  1. I still visit both Altrincham and Hale regularly (at least every 10 days) Altrincham high street continues to depress - it is now almost entirely cheap poundshop or charity shop or 6month rent free occupiers, ....the evening life I cannot comment upon The new shopping centre in Hale (HaleBarns) - looks great .....................but still has empty units! ......................the house prices continue to astound!!!!!!!! ................so everything is completely OK now
  2. We bought below asking price but slightly above true value......... since our sale appeared on land registry.... all selling prices have risen!!!!!!!!!!
  3. Banks are now just as greedy as any other seller.........(they no longer accept offers and quite often set a fixed price) we bid on one - and were laughed at over a year later I noticed had gone through land registry at a lower price than our offer mind you it did flood late last year (OH how we laughed!)
  4. This country is currently............. ...........SKINT! ..................anything poular/necessary WILL be taxed to the hilt.......... ....................get used to it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. I voted UKIP because I am sick of how much it costs to be a member..... ................All the stupid oppressive laws we are currently expected to comply with, etc the EU only suits Germany - whose economy would nosedive if the EU ceased to exist In my opinion the EU only suits failed/un-elected politicians who move on to a lucrative "job for life" ....................the EU is pointless unless you are "eastern-European"
  6. It was dead in my polling station............ they actually seemed very surprised I had turned up! ......I turned up with my wife and my own postal vote which I had forgotten to post .....................be quite funny if in my ward someone (UKIP) gets elected by a grand total of,,,,,,,,,,,,, ...........................2 votes
  7. When we were selling last year our estate agent expressed utter disgust over the BBC move! apparently, several "high brow" estate agents in several "desirable" areas were persuaded to "invest" a lot of time and cash into "being geared up" to attend to lots of "celebrity" type BBC employees - the estate agent admitted that his company was out of pocket to the tune of over £10k and sold precisely 1 house which went for less than £200k. He was convinced that most of the BBC was stubbornly refusing to relocate (perhaps proven by certain breakfast TV presenters moving to ITV?)
  8. I am totally utterly f*****g disillusioned with everything political in the UK...... however I accept that farrage is "speaking" for public opinion I work for an Asian owned company - they are ALL voting UKIP!!!!!!!!!! .....................as am I
  9. Its my mother-in-laws 83rd birthday today...... yesterday it cost her £1.09 per oversized card from her postman to gain possession of 7 of her birthday cards i.e. well over £7.00 ........all cards were from elderly relatives Outrageous!
  10. Once you get beyond fifty it seems to be a fact of life female and male.......... tenor lady do a mens version too!!!!!
  11. Plus 1 ............on a rare shopping trip I noted that Marks and Sparks now have their shoes made in................ Cambodia ..................never mind very soon all industry will be in UK because our wages will be the worlds Lowest
  12. Have been a happy North Wales resident for nearly 2 months now weather was/and is surprising warmer than we expected (up until the gale of course) - we still travel back to see other relatives and it is always 2 or 3 degrees colder! living costs are much lower - petrol 3p litre less for example I suspect (getting back on topic) that the estate agents are tightly controlling the market
  13. I predict that house prices in Wales will soon show a significant % price rise! ............lots of home owners are selling up, paying off their mortgage and looking to buy outright ...........Wales is one of the few areas these people can still afford! (ignoring the dreamer sellers by the way) ...........Oh congrats by the way
  14. so I understand the ethos of the existence of this site............... but.................. there is NO differentiation of members........... members = genuine first time buyers............... covered! chaps who need to sell and financially downsize.................. ridiculed??!?? .................discuss please! ...............after all there are more in scenario 2 than scenario 1!!!!!!!
