  1. Excellent post. I've never heard an informed discussion on slavery in the media, let alone of the millions enslaved and tranported before Europeans arrived. The sale of African slaves can be traced back to antiquity. It became popular in the seventh century when Islam was gaining strength in North Africa. This was seven centuries before Europeans explored the continent and ten centuries before West Africans were sold across the Atlantic to America. Wiki
  2. This would have got more response on the main board. It's topical, but very depressing.
  3. Living in the storage unit, and subletting the far end with the oil patch?
  4. Any new car advert which shows the vehicle on totally deserted Highland roads, and talks about 'freedom'. The reality being the exact opposite...
  5. https://www.housebeautiful.com/uk/lifestyle/property/a33119171/sarah-beeny-new-life-in-the-country-channel-4/ New series. Renovating old houses again. Remember Kirsty's Homemade Home? But with a strong dose added of fashionable cider-making; beekeeping; veg growing; organic back-to-nature family values etc.
  6. Brother 30 years in music events business lost all his work months ago. One son has taken 10% pay cut in London job.
  7. And don't forget the woman who lost eight stone in weight in two weeks; the two-headed calf born in Somerset, and a Z lister 'showcasing' their lithe post-baby body...
  8. 50% off? We may well look back on this as the golden age...
  9. I've always felt vaguely uneasy about the naming of Bond girl Plenty O'Toole
  10. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8488879/Estate-agents-banned-saying-master-bedroom-allusions-sexism-slavery.html What about 'in a chain'? Let alone 'slave box'... 'His 'n hers' are no-go as well.
  11. 'Flooding the market' with 'Desperate sellers' according to Mail Online... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8315081/Coronavirus-UK-Homes-flood-market-desperate-owners-battle-sell.html
  12. He found out what it would cost to insure it, and badly wants his money back....
  13. I'm thinking of those FTB's relying on Dad (BMD) retiring this year and taking his pension. The FTB's flat deposit is coming from the 25% tax free cash that Dad can claim. But Dad's white-faced at how his pension pot has dropped in the last three weeks. He's now decided to stay on at work for another year and hopes to God his pension pot makes back some of his lost money when that damn virus subsides. "But Dad!", says the lad, "What about all those Carnival shares you bought after your mini-cruise? And the Stocks and Shares ISA you've been saving into for me?" "Sit down, son..."
  14. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/property/article-8052853/Repossessed-homes-rise-great-way-bag-deal.html BTL repo's, as well as OO repo's...
  15. No shortage of £1m ex council houses/flats. This is from Moneywise 2017... In Hackney, in east London, ex-council houses in Shepherdess Walk that were bought through Right to Buy for £171,000 was sold for £1 million in 2014. In nearby Islington, in north London, a flat in Middlesex Street was bought for £125,000 and sold for £1.4 million in 2016.
  16. They want to be a 'YouTuber'; a freelance writer; a film maker... Potless daydreamers finding out what real life is actually all about.
  17. I'm surprised the landlord hasn't metered the water, and installed a time lock on the toilet, to discourage excessive flushing. Tenants would be encouraged to urinate etc at work or elsewhere outside the landlord's property.
  18. https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/17997755.bournemouth-estate-agent-ordered-pay-misleading-customers/ I wish I could buy at my own valuation!
