Everything posted by inflating

  1. Thanks for your post. To get back to my point, when was 1-day's notice legal? 100 years ago? 300 years ago? Never?
  2. Unless of course he's a secret forum reader and can't wait to halt QE, hike IRs and behave like a sensible man to make the country finally take its necessary medicine and start a real recovery. Stranger things have happened. (Though I won't hold me breath)
  3. A spokesman for Bank of M&D, speaking from his armchair, continued reading his newspaper but commented: "I can't. Ask your mother."
  4. Nie. Tesco are dwarfed by Auchan, Carrefour, Real, and a few others. Other chains have hypermarkets near (ie quarter mile) to Tesco Extras that are probably 20% bigger than Tesco Extras. The problem, if there is one, is that Tesco just ain't cheap enough.
  5. Surprised to read that as Poland's Tesco branches seem busier than before, and they're running another campaign called "Cut!" in Poland too. Queues are definitely lengthier more often these days
  6. Yahoo! look at for and against... http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/buy-to-let-brilliant-money-making-scheme-or-a-path-to-ruin-114029766.html Who are LSL? Have I missed something?
  7. Assuming he meant that house prices will rise, and he didn't mean 'prices will do anything except rise' -- open to debate, if you read it carefully! -- perhaps he means inflation will lift prices in nominal terms or there will be a dash for assets because of inflation fears. Or his guess could be as good as anyone's. What we need, for the sake of savers and to keep a lid on inflation (as well as halt any risk of more HPI madness) is for interest rates to rise now so that by this time next year they're at 5%. Enough already with the crazy economics, it's time for sober people to get back behind the wheel.
  8. She was my girlfriend, that's me in the background replying to a post by Bloo Loo, and I can confirm her pained expression is due to wind following one of my kidney bean curries.
  9. Absolutely shocked to see that. 50p for that rubbish? Is that how much tabloids are now? 50p or 60p a day? They are inflating indeed. I wouldn't pay more than 20p a day for a read on the train, and here in Poland as in the UK, there's the free Metro newspaper for commuters and others too. More actual news in any free-sheet I should wager.
  10. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2332635/Recovery-built-rising-house-prices-OECD-warns-Britain-invest-construction.html?ito=feeds-newsxml The VIs get the message "rising house prices" into the media again, whether fact or fiction.
  11. Homelessness is obviously no joke, but I can think of a few quips here. I'll resist it though
  12. My two cents' worth: Sentence wrote a balanced piece, made all the right points, and yet we all know nobody's going to listen. Or that's how it looks right now. His point about gradual rises now to avoid large increases later seems sensible enough, but if they keep on QEasing then all bets are off.
  13. So, prices are still up in Kingsthorpe, near the uni, etc? Hmm...
  14. Did you say this is Greece or Southend?
  15. Thanks for posting a reply.
  16. What chance do you think in the next 12 months?
