  1. I know quite a few brickies in SE and day rate on site has actually gone down , 8-10 years ago, brickie £160 a day ish , hoddie/labourer 100 now brickie 120-140 a day , labourer nearly always Eastern European £60-80 a day.

  7. The one I looked at was up for 229k would go for 215k i suspect 3 bed semi I know people on/around the estate , some of the tenants are earning very good money I would bite their hands off at 75% discount , Im not having a go at the council tenants, I know some people who done very well out of the last big RTB but the RTB system is all wrong IMO and we will end up with a few tenants doing very well out of it short term and alot of rich people getting richer when they snap them up on the resale to rent back to the serfs And in the meantime the people with genuine housing needs won't have
  8. Third of ex-council homes now owned by rich landlords http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/right-to-buy-housing-shame-third-ex-council-1743338 The multi-millionaire son of a Tory minister who presided over the controversial “right-to -buy” scheme is a buy-to-let landlord owning scores of former council flats.

  11. Why do people use twitter? I just don't get it , who in their right mind wants to "follow" this d1ckhead or anyone else for that matter , the whole thing is a load of b0ll0x and the more of these so called "celebrities" that get caught out like this the more they will stop using it and hopefully the whole thing will just disappear into internet history (wishful thinking) Never been on it myself or facebook so maybe I'm missing something, can anyone enlighten me or is it just an ego trip for all involved...
