  1. I've already seen his speech. This is the relevant paragraph: "This is a crisis. A large crisis. In fact, if you've got a moment, it's a twelve-storey crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpetting throughout, 24-hour portrage, and an enormous sign on the roof, saying `This Is a Large Crisis'. A large crisis requires a large plan. Get me two pencils and a pair of underpants."
  2. Erm... Excuse me Mr.Brown. Shouldn't Darling be the chair??? -- The Chancellor of the Exchequer is the title held by the British Cabinet minister who is responsible for all economic and financial matters. That USED to be your job Mr.Brown and you weren't very good. Perhaps you can let someone else feck it up now.
  3. "The report likely will ratchet up pressure on members of the U.S. House of Representatives to vote for a $700-billion rescue package for banks and other financial firms burdened by bad mortgage-related assets, which is contributing to a spreading credit crunch." the damage is already done. Just let the insolvent feckers go and let the "good" ones survive. Free market. They are just delaying the problem till Christmas. (It could be a rather quiet Thanksgiving in the States this year). Good news for turkeys though - no one can afford them.
  4. Well from his blog of 2 weeks ago it sounds like he is in cash-flow crisis: "Anyway guess how much these properties are? You are talking around £20,000 each for 2 beds. There are 4 available and I am going to bid on them all. If I can get a mortgage on them I will make a monthly profit of.....: " Slaphead.
  5. up to 6.85 (75%). Still a bit to go to reach the 51 price this time last year
  6. Perhaps someone should send a copy to Paulson. And the house of representatives. "I voted no to the bank bailoutrescue since they clearly don't want us to interfere".
  7. Linky "Watch them all fall down. Domino Dancing"
  8. No. It's a "Rescue Package Parachute" No matter - the markets seem to be saying No. Dow 10,482.85 -348.22 -3.22% Nikkei 225 10,938.14 -216.62 -1.94% Hang Seng 17,682.40 -528.71 -2.90% Oh, and Wells fargo just bought Wachovia.
  9. perhaps the government have added HPC.co.uk to their monitoring servers and all traffic is being routed through Brown's Monitoring Team. But most of them have popped out for an early lunch.
  10. "Victorian splendid at your finger tips" FFS for £195K I'd expect the fecking grammar to be correct. SPLENDOUR YOU MORONS. But it is chain free, so you could be banging your head on the ceiling in no time. Oh. and it's in Hackney - the new Notting Hill
  11. And people used to call elderly people too suspicious and mad when they stashed all of their cash in the mattress shouting "I don't trust no banks". Seems they were visionaries.
  12. If they all agree then they can have a revote. That's nice - democracy!!
  13. they are now haggling over votes and may be allowed to change theor vote. WTF??
  14. 10,541.07 -602.06 -5.40% Nasdaq 2,046.42 -136.92 -6.27% S&P 500 1,133.57 -79.44 -6.55%
  15. "Location, location, location my fat ****" Ha Classic.
  16. TITLE: Dow falling off a cliff. Fixed.
  17. sadly most of the people voted for the demutualisation because all they could see was the free shares and free money that came with it. A rather short-term and typical mindset unfortunately.
  18. Paulson will get his money in the end. Because they can't think of anything else to do and they will "rise to the occasion". Millions protested the Iraq war (me included). Did it make a difference. No. They've already decided.
  19. caught the end of it. digby trying to put a positive spin on the fact that no-one showed up - "But the agent says there is a woman on holiday who wants to come and view it when she gets back" The EAs mother?? I guess people now realise that the only reason to sell a house at an open day in a falling market is because you can't bloody sell the thing any other way (unless she has raffle ) Mr Digby - re-arranging velour-esque scatter cushions will no longer sell an overvalued house. GET USED TO IT. oh....
  20. But if you buy it you can make £83.33 a day. "09 September 2008 * Price changed: from '£185,250' to '£185,500' " that's a cool £30K+ per annum
  21. This one has it's own. Which is nice. "A first floor flat with the benefit of its own kitchen/breakfast room" Rightmove link As opposed to someone else's kitchen??
