Coronation Street

Recommended Posts

A bit of realism in yesterday's episode.Young couple Jason(a builder's assistant) and Tina(a Post Office assistant) think about buying a fixer-upper house. Jason returns from the bank,having been told he can't have a mortgage without a 25% deposit.Makes a change from Dev being gazumped on a "luxury flat." :lol: (Yes,I'm a self-confessed Street fan. :rolleyes: )

I was wondering how this storyline will play out. Let's hope that they can't raise the deposit (well, that's a cert really, unless working as a part-time Post Office counter-assistant and being a builder's labourer suddenly start paying well), then someone stumps up the cash for the deposit (perhaps Eileen will win £25K on a scratchcard?) only to find that the surveyor downvalues the property and they still can't get a mortgage on it.

I don't watch Corrie these days, but a more realistic storyline would have been for "Jason" to tell "Tina" that they can't have a mortgage without a 25% deposit, but that the financial advisor had offered to lie about his salary as a builder's assistant, and that "Tina" could base her salary on a 62-hour working week at the post office.

and maybe declare her bonuses from the lap dancing club? this kind of shite so obviously tries to pace the sheeple reality that it is obscene. I saw something else recently that made me believe in organized boom and bust, but I can`t remember what it was. They need a story line where they all sit in the rovers talking about Liar loans and how much they love HPC.co.uk. I suppose shows like this are not really sinister, but they try and promote social cohesion by putting across the message that it is happening to everyone?

There is a shortage of property for sale on the street anyway. :lol:

ps i hope this does not start Hamish off :lol:

A Weatherfield EA was heard saying:

"Proberdies on Coronation Street just don't come up for sale. When they do, they go for above asking price, due to the high demand. The crash hasn't affected this area, so bid asking price now, or you'll miss the boat."

Isn't everyone on Coronation Street on at least £100k a year - they should be in buy to let and moving to Alderley Edge.

They all still go down the pub on a daily basis - how long has it been since people normally did this? The 80's?

Same with nobenders - never heard a single 'facking cant' there either.

I only see a few mins of a soap when I go downstairs or eat my tea, and it always seems to be showing the sheeple a simplified example of some recent government/political/parliamentary topic. I am convinced it's all fixed propaganda.

A wee bit TFH'ish perhaps but that's what I see.

Maybe that's what Corrie needs,a new radical storyline: Tina becomes an up market Dominatrix,chains Norris to the wall in the store room of The Kabin and makes off with his Rover's assorted box full of blue fivers.Meanwhile Jason turns pimp driving an X5 with blacked out windows,wears a lot of gold chains and points at people in that funny way that Gangstas do. They both appear in Beanie Babe's Snakes and Ladders and after failing to sell an exclusive Weatherfield penthouse for "above the ceiling price" they move in themselves.Norris serves breakfast in bed while wearing designer steel chains, leather body harness and leopard print G string......Christ that cheese I had for supper was strong!

If Corrie was true to life then Ken Barlow would be a property millionaire. First seen in the Rovers at 18yrs old, he'd have built a good portfolio of "Street" properties by now. In fact, he'd probably own the whole street and everyone else would be renting. :lol::lol::lol:

No - it is true to life - that is why Ken is NOT a property millionnaire. He is basically a socialist.

Maybe you should retire your fervent patriotism then.

Might i suggest SOUTH ENGLAND as your location, oh and if you could drop the lancashire rose as your emblem theres a love.
