    So yes, if next year the USD died a death that would probably mean the rest of the world was "a wasteland".  But the balance of power in the world can change dramatically within a few decades, and the US does not have some kind of free pass to avoid the consequences.

    The only country that can challenge the US is China, and yes China has its own problems, all of the currencies will not collapse at the same only weaker ones, so which is weaker than others.

    We have one of those. Great for frozen chips, although they vary a lot, McCain "Lighter home chips" could've been made for it. Although nothing beats home made chips deep fried in beef dripping.

    Another thing I've discovered recently is how to boil a potato in 5 or 6 minutes... Peel and submerge in a glass of water, glass just bigger than the potato to use least water... microwave on full power for 5 or 6 minutes and bingo, a boiled potato, just like it came out of a saucepan.

    This place is becoming more and more like Mumsnet every day

    Well personally speaking I like the British climate, a lot of the time anyway. I spent 15 months in the south of France and being hot and dry for ages got rather boring (as well as dry and dusty-looking a lot of the year). Sometimes in winter the British climate can get a bit depressing, when it's dark, cold, and damp for weeks on end, but overall I'll stick with it.

    The problem with France is the French

    We were going to buy in Oct but with the news coming out of Canada etc we'll give it one more year.

    We'd happily buy at Dec 2019 prices now but prices round us realistically have to collapse 50% to make them anywhere near sensible, even then they'd be back to 2007 peak bubble prices.

    Anything is possible right now.

    Is your wifey on-side now.

    I hope prices crash so their will be hope for the kids

    Salt water isn't much use for drinking or watering crops with, and desalination is a very energy-consuming, expensive process.

    It also rains in the UK a lot, but rather less in the south east which is also the most badly over-populated part of it.

    I can see more in that, human seems like to like warmer climates with less rain but then that can result in a problem, how often do people say 'I like living there as it rains a lot'

    Will we all be expected to make our own produce again? If so you can expect radical changes to our education systems for starters.

    I can hear the captains of industry now:- "Get me a liberal arts graduate"!


    We do not have what it takes, it would have been easy to blame the politicians sometimes the skill set is not available and our ability for hard work is now a myth

    The false dawn of China (it's super autocratic government, environmental issues, Vietnam, etc, undercutting it now, being allied with a dying Russia, tanking demographics are really working against it now).

    A lot of what you say is true, but I would guess 70% of the manufacturing base of the world is in China, and what does that mean

    😲 You'll be getting a new job soon unless you fix that attitude/persona 🤫. Good agents with a conscience tend to move on or into some other line of work. Sad but true.

    Although I found a couple of good agencies in West Wales (Haverfordwest) to be surprisingly honest, upfront and by the book. A refreshing experience. That or they were a bunch of sociopaths that subverted my sharp personality reading skills.

    It is not a proper job more ad-hoc I got it from Trustrabbit, I got an email from the company saying/asking 

    below confirming in your opinion that they would make a good match for the property or not

    -///// I wonder if i would be liable or not

    They owed me £180 and paid me £250 but have not left a review
