  1. hello sir, hope you are well

  2. http://www.zillow.com/blog/case-shiller-is-it-really-that-bad/2009/04/02/ UK has never had proper index when it comes to house prices... There are so many gaps in the current indexes and the data from transactions that actually negates using any of them at all. However, there is no such thing as bad data; it is all down to collecting all of the available data, so one can actually create its own proper index related to particular property, or particular area. People reading and listening to the hype or gloom in the media, or on this forum are out of touch as much as the media itself. There
  3. And how exactly would the council enforce this scheme?
  4. The only thing that Germany wants is a clearing mechanism for bankrupted Member States. Plain and simple EMF would provide a slaughter house mechanism for the misbehaving MS. There is nothing wrong with that, but whoever thinks that Germany is after a wider oversight is not reading between the lines. There would be European Monetary Union only for MS which deserve to stay in. Fiscal monitoring would be a mechanism which would provide an early signal to the EMF to engage in effectively a bankruptcy for the troubled MS. The mechanism would allow orderly unwind without causing dangerous waves fo
  5. After reading the following I must admit that whoever thought of Europe as a cure for cancer must have been barking mad. Any normal government with budgetary powers would avoid losing these sovereign powers at all cost. It seems that the poor policymakers in Athens are wiling to offer their bottoms to Europe for less money than to the rest of the World. Bravo to the German PM, and Bravo to all German judges t who stood up to the countless infringements on German sovereignty. It's time for all Europhiles to wake up and smell the coffee. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/ambrose
  6. Yelim ,what about simple entirely informal trilogies which by-pass the established formal machinery, and enforce a policy which is hardly influenced by your representatives. It is simple, quicker and easy. Have a look at how transparent and how well represented is the public in the European lawmaking process when these are used. There is no accountability, and yet "94 percent of codecision bills" are made trough these informal trilogies. You are so well represented that you can probably ask the rapporteur for a date. http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld200809/ldselect/ldeucom/125/
  7. What about Member states using the full force of the Article 50 of the TREATY ON EUROPEAN UNION to say piss off: 1. Any Member State may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements. This is absolutely ludicrous idea, they cannot even manage their own arsehole. Why on th earth anyone would put up with an unelected certain 1500 miles away, who actually think he can do better. I would vote any politician who would rethink and reevaluate the EU Membership. I guess these Idiots would also like to take the power of the Bank of England to regulate IR o
  8. You mixing the things up, They, the people, did not borrow money. The private enterprise failed, so the central bank and the government stepped in. If they have left them die as they should have, the country would not have the British and Dutch bankers breathing heavily and puffing around. It is the whole idea of being too big to fail. If the Icelandic Government simply had left them disappear from the earth with all their liabilities and contracts, Mister Darling would not be so optimistic to get his money. Why on the earth the taxpayers should foot the bill for people's failure. It is

  11. Wait and see what? "Mr. Seres shored up his own capital position by selling 30 percent of one real estate venture. “Nobody knows what is the value on the market, because no transactions are on the market,†he said. “Nobody buys buildings now. We call it ‘sit out’ in Hungary. You sit and wait. Wait and see.â€"
  12. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/20...bless-mandelson Peter Mandelson has been busy in recent days trumpeting the fruits of the government's economic stimulus. Yesterday's unemployment data, however, delivers a stark message to the business secretary, to Gordon Brown and to Alistair Darling: you are not doing enough. The headline numbers are bad enough – total jobless rose 220,000 in the three months to June to 2.435 million – but more worrying still is the steep climb in youth unemployment, which has prompted very real fears of a "lost generation". Britain's unemployment rate, as
