  1. Dear, dear Country Property Group....... With prices so high You'll bleed everyone dry Only mugs would care to inspect 'em So, my kindly advice - Take your ridiculous price And shove it straight up your rectum.
  2. Basically, sold with a 'money back' guarantee. What more could you ask for ???? Except, perhaps, a rather butch 1/2 ounce mens solid silver (.925) chain from Argos,retailing at nearly thirty five quid !!!!! http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/2439837.htm
  3. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-26781324.html Now, if it's CHEAP that you're after, how about this little beauty ?!! 5 BED DETACHED for LESS THAN £110k !!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-41410106.html This flat is for sale by the original owner (confirmed when you click 'Back to Properties' link) who, according to Nethouseprices.com , paid 135,495 on 27/6/08. NOW on sale at 94,499 , a typical current market price for these properties. This represents a loss over OVER 30% in less than 5 years !!!! Although the grasping agent states 'Good investment opportunity' in their blurb, I'm sure the seller might not agree.
  5. And threw half of the gold overboard in an attempt to keep afloat ??

  7. In the 1980's I had the misfortune to live (as a lodger) in one these houses in Market Weighton. Although I was relatively young and naive, I was nevertheless shocked by the absolute shiteness of the house. Apparently, EVERYTHING was subcontracted out, and, it appeared, the lowest tender won. Particular features that I still remember are : i) As soon as you walked into the lounge, the floor 'bounced' as you walked along. I was later told that this was due to the subcontractor skimping on the joists that supported the floor. ii) The crappy soft LBC bricks,many of which under the DPC line had shed their facings during the winter. iii) The wibbly-wobbly plasterboard walls as you went upstairs (dampness during contruction ?). iv) The georgian softwood windows that were already rotten after a few years. v) The flimsy bath that was even more bouncy than the downstairs floor. The washbasin pedestal mounted against the bath panel, causing half of the basin to overhang the bath - otherwise there wouldn't have been room to fit the wc in. vi) Even the drain cover in the garden had 'Made in India' stamped on it ! You would have thought it cheaper to buy a West Midlands product. Perhaps they were used as a form of reducing ballast costs on ships coming to the UK ? v) The absence of flashing between the front door porch roof and the wall. and so on. Perhaps other members have 'fond' memories of this type of house ? PS Merry Christmas to One and All !!!!!
  8. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/new-homes-for-sale/property-24946362.html 'Struggling to get on the Property Ladder ?...............' You'll be struggling to get OFF the property ladder if you buy in this village. It's probably the most depressing, crime-infested dump in the immediate Doncaster area. Oh, and its home to the notorious 'Edlington Devil Brothers'. 'With 12 exciting free gifts to make your house a home !.....' Forget the free gifts - they'll probably be nicked within the first week of moving in. Might I suggest 12 less exciting, but nevertheless more useful free gifts: 1) Steel bars for windows. 2) CCTV system 3) Burglar Alarm 4) Razor Wire for perimeter fencing 5) Rottweiler - Preferably hungry 6) Heavy duty padlocks /) Steel Roller Shutters 8) Smoke Alarms (Don't forget the arsonists!) 9) Baseball Bat (Nails optional) 10) Functioning Firearm and Ammo (Preferably with FAC) 11) Stab-proof Vest (Should you wish to go out) 12) Valium Tablets (Should you wish to stay at home)

  11. It's crazy. Especially as the number of households that don't have either a child, a pet, or a smoker will be very small indeed. Before moving abroad, we ended up having to rent a four bedroomed detached house for just the two of us and the moggy, as at the time there were no other properties available in the area for pet owners.
  12. About 10 years ago my brother-in-law left the UK for a job in Munich, and is still there today, happy as a pig in muck. His knowledge of the German language is pretty crap, although he puts that down to the fact that as so many of the population speak English as a second language, there is little pressure on him to learn more than a basic level of German. (Although I reckon that he's a bit of a lazy git) I've only visited Frankfurt once in recent years. Unfortunately I was staying in the city centre (mainly high-rise finance buildings, etc) so I can't comment on the surrounding area as regards a place to live. All in all, personally, I would give it a go . If it really was that bad, you will hopefully still have the opportunity and means to return to the UK with 'worked overseas' added to your CV. If you decide not to do it, you may not get another chance. Perhaps a google search for ex-pat forums might also be of value in making your decision ?
  13. Ah, but at least the geniune original wc is further complimented by the authentic Victorian/Edwardian heavy urine staining !
