  1. Crikey! Look at it tumbling now. Carnage. EDIT: maybe not - found some support at $12K
  2. Man after my own heart! I'm taking the same route, except my van is a Citroen Relay Recently divorced at 59, I pursuing new directions for 2018, none of which involve paying rent or accumulating debt ever again. I may not even end up living in my van but it will be my insurance policy against finding myself at the mercy of the slavery-system. As you say, most people can't imagine living outside of the plantation and will try to shame anybody who does - more fool them!
  3. Isn't this something like what the National Socialists achieved in Germany in the 1930s? Economist Henry C K Liu writes of Germany's remarkable transformation: The Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, at a time when its economy was in total collapse, with ruinous war-reparation obligations and zero prospects for foreign investment or credit. Yet through an independent monetary policy of sovereign credit and a full-employment public-works program, the Third Reich was able to turn a bankrupt Germany, stripped of overseas colonies it could exploit, into the strongest economy in Europe within four years, even before armament spending began. http://www.webofdebt.com/articles/bankrupt-germany.php Downside being it required an authoritarian government to make it work.
  4. Aiui. Labour has been selling out the workers since long before Blair and co pitched up - I mean since the start. Never met a Leftie in a leadership position that wasn't ultimately out for #1. The Kinnocks are a classic example. At least everybody knows this about the Tories. Check this movie if you can find it: Fame is the spur 1947 From a novel loosely based on the career of Ramsey McDonald http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038520/?mode=desktop&ref_=m_ft_dsk
  5. I vamoosed from London 3 years ago but still have friends there. One couple live in a 2 bed mansion flat near Hampstead Heath - 2 kids in local schools etc. - and have outgrown it. He told me it's currently valued at 700K+ ! Determined to upsize locally, they are now looking at a minimum 1.2 mil to add a bedroom. No words.
  6. i believe males are the world's largest minority, certainly in the developed world. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_sex_ratio
  7. Southern Rail's nasally Indian-accented announcer is beginning to get me down: 'Liddlehampton', 'Dumbridge Wells', 'if you suspect dit, report dit' etc.Why employ an announcer whose first language isn't English??
  8. Ditto. I gather she has a big botty and is married to a rapper; don't want to know any more.
  9. Those who take pleasure in inconveniencing others because they are "in the right". http://www.ericberne.com/games-people-play/now-ive-got-you-you-son-of-a-bitch-nigysob/
