  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
  16. The current major change to the plan is to 'help the population see the error of thier ways and stop them supporting the taliban' (a summary of Browns words today) There is no nation called Afghanistan, just shifting tribes, cultures and promises. There is no elite to overcome and make sweeping political change, no 'Afgan army' to train up, no set of elections which will result in a poiltical change enforced by an army and government. Outside of Kabul, there is no nation there to nation build. The only way the west could possibly win a favourable outcome in such a place is in just the sam
  17. I think Chris makes some great points there. The amount of money, the Bank of England has printed out of fresh air, has to be put into perspective. The whole idea here, is that the burden of debt, and the vast inflation of housing, outstrips peoples income and ability to service huge often fraudulent ponzi/bubble phase debts. This means, debt deflation is inevitable, which supposedly means a decline in house prices as defaults take hold, a decline in expansion of credit, a decline in incomes, which means a decline in house prices through foreclosure and default, which means a decline in cr
  18. it is very simple. You issue, I.o.u's, in exchange for some earnest work, goods and services, promising to pay back with extra work goods and services in your currency. You then print money, which has no work goods and services to back it up, and buy up your IOUs on the market. Thats the defintion of montarising the debt.
  19. If there was ever a quagmire it's Afganistan/Pakistan its next door neighbour. 1. Population: Pakistan is under a population explosion of epic proportions: 33 million (1951) 89 million (1981) 170 million (2007) 250 million by 2025. http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?p..._8-8-2005_pg3_7 2. Culture: fertility is 5 children per woman, poverty is high, 40% of the population are illiterate, most of the poor only have madrassas which instill the same cultural mores + fundementalist. http://www.atimes.com/atimes/South_Asia/ID25Df02.html They thought they beat the Taliban in 2001
  20. What an excellent question. The prime factors for a currency rising are gains in GDP combined with the trade (in)balance shrinking. Before QE was announced, and reducing interest rates to near zero, the UK was looking at falling GDP, and had a very poor balance of trade which meant the currency fell sharply. Dispite printing money on a huge scale being announced in addition to below inflation interest rates, huge fiscal deficits as far as the eye can see and massive borrowing stepped up, and the possibility the UK may lose its AAA rating, the main things for the currency market at this tim
  21. The conservative policy on housing sounds good, like Labour's D-REAM 'Things can only get better' soundtrack. Can anyone tell me how any of it will work, with the unofficial policy of mass immigration? From Boris Johnsons calls for a mass amnesty for the estmated million illegally here with many millions more of thier relatives thus arriving later http://www.muslimnews.co.uk/paper/index.php?article=4081 To over 71 million people from Turkey's EU accession having the right to live in the UK in a few years?. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6421215.stm Its looking at the past - not
  22. Just cast my vote for the BNP in my Labour safe seat. If it was a Tory safe seat it would have been UKIP. The only way to protest at the main parties institutional corruption, and relentless pro mass immigration stance. Had a huge booklet through the door a week or so prior, with left wingers saying how evil they are etc...and little articles from searchlight, to back from the dead z-list stars, saying how terrible it would be to vote BNP. I bet in a conservative safe seat people have had the same sort of booklet on how bad it would be to vote UKIP. They won't take thier core vote for gr
  23. Its likely that Brown will be almost certainly be dumped IMO for Alan Johnson and a whole new agenda will likely emerge based on reform of parlament and PR - something which the conservatives have no ground on mired as they are in sleeze along with labour. Alan Johnson’s proposals to reform voting system win Cabinet support http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/poli...icle6361175.ece MPs like Hugh Bayley will be unsheathing thier knifes, and events are moving fast. There is no real love for Cameron or the conservatives in these safe seats. Seats like York would remain a labour seat
  24. I notice your first post accused me of not contributing here lately. Really have you missed me? Pretty interesting posts if you read them in context, you will see the corrosive effects forecast are accurate and real and are here and now. Declining living standards for most people can only result from uncontrolled mass immigration. I would hardly call them fascist filth.
  25. Hmm...My post counter seems to say I have posted many more posts on the housing bubble than you. My position is that any votes for UKIP or the BNP are votes against corruption, there is not a chance in hell they will make any real gains but they will shake up the core vote being taken for granted. And it does work - remember Jack Straw coming out with some PR stunt rubbish about muslim hajabs when the BNP affected 5% of his core Labour vote?
