  1. Of course a military victory is possible, just massacre the entire population. That's a price the politian's don't want to pay though.
  2. OMG - when did you turn into a nut bar? I don't think house prices will rise within the next two years, so your statement is wrong for a start! If we don't buy now then we'll be the ones not in negative equity. Made any more videos?
  3. I think you'll find that was dropped under incredible Govermental pressure. The investigators were not happy and had some great evidence.
  4. The SFO has announced that it is going to investigate Madoff's UK business operations. http://www.sfo.gov.uk/news/prout/pr_599.asp?id=599
  5. That's not true either. The Armed Forces do pay rent (but it's negligable - my last MSQ was a 3 bed semi in Wilts for £175 PCM), utility bills and Council Tax are paid at the same rates as civilians in that area. The biggest problem with salary, apart from the fact it's nowhere near enough, is that you can't do anything to increase it. You're deemed to be on duty 24 hrs a day, so no OT
  6. I'll give you an idea, go throw yourself off a cliff you ******* scumbag. The country is completely ****** and you intentionally want to make it worse? :angry:
  7. That's not true. It used to be non-existent, now it's partially existent. It's still not brilliant though
  8. Fixed for you. You're right as well, the amount of people they lose through natural wastage is incredible. Especially with the pressure for Iraq and Afghanistan tours.
  9. No you aren't. You're either a fraud investigator or you work in computer forensics, which is it? Anyone professing to do both is **** at either or both IMHO. Forensic IT Analysis is not a part time job
  10. I hope they are - I'll get a decent return on my savings then.
  11. Yes I can. I think I can anyway. People on here take about overshoot a lot, the possibility exists that prices may reduce to 3x or 2.5x before settling up a little. The problem is that people want to own their own home. That translates into competition which increases prices, assuming lenders lend. I don't know what the answer is. I would like to see stable house prices that are affordable for the 'average Joe'. I just have no idea how that can be achieve because, as others have pointed out, human nature means that you will sell for the highest amount, not the morally right amount. Damn the Human race!
  12. Oh for goodness sake! They are suggesting that 3.5x salary is the SENSIBLE level for prices to return to, and I would agree with them. No-one knows what will happen for sure though, but we are talking about what is right, what is managable. It's also what has historically been deemed to be a sensible multiple - there's nothing arbitrary about that. Can you grasp the distinction?
  13. I'm not sure he is polarising the argument. If you think about it, he's right in his contention that for the market to start moving again lenders must be willing to lend, but equally, homes must be realistically priced. Homes are not and have not been realistically priced for the last 10 years at least. I would argue it is more important for actual house prices to fall them it is for lenders to start lending. After all, if lenders were to restart lending now at the same rates as last summer who is that helping? We need houses to be realistically priced, not for money to be made available so the bubble can continue to inflate. 3.5x salary is deemed to be a realistic managable level for lending, as historic evidence shows.
  14. I think you're deluded if you really do believe that. Look at what has happened already in such a short period of time! There are no rules now, we're on a rollercoaster hanging on for dear life. Prices for 3 bed homes could easily return to 3.5x average salary, they could even fall below that level.
  15. Me and Mrs Rapper went to Tescos last night. We bought virtually nothing and I was stunned to find the bill at £80. I think the shopping filled 4 bags and one of those was just kitchen roll and toilet paper
  16. Get your head out of her bottom man, for goodness sake
  17. For a start, don't get too big for your boots pet! Post a photo and I'll tell you whether your head is pretty or not! Being more serious, I agree with most of your post. I do believe the planet is getting warmer, but what I am not sure about is the cause. For example, I recall reading something a few years ago about the south coast of England being so warm at one point in time that you could grow olives there. There were other examples as well of now very cold regions having almost tropical climates. Is it possible that, rather than this being a man-made event, it is simply a cyclical event which is entirely natural?
  18. What if the tree's already dead? Surely then it can just be cut and burnt?
  19. What a load of crap. Prices haven't fallen anything like 50%. I was going to buy a place last year, offered asking @ £350K and was turned down. It's still on the market and down to £315K, which is a fall of 10%. Sensationalist headlines are well and good but they need to be based at least partially in reality.
  20. All women love to be dominated, especially from behind!
  21. Why anyone would want to buy in London is beyond me
  22. I love saving TBH. I work my balls off doing tons of OT every month so I can save £1250 - £1500. I know it's silly but I love seeing my accounts increase every month, it makes me feel a sense of 'worth', even though that's only a psychological feeling.
