  1. They still can't force entry though into private homes. Only hope they have then is a car that is not financed parked near the debtors home. And at the end of the day they are business people themselves. It needs a lot of high value stuff not only to settle the debt but to pay their own fee's. Only worth using against business, or against tenants where you need a speedier eviction.
  2. Oh he's very easily upset is that one. We haven't seen eye to eye on things for sometime. I think I blocked him on Twitter
  3. Loved wonderpup and his topics which were all basically the same. Hope he's still here
  4. If you are a business then you are a sitting duck for bailiffs. They can even use reasonable force to enter the premises. Everyone else, my advise is. Don't open the door. They don't have half as much power as they think they have. And some of those scenes on the show I suspect are staged
  5. All the problems with the UK are down to the UK. The Tories just love to sell everything off and this is what happened. We were not forced to sell our utilities off to foreign rentiers. The failure is entirely Tory. Now we are leaving the EU, who you gonna blame now? The EU, immigrants, single women on tax credits? its never a fecking Tory is it? If I were a senior Tory I'd have an overnight bag packed at all times and a fast car readied for the airport. Things are going to get ugly
  6. not so much immigrants but 40 years of Thatcherite failure that has resulted in low investment low productivity crapitalism, which just so happens needs lots of low paid immigrants. Fix the economic system. We used to build our own nukes in this Country but thanks to Blue Reich, now need to borrow off the commies to lend to the French to build them for us. Total fail If you are going to run the economy like Mogadishu, this is what you get. We used to have high tech mills here in the North. Now dance studio's and car washes. Oh but I'm forgetting the Tory success. Ex Council shitholes in Delapre Northampton now go for £250K apparently. What a success story.
  7. I offered on Twitter to run naked down Regent Street if Carney hiked so I'm hoping not either
  8. Don't quite agree with what you are saying. The Council is saying the investment in the Elizabeth Line will inflate prices (they are correct it will). They want their share rather that these windfall gains being trousered by speculators who have done fook all to fund Crossrail. Basically Land Value Capture and I'm all for it. Same in Manchester where all the carpet baggers are moving in expections of making huge gains from the back of HS2. They get the profit. Us mug taxpayers get the expense. I am sick of paying for infrastructure that is making Londoners and other freeloaders seriously rich.
  9. Tories cutting it a bit fine methinks. Been in power seven years and only a few crappy new builds on flood plains to show for it (ignoring the London high rises only Chinese millionaires can afford)
  10. I can no longer listen to Radio 4 or "You and Yours" in particular (I call it Whinge and Moan). Listener base seems to be welfare State rapists trying to socialise any losses whilst hanging on to unearned ill gotten gains (inheritance, HPI you name it) So not at all surprised its boomer listeners are phoning in saying "well our house hasn't risen in value"
  11. Ah good old capitalism provided the State makes good your bets
  12. was reading today how China was destined for a "death spiral." Its funny how so called capitalist economies (yeh even "Communist" China lol) always end up being owned by the real estate sector. (Except Singapore of course where is land ownership is restricted, and most housing is public sector).
  13. Will end up with top job at IMF I bet. "A job well done" (aka houses out of everyones reach except the 0.000001% rich)
  14. not really as container living doesn't really solve the real problem which is unaffordable land. Also no boomer would allow a container city anywhere near them. They need "breathing room" remember?
  15. Yup the Chinese will be able to drop in and check up on their BTL's which most of Manchesters professionals are being rent farmed for. Our politicians will end up hanging from lamp posts with any luck when people discover this is permanent and not temporary
  16. was seriously thinking of taking a look at your area durhanborn, but pretty settled here in West Yorkshire. All set for crash speed here too, provided Norther Shithouse idiots don't start inflating too mch
  17. Morning guys. Your present from the boomer generation. We know you love to skimp on space in favour of cost savings !
  18. I agree. But that doesn't have the youth available for three to four years rent farming away from home. charging them £80-90 for serviced apartments with internet. Seems to be the only successful business model here in Huddersfield at the moment. Only good thing is that the likes of "Unite Students" have put a fair few mom and pop amateur Rachmans out of business.
  19. spot the ball vanished decades ago when the incredible precision required to win was revealed. Total scam. I guess they hoped everyone had forgotten so chose now to revive it
  20. What I found distressing about this show, was the huge sums being demanded by London landlords for what was former social housing. I was routing for the tenants regardless of the circumstances. If they could win a few months free rent, then good for them. Also the use of High Court Sheriffs to speedily evict rather than waiting months for the County Court guys to get involved
  21. when the future is either 1) neofeudalism or. 2) neofeudalism Agree 100%. But you can't rule out the Tories stealing another election by throwing money at boomers or wannabe boomers in the form of Help To Buy Will be voting for Corbyn. I've drifted increasingly leftwards in recent years. I actually don't think capitalism works at all (all it does is transfer the economy on a plate to ho moaners in my experience). Probably fixable but no political will to do it
  22. I think theft is a problem. Someone had a scooter outside the block of flats were I live. Had it chained to the railings which was also a disabled ramp as it was the only fixable point. The Council complained and that was the end of someones scootering ambitions. I think an electric bike would be more practical in flats, provided I could get the thing in the lift
