    Shop shop shoptastic flop

    Follow up - we went to York today and it is full of local craft makers (wood, jewellery, art) - it wasn't cheap but not stupidly expensive. We avoided the crappy looking food stalls though...

    Shop shop shoptastic flop

    I was in Manchester last week for some work so I did visit the Christmas markets hoping the craft fair one that used to be by the John Rylands Library was open. It wasn't but I did see (by the town hall) a (wtf stall) that was only selling Garden shears... The other thing that I will comment is that I'm working with a global team at the moment so it was me, a PM from Holland and someone from Israel. The other 2 were very surprised as to how busy the city centre was at 11am on a weekday morning..

    Bad taste now a hate crime..

    The public order offence was probably the fact the video was placed on social media which is the cause of all this insanity. Previously people did or said things in a pub and it never went anywhere and was forgotten the next day . Sadly social means things stay forever and the auto-offended are able to find things to be offended about and pass on to other auto-offended morons who without social media they would never have met.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    They weren't expecting to loss and remember they still don't know why people voted leave so they continually look at options which ain't going to solve the actual issues....

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Cameron's screw up was to not offer 3 options in the referendum - as we were, his new deal and leave. Mind you I suspect leave would have still won on the basis of the f*** you vote...

    Tommy Robinson thread

    What new charges? Not being awkward but I can't find any reference to anything except the 2 original charges that he is being retried for...
  9. Grainger are build to let people - and to be honest they are better to deal with than most housing associations. And at least you know where the profits go...

    Additional Voluntary Council Tax

    I didn't say the money would be put to good use. Although I know of a few departments in Cornwall who would be pushing for the money to go to citizen's advice as due to issues with it's funding the council workers are having to take up the slack - for instance housing are having to do off-record conversations as there is no-one able to provide the appropriate advice...

    Additional Voluntary Council Tax

    I can actually see the logic of it in a tourist area like Cornwall where some wealthier second home owners may be happy to toss another £100 a month in the direction of the council...
  12. Yep - the other requirement is 1 kitchen and not multiple ones - I discovered that when looking at a property earlier this year. Equally too many toilets may be a reason to refuse a mortgage...
  13. Well his best bet is probably to head towards Malta with as much cash as he can carry as he will needs enough for the rest of his days..
  14. They must be, he wouldn't have a problem if he had a property or 3 that wasn't mortgaged as you could use those to extract yourself from the rest of the mess... Years ago I did a post of TOS that covered the order you needed to do things to extract yourself from a Jenga IO BTL pyramid it's not pretty and either have to be very lucky or do things in a particular order. The inability to extract any money from a sale makes it impossible so bankruptcy is eventually inevitable, the only question is whether its a bank or HMRC that push you into it....
  15. I think you have your maths wrong - I suspect his net cashflow isn't anything like what you think it is (remember this is just £2.3m owed to UKAR, there are another 52 properties with no doubt similar loans)... Now assuming a return of 3% on the £3.6 portfolio - that gives him an income of £108k from those properties 4% interest on £2.3m is £92k a year - so he has some leeway but its not that much (of course once you factor in S24 he is royally fluffed but that's a different day)..
