    Loanshark Challenges to Report to Police

    The root of the problem is not the harassment by the loan shark. To stop the problem, allow the loansharks to surrender the name of the borrower to the police. Then criminalise the borrower. Once the borrower knows they cannot get away - from the long arms of the law and the loan sharks, they will not borrow. I believe legalised loans companies are doing that.

    1942 The Taking of Singapore

    Ultimately, for the Far East in WW2 is all about displacement of one colonial power with another. A sort of land grab by the better armed.

    1942 The Taking of Singapore

    The Brits are not wrong to deploy the two major warships as a show of strength, the Jap Navy is pretty formidable then. The Brits expected the Japs to deploy an amphibious landing but of course now we know they go through Thailand, down Malaya then to Singapore. I think they use bicycles to save on an important resource - oil. That is till they are able to capture the oil fields of Indonesia. The Brits stationed here is like on R & R, enjoying and relaxing while their counterparts are getting hammered back in Europe. I suppose a posting to Singapore is quite prestigious.

  11. So the onus is - don't bother waste time polishing car, its just an appliance. You polish your washing machine? You polish your fridge? You keep your car in good mechanical condition so it will continue to do its job. No more, no less.
