    My real issue with them is that they force everyone else to be speculators too. No one has to buy stocks or other investments, but we do have to live somewhere, and that decision should not be basically an unhedged punt where you stand to lose 50% of the value of your chief asset.

    I'm sure there is a point here if any sense could be made of your made up words. The German banking thing is Deutsche Bank only and the Italians may have to NAMAfy some of their banks. Otherwise nothing to report.

    I’m forecasting it next month… but then I’m not qualified in that regard.

    If local government is not providing rental properties then its a normal market which the current economic system supports. It is not the people who are investing in the sector its the lack of goverment input into self same market. The private rental system in Germany for instance has a lot of very positive features.

    just make sure you will not need a divorce from your gay spouse when it comes to selling your house in Belfast. Ulster will indeed say, No ( for tax purposes )
