  1. 100% correct! As this deepens we will have many EU, Aus, NZ, SA, Mid East people heading back home to the safety of family. Redundancy will leave them with little option but to do a runner. Will be fun for the banks who will not even get the chance to bleed them for 10p on the £ like they can with the UK citizen...
  2. Staying with relatives in Cornwall at the moment and the bay around Falmouth has approx 13 vessels at anchor. Speaking to locals they say that this is far more than usual – normally 4 or 5 at the most.
  3. Actualy shutting up right now could be the best thing to do. Brown is going down in a way that will write his name into the history books forever - so why get muddled up in a war of words?
  4. Look at this post from a while back http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/ind...p;#entry1540960
  5. BUMP! In case people miss it in the blathering
  6. 100% correct - some HPC members love saying that we have a solid base - but is it recession proof?? I think we will see our position fall faster than most during 2009
  7. Climb for the first two weeks of January - sales figures far better than expected for December - and then a sudden plunge below 1:1 on the back of some very bad news.... ..... or not
  8. Thank you for that! Now is it just me or does this list look a little 'risky' going into a possible depression?? Those of concern in italics Of the $53.4 billion in American imports from Britain in 2006, the following product categories had the highest values. Medicinal, dental & pharmaceutical preparations …US$8.2 billion (15.3% of Britain to U.S. exports, up 41.8% from 2005) New & used passenger cars … $5 billion (9.3%, down 12.5%) Other petroleum products … $3.6 billion (6.8%, up 22.7%) Crude oil … $2.9 billion (5.5%, down 37.2%) Civilian aircraft engines … $2.3 billion (4.4%, up 18%) Goods returned to U.S. then reimported … $2.1 billion (4%, down 0.9%) Collectibles (e.g. artwork, antiques, stamps) … $1.6 billion (2.9%, up 13.2%) Materials handling equipment … $1.24 billion (2.3%, up 36.1%) Precious metals other than gold … $1.237 billion (2.3%, up 36.1%) Alcoholic beverages other than wine … $1.2 billion (2.2%, up 11.8%)
  9. Logic check - but will the mix of goods we export (more higher tech, less basic requirements for living) not mean that we will fall down the tables quickly? I can not see our highly produced items keeping up with the basic food/energy/tools etc produced by other markets (and imported by us) Like others I would love to see examples of the mix of goods we produce that ensure our position on the world tables
  10. I was notified in November that I had been put on a 'short list' of people who's jobs are at risk. Managed to negotiate a contract to continue some important work for the company and therefore should be 'ok' until middle of next year. The numbers of people loosing work at the moment are huge - as this thread suggests. When these current levels hit the reported figures (what is the true lag on this??) Browns 'saviour of the economy' image will pass...
  11. But not actual experience then - you must be in sales management...
