  1. If the sun is shining elope off to a secluded spot and spend the day dozing by the waterside under the guise of angling. This is what I intend to spend as much of April - September doing as possible. By autumn I might be back worrying about Injinland and the rest of it.
  2. I have used http://www.sarniasilver.com/ http://www.weightoncoin.co.uk/ http://www.coininvestdirect.com/ Chards are in Blackpool if you want to look. http://www.chards.co.uk/
  3. You can report potholes, don't know if anyone takes any notice or how long it takes to get them repaired. http://fill-it-in.mag-uk.org/fill_it_in_councils.html http://fill-it-in.mag-uk.org/fill_it_in_links.html http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/HomeAndCommunity/WhereYouLive/RoadsAndStreets/DG_10026187
  4. 2005 Spending - £519 billion 2006 Spending 2007 Spending 2008 Spending 2009 Spending
  5. 2005 Tax take - £487 Billion 2006 Tax take 2007 Tax take 2008 Tax take 2009 Tax take Everything else is a mere distraction.
  6. http://www.tpuc.org/content/wirral-council-%E2%80%93-admits-council-tax-unlawf There was a thread on here about the above link last year.
  7. I checked the council tax bands for this area last week. The council tax on a band A property is one months net salary.
  8. I have seen some 20% reductions and a slow war of attrition heading towards slightly more sensible asking prices. However I have no intention of buying in the short term over the next 2/3 years. If the bulls get their way and house prices in real terms double over that period my intent is to take my education, skills and my tax contributions for the next 45 years employment ahead of me elsewhere. There has to be more to life than 30 years of debt slavery in exchange for a terraced house in the UK.
  9. According to my local rag. Avg houseprice in this neck of the woods = £118,500. Average salary in this neck of the woods = £17,400. Only 6.81 times the average salary!!! I must rush out to Oystons Estate Agents immediately, houses have never been so affordable!!
  10. I was having a play on propertysnake yesterday. Stumbled across a rather nice house in my search area that was originally for sale with an asking price of £1.1 million, now reduced to £895,000. http://www.propertysnake.co.uk/site/detail/30346424 Found another one, originally on at £4 million, now reduced to £2.995 million. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-25078853.html?minPrice=2000000&radius=10.0&includeSSTC=true&_includeSSTC=on&pageNumber=1&backToListURL=%2Fproperty-for-sale%2Ffind.html%3FsearchType%3DSALE%26locationIdentifier%3DREGION%255E1097%26insId%3D2%26radius%3D10.0%26displayPropertyType%3D%26minBedrooms%3D%26maxBedrooms%3D%26minPrice%3D2000000%26maxPrice%3D%26retirement%3D%26partBuyPartRent%3D%26maxDaysSinceAdded%3D%26includeSSTC%3Dtrue%26_includeSSTC%3Don%26x%3D79%26y%3D10%26sortByPriceDescending%3D%26primaryDisplayPropertyType%3D%26secondaryDisplayPropertyType%3D%26oldDisplayPropertyType%3D%26oldPrimaryDisplayPropertyType%3D%26newHome%3D%26auction%3Dfalse
  11. It sounds quite good. But so did "no return to boom and bust" and "I will not let houseprices get out of control."
  12. Hmmm it should be interesting when the boomers want to sell them their houses at twenty five times NMW.
  13. My employer pays £2k per annum per employee in Busines Rates, we then have to pay again to get the bins emptied.
  14. Not to mention paying something like £4 million to buy Michael Chopra back from Sunderland.
  15. How about the electorate propose a pre election giveaway? I propose we give away our glorious leader Gordon Brown to assist Osborne Gono in the RBoZ.
  16. Yes, the vast majority of New Labour supporters need to have their illusions totally shattered by a collapse brought about by Gordenrons mismanagement and propensity to print. I accept there will always be the apparatchiks blaming Thatcher, the Tories, double digit interest rates, the Americans, Iceland yadda yadda yadda, it was worse under the tories, it would be worse under the tories. But the man on the street who is taken in by the spin, soundbites and "the reecovereh" would benefit from the lessons learned from a collapse and hopefully realise that lurching from red to blue and back again isn't really the answer.
  17. ***** ******ing great big smelly fat ******* over leveraged slumlord ******ing ******* *****.
  18. Is his punishment for this non state sanctioned "crime" forcing him to use his ponzi experience to run public sector pensions?
  19. The country in general needs another 5 years of Gordon Brown and New Labour.
  20. MSE is a quite awful forum, perhaps only beaten in straw clutching by the various ex pat / emigration forums.
  21. I can feel my pent up demand, well getting pent up for an airing.
  22. I have started learning Spanish and am looking at South America in a few years time, or New Zealand as I have friends there.
