  1. after more than 150 duplicate "EU referendum" e-petitions have been dis guarded it looks like this one is *the* one to sign up to. https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/356/signature/new It is the simplest web form you have ever seen.
  2. are we going to see a major event come midnight tonight: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financialcrisis/8584442/UK-banks-abandon-eurozone-over-Greek-default-fears.html http://www.zerohedge.com/article/ceasefire-between-germany-and-ecb-has-expired-greek-compromise-plan-now-table http://www.zerohedge.com/article/crisis-hour-europe-may-withhold-half-%E2%82%AC12-billion-greek-aid-no-emergency-meeting-decision-rea or is it just more of the same usual crap?
  3. This weeks gems: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/jun/14/government-scraps-weekly-bin-collections http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-stories/2011/06/18/mirror-forces-government-u-turn-on-plan-to-let-private-firms-use-nhs-facilities-115875-23208789/ http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/leading-articles/leading-article-another-policy-goes-to-waste-2297365.html http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/2011/06/18/another-government-u-turn-this-time-on-soft-sentences-for-paedophiles-115875-23208951/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/universityeducation/8571550/Cuts-in-foreign-students-scaled-back.html I honestly thought this one was going to be on next weeks U-turn round up.... maybe it still will again http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/jun/18/pensions-reform-unions-public-sector-treasury
  4. And woosh another good idea get the U-Turn treatment.... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2002830/Now-retreat-benefits-Ministers-signal-ditch-26-000-cap-claims.html Which was the whole point of it... Consider for a moment that Labour had won the election, what would be different?

  6. I thought about writing this thread 6 months ago, as a record of the U-Turns... better late than never. http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/environment/cameron_u_turn_in_thetford_forest_sell_off_plan_1_804370 http://www.communitycare.co.uk/blogs/service-user-voice/2011/03/u-turn-on-disability-living-allowance-overtaken-by-penny-pinching-over-mobility-component.html http://www.marklazarowicz.org.uk/government-u-turn-on-housing-benefit-cut-for-long-term-unemploye http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1378910/David-Camerons-latest-U-turn-decides-wear-tails-royal-wedding.html http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23864864-coalition-chaos-after-david-cameron-u-turn-on-free-school-milk.do http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/208589/David-Cameron-U-turn-denies-Britain-EU-referendum http://www.politicalreboot.co.uk/2010/12/camerons-u-turn-on-married-couples.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/8225711/Literary-heavyweights-force-free-books-U-turn.html http://labour-uncut.co.uk/2011/01/15/cameron-u-turn-on-ipsa-will-push-the-tory-fodder-over-the-edge/ http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/dec/20/u-turn-michael-gove-school-sport-partnership http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1224428/Tories-U-turn-Lisbon-Treaty-Cameron-drops-pledge-referendum.html http://www.shieldsgazette.com/news/local-news/betrayed_by_u_turn_on_knife_crime_law_1_3009833 http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/dec/27/david-cameron-hunting-ban-vote http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/politics/article-23897975-david-cameron-u-turn-over-vanity-staff-on-public-payroll.do http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1355004/British-Legion-accuses-David-Cameron-U-turn-pledge-war-heroes.html http://www.prweek.com/news/rss/1040864/Governments-immigration-cap-U-turn-show-Cameron-listener/ http://www.hmforces.co.uk/news/articles/6849-david-camerons-army-u-turn http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1297098/David-Cameron-orders-U-turn-taxpayer-funding-prison-parties.html http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/2011/05/10/taxpayers-foot-the-bill-for-david-cameron-s-u-turn-on-cabinet-meetings-oustide-london-115875-23119506/ http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010/may/24/cameron-conservatives-compromise-1922-committee http://www.newsrt.co.uk/news/pm-u-turn-on-plan-to-let-rich-buy-places-at-uni-148040.html http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/view/187041/David-Cameron-s-u-turn-on-migrants/David-Cameron-s-u-turn-on-migrants http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/2011/05/20/government-u-turn-on-coastguard-closures-gives-holyhead-hope-55578-28728619/ http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/notw/news/880674/Cameron-shelves-fund-to-support-companies-using-green-technology.html http://www.thinkbaby.co.uk/pregnancy-news/david-cameron-breaks-extra-midwives-pledge/3518.html http://waeshael.wordpress.com/2011/02/10/cameron-a-u-turn-on-multi-culturism/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/8331781/Government-accused-of-new-U-turn-over-NHS-reform.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthnews/8512631/Government-accused-of-u-turn-on-ban-on-wild-animals-in-circuses.html http://waugh.standard.co.uk/2010/08/cams-uturn-on-council-homes-for-life.html http://www.general-election-2010.co.uk/pm-david-cameron-turns-his-back-on-free-over-60s-bus-pass-election-promise.html http://thethirdestate.net/2011/01/nick-clegg-in-control-orders-u-turn/ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1283435/Cameron-U-turn-rape-case-anonymity-apply-suspects-charged.html http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/191462/Tories-U-turn-on-200m-cancer-drugs-fund http://liberalconspiracy.org/2011/05/04/is-the-government-doing-a-u-turn-on-selling-off-public-services/ Some direct HPC turns you might have missed: http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2010/nov/28/housing-benefit-cap-postponed-2012 http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/2011/02/19/100-000-council-homes-at-risk-after-tory-u-turn-115875-22933488/ http://www.examiner.co.uk/views-and-blogs/reader-letters/2011/04/26/a-strange-u-turn-on-green-belt-land-86081-28582490/ Google for "Cameron u-turn" shows 19 million hits. Wow.
  7. To start with it was a little comical, put down to over eager "new boys" over-promising before they fully understood the situation. Then it became embarrassing and now it is plain funny. I emailed my Tory MP on Thursday with a selection from that day: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2001195/MPs-demand-U-turn-women-s-pensions-say-raising-qualifying-age-deeply-unfair.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/8563757/Kenneth-Clarke-about-turn-David-Cameron-in-total-mess-over-prison-policy.html http://www.pharmatimes.com/Article/11-06-09/Cameron_delivers_U-turn_on_NHS_reforms.aspx less than 36 hours later we have: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2002505/Yet-Coalition-U-turn-This-time-education-Gove-confirms-400m-cuts-policy-review.html http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/news/article.html?in_article_id=536642&in_page_id=2&position=moretopstories http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/8569722/Coalition-abandons-plans-for-weekly-bin-rounds.html David Cameron was in PR, he must know that this makes them look like a joke.
  8. GREAT FIND CATSICK. "Pervasive House Price Increases: This house price escalation has occurred generally independent from varying demand levels. For example, the Median Multiple has more than doubled in Adelaide, the slowest growing major market in Australia. Liverpool and Glasgow, which have been among the slowest growing metropolitan areas of the United Kingdom, exhibit median multiples that have escalated at least two thirds."
  9. Penny dropping finally? http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-13707399.html and I think they had it on for 12 months before that with another agent...
  10. Nice Kock! http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-12404508.html classic main photo.
  11. Take a look at the internals.... play spot the radiator/power point/damp... http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-31005488.html can anyone beat it?
  12. My God. That is a leading indicator that you can put money on.
  13. on the flip side, what would happen if someone with a house that won't sell sees another house, like theirs, sell because they accepted a -20% offer? Or if the agents keeps telling them that they have received 5+ offers but the best is -20%. Surely it will get to them eventually. Then the domino effect will benefit others.
