  1. Well I suppose they are good at manipulating house prices, Gordon and Tony presided over the biggest rises in history, socialists like renters and not homeowners, that's why Tony and cheri are btl landlords !
  2. There is a lot of talk about the first time we were asked about Europe by Mr Heath, the vote was to join a economic area, the high jacking of the European project by faceless unelected bureacrats is exactly why we voted out, I couldn't vote the first time being nine but people I know , who are older say they would not have voted for if they knew then what we know now. As for the reasons people voted out, I don't know anyone who voted because of immigration, I and the people I know voted out for democracy, Europe being socialist in general hates free speech and determination by the individual, the state knows best is a cornerstone of socilaism, hence why they are so twisted up in Brussels or strasbourg ( and Berlin ). I would rather be a poor free man than a wealthy slave.
  3. Not a shock is it really, 20 years ago I worked with a guy (45 at the time) who from st Ives and he and his 7 siblings had all moved away because of lack of work/high housing costs. I subsequently lived there(rented) and prices where out of my reach and I worked away ! Anywhere nice around the world has a premium attached to living there get used to it- youre never going to get a house whilst earning as a holiday camp rep or surf instructor !
  4. I've been checking the rightmove sold section and that bears no relation to a rise recently, perhaps they are just selling the larger stuff ?
  5. Heard the builder just completing on two homes sold for 90,000 euro together original price 600k each, delightful, please export this to the uk !
  6. Or Just somewhere to hide normally ! This is bordered by the hillfields estate, Grim !
  7. Normal theme for healthcare workers, I did a job last year for a guy who was suprised that I dont agree with the labour view and in fact blame them for a lot of the current malaise, que socialist/i grew up in Birkenhead went to state school etc rant then wifey pipes in cant beleeeve you agree with tory scum etc. What do you think their income is as he owns/manages 8 other doctors in his new labour minted doctors centre and shes a sociologist for the NHS, live in a 850 k properdee and send their kids to yes a private school ! No altruistic use of their funds whatso ever, proper nu lab socialists !
  8. +1 They are the victims of the evil bloated housing manipulating ,hot air banking, wealthy technocrats who are the upper echelons of this country , these poor people,deluded/misled (and part of the problem I know), but they just wanted to get on with their lives rather than play the ridiculous ponzi game ! I know how hard it is to resist peer pressure, my ex wife and in laws gave me a hard time over home ownership in the 80's and I was proved right then ! I just hope that there is a minimum of suffering for the next wave of repo's and their children !
  9. When the state is armed and the people are not , the people live in fear of the state ! when the people are armed, the state lives in fear of the people ! Meaning if you are armed you have liberty if not none ( well done the stereophonics)
  10. I concur, many of my friends are going literally from job to job with no orders long term (building industry) the only people I know with confidence are a couple of nurses and 2 teachers ! Have witnessed an odd trend, houses reducing by first 5 then 10 k and then being taken off- they were no chain, has anyone else seen this on stuff they are watching ?
  11. Hi guys, its a miserable (weather) sunday, but still the news items have only got 21 replies/comments between them ! is no one interested or would they rather debate geo politics ! The house price crash is starting but no ones commenting,I 've been looking in Bristol for a dogs age and they are definitely on the slide, what are other peoples experience where you live ?
  12. There are plenty of houses cheaper than 210K in Bristol, people (sellers and buyers) need to get real here, if you are in a low paid job you arent going to end up in sneyd park and conversely your crappy semi in downend isnt worth the price of a nice little place in the country, I have been watching the local market for years as I am one of the trapped (house paid off-cant afford to go up now Ive got a family !) and the scene in Bristol is schizo ! The employment prospects in Bristol are on the downward trend, aircraft, insurance, banking all downsizing or outsourcing and no replacement jobs other than service or retail = Death spiral . I have spent time in Germany recently and whatever happens they are still the workers in Europe, they know that to be successful you need to make things be it abstract (software etc) or real (robotics). You can argue over your skinny latte as much as you want thats the facts, as I was told in school (good ol mr Adams) in life its a chinese laundry, NO tickee No washee, get off your asses and work not shirk !
  13. Surely the point of this is that whilst our manufacturing base loses yet another client someone else will pick one up ! liberal wets who think that the need goes away just because a UK co is not producing aircraft/guns/bullets/slingshots are very much deluded and in fact are the cause of conflicts, we will have proof very soon when a certain warlike leader dudils his ambition to take over the reins of a vast newly modernised military force (parity with the USA by 2015 as stated in the russian parliament). When some peoples disarm other peoples see that as a opportunity to take what they want or impose their will/doctrines by force !!! And just like the banking crisis it will be the general populace that suffers again !
  14. Could the BTL brigade be waking to the fact that the govt isnt going to fund micky mouse degrees anymore = fewer student renters and getting out before the rest. ( Its happened in Bristol but that was due to private sector/universities tie up on housing, office blocks converted into student flats)
  15. Its about time the middle classes lost their right to a monopoly and suffered the same as the plumbers, waiters and everyone else who have had their wages eroded thanks to the enlargement of the lower base level employment pool, perhaps their perspective might change so that at dinner parties, rather than lauding the cheap polish builder they will be singing the praises of the cheap irish/french/whatever lawyer who did their conveyancing !
  16. Congratulations, its what many on here want and truly deserve(if that is their desire) an affordable decent home !
  17. Hmmm, thought income of 16k and 300k properdy didnt ring true ! \gruaniad fibbing or just stupid journo !
  18. Never thought of it like that, well said, as a footnote I am a denizen of Brizzle and just before xmas took a boat from the centre to temple meads, the empty office space viewed from the river is striking like something from a "survivour" type film, we all know it apart from the sheeple, games up ! too much reliance on services and not enough production in the uk, the credit bubble just masked the end for us ! Anyone know of a cheap isolated farm for sale/grabs !
