  1. Do you think that in their attempts to save the damage to the economy they have actually made it worse? Over a month ago Saddo Khan told everyone that the London Underground is safe and there is no need not to use it and he is still doing so. I remember thinking at the time, Undeground, in London... where there are lots of foreigners flying in and out, first place to get it no thanks. Yesterday he advised not to use it, like that should have been the advice ages ago. Printing QE/ Bond buying / rate cuts, will not help anyway and are they actually making the economy worse by doing this?
  2. For foreign buyers or those in €€ - UK houses have become 15% cheaper over the past few weeks
  3. Anyone else absolutely hate auctions? As soon as another buyer comes along, that cheap house gets bidded up to a stupid level. I just walk at the thought of them, some even have non refundable fees that go to the agent. ("Modern mehtod of auction") Load of rubbish
  4. Prince Harry is a total embrassment to Britain, and now the male human race
  5. You know when this first reared its head in Jan, I thought hmm might cause a few probs.Never expected this! Why oh why didn't I switch out my pension into cash....
  6. This country is pathetic. China built hospitals, well functional enough for the purpose in days. We can't do that. The UK is terrible at stuff like this. They have to have 20 meetings first. Or hold an enquiry costing loads and taking months telling us what we all knew and could have told them for free in the first place. Take roads. It takes 3-4 years to put a new lane in on the M1 and call it a 'smart motorway'. China / Hong Kong build whole new motorways in less than 6 months. With roadworks they are there for a month, could have been done in 2 days, but no its there for a months and 99% of time nobody is there working. Pathetic
  7. I take the view that people like that always get found out eventually if it isn't that time it will be another, and that karma will get them. Not for me to get involved why risk any aggro to yourself
  8. I did hear on radio 1 that all those in the same house must self isolate together with the effected person. It does make you wonder if it will now get harder to find work. Good luck
  9. Anyone else think it strange to tax you and then give the money back through this Citizens Income.? A better plan would be to tax everyone less in the first place. People will get used to this CI payment if they are working and then it will go towards rent and mortgage, cost of living budgets etc. Then when they are falling on hard times with no job it won't be enough to cover their outgoings. People have no restraint and spend most of not all of what money thay have. They will then be crying for more benefits when they lose their jobs. Not convinced.
  10. I heard the arguement for this tax but what effect will it have on house prices and home owners present and future? Regarding CI again if all it will pay for is a HMO then is it a low amount based across the UK , or are they just living in London?
  11. If you sign for your NI stamp only there you should get help with job hunting from the staff
  12. You may sell it to me on that basis as long as it is not means tested at all. I've seen plenty of people lately that are lost causes. No way will they ever get work, they have been on drink/drugs too long and can barely string a sentance together that makes any sense. They need help, not more benefits. I agree that all these working tax credits should be scrapped and so should child tax credits since all it does is encourage people to make a career out of dropping sprogs. All paid for by us.
  13. No we have Boris because May was useless as PM and barely won the election before. Brexit is the best thing for this country and we will thrive while the EU suffers.
  14. It wasn't the 'brexit budget'. It was the Boris 'spend loads more than we should while rates are low budget'. He looks and sounds more and more left wing and I don't like it. If people get the bail outs and support they are asking for, on top of the increase for the NHS to get us through this, we must be looking at a Trillion more. Easily. If rates go up we are defaulting. Maybe we best buy gold. Greece anyone?
  15. All well and good, but whose 'other peoples money' pays for these handouts so you can be bone idle all your life? It sounds like a massive expansion of the welfare state. Only a few working people will have massive tax (ScottBeard). Sounds like something Corbyn had a wet dream about
  16. Forgive me guys as I am a Gold amateur, but I see that in the 2008 crisis, the gold price did not really go up until 2 years after (2010). I am thinking of getting a bit of Gold or silver I suppose as a token as we all say we should have to diversify. Are gold miner shares a worthy alternative?
  17. So why bother working at all then, just stay on citizens income from 18 til death. Unless someone explains to me how it can work all I see is Venezuela.
  18. I don't know.... it may happen faster than that. Remember during the 80s crash the media and VI's were reporting that all was well with housing and no crash could happen, for years before it did crash when all the signs were there...
  19. A citizens income, how much and how does the country afford it? Sounds socialist to me
  20. You can't have it both ways. We have all been here for years wishing for something to pop the bubble, and now it's here you are complaining its not fair
  21. Everybody here wants a house price crash, unless it's their job or income on the line, eh
  22. Hats off to you for starting a business. If you go bankrupt at least you will be able to claim benefits. Starting a business is a risky affair, if it goes well you are sorted, if it doesn't, well that is your risk. You can't expect every failed business to be bailed out otherwise there is no moral hazard and nothing to seperate the good businesses from the zombie inefficiently run ones. I sincerely hope you won't go bankrupt though.
