    Funny, I've only noticed Labour come up with stupid targets that they promise to hit if they get elected.

    Sounds like this clause is used so the vendor can't challenge you if the sale doesn't proceed.

    Don't accept the offer.
    Counter at $700k.
    Watch them squirm, give more excuses, and after you confirm the price is $700k yet another time, grudgingly agree to $700k.

    Me too.
    I guess we are all pretty relaxed about the environment.
    All the recent publicity about climate change and the Extinction Rebellion protestors has hyped up the media but not many others.

    Buyers are usually honest - you can't argue with cash.
    Dishonest vendors are the problem:
    - Buy a leaky home for a lowball amount.

    Should we ban filters on cigarettes?

    I saw an item on the news about the rubbish on beaches.
    In this particular footage, there were quite a few cigarette filters on the shore.
    So I though, why not remove the filter from the cigarette?...

    I wouldn't expect to make money in that situation.
    Some people resort to dishonest methods and manage to make some money.

    Of course.
    That happens when the market is rising.
    I remember Dean L. saying he never did any renovations and he made a fortune.

    "Make money when you buy" is a cute saying by the snake-oil merchants - usually to their victims as they flog off mediocre deals.

    I don't need an actual number to tell me that there is a shortage.

    Most people standing for council have a strong ambition to get involved in social engineering.

    That's not true.
    One of those guys in that video said there was an oversupply and it would end badly.
    He was right.
    Property experts know these things.
    Economists don't.

    That there was an oversupply of houses in Ireland.
    The subsequent crash confirmed the oversupply.

    In this case, the new rules result in a crazy situation.
    You'll need an enormous heat pump in the lounge.
    The heat won't travel into the dining or kitchen areas.

    Sorry, you have got this bit wrong.
    You can install the heat pump.
    You can increase the rent to cover the cost of the heat pump.
    If the tenant doesn't like it, then the tenant is allowed to leave.

    I don't think you are allowed to install 3 heaters.
