  1. Erm...the link no longer takes us to the house in question... I presume an elite team of estate agent cyber-police have been monitoring this site!
  2. A packet of crisps when the € collapses...
  3. Erm...where did I say that there is a conspiracy? I simply pointed out that if somebody really wanted to know the minutia of how the UUJ report is put together, as it involves public bodies, they can always be asked under FoI.
  4. Maybe someone should put in a Freedom of Information request (to NIHE or UUJ as FoI would only relate to them) asking for the criteria for selection of estate agents, verification of prices given etc...that is, if it hasn't been done already...
  5. I'm interested in the Euro aspect simply from the point of view of wanting to see the light at the end of the tunnel of the current crisis. As long as uncertainty prevails over its future then it's hard to see from a global economy perspective how things will be put right (not that such an end state theoretically exists) and what time-frame we might be talking about. As things currently stand its seems a bit like we're staring into a big black hole (I'm speaking metaphorically and not about my own position, which is fine, thank you very much ). All these other things you refer to, housing benefit etc., are highly relevant and seem a bit more certain than the big existentialist crisis overshadowing it all and, in my opinion, preventing us from having a clue about when and how things will improve. At such times it's very hard to see were general confidence will emerge over the economy. Just a thought.
  6. So, is despair before or after we know what's happening to the Euro? I suspect things will be much clearer by the summer, although not necessarily in a way that offers much hope for the immediate future.
  7. Don't know if it belongs here but an interesting article nonetheless on Sean Quinn from the Big Apple Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/08/business/sean-quinn-and-irelands-boom-and-bust.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=quinn&st=cse
  8. I'd also add academics and local economic commentators/economists. How many saw it coming, admitted their poor judgement and culpability?
  9. Some interesting comparative graphs from The Telegraph for the UK economy - doesn't look too promising for Norn Iron...http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/8857272/Two-speed-Britain-in-graphs.html?image=2
  10. Erm...a Halloween horror story? http://www.desewing.com/iceberg/
  11. Perhaps they own large chunks of Monaghan and have found a richer seam of gold?
  12. An (ex) estate agent who's obviously now got too much time on his hands... http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/local-national/northern-ireland/belfast-rugby-streaker-shows-off-down-under-16049982.html
  13. Prices still going South... http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2011/0915/breaking49.html
  14. Full story here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/borrowing/mortgages/8748761/1.7m-home-owners-face-negative-equity.html
  15. Would this be College Court Central by any chance? http://www.rte.ie/news/2011/0824/belfast.html
