Pentagon wants soldiers that don't have to eat

18-02-2004 23:29

Soldiers' moms will no doubt be horrified. But the Pentagon is looking into ways for GIs to fight for up to five days -- without eating a single meal.

The provisions of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and Money Laundering Regulations 2003 come into force on 1 March 2004. This will force accountants, banks, and tax advisers to inform on their clients and it could mean that a small mistake on your tax or VAT return will lead to imprisonment.

Housing associations, or Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) as they are now known, are becoming a powerful oppressive force within our communities.
