  1. Is this what you're looking for? Sorry I don't know how to do that elegant linky thingy...... http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=68283&hl=luxury%20flats%20DSS%20chav&st=0
  2. I hope the eussr collapses with it, unlike some: If the euro collapses, Merkel warned, "then Europe and the idea of European union will fail." In her speech to guests gathered to honor this year's recipient of the award, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Merkel called on Europeans to come together, saying that deeper coordination of economic and finance policies is needed. "We have a common currency, but no common political and economic union," she said. "And this is exactly what we must change. To achieve this -- therein lies the opportunity of the crisis." European governments, she said, promised their citizens stability for the common currency, the euro, "and we must keep that promise." But not the promise of a referendum, or the promise to accept the vote of the people (Eire.... "No"..... so just keep asking and when you get a "yes", stop asking..... is that disgusting or what??)

  3. With deals like $8000 in credits, and $1500 free extras, and / or up to 60 months interest free credit..... it just makes me wonder how much profit they (should) have been making before! http://www.gm.ca/gm/
  4. I love the close up of the house number and the flower in the second example. Tells you so much about the house........
  5. Washington, D.C., May 9, 2010: “ Our pushing the fact that the mortgage “protection” service, MERS, is a Federal cover to keep homeowners from learning that their home or business mortgage has been so sliced and diced (and sold abroad) that no one with MERS “protection” will ever be able to get a clear title has brought forth a paniced response from the Obama administration. It is a form letter, to be signed by the sucker brigade and it won’t take a Harvard graduate to see that if you sign it, you are screwed to the wall and can never get your title. If you are dumb enough to sign this, you deserve what you get, buddy.” “Dear [borrower and Co-borrower name (s)] “If you are looking for help selling your home and avoiding foreclosure, the federal government has introduced the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) Program to help you. As your mortgage servicer, we are offering you the opportunity to participate in this program by utilizing HAFA’s short sale option.” It goes on to explain the program, and then at the bottom of page 3 of 7 it reads: “By signing this letter, you are agreeing not only to a short sale, but also to a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure if a short sale is not successful. If you have any questions about the deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, please call us before signing and returning this letter.]” We know from our studies that the odds of pulling off a short sale are remote because you are negotiating with the servicer, not the investor, and because of MERS, the investor can never be found. So, the Government is setting you up for hope in getting out of your house without having to go through a foreclosure, and then when you can’t (oh, too bad, we tried), you are forced to give it up. You are signing away all hope of fighting an illegal foreclosure. rest at: http://tbrnews.org/wordpress/?p=53
  6. As mentioned earlier, I think it's very alarming that some Britons feel more comfortable paying for bogus wars, foreign "aid", the eussr and banker's / public 'servant's' bonuses than British children's welfare. Weird.
  7. before we stop giving taxpayers money to British kids, I'd prefer to stop paying "donations" to places like India and China, that really son't need our help; then stop paying our fees to the eussr.... that'd save a fortune..... then look twice at how much we spend supporting useless wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, then look at bonuses given to public servants... etc. etc. There's a lot to be pruned before we start thinking of not helping to bring the kids up.....
  8. I'm in. Does anyone know how to start an epetition on yougov?
  9. There weren't many takers because although the house was 10 bucks, the 'council' taxes were much more, probably. It's why we will never get "off grid"......
  10. it is starting to exhibit the reflexes of tyranny. Starting to???? The outcome – un véritable gouvernement économique – will put Britain and the eurozone on such separate courses that it will amount to separation in all but name. The sooner we get the nastiness of divorce behind us, the better. Good idea!
  11. More here: http://www.icenews.is/index.php/2010/05/11/yet-another-day-of-iceland-banking-arrests/ Helgason and Karason were both very near the top of the Kaupthing chain-of-command and worked closely with former Director, Hreidar Mar Sigurdsson and Sigurdur Einarsson, the former Chairman of the Board. It is not yet known whether the Special Prosecutor will allow the pair to be released, or if he will request that the Reykjavik District Court remand them in custody, as happened with Sigurdsson and Magnus Gudmundsson (former CEO of Kaupthing Luxembourg), Visir.is reports. Hreidar Mar Sigurdsson and Magnus Gudmundsson were arrested last Friday and remain in the Litla Hraun prison; but Sigurdur Einarsson has not obeyed the Special Prosecutor’s summons to return to Iceland for interrogation this Friday – despite a promise that he would not be arrested upon arrival. He has, however, invited the Special Prosecutor, Olafur Thor Hauksson to fly out and interrogate him in the UK.
  12. My brain hurts.... what does it mean??
  13. THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION IS A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE The subject-matter of the speech was that since the European Commission's accounts have not been APPROVED by the European Union Collective's own Court of Auditors based in Luxembourg for 14 years, the European Commission is a criminal enterprise. This was specifically reconfirmed for us by an official at the Court of Auditors named Novaks, in person. A senior official named Craig with the UK Serious Fraud Office confirmed separately that it is a criminal offence for taxpayers' funds to be remitted into the hands of a criminal enterprise. GOVERNMENT TRANSFERS OF VAT RECEIPTS TO BRUSSELS ARE ILLEGAL This being the case, the British and other EU 'Member States'' satrap Governments are knowingly engaged in the criminal act of illegally transferring UK taxpayers' funds to a criminal enterprise, which in turn implies that VAT taxpayers can sue their Governments for the recovery of their funds which have been remitted contrary to the law into foreign criminal accounts. The Editor recommends that (in the UK context: other EU satrap 'Member States' can do as they please), an IMMEDIATE STOP MUST BE ORDERED TO THIS OFFICIAL CRIMINAL PRACTICE and that 100% of UK VAT accruals be diverted FORTHWITH into a special Treasury account sine die. 'CLEAN UP YOUR ACCOUNTS TO OUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION WITHIN ONE YEAR, OR WE KEEP THE LOT' The European Commission should be told that the British authorities expect a total rehabilitation and clean-up of ALL EC accounts for the past 14 years to be implemented, accompanied by the necessary overdue criminal investigations and prosecutions, with the outcomes to be approved not only by the Court of Auditors but also to the complete satisfaction of the authorities in London; and that if this is not done within one calendar year of the Brussels Commission being so advised, all accumulated and future VAT receipts will be annexed to offset the colossal indebtedness of the British Government incurred under Gordon Brown's incompetent tenure. The advantage of this approach is that this will be a unilateral measure by the British Government, overriding all the convoluted Talmudic claptrap and diversionary self-serving, deliberately opaque verbiage routinely spewed out by the Eurocrats in order to erect a bureaucratic smokescreen to separate the Commission from meaningful scrutiny of its institutionalised criminality. Any comments, anyone? Is the above far fetched? http://www.worldreports.org/news/288_endemic_corruption_in_brussels_and_halliburton
  14. Oh, I think I've found an answer.... OUTCOME OF THE BRITISH GENERAL ELECTION: TEMPORARY CHECK MATE It is hard to imagine a recipe more likely to morph into a pretext for the wholesale overthrow of the complacent and self-satisfied British political and bureaucratic Establishment. We have obtained a glimpse of the instability to come following the inconclusive outcome of the General Election held on 6th May 2010, following years of Brown's financial mismanagement and parliamentary sleaze. The Conservatives could have won the election with an overall majority had they not long since decided to pretend that the issue of Britain’s hugely expensive and sterile relationship with the European Union Collective, involving the illegal remittance of Value Added Tax receipts to the European Commission, a criminal enterprise given that its accounts have been explicitly NOT approved by the Luxembourg-based Court of Auditors for the past 14 years [report of 2nd May 2010], is a non-issue for public consumption and electoral purposes. Calculations based on votes cast prepared by the former MEP for South-East England, Ashley Mote, have revealed as follows: • The Conservatives could have had a comfortable working majority if they had made an unequivocal commitment to a referendum on British membership of the EU. • The UKIP (United Kingdom Independence Party) vote, favouring a much harsher policy towards Britain’s sterile EU participation, would have collapsed and, while not every one of the 25 seats listed below might have been delivered to the 'Conservatives', they would have emerged with a working majority of about 40. In the following table of constituences where the 'Conservatives' came second, the first number shown represents the winner's majority, and the second number shown represents the UKIP vote: Bolton West 92 901 Derby North 613 829 Derbyshire North East 2445 2636 Dorset Mid 269 2109 Dudley North 649 3267 Great Grimsby 714 2043 Hampstead and Kilburn 42 408 Hull North 641 1358 Middlesbrough South 1677 1881 Morley and Outwood 1101 1506 Newcastle-Under-Lyme 1552 3491 Norwich South 310 1145 Oldham East 103 1720 Plymouth Moor 1588 3188 Rochdale 889 1999 Sheffield Central 165 652 Solihull 175 1200 Somerset and Frome 1817 1932 Southampton and Itchen 192 1928 St Austell and Newquay 1312 1757 St Ives South 1719 2560 Swansea West 504 716 Walsall North 990 1737 Walsall South 800 1711 Wirral South 531 1274 Additionally, the Conservatives should have won Wells, which was lost to the Liberal Democrats with a majority of 800. But the UKIP vote was 1711; so including the promise of a referendum on Britain’s continued sterile membership of the EU could have secured this seat as well. The Guardian reported on 8th May 2010 that ‘UKIP’s bid to beat the Speaker’ (who is traditionally unopposed by the main parties) in Buckingham, ended in third place. Lessons for the Conservative right, there, perhaps, if they think they can win by tacking to the extremes’. But the data displayed above reveal that this assessment is the very reverse of the truth. If the ‘Conservatives’ had accommodated the known preferences of adherents of the United Kingdom Independence Party, they would have achieved a comfortable working majority and would not have found themselves on the edge of a deep abyss, as was the case as this report closed. http://www.worldreports.org/news/289_biden_geithner_emanuel_taking_bush_srs_bribes
  15. Britain's markets are likely to be hit because of political uncertainty, but London should not rely on EU help if it suffers a financial crisis, the head of the French financial markets watchdog said on Tuesday. Skip related content Jean-Pierre Jouyet, who was European affairs minister from 2007-2008, told Europe 1 radio that Britain's refusal to sign up to a $1 trillion (674 billion pound) package to stabilise the euro showed that the European Union had now fragmented into three distinct groups. "There is not a two speed Europe but a three speed Europe. You have Europe of the euro, Europe of the countries that understand the euro ... and you have the English," he said. "The English are very certainly going to be targeted given the political difficulties they have. Help yourself and heaven will help you. If you don't want to show solidarity to the euro zone, then let's see what happens to the United Kingdom," he added. A British parliamentary election last week failed to produce an outright winner and the two main rival political parties are trying to woo the smaller Liberal Democrats to agree a power-sharing deal. Against this backdrop of political uncertainty, London told its EU partners at the weekend that it would not provide support for the euro, which has been battered by the Greek debt crisis. The move clearly irritated some French officials, who have been quick to point out that both Poland and Sweden, which are not in the euro zone, agreed to help finance a 60-billion-euro stabilisation fund for euro zone states in difficulty. Text is all in this post but here's the link..... http://uk.news.yahoo.com/22/20100511/tuk-uk-france-britain-markets-fa6b408.html There will be enormous pressure on camergoon to join the euro...... will he resist? Does he love this country enough? Or will he sell more of England, by the pound?
  16. The purpose of this project is to present the analysis of the empirical data What's the goal?
  17. I think you should keep your "precious" to yourself, or at least between you and your leather clad partner, Mr. Masked Tulip.
  18. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. As an expat Brit, I can reliably inform you that the NHS puts medi-care in Canada (OK, Quebec) to shame, Britain's public transport network puts that available in Quebec to shame, British TV is miles ahead of that over here, British roads are glass compared to the crumbling tracks in Quebec and "customer service" in the UK means what it says (or it did when I was last there) as opposed to the vacuous 'have a nice day' mentality of people over here. I could go on and on.... but what I'm trying to impress on those who would quit the UK is..... do some research!
  19. Oh dear, found at Old Holborn..... UPDATE: Hearing rumours that Brown will resign this afternoon and Harman will head up a Lib/Lab coalition http://www.oldholborn.net/
