Another TV Programme!

Yes but that seems to apply to the perceived righter wing sites on utube.

They would not censor the truth about the U.K. housing market.

If you want to get an audience utube is the best way. You would run your own site as well in tandem but the utube channel would feed and compliment.... Read More

Another TV Programme!

Can I make a really useful suggestion to fergus and property 118.

I don’t watch that much tv anymore, but instead get a huge amount of info on the world from all the different utube channels.

The information on there is eye opening and it is where the truth in society sits. The mainstream media all over the west no longer has the monopoly on the truth and instead we can now see this is the same as Russian propaganda pushed out to its population.

So start your own utube channel covering the topics specific to housing. The audience will be small at first but it will grow.

Douglas carswell (ex MP) has just set up his new channel and I am sure he would welcome a discussion about housing provision with fergus.

Property 118 is missing a trick if it has not considered running its own tv productions on utube.... Read More

Couldn't make it up - Unless you work for the Guardian!

All LL don’t seem to be aware we are in very dangerous times. Can no one else feel the atmosphere in the country?

We are beneficiaries of the 2008 financial blow up and mass printing of money. All home owners are, but the consequence of supporting one half of society has made life harder for the have nots.

This is why we are hearing real political thought constantly in all the medias about rebalancing this unfairness.

Eg, this week on Jeremy vine they were genuinely discussing a Jeremy Corbyn led idea of seizing all private schools and passing them over to the state. Bang, no private education.

We have the idea out there that tenants should have the right to buy a rented property. Does this also mean at a big discount like council houses?

Has anyone seen the videos on utube about ANTIFA in the USA disrupting day to day life in cities like Portland? The climate protesters are doing the same here and getting quality airtime on channel 4 news.

I am worried and I am not in a position to get away like mark has done.

Our economy still over spends by £25 bn and we have an over hang of £1.6 trillion to pay back. What happens at the next down turn in the 2020’s?

One idea pushed around is to not use QE at the top of the system next time but to stuff it in from the bottom. This would mean giving everyone over 18 £10-20k to use as they want. This sounds radical but we are living in radical times and it seems not many people actually see this.... Read More

This type of talk is really worrying me and i see it more and more. I am sure shelter are pushing this agenda behind the scenes.

Shelter ask for Landlords views

I have completed and left my contact details. I would also consider writing a blog.
I would like to show the side of land lording which is not well appreciated. The high development / upfront costs we bear and then take a rent over time to repay our activity.
This is how life is supposed to work in all areas, but shelter doesn't seem to appreciate this fact. It's the same for a student. You invest in education, load up on debt (nowadays), but over the longer term you repay the debt and make a surplus over your lifetime that you would not have accrued had you not done the education.
This is certainly how the housing works in my mind and this model should not be denigrated. Shelter need to understand this fact. I assume they want to focus on the hyper hard working landlords who have 100 houses approx and now appear super rich and arrogant. We need to get them to focus on what effort got them to this position. It seems rich / successful people in society nowadays are demonised because it all seems so easy and they have excess wealth.

So i would certainly like to write a blog detailing a before and after photo shoot on houses i do up. Each one takes 6 months work and i will renovate most things - D/G, new heating and electrics, new bathroom and kitchen, new plastering and decoration, improvement of insulation and vapour extraction, landscaping of garden, any roof problems solved etc etc.

I do all the work myself and will sometimes have a labourer. I don't get paid for all this work, but in the long run it keeps my costs down and overall return higher.... Read More
