  1. I think Rodney Trotter described this policy best back in the 1980s: "Pull the ladder up Jack and sod the rest".
  2. How does one do this? Asking for a friend...
  3. Apparently it's Bristol: http://www.thedailybeast.com/galleries/2013/04/22/the-city-bristol.html#d22b9661-494a-4d56-ad8b-1b1cdd819e1c
  4. I noticed that on the topic of interest rates Carney said: In other words: "It really is different this time!".
  5. BBC Business News ticker also says: "The ECB has also introduced negative interest rates for deposits from banks. It is now minus 0.10%." We live in strange times...
  6. Whatever happened to propertysnake.co.uk? Brilliant site for tracking price falls, back when there were such things...
  7. I thought this was an interesting post from Rev. Richard Coles: In other words mainstream politicians have no-one to blame for the rise of UKIP et al. but their cowardly selves.
  8. Uh... his speech is amazing! He honestly actually sounds like a reasonable human being. http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/publications/Documents/speeches/2014/speech731.pdf What's he up to?
  9. I have just been to Sainsbury's in East Dulwich where Hob Nobs are on special offer... a 262g packet of dark or milk chocolate for just £1.
  10. We think of 1 income being the historic normal, 2 incomes being the current normal, but surely >2 is theoretically possible... maybe it's only a matter of time before children are expected to contribute in some way...
  11. I'm not so sure about the link between immigration and house prices... Hasn't Germany had a pretty similar immigration experience to us, while somehow avoiding runaway HPI?
  12. Maybe a more effective individual protest would be to hang around outside the BoE until Carney arrives or leaves, make to walk past him and then thump him in the head as hard as possible.
  13. Carney really is an absolute C U Next Tues. What's interesting though is to read the comments on the article... almost every one of them could have come from HPC. The public sentiment re house prices has definitely shifted.
  14. Who exactly said there'd be hordes arriving on day 1? All I've seen today is random leftie refutations of this apparent straw man, never with a citation.
