  1. Yes nothing worse than having a crash when you're sober Gruffyd
  2. Wren Kitchens ...advertising 50% off plus another 20% on kitchens. Cant shift it I guess.
  3. Merlin entertainment...... I took a friend to Warwick Castle two years ago thinking it would be a National Trust property and it would cost about £6 or £ 7 to get in. On arrival it was £ 6 ....for the carpark! .... I parked in a street 200 yards away for free and went back. It then became clear this piece of National heritage has been quietly acquired by Merlin. When I asked at the gate for admission prices I was advised that well I could get tickets for £ 28 each, but these would not entitle me to see the whole site, for that I would need premium £34 pound tickets. Needless to say I refused to pay, and went to a local museum for free instead. Sorry if this is a bit off topic
  4. I have been wondering...about the mass print and infrastructure spending hypothesis DB has conjured...Could a fly in the ointment be that it takes sooo long for planning, then designing, then constructing, for instance look at Hinckley, HS2, any other public works scheme, ok they might over ride planning consent as DB suggests above, but even so, it does take time to design and plan, so by the time it all goes pear shaped, an infrastructure related binge maybe is going to come along a bit late in the game. So I would not be surprised if they do helicopter the public until infrastructure projects get in gear. Just my musings, opinions welcome.
  5. Been following this thread since its inception and I would now be interested in opening and account and putting some cash in TLTs . Dont know much about this, so, questions for those that do know, firstly are TLT etfs compatible with an ISA ? Secondly which Fund would you recommend ?, precise name of fund please. Many thanks.
  6. Seems tatty and undesirable places are hard to shift, better places more likely to shift, overall around Blaenau Gwent area the stats for sold prices seem to indicate a rise of a couple of % over each of the last couple of years as far as I can tell and if I recall correctly. Massive kite flying as always. Edit: auction guide prices mean little or nothing.
  7. I remember a time when every high st. had 2 shops whose sole purpose was renting out television sets to the millions who could not afford one.
  8. Swindon !!! No thanks. And I lived in Cambridge for a while, nothing to shout about, prefer Bristol or Plymouth though wages are only around the national average.
  9. I understood Plymouth wages to be very in line with UK average in 2013, wouldn't expect much change. Exeter £22100 Plymouth £24000 Bristol £25500. DYOR if you want up to date stats. Plymouth unemployment circa 3 % last time I looked. Plymouth is a very average place in many respects compared to the national picture, but in Devon and Cornwall terms seems to be the high wage area. Perhaps this is why Ginsters put their factory employing 1500 in Callington and not Plymouth.
  10. Perhaps the low volumes coming to market reflect the difficulties facing families who might have otherwise traded up.
  11. Made me feel outraged seeing the pathetic accommodation for 250 a week. Sick.
  12. Volumes aren't collapsing generally... as evidenced by the charts in the report. The examples you highlight are for top end only. edited for spelling.
  13. When did we lose the ability to do things for ourselves causing us to turn to the Chinese or the Americans ? Seriously cant we make and maintain the equivalent in Britain ? All it comes down to is building a small nuclear reactor and a massive watertight steel tube ..oh wait a minute..
  14. Covering debts. See attached article for details. Plymouths partially renovated Royal William yard flats complex being sold on for £77 million. ( prime water front ) yer tiz
  15. I see this one going the same way if it ever does commence. Aforementioned 32 story job for Derrys Cross. http://www.thisisplymouth.co.uk/Developer-vows-tallest-tower-Plymouth-built/story-16509428-detail/story.html
  16. Yes I remember posting in 2008 about the dubious nature of this development, £169,000 for a flat on a main road near Union St. There must be people working in the City Centre who would like a flat near work, but there cant be many earning over £20,000 pa. I also get the feeling the adjacent Millbay development zone is stalled, nothing much seems to get built there since the Cargo development.
  17. My link Article appears in this is plymouth 22nd june 2012. Basically a £22 million development known as zero one has gone into administration as the backers could not keep up the payments " I coughed up £400,000" whines a wannabe property developer and judging by the comments on the article she has a reputation which is not good. This does not bode well for some other development plans in the City Centre, I know there is / was a plan for a 30 storey block on the Ansteys /TVSouthwest site and James Brent Pavillions concept involves residential I believe.
  18. Parking can be the issue there, ( lack of ) Also students as you mention that.
  19. What about North ST round the corner though, plenty of well to do's thereabouts. No third world house prices in Bedminster either.
