  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 - And the most expensive house was reduced from 550 to 500 and is now disappeared this week. I assume no one wants to pay half a million to live virtually opposite these shiny new builds on the busiest road in the area (excluding the m60 of course) Summary of Properties Sold in OL9 in October 2008 Total properties sold: 29 Average price of properties sold: £117,426 Property Sale Prices by Type in OL9 in October 2008 No. of properties Average* price Median* price Flat 4 £131,125 £112,500 Detached 2 £126,250 £126,250 Semi-detached 8 £122,900 £120,000 Terraced 15 £109,677 £95,000 Summary of Properties Sold in OL9 in October 2007 Total properties sold: 51 Average price of properties sold: £106,999 Property Sale Prices by Type in OL9 in October 2007 No. of properties Average* price Median* price Flat 2 £59,190 £59,190 Detached 3 £131,500 £132,000 Semi-detached 20 £123,937 £126,475 Terraced 26 £94,820 £86,500 Summary of Properties Sold in M40 in October 2008 Total properties sold: 26 Average price of properties sold: £121,223 And nearby Moston Property Sale Prices by Type in M40 in October 2008 No. of properties Average* price Median* price Flat - - Detached 3 £216,967 £208,950 Semi-detached 9 £157,772 £147,500 Terraced 14 £77,211 £74,000 Summary of Properties Sold in M40 in October 2007 Total properties sold: 46 Average price of properties sold: £100,203 Property Sale Prices by Type in M40 in October 2007 No. of properties Average* price Median* price Flat 1 £235,500 £235,500 Detached 1 £172,000 £172,000 Semi-detached 14 £110,279 £109,250 Terraced 30 £88,598 £85,000
  15. It's only permission isn't it? Not actually the cold hard cash? It'll get shelved and only get build when they can make obscene profits.
  16. They never build in provision to manage the extra people with more doctors or anything. I think it's 1 GP for 4000 people isn't it? SO you'd be pressurising services a lot if nothing extra gets added. Near me they knocked down a council run care home about 2 years ago (Opposite the Broadway Pub in Moston) - they're just starting work on that now and they're building a care home... stating in the blurbs that "recently council owned care homes have been closed in the area"
  17. Seriously ring the sun. They pay good cash for this shocker of a story The fastest way is to call our journalists on 0207 782 4100 (from outside the UK dial 0044 207 782 4100). You don't need to worry about the cost of the call either - as we'll call you back right away! We'll tell you immediately if we like your story and, if appropriate, give you an idea of what it could be worth. You can also email us on [email protected] or text us on 63000. Remember to include a phone number - preferably a mobile - where we can call you back. How much is my story worth? A big exclusive used on the front page could be worth thousands of pounds, but a smaller story will be worth less. The only way to find out how much YOU could make is to call us now. But remember - don't tell another newspaper. Your story is worth much more if you only tell The Sun.
  18. Equally - no actually more unfortunate - the prudent who've saved are getting screwed over too now... I almost feel sad I've not frittered my money away on crap, gadgets and dvds, sparkly new car, luxurious holidays and run up massive debt.
  19. A friend popped in last night and told me a friend of hers is looking to get into BTL or developing. I nearly choked. I pointed out that there was a glut of to let properties at the moment and getting a tenant would be tricky. It's going to take a while to get out of people's heads that its a good thing.
  20. Absolutely and the company can charge them for the accomodation through all their wages ... bet it's got a bar and everything they need...
  21. They're living in a floating hotel. It all seems really mad.
  22. This is one of my favourite ones of the gone wrong .... but I also love that french house and the northumberland ruin... but for entirely different reasons!
  23. A friend told me of a couple of suicides on the street next to her and I swear my initial thought was "oo they might want to sell up - cheap houses! " Terrible isn't it!
  24. I tried to buy a smart ages ago and they just weren't interested ...
