  1. Let's hope so. I sold all my investments in November, certain that the markets would crash along with the Euro troubles, and have "lost" a notional 10% or so since. I'm itching to invest again, but need to see more obvious value first.
  2. It's not an original point but I'll make it again. A house price crash / dip / correction -- call it what you will depending on where you live -- is inevitable and has always been inevitable. When I was a kid, I recall house prices plummeting in the 1970s. I remember the bubble in the 1980s, and the crash that stretched well into the 90s. Then another bubble, to be followed, just like night follows day, by a crash. Here is a rock-solid prediction for you that I 100% guarantee will come true -- there will, at some point in the future, once the economic mess is finally mopped up, be another boo
  3. It's selectively right, but mainly wrong. Which was my point.
  4. "The forum" predicts disaster of every kind, every day, and has done for at least the 6 or so years I've been dipping into it. The law of averages says that just occasionally, some people must sometime guess right. The huge majority of HPC posters, of all political colours, are wrong most of the time. The site attracts speculative bullshitters and misanthropic drones. If you filter out the mass of inaccurate crap, you can fool yourself into thinking that "the forum" is some sort of misunderstood oracle.
  5. Sorry tallguy, but I still think he's a bit of a c**t.
  6. The answer is no, though I did find myself queuing up in the canteen behind Jeremy Clarkson one lunchtime. What's this thing about meeting my partner all about??.
  7. Sorry, NWS2 - what's your point? Come on. Be daring. Jump in and say something.
  8. Indeed, and the "people that fund it" are the licence-payers, and I genuinely believe that is where this media outlet is most sympathetic. You say -- The "news" tends to be selective however" Um, yes, all news is selective. Every single news organisation has to select and prioritise news for broadcast or publication. The question is, how does the BBC fare compared with Sky, Fox News, ITV, Daily Mail, Guardian, Telegraph, and so on? My answer to that is "pretty good". Other people have different views. MrPin -- what is your view? Be a bit more strident, please.
  9. But you are just stating "this is a non-story" as though you are the bloody King and that everything you say is the law. Byron -- let me put you straight on something. You are not the King, and people are allowed to disagree with you. I am not the King either, and people are most definitely encouraged to disagree with me. So. So please don't just pronounce that "Coulson is a non story," Coulson is a BIG story. We have a guy who has been the Prime Minister's Chief Spin Doctor, resigning from his post. He resigns because he was in charge of a newspaper which is embroiled in a scandal that y
  10. Touchy! I ask you again -- demonised by whom? Let me answer for you -- Demonised by our own anti-BBC bias. If a leftie is applauded on Question Time, this is evidence of BBC left-wing bias. If a leftie is NOT applauded on Question Time, this is filtered out of your memory. It never happened. If a rightie is NOT applauded on Question Time, this is evidence of BBC left-wing bias. If a rightie is applauded on Question Time, this is filtered out of your memory. It never happened.
  11. ???? I can assure you that I am watching ALL of my colleagues' daytime output. (Note the apostrophe.)
  12. Are you a northerner by any chance? I can just imagine your remark being sleepily intoned by someone from Bratford.
  13. No it isn't. If you think a more rational. less bigotted discussion might be mutually beneficial, do please respond. Thank you.
