  1. I was planning to retire at 55 but retired at the grand old age of 47.
  2. That's lots then. Like a trillion light years to our nearest space persons. the mind keeps boggling
  3. They need to install a strong natural leader to control all the tribes in Iraq. Someone like Saddam Hussein
  4. and another +1 from me. It really is all going to end in tears
  5. Not one single expert saw it coming. I went into cash in dec 2006 and survived with profits. Any financial advisor that was any good would have made his pile and retired years ago . Any financial advisor who has to work for a living must be suspect
  6. Read my sig below. I now have more money than I know what to do with. Charts are nonsense. If not everyone would be a winner. Those who followed the charts in 2007 lost fortunes.
  7. seems a waste of a good quality sheet. Buy some old curtains from a charity shop
  8. organised a couple of funerals last month. they come in at around £3k a pop. Not bad really when you break it down.
  9. That's when people knew their place and were happy with their lot. Today people aspire to own a property but are not prepared to pay much for it. What on earth is the attraction ? In the fifties a few lowly paid white collar workers would virtually live from hand to mouth all their lives in order to say they were buying a house. Kippers and curtains are what the renters called them.
  10. Good god. That was a blast from the past. I thought it was only me that remembered that . It was the last time life seemed normal in the UK
  11. At least I now know that LTV is a blue liquid and a deposit is some olive oil on the top
  12. I have four nearly new bricks in the back garden. Perhaps I should put them on eBay and cash in.
  13. http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/birmingham-police-chief-landlady-benefits-6521481 Look how much this woman is getting paid for an unskilled job
  14. Interesting http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25663872
  15. Its alright for you youngsters. Us oldies are expected to manage on £200 winter fuel allowance. What a joke. It just about pays for a tank full of petrol for my Jaguar XJR 4.2 supercharged 400bhp chariot . It should be increased to £300 so that I can also fill up the tank on my 4.2 supercharged land cruiser. What's the problem ? 90% ends back up at the treasury through fuel taxation and vat. Its a win win situation.
  16. + 10 Why on earth would any European want to come over to this sh**hole ?
  17. I suspect this position is also reflected across the entire rented sector. I can feel a HPC coming within the next couple of years
  18. Much tighter controls today. Lenders are also tightening up on ability to pay which is bad news for those who need to re-mortgage. I predict a UK property crash within the next two years. That's not good for me though because my house was paid for long ago. Younger people need to keep the faith.
  19. Liar loans coming home to roost http://www.bbc.co.uk...ngland-25433940
  20. Surely there are more important things to pay for over xmas than the rent. Only 46% of tenants in arrears so what's all the fuss about ? Its the season to be jolly so **** the rent http://www.bbc.co.uk...london-25428796
