    UK House prices: News & Views

    Didn't Fred Harrison say it won't be until 2018 that the bubble pops? edited to add: just checked: 2019 Well, according to the 18-year cycle theory, the mid-cycle downturn is still five years away. That means the agonising over bursting bubbles is premature. But it also means that the house price take-off, which began early this time, will be all the more painful next time. Most of the pain, of course, will not be felt by London property owners. The proportion of high loan-to-value mortgages has reached 25% in the north-east, compared to 7% in London, according to data provided by chartered surveyors e.surv. The economics of apartheid continue to operate, with a vengeance, thanks to the cash subsidies and indemnities from Cameron’s coalition government. from: http://www.sharetherents.org/return-sub-prime/

    Bob Hoye cites the drop in London property prices as a key indicator in his Talk Digital report on 22/08/2014 [podcast].

    Yes, I blame HelpTheBuilders®. It has simply served to inflate prices by the amount of "free" money on offer.

    UK House prices: News & Views

    Houses are selling like hotcakes in the north of scotland. Prices are definitely higher than before. We are now thinking we should buy, mostly because we are fed up with dealing with intrusive landlords. Our rent will have gone up +10% in 2.5 years, to £1000 by the end of this year. For £200 more/month we can buy a larger, older home, and walk to work instead of commuting by car. I still hate the idea of buying in this overheated market, but I would like a bit of freedom to do as I please.

    Capital Controls - Are they coming?

    I agree, they are treating your money as if it is their's! Shocking. One more reason not to deal with the high street banks. I hadn't heard that news story. Pretty shocking. I hope it is a wake-up call.

    Carolyn Dean – Magnesium: The Miracle Mineral

    I read her book, it's very good. Taking magnesium citrate tablets, I am sleeping much more soundly, not waking in the night. And muscle aches after sport are pretty much gone. I got some of the magnesium "oil" as well, and rub that directly into my skin. Tingles a bit, but usually only if I am a bit low on it.

  14. from the bbc Co-op Bank considers alternative rescue plan options The bank faces a £1.5bn shortfall Continue reading the main story Related Stories Co-op Bank unveils rescue plan Co-op Group reports big banking loss Former Co-op boss says he warned bank over-stretched The Co-operative Bank is to look into alternatives to a current £1.5bn rescue plan. The bank has already suggested the financing will come from sales of its insurance businesses, a bond issuance to existing bondholders, and capital from the Co-operative group. On Friday the Co-op said an independent committee would be formed to discuss other options. It will be chaired by the bank's chairman, Richard Pym. The bank's current plan does not involve any help from taxpayers, but will mean bond-holders will lose out in the short term. Financing problems have been an issue for the Co-operative for some time. Earlier this year it reported a loss of £709m, with nearly £500m in write-downs from its merger with the Britannia Building Society. It was also compelled to pull out of a proposed purchase of 600 Lloyds Bank branches, after its funding shortfalls came to light.
  15. Cooperative Bank UK : a bail-in? Anyone familiar with the bank? Any ideas about the likelihood of a bail-in? I got an acct here years ago after hearing it was an 'ethical' bank. Thought that it was well capitalised a few years back when others were under strain. But alas this is not the case?
