House Price Crash Forum

Been Gone A While.


Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I've been away for a while, developing more healthy obsessions and doing a spot of travelling. For some reason, when the crash kicked in, I realised that even if houses were going for 50k I still couldnt aford a 25k deposit. So I switched off. Naughty of me really, after 4 years of devotion. I've even been ignoring the stock market. I just trying to clear my debts and see my friends.

So then; whats the current state of the UK housing market and economy? Are things improving, holding static, or getting worse. What about the stock market?

Oh, and has Dstars returned, or RFD?

Much love

BM.

hey Bob... RFD is very back... not heard from Dstars

apparently, according to the BoE lending report today:

1) market recovereh (Hamish)

or

2) we're still doomed (FT)

Ah good, RFD always cheered me up.

The summers here too. Nice breeze. My chilli plants have all started giving birth, counted 38 so far. All is well.

Apart from the fact I have to go to sodding work tomorrow. Major comedown.

If only we couild bring celebrities back from the dead.

Elvis would be 50 stone by now, Freddie would have an asshole the size of the channel tunnel, Jacko would try to do his 50 concerts but only manage 2 before disappearing with his child sweetheart and monkey. Jade would be back on the council estate knocking cable and BT and Bob Monkhouse....well who was he anyway ? Bernie the bolt was his only real claim to fame and that was shite.

Just as well for them they all died early or it would have been even sadder! Its difficult to think of one that died and still had a lot to offer. James Dean perhaps or Kurt Cobain maybe ?

The trouble is, that there's nothing really to talk about anymore. This forum was in its hayday when it was HPC against the world. A minority of realists against the deluded masses. Now the world has met the fate predicted long ago on here and HPC and recession are upon us. There's nothing left to argue about.
