Why is it that they are allowed to block half of the road next to Tesco to unload ?
Yesterday it caused chaos at rush hour. why don’t they unload in the road they have ?
I’m sure if it was a car parked there you’d have fifteen parking wardens there in a blink !

Harwoods are going soon so don't worry, have you not noticed how empty it's getting ? I'm guessing it will be more flats or housing .

Bob can't be that old if he writes "six pence" - it was always a sixpence or, if you're really ancient, a tanner/half a bob.

It will be gone very soon. People are only buying those status symbols because they have spare cash which would normally be swallowed up by mortgage payments.
As soon as the mortgage rate returns to a normal level, it’s goodbye to the new cars and the bifold door extensions.
Anyone who starts to feel the pinch will immediatley try to ditch the fancy car as a first cut back. The market will be flooded, prices will collapse and nobody will be buying luxury new cars. Simples.

Oh dear Gardener, you seem to have no idea of economics
You say ‘when interest rates return to a normal level’, so what is that exactly? Well from the end off WW2 to 2000 the average rate was 8% so let’s use this as an example
Therefore if you borrowed 200k which is not uncommon you’d have to repay an annual interest amount of, well even you can work that out.
Remember this is out of your taxed income. Unless incomes rises dramatically, which will fuel inflation, this will be unaffordable for the majority of borrowers, leading to financial Armageddon
There will be no rise of interest rates to ‘normal’ levels for many years to come, the cat is out of the bag on that one.

Well I declare there is an expert amongst us!
So, interest rates won’t rise purely because people won’t be able to afford their mortgage repayments. Oh, ok then, everything’s gonna be fine then thanks.

Obviously short memory you’ve saddled yourself with a hefty mortgage without stress testing your repayment ability, hence your hasty dismissal of my prediction. I wouldn’t want to hear it either.
I remember when I took out my first mortgage in 1988 at a very good fixed rate of 13.5%.
Let me guess how much you owe... hmmm 200k by any chance?

Bought my first place when rates were around 8% and have enjoyed them dropping to nothing. Borrowed heavily and paid back as much as I could afford. Very little mortgage now, nice house, nice car. We’ve never had it so good.
