  1. Some good replies in the comment section of that wolfstreet article: "@SocalJim, I know you want to pump housing prices, but your comment is some of the worst mumbo-jumbo drivel word-salad I have read on quite some time. Do you think writing nonsensical sentences will drive up housing prices?" etc.
  2. Ha! I do like you Imhal! It's not that they are too difficult to articulate it's just that there are so many it's tiring and trite to go through them. It's gone beyond arguing it now as everyone has heard the arguments and I have never met anyone prepared to change their mind (apart from me but I'm special). I have noticed that personality-wise, remainers tend to be more money-minded and possible narcissistic whereas leavers seem to have a more long-term, more selfless attitude. That's why I am drawn to the leavers. Leavers tend to be more duty-based and the kind of person who w
  3. Hi Imhal - I honestly find it hard to explain. It's one of those things whereby if you have to ask me then there is nothing I can say which will mean anything. We both know the arguments so it's just now a matter of which direction 'calls to you'. If I pinpointed anything it would only be one tiny thing in a sea of things. It would trap me and I've found that talking to remainers is like putting your hand into a cage full of wild animals: there is no calmness, no understanding, no grace. My hand gets grabbed and mauled. Lots of "So you're saying that..." etc goes on and I feel bullie
  4. I cheer-lead Brexit and I'm not loaded. Yes I know the above are very rich. I don't really care - Brexit isn't about the money for most supporters. Remain argument ; "Money". Brexit argument "Pride". Yes I know, silly isn't it? But it's true and this is where people miss the point. Remainer rich are a-plenty and they have their own financial reasons for staying. The millionaires shown above just happen to support the same cause as me. Coincidence. They get tax relief, I get a sense of pride. It's all I've got really and it's worth a lot.
  5. It's all about the Boomers I think. Will they all try to downsize at the same time? I actually think now a lot of them have seen what is out there and for how much it's not worth selling their Boomer-Palaces and buying a far far smaller place for only a bit less money. Boomers cannot ever REDUCE their living standards and Pose-factor therefore I predict they will stay in their pads and not sell them for anything less than absolute top-dollar. Result? Gen X will not be able to aspire to the life their parents as the big posh pads are now far out of reach. Honestly, I think we are
  6. Can I reply to my own post? Doing it now. I do suspect however that this hyper-inflation of house prices is the portent of something huge. I think the globalists have had a go at keeping it going and in doing so have created a monster. I am going to call crash - not immediately but soon.
  7. I reckon lots of Gen X and possibly boomers are getting into BTL around here. Any little FTB house is being snapped up, done up and 100K added to the price. That is buy to sell I know but it shows what's going on. A bungalow down the road which we looked at 2yrs ago was 195 - they did it up a tiny bit and now it's 280. That is not unusual for around here. At least 75 thousand in 2 years for any house. It is nice round here and I think there is a bit of city flight to areas like this. Even with endless new builds around Pershore, Ledbury, you name it - massive estates which only appe
  8. Freki - weird one but yes we did. Anything we had been eyeing up sold immediately and we missed out on them and all we are left with now are the estate houses in v poor condition. We expected everyone else to smell the coffee and take reductions in their asking price but no-one is budging by even 5 thousand. Yes we did spend ages on Rightmove and drive-bys too but it's only when you actually get into a house do you see the true horror. There is no point viewing houses if you haven't got an offer on your own house as any offer you may make is laughed at by the EAs and in one case the other
  9. Here in Malvern nice houses are selling within a week. We're trying to sell (got 4 offers in 2 days) but everything we like the look of has gone up 70,000 in a few years. Apart from ours of course. Wife is on the phone to the estate agent now saying put it up by 70,000 as we can't afford to move. We tried offering on a tiny place which was wildly overpriced and they wouldn't take even 1pc off the full asking. Not looking good yet - we won't ever be able to move 'up' - only far into Herefordshire - and as everyone knows, it's dark there. Like Mordor. Estate houses are not selling
  10. Perhaps Q will have them indicted and send them all to Gitmo.
  11. You won't find this headlined in the BBC. Most of the executives I suspect benefit from insider knowledge and backhanders. I think anyone with half a brain knew help to buy was a scam.
