  1. Who would then provide properties for rent? There is still a need for rental property
  2. Typical. You know nothing about me or 4x4 yet you judge. Shows character.
  3. Totally agree with you on the H2. It is a crap car and is just a piece of bling for tasteless footballers. Built by the yanks on the chassis of the old Chevy Tahoe which was too crap even for the yanks. Re the rest of 4x4's, dont judge what you dont understand
  4. You have an elevated driving position in a Renault Scenic and a ford transit. The 4x4 we have does 40mpg. My rx8 does about 18mpg. A good point of 4x4's is that they are well suited for the poor condition of UK roads.
  5. A 4x4 is not more unstable than a normal car. Stability boils down to more than just the centre of gravity. Chassis, stability control, suspension, tyres all dictate the road holding of a vehicle. Re skidding, the 4x4 tends to come with safety devices such as ABS and brake assist. I am a petrol head and I chose this car as it was ideal for what we needed with its reliability, practicality, economy, safety, space and resale value. People who moan about 4x4 have never owned one or really looked into them.
  6. The program seemed to cover a lot of the aspects of the current housing market but there was a lack of coverage on any possible housing crash. All the program did was demonstrate the lunacy of the current housing problems in the UK. No real program has covered this subject with any detail. The max coverage on the media seems to be 5 mins on sky with financial planner
  7. This news is over 20 years old. Having worked in this industry since leaving school, I can say that UK manufacturing has been in recession for decades
  8. Hardly inspiring at all. Reading between the lines "we think we are shagged"
  9. Its proven that CO2 does rise with temperature but does not mean that CO2 caused the rise in temperature
  10. Not if you tell him its his round As its in london, not much chance with them drinking shandy
  11. Maybe we are misunderstanding each other then My grumble is people using the 4x4 as a target for global warming. Totally misguided. Re global warming, it is being used an excuse for additional taxation with the argument of it being an ethical tax. Its just a tax against motorists. Its a long debate that wont be resolved on a single thread or post.
  12. I wont be dictated to by the Ken Livingstones of this world and I wont be berated and judged by someone who knows nothing about me and then takes a smug attitude about it. The fact that it has not effect on you shows what a shell you live in.
  13. How do i p1ss it up the wall. Another green goblin who thinks they know it all but knows nothing. You know nothing about me so to make those comments demonstrates what a t1t you are. Its not the most expensive car i can afford, I paid cash for them, i pay no company car tax and i have cars that suit our needs. I will be sure to tip my hat to you when i pass you in your solar powered car. Numpties like you make me feel smug
  14. Another misguided tree hugger who wants to dictate to everyone else what they should and shouldn't do. How is the 4x4 more polluting than a normal car? Get your facts straight and then i might take you seriously.
  15. If the effects are being felt in the housing market, repossessions dont happen overnight. For a house to be repossessed takes quite a few months at least (depending on the lender). Applications have to made to court etc. There was a brief report on five live this morning that i caught briefly. The guest speaker said that mortgage companies work closely with the borrower to work things out so they can avoid losing their home. If they have already fallen into trouble with repayments, they will find the future harder when they are playing catchup on their mortgage and they then have a black mar
  16. Its the same footprint as a car. Just a little higher I will decide whats best for my kids
