  1. Anyone see this? http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01d94rm I only caught the tail end, and it seemed that it might have been reasonably insightful. I'd be interested to know if it was worth watching... I fancy buying a new TV and this might provide just the right amount of blood boiling :-).
  2. It really is depressing that all our politicians balls deep in "property". They have absolutely no interest in trying to solve the root cause of a significant proportion of the social problems in Britain, due to their obvious vested interest.
  3. I have no idea what this means, any ideas?: WrongMove Looking at the satelite image, it doesn't really look like somewhere I would want to live... £175k for that in a decent place in town with no crazy air space reservations, ok, but for that?
  4. Wanted to bump this, as there is already another request for suggestions, if anyone is interested: http://www.editorscode.org.uk/downloads/press_releases/ECPC-pr-2012code-review.pdf I have just replied to the last email I received from Ian Beales, dated 24th Jan, who said he would be back in touch "once the committee has had an opportunity to consider the points you raise". I wonder if there will be any amendments this year based on our suggestions.
  5. Someone in my office keeps saying "nuh-think", rather than correctly pronouncing "nothing". A phrase I hate is a room being described as a good, great, nice (or similar) "Space".
  6. Have you tried simply typing the address into google? I tried with my small village street, and the first hit on google (mobile) was a small google map with full postcode. Google is you friend. :-)
  7. Ahh yes, the old "deposit requirements are unrealistic" argument. It is so depressing that there is never any mention of the decade of loose lending leading to massive unsustainable price inflation being the root cause.
  8. Those who abuse the system are the problem, and are ruining it for the genuine claimants with their greed. The change is more likely for social engineering purposes, to attempt to stop this being a lifestyle choice. I'm not sure how I feel about it morally, but then I'm able bodied, working, a taxpayer, and the amount of families that choose not to work is plain to see. I do feel we should hate the game, and not the player... but how do you change this one without affecting people who aren't cheating the system?
  9. You can't have a fondue bourguignonne without chips...
  10. What always baffles me is where the £1.3bn added value comes from... or more likely who is losing £1.3bn.
  11. So they are becoming even more unaffordable then? That`s good news...
  12. I think you'll find the proper term is "feature wall". It is an evil disease, spread through too many BBC daytime DIY programmes.
  13. I wouldn't say that is lavish at all. Mrs the.ciscokid and I would like the house we are renting. Small village, large garden, large kitchen (big enough for a table that can sit 4 - 6 people - we spend all our time in there), double garage with utility, driveway, great sized loft, 3 bed (reasonable sizes). There is a pretty good living room, dining room, office/ 4th bed, and a conservatory as well. It is also very well constructed (because it was not built by modern day building development companies. The only thing I would change is that we have oil heating. There is no gas in the village, so if I owned the place, I would invest in some alternative energy for the house. The owner paid £500k for it in 2007, so if any of the others which haven't been looked after quite so well come up, we would probably be looking to pay around £350 - £400 for one. The chances of that are slim though. The trick for us has been to gtfo of London, and find a location where there are jobs that require our skills. So far so good.
  14. Or contracting (as it can then be tax deductable).
  15. Handing them non-jobs isn't really going to help that much either is it.
