  7. Bought a Endowment policy from a spiv financial adviser in 1984. Apparently he said he could magic my £50 month to Standard Life into a minimum of £40,000 with a high expectation it payout more than that. My situation is summed up by one of the comments Fast forward to today, payout due in May projected £26,072.15 :angry: Glad I pulled that black and yellow handle between my legs and Sold to Rent in 2007

  14. Ask yourself the following question. Why would the government throw the kitchen sink i.e. tax payer subsidies at housing when the country is on the brink of financial collapse? The answer I would suggest indicates that new buyers of over priced dwellings are needed to keep the WHOLE system afloat. [Edit] Spelling
  15. Agreed! Once people realise that neither party has the answer the the brown stuff will hit the fan!
  16. Ok, I'm not an economist but Keynesian stimulus ain't the solution. I spent 6 years in Japan and saw those bridges to nowhere and walked the expensive marbled tiling to Shinjuku station in Tokyo Tell the people the truth that the last 15 years have been an illusion based on debt and if we keep borrowing the can will be thrown back at us! Tell the people that to prosper that we need to make things that people want to buy which means a little less service jobs and more manufacturing Tell the banksters to f-off and let all those that took risks to get their fingers burnt. Stop propping them up and use the money to protect depositors. Maybe then they will make prudent future investments with moral hazard on the cards if they aren't to coin a phrase from Brown *ahem* prudent! Flat tax rate, reduce corporation tax al la Ireland, encourage business to invest in Britain! Raise interest rates! Stuff it, if people who have eye watering debts get burnt then so be it. I'm fed up of propping up the system with my savings. Capitalism needs capital from savings and ZIRP ain't doing shit! I need to put a lot more thought to right the wrongs of recent years but in summary lets do the same as Iceland, take the pain now, the system needs a massive reset and then we can rebuild the economy from the ashes :angry:
