    Yeah, all the immigrants coming in balance things out most probably. :p

    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.

    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.
