With their work completed, hundreds of scientists are expected to leave their local rented accomodation, causing a devastating crash in rental demand, and a subsequent knock-on fall in house prices across East Virginia and the Eastern Seaboard.

And when the US sneezes, the UK catches cold...

Where's a moderator when you need one?

They are busy getting rid of all the porn avatars - I don't think we need to be concerned in your case.

What's the matter? Can't come up with some clever spin?? :rolleyes:

Ah yes, FTBs Janet and John are delighted with their executive broom cupboard on the nineteenth floor in the Mussel Building. "We got the walls thrown in for free for only $695,000" trills Janet. We're on an interest only 100% mortgage and we're hoping to MEW later this month so we can afford the first mortgage payment...

BTL Landlords eradicated in Wandsworth

Friday, May 12, 2006 Posted: 1542 GMT (2342 HKT)

BTL Remains unearthed in Wandsworth

By T. Enant, BSc.

The remains of what is believed to be the very last 'BTL Landlord' (or 'muppet, in colloquial English) has been unearthed during an excavation of the Wandsworth Sludgepit, south of the area once known as 'thames'.

Wandsworth, famous as the epicenter of the 'Green Death', which decimated the UK population at the end of the 21st Century, has recently become a hive of activity, as excavation teams from all over the South East rush to prove whether or not 'Muppets' actually had consciousness, as exhibited by modern man.

"Obviously, most people nowadays subscribe to the tautology that 'Muppets' had no brains whatsoever, and were controlled rather like ants, perhaps by the wafting scent of 'free money' exuded by some kind of huge bloated 'megamuppet' hidden deep within the sludge" said Conrad Sheitzelburger, Chair of Muppetry at Birmingham University.

"However, our initial findings show that this muppet (which we believe to be 'Strine') had not only a 12 cubic millimetre brain pan, indicating the possibility of independent (though slow) mental processes, but also a set of fully formed labia and a rudmentary p3nis-like structure, suggesting that these BTL 'muppets' did indeed f*ck themselves".

The BBC refused to comment.

......

In breaking news, mussels that have survived the policy of mass extermination have hijacked a fishing boat and claimed asylum in the UK, where they are expecting to get an executive luxury lobster pot each in which to bring up their thousands of babies.

Newsflash: 'Good tenant' located.

In a rare example that the terms 'good' and 'tenant' aren't necessarily a contradiction in terms, a 'good tenant' has been located. The proof is that the tenant has now exchanged contracts of the purchase of their own home. Unfortunately for most landlords, that means the 'good tenant' will soon be an 'owner occupier' and therfore the remaining tenants will be the usual 'bad tenants' (however most landlords prefer to simply refer to the as 'tenants').

Newsflash ends.
