  1. I haven't posted for quite a while due to a move to NZ in part to escape what appears may soon engulf much of Europe and the UK. Anyway settled in nicely, was able to buy a big 5 bed on an acre for £200k. Nice views, 5 minutes to surfing beach, ride on mower and broadband to keep up with the action back in the old country. So far its all worked out really well. NZ is remarkable for the open spaces and marked lack of something ...oh yes...people.
  2. James Tiberius - Don't be a fool. If you intend to buy the house and live in it as a home and not as an investment, and can afford it then buy it, today.
  3. Indeed. Their 'principles' seem to have taken a back seat to rampant HPI and other moneymaking opportunities.
  4. Britons 'attacked by Breton extremists' http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml...C-mostviewedbox Same old story. The correction will have a global reach. That's the thing about global villages..
  5. Is it time to have the Spring Bounce now?
  6. Everyone's an idiot except me.......[same old same old] Aren't 'human doings' just a sack of sh1t. I for one will bathe in the crash; like the crash was pure joy and I could wrap myself in it like a blanket. Gorgeous.
  7. It could be that in NZ house [asking] prices are aimed at 'rich' immigrants who have pockets stuffed with equity from a house sale? Just guessing.
  8. Since they don't use money in the 24th Century, I'm sure he'll be happy to hand over the keys to a needy FTB and in doing so 'enrich' himself. So much more beneficial to ones 'sense of well being' than having money. Folks in the 24thC are so evolved aren't they.
  9. The Blairite King is desperate to keep up her profile in the public eye and get the opportunity to stand again for a seat in Parliament after her humiliation against Galaway. The programme was low brow and predictable, neither party achieving any headway against the other. Typical white noise for a Monday evening. Utter Rubbish.
  10. The government have done what all governments do. That is talk, waste money on crackpot schemes and appeal to short termism and human greed. However this New model labour goverment have taken these characteristics to a new and dangerous level. They now find themselves backed into a corner leaving no room to manouvre the economy without causing the housing crash they are so desperate to avoid. Housing crash = Labour flung off into oblivion forever. (in addition they'll be lucky in that eventuality to get out of office in one piece)
  11. Are you Frank Grimes? Change the channel Marge.. If you're in Auckland NZ shouldn't you be in bed now getting some rest ready for your next day's thankless and back breaking toil?
  12. Liked the last bit of the programme about the Bulgarian family living in their one bedroom flat in Fulham. Their advice being to buy now and work seven days a week so your family can live forever in a one bed. Nice. What a fantastic prospect and what an achievement for government to have engineered this outcome for people. So much for social progress. Life was better in the 10th century! I also heard that a Scotish academic mentioned that there was growing concern with the state of housing in this 'country'. Mate, folks are way past concern.
  13. Wrong - the only thing that gets noticed by this government of hoodlems and snake oil salesmen is some type of direct action - see, front page.... http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-1255541,00.html Petitions are toilet paper (used)
  14. "Call it extreme if you like, but I propose we hit them hard and we hit them fast with a major - and I mean major - leaflet campaign, and while they're reeling from that we'd follow up with a whist drive, a car boot sale, some street theatre and possibly even some benefit concerts." Thanks to Red Dwarf
  15. Very suspicious that you were looking at their crotches, yes? What is happening to the members on this forum?
  16. ?????? Maybe they're gangstaz in Gay Land and might put the wind up the teletubbies but I don't think they'd worry any bloke with a pulse. However they must have some bottle driving around in an Aston Martin, I suppose they can get away with it in that London.
  17. I say let the UK economy power ahead. I admit defeat. I am foolish and stupid not to have seen what was about to happen to the cost of housing. So let house prices increase at 10-20% per year. Let interest rates fall to historic lows and stay there. Let your average 1 bed crap-hole start at £300K plus. Let there be a forever renting underclass and a superior, wealthy overlord class. Let more immigrants, legal or otherwise, into the country, why have an upper limit on numbers - the more the more oppertunities. I will however take myself and family far away from these shores and will never retur
  18. Sweet Jesus buddy calm down or you'll blow before you get to the ferry. In through the mouth out through the nose. I'm with you 100%. I have now convinced my other half that we must get out of this fracking frack hole before it goes over. Anyway I refuse to pay the comedy prices being asked for mearly average housing. I was today in the newsagents and over-heard three of the female staff having a chin wag about property for sale in the area and they were agreeing that one paticular house was much too cheap at 4 hundred, yes 400,000 of your English pounds. Am I really on the planet I thought I
  19. Housing 'fits' the British/English mindset resulting in this unhealthy obsession, in much the same way that Nintendos 'fit' the younger generation causing their obsession with electronic games. Maybe it's something to do with our climate, or the large population in such a small country. Maybe a genetic memory of the feudal past and thus the desire to grab a bit of the country for themselves before some other b'stard 'snaps' it up. Whatever it is it's not going to go away, indeed a crash will only temporarily dull the desire. The solution, imo, is a dramatic reduction in population size and gro
  20. I've always thought of Brown as a conman who has relied on the perception that a Scot must by his very nature be thrifty and sensible and thus the economy was safe in his hands. The reality is that you could have put a puffed up self important moron into Number 11 and he would have appeared to run the economy well due to the hard won healthy economic conditions inherited from the conservatives [oh hang on a minute they did]. However that healthy economic position, the beginning of prosperity and potential has now been squandered. Halfwits in pin stripe suits, highwaymen and snake oil salesman
  21. Buy when you are comfortable with the price. As long as you can pay the mortgage, with a reserve, then do it and forget about house prices. If you're not comfortable with the cost of a mortgage then continue to rent. How about moving to a cheaper area? Head North maybe even beyond Hadrian's wall - of course there be Dragons' there....
  22. Why bother? Typical formula. Bait -> smug response -> giggle -> feel better. It's great the interweb isn't it. Everyone's an idiot except you.
