  1. Look at this beauty. Check out picture 3 and then have a gander on Street View. An old Funeral Parlour conversion. Rightmove Link
  2. Steed, You live up the road from The Railway at Berry Brow I gather. If you like Rhythm and Blues live music go watch the band next Saturday night. I'll be there and will buy you a pint.
  3. I am based in Honley. I would say that Marsden, Slaithwaite, Linthwaite, Honley, Berry Brow is OK in some areas, Brockholes and anywhere including and near Holmfirth really. I cannot speak for others areas of Huddersfield apart from The Colne Valley and Holme Valley though. It seems that crime, violence and illicit behaviour is rampant everwhere these days. Someone get robbed with a hammer at The Top of Chapel Hill the other day. Also I was jumped in a toilet in a bar in town last year, a lad pretended to put a knife in back and demanded money whilst another lad pretending to wash his hands sneaked up and tried to stone cold knock me out. They didn't get anything from me fortunately as I move like a hawk ha ha ;-) . Depressing stuff I know.
  4. Disgusting, people will lose their jobs and all you lot can do is lace this thread with puns.
  5. A good band on at The Rock Cafe tonight Mr Stead. If you're into that sort of thing.
  6. True, they are practically following orders as we all do from our parents, It takes a lot of effort to actually cast your own thoughts when being influenced by your Mum or Dad who you look up to. It seems that middle Britain has been hollowed out good and proper. Even my Father who knows house prices are insane sometimes says just buy one, Even if they "fall a bit" you won't go wrong... I have to laugh, everyone is obsessed with houses. I'm not so sure I see much demonising of the young in society though (I'm 28), or maybe I just overlook it.
  7. Same here Mr Guitar Man. What are you looking to spend and roughly where if you don't mind me asking?.
  8. To be fair, there did seem to be a few rational thinkers in the audience. It might be the straight talking Yorkshire grit perhaps but mainly a few of the older end who have seen it all before seemed pretty clued up. However, I always seem to find that lecturers, teachers and public sector workers in general usually seem to be left leaning (for obvious reasons) and there was a fair few. It is the younger generation I feel we need to worry about. Those that are addicted to credit, have an insane sense of entitlement and have been brainwashed into thinking what are told to believe. What strikes me the most is the complete inability by the public sector workforce in general that they are being treat unfairly by having to work longer and contribute more. The fireman said he felt like a second class citizen. Getting to retire at 50 on a generous pension does not make you a second class citizen. I would argue that those that will be paying for a perfectly healthy man to retire around that age whilst working until 65+? themselves are the second class citizens. The Private and Public sector are out of kilter and must be set right. The public sector is a function of the private sectors wealth and must not bring it to it's knees.
  9. Us rockers rarely do. Can't believe I forced myself to wear a collar. tee hee.
  10. I was in the audience on QT last night and my thoughts are that as mentioned above the population still have no real idea about the mess we are in or how it came about. It also seems to me that people find it trendy to be left leaning and not rock the boat and the crowd were no exception. It feels like we have created a nation of Tory bashing drones who actually fail to try and understand any facts before booing and hissing, The Maggie Thatcher comment descended into booing as though it was popped from a can. The show really is a platform to quell the masses to make us feel like we have a voice, really it's just a pantomime. You could say Labour have succeeded in dumbing down the younger generation, it sure does feel that way to me.
  11. Any good topical questions to ask from the news today folks? How about this? "With the proposed idea from Nick Clegg that we should give shares of part nantionalised banks to the british people, would it not be a better idea to use any profit from a private sale to pay down the deficit first?"
  12. This is great. I had the women from the BBC call up and when I mentioned the home buy question she basically said, oh do you not have anything from the Main Headlines of the week. I said yeah this is pretty big I would have thought and she seemed bemused almost as though I should be asking questions about Cheryl Cole or something. A joke.
  13. What about something like this. "The figures for housing benefit are staggering in the UK so instead of the government paying money over to private landlords why does the gevernment not introduce a housebuilding program which will in theory help kickstart the economy and also deflate house prices/rents to a level which will make us more competitive as a nation."
  14. Hi Folks, a few ideas if you please. I would like to know what you think would be a good question to ask the Question Time Panel on Thursday. I need 2. First Idea.... "With the obvious reason the country is in a dire mess being down to overinflated asset prices (houses) which brought the banks to thier knees. What steps going forward will we be taking take to make sure that it does not happen again."
  15. The indices must be majorly skewed along the lines somewhere, whether it the low approval numbers or London resiliance et al, but In Yorkshire, prices are probably 5-10 percent down this year. Also the housing stock I follow never had a rebound in house prices, they have been slowly dropping since the fall out from the banking crisis. Patiently waiting in the wings.
  16. Good observations, I might also add another few points. 1: Those in work are more likely to save a few quid, in case times are hard/job losses etc. 2: Those in work may have a private pension to pay into (isa's too etc). 3: Those on Benefits are more likely to spend all their benefits each month knowing they have sweet FA to worry about.
  17. There was a house up the road from me that was on for £65,000, It needed a once over but nothing major whatsoever. Came back onto Rightmove today with a new kitchen and fresh paint and a price tag of £125,000. Do these people think they are entitled to such ludicrous gains.?
  18. Has anyone else noticed that Brown/Labour all trot out the line "If you vote for the evil tories they will put the recovery at risk and we will have a double dip recession". We are most likely going to get that anyway, so why does no one tackle Brown on that and tell him that no matter what party gets in power that's the likely the outcome.
  19. Big numbers get bandied around these days like it's absolutely nothing. Those that bought only a few years ago in the normal days must be absolutely pissing themselves. "Please, please let me be then one that buy's your house for 2 and a half times what you paid for it. Let me clear your mortgage debt for you, So I eat beans on toast for the next 25 years.!!! Please, I don't want to miss out." Such Fools.
  20. I say this everytime. House prices are not rising round my way. They are falling according to Property Bee.
