    Harley got a reaction from eight in The GREAT BIG General election thread   
    Any chance of moving the pure HPC stuff, as opposed to general election stuff, to a separate thread?  Or better still, it's own forum, called something like, oh let's see, "HPC"!
    Disclosure:  A HPC, bring it on!

    I too have found peace, except for Council (Pension) Tax and VAT.  Now if I could just stop reading DOSBODS.  I used to be a sympathetic sod, and one to one still am, but this big picture stuff has just taken too much of the p*ss.
    I really should stop wasting too much time here else I'll never get to £12,500 and have the peace of mind to stop working and tell them all to eff off!

    18 years on child bennies followed by no hope.  Or £50k debt for some dunce followed by no hope.  I see a pattern developing.  Maybe the lawyers will be waiting at the end of the road for all these kicked cans.

    So which twat decided to include contentious things like paying monthly in an early phase of the UC rollout?  Assuming this is a real issue rather than something made up to diss the system. 
    A bit of change management FFS - limit the contentious stuff to later.  A bit more cost maybe but maybe the true cost for an easier/effective implementation.
    And give them debit style cards rather than money to buy approved food, etc like some other countries do.  Stigma my arse.
    And the likes of her, having it easy on my taxes all my working life, can eff off.  Effing politicians and crap civil servants.

    I would say most posters on this forum who have a house either mortgaged or mortgage free are in favour of house prices dropping substantially.

    Exactly, if you have the discipline to save and look after the difference between rent and what you would be paying on maintenance and improvements, uitility bills and soft furnishings etc if you owned, you are quids in over time, and you can then put that cash towards your FIRE pot.

    Harley reacted to UnconventionalWisdom in The GREAT BIG General election thread   
    This is the whole problem with the UK. They have financialised the economy and house prices went up as a result of the manipulation once things went wrong. People believed they could get rich off of the only asset they understood. They actually dont understand how to take care of a place and dont give a crap because theres nothing the tennant can do. 
    I'm lucky, I live in a rented place owned by the church. They own about 20 flats so get tradespeople in to fix things. The tradespeople want to stay on their books so sort stuff straight away to a good standard. If renting like this was widespread, we'd be ok.

    I don't understand why this would help them. If they cannot budget then they must be forced to learn how. The vast majority of people on UC have learned, we only hear about the idiots.

    The non working working class never have any money 
    To be fair she is a victim of a system that let her away with not working for 19 years  and now expects her to find 35 hours a week of employment
    Would any employer pay someone of that age NLW with no experience who will whinge constantly over a smart 18yo or an EE migrant worker ?

    If you want to help those at the bottom of society you need to:
     
    build basic accomodation, like student blocks, for family units from single people up to extended families that have very good soundproofing, basic concrete furniture, under floor heating centrally controlled.  In short, engineer out the ability for scrotes to nick stuff or fuck it up.  Wardens run the blocks and have powers of eviction with no legal recourse.  If you get evicted from the block, you get nothing from the state at all.  Independent monitor system to catch the corrupt wardens.
    fresh food provided weekly.  each tenant has a lockable fridge.  when it's gone, it's gone.  
    cooking facilities, basic
    cash benefit paid weekly for clothes, fags, etc
    you behave, you get the chance to get moved up to a normal council estate
    you fuck about, you are properly homeless and your kids go into care
    oh, and you get an extra 100 quid a week if as a bloke you have the snip, or as a woman you have the tie.

    Harley got a reaction from Simon in School cuts website   
    Schools and other such service issues are a symptom, not the problem to be gixed.  Yes, we should cut the number of schools(!) and many other things by cutting the number of people.
    I left the countryside yesterday for a long torturous drive.  So many people.  Things are beyond crazy.  Takes an unboiled frog to see it.  Slave boxes everywhere.  And what do they all do that can have any real value other than "consume" so some fat cats can get fatter while we suffer the crap and pay for the schools and everything else.  With corporation tax the way it is, they don't. And being globalists, they have no vested interest in this particular country.  This attempt to goose GDP and further enrich the rich is insane. 
    When will people take back their country.  When they walk away from the MSM and all the other instruments of control, so maybe never, certainly too late.

    What is everyone else’s experience of this...
    There seems to be (almost exclusively) the supporters of only ONE party that are ramming their voting intentions down everyone’s throat, either on social media or on those garish signs in a front garden (South Manchester). (Having said that, the number of election boards on private property is noticeably lower than in previous elections).
    Anyone seeing much evidence otherwise...?

    Harley reacted to Tdog in The GREAT BIG General election thread   
    The revolution was in 2008 when Labour cheers on by the LIBCON gave hundreds of billions of pounds of other people's money to the banks and overleveraged.
    Corbyn is merely the inevitable outcome of that.
    As for Chequers i could not give a flying fuck what happens to it.

    I said the BoE, there is a difference. 
    To put it bluntly if anyone even vaguely infers that the BoE hasnt been controlling house prices for the last 2 decades they are a brain dead fucken moron.
    To be fair this website is full of boomers who own houses and benefit from the Tory party rigging house prices in their favour, so its not the best place to have views like mine.

    Harley reacted to Tdog in The GREAT BIG General election thread   
    There is no evidence? You are joking aren't you.
    As for Labour crashing house prices, see their policies towards landlords.
    Keep on voting Tory as you benefit from their free money, but at least recognise that you're voting for their brand of socialism.

    Harley reacted to Long time lurking in The GREAT BIG General election thread   
    IF a small word with a huge context ,the banks control house prices and they control the government the last 20 years is all the proof anyone needs 
    I`m not arguing about the logic of a cheaper houses i`m just pointing out the likely hood and for that to happen interest rates need to bee far higher

    Labour and the conservatives are both "the enemy". As are the rest of the political parties. 
    It really couldn't be more obvious to me. 
    There were hopes with UKIP and the brexit party but they appear to be cut from the same cloth too. 
    This is about the only policy I agree with that I have read that would actually be implemented if the people shouting it got into power. And it's the fucking BNP

    House prices are based on the ability to borrow and availability of credit.  
    The only way house prices fall is if the banks stop lending.

    It was one of my proudest days when I learnt where to place an apostrophe with nouns ending with "s".  Wierd but I was catapulted into a smirking elite.  This is not over.
