  1. Is the BoE a firm? "Charity tells BoE to stop creating inflation". Join the queue.
  2. +1 I'm glad to be out of it all. Haven't watched any BBC TV this week, not even on iPlayer. In fact, I couldn't tell you what was on.
  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrs8CgpH980 "It's a puppet!"
  4. How much are Coca Cola and MacDonalds etc. paying in sponsorship? Given how they can dictate what food can be eaten on the the various sites, you'd think they owned the feckers. A bunch of drug cheats whoring themselves for a share of the corporate dollar. Truly, the spirit of the Olympiad!
  5. Silly question alert but when making an offer for a house, when and to whom is it made? Can you make an offer to the owner straight after viewing, or is it usual to go away, have a think and then contact the EA?
  6. Hmmm... Without wishing to be too down on social housing tenants (I am one myself) but maybe it's because I'm a social tenant I can see the potential pitfalls. I wouldn't want to have forked out £90,000 to be surrounded by some of the people I've encountered in social housing over the years.
  7. Mervyn 'the King' Canute Spelling error surely?
  8. No problem, I'll make my sandwiches out of iPods.
  9. The money junkies need to keep shooting up ever larger injections of cash. What will they do when this £200 billion fails to work? As it will (as has been said on this thread, you can't stimulate a corpse).
  10. I missed that one. As you say, a horror story. My dad always used to say that they shouldn't have moved families to the likes of Hyde Park. It's not a place I'd have liked to grow up in. I grew up at Herdings, S14 and we had the local park to play in, streets largely devoid of cars and lots of woods to roam in until teatime. (We even used to wear shorts as well, no ginger beer or cold ham though.) We used to live in one of the tower blocks at Herdings until I was about 2. My mum and dad did a house exchange because they did't want to bring up a growing child there.
  11. These Clone Wars episodes all look the same to me. Boom tish!
  12. I'm getting 3.9% in my ISA, which, after taking the effect of inflation* into account, gives me a whopping -1%. * Real inflation that is.
  13. They will be spolit for choice as far as excuses go. Bank computer failure. Torrential rain. England getting knocked out of Euro 2012.
  14. About half of that extra £2 billion must surely be inflation related?
