1 bedroom flats in cambridge can reach (Dr Evil voice) £1 Million pounds.
Yeah, all the immigrants coming in balance things out most probably.
Say what you want about those Labour bastards. But they have kept the economy pretty stable. I put it down to all those stealth taxes.
Move to Texas lol I have a 3 bedroom house in a nice part of town and it was only 90k brand new the same home in CA starts around 400k depending on the area it's a Centex home.
My family has owned the same house in San Francisco since 1980. It was bought for $170,000, and now would run for at least $2 million. Thanks to rent/tax control laws, my parents pay the equivalent tax rates of someone living in a shack in the worst part of the City ($2-3,000 a year as opposed to $50,000 or so). If it weren't for those laws they would have had to sell the house long ago.
My Mum's cousin in london owned 4/5 floors in a house(didn't have middle) and needed it to have full house, and they had to pay half a million Pound(£500,000) for it and its 1 bedroom, 3 years and they got a pretty good deal they said. But they are both Archetects(SP?). And my grandad was going to buy a 3 bedroom House in Scarborough for £4000 about twenty years ago, but my Grandma wouldn't let him and its now worth £200,000, yup you read that right a 50x increase! Shame really.
nope other way round we are controlling the immigrants and stuff like that and make they get jobs etc
pluss were making parts for more aircraft all over again
