  1. Bloody brilliant news! Just need unemployment to stop rising (I know it's slowed dramatically) and it'll be happy days again.
  2. Surprising you might say. Some comments I've read blame black magic, witchcraft or insanity. It's none of the above. People are focusing on the future and not the past three months news. It's old hat, not interesting. As I've been saying since the summer people have pots and pots of money they've been sitting on while they're waiting to see what happens. Banks have been saying they have a massive positive balance in peoples accounts for months. All that money will come flooding back into the economy this Christmas as people treat themselves in the pre-Christmas sales just before the 2.5%
  3. It's just more speculation not really based on anything. The facts are that the country is becoming economically stable following two years of chaos. It's over now for another 15-20 years.
  4. Some were speculating that it would. You know who you are, even though you've changed your tune now to save face. The house price crash and recession are well and truly over until the next time. Perhaps you'll all be here in another 20 years ready to gloat that you eventually got it right. I won't be. So with house prices increasing back to their natural levels, the banks on a even keel, the stock markets at record levels, unemployment figures falling and a massive Christmas boost to the economy now that nobody's worried about job security anymore - what's on the cards for HPC'ers for next
  5. Oh hai Bloo, things not getting worse after the holidays anymore I see? You've changed your tune.
  6. I doubt this will allowed to be posted due to the 'regulation' that we're not allowed to post anything positive, but here goes anyway: Clearly we're out of the woods now regarding any form of house price crash. I've seen you desperately trying to find scraps of bad news and posting the links in here with obligatory comments suggesting something bad is about to happen, but it's time to face facts once and for all. You all seem to have forgotten that house prices have been falling since November 2007, to March 2009. Seventeen months of losses and still you think there's more to come, a seco
  7. House prices will fall soon because there's no money around, people can't get that much credit, banks won't lend it, they have to FALL... blah... blah... blah
  8. What do you mean 'true internationalist'? One who owns property in more than one country, living mainly in sunny place but having to work for long periods of time in the other, where it's not perhaps quite as nice?
  9. Ahh, waking up to good old sadistic pleasure in others suffering. Can't beat this place for that. I love the smell of Envy in the morning.
  10. "Bercy, qui table sur un recul du produit interieur brut (PIB) de 3% en 2009, n'a toutefois pas l'intention de reviser cette prevision dans l'immediat." Bercy, who expects a decline in gross domestic product of 3% in 2009, did not intend to revise this forecast in the immediate future. 2009 - we're in month 8. GDP fell 1.2% in Q4 2008/2009. The 0.3% rise took everyone by surprise. If I were them I'd keep my forecast at -0.5% for Q3 + Q4.
  11. It's because I have meaningful and worthy contributions to make. Quite unlike you it seems... GDP up, recession over, FTSE nudging 4800, house prices going back to normal the last few months, UK back into positive territory by the end of next month. Happy days. There's nothing to talk about really
  12. No I haven't seen that before. About jolly time though! I feel better after seeing that. Faith in the BBC restored somewhat.
  13. Agreed, you'll only find people talking pleasure in other peoples misery here. Still at least they've all been proven completely and utterly wrong in their apocalyptic predictions
  14. On the back of the news that France and Germany are enjoying economic growth again with the UK to follow later this year, do you think the FTSE will top 4800 today? Up, up and up!
  15. Things are on the up again! Time for big red UPWARD pointing BBC arrows and captions behind the presenters?
  16. Never mind, there's always The Onion to fall back on for your source of 'real' economic news if the leading press doesn't report the FACTS.
  17. Hmm... I wonder what the outcome will be? Tin foil at the ready!
  18. You're not a house builder I take it? As you seem to be blissfully unaware we've experienced a bit of a recession of late. No houses have been built for eighteen months. Where's everyone gonna live? huh?
  19. I suspect they will go up as they have been. There's nowhere to live in the UK. Look at London, lack of supply means the the prices go up as the people with the money bid higher for the premium property. Same thing will happen when people realise there isn't in fact any houses in the UK.
  20. Up 23 on the back of the employment statistics today at 4694. Time for new crystal balls perhaps?
  21. Agreed, bleeding obvious we're now in positive territory. Sept figures will show further rises in GDP from June.
  22. 59 million still employed, too old or too young in other words...
  23. Interesting topic. Even more interesting that nobody really has any sensible answer. Most people around here want to see a price crash so they can get something for nothing. Greed - there's your answer.
