14% clearly not suited to lie to the public as an MP :rolleyes:

70% - apparently I am the next leader of the Lib Dems :blink:
The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed. Judge yourself by the intention of your actions and by the strength you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.

The people closest to you have been trying to tell you that you have made a difference. That you did change things for the better. The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing that we can ever truly control - whether we are good or evil.


The political triumph of the American Right has been to advance relentlessly the economic interests of the country's richest people, while emphasising a swath of moral, social and foreign policy issues that motivate and certainly distract middle-class and poor voters.

35%.

London prices! :o

Surely even the people who own there know something's terribly wrong?

zugzwang (n.) a situation where every possible move or decision is a bad one, or one that will result in damage or loss.

 

It's not a recovery, it's a relapse.

I got 47% but i think I only scored that high because I got the idea early on... sorta

However my overall feeling is one of complete and utter disbelief at the insane prices.

It defies belief frankly

Got fed up with it so no score......the thing is don't matter if it is 6 million squid if you can't buy it, take it that it is not for sale.....only fools rush in.....


Think what you could do with 2million.......and what you definitely would not do with it. ;)

18%.
I was really shocked at the price of the flat in Queensway. I can remember being in an estate agent's office in Queensway in the mid 80s and he was talking to someone about a two bedroom flat in that area for about seventy thousand. The prospective buyer had thought that he might get one for about sixty K.

Take the money and run....I am sure plenty already have or are in the process of doing so. ;)

70% too.

Noticed that both Miliband and Cameron live in terraces approaching the two million mark. Do you think these guys have any desire to solve this mess? They probably look at Rightmove and think ohhh, look at the bargains out there, so cheap..
