  1. Just a glove Puppet,, Blair was selling us short for years,, house price increase the only way anyone made any money in the UK over the last 10 years.. Those days are gone,,,
  2. Lets get this party started,, We've had 2 years to get the house in order, but many just took the advantage and kept spending. If you have a house, with a massive mortgage, you should of sold it over the last 2 years... Now the time comes to throw back the keys... Interest 5% = 40% off current prices This will be good for all of us in the long run,, cheap money / debt is not.
  3. One day people will wake up to how the majority of the globabl population live, till then we will keep exporting or labour requirements so we can import cheap goods.
  4. Interesting whats happening to LLOYDS,, wonder if Tax Payers will end up owning more if the price falls to 40 Again?
  5. Period of 5,000 to 4,000 was very quick,, will the same happen again ?
  6. I also have the bulk of savings 165k, with a Santander owned bank. Why,, Because they offer what I want. goodbye A&L, BB, and Abbey... They can shut at least two of the three branches in every town and city, convert the brand to Santander. For daily banking I use llyodstsb and natwest.
  7. Gordon's solution would be just to pay everyone more through inflationary tools..
  8. no boom, no bust....

  9. On a recent poll on UK most hated man , Gordon was more hated than serial killer Ian Huntley. Thank Bob, (The Slackmaster) labour will be gone within 9 months...
  10. Seriously is about 100 people the best labour could muster from S Brown's twitter group.
  11. I got the email offering a free mac donalds voucher is you turned up to some thing on the Seafront... But seeing as I'm not into plastic food with a hint of politcal marketing I deleted the mail for the spam it was.
  12. Point 1, yep true,, but get the girl pregnant and you have to get married... Just a certificate, not a prision sentance Point 2, I have 500 labours working for me, don't tar every picture with them same brush.. We keep the happy or they go to the labour department who have plenty of new fines... Point 3, Yep Tue,, so you believe in free press in the UK,, hahhahahaaa The system here is know, nobody trusts gulfnews.com Point 4, where is truely safe, as a percentage Dubai is probably the same as the UK
  13. Yep that was happeing 10 years ago, but Dubai faced it demons... Dubai has gone from Victorian Age to Modern Times age in 20 years,,, Arab's are with the west, why do you want to kick every achievement in the nuts.. Seems to me, many are convince themselves the grass is toxic on the other side..
  14. Yep, he probably won't... If he's a hard worker, he will probably be rewarded for being great,, Unlike the UK Goverment who reward the slack... Damn, who do you thinks going pay your pension when all the educated have gone..
  15. The negative opinions on this thread remind me how not so great British we are.. I see some envious post of hate, but then thats always been the way on Housepricecrash... The have's, fighting the have not's.. I've worked hard for years, if I come back to the UK and buy a new car luxury car, people will automatically judge me. As to the slave trade posts,, If a labour want's to leave, he now can... Yes how people are treated here if different, but its far better than their home country.. UK companies for years have been exporting the jobs oversa that they couldn't do cheapily in the Europe.. Make it in Asia, customer service in India... We are still acting as the slave master but from overseas.. PRIME EXAMPLE.. BT customer call centers in India.. BT want to bring them back,, Unions in UK up in arms, " no one will work these hours, for those wages...", " I'd rather be on the dole " ... UK customer " I'm not paying anymore in my bill "... What are you going to do if China stops exporting,, UK Manufacturing is almost gone,, The mindset of hard work for low wages has been exported by UK companies for years... The world cannot live like the west,,, personal I support Greenpeace and WWF, for the rights of the planet and all its inhabinates. Rather than hating people for how they think, I try my hardest to change attitudes.. But on some people I can see its hopeless.
  16. No existant now,,, in Dubai I actual work with Channel 4 dispatches.. Dubai Goverment put its foot firmly Down as UN also gave it pressure on this. Prisions for the scammers and cheats are getting full though...
  17. I don't disagree, P.S You would make a great Emirati Spokes Person.... I work currently with 26 Nationalities, the history I love most is in the individuals story.. Back to Topic,, Dubai has gone through a massive correction.. Investors have suffered.. Here are my thoughts It feels to me currently we hit the surface of something... But the surface is a muddy squishy mess that we are slowly sinking in.. At some point we will actually hit a firm surface. The problem is when you stand in that kind of sinking sand, you can't just pull your foot out without risk of losing your shoe. If in real sinking sand we are told to lay flat and try and crawl or roll out. The surface hit... Banks are willing to lend again, but you need 20% deposit and have a regular salary above 15K. Interest Rates where never fiddled with thus you can get around 8% at best. This criteria will only improve, but slowly... The sinking Supply is going to be an issue, I recon the majority of investors are going to face some financing issues as they expected to get out before the handover. Developers still have stock of units coming to completion, but are reluctant to cancel.. I believe cityscape will pass with no significant mention as advertising budgets are close to zero. What we need is growth, that’s what made Dubai. Attracting foreign companies, longer residence for home owners... When I came to Dubai, it had good quality of life, a buzz was in the air and many opportunities to be had. Today that quality of life is returning but very few opportunities are available. I like many still have some doubt on its future, count the fills,, even at Spinneys I want my 25fills... I can't see us ever returning to the 04-08 period, maybe things will be like the 01-04 period,, but I wasn't here then... Many questions aren’t even asked, the culture of avoiding talking about the bad doesn’t solve the issues. Leaving a job undone, never makes the job done.. I always get told there is a plan, some new leadership from the top,, but I haven’t seen that action as of yet, maybe this is a good time to use inshallah.
  18. Sorry Winkie,, Yawn........... As I said, if you don't want to come and see, stick to Italy.. Problem is, done it, seen it, eat it and smelt it.... plenty of times.. It expensive, rubbish hotels and dirty,,, Maybe you would like Sharjah instead.... (just -expensive) Or maybe you should see what the biggest names in Italian Fashion are doing today http://www.palazzoversace.ae/ http://www.armanihotels.com/en/index.html Both are here in Dubai...
  19. Strange how history repeats itself.. 100 years ago Supertax introduced / Surtax In 1929, Supertax (which had been introduced in the Finance Act 1909 at the rate of 6 old pence in the pound (2.5%) on incomes over 5000 per year) was renamed Sur-tax. By 1934, the rate was variable from 1 shilling to 7 shillings and sixpence in the pound (5% to 37.5%). http://richard-wilson.blogspot.com/2009/03...urtax-bill.html As you may have already read a new bill sets a 90% surtax on those who earn more than $250,000 a received a bonus from a firm which took in over $5B in federal aide. Here are some quotes from Dealbreaker, Fintag and Obama on the issue. (90% Tax on incomes above 150K a year, here we come)
  20. Dubai is not just a City, it is one of many Emirates. The UAE population may only be around 5 Million, so its hard to compaire.. thriving, living and breathing... That would be extremely true of Karma, Satwa and Bur Dubai... Here, I even made this video for you as an education
  21. Please do give it a miss if thats your perception,, maybe it's artificial,, but hell,, which city isnt... Well accept my home town/ now city of Brighton/Hove..
