Well, I'm going to take a break from HPC - at least until, to be frank, something interesting happens to house prices and the economy (with my luck, that'll be tomorrow).

It's been a fascinating few years, and my understanding of economics has gone from pretty much zero to someone who can vaguely hold their own in conversation with a banker.

However, it's also been a pretty distracting and faintly depressing exercise, and, in the current limbo, there seems nothing particularly new to say or discuss - we just go around in circles. And, to be honest, I've got other things that I ought to focus on.

Anyway, for now, thanks, farewell and good-luck, and here's to an HPC.

Your posts are some of my favourites tomandlu so I am sorry to see you go. But you gotta do what you gotta do and I wish you well with whatever you are focusing on.

Come on, that's not the way we do leaving on here. You have to have a fight with Brucie, or a flounce because of something someone said. ;)

Best of luck anyway.

How do you leave HPC anyway?

I looked into it but there is nothing in account settings about how to close it!

Let us know if you get away tomandlu, or are we all lifers? :D

Couldn't agree more. There is more to life than bricks and mortar!

I think Twitter is the place to be. You can tweet politicians and economists directly. Whether they take any notice or not is a different matter. The 'conversation' can be decidedly one way.

I may just retire to off topic myself

Like you I realise not much seems to be happening on the HPC front. However I still find a number of posts informative over a wide range of topics, not just about the economy, and I continue to look in and participate most days. Not that I get many replies these days, I must be on a lot of posters ignore list.

Perversely though I wonder what will happen when the last bear turns.

It starts 2015 when US interest rates rise. Sewn on.

Annoyingly circumstances may dictate I have to buy earlier. Which will mightily hack me off as it will cost me (my estimate) £150k.

Fingers crossed but potentially: Nadgers.

Faintly? Faintly ffs?

Try utterly. Forum has been quieter and is full of circle jerking nutjobs in places.

And I speak as a nutjob. Solo nutjob. No public school circle jerking here.

Just so you know tomandlu, I will always blame the buyers. ;)

See you back on hpc soon, I hope. Seems you should be ok whichever way things turn out, so good luck.

A change is a good as a rest. You'll be missed. Make sure you lurk, so when it kicks off you can join in without having to spend too long mastering ATNATHAITM, (All The New Acromym That Have Appeared In The Meantime).
