    Do they know it's Christmas?

    Tell that to schrodinger's cat

    Interest Rates

    Yes just like he said they would go immediately up if we voted for Brexit. In case you have short term memory loss they did the exact opposite. The media should rip this guy a new ringpiece the shite he talks. But no...they just let him get away with it. HE MUST be laughing his head of at the end of every day at how stitch up the proles are. NO ONE out there to hold him to task for us.
  3. Reading that they should have been tortured for a few months first until they pleaded to be executed then tortured them for a few months more then execute them.
  4. We are heading into a Grand Solar Minimum. We need to increase CO2 emissions. Unless you want to go skating on the Thames in April of course.

    DOW falls 1100 points

    All FANGs gone bear. They could fall 80% and still be overpriced.

    Game, Set, Match - Central Banks

    The IMF is obsessed with crypto. They've seen the light.
  7. Very interesting substituting the word 'Bubble' for 'Bust'. What's all that about? Boy can you smell the fear.
  8. OR more accurately: The government, which has spent the last 15 years creating policy to pump house prices into the stratosphere, while at the same time creating a low wage economy, stressed the housing benefit taxpayer cash transfer to buy to let landlords was all of its own making. The government also stressed that since the very same policy makers and their friends were in most cases buy to let landlords themselves, the situation will be tolerated.
  9. Switching to means testing for these benefits is massively significant. Another big UC change for those that have pumped out kids for the tax credits is that both parents now have to work. You cannot have one parent working 16 hours a week with the other sitting at home watching Jeremy Kyle. They BOTH have to get out there or get sanctioned. I fecking love UC. It is going to be a huge shock to some families I know. They have no marketable skills. Only any good at reproduction and working the system. Tax credits have been like reverse eugenics.
  10. More BBC house price ramping, they don't want distressed sales they want these people to receive a taxpayer bail-out. If the mortgage terms do not suit these borrowers then they can switch providers, it's a free market. If they cannot switch then there is a reason - like they are high risk. And no Panorama, they cannot have the 'best rates'. Why should the feckless, who by their own admission are struggling, get the best rates? Feck 'em all - these people in collusion with the likes of Northern Rock have turned us all into debt slaves. I hope the markets burn 'em - burn 'em good.

    What/who will collapse first in 2018

    WTF? Benefit tourists from the EU do not come here for 'JSA'. They come for tax credits and Free housing. Biased Guardian clap-trap.
  12. The BBC love immigration. They are an immigration VI. It means more money. The BBC is fixed, with no increasing expenses as the population increases, yet they are able to demand the licence fee from each new household. As the population increases the licence fee should go down. Instead we get a double whammy – they have more households to sponge off and they demand a higher fee to boot. This is the core reason behind the pro-immigration, anti-Brexit stance of this organisation. The situation is ludicrous. They have to switch their funding model to pay per view.
  13. Are there no moderators on this forum? can you cull this music garbage from the thread? I'm on advert clicking strike 'til it's sorted.
  14. Next recession will be brutal. Especially for the high street if it's struggling now and when we have (allegedly) full employment and ultra low interest rates. Lenders getting twitchy. They know what's coming down the pipe: https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/uk-high-street-slowdown-stretching-banks-provisioning-limits-101815044--sector.html
