  1. For the purposes of the LTA, DB pensions are valued at 20x the pension, so an £800k pot = £40k pension.
  2. He only kept the Debt to GDP ratio down by using off balance sheet financing. Put PFI into your figures.
  3. Now include PFI in your calculations. Brown was a fraud. Remember when he changed the definition of when the business cycle started in order to be able to fiddle his borrowing numbers?
  4. Tax on imputed rent used to be charged under schedule A for income tax. Abolished int eh 1960s I think.
  5. If your name was Nick Tart, wouldn't you leave it out as well?
  6. It was the Kaupthing office prior to the Icelandic crash and then Singer afterwards
  7. It's where the London Maypole used to be IIRC, so it's under the shaft of the maypole...
  8. It's about a mile away from Birmingham airport
  9. That's unfair. There's a lot more to it than just converting... I had to fill in a form and pay £12 for mine.
  10. It's not a boiler room scam, just a poorly mishandled placing on behalf of the company's advisers. Accidentally triggering a Rule 9 mandatory offer under the Takeover Code is quite amusing though.
  11. I think you'll find it's realistically priced. It says so on the Rightmove blurb, so it must be true.
  12. You can see the sign saying 73a on the left edge of the house. No.73 appears to be the 2/3 of the building to the right of the front door, while 73a is the part to the left. This would also fit with the garden photo which has a small walled garden for 73A and a larger L-shaped garden for no.73.
  13. What I was getting at is that there is a deficit. Taxes don't cover spending and haven't for a long time. So setting up a new mansion tax may alter all sorts of things as per your post, but what it won't do is to lead to a straight equivalent reduction in a different tax.
  14. SSTC on 10 December according to Rightmove / Property Bee...
  15. Taxes collected via mansion tax means very slightly less government borrowing. It won't lead to any reduction in any other taxes unless there are significant changes in the country's economic circumstances.
  16. You need a 45% drop to get back to 2008/9 prices (81/181). An 80% drop would take you back to mid-90s prices
  17. I think I actually laughed out loud when I saw it.
  18. This one might amuse you: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/new-homes-for-sale/property-45809122.html New build, first sold Nov 2013 for £450k, now on the market for £580k asking price. It's been on the market for a month now..any bets on how long until the first price cut?
  19. They sold some earlier this year and are winding down invovlement apparently... http://www.cityam.com/1409908339/more-sign-london-house-price-woes-foxtons-share-price-falls-bc-partners-halves-stake[/url]
