About Me

  1. I have been doing a lot of research about maintaining EU citizenship after Brexit and found Portugal to be perfect. - Getting a five year residency in Portugal is as easy as turning up to a local town hall with a passport and national insurance card called a NIR (easy to get also). - You do not have to stay in Portugal for five years. I am trying to find the exact requirements but I think you only have to be in the country for only 6 months out of every 30. - After 5 years you apply for permanent residency. - After on more year (year 6) you can apply for citizenship and bec
  2. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-applies-to-join-huge-pacific-free-trade-area-cptpp Press release UK applies to join huge Pacific free trade area CPTPP The UK is formally applying to join one of the world’s largest free-trade areas, deepening trade ties with some of the fastest-growing markets in the world International Trade Secretary Liz Truss will speak to ministers in Japan and New Zealand on Monday morning (1 February 2021) to request to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), with formal negotiations set t
  3. Again, along with the near miss (or hit, depending on your stance), another one of Gordie's genius ideas is blowing up the UK again. Paying out tax credits to EU nationals has drawn in 10% of East Europe workforce, paying them a huge salary to hand wash cars, etc etc. Forcing up costs for the low paid natives, putting them out of jobs etc etc. All down to that cretin Brown. Seriously, he's been out of power ~6 years and his 'great idea's' are still flying back to coup and dumping on the UK. There's a BBC article on Camerons attempt to winkle out of the benefit payments: http://www.bbc.co.u
  4. Hi I noticed that there seems to be a mini surge in asking prices in the last few months, despite the uncertainty of Brexit having he potential of sending Northern Ireland back to the stone ages in terms of economic prosperity. we also have reports from PWC saying 4% growth per year in house prices https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/ireland/northern-irish-house-prices-to-enjoy-strongest-growth-pwc with one breath, and with the other releasing news reports that lead the sane of us to question how there can be any reason why the housing market cannot be falling apart https://www.belfastte
  5. To all remoaners out there, if you truly want an HPC you have to agree a no deal Brexit is the best way to achieve this. Mark Carnage just had a big meeting with the press confriming that No deal = 33% discount
  6. Will the house prices go down after marhc end(article 50). Thanks
  7. Mark Carney has signalled the Bank of Englandwould be prepared to cut interest rates – or freeze plans to increase them – in order to support jobs and economic growth should Britain be plunged into a disorderly Brexit. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/may/24/bank-england-ready-act-uk-faces-disorderly-brexit-mark-carney-says
  8. When the government has completed it's negotiations for leaving the European Union, do you want a referendum on the final deal.
  9. All banks in the clear, seemingly very comfortable this time around, BTL not so much... "Today’s stress tests also found that buy-to-let mortgages would suffer the bulk of the losses if there was a financial crisis. Loans to owner-occupiers would be much more modest. In other words, families would keep paying off their mortgages even if the economy went into recession, but some buy-to-let lenders might struggle to meet their obligations." https://www.theguardian.com/business/live/2017/nov/28/bank-of-england-stress-tests-financial-stability-released-live Carney's narrat
  10. Hello all I am new to this valuable and hope you can share your thoughts. My partner and I have managed to save up about £50k which should be enough to cover deposit and costs for the purchase of our first home. The question is whether to buy now or wait? We are renting at the moment in a nice but smallish 3 bed semi and would like to buy something along those lines. Prices for such properties are from around £350k - £400k which I feel is very high. Around £300k gets you a mid terrace. Our ideal property would currently have a repayment higher than our rent cost. I am prepared t
  11. Interested to see what the consensus is on here
  12. Are we all misjudging Theresa's political skills? Here is a scenario: Let's imagine that she is in favour of remain. She achieves leadership of the Tory party by pretending to have changed her spots, however, it is all a clever ruse. She then wins over lots of support by championing Brexit, but then pulls an amazing stunt by calling for an election. Instead of the ostensible reason for the election, i.e. having an increased majority, she actually intends to totally **** up the whole process, and end up in coalition? To this end, she writes the most unpopular manifesto, comes up with
  13. This article in Bloomberg today looks interesting as an option for retaining partial trade links to Europe after leaving the EU. What are the HPC views on this? Brexit Backers Urge May to Study Rejoining Europe Trade Body https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-03-07/brexit-backers-urge-may-to-examine-rejoining-european-trade-body
  14. Oh dear, looks like the Guardian are having a few difficulties 'processing' reality. They seem perplexed that the economy didn't just collapse in a heap the moment Brexit won the referendum, as they and other 'liberal progressive' types had assured us (and each other) it would: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/jan/05/why-uk-economy-defied-predictions-doom-brexit-vote The notion that maybe there were valid economic reasons in favour of Brexit has of course, completely escaped their politically correct, SJW collective heads. Nope, Brexit was a disaster and anyone who
  15. I am inclined to believe that the madness of spending money is going to be the debt-laden doom of us all. If we're so impetuous to purchase homes, what happens to us when we cannot afford to reside within the country we were born in? https://www.ft.com/content/c061e51a-c8f5-11e6-9043-7e34c07b46ef - Consumer spending rises but savings fall to low levels.
  16. It was September last year, on a US visit and watching Trump speaking as a candidate for the first time, that it became a certainty to me that he (or at least that thing on his head) would win the race for US President 2016. Trump will win for one single reason alone: A BREXIT-like "stick it to the establishment"-attitude of the disenchanted. For those of you, who have doubts, read the following, which was written by no one less than Michael Moore: 5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win http://michaelmoore.com/trumpwillwin/ What will Trump's election do for house prices? I think the impact could b
  17. Received an invitation from a local EA inviting me to join a roundtable discussion entitled 'Lets talk property and Brexit'. Blurb..... In the wake of Britain’s decision to leave the EU, many of us are left wondering, “What will Brexit mean for me and my property or, indeed, properties?” While no one can answer this question with absolute certainty, we can take our concerns to the experts. Join the audience of our round table, with experts from the world of estate agency, lettings, finance and tax, and commercial property. We’ll explore the impact and opportunity for property – and w
  18. Merits its own thread IMO BBC front page news - so is this supposed to be more negative news about Brexit?
  19. Back onto house prices instead of politics or racism! List what you have seen and see if we can start a snowball rolling.....
  20. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/9d29a55c-44f1-11e6-b22f-79eb4891c97d.html#axzz4DqLB5br6 Good to know that Goldman Sachs people not only head the ECB, but the tentacles reach all the way into the heart of the commission.
  21. Brexit Blowback - The Panic Will Start With Property http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-07-05/brexit-blowback-panic-will-start-property
  22. According to the mainstream media half the country have woken up regretting how they voted - it this true?
  23. The People have spoken and there is no doubt that the Banks have eaten us and themselves. Are we looking at the catastrophic falls in house prices as predicted, or is this merely a threat by Project Fear. The Pound is taking a hammering, markets are plunging worldwide and Gold shoots up by 4%. Talk of BOE cutting interest rates to save the pound.
  24. So there's been a massive market crash. Total disaster. Economic carnage. We'll be lucky if the general population makes it through the night in one piece. Is this actually accurate? Hypothesis 1: the British stock market has crashed This is the FTSE index of the top British companies (not that the share price of the top British companies helps me or 99% of the public in any way! But let's just ignore that argument): You can see the quite dramatic losses, which were genuinely dramatic although entirely predictable, because markets are completely irrational casinos and bear no resemblance
  25. So now we have that little vote out of the way, will everyone calm down and discuss with me the potential leaders to take this country forward. Johnson looks favourite to take over from Cameron but with a possible snap election and change in Labour leader as well, who do we think would be best placed to lead the UK out of Europe and into a brighter future.
