  1. But property only ever goes up in value! House prices are worth more than they were 100 years ago! Etc etc..
  2. I'm really not sure. Either way if they think that their "We are on the side of the people" drivel will keep people happy as they nosedive into negative equity they're very wrong.
  3. I think that's the biggest thing from this leak. Gordon et al have spent months going on and on and on and on about how great the economy/housing market is. Now, in black and white, they're saying it's going to fall. All this and it's a sunny day as well.
  4. "Bum". There you go I said it. I dunno. I just can't see why people are getting so uptight about a bit of harmless fun on the board. Why shouldn't people be happy? Perhaps some of the old timers here preferred the miserable slog of the last few years and constant bad news and can't handle the celebrations?
  5. Teachers, Police Officers, Firemen, Nurses and Social Services workers. There's a bit of a misconception that working for a Council = key worker. This is not the case.
  6. I think I'll have to agree with the BBC on this one: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7387751.stm
  7. I'm sure Cambridge will continue to be Lib Dem, given that the City is full of tree hugging bed wetters.
  8. I don't think that'd matter. All they have to do is keep blaming the Government for lack of local Council funding. Labour have lost middle England. I'm quite looking forward to seeing if the press decide to stop backing Brown and start printing decent articles on our economy and the HPC.
  9. People who previously thought I should "get on the ladder at ANY cost" who have now said "You were right to wait": 1. My parents. 2. My sister (who is now NOT having a 60k extension put on her house as she's discovered that house prices are not "always going up"). 3. A couple of people I work with who were uber bulls until a couple of weeks ago.
  10. They're just winding you up. LJ has a rather... unique sense of humour.
  11. Yeah, it's quite weird. Normally the threads here are informative and a good read with a bit of banter. Whereas this one does seem to be touching a few nerves. Makes you wonder who the LL's are. Ah well. I'm leaving them to it as they're all far too mature for me and they've answered my question by not answering it (apart from BadHairDay who did, cheers for that it was appreciated.).
  12. I'll respond in the only way a young whipper snapper such as myself can:
  13. I was just writing a similar response! Edit: And now you've edited your response! Gah! *slaps Kuma*
  14. It was a serious question. Touch a nerve did I? The point of my question is that people are willing to turn a blind eye to one kind of fraudster and not another. I find that odd. Perhaps I need to grow up..
  15. Interesting thread. I take it that all of those defending private LL's also defend people claiming dole and doing cash in hand work?
  16. I thought it was an £850 a month increase? I could be wrong. Either way, like yourself, I couldn't understand how a mortgage from 1989 was increasing to the point of breaking them. Unless, of course, they've done lots of MEWing.
  17. I got the impression it was a "feature" she'd paid for. Btw, 3rd sexiest woman in the UK? Do these people get hard looking at Jabba the Hut?
  18. But Declan on the BBC said not to be alarmed or panic so I'm sure all is fine.
  19. Come to Cambridge, plenty to buy here. Also check out Leicester.
