  1. this lifts the lid totally for me. the mpc (in my opinion of course!) are, in the main, mere political placements. i no longer believe in the MPC as the fabulous brave new world independent commitee. it is like the so called 'war on terror', an utter political farce to hide a very dirty truth indeed. this is the last time i will post or visit HPC, it is causing me so much anxiety that it is just affecting my everyday life. i take back all those comments i made about believing that inflation was not apparent and that CPI was a reasonable way of measuring broad-based price pressures. what a fool! so long and thanks for all the useful info HPC, i may never buy a house, period; this whole oil thing has taken the fight out of me and i would never dare get into debt for anything - i'm off to try and live my life for today instead of getting involved in all this [email protected]
  2. this is such an obvious stunt it is embarrasing!!! king is worried about CPI and inflation right now - i.e two years after the fact from his rate setting decisions. inflation is largely controlled by belief in what inflation is or will be. king is trying to spook people into spending a bit less for a while (cutting demand) so that he might be spared a spike above 3% in the next few months after which he expects things to settle back down.
  3. to those who don't want to 'pay for other peoples mistakes' i think it is correct that families (one or two parent) should be given non-discretionary help towards raising children. if you want a pension (regardless of which scheme you invest) you need workers tomorrow to pay it for you. rasing kids is necessary for the future of us all and is a hell of a commitment! either raise children yourself (and be party to it) or pay someone else to do all the work for you. isn't that how most things work anyway?
  4. i think the vast supply of coal thing is a bit of a myth. we aren't using that much of it right now - it's filthy! if we were to ramp up consumption to somehow offset oil shortage, i think the reserves would start to be revised sharply.
  5. our learned friend is indeed correct. it is the banks' capital that determines their lending capacity, not deposits. very enlightening read. talks about alsorts including the difference between government IOU's (i.e cash) and how bank money (in your account) is NOT the same thing! http://wfhummel.cnchost.com/index.html
  6. and i think it's got rising damp.
  7. good lord. and what about the presenters themselves? they 'earn' hundreds of thousands. is natasha (apart from once being very pretty) so special a personality? it's just insane. it would be interesting to find out what presenters and readers earn in other broadcasting organisations. (ITV and C4 don't count as they too have a finger in that great pie aka "the unique way in which the BBC is funded". now there's a euphamism if ever i saw one f'in robbery.
  8. i have also reached the conclusion that TV in general is a pile of sh!t. the only thing i watch now is corrie and bremner bird and fortune. not worth 120 quid a year. for that i could buy the dvd series of bb and f and a shed load more besides, buy a year subscription to the amazon dvd rental... my tv is starting to die, it is B+W for about 10 mins before the colour comes back. i can tell you now, i will never buy another television. i will quit tv for good when the first of the following happens: my tv dies, or they switch off the analogue signal, effectively making me have to pay a lot more for something i am already unhappy with. call me a luddite. dvd's and cinema are far better value for money. no need for a telly.
  9. the estate agent tried to bump up my rent yesterday. he collapsed so easily i was speechless. i didn't even try! i simply said that we didn't want to renew. so we get another 12 months at same rent. relevancy: well, i reckon i drew some strength from this site to stand firm against landlords and vendors alike. thanks hpc
