  1. Internal emigration of White British born away from London commented on when the census reported last year. http://www.prospectmagazine.co.uk/blog/london-census-ethnic-minorities/ Coming up here, buying our houses with their unearned HPI gains…
  2. http://www.party.coop/2013/02/04/gareth-thomas-introduces-new-co-operative-housing-legislation/ Not mentioned on here yet. Among a range of needed reforms the Bill places a duty on the Homes and Communities Agency and local authorities with housing and planning responsibilities to promote co-operative and mutual housing options and report annually in this regard. It encourages councils to promote co-op housing to again help those who can’t afford to buy. Co-op housing has for too long been a forgotten option for housing authorities and this measure could help to change the incentives so that, as in Sweden, Norway and Germany, co-operative housing options are given proper consideration.
  3. http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-14055490 Far from the Bondinho tramway that carries tourists to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain, the new rail car forms the backbone of a project to overhaul transport in the impoverished neighborhoods that are elevated and cut off from one another. Drug traffickers wield control over several such favelas. "The Alemao cable car symbolizes the fact that we are investing not only in our main streets and hydroelectric plants, but also in people to change their daily lives because with the station, people living here will enjoy public services they didn't have before," Rousseff said at the inauguration ceremony. Each station will be equipped with a post office, bank and library. "Before, people used to consider leaving the neighborhood because of drug trafficking and insecurity, but now that will change," said the president, adding she was proud of her role in the "pacification" of the Alemao favelas during a major November 2010 military operation.

  6. Because there is always someone richer, with a bigger yacht/house/football club…
  7. Interesting read 3yrs on.… However the situation is precarious, and could change quickly if a credible strategy for debt repayment is not put in place. Such a strategy should include: The use of more index-linked bonds; A managed decline in public spending; An increase in property taxes; A rise in VAT and the abolition of the new 50p tax band; A solid commitment not to fritter away 'bubble' revenues http://www.centreforum.org/index.php/mainpublications/190-a-balancing-act-fair-solutions-to-a-modern-debt-crisis
  8. Anyone who was alive the last time we had a Euro referendum should not be able to vote if we have one again. Should shut up the tired old right-wing-nuts. "We'll have a vote but you can't participate, OK?"
  9. From 2006 http://www.moneyweek.com/investments/property/a-mortgage-for-life--and-beyond
  10. We're about to find out whether credit availability trumps affordability. BoE approvals over 55k per month key figure IMO.
  11. [quote name='Monkey' timestamp='1358758555' post='909241444' their main reason for house prices to rise is loose lending and a housing shortage? Yep. See 2000-2008
  12. As food prices rise, what's the best way to reduce your weekly bill at the supermarket? Channel 4 Dispatches conducts a nationwide fruit and veg experiment to find out if you could save money by heading to the market stall, the shop next door, or even just a different branch of the same supermarket down the road.

  13. Our Dressage Team and rowers must need more money.
  14. Check the name! http://www.johnlobbltd.co.uk/catalogue/fullsize_images/Website_shoes_boots/Websiteshoes/Mensshoes/Oxfords/Austeritybrogueoxford/austerity_oxford.htm
  15. Quite right Cameron! We need less red tape for these vital aspirational entrepreneurs, and less moaning from the tenant class.
  16. Kind of the point of the documentary was that the Euro Communist ideas of mutualisation and localisation were taken up in a bastardised way by both Nu Lab and now the Tories.
  17. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ptbx2 Interesting radio documentary on the UK Communist Party as was, and its influence on New Labour and (I kid you not) Michael Gove. Number of themes resonate with discussion here, the role of the State and Stalins UK property portfolio to name two.
  18. Lower Labour costs Increase rentiers income Pressure to maintain asset prices Sounds like the ideal Tory policy.
  19. "(To the tune of Marching Through Georgia.) Sound the call for freedom boys, and sound it far and wide, March along to victory, for God is on our side, While the voice of nature thunders o'er the rising tide: "God gave the land to the people." Chorus The land, the land, 'Twas God who made the land, The land, the land, The ground on which we stand, Why should we be beggars With the ballot in our hand? God gave the land to the people. Hark! The sound is spreading from the east and from the west! Why should we work hard and let the landlords take the best? Make them pay their taxes on the land just like the rest! The land was meant for the people. Chorus Clear the way for liberty, the land must all be free, None of us shall falter from the fight tho' stern shall be. 'Til the flag we love so well shall fly from sea to sea, O'er the land that is free for the people. Chorus The army now is marching on, the battle to begin, The standard now is raised on high to face the battle din, We'll never cease from fighting 'til the victory we win, And the land is free for the people. Chorus"
  20. Scrap HB Tenant pays £425, can't be evicted for 36mnths If LL can't meet his mortgage payments on this property tough, Landlord and Bank loses and House becomes property of the local council. Sorted;)
  21. Just edit it to show him doing a dance. Like the chubby Korean guy.Should work.
