  1. Really? I'm glad i've opted not to watch it then! However, if knowing about the bank system is a pre-requisite then the only hope is to vote UKIP, Farage is an ex-banker. UKIP will rescind the smoking ban, which is far more important to me. The money will always be creamed off anyway, whoever is in power. e name='billybong' date='29 March 2010 - 07:46 PM' timestamp='1269891994' post='2451080'] Darling confirming that they hadn't got a clue about the banking system, Not even the BoE Cable and Osborne also confirming that they hadn't got a clue about banks either - but vote for them, ROFL.
  2. Who says 'no-one's upset' about the banks - don't you ever read the comments page when these things are reported. They have,however, nothing to do with this guy's experience. Perhaps youd like us to answer each and every thread with a rant about the banks etc, whether or not it's relevant to the post. How terrifying to hear a gang of thugs inside your home - knowing they might come upstairs and do serious harm to you - and afterwards - the fear and worry doesn't go when they do. What an arsehole you are. The **** of nowhere sums you up alrite.
  3. More than this, I'm sure he said house prices had been forced to unsustainable levels. May even have been the word bubble used.
  4. Thank you. Noticed on BBC dozens of 'heartwarming' tales of people whose lives became wonderful after redundancy... all just before the jobless figures came out. Could it get more stinkingly obvious. Its alright for this woman, her husband makes kitchens. For the rest of us you need a hygiene certificate to handle food, plus a stainless steel kitchen, inspection certificates etc etc. So many people talking about their cake /ice cream/jam making from home. Is that it then. Just break the law as the only way to start a business on a shoestring. Or am I missing something here.
  5. Well the fallout if too many people are repossessed means they have to try to keep the plates in the air. However what would have won my vote would have been if the statement 'I will not let house prices get out of control' had been meant and not twisted 6 years later into 'affordable housing means being able to afford the mortgage payments' (and on a part-ownership basis too!). What an absolute insult. Still this country gets what it deserves. How anyone could have voted them in AGAIN after the invasion is totally beyond me. And now the country bleats about war crimes. Every one of those voters has blood on their hands. Anyway, shag them all up - vote independents or UKIP, at least with UKIP we will be able to smoke.
  6. The daily mail, the express, the star and the scotsman are all running this story today according to guido... should be very interesting now the MSM have got it! EDITED TO ADD: oops no, that was reported yesterday, so surprisingly slow considering the main papers all had it....
  7. Our local tory run area still has weekly bin collections... They're not all bad!
  8. yes yes, excellent to see those phrases in there... "people fear toppling off the ladder" "quality of life". Shows they are thinking about the very REAL effects of overpriced housing on people, rather than it all just being a numbers game.. Brown could only talk about the affordability of the mortgage repayments. Much liking Cameron at the moment. It will be so nice to have a cultured leader rather than the bitter pretend "working class heroes" we currently have...and the twisted social engineering that has ensued. It seems to me that Cameron is well aware he is privileged, and in that is a sense of "owing something back".... that is a vast difference from those who feel they have had to scramble up the greasy pole by any means possible who then feel they have "earned" the right to do whatever they please. A very posh man said to me once... "from those to whom much is given, much is expected". He believed that because that was what he had been taught in his posh school. I hope Cameron has been taught the same...
  9. That is hideous.. Although its quite handy the way you can look into everyone elses flat to make sure your cooker hood is bigger than theirs.. 01:45 PM' post='1839458'] "Harbourside" - http://www.harbourside.co.uk/ ABSOLUTE DOG SHIT. GOPPING. TOTAL VOMMIT. They have adverts - "Looking to Invest?" I'd rather invest in a dog turd on the pavement - at least I'd get a better return. The place is a GHOST TOWN. It's all white --- just waiting to become stained brown as the poorly constructed pile of crap deteriorates within a couple of years - just like all those misconceived "revolutionary" 1960s buildings - which turned into piles of excrement...... God SAVE US from these SCUM.
  10. Old cars use simple parts cheaply available (sometimes from scrapyards) and cheaply installed by old school motor mechanics with a monkey wrench. New cars require complex parts, have more electric gubbins to go wrong which cost a fortune when they do and require a computer to diagnose faults. The complexity forces old school mechanics out of business as they can't afford the £0000s for the stupid computer. I do not need or want a dedicated electric motor to adjust a wing mirror... Peugot wing mirror from scrapyard £5. Alfa Romeo wing mirror £200. My old peugot 16 years old...Ive had it for 6. NO major work has been done on it. Cam Belt and clutch change at 60k... I love that old car. The only thing this Gvt scheme might entice me to buy is a Crooklock..
  11. You optimist. More like "Blow out the candle".
  12. They'll have NO money (cos it wont be paid back for years, if ever) and NO gold :-) What will they do then????? Dum di dum... who will sell gold then for freshly printed paper.....
  13. well thought it was a heartwarming/breaking and kinda crazy story.. but its clearly failed the cynical ******* test...I'l go and pop it on the Saga forum instead I EDIT to ADD: I mean ******* in the most affectionate and jovial way, not ******* in a ******* way. EDITED further to add: thats an insulting word beginning with a B not a W, in not that much of a *******.
