  1. "The fundamental problem of the Conservative Party is that it doesn’t have a strategy - and hasn’t had one for four years." Well, it has now been 10 years, and there is still no settlement. The Tories have ignored strategy, and instead jumped from tactic to tactic. As a result they have never seemed anything other than muddy-headed and negligent of their own future. What’s to fasten on to? What’s to vote for?
  2. I blame N. Korea. However, I understand Kim Jong II wears glasses, and as everbody knows it's not right to attack ANYONE with glasses. Chortle!
  3. I think the same could be said of this lot: http://www.bbc.co.uk/apprentice/ Some have degrees, some don't; but most of them are crap...chortle!
  4. SPENDING THE KEY UNCERTAINTY Indeed, uncertainty remains, particularly over spending.

    A chief economist recently told a meeting at the World Economic Forum that the US was headed for a property bubble. The cause, he said, was people's use of their houses as "massive ATM machines". Chortle!
  6. "I will not allow house prices to get out of control and put at risk the sustainability of the future." Gordon Brown, Chancellor of the Exchequer November 1997 Chortle!
  7. Tis coming up to the 10th anniversary of when Nick Leeson bust the bank that was Barings; Nick is a regular on the after-dinner circuit and is often quoted in the media, issuing dire warnings that a debacle similar to Barings may well happen again
  8. I want to talk with the organ grinder, not the monkey ... chortle!
  9. Can't wait to see how they explain next month's negative figures - most probably blame it on the bad weather ... chortle!
  10. "Those who can - do. Those who can't - teach. Those who can't teach - teach gym and those who can't do anything - taught at my school." ... chortle!
  11. It's looks safe enough for a pig .... or maybe not? "He huffs and he puffs and he blows the house down"... chortle!
  12. How strange that the only ppl allowed on air were a dad who's son had already bought a property without stamp duty, and a young lady who had just bought a place with her b/f for 140k (borrowed the stamp duty cost from her parents) ... all the other txt messages were along the lines "we really don't give a s**t about stamp duty as we can't afford the current property prices in the first place!"
  13. http://www.scambs.gov.uk/scambs/news.nsf/0...19?OpenDocument "half the population have incomes significantly below the average (the median income ie the half way or mid point in the distribution of incomes, is £15,000 in Cambridge and £17,400 in South Cambridgeshire)" - 50% of households could not afford to buy an average home in the area - 80% of employers have recruitment problems and 50% problems with staff retention, related to high house prices and rents - Key workers are looking to buy and not to rent.
  14. You're right - there is a drug ridden council estate in Huntingdon where 70K would get you a small studio flat; that will teach me to be a snob ... chortle!
