  1. Great discussion thread. As I understand it, The DUP are meant to be pretty much like the UKIP before the UKIP happened, in that, although they favour things like a soft border, and the impression given that a soft Brexit is about to happen, they are likely to want repatriation of powers (entry/immigration etc... ) i.e. Full British soveriegnty to come back back to our own parliament, as well as the power to make our own laws without ECHR overriding etc... They may agree to various 'soft' arrangements on trade, immigration over this parliament in negociation etc... but in reality this will b

  3. Nothing you can't do with a hoover and over cleaner. Basically most things like this can be put down to fair wear and tear over the years which the landlord would already have claimed from your rent over the years. You must make sure that the landlord is holding your deposit in a approved scheme for your protection if he isn't then you get a multiple of your deposit back... You must remember that many landlords simply regard the deposit as thiers and whatever you do they will try and rip you off. The best approach is never ever to trust your landlord however friendly he may seem, and try and w
  4. Money matters. It forms opinions. Which political party before 'New Labour' limited immigration the most - which implemented the most laws and most protection for British workers? Conservatives under Thatcher? No not at all. It was Labour in the 1960's which established a fair labour pool for the benefit of UK workers believe it or not. Pre 1980 Labour implemented the strongest immigration laws to stop the increasdingly frightening spectre of mass immigration from the commonwealth this country ever had. It was forced to do this because although their was a body within the Labour party call
  5. Thank you for staying up so early in the morning in Australia counting your money to reply at exactly 10:30am UK time to my message. That must have took some doing - did you use matchsticks to keep your eyes open? LOL... I smell BS. Australia uses a highly controlled immigration system seeking skills - not mass immigration. Now, what did you call it - fascist? - to control immigration to sensible levels and stop mass immigration? Are these Australians all fascists in a sorry pool of hatred and bile and blame then?
  6. What if these benefits- tax credits - were dropped? In a situation of mass immigration, do you think employers would start to pay higher wages to make up the difference? Or would the other side of capitalism - the wicked foot of overpopulation rule - called in science the 'tragedy of the commons'? Basically this says that if employers can import people at will, then the most proven profitable situation is one of wages driven to substiance levels and overexplotation. i.e. wages drop to bread and water levels while profits and rents rise to grand country estate levels. We have seen wages ut
  7. Over the past decade British Born employment has dropped from 24million people to 23.5 million people. Virtually all of the millions of new jobs created have went to immigrants under a policy of mass immigration. I am in favour of forced work camps and concentration camps for the unemployed. Trouble is many others would find it immoral to castigate displaced British unemployed to these camps while a stealth policy of mass immigration continues at record rates, which means more and more British workers unable to compete with immigrants who exist to work and rent a room in a house 10 to a r
  8. Small Parties like UKIP are where the political change over key issues happens in the US/UK political system. UKIP will never get power, as most of its activists know, so whats the point?. Small parties act like a dagger at the throat of the main parties when major issues are deliberately ignored. There is little chance a small prinicipled issue based party like UKIP (Mass Immigration and the EU) can engage the vast coalition of opposing factors of production (Land, Labour and Capital) who give broad historical support to the mainstream parties. UKIP will never form a government, so to s
  9. David Cameron has set the date of the next general election to 7th May 2015. Who do you think you will vote for? What is your big issue for the local elections?
  10. In the political economy there are 3 factors of production; Land, Labour and Capital. Nearly all the mainstream parties have to embrace one or more of these opposing factors to gain enough support to win power. Before the Labour Party was created in 1906, the Liberals represented the Labour and Capital factors of production (The vote did not really get to the working man/women before this Liberal era), and the Tories the Land factor. From 1906 the Labour party better represented the Labour Factor of production, and the Liberal party died off as pointless while the Tories represented Land and
  11. LOL.. Hows that crash you have been waiting for coming about? Still renting and facing rising rents per chance? Seems to me, like the idiot awards, in which people are given awards for the most stupid self inflicted accidental death, (thus doing us all a favour by removing themselves from the genepool) maybe there should be a similar idiot awards for this forum - there still seems to be plenty of similar old fools around on this board who still can't connect that when unlimited immigration means hundreds of thousands of new people in the UK every year need housing, that houseprices and rents g
  12. With over 5000 new people per week settling in the UK (over 260,000 pa) each needing housing, and their taxes for tax payer funded resources like housing benefit, education, health etc... and UKIP being the only party seriously offering to limit this, its in the priced-out voters interests to vote UKIP. It doesn't matter if UKIP can command only a few percent of the vote in your consitituency, because usually thats enough to swing it away from a major party and rob that party of a M.P. Although 1 in 3 seats are 'safe' seats, over 60% of seats will hinge on a few percent either way, this mean
  13. Its interesting looking back on this thread dating from 2004 which I contributed to. My understanding of the themes I was adamantly putting forth about why there will be no houseprice crash have matured greatly after so many years. For instance: How did we get here? Within the poltical economy, the main parties always represent 1 or 2 of the 3 factors of production i.e. (land, labour and capital). In the 1900s the '2 party' system was between the Liberals (who represented capital and somewhat off-handedly, labour) and the Conservatives who represented LAND. Then the vote was extended
  14. With 5000 new people are settling here each week, another city with all the infrastructure of Birmingham is needed every 5.5 years. If you have ever driven around Birmingham you will notice how massive it is. As you say the HMO trend is inevitable. Slumification is immensely profitable. The Conservative cap of 50,000 due to come in April 2011, only applies to non-EU skilled visa route migration, they cannot control EU migration having given control of our borders to the (unelected, unaccountable, undemocratic, elite etc...) EU. What is notable; they also have not clamped down on chain migrat
  15. A fantastic result in this election thanks to UKIP the tories have been denied a majority in at least 21 of their key marginal seats! Lost Cameron the election. (BTW UKIP are offering free membership at the moment http://www.ukip.org/helpukip) All the discussions above starting to bear some form of noxious fruit in the form of AV. The spitting fury of the Tories and BTLers about a return to 40% CTG (removing a massive tax break to BTLers given by Labour) across all business enterprises is right. It should be focused only on property, all loopholes (like CTG free primary residence if liv
