    as chancellor, he allowed, even encouraged a boom based on debt (buy to let, rising house prices, release of equity, etc.)

    just because the american bubble burst first doesn't mean Comrade Gordon is any less to blame for the situation here.

    What, you don't think he should have left it all to the "invisible hand of the market" to decide then ?

    You think he should have introduced credit controls, house price regulation, taken away the right to buy to let, and generally reduced the freedom of individuals to do as they please ?

    Never mind about referring to him as "Comrade Gordon" ……….you sound like a right little commie to me.

    Well done geezer 8)

    Its funny really if I have a problem with Clarkson and his like its that he spouts shite but never gets taken to task on it as he just plays the dumb ass. You seem somewhat similar backhander.

    If ernie or even grumm had asked, I might.
    But they're either not interested or are intelligent enough to know what I mean. As you are obviously not then no, I won't.

    I know exactly what you mean, you're insinuating some bullshit about how white men are discriminated against, despite all the evidence showing the opposite, I just can't be arsed listening to it.

    I reckon it's been clear that backhander would rather restrict his comments to just personal insults.

    He is probably working on his theory : "Better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt" And is therefore keeping his mouth firmly shut :idea:

    I'm really not very intelligent – despite any evidence to suggest the contrary.

    So take it as "not interested".

    Ernie, I really don't think that you can criticise people for personal insults now can you?
    I actually firmly believe in equal opportunities.
    Firms/govt etc etc should not be allowed to "target" any group regardless of colour or kin. The fire service/police etc should not have minority targets put upon them. I don't feel victimised and am certainly not a racist by any stretch. ANY discrimination is wrong.

    Ernie, I really don't think that you can criticise people for personal insults now can you?

    Now that's not really very fair is it ? ……. I've always tried to combine my personal insults with a "point" which I'm trying to make. I accused you on the other hand, of restricting your comments to "just" personal insults.

    Having said that, ever since discovering that many punters on here are right posh "polite types", I've tried to cut right down on the personal insult stakes.

    Haven't you noticed ?……….it seems like ages since I last called someone a **** 8)

    Don't you know anything? There are two subtle but important points to the Ownership of the Means of Production. The first being that owning the Means of Production is not the same thing as owning physical property, nor is it equal to owning money. Rather OMP refers to a cultural practice in which a few individuals within a larger corporation (or company) control and decide what is done with the entire profit created by that corporation.

    You big bum poo.

    You big bum poo.

    If that was directed at me, I'd rather be called a **** thanks.

    And as for me referring to whatshisname as a "right little commie", that was in regard to wanting Brown to interfere and to not allow the market to operate freely.

    @ grumm

    I come back here to remind myself how good I have it :wink:

    I spend about 2/3 of the year in California but I come back to see Family & friends.
    ps the UK is sh1t, I used to think it was ok but after a yr of living in the States Ive started to see it for what it is. An over priced, over crowded, dark, unfriendly place where the rich get richer, the political system is bankrupt, the people have NO effective say in the way in which they are governed, a country where the past time seems to be focused on how p1ssed you can get on a Friday night. The US isnt perfect thats for sure but its immeasurably preferable to here.

    The trouble with California is that it doesn't have a resiliant water supply, is becoming increasingly prone to wildfires, due to drought, and lies on the San Andreas fault. Lots of the major population zones aren't too high above sea level either. And when catastrophy does strike all the bad people have guns.

    Other than that it's probably OK though.

    And what exactly do you mean by "the political system is bankrupt"?

    Easy to say, but empty words.

    Agree with you re' the alcohol culture though, but that is a symptom of underlying problems that are common throughout the western world.

    :lol:

    California, the bankrupt state where they are running out of water – I also seem to remember George Bush stealing a recent election.

    where the rich get richer

    Definitely not like California then.

    I agree about it being dark and unfriendly here and everyone being obsessed with getting pissed on a friday night though. I swear if we had California's weather everyone here would stop being such whiny bastards.

    Oh, forgot to add that it is probably the region of the world that is most going to suffer in the post oil economy. Just how will California continue when it becomes expensive to drive?

    San Andreas fault – not if. When. :twisted:

    You know the weather is probably the single biggest contributing factor in everything – the UK probably would be a lot happier if the Sun shone just a little more..

    Im in Norcal (Northern CA) so we dont get the wildfire problems & yes drought is an issue but it has yet to affect me – thats not saying it wont though. Drought controls orders are in effect in some parts of Marin for a lot of the year (I live in Marin).
    What does the height of someones house above sea-level have to do with anything? If you cant swim I understand but otherwise..As for the earthquake risk, well most folk out here dont worry about it. You just be a good boy scout & "be prepared". That took me about 6 months before I could accept that…& yes its gonna go – no doubt (but it wont be the San Andreas fault but the Hayward which would trash Oakland but hey Oaklands a dump anyway :wink: )

    What will drives CA's economy? Bio-med is pretty strong, Silicon Valley will remerge under another guise. They say something like 70% of the Worlds Venture capital is located within 15 miles of Berkely & trust me there is a lot of very bright people here – they wont have a problem thinking up a way to make money..I just hope they dont find me out! As for petrol well – it costs me £55 odd to fill my car here & in the US its about £25 so I would worry about your wheels before you worry about mine..

    As for bankrupt – I mean morally bankrupt. MP expenses? Latest I heard is Ann Keen is refusing to explain what the £12k she claimed for a home office was used for! If Ma Keen tried that on in the US they would simply de-select her, cant do that here can we? Perhaps if MP's were more accountable & knew if they fecked up they would be out of job perhaps they would behave a little better..You trying keeping your job after a stunt like that..

    Oh & Mandy (unelected & unloved) is aiming for the post of Foreign Secretary..

    crikey final edit: I never sad that CA wasnt corrupt or broke – I just said I prefer it a hell of lot more than the UK.

    Well, I'm one of the apparently few people on here who actually LIKE the good ol' US of A, but after your infantile generalisations about what it's like to live in the UK all I can say is:

    Here's 10p for the fare, now p1ss off. :mrgreen:

    Infantile huh? Well my thoughts are based on 35 odd yrs of living in the UK & Ill take your 10p & leave you here in the damp & the dark & the overcrowding, enjoy!

    USA better than briton?

    2 weeks holiday a year the norm, no employment protection. Expensive healthcare that does not reach a large % of the population. 5% of the worlds population 25% of the worlds pollution. Look at the murder rate

    TJ never said it was better – just said I preferred it. Ive just made a choice that not all like – similar to you & helmets really :wink:

    ps I wonder how the UK would look if I choose to take a similar dim view? Not that I can be bothered..

    Ernie,

    found a link for you here

    I'm intrigued on what basis 'consumer confidence' could be increasing. Mind you the average punter probably thinks as long as they can afford to watch the footy on SKY at their local boozer then things are going well!!

    {Link mended for you – Mod}

    Certainly the term 'dead cat's bounce' is being used to describe the housing situation.

    and all of this because tv's jeremy-fat-ar45-clarkson said;

    (in a round about fashion)

    "Britain isn't perfect, but it's still a lot better than most of the alternatives"

    which, i can't disagree with…

    The student stuff is just revolting. Most universities had to lower the number of A level because otherwise no-one would get in. People could get onto a math course without knowing what a logarithm is.

    As for the johnny foreigner being barely able to speak english, well I must admit my grammar isn't quite to the level of a native but I think I am understandable, specially when I post on here with two different egos and no-one managed to see my other me wasn't english…
