  1. I'm happier trapped in my 6 bedroom rented home than I would be in a house half the size that I would be paying the same in interest for if I bought. Some of the comments make absolute sense though - I'm sure the riots are only a matter of time.....
  2. Check it out on Zoopla or one of the other house price sale sites. If it went through more than 3 months ago it'll show on there. FBB
  3. An affordable average house at low interest rates is still an unaffordable average house at average interest rates
  4. I wrote "IF ONLY MY WIFE WAS AS DIRTY AS THIS" on the back of my car. One slap and one car wash later and nothing had changed.
  5. Referring to the OP, surely they should be made to sell the holiday and the proceeds go to the creditors?
  6. I work for a large Cisco gold partner and have noticed a few people disappearing from Cisco particularly in the Datacentre team and in the service provider business
  7. We had an "almost" power cut this morning! From about 0800 until 0900 the power seemed to be a lower current. Some devices wouldn't work at all whilst others eg lights would work at about 20% of normal brightness. Anyone else get anything like this?
  8. Unfortunately all the benefits scroungers layabouts and scumbags don't pay taxes so won't be bothered to getup off their lager filled arses. As usual, it'll be us hard working family types who'll have to foot the tax bill and we're far too polite to cause any more bother than to vote for someone else at the next election.
  9. Banks didn't stop lending to consumers. They continued to loan to people who met their more stricter lender requirements. As long as this continues then nothing changes re the Property Crash. It's on and prices will fall to the point where valuations meet lending criteria.
  10. Maybe because the market has been run by Cheats. Charlatans and C**ts?
  11. If you had purchased £1000 of Northern Rock shares one year ago it would now be worth £4.95 With HBOS, earlier this week your £1000 would have been worth £16.50 £1000 invested in XL Leisure would now be worth less than £5 But, if you bou ght £1000 worth of Tennents Lager one year ago, drank it all, then took the empty cans to an aluminium re-cycling plant, you would get £214. So based on the above statistics the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and re-cycle.
  12. Perhaps they haven't realised that to rent, they need to change the terms of their mortgage and whilst they thought they just needed to cover their mortgage with the rent, didn't realise they actually need 125% so are effectively pricing themselves out of the rental market?
  13. These Staff are the ones who primarily work and interface with the Investment banking sector eg Lehmans Account managers/fund administrators etc. Given the reduction in the number of Investment banks and the number of transactions they will need less people to service this part of their business so makes sense to reduce the heads.
  14. We never really mention the French on here. I think they're up to something....
