  1. The thing austrianec, adarmo et al, if my estate agent was reducing my property by a third over such a relatively short space of time (see Cambridge example) , I would be questioning his skill set....perhaps this is what people are now doing with the likes of using Purple Bricks?
  2. Buy some gold and bury it in the woods somewhere...but don't forget to make a treasure map! :))))
  3. So the UCU has agreed for their members to contribute an additional 10% to their pensions whilst the employers agree to contribute an additional 7%...I assume this 7% will come from the savings they made from their 14 year `pension holiday` that was partly responsible for the deficit?...If this wasn't bad enough, they also agreed to drop the DB ceiling from £55K down to £45K. So in effect they have agreed a salary and pension cut in one agreement!...now I know why people don't join the union!

  5. And do you blame the EE?...I blame the lazy electorate who are more interested in Eastenders plot or how their football team are doing than kicking their local MP up the ar#e!
  6. Suresh, which just goes to show what a govt/housebuilder scam htb is, an artificial way to ensure that prices were held higt and their mates got what they wanted.
  7. If pounds tanks against dollar, why are people talking about buying treasuries rather than cash/Forex?
  8. You'll never get the spot price with coinage as there are minting costs to add.
  9. Interesting that you posted Danny, as I have followed from the beginning and was going to summarize and ask others to confirm that I have understood correctly. So here goes: 1.Companies are overleveraged with debt, their cash flow that services this is drying up AND interest rates are starting to rise (a double whammy), and so they fail...this is the deflation. 2. Next we will have reinflation where CB will QE to provide stimulus, but this time the money will go on infrastructure projects rather than propping up economy/banks via cheap credit. 3. This will then create inflation as the extra money "produced" by the CB means a £ as it was before is no longer worth the same (as there are twice as many £s in the system). 4. The suggestion/reason be in cash rather than equities in the short to mid term is twofold, one you don't know who is going to fail in equities, and two once equities have dropped you can buy the survivors, with asset rich/essentials for infrastructure/non~consumer being the best option as they will be stimulated by the new CB spending. 5. The $ treasuries are suggested as one, a hedge against the £ due to the $ still being the fiat used for international purchasing and so maintaining its strength over the £, AND treasuries over cash as they are more secure I.e the USA unlike your bank would never default. Have I got this right DB?...anything I have missed?
  10. Take a look at a website called The Monevator, they have lots of their own info and links to economics research that answer these questions.
  11. Look on a lot of the internet dating sites and it's obvious....sperm donor for those women who wanted both a career and now realize they want a family (or to possess a child) as well....those who aren't bothered about children still apparently want a meal ticket despite espousing equality!
  12. "The only reform the UK benefits need is to move an element of contribution based and time limit" You mean like the rest of Europe then...sounds like a great idea!...no wonder they are making it so difficult for the UK gravy train to leave!
  13. We were ` told` that it couldn't be allowed to happen, but what do you financially aware members of HPC think would have really happened if the Govt had allowed free-market economics to have taken place, and not bailed out the banks?
  14. I don't know what is the most crazy, the £90 or the £900!...interesting how The Mirror has chosen to focus on both economical ends of the migrant equation, yet succeeds to portray BOTH in a negative light...must be by chance surely?!
