Articles To Make Your Blood Boil...

Recommended Posts

just in case anyone missed them in the blog:

"Once again we find a builder offering the much criticised 'gifted deposits' in a different guise. Fact - most new builds are significantly over-priced and if there is to be a price correction historically the new build gets hit first and hardest. This should not escape the first time buyer. You could be left holding a property worth less than you paid for it and having received parental assistance the plight will be much worse if you witness your 'together' deposit simply evaporate in terms of value".

"Graduates are claiming they will not be able to get on to the first-rung of the property ladder for the foreseeable future because of their student debts, research has shown.

Only one in 10 people who have left university since 2001 currently own their own home, with 58% saying they have been unable to purchase somewhere because of their debts, according to debt consultancy Thomas Charles"

Higher education expansion is there to releive pressure off the unemployment stats - at YOUR expense - that's been the case for over 10 years - you should have realised that by now

The 'debt' thing is a bonus for the government as 'graduates' are force to compete with immigrants for the low paid work to pay off their debts - keeping them off the unemployment list further....

Yes its blindingly obvious, but with a teenage daughter you can't help wondering "what's the point in her going to uni, getting the degree, the job..."

Unemployment?

May as well be doing something - that was my attitude 13 years ago to Uni during the recession - but I wasn't paying for it back then....

PS don't forget to play the lottery regularly

Could try emmigrating, this country is too overpriced, standard of living is too low.

Yep, thanks to borrowing/spending/energy prices increasing price inflation and immigration supressing wage inflation
