU/NATO is another and will never happen simply because the people would not let it happen.

The Allies started playing games & it was those shysters 'The British' that advised the Greeks too grab more land in Anatolia & when the wicket started turning. We just sailed our fleet away from the coast & let Smyrna burn. We seemed to be good at making promises to a lot of people and not delivering in those days.

We'll see what happens if they're forced to leave the Euro. The EU bureaucrats have already brought down two Greek governments. Heaven forbid that the Greeks could actually pay off there debts thoughCrazy

We promised the Italians Trieste if they joined
the allies - not sure if they ever did get it (Hoddy,
can you Google for me please?).

T E Lawrence's little helpers had been promised more
land for giving the Ottoman Empire the big heave ho
but got naff all in return.

It's all those pesky Prussians' fault. I wonder if Angela Merkel's moustache

Well they couldn't upset a Christian country could they & Palestine had a massiveTongue 20,000 Jews already living there. So a few million more wouldn't upset the locals would it & the Bible said something about returning the Jews to there homeland. So the word of God trumps everything else, doesn't itCrazy

That was a subtle plan though.

0-0's are standing at 18.
Benelux = Bel = 0-0-0-(0-0-0)-(0-0-0-0-0). Lux = 0-0. Neth-= 0-0-0-(0 - 0).
