sarahbell reacted to Chewing Grass in £250K to rent a unit in a shopping centre
That was Birchwood Park £211M in one pop with a yield of 2.5% i.e. £5M/year if all goes swimmingly. The other was Eddie Stobarts distribution depot at £26M with greenbelt planning permission strapped to it to double its size.
The numbers are appalling considering how 'rosy' things are at the moment.
'It has completed a £26.1 million deal to buy Eddie Stobart's headquarters at Stretton Green Distribution Park from Ropemaker Properties. It follows the authority's deals to buy Birchwood Park for £211 million from Oaktree Capital Management, as well as Matalan, DW Sports and Pure Gym in the town centre.'
The yield on Stobarts depot is £1.2M in rent.
Apparently it is the Councils business 'strategy' to buy commercial properties in an attempt to offset the impact of cuts in Government funding.
The most of the rest of the town is turning into a chavvy shit-tip rammed with new-builds filled with ex-pat help-to-buy Liverpudlians.
Trouble is they 'the council' genuinely think they are business big-shots whilst the big-shots who sold them the stuff knew when the game was up and recognised the council as a completely mug punter (unless they were put up to it by central government).

Rightly or wrongly I always assumed that the majority of small independents were in owned outright and passed down unencumbered with debt down the family line. No rent and family making up a proportion of the staff on flexible wages then during lean times easier to eek out an existence.
sarahbell reacted to One percent in Fuck me, the So-Called BBC are discussing atrocities against the working class. What’s the real agenda here?
In 1819, a troop of sabre-wielding cavalrymen charged into a huge workers' rights protest in Manchester. The carnage that followed is the subject of a new film starring Maxine Peake. But who was the man who ordered the Peterloo Massacre?

Now, you wimmin are just going to have to accept that a man can be just as good, if not better than a real woman.
Better cooks, better child rearers, more prettier, and, according to dirty steve from the pub who goes to thailand a lot, a better shag.
Now its important then these male uberbirds are sentive when announcing that wimmin are now 3rd rate humans.
Like people 50 odd years ago remember where they were when kennedy was shot.
Im sure 2018s wimmin will remember what they were doing when asked to suck big lady cock.

Yeah Edith, I think there was a finer point of subtlety being made there but sadly it passed right between your two brain cells.
sarahbell reacted to Game_of_Homes in Charities
I'm starting to think more and more that "successful" charities, the online megaliths, ride sharing apps and all the other "success" stories of the sharing economy of the 2000s is all a bit emperor's new clothes. They often seem to be able to do so well by having an unfair advantage which means the little man/companies cannot compete, be it special tax arrangements, access to capital with very beneficial rules/rates, insider knowledge, friends in high places, nepotism, ways to legally but immorally circumvent the rules etc not available to the plebs.
All these Masters of the Universe are like the Wizard in the Wizard of Oz. When you peer behind the curtain you realise that a lot of this success and genius is based on dubious practices, pretending and convincing, using tools which only they have been given privileged access to.

Say 2 (straight) guys get married and buy a house together and then move in 2 burds. (No need to tell the burds about their marriage.) After some years, one or both burds decide to go for cash and prizes and want half of their exes shit. Her ex is already married and living with his 'spouse'. How does that work out legally?

I have looked into Kashoggis background in a bit more detail and have revised my earlier views slightly. In my view he spent most of his career working as a spook using journalism as a cover.
Like most Saudis outside the royal family Kashoggi needed a powerful backer to get his break into the Saudi media.
His patron was Prince Turki Bin Faisal Al Saud who just happened to be the head of the Saudi Secret Service,the Al Mukhabarat AlA'amah, from 1977-2001. Incidentally, having been reconfirmed in that job for 4 years in May 2001 Turki bin Faisal resigned on 1st September 2001 just 11 days before 911 for reasons that have never been fully explained.
Kashoggi was almost certainly doing intelligence work as part of his brief as a journalist covering the Mujihadeen war against the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 1980s feeding reports back to Riyadh. He also worked as media adviser to Prince Turki bin Fasal when the latter was Saudi ambassador for Washington.
In fact contrary to most western media reports Kashoggi was not a political dissident. He was very much an insider who spent most of his career writing media articles presenting Saudi Arabia in a favourable light to gullible westerners.
What went wrong for Kashoggi was the arrival of Mohammed bin Salman as heir apparent to the Saudi throne. When MBS began to upset the Saudi status quo by trying to accumulate all the power and finances in his hands the losers were some of Kashoggis backers. My suspicion is that Kashoggi went into his self imposed exile in the US with the Washington post so that he could front up a campaign in the media by disaffected royals to get MBS replaced before he could become king. I think he was killed as part of this dynastic power struggle.
The irony of the situation is that if the Saudi government agents had simply chucked Kashoggi down the Consulate stairs enough times until he broke his neck or suffered a fractured skull they might have got away with passing it off as an accident. Indeed, if they had arranged for Kashoggi to simply fall of the bridge into the Bosphorus in some unfortunate accident we would probably not even be discussing his demise. It is the manner of his death which has played into the hands of MBS opponents. In fact if you wanted a scenario to undermine the new crown prince then you could not have come up with anything better than this set up. Of course, it is possible that Kashoggi did not die at all but was simply spirited away in a manner that did the most damage to MBS. The only people who know the truth are the ones who were in the embassy at the time or on the planes out of Turkey and I suspect they will soon all be dead.

Im guessing his/her profession is 'teacher'. I'm certainly getting that vibe.
Never quite sure if mumsnetters are real people, or just a massive exercise in trolling.

It is cultures that I have an issue with; Muslim, Chav, pikey, benefit bunny. We would be better off without any of them.
Colour doesn't come into it unless people want to use it against me / to push their own agenda.

Now looking at the genetically mangled faces some of them have above, the article below from the Pakistan press makes sense.
"Locals tell The Express Tribune they have no clue why such a large number of children are born with genetic disorders, including visual impairments. Some even claim the village (Charsadda) has been cursed, which is why nearly every household has a disabled child."
The truth is that in Pakistan as a whole 82.5% of parents are blood relatives of the 1st, 2nd or 3rd order, of these 6.3% are from the same family and 50% are cousins.
Unfortunately children cannot choose how culturally stupid their parents are.
