  1. I can see two easy ways to put a stop to this corruption. First: require all MPs to declare every detail of every expenses claim to the Register of Member's Interests, available online. Second: require any incumbent MP to publish a full listing of all expenses claims as an appendix to their next election manifesto. The only reason the bastards thought they could get away with it was because they believed that we'd never find out.
  2. ********! That wee thing is less than 15 acres. That's little more than 3 hectares. The asking price of £86,206 per acre is nuts. You won't be allowed to erect any permanent structures on it and you wouldn't even be allowed to grow a decent crop of potatoes either. Thre only use for the place would be to stake the likes of Gorm Broon, Ali D, Shreddie Goodwin, Tom McPillock et al to some rockbolts and let the seagulls peck their eyes out.

  4. So, what is the ReMax plan for May 4? Put their prices up? Those tossers really haven't got a clue how markets work.

    I concur with Dances that the Pymy Parliament should have been accommodated in the old GPO building. Plenty of space and an ultra-central location. The top of Calton Hill would have been best, with a classical building being built behind the already existing facade, but the GPO would have been vastly cheaper to convert than a newbuild on Calton ever could have been. Hillbilly, yes that entire building ws all part of the GPO. It was set up in the days when Royal Mail was a rail-based system. It goes a dozen or so floors down to the rail depot and then has some more basement floors beneat
  6. Brilliant place! Excellent use of STR funds, in my opinion.
  7. Yup, thems' the ones. I drove past there a coupla days ago and noticed that CB/DJ, or more likely the Administrators, have given the job to Savills. Puts Rettie's nose out of joint somewhat! Their (Heritors') posh office just round the corner is still empty and unadvertised.

    These ones were prolly fully financed by OPM in the first place, I'd guess. One of 'em was bought by Charlie Bee in the first flush of his post-Honkers exuberance when he supposedly had a "warchest" of £50M of OPM from suckers in Honkers and the hind-tit of Malaya. The other, next door, seems to have been bought at the vinegar-stroke of loony bubbledom on a similar basis. Strange that CB/DJ can make money while those two unsold and unoccupied properties, which are prolly worth 'bout a mill between the pair, moulder in a declining market which, according to Zoopla at least, seems to be decli

    In Autumn last year I observed that DJ's strategy appeared to be to put DJ/Heritors properties onto the sale market when tenants turned over. Then there was the insolvency thing and the Administrators took over. Properties which were owned by one of the shell "companies" in the British Virgin Islands, which appear to be beyond reach for the Administrator, were taken off the market. I took a look at a couple of the "New Town" ones a few days ago and they're both lying fallow. No For Sale or To Let sign, but no current tenant either. He (and his buddy, CB) appear to be playing games wit
  10. Yup, he's right. It's not oil as you might think of it though. He was talking about Gas To Liquids (GTL). Qatar has unbelievably vast amounts of gas, but gas is tricky to transport intercontinentally. What GTL does is to process the gas molecules directly into finished products such as diesel, petrol, jet fuel, heating oil etc. GTL not only adds value to the raw feedstock but also makes it much more transportable. The products are also "cleaner" burning, ie less of the nasties such as sulphur. Ironically the oil industry has come full circle. The world's first oil refinery was set up
  11. I too remember reading that crap in 1970. World going to run out of oil and fresh water within 30 years. Alvin Toffler made millions out of that crap. Since then the price of oil has gone from $3/bbl to over $140 and I don't doubt that in 40 years from now it will have gone up by a similar multiple again.
