Just to clarify; I was fantasising about buying a NIB GZ Prem, not actually going to buy a NIB GZ Prem! That’d be mental right now.I suppose I'm lucky, I have a natural way to stop me buying any NIB.....I know my crown jewels would be removed with a blunt pair of bolt croppers courtesy of the boss....
Student debt interest is currently capped at 7.3%. Beer is not £7 a pint outside London. Less than 4 quid in my local and less than 2 at spoons. My sons both at uni hardly drink but not because of price as cheap supermarket booze is always available it's just that socialising no longer revolves around the pub.Young people are currently properly ****ed in the U.K.
my old starter flat is currently on the market for 3/4 of a million how the hell is anyone going to afford that.? Commuting in for a low paying starter job isn’t financially feasible with the size of train fares.
Students have 30-50k of loans and are now being charged 12% interest.
My son’s rent at uni is 8 grand. The total he can borrow is £5k. Guess who’s paying the shortfall? (In his defence he already works 3 days a week on top of his studying)
Beer is £7 a pint. (I now know so many young people who hardly drink)
The idea that people working full time need to resort to food banks in order to eat is obscene.
I’m honestly not surprised a lot of them are really going to struggle with even minor changes in interest rates. Even then a mortgage is likely to be cheaper than rent.
Just counting my blessings that I’m an old bastard. I’ll also be ****ed if I’m going to pay over 10k for a game
