  1. Who are you most likely to vote for in the GE?

    What are you smoking? Bookies will gibe you about 50/1 on 400 Labour seats so fill your boots. It's 33/1 for 350-399 seats. It'll be a small Tory majority, again.
  2. Why Theresa May must not win.

    What the hell happened to this site? 7 yrs ago, most people were jumping up and down about how Brown and Labour had trashed the economy and country, and now you want a bunch of marxist terrorist sympathisers to win??
  3. Nationwide Apr 17 -0.4%

    BBC even mentioned it on Today who are covering the chronic underbuilding of new homes. In other news, 28% of property transactions in 2016 were by Asian investors! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-39732816
  4. Just as house prices slide again too: ONS: UK House prices fall 0.2% in Januaryhttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-32032561
  5. Apologies. There's already a thread: Auntie Advises 20 Year Olds To Flip To Get On The Ladder
  6. I remember this hapopening in 1987/8 just before MIRAS was withdrawn. and puiblicised again at the peak in 2007. Peak indicator? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32029804
  7. Political Parties 'wake Up' To Housing Crisis

    It's there word for word. Along with a lot of other similar posts too!
  8. They recently introduced a sort of internet licence in Germany, compulsory to all households. Quote: "As of 1 January 2013, the licence fee in Germany is now a blanket contribution of €17.98 per month (€215.76 per annum) for all households and is payable regardless of equipment or television/radio usage..."
  9. Nationwide Hpi Down 0.1% In Feb

    Don't you just love the usual caveat - "a sharper than expected slowdown..." Jeez.
  10. Clegg's Last Leg

    That programme doesn't often do fluff. I think it may be live too?? Although with pre-records included.
  11. You maybe haven't seen a truly small house. I reckon all those bedrooms are bigger than average for a new build. You can barely get a double bed and a chest of drawers in them round here. Having a bedroom and living room on the same floor (2nd floor) would put me off. Looks like it overlooks Wellington rugby ground though!
  12. Almost like they took advantage of everyone looking at the news from France. Cynical, me? I've got some of my fund in a 123 account there so I'll pay a bit more attention to this.
  13. Bricklayer Shortage In The Uk -

    Those jobs are all 5 days per week. Still talking £800 p.w. gross! If those builders in London are self employed (if they really exist), they can of course work what hours they want (no working time directive for SE I think) but they're not supposed to be paid by the hour. There was a lot of abuse of the National Insurance / tax rules in the building industry. Registering as SE and then turning up to work on the same site for years with the same firm. A lot of it has been stopped but I bet there's still lots of cash-in-hand bricklaying going on.
  14. Anyone On Here Used To Own This ?

    I've a car and a motobike in the way that I don't want to shift at 8:00 in the morning just to get my wheelie bin out. So it stays at the front. We've had them about a year round hear and they beat the hell out of the mess caused by foxes and cats ripping open bin liners. Still on weekly collection too.... at the moment.
  15. I was thinking more about the shyster solicitors who will tell the buyers that stamp duty is X under the old rules ('cos you've exchanged innit) , pay the government Y and pocket the difference. Most mortgage fraud required complicit solicitors and I trust them even less than EAs or used car salesmen.
