  1. You should probably tell count of nowhere (or **** of nowhere as im starting to feel he should be called)....he'd probably argue thats far too much for public sector "leeches"....
  2. Just so i can be clear....as i am only a "public sector leech" according to **** of nowhere...isn't there the small subject of a couple of financial companies bleeding public funds dry recently? Don't think there were any topics bleeting on about public sector 2 years ago...
  3. Yep, now the Lisbon Treaty's a done deal, Liz and the other European Royals will be firmly in the sights of these scum. Never been a massive royalist but i'd prefer them to what's happening to our constitution.....at least they give a sh*t about the country and not just getting paybacks for sliding britain into Europe. Phew!...feel better after that!!
  4. Getting back to original post, i'm thinking of making up some kind of legal contract and carrying a copy round with me for these occasions. Contract will insist on data protection stuff and not giving details to any third party, with threats of hell and brimstone if his happens (and some hefty charges). Pretty sure no one will insist if a say that signing this contract is conditional to me giving them my details.
  5. Exactly...right now. Everyone makes a choice of whether they work in public or private sector, so each to their own to be honest. Im a public sector worker, but im a senior nurse so not exactly the mandarin you guys are digging at. I earn an okay salary, as ive been in the job for a few years but i've never begrudged private sector salaries in the past or bonuses etc as i know i chose my job. This just gets stirred up, probably with the pushing of certain stats to the press by government press officers when things are tough and public sector spending is primed for getting cut.....divide and conquer as the saying goes.
  6. Great, more people getting sacrificed for the mistakes of the private sector. Roll on another winter of discontent...
  7. Surely it's no different to the "my friend bought a flat for 150K last week now its worth 300k" stories which have got us into this mess into the first place....works both ways. Sorry - meant to link to Telometers post
  8. I'm getting pretty sick of these 'studies'. If i was to publish something like this in my field of work i'd get laughed out of the country and probably struck off. You could just as easily argue that a large downturn of house prices/economy within two decades leads to the creation of talented sportspeople....
  9. What, instead of 223?....in that case i change my view completely. Crash over eh lads and lasses....
  10. Surely the bulls need to be asking some serious questions of themselves if they have to resort to the use of a David Smith article as proof of their argument? Thought even Rinoa would have known better than that.... ummm maybe not.
  11. And i was about the post, possibly the most entertaining!! Best ive read for ages....quite nice to have a break from andykn, hamish etc harp on about hitting the bottom...although having seen TMTs sister, maybe the bottom should be explored more closely...
  12. Slightly off topic - i notice that Lord Carter will now be returning to business after the release of his digital britain report (news today)....i wonder what business he'll be going into?...
  13. Also i wonder whether the fact that interest rates are already low so early into the cycle, compared to high interest rates in previous crashes, explains the early sucker rally, whereas in previous cycles the rally was further down the curve.
  14. You know, i have asked this question many many times and none of the bulls seem to confirm they are interested in bagging some "property bargains"...why is this? I have come to the conclusion that even in the most deranged of bull minds, there is a small part of the brain whispering a little piece of common sense "don't buy" it whispers quietly to the decision making part of the brain "the bottom is yet to come" and subtly mentions words such as "cat" "bounce" "trap" "rally" "dead" and "sucker" etc. Obviously in this unconscious rationalising process, the mouth and typing fingers of the bull are bypassed... I'm afraid due to the absence of response from any bull on the subject, this is the best i can do.
  15. And here follows the usual silence from the bulls following a perfectly reasonable question on their views...
  16. "your situation", what? in a secure job earning above the average earnings (lets not get into an argument as to which stats that involves please) with no debt. If i'm having to consider going to Housing Corporation for help in finding a home to buy, surely something is very very wrong. Or do you think that is healthy? If you're going on about shared ownership etc, then you've just proved my point better than i have. I'll try and ignore the condescending tone of your post. EDIT- Not that i am considering the above
  17. So, as someone who works long hours saving lives (literally) every working day, the fact that i cant afford a house and have been unable to due to horrific inflated house prices for years, i'm a slacker and i'm wrong to blame both poorly regulated financial systems and irresponsible lenders? Is that what you're saying?
  18. So to pose another 'tricky' question (which i have asked often and got little reply), if the 2007 prices were the 'correct' prices, why aren't all the bulls on this forum out there snapping up all these property bargains that are out there and will be a great investment as we are 'obviously' at the bottom of the market. Now's the time to buy guys, hey you keep saying it often enough!! I think it's called putting your money where your mouth is.
  19. Rinoa posting something ridiculous....why the surprise? My only surprise is they (sibley, rinoa and co) don't ever seem to get bored of it!
  20. I loved how the woman interviewing Merryn kept trying to pull a slightly disbelieving face every time Merryn made an absolutely spot on, logical observation, ruining the credibility of her own comments in the process.
