... Lowering taxes & VAT... not until July 1st

I see your country's "leadership" is about as Intelligent as here in the USA.
Almost 4 months from now, who know if there still be a world left by then.

They clearly don't expect to be around to do it.

They've seen the light (glinting off the pitchforks no doubt) and now it's per April 1st that petrol will go down 17cts per liter, diesel 11cts per liter (which of course helps nothing when looking at the past week when just 20cts were added)
VAT on energy is still going down on July 1st, from 21% to 9%.
The lowest incomes will get a form of subsidy up to 800 euros to compensate the high costs of their energy bill.

That reminds me of American supermarkets - "You are our 1 millionth customer! You receive..... a free teddy bear."

You must be watching too many reruns of I Love Lucy from the 1950's & 60's.
Now days at best, you would be lucky to receive a free candy bar. They don't do those types of promotion.

Hidden, probably. Deleted, no.
I just saw the number of posts sit at 19999 in the index last night (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/forum_index.php) and thought: why hasn't anyone snatched that one yet?

Grumble, walk into alehouse greeted, Hi Gary - we don't have any breakfast today.

Do you think they can scramble some eggs? Change hash browns to fries, know you have bacon and fruit for the lunch menu.
Glory, they have breakfast.
