  1. 2010 has seen an increase in HPI as the best quality houses have sold in an environment of very few sales, gendering a falsely high value overall, coupled with London prices being (ludicrously) included in National Averages. Public Sector cutbacks and redundancies. NHS restructure (more redundancies). Continued Private Sector slimming down. (Non employment Recovery). Gradual tightening of household budgets. Control of Housing Benefit and hence reduction of Buy to Let market. All point to gradual attrition of HPI over the next three to five years. 20% fall over next 3 to 5 years.
  2. Brought to you, actually, by MacDonalds. PN
  3. The old man ran a burger bar at the side of the road. He saved enough to send his son to College. His son came back in the summer holidays. "Dad ! They told me at College there would be a "Double Dip" !" "Gee, son. Business has been good and I was about to order more buns and more beef. What do you think I should do ?" "Well, they say it will be terrible. No-one will be able to buy anything due to the Osterity Mergers." "That sounds bad, son. Maybe I'll cancel my orders." "Yes, Dad. And they say there be Fizzcal Cutbacks." "Wow ! Fizzcal Cutbacks. That sounds awful. I think I'll only open on Tuesdays and Fridays instead of all week." So, Dad cut back his orders and only opened two days a week. And, what do you know ? His cashflow fell to the point where he went out of business. Moral: When the going gets tough...... the tough still need to eat their burgers.
  4. Can you supply the link, bs, so that I can see the charts, please ?
  5. HPI was artificially boosted in 2004/2005 by dropping Interest Rates at a time which Mervyn King later admitted (he voted against it) was bad economics. Now, IRs cannot be adjusted any further downwards. In 2008/9, Labour artificially boosted FTBs hopes with various schemes. Now, there is simply no money left to operate any schemes. BTL involvement is being slightly modified by CGT increase. (to 50%?) The last thing propping up HPI is Housing Benefit. And benifits will now be curbed. Gradually, every single thing that Labour did to desperately keep the pot boiling is being taken away or at least reduced. I firmly believe that, now, we will see the proper correction of HPI that has long been needed..... since about 2002. Bring it on, I say.
  6. I'm still wondering where this 160 tons of gold appeared from. It seems to have suddenly materialised when someone did some sums. Listen, Sheikh El Hagbag - it either appeared out of a camel's bum while nobody was watching or else, my old friend, you were .... FOOKIN' WELL HIDIN' THE STUFF !!!!!
  7. "recently valued at £2,600,000 and we are seeking to achieve £2,000,000". Oh really - how generous of you. And why would that be, then, eh ?
  8. The rents aren't so bad in Housing Association properties. You just have to put up with Ms Next Door's boyfriends scraping their knuckles on the path as they visit, clearing up the vomit on the pavement twice a week, wearing ear plugs for 80% of your home life and shopping around to find an Insurance Company that will give you a reasonable premium on eight claims a year for keyed paintwork. (Prefer private myself. As if you didn't guess
  9. The Englishman's Concise Compendium (Fifth Edition) regards them as "discontinuously reciprocal". I hope that clears the matter up. Or, as The Oxford Liturgical Directory would have us say.... clears up the matter.
  10. •REDUCED! SUPERIOR TERRACED FAMILY HOME •FITTED TO A HIGH SPECIFICATION •A MUST FOR VIEWING, DON'T MISS OUT The words "Superior" "High Spec" and "Must View" are all irrelevant. Only the word "Reduced" shows the true worth of this cretinous mix of undesirability. One can only wait for the much needed word "again" to be added......
  11. Highly likely, I think, MT. Anyone owning a tasteless monstrosity like that should never allow themselves to be glimpsed in public.
  12. You are clearly unfamiliar with position 245 in the Kama Sutra... "Blending the WingWang with the Open Flower whilst dropping brain tissue on the carpet"
  13. Glad that the consumption of rotting flesh works for you, TS. These forthcoming budget cuts will mean nothing to you, I can see. All I need is the sky above me... a tin hat... and a dead rat, once a day.... mmmm.... bliss.
  14. The Editor, The West Uddingshire Gazette. Dear Sir, I am writing to complain about the amount of diddly squat in this country. I didn't fight in a war to find diddly squat all over my front drive in the morning. The local Council is responsible for this diddly squat and I don't pay my Council Tax to see it lying there, day after day. It's about time that Mr Blair did something about it, instead of dieing his hair black and wearing a blue tie. Yours etc Colonel Aubrey Beltching-Fosbury
  15. Indeed, and you can take a cow to water, but you can't make it blink.
  16. Plenty of people willing to invest...... as long as housing benefit sets the level of rent return in the UK. If Housing Benefit drops (or becomes less available than at present) then so will rent values. Two bedroom terraces, priced at £80,000 (Wales, North East, Midlands, Scotland) can return a healthy 7% on current rents, which are based on, and held up by, Housing Benefit which increased substantially in April this year.
  17. Here's the URL for the VX Index on a daily basis :- http://www.traderslog.com/quotes-charts/?page=ccharts&sym=$VIX&gclid=CI6tqKi17aECFZFh4wod7CsPKQ
  18. Ahh... I see... that explains it. Thanks.
  19. I'm told you can spice things up by momentarily cutting off the breath supply, but best not to do it when alone.
  20. (Deep breath) Right.... When I were a lad, I was murdered several times a day......... (see Monty Python for the rest of this.....)
  21. Only if Asia doesn't read this thread and realises it was a glitch on low volume trading..... So... here goes.... Cantonese first :- Phling kao pokie whota ding coph dogah woon po...... etc
  22. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/travelnews/7760478/Heathrow-third-runway-plan-formally-withdrawn.html "Meanwhile, a £150 expansion of Bristol airport – too owned by BAA – will go ahead after it was given local council approval on Monday. The terminal will be extended and capacity increased from five to six million passengers to 10 million by 2019/20. " ==================== Forget houses..... let's live in Terminals.
