  1. But UKIP oppose immigration, and surely it is easier to prevent four people arriving at Dover than it is to build another house?
  2. I suspect you are approaching this from an academic and theoretical viewpoint rather than by being one of the millions of people who have actually been adversely affected by immigration in real life. I'm possibly more in touch with the latter group, and if I was David Cameron etc I would be very apprehensive about the massive increase in support for UKIP that we are slated to see at the upcoming elections.
  3. In terms of the effect on housing costs, the only effect is negative. Obviously.
  4. Just been announced on the BBC news that the BoE is expected to hold interest rates at 0.5%... how do they know that?
  5. When it comes to holding a sensible debate on the negative effects of immigration, I'm afraid the "racist" card just doesn't work any more.
  6. I'm voting UKIP at the next election and so is absolutely everybody else I know.
  7. I get £210 a month in Tax Credits and I have £45,000 in savings.
  8. I see frequent advertisements on HPC for a company called Waterways World, a company with whom I have booked a canal boat holiday later this year. If I did find them through Google, this would have been once, several months ago and I must have Googled thousands of things since then.
  9. I believe the adverts are placed based on two things, the words which appear on the forum, ("buy house" for example, and cookies downloaded from other sites visited. by the viewer. No two forum members will see the same adverts.
  10. Do you lay by the pool in Benidorm sipping a £2 Margarita in blazing sunshine, or do you sit in a greasy cafe in Blackpool waiting for a break in the rain so you can run 100 yards to the nearest amusement arcade without getting too wet, to spunk another £50, passing yet another dreary hour away pumping money into fruit machines? Decisions, decisions!
  11. No, you only say that because they haven't gone up recently. And so you think it will be ever thus. I once watched a local Meridian TV news report, during a period when it hadn't rained for a couple of months. The reporter stood by a dried-out river and solemnly announced "water will never flow in this river again". No doubt local residents have spent the last month piling sandbags up against the front door. Interest rates will go up, they will go up a month or two after the Federal Reserve raises US interest rates, and the Federal Reserve do not take into account British mortgage debt when deciding policy.
  12. Having been in negative equity in the early 1990s, it is somewhat depressing watching new neighbours moving in who have paid around two-thirds of the price for an identical house.
