  1. the tories have learned, why sort out labours overspending and get the wrath of the population in doing so. so they might as well just leave the economy in as bad a state as labour usually do and then when labour get in it will be them that need to close all the stuff down and tell the nurses they cant get a pay rise. Iys a genius move, they are beaten labour at their own game.
  2. yup exactly as i was explaining. many people spend their lives accumulating and never reap the benifit of it, they might as well be poor. a lot of people are like this only obtaining that big house by sacrificing there life. they become mean to themselves and others, their children grow up with less life experience than the kids off the estate. they forego all the little things and joys for the big thing which they often never reap the benifit of in the end. a life not really worth living. if anyone here is like this please stop. take days off, take your kids to the beach, to the cinema
  3. i agree, too many forego a lot of nice things about life, but many of those are them that got into the mortgage trap. i see it all the time, the people in the private houses often forego little treats to show the new car and private house when infact its the constand little treats that make life better. here comes the ice cream van, sorry kids i know its a hot day but heres a cheap choc ice from the freezer. why buy a take away pizza when we can make our own. we will go to the beach instead of the funfair. its this kind of thing. im not saying its not nice to go to the beach sometimes, but whe
  4. its the fault of the banks and lies squarley at their door. The banks control the economic ups and downs and over the past 30 years with the rise and push for more profits the only way this has been achievable is by taking more and more from the population. this has been done by giving every increasing loans by playing with the affordability figures, the more they loan the more profits they make. This created vastly more profits at the detriment of society as a whole, and still this wasint enough, so the net schemes have been to keep the people that paid and were near paid down the loans
  5. PCP is often people that cant afford to pay for a old car, in nearly all cases i know the people that got new cars on pcp were those that couldnt muster up the 3 or 5k needed for a decent secondhand runner after there 1k car gave up. lots are young mothers that faced with a 700 quid repair bill have no money and then find out for £199 down then can have a new status symbol to go with the contract iphone, converse trainers and £40 skye contract they absolutely insist they cannot live without. i lost 2 friends trying to talk them out of taking on these contracts, in a fb post i had them al
  6. this is all too much administration, too much spying, wayy to much technology needed, just a nightmare. solution. ficed road tax per vehicle per year, based on average loss of taxes from fuel duty. you want to have a car you pay the 2k per year road tax and drive where and when you want. anything else is over complicated unfair nonsense,
  7. the answer is not more keeping the people down with rent. council or otherwise. the answer is to give more people the oportunity to break away from being rent slaves. This can only be achieved by selling cheap land to those that dont allready have a bought or mortgaged property. and then allowing diffrent types of property to be placed on this land from traditional homes to static caravans and factory built homes basically whatever the person can afford at the time and then improve as they progress in life. this is the answer not more people sucking rent outta them. those that work will
  8. in my town, the council houses are 100 quid a month cheaper than the HA homes. same houses.
  9. after a year experincing life without work, the thought that going back to the daily grind is filling me with dred and depression. Life without working with a wage being still paid is pretty good albiet restrictions on travel and general intrests but still its been an insight into how life is for those that dont need to pay the bills and drag themselves out the door to do stuff they rather not do. I think there is going to be a massive amount of reluctance to go back to life before covid, many just accepting early retirement or that a change in lifestyle is the way forward. covid has all
  10. after reading all the comments i have come to this conclution. 1. wibble is full of hate and rage at men 2. wibble wants all men to suffer because some woman do by a tiny minority of men 3. wibble needs to learn more about equality and less about misandry 4. wibble is one of the problems with society and must immediatly stop thinking this man hate. it will destroy. i read nothing but acceptance by men and compassion here about the plight of woman but this was not enough for wibble she wants revenge, she wants blood. im glad to say woman are as tired of feminists as men are
  11. this goes on everywhere. basically if its not called haddock or cod its not haddock or cod. any chippy selling haddock or cod will highlight and point out they are. any selling basa or some such thing will just call it fish and chips. in reality there is nothing actually wrong with the alternatives in most cases its just you expect it to be haddock or cod. The problem is actually the cunsomers fault not the shops. simply because people want everything for nothing these days. they have got the home bargains and iceland mentality. thats why they still sell 2p a piece chicken nuggets and sausages
  12. for a main house builder like persimmon etc yes. but for joe bloggs and a bit of hard work and common sense this can be stretched out to double. the problem is land, not just the cost of land but the hard cash needed to put down to buy it without a mortgage. if everyone is struggling to find 5% deposits then they are sure going to struggle to buy the land which will be a much bigger chunk of the build. thise that owned land not houses were the very biggest gainers of the last 30 years, chop an acre off the field every 10 years to build 5 houses on your 1000 acre farm and you can live in luxury
  13. Completly agree with your points and why this is happening, but it is happening. The reasons are as you mention, cause and affect in action. im just very suprised it didint happen sooner, but the gloves are off now. Its not just rents either its all the other bills involved in having a roof over your head. Its hidden inflation to blame, everything thats important to good health and wellbeing has risen while discretionary items keep falling in price masking the real issue. This is the diffrent many fail to understand its the important life stuff you cant really avoid thus it has hit the
  14. campervans are selling, you can hardly buy a van just now. lot of young and older with no kids have moved into campervans. your going to here a lot soon about the millions of people living in vans quite happily paying nothing. it has now become a trendy and socially acceptable thing to do, it started with home holidays and many people realised that they can manage full time in these with a visit to the parents every couple weeks to wash the clothes etc. They are even pitching up in their parents driveways. we are going to hear lots and lots about this in the next few years as people like many
  15. these places they are building are the worst properties possible, they are also vastly over priced. the ones they built in my village are the most expensive houses in the village, made mostly of wood where after 2 years could do with a stain before they start to rot. i cannot think of anything so stupid and expensive to buy than these. there is nothing affordable or good about them.
