  1. Unless the house has been extended, I don't think you're going to be getting that much square footage in a standard 3-bedroom house - certainly not down where I am anyway. As a rule you'ld do well to get around 950-1000.
  2. I was too wondering this....then I read this on the BBC website..."The official unemployment figure - which is based on a survey - has been diverging from the claimant count for several months." I must admit to not knowing how these figures are generated in the past, however, I was surprised to read it was based on a survey....From what I can tell, these numbers are based upon a regular household survey, which I presume, asks people if they are employed or not..... Therefore, I deduct that the unemployment figure is ********, and the claimant figure is the only figure which should be reported....
  3. 88 stores in China, with 22,648 employees. 145 stores in the US, with 3,246 employees. Are the China stores the size of small towns?
  4. It's in Luton though....As for the quiet location, I'd imagine it is....if you're deaf...
  5. I was going to spare you this, but if been baited by your ignorant reply and can't help myself..... Please tell me what you base this opinion on, I'm genuinely interested. Don't get me wrong, the pay structure above makes a lot of sense (and, as it goes the teachers I know don't earn vastly different amounts to that anyway). However, i'm interested to know how you've formed the opinion that it's BS about them doing work in the holidays....(For what it matters, the hours they work in term time probably justifies them not working in the holidays IMO.....)
  6. Then you should recieve help if it is needed until you are in a position where you don't need that help. The difference between the teo situations being that if you had worked, you more then likely had a plan in place which allowed you to support children before you had them. This person on the other hand, has never worked, and appears to simply expect other people to pay for his offspring. Sterilise the clown IMO!
  7. Excellent, some more overpriced shite which I won't be able to afford....I'd imagine this will never happen anyway, people round there vote against any housing developments in force....
  8. Sound like a plan to me....I'm currently toying with putting an offer in on the below property... http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-15679012.html Currently up for £174,995, however, property bee paints an interesting picture.... 20 February 2011 * Price changed: from 'Offers in Region of £170,000' to 'Offers in Region of £174,995' 08 February 2011 * Price changed: from 'Guide Price £179,995' to 'Offers in Region of £170,000' 03 January 2011 * Price changed: from '£182,500' to 'Guide Price £179,995' 13 September 2009 * Agents Telephone changed: from '08452239347' to '08453048927' * Price changed: from '£199,950' to '£182,500' 22 January 2009 * Price changed: from '£159,950' to '£199,950' * Subtitle changed: from '3 bedroom terraced' to '3 bedroom terraced house ' 21 September 2008 * Price changed: from '£199,950' to '£159,950' 20 April 2008 * Initial entry found. I think my potential offer of £140,000 is more then fair....
  9. I'm not really trying to suggest it's out of compassion for FTB's, just don't get that the agents gave us a spiel about the state of the market and people needing to be realistic and yet there are houses coming on as I type this for the most obscene prices. Hell, take a look at this which came on today.....This area is a fing hole and nothing has EVER sold in it at a price which even touches this..... http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-32636666.html
  10. This is what I don't quite get. We recently put our flat on the market and the agents were all pushing to put it up about 5-7k more then what it was brought for in 2004 (and it was in a total mess then, and is pretty top notch now). And yet, houses are being marketed at prices far exceeding their 2004 prices. It's almost like they are trying to knock the entry level properties as low as they can to allow FTB's on the 'ladder', and leave those who are 'moving up' to take a massive hit....
  11. I'm noticing this where I'm looking as well (Harlow, Essex) - lots coming onto the market, however, some of the prices are still beyond belief. Saw this beauty come on the other day.... http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-32588147.html Thing is, some mug will probably pay this....
  12. I have no idea if they did or not, however, my point is that opinions and policies do (and have to in certain situations) change depending on the current situation. The Lib Dems made these original pledges based upon them having a majority control in government. If they had this and still changed their minds then I could possibly understand peoples anger towards them, however, they do not, and them opposing this would be about as useful as pi**ing into the wind the morning after a skinfull of beers.
  13. Those were policies which he campaigned for on the basis that they were elected as the sole party in government, this isn't the case, which makes it an entirely different ball-game. Perhaps they have realised that their policies are unworkable, perhaps they have changed their opinions based upon having a better understanding of the countries finances. At the end of the day, I'd much rather they voted for what is better for the country as opposed to maintaining their credibility - surely that's what we really need?
  14. Of course, much better to fund everyone going to uni and dossing for an extra few years - would obviously be money well spent...Seriously though, I really don't understand what people expect the Lib Dems to do here. It's likely to get passed irrespective of their votes, therefore, what possible good is going to come out of them voting against?
  15. I'd personally say this would have a very limited effect. Those numbers are grossly exagerated for a start. Secondly, based upon my experience, a lot of GSK staff are not located within Harlow.
