  1. I see it as a small stepping stone on the route to tippy toeing away from the hard-line narrative on the Covid vaccine that is going to look very bad when the streets are full of protesting critical care nurses and firemen, the babble about Covid and the "vaccine" will be dying down in the coming months as the media try to find something else to "babble" about IMO (the reasons they want to keep spewing out all this nonsense and noise is the most interesting debate IMO) And it is Jaggy Nettle, not Jagged Nettle. Of course if Covid persists or mutates in a dangerous way then it is Game Back On as far as the media will be concerned.
  2. I read your post, and you misunderstood the fact that "buying" a property involves more than just taking possession of the physical structure, waffle about WW2 all you want but it is just that simple. The last proper property crash was in the late 80`s, are you seriously going to argue that the average man or woman in the street didn`t have much less exposure to debt then than they have now?
  3. Never heard of a Jaggy Nettle? It is not about pissing on chips (supply chain ate all the chips) it is about calling out a media narrative that is starting to look silly (Hey, lets Jag everyone in Scotland and monitor them with Test and Trace, but open nightclubs again so people can piss/vomit on themselves and snog/fight strangers in the street in a pandemic!) and difficult to get out of ("You are a BAD person if you don`t get a Jab"..........."But, but I`m a critical care nurse in NYC, I look after your Dad if he has a stroke, and your Mother if her cancer comes back, I just have concerns about a quickly rolled out vaccine that may wear off after a few months and I believe in the individual right to choose what goes in my body!")
  4. Managers have always done that though, I once had a manager who was running a different business for himself in our company work time, he popped in for a few minutes at the start and end of the day and was always pleasant and helpful, they sacked him of course when it came out. The present WFH is unique though in that it has affected large numbers of ordinary non-managerial workers. The fun, or not so fun starts now that the Furlough scheme has ended, many will be tripping over themselves to get back to the office for a brown nose/job keeping session with the boss.
  5. BJ sniffs glue (obviously) and he is also a secret vegan (not a lot of people know that)
  6. Amazing how long it has taken, and how quickly they nailed the Covid problem with a simple "Jab" (I think you might need to contact a few media outlets and correct their spelling also LOL https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/lifestyle/health-wellbeing/2643522/difference-between-third-jag-and-booster-vaccine/ ) You know exactly what I mean by media "babble", it is using a straightforward story that people only need to hear once and using it as a prop to fill hours of talk that doesn`t really benefit anyone, so stop trying to take some sort of moral high ground, it is pathetic.
  7. To "understand" something properly you have to live through it, do you know how old someone would have to be to have been caught out by rising rates in the past? And in the past the ordinary guy and girl had nothing like the debt burden they have today...... I will for the last time clarify what the bit quoted obviously means, you seem to have had a Tardis moment and decided that my quote means that someone buying a property could think that they bought some other physical item that wasn`t a property?? or WTF are you talking about? So, 1) Many assumed they were buying a long term monthly commitment that would be less than renting. 2) Many assumed that the property would always increase in value. 3) Many didn`t think or think through enough the possibilities of expenses related to ground rents/fire compliance/other regulatory compliance Rising interest rates could make 1 and 2 false and compound the financial distress caused by 3. End of explanation.
  8. Exactly, and if they were so desperate that they used some crack-pot HTB scheme to "get in" on a development where the ground rent/regulation/fire hazard costs are now soaring they are deeply screwed, for a long time.
  9. If they call out the housing bubble for what it is they could win, Starmer made a good start on this in his budget response speech, didn`t get much coverage though? Of course the problem is that a lot of the Labour "heartland" went all in on BTL, so this tactic might not work LOL.
  10. Yes, interesting, and I`m sure the NG will have no problem taking over from experienced ER/Critical care nurses etc. when they start refusing ? The debate now seems to have moved to "You will take one, just one will do, because we said so", the media are trying to run with this narrative but when you start calling out health-care/emergency staff the public tend to get annoyed (one doctor on Bloomberg recently saying that healthcare workers who refuse should be "weeded out" anyway, I think his garden might start to look dangerously patchy soon. It will be interesting to see the media trying to back-peddle from this one, although I see that the "Malaria Jag" is becoming a Go To prop for vaccine babble now.
  11. The problem with stockpiling stuff in a city is that if the SHTF people will take it off you at gunpoint maybe, you need a vehicle fuelled up and ready to go somewhere safer. I saw a documentary recently where the guy who originally coded the thumbs up/down icon for facebook was it? now lives in a wooded piece of land with a water supply, a long easy to observe sloped approach to his property on one side and cliffs on the other in Oregon, and he is also heavily tooled up with assault rifles etc. His mental health has obviously slipped a bit, but he said that in his opinion the influence of social media is breaking down the political machine`s ability to run things and when it kicks off in the U.S it will just be a massive gunfight with no knives, he also regrets creating the famous icon because it is "dopamine for lab rats" and basically just f*ucks people up if they spend long enough obsessing about it.
  12. They can`t pull the trigger and make it happen, that loses too many votes, but hopefully an "event" in China/Global credit markets etc. will dot he job for them, and then they will ride the "housing never been more affordable" horse like a drunken rodeo star.
  13. It is the fact that they won the election that is keeping them in power, we have not had another election yet? They are only in power because Labour couldn`t just get it together to say that the Brexit vote won and had to be upheld. Boris would have jumped on the "2nd Ref" horse if he thought that was going to win, he blagged his way in and just has to waffle his way to the next election, nobody seriously expects him to have any real answers do they FFS? The ONLY answer is that the public wake up, stop borrowing so much, switch off the telly and stop playing the game, everything else is just noise, maybe the planet is going to intervene anyway and put the brakes on for us?
  14. My original quote was that people just expect "profit" from property, they don`t contemplate an alternative in many cases IMO, if they did transactions would drop significantly, many also don`t process that unless they are downsizing they are not making anything, what you are waffling on about though I have no idea.
  15. I said they bought something other than a money making machine, not that they bought something other than a property, we know they bought a property, many of them probably thought it was also going to be an ATM though, but in the case of the fire safety mess for example it will be a lifelong money pit for a lot of people.
  16. If they bought recently they expected something that would go up in price or at least break even, if rates rise that won`t happen, and many will be trapped, even if they don`t get caught in the fire-safety nightmare.
  17. If interest rates rise they have not bought what they thought they did, or do you disagree with this?
  18. Not yet, but as you know these things can turn very quickly, and many more ordinary punters are exposed unlike similar "emergencies" of the past....................(drum roll and BJ the clown pops out of a cake to an empty room, like Erika Eleniak in "Under Siege")
  19. KS is looking quite capable now, he could win if he gets some clear policy across, unfortunately the main one we need, bursting the property bubble, would piss off far too many to be a vote winner. Let`s hope China and the global credit markets can do the heavy lifting of f*ucking up the low rate debt monster for them instead?
