Thing You Pay The Bank To Let Keep Your Stuff In Is Worth £6000 Less

Recommended Posts

Some quality from the DM today:

THE thing you keep your stuff in that's owned by the bank and that no-one wants to buy anyway is worth £6000 less than it used to be, according to new research.

Let me tell you, them guys ain't dumb

The Halifax monthly thing price survey found that if there was even the slightest possibility of anyone wanting to buy the place where your stuff is you would just end up owing the Halifax even more money.

A spokesman said: "This is the biggest thing price fall since there were records. So, that's maybe 1984? When did Brothers in Arms come out?

"Anyway, what it means for the likes of you is that for the time being you should probably just keep living there, giving us our ******ING MONEY every month and making yourself feel better by putting up a new coat hook as part of your elaborate pretence at ownership.

"When it's time to MOVE THE ****** OUT we'll send you a really nice letter with lots of confusing numbers on it."

Helen Archer, who has permission from a group of Spaniards to keep her stuff in a two bedroom thing in Finsbury Park, said: "Sometimes I think about not paying the Spaniards and then I imagine what it would be like if everyone did the same.

"And sometimes I mention this to other people and they shout at me very loudly and say, 'No! That would be very very bad! Everyone would die!' And then they call me a 'stupid bloody cow'.

"But I'm pretty sure that everyone would actually be just fine and then we would all have a place that really was our own. But I don't say that out loud. Because of the shouting."

She added: "Do you like my new coat hook?"

That's distinctly subversive; not paying the Spaniards! The whole deck of cards would come crashing down. :lol:

Mind you, Santander have been too lucky for too long, they're due a fall. And since I've got no money with them everyone feel free to not make your payments - they can't repo you all. ;)

Yes, excellent article and an interesting point- what would happen if everybody just refused to pay their mortgage?

Pretty much all banks and building societies would go bust, taking everyone's savings with them.

Yeah, but as they aren't the savings of those paying the mortgages, what does that matter? :)

That's what's going to happen anyway, whether through a massive shock to the system, or through continued bailouts and currency depreciation.

Can't get enough of the Mash, should be published as a real paper for the masses to buy and read.

It's about 'time' - pocket watch out, start whistling! :rolleyes:

A santander-standoff where long abused 'customers' show banks why they can carry on existing!

Spain's Spaghetti Western Town - Tabernas, Almeira 'A Fistful of Dollars' was one of many films shot here.

Between 1960 and 1975, nearly 600 westerns were made in Europe. Because most of them were financed by Italian companies, they were called 'spaghetti' westerns.

The vast majority of spaghetti westerns were filmed on location in Spain, usually near the Mediterranean coastal town of Almería.

I've had a distinctly uneasy feeling about these guys for some time now, they seem to be acquiring a number of banks in Europe as well as the ones we know about in the UK, all seems too "easy".

:unsure:

Because no one would be able to buy any houses again. Or get a loan. And a lot of people would be peniless. And the UK would be well and trult ******ed. Need i go on.
