Scroll down for: A Home and Small Business Viewpoint by Len Tondel, from 1st September 2017

By way of explanation. The term 'home business' consists of two words. 'Business' is the second one; it's there to qualify and support the word 'home' and all that goes with it - and not vice versa. Consequently, we also list below, items which are of interest and value to the home. Whether in its context as an office or as a part of your family and lifestyle but always directed at the improved prospects and enjoyment that running a business from home, in its entirety, can bring.

For a current, multi-part overview of starting and running a business from home, go here: http://www.homebusiness.org.uk/features.htm

Usada chief Travis Tygart urges IOC to ban Russia from Winter Olympics. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/sep/23/usada-travis-tygert-ioc-russia-winter-olympics Travis Tygart, who is better known for graduating from the doped-up world of swimming to supposedly 'exposing' Lance Armstrong as a doper from just another sport of dopers, seems to have started clapping like a parcel-shelf monkey again, clearly at the behest of the American propaganda and Big Corp self-interest machine. Perhaps Mr Tygart, as chief of USADA (US Authorised Dopers' Agency) should assume his own responsibilities first and turn his attentions to near-universal and systematic doping by American athletes instead? Rather than commenting on the world scene while he and his American colleagues ignore - even facilitate - sporting events flying the flags of terrorists, war criminals, murderers and thieves . . . ?

Nowadays, it's little more than an American colony whereas Britain's fake news media/propaganda on the other hand (The Scum, The Daily Wail and The Terrorgraph) think they run the country, too.

International visits to US fall. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-41326698 That's a bit of good news for business in the civilised world.

19.09.2017: UK inflation highest in five years. http://www.wholesalenews.co.uk/news/uk-inflation-up-consumer-confidence-down.html UK inflation reached its highest level in more than five years in August 2017, according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Inflation hit 2.9% in August 2017, up from 2.6% in July 2017 and higher than the 2.8% predicted by economists. According to the ONS, the larger-than-expected rise in inflation is due to the weakening of sterling since the EU referendum, which is leading to higher import costs for retailers. Higher consumer prices, particularly for fuel, clothing and footwear, also contributed to the rise in inflation. Inflation now stands significantly higher than the Bank of England’s 2% target and is expected to reach 3% in October. (EnterpriseQuest)

15.09.2017: Dyson says leaving the EU without a trading deal would harm the Continent more than Britain. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/james-dyson-brexit-radio-4_uk_59ba386ae4b0edff97195cb7?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D1665820589_uk Mr Dyson will be moving his manufacturing back to the UK then?

Although on the face of it, Dyson does have a point. If you look at supermarket shelves in the UK for example, they are absolutely packed with European (especially French) products. Look at supermarket shelves elsewhere in Europe (especially in France) and you'll be lucky to spot a single product which has been imported from Britain. Consequently, squeezing anything which comes from the Continent could pay dividends. However, there are two reasons why this won't happen. Firstly, the average British consumer is a mongrel with absolutely no sense of patriotism or loyalty to its own manufacturers and producers. But more significantly and once again, as we have been saying for decades, Britain's politicians are even worse, mere knob polishers to Big Corp - especially American Big Corp. And what they would do if imports from the Continent were to receed, would be to replace them with even more expensive imports from the USA. Which is probably The Big Plan, anyway.

US warns citizens of 'continued threat' of terror attacks in UK and Europe. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/us-state-department-travel-advice-terror-attack-warning-isis-europe-a7927611.html The US Department of State hasn't seen fit to point out, however, that the likelihood of being murdered by a policeman in America is ten times greater than the risk of being killed by a terrorist in Europe.

However, all risks need to be addressed which is why we have been calling for years for Europe to introduce visa restrictions and a travel cap on members of the world's foremost terrorist state - Americans.

Trump agrees to sell South Korea arms worth billions of dollars as threat from North grows. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/america-agrees-sale-arms-military-billions-dollars-south-korea-seoul-donald-trump-president-moon-jae-a7925591.html 'Every imaginary nuclear cloud has a silver lining.' As the American murder industry would say; South Korea and Japan today, all of the Pacific tomorrow; so musn't kill the golden goose.

04.09.2017: Brexit: UK to be 'educated' about consequences, says Barnier. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-41140564 The French are always very keen on educating people. Not very successful at heeding their own lessons, mind you, so he's probably hoping the Brits will be better pupils than his own countrymen.

Of course, Barnier's lessons will only be delivered if the British fake news, pro-Brexit propaganda machine decides to reproduce them - which is highly unlikely as this could lead to much embarrassment and be tantamount to an admission that the UK's hate-preaching media has been publishing nothing but lies. (Which is true but that's not the point.) Consequently, I am sure M. Barnier's bureaucratic opinions will be best aired only in French state propaganda instead, which does after all, help justify his existence and help pay his salary.

Sales of inefficient vacuum cleaners banned. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-41119355 While Fake Brits like The Kippah Party and their cynical, hate-preaching, offshore propaganda has been using the subject to try and score derisory points off the EU, large numbers of gullible Brexit Knobheads may have overlooked the fact that a certain, highly successful British company has been making world-beating, low energy, high-efficiency hoovers for decades. Numatic (Henry). An industry #1 choice - despite attracting far less attention than publicity-hungry Mr Dyson and his foreign manufactured hoovers.

Tory peer says Brexit is good because young people will be able to work longer hours. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/tory-peer-brexit-young-people-lord-harris-work-longer-hours-uk-leave-eu-a7922486.html They can always work all the hours God sends by becoming self-employed or running a small business - which has nothing to do with Brexit, past or present. It's also a moot point whether Little Ingerlandt's Millennium Morons would want to work at all, much less work longer hours. Or, another reminder why Brexit Knobheads - especially Tory Brexit Knobheads - are now an international laughing stock.

Nearly half of professional athletes surveyed break rules to enhance performance. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/08/30/nearly-half-professional-athletes-surveyed-break-rules-enhance/ Now here's a long-running story which hasn't broken wind with the same degree of drama as the west's fake news propaganda lavished on Russian doping infringements in recent months. Not that this is 'headline' news, either and the content has been toned down as well without any fingers being pointed at the systematic doping by the Americans, the Jamaicans, the Nigerians, etc, etc. Can't be stressing out the 'evil' BBC, the IAAF, WADA, the IoC, the sponsors and all the rest of the sporting world's cheating, 'anti-doping' hypocrites, can we now? (And especially now that Big Pharma are supplying 'leisure' performance-enhancing drugs on an industrial scale which is where the real problem of doping abuse exists.)
