Exactly.

Out of interest, what were the max number of repos in the last HPC/recession?

And what about all the people who have no debt and live off their savings who have been fecked by ZIRP?

I bet that is more than 200k.

edit to add "live off their" otherwise it looks like "no debt and no savings".

it got to 1000 per week, as well as 1000 insolvencies per week at worst.

cheers BL. I had a figure of 75k repoes in my head, but wasn't sure. Thought it might be 175.

yeah, I think 75K is about right, but of course it went on for 3 or 4 years, so there were about 250,000 personal bankrupts at one time.

Though I'm a bear, and an FTB, I think it's better that I miss out for the time being than 1000's of people lose their homes. I feel sorry for people dragged into more debt than they should by buying a house now, but the numbers will be alot smaller than 200k.

There is a (rare) error in your post Rare Bear

If one may?

If he lives that long :angry:

As one who has made a substantial, albeit temporary, contribution to the great leader's glorious example of caring socialism, I was wondering which of the houses will be mine to live in tax & expenses free for (at a rough calculation) two years?

I quite like some parts of Kent ............. but please not Maidstone!

Yes, I feel sorry for anyone at threat of losing their home through no fault of their own.... eg illness, or loss of work.

But I find it hard to find any sympathy for those who mew'ed their home, to waste money on things they could not really afford, such as exotic holidays or cars, because it is the tax payer who is now left to pay the price for this.

I also do not feel sympathy for those who gambled on the property market by going into btl. Again the tax payer should not be subsidising their "investement" with incredible low interest rates, whilst savers lose out.

make sense man.

these people overstretched and should now be moving out of their investments into rented. bankers should be paying down with house sales.

this is what a market demands.

at the moment YOU are paying the price twice...one in house prices being maintained....and not for your benefit, but for the lenders, and secondly, in extra taxes you are going to be paying....PLUS all the other commitments the Brown has just committed to spending on.

i'd just like to say how very sorry i would be if 1000s of people were repossessed through no fault of their own, who can blame anyone for buying a new audi every 18 months, it would indeed be a real heartbreak if those people were booted out of the houses my tax money and savings subsidise and their 09 audi was sold to someone who didnt overtake me as they whooshed by at 76mph in a 40 area, i would feel gutted for them if they were forced to in any way live within their means and not have a handout from the broader public thus curtailing their merry adventures and general 2 fingers to the rest of us

I don't understand.

Presumably you are in rented accomodation / living with family. If repossessed, that is the position the people who lost their homes would be in.

Are you saying that rented accommodation is acceptable for your needs, but not for others?

I have no sympathy. The overstretched thought they were jumping on a ladder and pulling it up behind them - no thought for me or others in my position - so fvck 'em! They deserve everything thats coming......eventually.

they lose their 'houses' - their 'home' could be a rented one - especially if they cannot afford to own and they will get help with the rent etc if they are genuinely on hard times.

I've sympathy with them; they've been taken in by all the propaganda pumped out by nulab and the vi's over the years and are going to suffer as a result.

I just don't think there's anything we should do about it.

I follow your point, but Gordons speech is fresh in my memory and I'm still wound up, hence no capacity for sympathy or understanding!

Wow, such vitriol and disdain? :huh:

I understand your feelings of injustice but the majority of 'families' are headed by people who don't know all that much so just go with the herd. It's the muppet government and policymakers that we should direct most of our anger towards.

But we are subsidising their 'investment' and we will continue to do so ... GB has saved 200,000 from losing their 'home (sorry investment)' but how many people has he stopped from getting their own home ie home not btl investment? Any ideas anybody?

Millions.

Yes you're bitter and twisted but admit it.

It's a right kick up the stones for you lot wanting a HPC.

Yet another piece of the plan taken away. No reposessions. That was a massive one.

QE number 2 and interest rates low low.

Come on. Just save up and buy a place. It's not worth getting all knotted up. You had a go and got smashed on the rocks. :lol:

Early days. Just wait and see what happens next.

i like vitriol, it is just the interwebs. but really, it pisses me off that just because people can reproduce that they do, without a care for the impact on society. im all for it, but for many its a licence to some kind of secret 'right' that they now have for a big house, work and generally looking down on everyone else. In a nutshell they are ignorant to their own social pollution. ugly people with ugly souls polluting pubs with their gangster like prescence, complaining about customer service they get from bar tenders, shop assistants and other slaves not able to reproduce, usually because they are isolated from viable means to do so. claiming that being a mum is a full time job when the truth is thats what people do, they do stuff, and without their 'children' they would be directionless sacks of crap with no productive out put that anyone wants and totally useless, so in essence they have created a human person to give themselve purpose and reason, which is essentially a totally selfish act.

And then they get nice comfy houses, get really fat and ugly, and NEVER pay their way, in a spritual sense. Instead they all gang up at the school yards, fat sycophantic hags is a virtual circle jerk, all supporting their evil ways in society and justifying it all etc etc.

better build more schools so mums can chit chat with mums in the best possible environments!!! Then more hospitals so they can have their cuunts looked at in the best possible light.

Meanwhile sad single men jerk off on their own again and again just waiting for death and never having to get up again for another day in this crappy country. Gordon Brown should halp single men by distributing FREE FIREARMS so they can kill him..... ooops, hes not likely to do that now is he.
