  1. renting til I die

    Mortgage rates are still ludicrously low

    I really haven't bothered looking. Which ones are the best.... I mean worst!

    Indeed. Also, to the OP, ask your family and friends about rental yields! What return do they get from that big lump of equity that they call a home!

    Join the club! I know what it feels like to have all your close family think you are an idiot for not buying a house. However, my investments (mainly equities) are now getting to the point where they almost pay for my rent, so was I such a fool? Note that Rich Dad Poor Dad says that homes are not an investment, not because they can't yield a positive return but because they have a negative effect on cashflow! How much extra cash have I been able to invest 'because' I have been renting for the past 8 years? Anyway, I am almost at the point where I don't care where house prices go. I may well rent until I die! After all, a house is just an asset that pays your rent for you... Btw, the next time you are told that rent is dead money. Ask them what they understand as dead money? (this can lead to an interesting discussion, as people waste so much money on crap!) and how much of the rent you pay is dead money? IF your rent was only £50 per week is that dead money? £100, £200. Where is the line? People really don't see how much money owning a home costs! Renting can be better than owning a home even without a mortgage!

    This is the only reason you should ever buy a home! Home should NEVER be looked at as an investment, even serious BTL LLs known this!

    Diane Abbot for Prime minister

    ROFL 😂 I still remember the LBC interview, when she wasn't sure if the money set aside by the Labour budget for the police would pay for 30000 or 300000 extra offices (all to work on 'hate' crime no doubt)!

    Errr.... any prove of that theory? I think that is one reason the left wing media should love her! *flower, hugs and lollypops*

    Oh, you need to be more WOKE. Didn't you hear, black people can't be racist -ist -ist!

    Prime Minister Corbyn

    As bad as TM is, I agree that GB was worst PM ever!

    That proves it!
  10. Errr..? I don't remember a referendum on PR?
  11. And if leave won again? You would accept it?
  12. I haven't watched it yet but why do you think that? Is it because he doesn't agree with you and thinks businesses will be fine in a 'no deal' scenario? I have to admit, from the times I have heard him, he is far more upbeat than I could ever be!
  13. Get yourself WOKE.... you can't be racist to white people..🙄 Btw. The people who do think using Gammon is ok, please stop!
  14. To be fair, that is the first time that I have seen him attack the person and as much as I dislike Mark Carney, I was disappointed that JRM would do this. Hopefully it will not become commonplace.
