    Nationwide says UK property price rises have slowed for the third consecutive month and most recently from 11.2% in May to 10.7% in June. The slowdown in growth can be traced to the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and an escalation of Britain’s cost of living crisis.

    Unsurprisingly, property owners ask whether a crash is on the horizon, especially now that the economy is heading into a downturn and possibly a full-blown recession. Adding to the gloomy atmosphere, Bank of England officials, seemingly immune to the prospect of a slump, have begun to raise interest rates.

    While it would be naive to dismiss the possibility of a large and sustained fall in home prices, the weight of evidence is to the contrary.

    Bailey said he was determined to bring down inflation and was prepared to use the Bank’s power to increase interest rates aggressively in response, though he added that it may not be necessary if price growth slowed towards the end of the year.

    “I think the UK economy is probably weakening rather earlier and somewhat more than others,” he said. “There will be circumstances in which we will have to do more. We’re not there yet in terms of the next meeting. We’re still a month away, but that’s on the table. But you shouldn’t assume its the only thing on the table – that’s the key point,” he added.

    Wall of money, you say?

    Off the top of my head:

    Nag your MPs. Make their life unbearable until they reply with actions in parliament instead of platitudes.

    Get an action group together on Meta or NextDoor, start putting up signs and stickers. It's very effective for people to see that the 'welcoming' community they take advantage of actually dislikes them. No one wants to think of themselves as the bad guy. 

    Use the action group to drum up press coverage. When you see a 'for sale' sign drop a sticker on it (with your hat down/mask on). 

    If the airbnbs are also listed on google you can make an anon acc and 1 star rate them. Talk to tradesmen, ask them to de-prioritise work for holiday homes. Shouldn't be too hard to convince them, they're also the ones getting priced out. 

    Leaflet. Get people worked up about it. Show case studies of outbid families, of long commutes and substandard living. 

     

     

     

  4. England and Wales population rises to record 59.5m

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/jun/28/england-and-wales-population-rises-to-record-59m

    It means the wider UK population is almost 67 million, once census results published last month for Northern Ireland, showing a population of 1.9 million, and the latest estimate for Scotland, of 5.47 million, are added. 

    There are 11.1 million more people living in England and Wales than there were in 1981 (48.5 million). With 434 residents per square kilometre, England now ranks as the second most densely populated country in Europe after the Netherlands (507 persons per sq km), based on figures from Eurostat.

    Most, not some, most, type II diabetics can reverse their diabetes by avoiding carbs and seed oils.

    Agreed. Don’t forget that food addiction is real, and starts at a young age. 

    They charge you for food that makes you sick and addicted, then they charge for the medicine that prolongs your life so you can keep buying their products.

    Humans are just units of consumption to them.

    Absolutely not, provided that :

    1. Those who buy are using their own funds and not leveraging residential property to "borrow to btl". 

    2. Housing markets are not proped up in any shape or form by government or financial institution policies.

    If that were the case I would have no issue at all with BTL. Landlords are always going to be needed after all.

    Should tenants be able to see if there is a mortgage held on the property they are potentially renting then? Or should agents be compelled to advise if a property is mortgaged or owned outright?

    Whitby has had enough. So have Mevagissey and St Ives. So has Brighton. So have the Lake District, the Cotswolds and half the beauty spots in Britain. No more second homers. Lockdown, staycations and “work from home” have seen an influx of newcomers, sending local property prices soaring by 20% over the past two years. Brighton this week voted to ban new building for non-primary residents, as have St Ives and Whitby. Others seem certain to follow. Where will this lead?

    Won't they travel to a place up north where it is legal, nobody should use abortion as a birth control, but there are some girls unfortunately who might not be bright enough to understand the consequences, have had more than one child they or their family are unable to look after....... thankfully new born babies are easier to find good adoptive homes for.;)

    Won't they travel to a place up north where it is legal,

    Only if they can afford it. Poor women have bodily rights too.

    nobody should use abortion as a birth control,

    Some do, most don’t. 

    but there are some girls unfortunately who might not be bright enough to understand the consequences, have had more than one child they or their family are unable to look after

    Plenty of men want their wives / girlfriends / one night stands to have abortions. Disabled women and girls need access. Raped and women and girls need access. Abused children definitely need access. Domestic violence victims need access. You don’t want to know what happens to an 11 year old when she is forced to birth her father’s child.

    Remember USA allows child marriage.

    thankfully new born babies are easier to find good adoptive homes for

    Not when they’re born addicted or with foetal alcohol syndrome.

    Society pays when women don’t get access to abortions. I for one don’t particularly relish paying more tax to fund unwanted children when they’re taken into care.

    Is it just me or have womens rights taken a battering over the past half a decade?

    I dont see loads of debate about what the definition of a man is, yet we have loads of strapping lads now self identifying as "women" and any woman (actual womb carrier) who dares to speak up in defiance is immediately discredited as a "Karen".

     

    Also, on the news there are groups of young women shouting and cheering with joy over this. Why? Why would anyone celebrate courts removing one of their rights???

     

    The modern world continues to confuse me...perhaps this is what it feels like to get old.

    Changing geography Russia and Norway and Canada should really benefit 

    Russia literally did an announcement on it: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/05/russia-announces-plan-to-use-the-advantages-of-climate-change

    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/12/16/magazine/russia-climate-migration-crisis.html

    Climate change denialists - basically supporting Russia's goals at this stage.

    The newest ones are switching to LNG, or now Bioethanol. In all the new ships they have scrubber systems that basically pull the most harmful things out, the ships are rightly so restricted in many parts of the world in terms of emissions and they are adapting well.

    Not convinced, sorry. Sounds like greenwash.
