  1. Yeah right, England willingly handing over the last dregs of the empire, thats not going to happen any time soon.
  2. I think war on a global scale is a potential outcome in this scenario we find ourselves in, but not a war in the conventional sense, this one may well be started by the common man.
  3. Same here, give each household £600 worth of sports equipment, might tempt people to get off their fat arses. How can a few days of sports cost £10bn, madness, in a country thats already about to be repossessed.
  4. We all need to look to Iceland on how to take back power and wipe out corruption. http://www.truth-out...-not/1322327303
  5. I voted gold, The house, well who knows what the SE is going to look like if and when things get worse, stuck with an asset in a place where it may well be uninhabitable in the next decade. Cash, who knows if that will be safe, in the current climate I would say high risk. Shares, better than cash if invested in sensible companies. Gold, safe if you can get your hands on it, it might lose its value a bit if things settle out, but also strong possibilities on the up side. I'd go 50% gold, 30% shares 20% cash.
  6. Ask a taxi driver, strong language be warned>>
  7. This is exactly what needs to happen, this is crux of our economic woes, even a strict mortgage borrowing limit like 1x earnings. Is it really beneficial for our economy for everyone in this country to be mired in debt? This would slash house prices, we then let exposed banks go bust, use bailout money to protect savings/pensions and start from scratch with super tight regulation, the economy would reshape itself in a more productive sustainable way. The system as it stands is doomed to fail.
  8. You cant 'put your life on hold', your either living or your dead.
  9. I think your worry is justified Fred. Society has always evolved and will always evolve, to the point where we become truly civilised. The oncoming pain is another growing pain on our way to sustainability, civility and peace. Right now we have offices the length and breadth the country stuffed to the gunwales full of people sitting staring blankly at screens all day long, we have people sitting at home on handouts. Who knows, a change from dull office life or sitting transfixed at the TV to out working in the fields might be a revelation... A good hard kick up the **** we really need, bring forth the revolution..
  10. So we can deduce from this the act of sleeping is now illegal in your own shed, which is yours. I'd tell them they have got it all wrong, I was just resting with my eyes closed, I like to be in my shed during night, i'm actually nocturnal.
  11. I agree with you there, if peak oil really does turn out to be true in the next decade,, then that is one scary graph!!
  12. The way I see it a typical goldbug would wait till society sorts itself out after a year or so, then trade back for paper and buy up assets, The idea of a goldbug heading to the shop with a krugerrand for a loaf of bread is lunacy, not in a million years.
  13. They are packed into boxes for transport, so, best avoid sticking your cucumber in a dirty box, you never know what you might catch.
  14. Dont think they grow with ecoli in them, probably just those crazy Germans been playing 'hide ze cucumber' again, but forgetting to rinse them afterwards.
  15. Just been a shower up here up in the north about an hour ago, my car is covered in a thin layer of ash, as is everything else, you can smell the sulphur, I would not like to be flying anywhere in the north UK right now.
  16. We are heading right for the gutter At the same time we need to experience rock bottom, to get the people of this country grounded again, its the only way forwards.
  17. http://www.scotframe.co.uk/web/site/MainlandUK/Supawall/Supawall-Intro.asp http://www.scotframe.co.uk/web/site/SF_KitSearch.asp These new Sip panels are the way to go, kit houses are so easy to build, and not all that expensive, they will last as long if not longer than old outdated cavity brick design, makes you realise just how much people are getting ripped off buying old out dated uninsulated shite, these new sip homes cost next to nothing to heat.
  18. We are not interconnected, we are individuals. Science proves this beyond doubt, a 'soul' is the product of electrons whizzing around the brain, a 'soul' can and does only exist within the confines of the skull, that is the reality, Occams razor, the odds are stacked heavily against spirituality.
  19. People need to toughen up a bit, its only a little bit of snow, hardly the blitz, the country is full of nancies. .
  20. I didnt say you were a benefit scrounger, it is supposed to be a safety net, an insurance policy which we are all forced to pay into, of which you made valid use of. A benefit scrounger is someone who does everything possible to avoid contributing to society, and as it happens the country is full of them. The safety net is too generous. Most jobs are not advertised at the job centre, Its the last place anyone should look for a job, its all about getting out there and looking, the eastern Europeans self-evidently manage this just fine, as they are willing to work they find jobs. Brits must lower their expectations. How come its mostly immigrants/migrant workers who are doing most of the labouring, How come they find these jobs so easily, As I say, slave labour was a luxury, labours scorched earth politics has come to its conclusion, the good times are over, the country is broke, game over.
  21. Translated: were probably going to have more QE
