Another Bellweather Indicatory Pointing To Hpc

Recommended Posts

"economic growth in the UK and the new housing market in general
continues to deteriorate
."

IN the last couple of days we have see Dixons posting poor results, Nintendo sales off and now its Kazis and other bathroom fitttings. This reflects the slowdown in new construction (and home improvement) nicely as kazis feature in every new home. It seems that new construction is a better bellweather than resale properties as builders cannot ride out the market or decide to rent until things improve. They also lead the market down as I have found many builders willing to offer discounts and incentives to move the bricks off the lot.

Surely you mean Karsey? (As in Karsey Moilet?)

But how does that relate to toilet?!

Karsie Moilet is cockney rhyming slang for toilet

That makes sense--never hear that connection before. Who was Karsie Moilet and is he/she brown bread?

Kitchens too. Housing transactions count, not just in number but type. FTB's who in most cases have not accumulated all the OO's typical stash of household goods are big spenders generally. FTB numbers are dire, the consumer economy is going nowhere but down if you strike out the FTB's from the market. BTL's will not spend a fraction on goods overall - lucky if you get a lick of paint.

Whoever thought of going down this route really didn't think it through. To do so on a wave of debt is frankly assinine.

Toilet trivia.

'Yet another name for a W.C.':

http://p098.ezboard.com/fwordoriginsorgfrm...cID=12747.topic

The word you're looking for is spelled both khazi and carsey. It seems to have come from Polari slang which may have borrowed it from Lingua Franca

A dictionary of slang -- K:

http://www.peevish.co.uk/slang/k.htm

karzy

noun A lavatory, toilet. The word lavatory is in itself, a euphemism for a place to wash. From the Italian for house, casa. Numerous alternative speilings include khazi, kharzie, karsey, karzey, and kazi.

London Blog -- a pea-souper of information:

http://www.londontourist.org/blogmar.html

"It could be Naff, let's varda how it trolls", without explanation sentance is unintelligable to the modern reader, though forty years ago it would have said a lot about which circles you moved in. It's written in Polari, a slang prevalent in Soho and its environs, and used by the effeminate, gay, homosexual, naval and theatrical set. It's derived from Italian, lingua franca and several words persist in English today. For instance the word Khazi - for toilet - is actually the word Carsey - from Casa - house or cottage (and hence the verb to cottage as in LA by George Michael) which belies its Italian origins.

Polari - British gay slang:

http://www.chris-d.net/polari/

Polari (also seen as 'Palare') is a gay slang language, which has now almost died out. It was more common in the 1960's when gays had more need of a private slang.

[...snip...]

Polari itself was never clearly defined: an ever-changing collection of slang from various sources including Italian, English (backwards slang, rhyming slang), circus slang, canal-speak, Yiddish and Gypsy languages. It is impossible to tell which slang words are real Polari.

In London, there was a West End dialect, based on theatre-speak, which was posher than the East End dialect, based on canal/boat-speak.

Here is a list of words I have put together from various sources. The core of the words are hopefully "authentic" Polari, but some will be just "any old" slang.

[...snip...]

khazi toilet, also spelt carsey

I think we're getting a bit "bogged" down in all of this

Seems there's more than 1 derivation!
