50% increase! Are you having a laugh?

I've just found out that my retention fee for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society is increasing from £283 this year to £425 next year. Yes, we were warned about a 'significant increase' , but 50% is a bit more than a significant increase! Not only is the increase bad enough, but the Society is still way behind the times. Retention fees are payable in full at the start of January - there is no option to spread them over the year. Apparently this is because the bylaws say that retention fees have to be paid in full by a certain date. Well change the bloody bylaws then! Still, it should be about the only time minutes from council meetings are interesting and worth reading.

The Welsh Pharmacist has a more, erm, acerbic take on this.

Mark Cheesman has also set up a petition, demanding the Society reconsiders the increase in retention fees.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
