    Brexit What Happens Next Thread ---multiple merged threads.

    There was only one referendum vote in 1975 to join the Common Market which is surely now invalid by the remainer's yardstick due to referendums requiring a second confirmation vote.

    If Scotland wants to be a real country then it should leave the Union and the EU.

    More than 30,000 UK retailers in 'significant' financial distress

    It has been a very efficient data gathering exercise and the selling of stuff is just a loss leader.

    London - terminal decline?

    I agree. Things will change and today's London price premium will turn into a London discount. When the music stops, small (35 sq metres) 1 bed flats on the Old Kent Road selling for £295K will be the stuff of legend. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-66301009.html The Met Police have been having a closing down sale of police stations and section houses over the last 20 years. Not to mention the London Fire Brigade which has been stripping the property estate to the floorboards.

    London - terminal decline?

    You are concerned that moving from London is "Racist"?. Well, you be joining the masses of political, media, celebrity and establishment type racists who choose to live in white areas and not in the enriched parts of the UK. In the old days a racist was someone who would verbally abuse or violently assault someone due to their race.

    London - terminal decline?

    That is the trend line. From today's London Evening Standard an article about the former cricket commentator Henry Blofeld leaving Chelsea because of violent crime and loss of its appeal. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/legendary-cricket-commentator-henry-blofeld-declares-he-s-leaving-country-because-london-is-horribly-a3924126.html

    That would be the Military Band and Guard Battalion of the German Federal Forces. This from 2010 will bring a tear to the eye of any Remainer, dreaming it is a German/EU Victory Parade.

    Millions of pounds in property wealth destroyed overnight

    Is that right, one pays £800,000 for a new house and it is still timber framed, ply board, breeze blocks, tin foil and a few real bricks for window dressing?

    Boris Burkagate Under Investigation By Tories

    Well, some in the LGBT+ community are in solidarity with the Muslim community over Islamophobia. I wonder if the solidarity is reciprocated?

    If you have never seen it, I would highly recommended viewing the World in Action 3 part documentary The Rise and Fall of the CIA with all the dirty tricks to topple foreign governments, fighting a covert war in Laos by supply troops and arms through its private subsidiaries, like Air America, in the late 1950s and through the 1960s, the disastrous attempt to invade Cuba in 1961 and the CIA getting to big. There are candid interviews with top drawer ex-CIA officials who spill the beans on the dirt. https://networkonair.com/other/1494-world-in-action-volume-3 This and other episodes are available from Network and of course Amazon on DVD. World in Action volume 3 includes a 1988 documentary on the legendary landlord Nicholas van Hoogstraten, a must see for HPC aficionados.

    This is now light years away from today's dumbed down, condescending, politically correct BBC TV programmes - Kenneth Clark's Civilisation series shown on BBC 2 in 1969. The series has been restored and is now available on Blu-ray and it is absolutely splendid to watch.

    Oh dear...HMRC starting to catch up with Landlords...

    Another interesting article published by Moneyweek and The Financial Times last year. Estimates range up to £180 million for London and £1 billion in the UK for evaded tax by landlords. https://moneyweek.com/471856/it-pays-to-be-honest-about-your-taxes/

    Kingston Upon Thames

    Fantastic find! I love the exterior photo angle/effect the EA has managed to pull off as the one bed house looks like a 1/12 scale model village house. Also no worry about slow charging of laptops or phones as you will be getting the best 240 volts in South London as the local National Grid power transformer is only 12 feet away in the open. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Dennan+Rd,+Surbiton+KT6+7RY/@51.3820349,-0.2945617,3a,75y,11.54h,74.76t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s6y2WFFQy9Z9AFiTf4szivA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m5!3m4!1s0x48760a3175b101cb:0x1269796d7a613ec0!8m2!3d51.3822648!4d-0.2958625
