  1. Here's the BBC's story on this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-16499636 This sentence at the end: "The government has already signalled its intention to make tenants who earn at least £100,000 a year pay market rates" What The FECK Why are these people in council housing in the first place? And why "at least £100,000". That's a massive amount of money to earn in a year and well above the national average. Surely the cut off should be far less than that? The welfare state was set up as a safety net. Now I am not naive and knew people have been taking the piss for years. But unless I am not understanding it correctly, this is utterly disgusting that a high earner should be in a council property. It sickens me. Its all wrong.
  2. Reddit's average readership are in the main aged between 15-25 . They get it. http://i.imgur.com/cBPiV.png Says it all really. I really wonder if the older generation portrayed really understand just how much resentment is building up... Eventually, something has got to give. Edit to add the comments section. Interesting reading. http://www.reddit.com/r/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu/comments/lxima/generation_rage/
  3. And the cost: (from Wiki) Prices As of 2010, a 328 sq ft (30.5 m2) studio (Ocean Studio 661) has a list price of USD $600,000. Ocean Residence 1006 (2 bedroom, 2.5 bath) list price USD $2,950,000. The World Suite 1108/1110 list price USD $13,500,000. Monthly homeowner dues range from $20,000 per month (for the smaller units) and up, and cover fuel, crew, maintenance and a meal allowance for the owner. Meh!! Edit to add - what exactly is "2.5 bath"?
  4. Not true. I am looking in Essex - Uttlesford area so Saffron Walden and villages around like Arkesden, Clavering, Widdington, etc etc. http://www.edp24.co.uk/lifestyle/uttlesford_is_uk_s_third_best_can_it_stay_that_way_1_871619 Really lovely area. Rural and attractive, quiet, safe, good train connections and good schools. Essex is a relatively large county and its not all chavvy towns, white shoes and ankle chains. Just saying!
  5. Thank you so much for that link! Good stuff.
  6. http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/9009262.WANSTEAD__House_prices_could_drop_if_parking_permits_introduced/ I mean, honestly.
  7. Yes, its not too far away from where I am now. Very pretty, lots of thatched cottages and a good pub. But this place just looks a bit silly to me, like something from Trumpton!
  8. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-18633024.html Its in a nice village I know, but still. I guess if narrow is your thing, its fabulous! Built on someone's driveway maybe?
  9. Well, they've had the thread deleted. The "advice" to drop the price clearly wasn't to their liking.
  10. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=1458399 They bought it in 2006 to do it up and now can't sell. They also have £20,000 in debt and selling it will clear that debt. Here is the house. It has its own website. http://highlandhousebythesea.com/ Is MEW poster someone from here?
  11. Here's a cartoon from Japan showing how the nuclear reactor problem is being explained to younger children...
  12. All very well basing it on 2 people working - just don't go having any children.
  13. One for the Axe (minster)? They've got a Wilt on...
  14. The house we like has this on the details:. AGENT's NOTE: Plans have been passed to erect a garage. The council are unaware of any such planning permission however as we rang them to ask about it. Its good to do a bit of research. Husband ringing the agents now to find out what's going on. Someone's telling porkies somewhere... Christ, I hate all of the bull$hit.
