  1. This is a really good idea The biggest problem online retail has is being around to collect the deliveries The high street as we know it is dead Adapt or die Here is another solution; I sort've had this idea vaguely a few years ago, but had no idea how to make it happen; http://www.shutl.co.uk/
  2. Can anyone explain to me what the difference is between countries receiving a bailout, and us printing currency? So for instance, if Spain needed a 500bn bailout, is that much different to 500bn of QE?
  3. Exactly what I thought! Something fishy about that purchase price 14 acres of prime West London real estate? I'd have thought at least 500million
  4. There's no way to not sound rude here, but rest assured I'm not, but aren't you quite "senior" in years? My point is, your position is admirable, but this guy is at the other end, and by his own admission wanting to buy His username is "Frozen Out" He is anything but This is why I've always said, lurkers and FTBers who post here need to be cautious about getting caught up in the overall (albeit admirable) opinion on here People's motivations differ, and someone who wants to buy but is putting it on hold because of the advice and wisdom on here should exercise caution when choosing who they take their guidance from. People with 100 grand in the bank who are opting out of home ownership for whatever reason and expecting prices to fall, are sometimes barely distinguishable here in posting style from people on very low wages who could barely scrape together the required deposit for a studio flat I don't know where the OP lives, but I bought a 1 bed semi last year for 175k in Greater London. I'm 35 and realistic about what my first house should be. Just because you're buying late in life at your peak earning, it doesn't mean you're entitled to a mansion as your first place 100k deposit and you're "earning a decent salary", something doesn't add up, and my suspicion is it's your expectations
  5. Must be agonizing for people who live in places like Marlow to own a 700 grand house with a Slough postcode Disclaimer : I have a Slough postcode
  6. You can't be expecting sympathy my friend, you seriously can only afford a flat with a 100 grand deposit, and would rather rent off your Mum and Dad? I think we're collectively losing our minds in this country
  7. Pun threads are the worst aspect of this website
  8. And that is ten years ago my friend, you could be half way through a mortgage by now This is why I bought last year, I'm not bullish on prices, but life is slowly, slowly ebbing away.......
  9. But..... Do they mean the people with money in the bank? http://www.rte.ie/news/2012/0605/eu-commission-to-unveil-bank-collapse-plans.html
  10. I suppose in a way you've got to admire idiot Estate Agents like this
  11. News reaches Poland that there is £26,000 up for grabs
  12. Balmy un-seasonally warm weather, and the Great British public collectively go mad as usual. The whole world must look on bemused at us sometimes. No strike, no shortage of fuel, yet people see a queue and assume they must join it. Price goes through the roof as a result, retailers will be stuck with expensive fuel they can't sell next week. I despair, I really do.
