  1. I'm very much into the ideas presented here but won't the goal for lots of people be to ultimately cash out back to fiat and buy overpriced bricks and mortar rather than some kind of quasi bring the system to its knees. Is it a punt on prices continuing their upward projectory or something deeper akin to changing the absolutely rotten corrupt status quo.
  2. O Brien starting to connect the dots
  3. I feel the same in Hounslow and increasingly feltham. not a nice feeling.
  4. I think you are wrong calling Hounslow sh!tty, its much worse, but apart from that spot on.
  5. Labour stronghold here, voted UKIP My girlfriend who lives in a conservative stronghold area is also voting UKIP. She is 28 and did tell me she felt a bit sheepish telling friends she would vote for UKIP, its perverse to me as i think you should be more sheepish admitting to voting LIBLABCON
  6. I gave up a while back, im not interested in buying a place near the area i currently reside as any nice areas are a joke price. I toy with the idea of relocation , either this country or abroad, for the time being im ok where i am. I did save pretty hard in my younger years ( now 40) so had a nice cushion of being able to drop to part time work and enjoy having plenty of free time , Ive made a decision to try and minimise paying into the system as much as possible, no income tax , no tv tax. I could save money on living costs further by going HMO again ( did this for 2 years) and its a possiblity as essentially my labour is worthless against housing costs and a very generous benefit system.
  7. Those who dont qualify for housing benefit are at a massive disadvantage to those that do qualify, in fact the disadvantage is so big now that i see friends and family that are in receipt of housing benefit have a superior living space to reside in than i, as i have to pay my own rent. I really dont believe you could make up a more perverse situation of housing in this country if you tried
  8. This. My girlfriend and i often joke that its getting increasingly hard to name anyone we know that isnt on benefits in one way or another. Ancedotal but a relative had a particular axe to grind against another relative who is a single unemployed mother because of the free money and free housing she gets, some months later this relative is complaining that due to a promotion at work they will lose there working tax child credits. There we have it in a nutshell. I think that the benefit problem is magnified by those on benefits that can basically live rent free and those that work and earn too much to claim benefits ( or have savings) are expected to pay silly money for rent/mortgage out of their already taxed salary. Everything always comes back to that in this country, house prices too high, rents too high, council tax too high, elec/gas too high,petrol too high etc etc , everything else is a distraction/divisive and doesnt anyone who benefits from all of the above like it that way
  9. Hi council dweller, would be interested to hear what you find out.
  10. Is this any different to current depravation of capital rules. In my current situation i have low income but savings, if i didnt have savings i would be eligible for housing benefit on the private rental i reside in, i too could blow the lot on a ferrari and then claim housing benefit, however surely i would be told to do one by the benefits gang Im running down my savings slowly but surely ,purely as my outgoings are way higher than incomings with no particular aim in mind other than not work that much and not pay income tax.
  11. Ive seen this a lot in hounslow, indian family only etc Being pragmatic i guess it saves time wasting and to be fair a decent amount of the indigenous population of these areas are junkies, alcholics and most likely unemployable. It truly is a dire area. I have to live in these areas as im priced out of the private rentals in the area i grew up, the joy of paying your own way in this country means a standard of living lower than most of the benefit/council housed relatives and friends i know.
  12. private renter here, guess I can go **** myself as im not special enough to rent subsidised secure tenure housing. as ever government picking winners and losers in the housing lottery via tax payers money.
  13. Biggest problem is council tax itself, mine is £804 a year and thats with the 25% single person discount applied, wtf am i paying that much for exactly?
  14. The truth is the truth regardless of you finding it anti immigration.
  15. Maybe some of the pakistanis went on to become taxi drivers in rotherham, i guess the natives best stop moaning about that too
  16. I listen to smooth radio, fairly calming music, then she disturbs that calm with her inane mutterings about what her children did at school etc, like anyone of sound mind could care less
  17. This can never happen, the governement of the day will not do it under the pretense of "but what about the poor peasants" whilst picking up most of the wasted billions in housing benefit themselves or to their buddies. Quite fantastic ruse. Of course if you pay for your own housing your taxed on your income to fund this ruse then double f***** by paying way over the odds for your own shelter.
  18. Poor old auntie beeb, stop picking on them you anti BBC trolls If only the BBC would stop demanding money with menace to pump propaganda into my front room. The fact you can get banged up for not paying to have propaganda pumped into your front room is the icing on the BBC cake. Anyone that defends this piece of s*** needs their head tested , hows that for inbuilt bias and bigotry
  19. Dont fund the BBC , its really that simple. If you fund these people your part of the problem.
