Escape To The Country

Recommended Posts

BBC tv now

Siegfred Sassoon's house on for 895k

Same chap as in bbc article from Thursday, 29 July, 2004, where he's after 800k for it.

Can't see it as being sold on

Escape to the Country

3:30pm - 4:30pm

BBC2 North West

VIDEO Plus+: 36570

Repeat, Subtitled, Widescreen [No idea when it was first shown]

Clapham to Tunbridge Wells

A series which helps prospective buyers find their dream home in the country. Melissa Porter helps a family find the perfect home on the Kent/East Sussex border.

Just thought that this was interesting to have a 95k difference.

Ah yes, Escape to the Country. Where NuBoomers cash in their equity, offloading the debt onto the next generation. The irony is that to 'escape to the country' their equity now only buys them an almshouse or fisherman's cottage that generations ago would have been given for free to the rural working poor.

i think his point was they have fooled themselves in the end.

OK so the result of capitalist free for all economics started in the 1980's is self defeating in that it creates an illusion of financial freedom but at the same time makes those things that were previously taken for granted unaffordable to most and at the same time destroys the social fabric of the country. Agreed. But whilst we all like to complain about how things are, what solutions (other than hope for a recession that will leave those who have with more and those without with even less) do you have?

The solution, as my teacher used to say, is on the page in front of you. Scroll to the top of your browser window. Hint: it begins with the letter H.

RFD/CVD I assume from your posts that you believe some sort of brave new world will emerge from a HPC induced economic crash?
