  1. I wrote a happiness survey on Monday for the "Sun" newspaper which will be published next week, and strangely it has quite similar results to this, even though the data is from a completely different set e.g. rightmove data V a social network data. Rightmove did it on 25k people and we used 20k people , I suppose when you get to that level of data it is quite accurate and does show the real feelings. Cheers Rossl
  2. There is a trend of ex. Londeners moving to bristol to change pace, down speed, downsize, have a familty etc, the problem is that the companys here don't need people who think they can change down a gear, we have to compete in the global market like everybody else, moving from london to bristol does not mean you have to work any less, its just a nicer place.

  5. From a straw poll of my friends, (30 Somethings) - 85% of them will be getting 200K + Cheers RIL
  6. There website says they are experiancing high call volumes, so instead of calling the 0845 number to close an account, i called the 0800 number for new customers and got straight through, then asked to close my account and was asked to call the 0845 number but warned it may be a long wait!!
  7. The way i see it, I must get an inflation payrise to stand still eg. 2.5% and any other on top eg 2.5% is because I have done a good job, If you don't get the inflation part of the payrise I would look for an other company to work for, as if the company can't afford the 2.5% its most likely going bust anyway.
  8. Those figures are the whole of bristol, so not much use as there is such a mix, I am looking in a small area that I want to live in, I currently rent there so know the market very well. And for the last year every house that has come on sale has started high dropped 5% then been snapped up straight away, there seems to be a level that people can afford, so to me in my area nothing has changed since 2001 house go up by 4-5% a year since then but so does my pay. As for the five years of static prices: Interest rates climb very slowly (Should drop prices), but people also get pay rises (people
  9. Looking @ the selling prices on houseprices.co.uk in detail for my area in Bristol, it seems that the big jump was in 2000-2001 (+ 40%) but since then for the last 5 years I am seeing only 4-5% a year gains in prices, and everything is now static with no change for the last year in prices, if this no change continues for an other 5 years we will be back on track as if prices rose 4-5% a year from 2000 -> 2011, this seems the most likely to me unless there is a big financial shock to the UK as people seem to be just staying put.
  10. Expats seem happy to sell there 2 bed's in UK for £200K but are now moaning about 5 beds in AUS are too expensive for them. http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=375243&pp=15
  11. I am working fine now as well, goodbye ticker
  12. the pop up is a good idea, then i can turn on my pop up blocker to get rid of the bloody thing
  13. It is the news ticker that is slowing the site down, takes ages to load here and I have a 4 meg link, i don't see what value it adds, if people want to see the news they can click on News Blog! It's not a server thing as javascript loads locally on your machine.
  14. Most of them are saving, so they can go home and buy a house outright, start a business etc.
  15. All the poles at my friends work place are payed the same as the Uk workers, he just prefers employing the polish as they have a much better work ethic, turn up on time, never sick, don't moan, good laugh, work hard and are fun to go out drinking with. What would you rather have for the same price? A 20 year old polish guy/girl with good work ethic and degree or a 20 year old chav with no GCSE's and thinks the world owes him a living and only wants to go on fag breaks ever 5 mins. ril
