  1. How humiliating knowing that Romanian Gypsies are claiming benefits she may have been entitled to if she had stayed in the UK. They probably have been given her council house as well. Yet she can't claim sh*t in Espana. It's rude not to laugh!
  2. So, supposing this constant economic growth had come to a halt in the 1950's what do you think our quality of life would be like today then? Would all the advances since that time in medicine, technology, aviation etc still have happened?
  3. Harry Hill took the piss out of Phailure Phil a few years ago as well. He showed a clip of him pulling up on a motorbike, removing his crash hat and shaking his head.........as if he had a full head of hair.
  4. In tonights episode Harry took the piss out of Krusty Allsop. He introduced the piece by saying something like: Now the bottoms fallen out of the housing market she has had to find another passion.
  5. So it's risk off and rally on tomorrow folks!
  6. Not again. I still haven't recovered from the last credit crunch yet!
  7. Yeah, buy bank shares and then sit back and watch them slide all the way to zero. Don't be suckered into this people.
  8. No sympathy for the ex-Squaddie and his wife. They just made things worse for themselves. Should have taken the money they were offered (100k!)
  9. If the worst case scenario really does happen then a decent soft toilet roll will be worth more than some gold.
  10. "My money (as of yesterday) is on a maintenance of what I call Dogmatic Denialism by the US, the EU, and the UK. Debt will not be forgiven, there will be no coordinated G20 strategy on either this or inflation, China is going to find itself the less than proud owner of self-inflicted stagflation on a grand scale, and over-leveraged Russia will struggle in an environment where industrial ennergy needs evaporate. In that context, some major defaults are a certainty – and thus the banking system in its current form will not survive. For Western property owners, that is the unfactored development. All things considered, I think we will be very lucky if the average domestic property correction this time next year is under 25%." http://hat4uk.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/crash-2-banking-crisis-wait-until-the-uk-property-bust-really-gets-going/
  11. I've noticed this as well. Roads surprisingly quieter on my work run. I couldn't understand why at first, thought it was the school half-term but, no, they were back last week. So can only be down to one reason................rising fuel prices. It has cut my journey by up to ten minutes every day.
  12. Due to the cutbacks we had to scrap that thread.Sorry.
  13. Watch out for Tates as well. They're running down their Newhaven dealership ready for closure. The bottoms falling out of the car market, probably not helped by the scrappage scheme.
  14. How ironic. A major scam,"carbon trading", being scammed in a major scam.....i love it!
  15. Well, i like George Soros but i like the OECD as well. But which ones right? There's only one way to find out......FIGHT!
  16. They probably meant that they were never in debt with their mortgage. Which, as you say, is in fact still just debt!
  17. Perhaps the photographer was being jogged by a herd of sheep?
  18. "The World has already experienced its fair share of problems, with the businessman who bought the Ireland residence committing suicide after the collapse of his company while a London businessman who paid £43million for the Britain island was jailed for seven years last year for bouncing cheques. The claims of the erosion of The World comes as a Reuters poll showed Dubai’s house prices are set to fall by another 10 per cent over the next two years. Property prices in the emirate have fallen 58 per cent from their peak in the fourth quarter of 2008."
  19. Could this be a record bankruptcy? Will be music to some Lawyers ears?
  20. "How life was like"? Surely that should be "What life was like" shouldn't it?
  21. House prices this year will plunge as much as 10pc to their lowest level since 2004 after suffering a far sharper decline than expected last month, economists have warned "Such sharp declines would outstrip the official forecast for a 2.7pc decline in 2011, and roughly match forecasts by National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) that "real" house prices, after accounting for inflation, would still be at 2003 levels in 2015" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/constructionandproperty/8251318/House-prices-to-fall-to-2004-levels.html
