  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.

  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.thisislond
  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
  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. 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.
  13. Was expected to be an increase from last month (52 -> 53) Was in fact almost as bad as at the depts of Crunch1. http://www.forexfactory.com/calendar.php?do=geteventinfo&day=2010-12-17&c=2
  14. this is just the effect of kicking the can down the road... now we are approaching the can again, though it is full of lead and gunpowder now.
  15. Once that goes it will form a very solid resistance level. Of course, assuming the U-Tory Party doesn't do away with Stamp Duty. Anyone else seeing this? http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-27900190.html http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-27535597.html http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-25405066.html http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-16621551.html http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-28032451.html looking back over these, I am left depressed at the awfulness of the "average" 3/4 semi in this cou
  16. Another embargo beating post mon amis. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/news/files/2010/12/december-2010.pdf Shame it isn't quite -ve for the y/y
  17. This is getting *ridiculous*. Has anything actually been changed since Labour? Is anyone keeping a list of the major U-Turns, climbdowns & back-tracks? It must be 20+ in 6 months.
  18. £123K!!!! If she is really worth £123k (in Staffs, so more like £200k in London) I as a tax payer DO NOT want her wasting her very rare talents in government. I want her out in the real world, generating tax income, real employment and wealth for the country, Sadly, she is probably only worth £40k in the real world.
  19. I am saddened that this is happening at the extremes, but how many others are sitting by themselves in huge 4 bedders worth >£300k freezing to death because they can't afford to heat it. SELL THE F'ING THING AND DOWNSIZE.
  20. How did it go so wrong... When did NHS paramedics start thinking they could afford foreign holiday homes? what next, new supercars? Wag/celebrity culture will be the up doing of all of us.
