N Korean Missiles Impact On Housing?

N Korean Missiles Impact On Housing?

I think it's possible some of the scuds could knock a few tiles off: does that answer your question?

Will it be the straw that breaks the back? Internationally there's loads of stuff going on - iraq, iran, afghanistan etc etc

Perhaps: it can work in two ways. First, if it breaks confidence that 'things are getting better'; second, if there's a direct financial aspect - higher interest or tax rates.

why all the focus on world events to provide a simple need such as uk housing ?

this is grabbing at the straw. surely we can do better than to hang our hopes on this rubbish.

the responsibility of this is with the current government.

vote liberal for tax on 2nd homes.

vote liberal for tax on 2nd homes.

I'd go further then that. Double Council tax for all second homes to compensate for the damage they do to communities and no mortgages for second homes above 20% of purchase price.

And Buy to Let Landlords have to donate blood every second tuesday in the month......and........

Homes for people - not investment.

Clutching at straws it is. Korean Missiles will have absolutely zero affect on U.K housing, exactly as they have limited affect on the stock market.

The rubbish yesterday that U.K stocks fell because of the missiles has been cleared up today with stocks more than making up for the profit taking yesterday.

I think you should have to provide 50% deposit for 2nd homes, and be taxed at 50% CGT on selling them, but won't ever vote Liberal.

What ever happens out there we're pretty powerless to make a difference. Its relies on the US to stand down for a change but they won't do that.

Mr Bush can't use military action as he would get his ass kicked = would trigger a China / Korea v America Conflict....US no chance of winning that. Not with the bone heads he recruits as marines.

What this all comes down to is capitalism and the never ending need for growth and the inevitable destruction of our planet earth.

House prices are pretty pointless....take the land and build your own...urban revolution.

y'know. i no longer give a rats ass for any news outside englands borders.

i dont care no longer for scots news. welsh news. ulster news. africa news. european news. middle east news. muslim news. stock news. gold news or environmental news.

who cares really. after a few decades of the same news you work out it never stops.

scots thrive on thinking a line on a map makes them different. as do the welsh and northern irish.

africans are so inept and self corrupt they could never managew to feed a nation.

middle east are on a collective power/land grab and dont care who dies in the way.

stocks is just a swindle for large money shakers who know when to shaft the stick.

gold is just crap dug out from a hole by blacks and controlled by jews and sold to whites.

environment is just the biggest group of self important jobs for the boys while remaining totally contradictory and pointless.

i dont want any of this. i just want a 3 bed house near or in chorley.

There won't be a house in Chorley if no one can afford to pay to heat one. Gas prices in 15 years will be at least 20 times more expensive than they are now. Nuclear.....probably the most expensive way to make heat.

Build you own eco home and get government money to do and discount land........forget the property ladder.

then clangnuts. go liberal. its a policy issue and its real.

THEY ARE PLANNING A TAX ON 2ND HOMES>

they got my vote.

Do they know they are getting your vote? I voted Liberal a couple of times in the 70s - despairing of Labour and the power of the unions - but unable to bring myself to vote Tory.

If they have announced that policy - ring them up and tell them you like it. If it resonates with your generation - and the Liberals sniff it will get them young votes - and maybe more party members etc - you might find this is the way to get the issue up the political agenda.

I am now looking for details of my local Liberal party to do the same thing.

The Masked Tulip

they probably have a web comments box or something, though the best advertisment is to help convert others by drawing attention to this policy next time your in one of those house price conversations.

On the issue of an impact on housing - the answer must be 'No'.

In the 50s to 80s we lived with the very real fear of nuclear war with Russia at any time. After the Cuban missile crisis there was always the fear that, at any time, the ballon could go up. People used to expect to hear a 4 minute warning. Nobody seemed to know what that was all about - but the idea presumably was that once the missiles were detected lifting off in Russia, you had 4 minutes to say your goodbyes and make your peace with God. Quite surreal looking back.

Can you imagine if that happened during the day - who would you ring first? Quick call to the wife - 'love you, it's been great, got to go, want to get hold of the kids' .... ring the school '... well can you get him to the phone ... I know everyone wants to say goodbye to their kids .... please bring him to the phone ....'

We lived with that bloody nonsense - well I can say I lived with it all my life until the Berlin wall fell. What a bloody moment that was! Now we have Iran and Korea and Iraq and .... well you just get tired of it.

You can't live with that every day. Sooner or later you start making plans - buying a bigger house etc. Life carries on.

do you think the BT workers would be sitting through the 4 min warning operating your calls ?

nope.

a lot of people said 'id be shagging me missus ect' but in the panic i dont see it. i think it would be surreal. screams from within neighbours homes. cars flying by at breakneck speeds. the sound of windows breaking. shouting. screaming. dogs barking. emptiness. flying newspaper and escort xr3i's left running. doors open.

myself id prepare a pot noodle, though i am sure the power would be off for the kettle. even the radio only would house a pre-recorded national warining. there'd be no receptionist or chatty djs. they would have ran on a pre attack skeliton staff. mostly news reports.

i used to fear the wail of the warning....

I didn't mean the BT workers. I meant the school secretary. She'd stay at her post because of 'Health and Safety'!

I too used to wonder what I'd do in that 4 minutes. If it happened now, I'd nip round and introduce a particular neighbour to a pick handle. We'd all die wondering 'what's it all about Alfie, but my neighbour would die holding his bolleaux gently in his hands.' Then, down on my knees to make what I was told as a child must be a 'Perfect Act of Contrition'.

Can you imagine if the tele carried on working - pre-recorded government messages 'everyone should stay calm and reflect on whether they are getting out without paying all the tax they owe ....'

Totally agree there Marina........I gave up reading the papers a long time ago......I don't watch much TV anyway, so don't really watch the news. A lot of it is completely irrelevant to me anyway....my advice to people is stop worrying about things......you're only making yourselves ill. Go for a walk or a bike ride......count your blessings

exactly, and exactly what I said yesterday when the same stupid topic came up. In the evening a weapons expert gave his verdict, which was of the nature: "It goes to show that their capability hasn't improved in years. Storm in a tea cup."

Now if you want to listen to Washington upping the ante just to oust another ruler they don't like, well, you really haven't learnt much from Iraq have you?
