  1. Imagine it was Norwegian Wealth Fund v Scottish North Sea Oil. We can only dream sadly.
  2. From the experience of September and October in my work, I can certainly agree with this post. We’ve just had the best month for Order Intake (October) that we’ve had in almost five years. We’ve noticed a substantial change in enquiries from O&G companies.
  3. SNP are the biggest party in Scotland and got 37% of the vote. They got a bloody nose for indyref2 but still have a lot of support. Interestingly a lot of people that support SNP don't support independence. They like their policies apart from independence and are happy to vote for them normally. Last nights result would have been very different if indyref2 hasn't been announced a few months back.
  4. Sorry but I've read a lot of nonsense (and plenty of good stuff) on here but this is right up there with the worst of it. Is that JC that wants to nationalise various industries, increase corporation tax and the higher tax bracket? Yet you have him down as being in with the "rich and powerful". Honestly take the tinfoil off. I've heard it all now when JC is being called a figurehead for the rich and powerful that are somehow pulling the strings for TM to **** up the election. They probably also ensured TM didn't appear in last nights debate, produced a horrendous Tory manifesto and ultimately ensured that she looks like they've dug up Thatcher (spit) and stuck her in Vivienne Westwood to keep the kids away from the TV.
  5. People on here have their heads stuck somewhere. Putting in offers massively under the listing will just piss everyone off. 10% success rate is a nonsense as well. No way will 10 out of 100 low ball offers succeed. Just check your local sold prices and see how many went for 20,30 or 50% under listing price. I'm in Scotland where house prices have been pretty static since 2007. I've been looking at rightmove near enough everyday for my area and also check sold prices when it is updated. In all that time I don't think I've seen more than a 5% difference.
  6. Is it foreign money in Northern cities? Glasgow is still very cheap in comparison to South England. £90-100k houses that rent for £650-£700 per month.
  7. Eh Aberdeen council is a Tory and Labour coalition. It has nothing to do with SNP.
  8. I don't disagree with you. I'm just questioning the term home owner. If you have a 10% deposit and 90% mortgage are your really a home owner?
  9. Home owner?! Surely they mean a home with a mortgage? Quite a big difference. Plenty on here could easily have a home with a mortgage. Owning the home is a bit more difficult due to the disgusting prices.
  10. I'd change that from prices to mortgage repayments. When mortgage repayments reach untenable levels.....
  11. Of course they are still mental. Mental when you look at average salaries, employment rates and size etc. They are however cheaper to finance than in 2007 due to the criminally low interest rates. So in terms of affordability they are cheaper.
  12. When you read things like this does no one else worry that prices in the U.K. could still go even higher / more mental? Granted London and the SE England is already pretty mental but the North and Scotland are still at 2007 prices. I'm in Glasgow and prices haven't moved much in a decade. I believe Edinburgh is the same. Aberdeen went daft with oil prices but has dropped in the last 18 months or so. My fear is that with the weak pound, overseas investors will move away from London and start pushing up prices in other major UK cities. Is this likely? If you were an overseas investor why invest in overpriced London when the rest of the U.K. os cheap and thanks to the devaluation of sterling is now ~20% cheaper that's 6 months ago. Places like Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh etc must be ripe for it.
  13. It's actually a triple whammy for the xenophobes. Increased foreign buyers due to collapse in pound. Increased cost of foreign goods due to collapse in pound. Decrease in saving returns due to interest rate cut. I actually posted all this a day after the vote and got abused for it. Probably because I'm a filthy Scot. What am I like?!
  14. So Next yearly profits are forecast as £792 million rather than £825 million and as such they are somehow going bust according to some on here. This is place is mental at times. The share price has dropped as guidance for next year is 14% lower profit due to the weak pound and increases in prices.
