    Jeremy Corbyn wants two BBCs.

    We don't need two BBCs, we need half of the one we have.
  2. Amazon don't make the laws so I don't see any point complaining at them. They are just smart enough to get me a better price and make a tonne of profit. Looks like common sense in action.
  3. ****** political parties. Reform the electoral system. I look forward to a day when we look back on party politics as something of curiosity and pity. However, I will not live to see this.

    BOMAD increasingly required for 2nd steppers

    So we've all agreed to stop trying to reduce the wealth gap, or give people opportunities to get out of poverty. Good old fashioned class system it is. Right-O.

    Young Londoners Leaving

    Don't worry. When London is mostly rich people being waited on by imported transient labour, they'll find a way to ship all the dole-scum off to the Midlands too. Probably class it under Health and Safety.
  6. Now that's the sort of heartwarming observations I need.

    Young Londoners Leaving

    London continuing it's trend toward being only for the rich, immigrants and commuters. It's getting like a cheesy sci-fi story of two tier society. Businesses could benefit from moving out to towns/cities with potential for growth. Cut their costs and provide jobs in desirable places. Many people are just waiting for the opportunities to leave.
  8. Because the last million built were utter shite.
  9. That's a long way to go to find someone to spot you the extra fiver.
  10. Lower transaction numbers will be helping keep the averages afloat. As people sit and wait, especially at the first time buyer end of the market, and it's increasingly wealthier people transacting, the rate of change can be volatile but often won't be as dramatic until...
  11. These flats are designed for young professionals to get used to being ******ed in the ass. Know thy place.
  12. Nice vague slogans to make a few people feel fuzzy before voting. The new one implies they think they can build their way out of this. None of their plans sound like a plausible solution. Tory party still dead in the water.

    Is BTL just a convenient scapegoat?

    The main source of the problem is a society addicted to debt and unable/unwilling to protect housing from speculation or reform it's demonstrably dysfunctional systems (taxation et al). BTL benefits and exploits others via both the debt and bad policies making it intrinsically linked. Some think going after BTL alone is enough, I don't agree. Foreign purchases are also an issue but not the be all. Both can be dealt with better at the root.
  14. I've no problem with that principle. Let's try a capital gains tax on all property. This proposal is not directly targeting the same thing. It's a hackneyed approach with little thought beyond pound signs.
