  1. "Between 2013 and 2018 more than half the sales in England made by Redrow, Bellway, Taylor Wimpey, Barratt and Persimmon involved Help to Buy." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48610977 Disgusting. I can't wait to see the next big idea that "solves" the housing crisis by further inflating prices...
  2. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/business/2019/jun/12/pendragon-warns-of-annual-loss-as-it-slashes-prices-of-used-cars Pendragon, Britain's biggest car dealer, lost 23% on the stock market today after warning of "significant" losses. I know many others here have much more sophisticated ways of tracking leads and lags, but I've always thought of care sales as a great indicator of the wider economy. New car sales down 4.6% for the year in May.
  3. I wonder if this is playing out across the wider economy, and in what numbers?
  4. An article in the Guardian about the Peterborough by election. Places a lot of the blame for falling income and community anger on buy to let - https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jun/02/peterborough-prepares-for-byelection-that-could-see-first-brexit-party-mp
  5. A big part of a boxers punching power is from HOW FAST you can move your mass. Adding mass (fat) that does not help MOVE mass (muscle) is not helpful. In fact, adding too much of the wrong type (slow twitch) of muscle doesn't help. Boxers/fighters tend to train EXPLOSIVE strength, because speed and explosivity is so vital to them.
  6. Did you read the full article and think about what the picture is actually saying? http://boxingscience.co.uk/explosive-training-boxing/
  7. Jesus fucking Christ. Just stop.
  8. What are you on about? When you know nothing about a topic, its OK to just stay silent. You don't have to give your bullshit opinion on every issue
  9. So are you saying that no towns specifically have 4 months voids... they ALL do?
  10. What towns have an average 4 month void rate on rental property? What data did you use to come to this conclusion?
  11. Inflation rises to 2.1% in April, above the BoE's 2% target, mainly due to rising energy costs - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48364544
  12. The demographics. As ever, your knowledge sharing is appreciated
