  1. Theres something about Goody2shoes women that gets me off. Lovely women.
  2. The car scappage scheme has been great for countries like Germany & France who have been the real winners. When these various scrappage schemes come to an end, I think we will see these countries falling into a double dip recession. I dont know anyone who was conned into buying a car at the 2k inflated price. Most bought from auctions where car were prices reasonably low for a 2 year old, low milage car. What fool buys new, unless your leasing for a business.
  3. They are working on software which can do the job faster and safer than humans, its due for release next year after testing. I suppose if your going to argue for a pay increase, then you need to do it before your replaced rather than after.
  4. Best time to buy in the last 10 years to be sure. Can you haggle a lower price . . . probably.
  5. Its hard to find anything good to say about this bank. It has terrible customer service, it is massively indebted to the taxpayer through bank bailout, it had to rescued by Lloyds and is essentially a dead loss. Gordon Brown, saved the world from the banks through his idea (to his credit) of recapatising the banks. Now its time to take the next step, liquidation. The first order of business is to take the HBOS and move all of its savers and current account holders over to the Lloyds Bank and dissolve the name Halifax. these should be Lloyds customers. The take the mortgage book and hold it trust as a public organisation. Essentially anyone with a halifax mortgage, is living in a council run house which is subsequently owned by the local government. All mortgage payments should be made to local government and offset against what is paid to them from central government. The rest of haliifax such as staff, should be given a reasonable redundancy payment and the doors to be closed on this walking disaster which is Halifax bank of Scotland. Then the same should be done to Royal Bank of Scotland, making Natwest & Natwest Coutts the lead banking arm. RBS should close. There is no need for a Halifax bank !!!
  6. About as difficult as me crediting my own account with cleared funds of 10 million quid. If I aint got it, then "soon as possible", will have to do.
  7. If your a homeowner, then your home is increasing in value. Gone are the days of sliding house prices and write down of your assets. The recession is over and everything is right and rosey again. Well isnt it ... .. ... erm .... . .. .. NO !!! What a load of tut. From what I have read about Goldman Sach, then I think another Lehman Brothers is on the horizon and we no cash left for a bailout, I predict 2010/2011 to be shall we say interesting.
  8. Fraud is one of the few crimes which practically everyone tries to brush under the carpet, especially the Police. It is very difficult if ever to secure a conviction, let alone expensive. Mortgage fraud is even harder to prosecute against. We have all heard of Liar Loans (thanks to Eric Pebble). How many people have commited mortgage fraud, 1000 or 100,000 even more. How many prosecutions have their been, practically none. If house prices increase as predicted by the popular, and the property market starts to move again. The many of these fraudsters will profit from their crimes and dissapear completely undetected. Right now you probably thinking, so what. What have they done wrong really. Who cares. This is the reason why fraud is an acceptable crime in the UK, we just dont take it seriously enough and so it is prolific.
  9. Ireland is next door to the United Kingdom. Euro countries love the UK to join to strengthen the Euro, once it has its deficit under control too. You dont get new countries to join you decadent currency by beating upon its next door neirbour. Instead you hold Ireland up as model of how much the Irish love their new currency that they want more of it by signing the Lisbon Treaty. Come on UK, get your house in order, get rid of Gordon and join us in the Euro. BTW Ireland, theres a fricking big whole in your budget, sort it out or you'll be like Greece and Spain. We cant let the UK see what a dismal failure the Euro is, until they've joined and can help pick up the mess we have created over the past 10 years.
  10. Greece is a typical example of a country that shouldnt be in the Euro. Greece make most of its income from taxes, mostly related to tourism, shipping amongst others. Greece is a lovely country, but so is Turkey. One is more expensive than the other and that in part is thanks to the Euro. The number of tourists visiting Greece's neirbours such as Turkey and Egypt have gone through the roof, while Greece has seen year on year decline since ditching the drachma. Sorry Greece, but you need to remember where you came from, because we loved you the way you used to be. If Greece doesnt get rid of the Euro or bailed our by the big boys then this is definitly one to watch, expecially regarding property.
  11. I have already thought of a cure for this. I am going to watch BBC News 24 for a full 24 hours. A good dose of propaganda should straighten me right out.,
  12. It seems pretty clear to me that over the past 12 year Gordon Brown and Tony Blair have ruined the economy, Britains standing the world and cost the lives of millions of people, while they bring upon their plan for a new world order. While Tony took on the war and propaganda side of the business, Gordon Brown took about single handedly indebting the entire nation and their descendants to massive debts to bail out the banks, who have in turn screwed over the taxpayers. We cannot keep borrowing 20 billion a month indefinitly, house prices cannot stay at their stagnated level for long. Interest rates cannot remain at record lows for long and the bank of england cant keep printing money like they have done. All these actions are to get to the next election without having to clear up the mess they have made. We all know the Tories will win the next election and Labour will be decimated and while the like of Gordon go off to give their 50,000USD per lecture, we will all be in the sh1te here and deep into it. Of course there will be cuts in the NHS, family credits and everything else including the armed forces. Thats what the tories do, reduce taxes and start cutting, however this time they will increase taxes and start massive cuts. I can no longer read these threads each day as I have done since 2007, its time to bury my head in the sand. I dont want to know whats coming next, what can I do about it, well nothing. I ask you, whats the point in seeing the executioners axe before you kneel before him. To that end I have decided that this will be one of my final posts. I realise that many before have made the same claim and are still here, but I genuine do not want to know what is going to happen to house prices anymore, if they go down, then great if they stay as they are or go up, then I would rather not know about it. So what else to say. Merry Christmas all of you and try and have a happy new year if possible. I am off to live in ignorance, where house price inflation is as relevant as petrol price inflation. There was a time I cared about a house price crash and that time has now thankfully passed. Good luck everyone.
  13. Because the people who get hurt in this conflict are the passengers and as most of us dont work for BA, we can relate to being pished poshed about, why people play politics with our holidays. Thats where the hostility comes from and for once Injin is not directed at you, me or anyone on here. This time is directed at the BA staff that want to strike.
  14. Listen to words of the judgement today. No one but the workers wants a strike at Christmas, if the workers want to strike for the whole of Feb/March no-one would care and they can still have their precious morals as well as getting the company to the negotiating table. But why inconveince a million travellers who pay their wages.
  15. Christmas is a time of year when we all hit the shops and online stores with our gold cards at the ready, we want to spend spend spend until theres no tomorrow. We want to wrap up our products and forget about the pain until January when the bills hit the mat. Only this year, were not. Were buying small more affordable presents in cash and waiting until the sales start on boxing day for thoses big purchases. No credit to spend, no pain wanted until January, just prudent consumersim and price concious shopping. The use of credit this Christmas has crashed. Were becoming more like our European neirbours and not going mad at Christmas. As other european countries climb out recession, we have slumped and it seems were not in any particular rush to get back on the credit gravy train. Will this issue in a found respect for living within ones means or is it a case of doing what you have too. Either way the retail sector is having a hard time of it, but for once consumers are have a white, bright Christmas.
  16. All I can say is there always something to try and spoil Christmas. The beggers always double or even tripple prices when the kids breakup, so normal people cant afford to go anywhere, so what do we care. At Christmas Strike or Don't Strike. Its snowing, Turkeys in the oven, crap on TV, plenty of alcohol, the thing I will be giving a stuff about is the sage, onion and turkey.
  17. There wont say its illegal, they say the "ruling has been overturned".
  18. I've got products to put up on my online shop. I'll come back when the talk of killing has subsided.
  19. Do you work for BA by any chance, if so then maybe a hypotetical argument on a forum to do with talking bull allday is probably not the best use of your time. My apologise if I was insensitive.
