  1. If a person bought a property with no cladding issues 5 years ago which would be the majority of buyers they would be 20% through their mortgage term now and would not have lined a LL pockets.
  2. https://thenegotiator.co.uk/mortgages-broker-lending/
  3. The vast majority lf their parents would not have gone to university which was for those were were the most able. In their parents time I think it was about 5% who went from school to university. Yes calling a polytechnic or a college a university and charging £s for kids to go there to study worthless degrees such as sociology or psychology, end up with a 50k debt is a ponzi scheme.
  4. Problem is the imbeciles on FB twatter etc. If a load of older people had died they would have been whinging that the govt "killed my granny" and gathered in 1000's waving their little placards. Damned if you do damned of you do not.
  5. Nice one LOL Yes they are entitled to everything they want for free that is what they have been told all their lives
  6. best not to mention that you will be called a deranged racist by some people who do not understand the law of supply and demand
  7. 100% with you on all counts. Schoolkids are being indoctrinated that of they get a degree in anything they will have a great career and earn loads of money. A mate of mine's kid at school was told if you do not study hard you will end up on a building site. Her respons ewas my dad is a brickie he earns £300 a day how much do you earn miss?
  8. Great series Beer was probably 2 old pennies
  9. I do not think so - unemployment is mainly in the catering holiday and restaurant sector. I doubt that many of those people were in the market to buy a house ahyway. I kmnow of 1 person who has been made redundant hde is an engineer who had another job and started within 3 weeks. Agree with both sentiments Agreed
  10. It does not say that the govt does want to know. The Commons Public Accounts Committee is an amalgam of from all parties. I doubt that many people in govt or in opposition give a poo. HI SJL - So why do you work then ??
  11. evidence ? Personally I have nothing at all against the poor or the rich. I consider myself lucky to be in good health and have heal;thy family and friends. That is what matters to me.
  12. Sorry my friend i cannot agree although I accept that anyone can claim anything. Every single person is responsible for their own actions. I am, you are.
  13. Class Not sure overall but a buddy of mine is a sales director for a group that has Jag, Ford, Kia, BM and Skoda. Spoke last week said August was the best month they have have in history on all franchises and that even with lockdown they are doing around 90% of what they were doing this time last year. Says they are getting fewer visits but those who are inquiring are people who are motivated to get a new car rather than tyre kickers who just want a test drive or to chat to a salesman. I think the thing is that many people who lost their jobs are in the travel or hospital industry who would probably not be buying a new car in any event. Would not buy clothes on line other than shoes where I buy Loakes and know the size of my tootsies.
  14. Yes sadly so many just say that anyone who does not vote for them is stupid, racist, rich, communist, or many other things blah blah they do not want to listen to why people do not vote for the party they support and think that calling people names will change it for them And they were totally uncompetitive eg the car industry which was permanently on strike and lost out to cheaper Japanese cars produced in far higher numbers. No what is amazing is that Thatcher left the leadership in 1990. Thirty years again and some people say all the problem they have are her fault! They will be saying the same for the next 50 years.
  15. Scott I usually agree with most of what you say. The population of the uk is increasing bot due to the indigenous population but due to mass immigration - not a racist thing it is a cultural difference. There have been any been number of reports that have discussed this. Until unless Asia Africa the Mid East start to reduce the size of families the world os doomed - I think it is already to late personally. The PM of Egypt said a few months ago when their population reached 100M for the first time that population explosion was afar bigger thereat to the economy and stability of his country and the mid East than terrorism. Was talking to my parenst who said that when they were at school in the mid 70s the fact that overpopulation was going to destroy the world as we know it was spoken about then. Nothing has changed.
  16. HC no offence meant but I think it is fine to decide not to buy for any reason. What I object to is those who go into a fit of rage whenever anyone here says they are going to buy or rant about people who bought a house and saw the value increase. My point is is that it is a home not a financial investment so personally I could not care less if the so called value of my house goes up or down. If it goes up where I move to if/when I do will have gone up ditto if prices fall. To me where I live is a home and a haven for me and my family I do not care if what it may sell for goes up or down. If anyone does not wish to buy as they feel house prices are too high that is their prerogative no problem. I think that there have been people who have been waiting for that huge fall for a decade or more. If they had bought then they would be 40% thought the term of their mortgage and would not have given LL money for all that time. But each to their own - no problem. All the best you you.
  17. Because it is better than the dump they come from
  18. I was being sarcastic as msi mentions it on nearly every one of his posts. Also no need to be rude behind a pc screen little man.
  19. It always has been always will be. Life and existing is fiercely competitive. It was ever thus since the days of prehistoric man. I think you are right about the huge sense of entitlement so many people have. Agree also that the way to gain peace and sanity is to deal with a problem when we have them rather than think we are more unlucky that most of the world and wallow on misery. I have always found that when you start dealing with a problem you immediately feel much better about the world and yourself and your ability to deal with it. How many people think how lucky they are compared to the vast majority of people in Africa and Asia and the Middle East? So many people do not realise how lucky they are. I think that the most important things is that the people you love and care for are well. Since the dawn of time. Recessions have always been a feature of the world - the 1st one was in the 1,400 s. We have not had to deal with anything like the great depression or 2 world wars. What we face is nothing we are very lucky.
