  1. Don't pay much attention to Nationwide/Halifax indexes as there is a clear agenda IMO, but is 0.5% one of the bigger % (reported) falls?
  2. Residents claim neighbours of HMOs are being forced to move house as a result of anti social behaviour https://www.northantslive.news/news/northamptonshire-news/there-nowhere-go-residents-call-5679837 "She said it was unfair that landlords had a right to appeal and residents did not, and said she feared their "voices don't matter" on the issue." Slightly preachy local rag article but just highlighs another by-product of the BTL scumlord-make money at any cost-screw the neighbours-i don't live there anyway-loadsamoney-lets cram em in mentality. Makes me sick. A good summation of the housing situation in this country and issues shared amongst a lot of our inner cities. This country is a joke IMO. Didn't realise that residents couldn't appeal though? Tells you everything that's wrong really, and who's side councils are on. P.s. not sure if these student HMOs? Anyone know Northampton? Can't be a more selfish element of society IMO.

It's not just the USA realising something has to be done. Reality bites?
  6. Is this something The Good Law Project could look into? They exposed the dodgy Covid contracts. (Jo Maugham etc). Although it shouldn't have to take an external 3rd party to look into this or other dodgy government actions in the first place! What checks and accountability is there in government to ensure policy isn't influenced by donors? I assume if there are any they are obviously being ignored.
  7. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/england-italy-euros-rome-papers-b1882070.html ‘The whole world is supporting Italy’: Rome newspapers claim no one wants England to win the Euros One Italian paper even claimed Boris Johnson’s wife ‘looked like his carer’ at the semi-final That sub-headline is gold! She actually does look like his carer and he is on day release from a mental institition!!! lol! I shouldn't laugh though, this knob is in charge of our country.
  8. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/buy-to-let/meet-landlords-forced-bribe-tenants-leave-properties/ Meet the landlords forced to bribe tenants to leave properties 'I even offered to pay the deposit on a new rental to get rid of them', one buy-to-let investor said
  9. Yep, whilst in the monority, England/England fans have showed zero class: - Booing opposing teams anthems - Physical and verbal abuse to opposing woman and children fans - Laser pointer at Schemichel which may have made a difference - The tearful young german girl fan who recived online abuse - Raheem Sterling blantanly diving (again) to win a penalty against Denmark (And yes I appreciaite English fans get stick when they visit other countries but two wrongs don't make a right and targeting kids is crossng a line IMO) And Southgate...where to begin, although he seems like a genuinely lovely guy, he is a massively overatted and a "very" lucky manager. The recent world cup they had these easiest run to the semis, and in this Euros campaign they've only really played Germany who are half decent but are very fragile compared to years gone past (Croatia were awful in the first game, England should always beat Scotland, Ukraine had a shocking defence, Denmark, again England should always beat Scandiavian teams on paper). He's too scared to play proper attacking football or pick genuinely exciting players when we have a huge abundance of them, very much the ultra cautious manager. A bit like using a Ferrari and not going over 30mph. But on top of that, and most importantly, Boris the self serving clown will be milking this like threre's no tomorrow if England win, like he couldn't be more unbearable than he is already. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if he/Rishi say it would "help" the housing market somehow! So for all those above reasons I also hope Italy win.
  10. Going back to my first post about this, how do i report the scumlord who rents out the next door house and are based overseas? Surely you don't have to be a tenant to report a landlord? Is it the same as reporting tax evasion? i.e. https://www.gov.uk/report-an-unregistered-trader-or-business ? Useful info here: https://www.directlineforbusiness.co.uk/landlord-insurance/knowledge-centre/running-your-property/landlords-guide-to-non-resident-landlord-scheme Overseas scumbag trying to get away with it: https://community.hmrc.gov.uk/forums/customerforums/ifp/de6d59b4-c7f0-e911-a812-000d3a7ed2f2
  11. To be honest I'm surprised he wasn't a full time BTL scumbag, fits the personality type IMO. But estate agent isn't far behind. Bet he has a one/two house "portfolio" still though.
  12. https://www.ftadviser.com/your-industry/2020/09/01/hmrc-receives-73-000-tax-evasion-reports/ "The number of tax evasion whistleblowing reports made to the taxman has jumped 10 per cent in the past year, in a sign people's patience with tax dodging is wearing thin. Data from accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young, published today (September 1), showed HMRC had received 73,000 whistleblowing reports in 2019/20 — 10 per cent more than the 66,000 tips filed by informers the year before. According to UHY Hacker Young, a major driver of the rise in whistleblowing was the “steadily increasing view” among the general public that tax evasion was “unacceptable behaviour”. Accountants also now have a duty to report all potential cases of tax evasion under the ‘failure to prevent tax evasion’ regulations, and accountants and other advisers can now find themselves with serious financial penalties if they do not report something suspicious. Furlough fraud is likely to drive the number of whistleblowing reports, the firm added, with 4,500 employee whistleblowers alerting HMRC to the fact their employer may be abusing the furlough scheme by July 1, 2020."
  13. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9741809/Bank-Englands-chief-economist-warns-inflation-risk.html Bank of England's chief economist warns inflation could be 'nearer four per cent than three per cent' by the end of the year and 'everyone will lose' if it continues to spike Andy Haldane said 'everyone would lose' if inflation level continues to increase Mr Haldane said inflation could be 'nearer to 4% than 3%' by the end of the year Bank of England's chief economist said risk of high inflation levels 'is rising fast' Who'd have thought that hey.
  14. Hmmm...I know my scumbag landlord who rents out nextdoor lives overseas, how do I shop him? Report them in the same way as you would if they were UK based?
  15. Are we heading for a buy-to-let exodus? Older landlords selling up and not being replaced could lead to a shortage of rental homes https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/buytolet/article-9725329/Are-heading-buy-let-exodus.html 'We feel we're being picked on' Yeah, that's because you're a bunch of leaching scumbags...lolz.
