  1. Let's hope they don't inherit your spelling skills too... Seriously though, do you really think it's fair that the young of tomorrow should wait for their parents to croak, in order to be able to get shelter? Is it even sustainable, from a social perspective? I think not. The rest of your post is just pathetic d1ck waggling. You know nothing about me: I benefitted massively from HPI in the past. It set me and my family up for life. And you are not the only one who has financial assets, dude. But I don't brag about it here, and belittle other posters for complaining about the state of the housing market in the UK. It's simply unfair and unsustainable, and no one here gives a toss if you are "at peace with it". Go and brag on Mumsnet, they'll welcome you with open arms.
  2. 'sall good, @Twenty Something is cool with it. Gotta love the sheeple...
  3. Hello? Are you for real? I said poorer than your parents, which is a simple statement of fact, based on what you said yourself in your previous post. Hence my remark about you being delighted. But let me ask you a question: if we continue along the current path of neverending HPI vastly outstripping wage growth, how do you expect your kids to be able to afford even basic shelter?
  4. Knock yourself out, Bruce. Start a new party, get Gina M on board and you are half way there.
  5. Executive summary: you acknowledge that HPI has vastly outpaced wage increases over the past few decades, thereby making you and your partner poorer relative to your parents, and you are delighted. Splendid.
  6. Beat you to it. Larry Elliott is the Guardian's economics editor. I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry.
  7. "Prices are high because there is a structural imbalance between supply and demand." In the Guardian. I despair.
  8. We've had our fair share of disgreements, Dugs - but on this occasion I couldn't agree more.
  9. Thanks for the update, GB. Keep up the good work!
  10. Hey Jen, are you a lady ? If so, you are going against the trend
  11. Yep, everyone is waiting to see what happens with the SDLT holiday.
  12. You can smell the fear and anger in their posts today... and now this. Reddit GameStop booster under regulatory scrutiny Gill, who goes by the user name “Roaring Kitty” on YouTube and posts under the moniker “DeepF—ingValue” on the popular Reddit forum WallStreetBets, has reportedly made tens of millions of dollars trading GameStop GME stock and options. As a registered securities broker, Gill is at greater risk of facing civil penalties than a typical retail trader because the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the securities industry’s self regulatory body, requires brokers to refrain from making “false misleading claims, exaggerated statements and material omissions” on social media. Is this the nail in the coffin for the whole WSB "movement"?
  13. Glad to hear you are still gainfully employed as a surveyor, xxxx. A few weeks back you weren't too optimistic about your prospects.
  14. True, but I'd argue that only a minority of the WSB crowd are in it to "stick it to the man". Spend five minutes reading their posts on Reddit: most of them are just chasing a quick buck. Easy come, easy go...
  15. Below $115 now, down 50% on the day. Whoda thunkit
  16. Yep. Also, a few well intentioned but naive posters are forgetting this. The biggest winners from last week's trading frenzy were market makers, who cashed in on the volatility and volume. In just GameStop cash trading alone, brokers would have seen nearly half a billion dollars in trading revenue last week. The house always wins...
