  1. I was quite disappointed that Corbyn opted for remain. I wouldn't vote for him, but he has always seemed genuine and principled until he came out for remain. When he was on the last leg someone asked him about nuclear disarmament and he spoke passionately for about a minute. When asked about the EU he said 'mumble mumble remain'.
  2. I was wondering what the odds were during the previous general election and found this article. https://betting.betfair.com/politics/general-politics-betting/general-election-2015-leaders-refuse-to-talk-deals-but-lib-dem-rules-out-coalition-with-tories-200415-204.html Hung parliament: 1/8 Tory majority: 10/1
  3. Hola is generally not recommended anymore http://adios-hola.org/ If you want to use other regions on netflix you should use a paid smart-dns such as unblock-us or uno-telly. It costs about $50 a year.
  4. Bathroom light pull (including switch) in toolstation: 1.42 I now buy everything from toolstation except for the big stuff. The only thing I have bought from B&Q in the last year is paving slabs and CLS.
  5. I just checked my street, which has estimates ranging from 1819 to 1890. The actual year they were all built was 1864.
  6. Fake http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse/2014/11/the-menace-of-memes-how-pictures-can-paint-a-thousand-lies/
  7. Looking at rightmove the going rate for a 2 bed house in that area is about £550. For similar properties I paid £550 from 2005 - 2001, and £525 from 2002 - 2005
  8. Do children really need that many activities? Most evening they play in the garden. An 8 foot trampoline is 100 quid. For instruments buy them a Ukelele and a book for about £30 I take my kids on a cycle ride to the park for a cheap saturday outing. 3 miles there. 1 hour of football, tree climbing and arguing. Picnic 2 hours in massive adventure playground Ice creams 3 miles home, including a stop at playground Total cost: £5.
  9. A NIMBY thread got me thinking about some examples from my local area. My personal favourite is a man who is campaigning to stop the local bus service driving down his road: http://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/10871050.Residents_say_lorries_ban_doesn_t_go_far_enough/
  10. Indeed. A major storm such as we had last week will topple thousands of trees and power lines. It takes time for the trees to be removed and the lines repaired.
  11. A friend of mine is a paramedic in London. He spends a lot of time attending to people who have phoned an ambulance because they want some paracetamol. He has managed to go for weeks on end without attending someone who needs medical attention, let alone emergency care.
  12. £500pw is equivalent to a salary of £34000. Someone with a salary of £34000 is not poor.
  13. They seems to have a lot of trouble with 'content portals'. I often have to wade through masses of ehow and about.com crap before I can find something useful. One topic I searched for today had 5 pointless content free links before wikipedia FFS.
  14. I did this last year and had no problem getting a loan. When I did the calculations it would actually have been cheaper to run a 10 grand balance on the credit card than pay the additional interest that comes with a 90% mortgage.
  15. Do option 1 to lock in the low interest rate over the bulk of your loan. Once you've moved in take out a personal loan to do the renovations. You can borrow 10 grand at 5.1%. This will be much cheaper than either of the other 2 options.
