  1. My wording was sloppy - apols. I've explained in my reply to dugsbody
  2. I'm not saying it is. My wording was sloppy. I was just interested in why they didn't use something like "the will of the people" as a justification rather than the blatant lie that it's about domestic legislation. I was wondering if there was a constitutional or legal reason.
  3. Why did they bother concocting the Queen's Speech reason for suspending Parliament? I think it just makes them look shifty and untrustworthy. Is it that the Queen would have refused otherwise? I think it would have been much better to simply say they're doing it to stop Parliament from frustrating the will of the people.
  4. It's sounding very much like we're going to be getting the tried and tested plan for electoral success - a house price boom and tax cuts, mainly for the wealthier, funded by a huge rise in borrowing .
  5. Is that 6% higher than previous high or 6% higher than previous close?
  6. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/feb/01/labour-plans-landowners-sell-state-fraction-value The actual building cost of a council flat of 700 square feet should be about £40,000. I just can't figure out why it's so expensive here, even when the price of the land is reduced. Can anyone shed any light on these figures and if they make sense?
  7. In the areas of the North where I'm looking I've seen a much bigger divergence between posh and not. Some areas down 30% since 2008 getting close to fair value - but others not so far away up almost 30% into total insanity.
  8. This feels a lot more to me like it's going to be a traditional 1991 type recession - but bigger by many times - than a 2008 financial crash type. So much deja vu.
  9. Won't the Fed just stop tightening like the last time the markets had a hissy fit?
  10. From the article: First if all, I think there must be a mistake in the last figure (the one for Tamworth). But that aside, it still looks like they're looking at paying a pretty hefty price for the land. The construction price of a 2 bed council flat can't be more than £80k. So if the total price per flat in Chelmsford would be £130k that would mean a minimum of £50k for the land - and at a density of say 20 flats per acre that would be a £1 million per acre - a far cry from the £8k per acre (£20k per hectare) suggested in the article.
