    3 years of trying to sell

    I would definitely choose the Chinese themed garage room if I was honoured to be a guest of mee lady.
  2. I rent a Victorian flat in a great area. It's old, unrepaired, drafts, has single sash windows, proper sized rooms, a SEPARATE kitchen. Love it. Why? Negotiated a cheaper rent (20% off) by paying several months in advance. Land lord happy, me happy. Been here a long time. Government wants to "help" me? Result? I have to move out. One less rental on the market. I have to pay 2 or 3 times the rent to stay in this area. Thanks government. What would i do without you?
  3. I've been self employed for 5 years. Income for last 3 years: £0 Benefits claimed: £0 Number of iPhones bought: 0 Attitude to WTC and CTC: incredulous. Even on HPC the concept to WTC and CTC seems to be de-rigeur. They should not exist. They are a symptom of a sick society.
  4. Simon Calder - travel writer - says that he takes an empty bottle through security and all of the restaurants airside are obliged to fill it with tap water if you ask.

    Crackdown On Hft - What Effect On The Market?

    Can't we just introduce a short redemption rate based on the asset being traded. This would get rid of half the City who do nothing to add value to markets and society.

    High Street Retailers To Call For “Online Sales Tax”

    It's funny. I thought taxes were originally intended to fund something in the public interest. Where did it all go wrong?
  7. God. I thought people understood that income tax was evil. Step back and see the cause, not the effect.
  8. If someone could explain the definition of tax with regards to bedrooms I'd be most obliged.
  9. They should have slashed government spending, took a 10% cut to GDP, explain that GDP includes govt spending, then measured growth going forward.

    There Is A House Price Bubble

    I'm not prepared to spend 25 years paying for your house.
  11. Sounds posh. Our swings were built on an open sewer.

    Globrix Now Zoopla

    And I believe I heard that nice man mr. Spencer doing their advert voiceovers.
  13. Indeed. I think this says more about society's infatuation to convince people that a stupid kid at university is more valuable than a clever kid at college. Worrying.
