  1. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7862696.stm All that gas can come from our rubbish! Gas from waste could heat almost half the homes in the UK, according to a new report from National Grid.
  2. Yup. Trams to Oldham. Originally yes. Then no. Then govt says yes again. Then the joiny up bit is dependent on congestion yes vote which doesn't happen - so the town centree of Oldham is skirted by the tram rather than included.
  3. It's not news though is it. It's like saying that not teaching manners means children are rude.
  4. I would have thought the closure of several car plants and factories was a great thing for ensuring power for the rest of us through this cold snap.
  5. We could call it .... oooooooo let's see.... Bank of England? Nah we've got one of those and I don't know what good it's done us.
  6. Some of us workers have also done voluntary work. If you really wanted to do voluntary work you'd find time.
  7. It's pretty shocking - and needs sorting out. Educating people about saving is a good idea. It horrifies me when people (still) ask about buying a house with no deposit. Why can't they save a deposit? Do they have no savings? What happens is they need some extra cash? Does mr creditcard come out?
  8. Maybe the aim is to have every UK person unemployed on the dole and have all the work done by immigrants. All that leisure time - enjoy it!
  9. I don't understand what this government is aiming to do. If would be politer if they just came and ripped the savings out of ours hand and spit in our faces than mess about doing it piecemeal.
  10. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jan/3...er-six-children It did start in America. Only a country that allows a woman with 6 children to have fertility treatment could be responsible for the global mess. OT from HP I know -
  11. Well luckily we have some buses and things. You don't need to park one outside your house.
  12. Would have to appear that way...
  13. If they build high quality low cost houses with gardens and keep rents at the same levels at the council (£75 a week for a 3 bed house with drive and gardens) then that's fine. And as long as they don't build on the remaining playing fields and parks.... OR they could cut out the building and just enforce low rents in the private sector. If a landlord defaults the banks give the house to the council. I can imagine if they do build any it'll all be immigrant labour houses in floating hotels...
  14. Alarming number of SSTC on my daily search. Lots of houses at the cheaper end have got cheaper - which is some of the SSTC but also some bigger semis selling... These new builds are quite near me and are on the busy busy road - none sold yet. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sa...yPartRent=false How does the 10 year guarantee work? Does it start when the building was finished? (Earliest rightmove is June 08 but I think they were on before that and have been took off a second time to refresh the prices) Previous new build flats in the area have gone to rent - think they sold one -
