  1. It obviously hasn't hit home or most people not worried about it and carrying on as normal amongst a postive attitude and lots of corona virus jokes anytime anyone says they have a cold or cough
  2. How can they cut rates if inflation is rising rapidly in the first place due to supply chain problems in China?
  3. Out in around Barnsley Friday and Saturday night.... pub absolutely packed out. Standing room only
  4. An estate agent in Liverpool was trying to sell me a leasehold house with a 'peppercorn rent'. In Kirkby. Has anyone been there? It's a dump. The town centre is like Beirut. Even the Mc Donalds drive thru is like a war zone. They are supposed to be regenerating it. The council have bought up the entire town centre. Judging by the sense of the Loony Labour council in its current achievements of continuous very high speed bumps on all main roads (2 mph or you damage your car), it will be like polishing a turd
  5. Important information The figures given are an indication based on last known sale prices and house price inflation figures. They are not a substitute for a professional valuation and should not be used as a basis on which to sell or buy a property. Our advisers can help you arrange a valuation or survey with a professional surveyor if require so please call us if you need help.
  6. I'm sure the same its getting hotter vs it's getting cooler arguements will continue into 2020
  7. Above, agree. Climate change? whatever Mark Carney was slagging off pension fund managers invested in fossil fuels the other day, what a prat, the sooner he goes the better. Not only has he blown up our housing market, he is not neutral politically making stupid comments like these and even getting involved in brexit with his made up reports against it that proved to be pure fiction.
  8. Used this for years. I also notice that many sellers houses on the market are at values far detached from what LR values say they should be. They seems to vary a lot area to area, street to street and even the same houses on the same street, if you look at http://houseprices.io I wish you a happy new year with this gem I just found https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-61345212.html content speaks for itself and really is quite annoying
  9. Hugely wasteful in what way? Global travel of goods, services and people are good things. Happy new year
  10. You couldn't make it up, talk about find out the obvious. How much are these fools paid to finally come up with that?
  11. I guess people have been too busy with xmas to take any notice of this report
  12. Country and government office region Price Monthly change Annual change England £248,939 -0.7% 0.5% Northern Ireland (Quarter 3 - 2019) £139,951 2.3% 4.0% Scotland £153,692 -0.9% 1.4% Wales £166,245 0.7% 3.3% East Midlands £194,134 -0.7% 1.3% East of England £293,928 -0.1% 0.3% London £472,232 -1.7% -1.6% North East £129,360 -2.3% -1.1% North West £166,134 -0.6% 1.4% South East £323,438 -0.8% -0.3% South West £258,372 -0.8% 0.6% West Midlands £198,345 -1.6% 0.2% Yorkshire and The Humber £166,904 0.9% 3.2%
  13. Read the story, it was nothing to do with brexit. Crashed his car showing off to female now brain damaged, while he was high on cocaine. What a a nasty piece of work, guy should still be in jail.
  14. Oh well, unless those planes suddenly prove reliable then Ryanair is dust, even then, would people risk flying on them?
  15. Human rights acts to go , that would be very good. About time. All it did was give rights to people who don't qualify as humans. Most abused law going, did more harm than good.
  16. Oh dear. Ryanair may be cheap but nobody is going to want to fly on one of those planes. They should cancel the orders and buy other reliable safe planes instead. Don't they run the small airbus plane normally?
  17. What about Northampton or northants council didn't they go bust a few years back?
  18. It's not though. Spanish tax is high for Brits who are Spanish residents, even retired. If they own property more so. To be autonomo it's bloody expensive even before you earn a cent. And this is during EU membership. (What EU benefits does the UK have?) Salaries are low there, and living costs high. You need residency to have access to the spanish healthcare. You can only roll up with your EHIC while visiting /holiday. Even then they are not keen on treating you. You can only stay for a period of 90 days on tourist entry. I think the anti brexit protesters have never actually tried staying in the EU outside UK and are mourning percieved EU benefits that don't actually exist
  19. Lisa Nandy has big boobs so that might help her. Mind you, it didn't help Jo Swinson. As for Boris, no because I think we are 2 years away from any recession, and his election and Brexit is going to boost the economy
  20. So whats going to happen when these shopping centres fail to attract tenants (shops) or the retail rental market gets so low that the council can no longer service it's loan? Taxpayers take the hit? First they do help to buy underwriting the housing market, now they are underwriting the retail property market. They are even building shopping centres in some places where site owners have not proceeded with the plans. I guess that is because they are not sure of the return on the investment. As it is government backed it is sure to go over budget and take far longer than planned. Bottomless pit of money. It's council that killed off high streets with their high parking charges. I hope they aren't planning on doing the same with their own investments or should that be our investments. This is like something out of Corbyns socialist fantasies. Are these Tory councils doing this or Labour, surely must be. All this at a time when commerical property funds are falling I'm glad I moved my pension out of that while I could.
  21. Not going to happen. Brexit is only positive for house prices and the economy
  22. That's because they were. The country was bankrupt when Labout left office, like it always is when Labour leave office.
