  1. If you have had a vaccination you do not know if you have had an immune response. You need a test to confirm whether you have immunity to the virus. The individual cannot act with impunity just because they have had the vaccination. Vaccination without confirmation of immunity is effective only when a threshold percentage of the population have been vaccinated whereby the statistical immunity response from trials can be extended to the larger population. I suspect there will soon be cases of death from covid despite having the vaccine. Correct me if I am wrong.
  2. UK House Price Index for November 2020 https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-house-price-index-for-november-2020
  3. Marginal rate is 72.8% if paying additional rate income tax via ltd with personal income over £150,000/year.
  4. I read a comment on the FT that stated the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) were hiring 2,000 employees. While I cannot verify this information, it did lead me to the following: 1. VOA are planning to do a complete revaluation of rateable value of business properties by 2023. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/providing-rental-information-for-revaluation-2023 2. VOA have launched a graduate scheme https://www.gov.uk/government/news/voa-launches-its-2021-graduate-scheme This suggests to me that the results of the business reevaluation will enable a res
  5. Rather than ending the stamp duty holiday, the Government should scrap the tax altogether https://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/2021/01/13/rather-ending-stamp-duty-holiday-government-should-scrap-tax/ 'Growth' aka Inflation. In other news, the Daily Mail are reporting that Harry Potter is attempting to make amends with his 'beloved' Aunt and Uncle Dursley upon the realisation that his room under the stairs in their house worth £560,000 in Little Whinging, Surrey was actually rather a good deal. The cupboard, measuring 2'6" x 5'6", has recently been redecorated with Farrow and B
  6. Presumably a majority leave this country via air (or rail) where each and every passport is scanned on departure. Why therefore are these figures estimates? While it may be hard to count everyone currently on the island accurately, it should be easy to calculate figures of people arriving and departing (the delta) and in real time. How is it possible for an island nation not to know how many people are here at any given time? I don't believe that this data is not available--someone has it and it is accurate.
  7. Housing market in England and Wales loses momentum https://www.ft.com/content/9111f081-af16-4a69-be74-62789b6325bf In other news, a recent Channel 4 press release stated that filming has begun for a new property show Inflation, Inflation, Inflation featuring Prophet Spencer and Prophet Allsopp.
  8. Property market will melt down without stamp duty extension, Sunak warned https://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/uk/property-market-will-melt-without-stamp-duty-extension-sunak/ Prophet Spencer:
  9. Interesting... does this 'offer' in any way help the buyer get a mortgage to purchase the house perhaps? If the price were lower instead the mortgage would be more affordable to the buyer and the income requirement would be lower enabling a larger number of people to buy the same property thus increasing the probability of a sale. Just reduce the price by £7,200 (£600 x 12)? Presumably they just don't want to reduce their prices. Is there some house price threshold that must be met for government scheme perhaps? You might deduce that they are more interested in keeping sale prices high rather
  10. My only criticism of this episode of Grand Designs was that he didn't spend enough money.
  11. I wonder what Prophet Beeny's opinion is?
  12. Is the 990 year leasehold on houses to force the sale of the freehold? Are there any circumstances in which you would want a 990 year leasehold but not the freehold of a house. You already have the right to buy the freehold through enfranchisement so presumably a 990 leasehold will in practice be the purchase of the freehold. I agree that freeholders will want compensation for loss of income, but why should the leaseholders be eligible for compensation in previous years? The significance of this proposed legislation is not to be underestimated.
  13. 1. Paving the way for a Land Value Tax (LVT)? 2. I suspect commonhold is going to form part of the solution to the cladding scandal. For example I can see that banks may lend only against a commonholding to replace cladding.
