  1. Why must the government "tax tax tax, ban ban ban" everything? if fatties want to eat, so be it. Surely they can save money by cutting all these Government jobsworth nazi's, leaving the rest of us in peace.
  2. haha, that Rightmove Facebook page is looking more bearish than this board at the moment. "Lets be honest! is anyone selling????? or getting veiwers????????" when discussing average selling vs asking prices: "Michael Hughes Sarah if you look at the rightmove asking price index vs the land registry index which is actual sold prices the difference is around £60,000 which means that either vendors are on average accepting offers of £60,000 off their asking prices or more likely that the majority of over priced houses listed on rightmove simply never sell. "
  3. What boom would that be then? The boom that ended over 3 years ago? I think the Mirror bosses must be entering the fear stage by now. Their BTL portfolios must not be shifting well at all. The ship is sinking
  4. after I passed my test at 17 in 2003 I drove around everywhere like a cautious old lady. I am a much more dangerous driver now I have aged to 24 and no longer really care as much.
  5. even the presenters of the BBC newspaper review were laughing at this headline
  6. I'd have done exactly the same as Anjuna. If a lender is so foolish as to carelessly lend hundreds of thousands to someone who can just disappear on a whim, well, they get all the bad fortune they deserve. Muppets. Anyone who wants to work to the bone to pay these silly Hoons off out of some moral bent is, well, a bit looney.
  7. They briefly mentioned this on BBC News 24, mentioning that House Prices have fallen for the 3rd month running. Yet about a month ago, when one of the +0.1% rises became news, they broadcast that house prices rose?
  8. He's a Liberal Arts major. Perhaps that explains why he is one of those many dull, soulless people who see major events float by them as if they happened in some distant country. Goes to show the importance of having a contingency fund (and also in NOT BUYING THINGS YOU CAN'T AFFORD!) People call me "weird" for having a few thousand saved in the bank, instead of spending it on a nicer car/a new wardrobe/a holiday/decorating etc etc. It's as if every job is solid guaranteed. If you get sacked and it really does shatter your world, you're doing something wrong and really should have kept a contingency plan.
  9. Agreed. If the private sector feels it needs to wine and dine prospective clients, fair enough, I don't care. I work in the public sector in IT, and time after time I see IT managers and Administrators buy equipment/contracts not on how fit for purpose it is, but for what freebies they can get out of the deal. I wouldn't care if this went on in the private sector, since the money will only be missed by those at the top (****** 'em) - but when it is taxpayers money stuff like that tends to leave a sour taste in the mouth. One guy bought in £20,000+ worth of switches that were basically identical to those being replaced, to get a Macbook Pro thrown in (which he kept). Now, Lobbying - or any form of exchange where any person, business or organisation gives money to politicians or public sector administrators - in exchange for changes in the law/exemptions from processes - should be made highly illegal. Will it be?
  10. Winchester's unique! The Schools are good, and it's a beautiful place to live! If you saw Winchester you'd understand! Prices will go up forever here! It's like the sunshine that shines out of our arses can turn lead into gold! She says she's prudent yet spends £35,000 over top, and doesn't do any research into the properties prior value at all. She basically admits that the seller saw her coming and took her for as much as they could. Guaranteed she'll be in the news in 3 years time bitching about how her house has lost half of it's value, and how it's a scandal that nobody stopped her buying and that nobody told her what the deal was. It'll all be the Tories fault, mind. And those nasty bears too, for talking down the market.
  11. Will be interesting to see how Cowbridge (the town of the public sector higher-ups) survives all this.
  12. Well, you've really got your **** in your hand, haven't you? What were you? BECTA? QCDA? Prices falling steadily but surely in the Vale of Glamorgan too. Not much seems to be shifting in Cardiff, though you still get the seemingly obligatory houses on the market at peak prices - houses that have been on the market at that price since, well, the peak.
  13. And the Japanese Imperial Palace once cost more than California... we know what happened next
  14. Perhaps a rise is on the cards? Especially if (big if) the Tories gain a majority?
