  1. Was yours a cash offer, or did you need to arrange a mortgage?
  2. I think the OP should start looking at buying if at all possible.
  3. It has probably already been said but, we need antisocial housing for the scum.
  4. And that is just what is happening, its the way the world works. (Unless you work in the public sector)
  5. That is probable just the cost of materials,, if you then build in the massive investments required for machinery, finance, R & D, etc I think you will find that there is not much left over. Most car makers have been losing money for years. Compare for example the cost of using a local company to say replace your windows, cost about 5 grand. Compare that to what you actualy get in a car for 8 grand and the car seems pretty good value.
  6. Bit of a daft comment, there is no point in making something to sell for less than it cost to build.
  7. Did anyone ever think mortgage advisors were anything but salepeople? eg Security Consultant - burglar alarm salesman Financial advisor - Insurance salesman Home improvement consultant - Double glazing salesman, kitchen salesman Sure there are loads more, anybody got any good ones.
  8. But many people who use public transport do not shower in the mornings. Its horrible.
  9. Brown apologised to the Chinese president (or whatever he was) about the weather. Don't think he has ever said sorry to the British people about the way he has buggered up the whole country.
  10. Think Moosetea here could be upfor the chancellors job
  11. If you got time look at some of the guys replies. http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showth....html?t=1448413
  12. I may be wrong but I have a feeling that you will probably never commit to buying. You will be constantly looking for the bottom of the market or whatever. As per your original post you could have bought in 2002 or 3 but you waited for a better time (and lost out) If you want a home and you have the money in place, just do it. It all tends to even out in the end.
  13. I believe the original quote "they want to recruit graduate social workers" is at the heart of the problem. I truly believe that a 30 or 40 year old that has seen a bit of life and maybe lived on one of the estates would be a far better proposal than a green 20 year old straight out of university. I know a few people employed in social work, the word that comes up more than any other is "Career". Get some tough people who know the real problems as opposed the the theories out there and things will change.
  14. What is an enginner worth? I believe Bill Gates started off training to be an engineer (software) He could have kept at it and moaned about he was not earning what he was worth. Instead he got off his backside, and became one of the worlds richest men. "Not all engineers are equal"
  15. If you had bought in about 2003 and sold last year you would have made a fortune! Stop whining and get on with your life.
  16. If there are indeed 7 savers for every borrower, would a party that offered higher interest rates walk an election?
