  1. Flippin eck, everyone here is a shire-county Tory voter! Up North is grim in many places but there are nice spots too and cheap as chips. I'm not counting anomolies like Durham and York.
  2. Unbelievable how much cheaper it is to live outside a capital city. I am strongly considering moving out of Amsterdam. You pay double to basically live in a smaller place in any capital city compared to the 2nd or 3rd biggest elsewhere.
  3. Flawed info my @ss. Lehman were clearly made an example. Unfortunately the huge fallout meant that they bailed out every bank after that. In retrospect, Lehmand should have been bailed out, we all know that, This is obvious. Who is this Pen1s Fuld anyway?
  4. I have a massive lob-on for their misery. After all, they have collectively put me through misery for the last decade. Screw them. I cannot wait for more repossessions. From what you have said, looks like you are one of those to have made money out of pwoperdy too. I detest this. Burn baby burn!
  5. This is interesting. They should open a branch in Holland because people are cheap here. Only thing is, they might see through Poundland's strategy which is to mix up cheap and not so cheap stuff: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/consumertips/7965089/The-real-bargains-to-be-had-at-Poundland-revealed.html btw the pic above is what happens to women when they have kids!
  6. Absolute dumps. A lot like many parts of London, especially, SE. You have immigrants mixing with low class and educated whites. Nobody mixes. Crime is high. No idea who wrote those descriptions but its laughable, reads like an estate agent press release. Here are mine: Shadwell: absolute filthy dump. Guy got killed there when some local youths stopped him getting off the tracks. It's a lot like Bradford in terms of demographic. Classic of case of the multi-cultural experiment failure. Major embarrassment surely when execs hop on the DLR to/from Canary Wharf from the City and have to go through this dump. Nothing redeeming. Fairly run down. Not as bad as some other areas. Even worse than Shadwell. Complete and total dump. Extremely rough area. Probably top 3 or 5 in London. Not far from Milwall.
  7. Where was the house that the chap off here bought? Louisiana?
  8. The boomers are making a net gain on pensions if you compare in with out. Everyone after isn't.
  9. Is this a rant or a question? Can't they use a portaloo or hire one of those boxes that is a full toile tincluding sinks etc.?
  10. From the Graudian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2010/aug/20/bank-of-mum-and-dad-bites-back
  11. I have a friend from round there. And I saw it on one of those pwoperty daytime tv programs. It seems very posh for the north and a nice place to live. I say go for it.
  12. If all you see is cones with a flashing light on top then you miss the point. I think it will be a great success. Just because it's simple doesn't mean it's cr@p.
  13. Anyone here home school their kids? If I have any, I'm seriously considering it. Depending on where I live, I may even teach other kids in the neighborhood too. Even when I was doing my GCSEs and earlier, I was smarter than the teachers and knew how to explain the concepts even better than them. Combine this with teaching kids to think for themselves and take away the bad influences of most schools and you have a winner. The only problem is kids getting social with others. That's why a small group would help.
