  1. Reminds me of Anne Charnock's Dreams Before the Start of Time. I have a few questions regarding this future scenario. Will the sexbot will help raise the printed egg child in the woods shack? Or would you need to (using the money earned from your...woods job?) buy a nannybot as well? How pleasant will it be for a printed egg woods shack child to grow up without a mother? Fatherlessness is seemingly a problem in modern life with plenty of men abandoning their offspring or having them removed from their lives. Is motherlessness more palatable for children? Why not simply purchase a childbot, or if DNA replication is that important, offshore child rearing to a third-party provider in the developing world? In a wider context if men refuse to marry house-obsessed women, and thereby avoid being sucked into the vortex of womenomics, house prices will surely fall and there will be no need to live in the woods. Goodness, I can't wait for the future. It sounds wonderful.
  2. Just to add that bus drivers aren't always men. There's a couple of women drivers on my route. If they don't want to fire a women driver for getting pregnant and needing the loo more often then they have to provide toilets.
  3. Grass is always greener. I've lived in a few countries across the world and with every increase in one metric you have to suffer a decrease in another. Only billionaires get to have it all, insulated from catastrophe by money.
  4. The other classic response is, “Why don’t they just live in [X] where I have a mansion with room for 5 Bentleys.” People make their choices and have to live with them eh. *shrug*
  5. Rightmove - London - filter for house, min 2 max 2, 650k https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/map.html?locationIdentifier=REGION^93814&maxBedrooms=2&minBedrooms=2&maxPrice=650000&minPrice=500000&numberOfPropertiesPerPage=499&propertyTypes=detached%2Csemi-detached%2Cterraced&primaryDisplayPropertyType=houses&includeSSTC=false&viewType=MAP Peckham's a good bet.
  6. Depends on what you mean by decent. You can get a done up 2 bed terrace zone 2/3 easily.
  7. I think we talked about odds back in Jan. I should've done it then, you're right. When you tie 3 bulls to a tree stump and they all pull in different directions no one gets what they want. Good shout on Hammond, he seems to be slithering around unscathed.
  8. What do you reckon GD? My gut is telling me there's no way out of this deadlock. I'm not a natural gambler but when we run out of cheddar and cat food in a couple of months I'd like a winning stub to point to.
  9. Yes no one else has ever posted anything irrelevant to house prices and the economy on the great house price crash forum before Sorry if I get under your skin but you know, it's the internet. disobedient media indeed lol
  10. I should've bet on no deal a month ago. Def crashing out. 50% incompetence, 50% deliberate sabotage.
  11. What is this 'disobedient media'? Something like Infowars? Here's an article from USA TODAY. Indictment: Russians also tried to help Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein presidential campaigns Russian bots were pro Sanders in 2016. Being found innocent of collusion is a different matter entirely. It's also not over. They're at it again for 2020 But this time against Sanders. Poor old dude can't win! ‘Sustained and ongoing’ disinformation assault targets Dem presidential candidates
  12. Does council BTL have different rules to council housing? ie could they benefit from being able to evict bad tenants faster?
  13. Thanks for clarifying. I certainly don’t look negatively at people who go straight into the workforce. I now know a lot more about measures of poverty in the UK so appreciate everyone’s input on this thread. Which is not to say it isn’t a problem, only that I understand more about how the problem is measured. We still have a huge way to go to help underprivileged children avoid the poverty trap.
  14. Go on... It’s only an opinion piece and I’ve posted it because this is a house price crash forum. Saying the piece is wrong would hold more water if you cited references showing that population increases are unlinked to house price rises. Please go ahead
  15. I’d guess that their very targeted immigration is half the issue. They aren’t after low paid grunt workers (unlike us), they want peak earners - the kind of people with experience and kids - who buy houses. The expanse of land is tricky, they have massive sprawling suburbs filled with bungalows and large gardens, but the jobs require commuting, and the public transport is mediocre to poor. Cue traffic jams (in the heat) and frustrated locals.
  16. This is from the Spectator Australia and I might have followed the link from someone on here (sorry if posted already). What I think is interesting is that immigration is not really allowed to be mentioned in relation to house prices in the UK either but it stands to reason that a resource that everyone needs/wants will go up in value the more people there are to need/want it. Right? Australia actually seems far more addicted to the temporary uplift that inward migration yields. How long can it go on? I would have liked some citations in the opinion piece though. https://www.spectator.com.au/2019/02/immigration-the-house-price-elephant-in-the-room/
  17. Where did I mention anything to do with “thick” or “stupid”? If educational attainment is completely detached from earnings/wealth/poverty I’ll be keen to see the stats.
  18. It could also be to do with educational attainment (which is of course related to home life and culture and wealth as well). People who stay in education longer tend to have fewer children later, after earning more. People who go from school straight into child rearing are more fertile (fertility drops in women from 30) so more likely to have ‘accidents’ as well. If anyone has some stats to back to the economic recovery suggestionId appreciate it. It certainly seems to make sense - although as Brexit UK is in a downturn perhaps poverty will naturally drop in future?
  19. I can’t live in a van. I need to know there’s a comfortable private toilet available to me that I don’t have to empty afterwards.
  20. https://www.theguardian.com/money/2019/feb/17/high-rents-alternative-living-arrangements Just live in a van! #lifeontheroad
