Bassman Posted March 22, 2006 Share Posted March 22, 2006 [quote user="Miki"]PS. We put a Carolina door on our first house Miki, they were cheap and better than the crumbling bit of wood that was already there(not an ex-council house by the way) LOLOLOLHave no fear Bassman, we fitted dozens of 'em, along with Kentucky doors by the gross ! It's the customer is always right syndrome !! I have to say though, Blair may not be many peoples cup of tea and as a socialist, he is out of sync but to go back to some old socialist policies, would not be a smart move BUT let's be fair here, all those that have come here in recent years have benefitted greatly from the huge hike in prices. Us, well we bought our second place at the bottom of yet another Tory induced slump and the French house prices where we bought, were not (for the greater part, regardless of what one is told) reliant on Brits buying, so they were selling at French prices, not at a reduced slump related price, although the French have had years where prices have slipped but sadly, not when we have bought !![/quote] LOLOL I don't think Blair has ever hears the word socialist TBH The only reason we have been able to fulfill our dream of owning a home in Brittany is that my parents ( dad was a brickie, mum worked in the Co-oP) died and left me a half share in their house and some money, which suprised me as for the last few years of my fathers life my mother was having to pay a fortune every month to keep him in residential care ( none of their children were in a position to help as we are split up all over the country/world ala the "get on your bike and look for work" idea and the nearest me (only 100 miles away) was in no financial state to assist) yes the country my father fought for in the war, suffered a serious industrial injury for , the party he supported all his life took most of what they had worked and saved for to look after him in his final years niiiiiice [:^)] Yes I (by reason of their dying) have benefitted from astronomical house price rises but that still doesn't make it right in my view Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
