  1. That is spectacular. On the other hand life is for living. I had a girlfriend 7 years younger than me. Wanted to quit her lawyer job to be a yoga instructor. Mental! I wasn't keen and we split up. New girl is 2 years younger and also mental. Less counselling than the other but more meds. Bottom line.... they're all mental so just pick the hottest one you can put up with and enjoy.
  2. FWIW often they just make noise about this and the market reacts as though they did something. Beautiful thing this forward guidance. Eventually though there really is a wolf and it's raise our get eaten. For now though all that matters is that the people believe rates will rise if they need to.
  3. Fingers crossed she's also fine whichever one she gets.
  4. Yeah that's right. Leavers denying a choice to others... there's a big wide world outside of that useless EU. Perhaps you'd rather still be in there and waiting for your jab? That 'Brexshit' vaccine is likely the one to save the planet and certainly the one for vaccine diplomacy. How do you expect to get your magnificent EUSSR vaccine into sub Saharan Africa? Or even vast swathes of India? Lol.
  5. Good to know. I'm feeling like most people are fine but you just hear about those who get a rough time afterwards. I had a round of travel boosters last year (how naive lol) and had a dull achy arm and feeling of jusy not 100%. Wouldn't have registered it other than thinking it must have been relating to the jabs. Certainly better than a round of typhoid or diphtheria though.
  6. I'm sure all three are up nationally but yet here we are. Need forced sellers... where are they? What needs to happen to create them? Fwiw I'm expecting higher than target inflation in the short term but it'll fall back in a couple of years so no major action would be taken by BoE.
  7. Ah yes. Though I'd have to say the statistics show higher efficacy and lower incidence of side effects with pfizer but basically it seems no different to ibuprofen or paracetamol for your hangover.
  8. Oh no, not Tom off Twitter.... Spoke to my GP sisinlaw yesterday about my vaccine concerns. She got her first dose while heavily pregnant and basically said you could very well be fine if and when you catch covid but then went on to talk about covid patients having amputations etc. Doing nothing has more risk for most people than not. After a wobble last week about thinking i might not get jabbed because of possible side effects I'm back into the get jabbed camp and I'm not fussed about which one i get either. I'd encourage everyone to spend more time reading about how crap covid is and compare those likely side effects with a vaccine's vanishingly small risks. Tom doesn't seem at all bad for someone recovering from a heart attack.
  9. Is it documented anywhere that the intention of the lifelong interest was to be 18 months ish? If she's on the hook up maintain the place might be worth trying to find things she needs to do.... expensive things..... disruptive things. Not a nice situation but if it were me I'd make her my new hobby. But I'm a bit of a c u next Tuesday tbh.
  10. Amazing! Finance cones down to commission plans. If oily boy doesn't get paid enough for shifting the car for cash he's going to hold out for a finance buyer. My view would be to get a discount in return for finance and then pay it off anyway. Oily boy gets his dosh and effectively shares a bit of it with you.
  11. Nice one Sausage. Pleased you're happy with your decision. I have loved doing all the work to my place and then you love it even more afterwards. Is a great feeling. Congrats on the purchase and on the LL victory 👍🏻
  12. The thing about history is there's always more of it. Upon twice dissolving the Reichstag in 1932, Hindenburg ultimately agreed to appoint Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in January 1933 when the Nazis won a plurality in the November elections. In response to the Reichstag Fire allegedly committed by Marinus van der Lubbe, he approved the Reichstag Fire Decree in February 1933 which suspended various civil liberties. Later in March, he signed the Enabling Act of 1933 which gave Hitler's regime emergency powers. After Hindenburg died the following year, Hitler combined the Presidency with his office as Chancellor before proceeding to declare himself Führer und Reichskanzler des deutschen Volkes (i.e. "Leader and Reich Chancellor of the German People") and transform Germany into a totalitarian state. In other words Hitler moved to seize total power for himself upon the death of the head of state whom had no successor. Any comparison to today is just laughable. Those rights of freedom of assembly and association were suspended for good reason and restrictions are being retired. Further, the new bill actually enshrines those rights. There is a road map out of these restrictions which are imposed to prevent a viral Armageddon. Nobody will ever know for sure how many would have died without lockdown but just a quick look at Brazil tells me enough. It's sort of funny that the paranoia crew are able to spin legislation intended to protect people into something that took millions of lives away from people.
  13. Cool so i missed it........ Where is it? The government applies noise limits and sweets out what behaviour is acceptable. All this does is move the burden from the police of trying to prove the protestors causing the problem were told to disperse (current law) to the protestors knowing their behaviour is not acceptable in advance of their actions (new law). Absolutely nowhere is it the case that the right to protest is removed nor that the government can pick and choose one protest over another.
  14. Ok, so for that to happen a protest must be taking place so there is no threat to the right to protest. I guess it's like saying the introduction of speed limits are banning people from driving when all they're doing is introducing some restrictions to make everyone better off. The point of a protest isn't to cause a nuisance it's to raise awareness and signal you are against something. I have taken a look at the bill and absolutely nowhere does it say the police or government or home secretary can decide who gets to protest. I must have missed it. Could you take another pass at it and post the wording?
  15. We are aligned... but then we've not taken the Hippocratic oath..... that's the issue i think. Ask are equal under the nhs
  16. The most efficient way to cut carbon emissions is a cap and trade system and credits system. If i build a new home out of wood to sequester carbon and replant those trees then I've sort of done the world a favour so i get a credit, but maybe the cement or steel plant can't actually do without dirty energy for right now so they get a tax bill. Implementation is a faff though.
  17. Correction, not on a Concorde.
  18. I like Clarkson. My favourite fact is he punched Piers Morgan on Concorde.
  19. I have a family member in their mid thirties who is a GP. Consensus is that if it wasn't for the clogging up of hospital beds they'd have let it run.
  20. Me or the kid in the article? I do not work for the government. China going cashless won't have an impact on my employment?
  21. My mortgage is 345k with 30 years to run. I pay £1,240 a month. Someone in their 20s would qualify for a 35 or 40 yr mortgage. At 180k you are talking 500 a month. You can afford to service that on a minimum wage job!!!
  22. Words are zero calories, Monsieur. Put as many words in there as you can 😀.
  23. The smart ones either now work to borrow as much as they can so they can buy their own gaff or take your view and just figure it ain't worth it. So many people i know that had excellent education (Marlborough college etc) just working ad hoc, self employed doing bare minimum. On the other hand there's a good group of friends (accountants and lawyers) who are fortunate enough to be able to earn very well for a 'standard' (50 hours week) full time job. But even on those nice salaries i think they're about as well off as my degreeless father working in lower management of the civil service 30 years ago housing wise. I could barely afford to buy my parents house from them as a director in a tech firm with no dependents while my father bought it in early 1990s on one salary with a wife and four kids to support. Different times i guess.
