  1. Or that EUK staff haven't actually been laid off - are there any quotes from staff to put pay to this? ... after all I might add, aren't / weren't EUK the 'distributor' - i.e. they would be responsible for delivering the CD's - no staff = no delivery / distribution?
  2. The people signing this petition aren't thinking straight. TV license gets us films and programmes without commercials. Sports too. Idiots.
  3. The danger is how long before property developers start using this in their brochures?
  4. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=RKCMGGN1HFo Quite obvious when you know what to look for
  5. Living in the countryside would be my idea of hell - manchester city centre is where it is for me... but not at that price unless I do well in the lottery tonight
  6. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-192...p;mam_disp=true £50k off :-) http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-190...p;mam_disp=true £75k off! http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-100...p;mam_disp=true Didn't think it was possible but... £100k off!
  7. Sorry to say this but I agree with Realistbear on this. The simple fact is that if your parents are for example scousers, and you are born in London, you are a scouser born in london, not a cockney. Applied to the argument in question here, a child / adult born to pakistani parents [i.e. a mother and a father FROM pakistan] who was born over here would be a british-born pakistani. If this person then has a child with a another british born pakistani, the child is still by definition a 'british born pakistani' as they are still 100% pakistani. Only if that share drops below 100% do they becom
  8. Did someone drop the green marker pen?
  9. Ugh. We went to the woolies at Manchester Fort retail park tonight for only the second time ever [the first? we were hungry and saw it had a cafe from the signage. We headed in, saw the 'cafe' area and headed back out before we caught bought anything.] We braved the entire store tonight - and I'm not surprised its going under. There were quite a few things which had just been slung into the middle of the shop floor on their pallets, all still in boxes, with one or two boxes open to show customers what the 'pile' had in it. The shop layout was confusing; we walked down a small isle of statio
  10. *falls over* £150... for a toaster. http://www.verynice2.com/dualit-combi-2-1-...-pink-31211.php Does it make cups of coffee for you too? Nope, you need one of these to do that: http://www.goldstriker.co.uk/personalgifts...feemachine.html
  11. They're only a bit 'better' priced to be honest - there's a 1 bedroom typical city centre box flat for £107k in Glasgow - apparently it sold for £143500 - for that you get the normal apartment style 'lounge and open plan kitchen' (read: lounge with the useful bits of a kitchen at the back - perfectly fine just hate EA spin), 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, NO parking, NO balcony and its not even a purpose built apartment; its built in the former offices of The Herald. To me, that sounds like a ALDI property which sold for Waitrose prices and is now on offer at M&S Food prices. It's a drop but its p
  12. Wow, thanks for all the comments / responses - a few points to throw into the mix: 1. Having children isn't something we can or intend to do. We'd much rather get ourselves a fluffy kitten 2. We're both 100% for this idea - we practically suggested it at the same time and are positively buzzing about it 3. We're currently renting somewhere for £725 / month - and at the moment the best 20 year repayment on a mortgage for £135k we can get is over £1000pcm. While the sum total of the outgoing is more (£725+£600 to rent and save vs ~£1000 to buy/repay) it's much safer to take the first optio
  13. Hey all, Me & my partner are about to embark on something we think is a bit radical and were wondering if anyone else is doing the same out there. From next year we're going to put away £600 per month into savings for 15 years. Once we get to this point, we'll have £150k and should be able to buy a house outright in cash. We're also 'taxing' ourselves to help boost the amount of savings we're putting away. So for example if we spend £10 on eating out, we've got to put £1.50 into the house fund. Also taxing groceries (5%) and alcohol (15% store bought / 20% night out). Basically the rea
