  1. Today I favour the rich yet delicate aroma of Evostick, highly hallucinogenic with a comedown like being battered with a large Haddock...
  2. Peter Shiff's goldbuggery does give him a vested interest in stirring up fear and panic...
  3. I would disagree, if there has been any suppression of wages it is due to our governments immigration policy not by the Polish worker. I cannot criticize anyone willing to move and work hard in order to raise their standard of living and to just point a generalised finger at Johnny Foreigner appears xenophobic. Indeed implying that they should stay at home and improve their country assumes that they are able to. How successful have we been in improving this country through our hard work? How have you improved our country? I certainly think that my influence has been negligible regarding current housing policy? Personally I lay the blame directly at the foot of the banks and government. Not at the door of an immigrant who is trying to better themselves. I would be doing exactly the same if I was in their shoes. If they are prepared to learn the language and are able to work hard in a required skill I have no issue with immigration. If they just want to come over and sit on the dole that is another issue.
  4. Why do you ask? Are you unable to compete against them?
  5. They have been forged in a culture that does not rely on benefits.
  6. I would agree. The Polish work ethic is very strong.
  7. I repost from an earlier thread "Not so in the NW, M6 north of Lancaster, Kendal, Carnforth etc. On right move there have been a number of reductions in asking price recently on properties under 300,000...many with no chain https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/77842101#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/78748794#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/78015153#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/89193112#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/93422408#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/84146291#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/74700963#/ Also some half decent houses have been on the market for a while... https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/50636370#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/71066389#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/64472932#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/66768375#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/76131586#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/96801098#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/73137651#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/76131586#/ Market appears rather stagnant up here..."
  8. Yes they could but kinda defeats the object unless they are forced sellers...
  9. I( am not taken in with the odd hotspot being hyped by VI's.. Property Lion is recording drops in transaction volumes across the country. If there is a shortage of houses then how many chains are going to falter because buyers cannot find anything to move into...? I can see a scenario where few contracts are actually exchanged... In my, not so humble, opinion, Estate Agents and other VI's are having to pump up the market as they need to increase commission due to lower volume of sales... So they take a hotspot as an indicator of what is happening across the UK.
  10. "Agents are telling me that because stock is so few and far between they’re advising home owners to first get an offer accepted on their own home, and they’re finding that many buyers are more willing to then give owners a bit more time to find their next place to move to before the chain can get moving.” If there is a shortage of houses then how many chains are going to falter because buyers cannot find anything to move into...?
  11. Nice summary and thanks for the link to plumpot, very good resource Couple of points though: The Lancaster post code area includes Kendal...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LA_postcode_area so you are contradicting yourself slightly in your post. Indeed the Lancashire postcode area covers 17 towns in Lancashire, South Cumbria and N. Yorkshire. Many of these properties are in National Parks and areas of outstanding beauty. As I have posted (listed above) before a fair number of properties have been on the market since 2019. If there is a shortage of properties for sale, where are people going to move to? How much longer is it going to take for chains to complete? Indeed how many chains are going to complete before the stamp duty ends and then how many chains will collapse due to an overstretched offer based on completed prior to the stamp duty ending or a refusal to mortgage due to the banks valuation of the property. No doubt time will tell...
  12. Nope.. Manchester is not the North West. It is one city in the North West I repost from an earlier thread "Not so in the NW, M6 north of Lancaster, Kendal, Carnforth etc. On right move there have been a number of reductions in asking price recently on properties under 300,000...many with no chain https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/77842101#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/78748794#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/78015153#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/89193112#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/93422408#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/84146291#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/74700963#/ Also some half decent houses have been on the market for a while... https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/50636370#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/71066389#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/64472932#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/66768375#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/76131586#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/96801098#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/73137651#/ https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/76131586#/ Market appears rather stagnant up here..."

  14. I lived in North Devon 30 years ago. Barnstaple. Back in the day Ilfracombe was almost turned into a ghetto when landlords bought up massive hotels, did them up and then advertised in Liverpool and Glasgow for tenants who were unemployed. As a result Drug use and crime became a real problem as a large contingent of people with massive socio-economic problems made an exodus from these inner cities to Ilfracombe. May have changed now though. Very seasonal with little industry. Good surfing though!
  15. Aye Nether Kellet is great 2 mins from M6 close to Lakes and Dales and has one of the biggest SCUBA Diving Centres in the UK on its doorstep. Yet still not sold yet.....
