  1. Young couple I know both early to mid twenties. Not yuppies she's a child minder he's semi skilled.living with parents are completing next Monday on a place 20 miles away as that's all they could afford. They don't care about Brexit. All their lives they've only seen it go up and be propped up.
  2. oh, I would love that too. Im older, lazier and have a four year old. However, theres allways something to be done anyway. saw a place last weekend. the bloke has done it up immaculate, not a smear of paint on a froseted window in sight. Trouble is its way to flashy for our tastes. white and black harlequin tiles floor in kitche. high gloss. roll top bath in the middle of the bathroom. so i would have to pay him 100k more for all his hard work and live in a house that, allbeit modern. still looks over the top to me. and isnt as functional as I would like anyway. The money we save easily pays
  3. Thats pretty much exactly waht mine was like when i moved in. over the last 10 years we have room by room sorted it out to our taste. which is pretty much a viewer with no imaginations dream. All those things are seen as a positive to the savvy buyer. as it drives away the numpties and they are much better value. I used to laugh at the 'House doctor' programs. Dickheads look round a dated house with crappy wallpaper and swirly carpets and toungue and groove kitchen celing. Come out shaking their head, get interviewd byt he 'doctor'. And claim they they wouldnt with a bargepole ( usually th
  4. Tommy Cooper you muppet. Tommy trinder was years before. Ive seen clips of him in early recordings of the palladium shows. he was one of the last guard of the music halls and as such looked utter shite. I belive his catch was '' hes down again mother''.
  5. Posted 16 May 2010 - 06:57 PM When I first joined here in jan 08. I questioned the forum group mentality that is wasnt 'different this time' and was called a troll because of it. In fact I was then and am now overall bearish. But I wasnt convinced that there would be this huge early 90s style crash for a few reasons: 1) Way more concerted vested interest. ( including a mad PM that actually wanted high house prices. 2) Way more media coverage than previous times ( Kirsty Phil) 3) This was my big warning. The sheer amount of bitter buyers to be waiting for a crash just to buy . ( That wil
  6. actually, its quite common. reminds me of the old phrase ' its always darkest before the dawn' when youve been waiting so long, and its been so hard, for something to come good. its very easy to give in just near the end. traders expereince this when they run their bad positions 10 times further than they run their good ones. always easier to sit and do nothing when your screwed anyway. soon as u see a fighting chance and its coming your way, thats when the jitter kick in. I imaagine the Op is expereincing this, compunded with having to move yet again.
  7. [iMarkets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solventi] what many on here have bene saying since the beginning has been right, and is proving to be true. its been a shock to al how far the madness wentand just bizarre that govts would wish it to continue.
  8. I dont think he expects them to listen. he wants them to worry about what WE are listening to.
  9. Very kind of you TIM. You may be suprised to hear this but your not the only one ( think what site your on ): Posted 16 May 2010 - 06:57 PM When I first joined here in jan 08.

  10. Your too kind. Im around, mostly read posts. Dont have too much interest in arguing the toss over what 'velocity of money' ''really means''

  12. not quite worked tho mate. as the peasants dont work, and we just have to keep supporting them.
  13. I wonde what you guys think of this? its hardly an original thought I know, but due to my employment putting me in a position of trust amongst people of all social/economic classes. I keep coming back to this: the welfare state has encouraged the very least amongst us to reproduce the most. I am constantly meeting young single mothers that have no job, have never even mentioned job or career to me. they have a boyfriend that 'lives with his parents' yeh sure. they get given a flat and benefit. the thing is these are often well spoken, intelligent girls, that could have made thier way. but th
