  1. I don't think there will be any bank runs in the UK anymore because everyone is covered with the FSCS up to £85k. Even if a couple of banks go under and the govt needs to print money to cover FSCS, I doubt it would inflate the £ all that much.
  2. Why are we subsidising the wealthy? Those up to age 45 should be getting the free bus passes.
  3. The bank is a private company and should be able to put whatever they like in the contract. They obviously class housing benefit tenants as high risk, which could prevent the landlord paying their mortgage. Its the same as car insurance companies charging more for young male drivers. It’s not discrimination, it’s based on data. These people are being subsidised by the the public already and now want to be subsidised by the (publicly bailed out) bank too.
  4. Not the most expensive faggot in soho...
  5. Thank goodness we’re leaving so we’ll never be an EU vassal state. It’s a shame to see a great nation like Italy not being permitted to make its own decisions.
  6. To be fair, the David Attenborough documentaries they produce are world class. Their news service is best ignored.
  7. No govt could throw the over-extended "hard working families" under the bus... The reality is that the biggest borrowers are bankers and other high earners. Rates will be increased at glacial pace over the next 20 years, with inflation running above average to erode debt and make it easier to pay off.
  8. In July I put offers on 2 London flats at around 10% under asking price. I received a sharp intake of breath, some snickering, and "that offer is offensive" back from the agent/vendors. Both flats have been on the market for 4-5 months and have dropped their asking price multiple times since they were listed.
  9. Indeed. This fiasco will probably sink the company. Nobody would buy from them now, especially not off plan.
  10. It's the landlord's house, why shouldnt he charge the top rent achievable? Anything less is silly, from a business perspective. Dont hate the player etc.
  11. Don't worry, we have a burgeoning Sharia court system coming in to play - 80 courts so far. In 20 years we might be lucky to have another 80.
  12. Fake grass is all the rage in Clapham. Even more so than decks.
  13. I've seen entire gardens covered in decking! I don't understand why people choose decking over paving when on the ground floor.
  14. Kitchens and bathrooms are depreciating liabilities, and are usually chosen/installed by people who have no eye for design. I cringe when I see cheap particleboard and plastic bench tops, creaky orange laminate flooring, aeroplane-sized bathroom sinks etc. etc. etc. Extensions that add space are much better and do increase the selling price, especially if you get another useable bedroom, a downstairs toilet etc.
