  1. I'd definitely check whether it was a student area, I know lots of students live in the newish housing developments, and like midweek parties. Other than that I'd leave them to it. Their plan doesn't seem like a very good one but they're unlikely to appreciate your advice, even if you turn out to be right.
  2. That is merely one ethos shipbuilder, I would prefer to live in a free democratic country where one can own land without being penalised.
  3. Rates are an effective tax although they were never originally intended to be. That is my point. I don't see why ownership of property should be taxed over and above the amount required for vital services. As for your last comment, I've no interest in being drawn into an immature pissing contest.
  4. Nonsense yadayada. Rates were never supposed to be a tax. If all householders get the same council services then why should someone in a bigger house pay more? If anything those in bigger houses subsidise those in smaller houses. I say this as a ratepayer in a smaller house.
  5. I agree with BVI on the mortgage free age although there is obviously a balance to be struck and it would be unwise to buy something which you think will be 20% cheaper in a few years. As for overpaying the mortgage, if you are disciplined enough to manage your money well enough to do it then it makes financial sense. I wouldn't let my lifestyle take a hit though, you only live once!
  6. Doccy, the amount of money that gets pissed away in this country while frontline services get cut is farcical. If any politician can come up with reasonable plans for addressing this they will be getting my vote. I'm not holding out much hope though.
  7. I wonder how long the rent is agreed at that rate for and what rights a buyer would have if their co-owner wanted to increase the rent at some point in the future.
  8. What an eyesore. They're nearly as bad as those ones up beside portstewart strand beach.
  9. md, what could be used as inflation hedges? Other than gold/oil
  10. Re: the Dublin auction, were the flats lettable, in decent areas and sold off as single lots? I might be tempted if those opportunities come up in NI
  11. Culture is more than just beliefs. If belief does become part of culture then hey, presto, it's no longer delusional. You'll have to think of another word. I will not be providing you with evidence that countries exist. It's bedtime, good night.
  12. It does not say that. A delusion is a fixed false belief not in keeping with one's culture. If you are going to use the term at least know what it means. Look up with wiki for culture. I think you might be trolling by this stage.
  13. A false belief based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly sustained despite what almost everybody else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary. The belief is not one ordinarily accepted by other members of the person's culture or subculture. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delusion Check it out. It is ordinarily accepted by members of my culture therefore not delusional.
  14. You clearly don't know what a delusion is, and the insult was well deserved. Countries don't exist? Are you for real?
