    engineering manager but nothing to do with my views 

    So as an engineering manager, you will certainly need to use logic and reasoning. 

    Also comprehension, assuming you're dealing with detailed, complex plans and designs when you are building whatever it is that you build. 

    So given that you clearly posses these skills, and are a smart chap with a 1st class degree,  I would ask you to read the overwhelming amount of evidence, and use those same skills to come to a conclusion.

    why? doesnt change my views....what do you do....

    I'm interested in your job, and if, as part of your job, you use logical reasoning and comprehension as part of your daily work?  Given you have a first class degree in Engineering (which is impressive) I assume you do this kind of thing day in, day out, no?  What are you engineering?  Bridge builder?  Construction?

    Back to the insults.....idiosavant.... I better hand back my first class engineering degree.

    There is no hard evidence in the article hence no legal proceedings against him. 

    Also, having his name on a building doesn't make him personally racist.... none story. 



    You've made this judgement after having admitted that you hadn't even read the article.  This just about sums up where we're at here.  What do you do for a living, if you don't mind me asking?

    stopped reading half way through - no hard evidence. 

    LOL OK!  No hard evidence? Huh?

    I suspect you didn't even read half of that article (unless you're some kind of idiosavant) because you replied to my post just 4 minutes later, and the article in question is a detailed analysis which is over 7000 words long! 

    If you had actually read the article properly, and digested the words in your brain, you would have seen that the evidence is all there my friend, right in front of your eyes, and it is overwhelming.  Multiple sources, over many years. 

    Please try and give it another go, but this time read the words.

    everyone have heard racist comments by someone once in their life be it family member or close friend. is it reckless or with intent. 

    most people it's reckless. look at the older generation

    Recklessness is hardly an excuse, think before you open your gob, it's simple really.  Also it's a wider issue which goes beyond comments, it's more about attitudes and bias.

    You're not listening to me.  You're using as proof the fact that black and hispanic people voted for him as proof he isn't racist.

    What I'm saying is that black and hispanic people might vote for Trump EVEN IF THEY THINK HE IS RACIST because they're voting due to policies, not personality.

    Her argument is the equivalent of someone saying they can't be racist "CuZ My mate is black'.  Absolute nonsense.  

  7. Certainly not in the near term, no, I dont think so.  The decision has been made.  We'd end up with a worse deal then we had originally.  That's not to say that i don't think we should rejoin at some point in the future.

    I'm generally not in favour of any more plebiscites, as the public have been shown to make poor, ill conceived decisions on complex issues.  For many people, Brexit turned into a religious argument, logic and good will went out of the window.

    I've just STR, bought last house for 350k 2011, just exchanged for 640k. I'm based in South East on the coast but moving to The Lakes. Not expecting much in the way of falls next year. Ultimately unless interest rates rise (not going to happen) or credit dries up (unlikely as well) there will be no significant falls. I work for a SaaS company in East London and my salary remains unchanged by the move. I expect we'll buy again 12 months down the road. 

    Congrats on exchanging, you've certainly made a tidy profit there.  Completely agree with your assessment BTW, unless interest rates suddenly blow up there will be no crash.

    To be fair, I think I see what he means....those people who are careful and prudent with their finances always seem to come off worst when compared with the those that are not, as the latter are bailed out by luck...I guess life isn't fair and all that.

    People buying houses now or in the last few years are no more or less prudent those those waiting for a crash.  Ultimately, i would argue that it is more prudent to invest in a property to live in then to sit about waiting for this crash that's always around the corner but never seems to materialise.

    Gosh I had forgotten what it can feel like sometimes on this website when I end

    up feeling like I have been called up in front of the headmaster! I struggle with this stuff 

    so I have no idea if this will happen but this is what I read: 


    The Government is reportedly considering closing outdoor markets, estate agents, click-and-collect services and temporarily banning home moves in a bid to bring coronavirus rates under control

    Appoloiges, i didnt mean to sound like a headmaster :)
