    Brexit - Are You Having Regrets? -- Multiple Merged

    I wonder if any of the 12 who voted Yes to having regrets would explain why? I'm interested to know what has changed for them.

    Black Friday

    Thank God. And good to see the German ministers' shock! They've had an easy ride for too long.
  3. Don't worry - asked and answered with a visit to the area.
  4. Just having a little bumble through the lanes around Haverfordwest today and I was taken aback by the number of properties on the market. It's not an area I usually look at - generally I'm driving through en route to the West, but I wonder if anyone here has any local knowledge of the village Hook, or other communities in the area? It seems a bit of a dormitory - linear settlement without a nucleus... is that unfair or accurate? Do people live here or holiday? Thanks - as ever I'm grateful for your insights.

    What's Your Plan B

    What is your retirement plan? I'm interested to know where long-term renters plan to live. Those with a paid-off mortgage do seem much better off come retirement. And, cards on the table, we STR'd in 2003 (if only we'd known!).

    Greed Or Rank Stupidit?

    The house This little ill-formed monster sits near Milford Haven has been lingering since last April. The price has zipped up and down, up and down, but clearly they've had no takers yet. The bizarre asymetric structure won't be to everybody's taste, and when you look at the history you can see it was bought in 2004 for £83k but they marketed it at £180k! Sheer greed, or rank stupidity? Do you think they've mewed the extra £100k, or do they think they deserve it?
  7. Damn, Macbeth... I can never scrub that image from my eyes!
  8. You forgot the 'gain 3 stone\ lose 2 stone \ sell a fitness CD \ rinse and repeat' meme.
  9. +1 Time to bring serious consequences for feckless people who shamelessly exploit bankruptcy. It's just too easy to do this repeatedly and it is the rest of us who end up paying for it.
  10. This thread is both illuminating and depressing. Why do we have a need to prescribe a single solution to other peoples' lives? Surely none of us really believe that one size fits all? And why is there this need to judge other peoples' choices if they don't directly impinge on your own? Struck to by the emotive language in the article: 'deserting' the workplace? Why not just 'leaving'? 'Plunged'? Why not just 'fallen'? Plenty of people in both camps making all kinds of choices for reasons not reflected in the article or the discussion. Odd to be prescribing solutions on the basis of so little information.

    Nigel Farage V Louise Cooper On Daily Politics

    It completely undermines their position to keep using emotive language - for example when the presenter was talking of contributors 'screaming'. It is unprofessional, embarrassing and does a great disservice to those women who quietly and professionally get on with their roles. It is wrong to suggest that there is no inequality, however as mentioned above there is a conflation of ideas about equality and equality of opportunity. I understood Cooper to be addressing the wrong argument (and completely missing Farage's point) due to her own bias and single-agenda focus. This sort of flapping nonsense gives the rest of us a bad name.

    The Last Seven Days....

    My eldest was 5 when we STR'd: he has just turned 17. Take care to choose wisely... I'm not sure that we did.

    Self Build Boom - Future Trend 2014

    Really interesting and worth a bump... thanks for posting it.
  14. Great first post, Dweller... welcome to the board. You sound as though you know more than you appreciate. And I agree, he could just be stating the bleeding obvious, but if a credibly somebody does that loudly enough and often enough for it to slip into MSM then that is all to the good as a counter to the group think we usually read of and in managing sentiment.
