Also, some of those companies were dissolved with negative net worth. I'm not suggesting anything untoward of course such as outstanding Corp tax etc etc... Just interesting to read. Might download some of the Annual Accounts, just for fun really....
  2. Madmax, I don't have to tell you that nobody can predict what will happen over the next few years. We could carry on as we are for decades or there could be some event around the corner that sparks off a correction and monumental depression. We're doing "OK", not brilliantly, just OK... Even though we've got a bit of equity in the house (very little of it through HPI I might add, we bought in 2008, it was all savings for us and a little bit of help from parents (little bit, not a lot, plus we've paid it back now), I had a largely curable cancer and the precise house we wanted came up, it could of gone either way for us), I would still love to see a gigantic crash. I don't care if we go into negative equity, we'll simply never ever move. It's a small house, not a massive mortgage, bring on that crash, if only to wipe the smiles from the faces of the feckless. Feels like for people like yourself and many others, if life were in any way fair there would be a crash. Life is not of course like that, more's the pity... It does feel like a crash in inevitable though. My own opinion of the PTB keeping house prices at this level and playing around with schemes like HTB etc, is that it's like when you watch those TV programmes that show a car out of control narrowly missing other cars, getting more and more out of shape until - crash.... At some points it looks like the driver might just get away with it, they're still pointing forward for the most part after all, but you just know it's going to end in carnage. Good luck to you mate... Hope it all works out, like you say it's about your son at the end of the day... (Edited to say we had a bit of help from parents).
  3. I seem to remember him fishing them in gleefully as if they were a perch! I might be up there these days... This very posting might affect my standing!
  4. Guy I've been working with for a few months saw me looking at HPC the other week. We've never really discussed matters such, his reaction was something along the lines of "housepricecrash, love that site".... Made me laugh... feels like a secret club....
  5. I have been on here since early 2007, (registered in 2008). I'd say I come on here generally between 1 to 5 times a day but I do occasionally go through busy periods where I am not looking for maybe 3-5 days, sometimes a couple of weeks. I re-read the Serpico posts today at work, fascinating as ever... Made me feel a bit empty again, first time I read it I was struck by the random nature of success and how some people fluke success whilst others struggle all their lives for very little. I'm not on here to make a big point or anything, just to say I'm a lurker really. I am watching you all! I've got my fingers crossed for the big crash still, there seems like little else I can do other than wish for it these days. Pip pip...
  6. Another conceited champagne socialist. I literally cannot listen to him. Thank god he is not drive-time.
  7. Sorry, that might have been me. I can assure you I will never be voting for them ever again.

  9. Here is how devalued we have become and how times have changed (I feel a rant coming on). It also demonstrates why I think we are partly to blame for this mess we are in... In about 1984 my parents bought a Barbeque. We used to drive to Whitby and park up in lay-bys on the way and have a barbeque with extended family etc. There would have been, whilst grilling questionable meat, conversations about the miners strike, arguments about Michael Foot and full on shouting matches about the political direction of the country. I would have been about 10 but understood even at that age where my parents saw themselves and regularly heard about how my dad had written to Virginia Bottomley if for no other reason than to get something off his chest (we were Labour kids BTW). As kids we used to watch Spitting Image on portable TV's in our rooms not quite understanding everything we were watching but looking back now I feel that this was the last of the political and social commentaries for the masses that we will probably never enjoy ever again. It was a digestible and amusing 30 minutes of Private Eye magazine for the masses and one that even as a 10 year old you looked forward to watching. What the hell has happened in the last 30 odd years? 1984 was probably the point that we started to let them "get away with it"... It was the age of the home computer, breakfast television, privatisation of national industry and the introduction of modern banking where instead of deposit accounts paying out modest levels of interest we were introduced en masse to unit trusts and endowment mortgages. This is where it all started to go wrong in my opinion. The main reason as far as I can tell is because if you had a mortgage in the early 80's it was much as it was later to become in the late 90's... You had convinced the bank into lending you the money and it was Jam today at that point. But why as a nation did we lose sight of the importance of political and banking responsibility? I think the recession of the early 90's played its part and once we were out of the worst if it (1994?) everyone focused on what was to become the great spend up. I think we actually lost sight of what was important a while before that however... The rot started to set in during the Thatcher years and we have allowed ourselves now to be distracted to the point that we have machines in our front rooms that record automatically the sort of sh1t that 30 years ago we could not even comprehend watching. People here on HPC navigate on autopilot to pages/content on the internet that 30 years ago would have been only accessible to fifth columnists / intellectuals found in certain parks in London yet 99.9% of the country manage only to find the latest bra someone called Beyonce, a traitor from the new world :-), now chooses to wear. My point is that as a country we have turned into a nation of numpty's interested only in gossip and sh1te. I don't want to get all Daily Mail on us but we are of course the nation that brought Shakespeare, Brunel and Dickens to the world. Its all a bit depressing really. No doubt I will get a right roasting for that outburst... c'est la vie :-)
