  2. Seems that aim is not on the agenda. It's all about making us pay through the nose to keep the banks in profits forever.
  3. He's got something of the estage agent about him.
  4. As usual may I suggest that people write to the minister who is proposing this: [email protected] I wrote a letter along these lines:
  5. Anyone going to contact the BBC for this programme?
  6. Panorama is shite, they always have an agenda that they want to get across and find the people to match the story. It would be good though if some HPC'ers bent their ear though wouldn't it? They're looking for Joe Bloggs, the man in the street to put across their views about house buying. The more people they get who want prices to fall rather than large mortgages from part-nationalised banks, the better.
  7. I heard it on the grapevine... "Panorama is interested in hearing from would-be homebuyers with good credit ratings who are working and have recently been turned down for mortgage applications, particulary with RBS and Lloyds. Please contact [email protected]" The BBC is after people who have been turned down by RBS and Lloyds and wants to have a go at them for not propping up house prices. Will HPC'ers please contact [email protected] to tell her the problem is high house prices not part-nationalised banks.

  9. It's worth writing to him I think. [email protected] [email protected] His statement show a lack of understanding of the range of issues surrounding population increase. Where are all of those people gong to live? Does he give a damn or is he just courting the votes of immigrants?
  10. Will these new savings bonds start to drain money out of the housing market in the near future?
  11. See this place http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sa...y-25687292.html I almost bought this last December for 200K. It was in a right state with a cracked wall backing onto a commercial property and a serious damp problem. My surveyor advised me not to buy the place. The rear end of this property is an old workshop converted into living accommodation. The rooms in this extension were in a poor state, a corridor not wide enough for an average bloke to walk down without rubbing shoulders against the walls and very low ceiling. Single skin brickwork, odd wooden cladding with condensation problems and the crack I mentioned before. Some opportunist did buy it though and did it up - to what standard who can know? Looking at it now, it seems the place has had a lick of paint and some cover up jobs done. The kitchen units look like they've been positioned to cover up the crack. A new laminate floor has been put in over the damp floor.
  12. https://share-dealing.iwebsharedealing.co.u...elcomelogin.asp I recommend IWeb.
  13. This exercise is all about advertising her new web site: http://tepilo.com/. She's still looking for ways to cash in.
  14. Yes that's right, Sarah Beeny will answer your questions about the property market, or will she? http://www.chataboutmoney.co.uk/flash/webc...asp?EventID=158
  15. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/finance...lour-blind.html They love him in Labour circles as he called for interest cuts first. Now he's predicting no recovery for some time. I wonder how that grabs Balls and Brown?
  16. Blanchflower on the recovery... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/finance...lour-blind.html
  17. The ADVFN free bulletin board is the place to go for sound investment advice.
  18. Joing ADVFN and look at the Lloyds forums there. http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=quote&s...p;cb=1245152951 Youll get all sorts of advice from people there, either ramping or deramping the shares. After that you can make your mind up.
  19. My advice was serious. He should sell his house and put it all into LLOY. It can only go up from here. The government have picked a winner IMHO and the taxpayer can't lose. OK, not 100% serious, but that's one viewpoint on investing in LLOY.

  21. Why not sell a house and put a couple of £100K in. LLOY will probably gain 100% - 300% in the next 2-3 years. Edit: DYOR, IMHO.
