  1. FAIL When the wii was first released they didn't anticipate the massive demand for them and they sold out instantly. Supply was low and demand was high yet suppliers didn't suddenly raise prices by 50% when the next batch arrived. You really can't compare electronics and cars with houses!
  2. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/telegra...d-finances.html As above, no troll has accounted for the massive debt were in that MUST be repaid. Without addressing this the recession will continue, and to address it tax must be increased causing spending to drop and the recession to continue.
  3. Hurray the recovery is here.... except the general public haven't started to pay back the massive debt McBroon has managed to build up over his time in office. The news just gets better and better though. Labour seem to think we need a bit more debt though as Darling announces a further £500bn will be borrowed over the next 4 years to borrow our way out of the recession! Hurrah
  4. Exactly its only to 2007, if it were to be updated we could have a good indication of how close/far from the bottom we really are, or maybe Scott's keeping that little gem for himself!
  5. Your not the only one who missed this, I think only a fraction of the population saw it
  6. Anything for under £500, currently on a 1.7D Corsa 1998 85k works great and recnelty passed its MOT. I'm more a save for a property spend on as little as possible kinda guy
  7. Forcasts are always under estimated so I'll go -20.3
  8. Long time lurker first time poster (I have been a guest for years but decided to join when the curiosity of pictures and graphs I was unable to view as a guest got the better of me). We have been renting for about 18 months now after getting jobs down here in West Sussex and have been happy living in a shoe box for £500pcm as its enableling us to save as much as possible for when the time is right to buy. However my girlfriend isn't as financially driven as myself and after 18 months has decided she wants a bigger place with a garden, so begrudgingly I admit defeat as all men eventually do and we looked for a new (more expensive) place to rent. In May we finally find our place, we will be moved in by June once the current tenant is evicted (yes evicted, he was on the dole and not paying his bills), come June he hasn't left but we really like the place so we sit and wait. July comes and goes as they wait for a court date for eviction, along comes August and eventually a date is set. October begins and finally he is out, hurray! So after 5 months of waiting we finally get to move, we go over to the flat and give it one final check then hand over the holding fee and necessary details to secure the place. All is going well and we are set to move in on the 25th October, until last Friday. The agent rings up and informs us the landlord has now pulled out stating family problems. After 5 months of waiting you can imagine we were less than impressed but we brushed ourselves down and went on a search for anything that remotely fit the bill so we could still be on track to move in on the 25th of October. Saturday came and it was a mad rush to view as many properties as possible, with the last viewing of the day we found the property for us. Forms were filled in and holding fee deposits given over for the second time leaving us with just the minor inconvenience of contacting every company we had informed of the change of address to change it yet again. Now we arrive at present day, 3 days before we move with everything set in place when lightning strikes twice and another landlord decides to pull the plug. This time because they are unsure if they want to rent! Now before you ask we have no CCJ's or any criminal record. The Mrs is a college lecturer and I work in ventilation (with the housing down turn I realise this isn't the most secure job) but we are both university graduates with good credit records. The most annoying thing is all we get is our holding fee back while the landlord gets charged for the referencing. As you can imagine we are both totally gutted but there is nothing we can do but renew our lease. Its just frustrating that landlords can do this so late in the game, it’s certainly fed my hatred for them even more.
