Dear Mr. Cameron, Please find below our suggestion for fixing the UK's economy.
Instead of giving billions of pounds to banks that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.
You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:
There are about 10 million people over 50 in the work force.
Pay them £1 million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:
1) They MUST retire.
Ten million job openings - unemployment fixed
2) They MUST buy a new British car.
Ten million cars ordered - Car Industry fixed
3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage -
Housing Crisis fixed
4) They MUST send their kids to school/college/university -
Crime rate fixed
5) They MUST buy £100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week .....
And there's your money back in duty/tax etc
It can't get any easier than that!
P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances
If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know.
Let's put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home.
This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.
They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.
They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.
Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.
A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.
They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.
They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counselling, pool and education.
Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request.
Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.
Each senior could have a PC a TV radio and daily phone calls.
There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.
The criminals would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised. Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week. Live in a tiny room and pay £600.00 per week and have no hope of ever getting out.
We work with hundreds of restaurants throughout the UK and the US and what we have witnessed is that there is a common factor which contributes to making a restaurant successful…successful restaurants understand the importance of customer engagement.
All businesses need new customers/business but the successful restaurants work extremely hard at getting customers to refer the new business and more importantly they make sure that their customers never forget them (they are always on the mind through the use of newsletters, direct mail and social media) and they reward them for their loyalty.
So what is the new trend….
At the current exponential rate of growth of smartphones, it is estimated that by 2015 over 80% of the people in the UK will have a smartphone. By the end of 2010 it was sitting at 33.6%.
The ITU (February 2010) expects mobile Web access – via laptops and smart mobile devices – to overtake desktop Web within the next five years.
It is a fact that 99% of people leave home with their mobile phones (people are more likely to forget their house keys than their mobile phone) and given that most people have a mobile phone (it is safe to assume that over 90% of people have one) the new trend is for "mobile marketing" and the future will be about having your own brand smartphone app. There is only one problem....the future now is determined in months rather than years!
To have instant access to your customers is an extremely powerful tool as it can constantly be a reminder of your existence; you can inform them of current and upcoming events, reward them instantly for their loyalty or fill available tables with a late availability/last-minute offer.
So the only reason you would not start thinking of your own branded app would be the cost of getting one developed and then hosting it. That is why we have introduced an affordable way to have an app within weeks. With our Share Package you could have a cutting edge app for as little as £49 per month and a one off setup fee of £150.
Email us and we will send you a free mock-up of what your app could look like. Alternatively fill in the form below and we will contact you within 24 hrs. Don’t hesitate as smartphone technology is here to stay so get ahead of the game.
