  1. yeah! f*** countryside! F***ing trees, think they're so much better than us! I'm gonna go out now and uproot one of those c***s and pour concrete down its f***ing hole, the f***ing f***s! You need countryside for food to live, we should all give a f*** about countryside. What's so hard to understand? Anyway, thanks you've reminded me why I normally lurk on forums...you just end up trying to say your point over and over for 15 pages, lifes too short.
  2. wow, you are literally insane, I never said any of that, you've just made it all up. FYI, I don't own a house, I don't own a car, and I live in Lincolnshire (in the middle of town with no rural views) so I probably wouldn't use the M4 even if I did, but keep on building on your fantasy you have about me. How about I abuse kids? Torture kittens? I bet I do, I must do to disagree with your viewpoint. Continuous population growth is sh*tting on our environment, and it's completely unsustainable. Therefore I think it's a bad idea. That's why I said what I said, and I thought pretty much explained it in my previous posts on this thread.
  3. It's spelt 'you're'. As for what you said about land use in this country, you do realise we eat the wheat don't you, and we kind of need food to live? And that we don't produce enough food to meet our domestic food demands as it is, even with so much of our country being intensively farmed? But yeah, who the **ck cares about our most fertile land being built on with a million houses. watch this sometime if you need to understand how unsustainable it all is: Or you could just call me a retard again and make yourself feel all big and clever. Ignorance is bliss etc.
  4. -0.4% vs +0.2% expected. Total sales volume decreased by 0.4 per cent between November and December. Sales volume for predominantly non-food stores decreased by 0.9 per cent. Sales volume for non-specialised stores (which includes department stores) decreased by 4.3 per cent, the largest decrease for this sector since February 1994 (-4.8 per cent). Sales volume for predominantly food stores increased by 0.1 per cent. http://www.statistics.gov.uk/cci/nugget.asp?id=256
  5. yeah, destroying our countryside in the process, that would be brilliant...those barrett houses are so much nicer looking than nature It's sad how disconnected we've become with the land and how little respect we have for it as a consequence - we need it much more than it needs us and I'm sure one day we'll have it confirmed for us. To quote a Cree Indian: Only when the last tree is cut; only when the last river is polluted; only when the last fish is caught; only then will they realize that you cannot eat money
  6. http://uk.reuters.com/article/businessNews...C00262820071108 LONDON (Reuters) - House prices fell 0.5 percent in October, marking a second straight month of decline, according to HBOS Halifax house price survey on Thursday. That took the annual three-month rate of house price inflation to 8.9 percent from 10.7 percent and the average house price to 197,248 pounds. Analysts had forecast a rise of 0.5 percent rise on the month and 9.5 percent on the year. Halifax reported house prices fell 0.6 percent in September, their firstly monthly decline this year.
  7. I've heard this sort of thing so much it's becoming a bit boring. Just because some people earn that sort of money, doesn't change the fact that the vast majority don't and that the average salary for London is around £35k a year. Anyway Bobbins good luck with spending £650,000 on a terraced house
  8. to be fair, it does look like its in a Quality Street.
  9. "In one troubled condo project in southeast Denver, some one-bedroom units are being sold in foreclosure for as little as $18,000 to $20,000, while they sold for $110,000 to $120,000 at their peak, said Rob Murphy, a broker with RE/MAX Alliance." http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/real...5040563,00.html Amazing how quickly things can unravel once they get going...so much for needing 15% interest rates too, America's are only 0.5% higher than ours.
  10. http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/portal/pa...amp;zone=detail Not 100% sure but think this is the right data, altho suprised the French earn less than the EU average. Anyway, in 2003 France was at €28,847 and the UK at €40,553, so the French earn around 75% of what we do. The EU average was €33,088, around 80% of the UK's.
  11. The average salary here is nowhere near twice the average of the continent. On a weighted index (for GDP per person, not salary but similar sort of thing) where 100 is the average, the UK is at 116.6 http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/pls/porta.../d/da/daa/eb011
  12. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml.../18/nipod18.xml Good article from The Telegraph about how the under 35s are getting screwed basically. Found this bit pretty interesting: "The report estimates that the net income of a two-income couple with no children has decreased by 3.4 per cent since 1997." And houses cost just a bit more than back then
  13. Prices were just as high in the past, relative to wages, i had to work 175 hours a week, doing 3 jobs, to afford my first home - a converted attic in a crackden. The only reason people complain about prices today is they expect their first place to be an 8 bedroom mansion.
  14. that graph is nothing short of mind blowing ...any chance it can be added to the front page?
  15. according to the BBC 1,425,000 people have migrated here in the last 2 years alone, and thats just the legal ones, god knows how many illegals are here too....anyone who doesnt want immigration restrictions needs shooting. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/5274476.stm
