  1. Where's the cashflow if nobody's going to rent it?

    Further to fall.

    Most of British Land’s office buildings are in the City of London, where rents are expected to fall back to 1991 levels by the end of this year, according to analysts at London-based broker King Sturge LLP, as job losses and a mistimed building boom depress prices.

    The City of London now has enough empty space to hold two- thirds of Canary Wharf, its rival financial district 1 1/2 miles to the east. About 9 million square feet (855,000 square meters) are available in the City and that may climb to 12 million by the end of 2009, according to CB Richard Ellis Group Inc. Rents that reached a high of 65 pounds per square foot in mid-2007 are forecast to fall to 40 pounds by the end of this year, according to King Sturge.

    British Land’s rental income, excluding acquisitions and sales, increased by 2.7 percent in fiscal 2009, the statement showed. Tenants accounting for 1.8 percent of the rental income at March 31 have gone into administration, the company said. There were signs that “rents were under pressure across the board,” Grigg said in today’s interview.

    The smart money moved out of the City two years ago; rents were simply too high.

  2. Could be, she might search google "house price crash dangerous woman" as I just did, and look at the cache version.

    Cheryl Gillan may not have the wit to search the internet in that way, plus you've not published the letter, only expressed the fact that you found her response unacceptable.

    Internet is a tricky thing, especially the way google goes round hoovering up caches of websites. Best not to post anything controversial!

    This is just what I was afraid of as I like being anonymous. I don't think the letter is contoversial, merely arrogant and condescending. Typical of their attitude to us, the proles who vote for them. I don't think computer literacy is her forte as the link she mentioned in her letter "has yet to materialise". Thankyou Grant Bovey, for the quote.

    However, I have a cunning plan Milord. Will keep you "posted". (Did you see what I did there?)

  3. Can you sell it to a national newspaper? ;)

    Edit: Actually here's an idea, maybe we should all write to our MPs about their expenses, then start a site with scans of the letters!

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours. It's easy enough to do on theyworkforyou (although they clearly think they don't).

  4. A back bencher wants £100k + a year? Fine.

    On condition of the following:

    • Their numbers are cut to half.

    • Only travel expenses to be claimed.

    • They're restricted to state owned accommodation in the capital, providing you live at least 60 miles from Westminster.

    • Any MP or other public servant is forbidden, by law to earn any additional income outside Parliament or represent any other public/private organisation in any capacity (conflict of interest).

    I doubt many will agree to the above terms.

    Why only 60 miles? At the jobcentre they tell people on jobseekers that they have to be prepared to travel for up to 90 minutes each way and do any shit job they are told to. And all this from people who are so shit that the only job they can get is in a jobcentre.

  5. I think we are just at the edge of the rabbit hole, how deep it is is anyones guess, however all the papers will be looking for"scoops" and I am sure forthcoming revelations will take our breaths away.

    By the end of this summer I believe the we could be in uncharted territory as far as public anger goes!...bout time!

    This struck me as apt.

    They have given us into the hands of the new unhappy lords,

    Lords without anger and honour, who dare not carry their swords.

    They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;

    They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.

    And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,

    Their doors are shut in the evenings; and they know no songs.

    We hear men speaking for us of new laws strong and sweet,

    Yet is there no man speaketh as we speak in the street.

    It may be we shall rise the last as Frenchmen rose the first,

    Our wrath come after Russia's wrath and our wrath be the worst.

    It may be we are meant to mark with our riot and our rest

    God's scorn for all men governing. It may be beer is best.

    But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet.

    Smile at us, pay us, pass us. But do not quite forget.

  6. Looks like being involved in primary production, e.g. part time smallholder will be massively beneficial going forward. No need to produce a card if you are exchanging a sack of potatoes for 6 dressed chickens.

    Have to say though if they impose the card and remove cash its going to be very difficult to trade 'off the grid' in towns and cities.

    Its so depressing that we have to think about outmaneuvering the state. Forewarned is forearmed but what about our friends and family and other ordinary folk who don't read forums like these? What have they done to deserve all this?

    They really hate bartering and will tax it if they catch you. I'm just off to remove my fingerprints with hydrofluoric acid. Ouch, that stings!

  7. I know I've posted this before, but it seems more relevant than ever.

    “It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

    Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

    Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

    In the name of God, go!”

    Oliver Cromwell, to parliament.
