  1. Indeed my friend, indeed. A curious tale for sure.
  2. Or a £648,000 clear post-tax profit (£30,857 per annum in PHREE MUNNY) Any onomatopoeic shrieks of pain would surely still be reserved for the MUG PUNTERS who didn't BORROW UP TO THEIR LIMIT to gain a FOOT ON THE HOUSING LADDER... Struggling to see how that would make it unaffordable for someone to move? Am I missing something obvious? The person in question hadn't MEW'd/remortgaged to buy "stuff" etc?
  3. You could find a reasonable similar brand new car on PCP/Contract hire for sub-250 I'm sure. I can see the benefits of doing this, even though I own one car which is a 1990 vw golf. The benefit if my golf, apart from its road presence as a modern classic, is its cheapness to maintain, and for a 1.8 petrol engine built nearly 30 years ago will return good mpg, 30 urban and 45 to even 50 mpg on the highway if you absolutely do not touch the accelerator any more than absolutely necessary lol Edit: Sorry, realised £250 was the all-inc, minus fuel price monthly. Okay, so you'd need to shoot at £200ish contract price but a decent trouble free, throwaway ride for £250 incl. insurance and tax if any. Many cars have low or zero tax nowadays.
  4. Good post, sums up how I think about food banks perfectly. More on topic, I do think there has been a slow but steady shift in sentiment regards the UK housing crises. I say plural because the actual price of buying one is not the only crisis in "UK housing".
  5. Yeah... "on average", only 6% saved. The untold story here is the huge majority unable, or unwilling in a few cases, to save ANYTHING.
  6. Yup, and some are even hypocritical enough to support the 6,000 landowners who own 70% of the land with their voting and still complain about house prices/rents. You'll find loads of them on a thread on this very board.
  7. Well, you'll be glad to note that the gentrification of Edinburgh has pushed many of its "undesirables" - which, although including the jobless and feckless, also includes hard working people in normal jobs - out to East, West, Midlothian and Fife, even Falkirk and the Borders. Then those areas experience HPI to the moon and the "natives" there whose families have lived there for generations, get pushed to ???? I don't actually know where. Maybe the cheap North of England places such as Newcastle/Sunderland etc? I dunno. Probably the streets though. I think what's worth noting is that huge numbers of HB recipients, and indeed those in the little remaining council housing units, are working, but average wages are not enough to make ends meet without gubbermint kicks. Don't want to derail the thread further than I already have, but I would say that in central Scotland it's a very divided society now. You'll see the BTL brigade and boomers mobbing the restaurants and their tenants/kids making the food for them. My point is there's nowhere left for anybody to MOVE TO. We are crammed with EEs.
  8. Simply not possible to move all those who don't from the region's capitol - Scarcity of housing everywhere else ensures that. Unless you advocate putting them on the streets.
  9. There is now roughly 50% foreign habitation in Edinburgh.
  10. Never, ever, underestimate the lengths that debt pushing c***s will go to in order to retain control. NB: Due to the sloooooow nar-rat-ion, if you change settings to 1.25x speed, the documentary is still perfectly watchable, but considerably shorter.
  11. I may be mistaken, but is there not a LA cap on HB nowadays? Here (Edinburgh-ish) it's not enough to rent a 1 bedroom flat for a single person. A single person gets just about enough to rent a room.
  12. Wasn't enough uncertainty to stop 650,000 travellers (150k British) spending money travelling though. I'm glad I've given you good ideas. Kick the can as far down the road as you possibly can.
  13. Do Remainers know what they voted for? PS - 2nd comment on the YT vid ?️ "I'm a(n) EU migrant and I would have voted for brexit, any country needs to select the migrants it needs. What nobody talks about when they talk migration is the housing market, Bristol, a leftard leaning multicultural hub has rents and house prices going through the roof, and this is due to migration It's hard to buy a house getting more expensive by the year to rent one" https://youtu.be/6Tnr9cxfJjI
