    Annoying Troll
  1. It's just that your "threefold increase" sounds a lot less dramatic when you look at the facts and se the very low base you are starting with. Not that you ever let facts get in the way of your prejudices. And if you sold your house near a mosque for a profit you wouldn't be living near it would you - so wouldn't need to worry about any disadvantages. Why are you a bull? Because I live in Spain and thought it would be rude not to be. Do you really live in Spain? Yes.

  2. Here's what I wanted to hear: "Next we talk to Location Location Location's Kirstie Allsop, a young woman who lives in a van because she can't afford a house, about how she wants to help first-time buyers get on the property ladder." Why are you a bull? Because I live in Spain and thought it would be rude not to be. Do you really live in Spain? Yes. "Everyone sees what you seem to be, few know what you really are; and those few do not dare take a stand against the general opinion." Machiavelli
  3. http://www.leicester.gov.uk/index.asp?pgid=1009 Hindus still outnumber Muslims in Leicester. In 1983 Muslims made up 4.3% of the population. At the 2001 census they made up 11.03% of the population. Which means about 88% of the population of the city weren't Muslims at that time. Much more exciting though to talk about white flight, threefold increases, etc., Incidentally, if they do build a mosque near you, the price of your property may well increase not go down: http://www.bbc.co.uk/leicester/content/art...e_feature.shtml Why are you a bull?

  4. Definitely deserves repeating on the main forum. No doubt VIs in parts of Scotland will be doing a similar about facr at some point soon. Why are you a bull?

  5. Blair is now on £7 million a year. http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2008/jan/29/uk.tonyblair His wife also earns a pretty penny. Much as I'd love to see it , I can't seriously see Tony selling apples on a street corner any time soon can you? Why are you a bull? Because I live in Spain and thought it would be rude not to be. Do you really live in Spain? Yes. "Everyone sees what you seem to be, few know what you really are; and those few do not dare take a stand against the general opinion." Machiavelli
  6. Who in their right mind would hand over vast sums of money to an "agent" who only deals by phone /email to buy property anywhere let alone Bulgaria? Have you actually seen the property? If so who showed you it? And what does your solicitor think you should do?
  7. Yes I do believe the mods should give me my own troll avatar - preferably one that was in focus.
  8. Is that you Eric? Why are you a bull? Because I live in Spain and thought it would be rude not to be. Do you really live in Spain? Yes. "Everyone sees what you seem to be, few know what you really are; and those few do not dare take a stand against the general opinion." Machiavelli
  9. Listen you cupid stunt. I'm the annoying troll around here. Switch your parents' computer off and do one.
  10. Your new "obviously" proviso should apply to ANY property you buy in Spain or elsewhere. That's the advice that should be given to anyone buying in Spain not what you said in your first post. As for rural properties, it is well known that many were built illegally during the last 30 years or so when nobody much cared what happened in the countryside. Just because they have been in continuous use as a house for years counts for nothing when the bulldozers move in or the owners are charged for infrastructure when the land is reclassified and earmarked for development - as has happened countless times. So it is not "generally true" that if you buy an old property you will be okay. Why are you a bull? Because I live in Spain and thought it would be rude not to be. Do you really live in Spain? Yes.

  11. It would actually be hilarious. A flight full of hpcers arriving at Polaris World.
  12. The article hits the nail on the head when it compares the Polaris World developments to The Truman Show. There is something very surreal about them, something just not right. The string of ads on British TV are looking increasingly desperate.
  13. Not true, especially if you are buying an old property in a rural area. Why are you a bull? Because I live in Spain and thought it would be rude not to be. Do you really live in Spain? Yes.
