It does actually say "live". Terrible typography though.

Fab! Bring back home equity loans immediately. Because we're worth it!

Car traffic jams are everywhere. Lots of drivers taking stupid risks to get ahead in the jam

Hotel prices have gone nuts

I've noticed a lot more L & N/L drivers on the road. I've noticed a lot of people driving really badly in this category but not always but I'm going to say in main. Taking incredible risks or simply moronic mistakes that betray a lack of situational driving awareness. It's actually very worrying.

We probably need a Driving 101 thread at this point hybridised with "insurance" costs.

Jams only because sub prime lending has taken over car financing, car deals being offered to people who really cannot afford them, no job? don't worry, here ya go - it's the next blow up bubble and not just here

The increasingly frightening thing for me, which others have commented on here, but seems to get limited coverage on MSM is:
- the economy has probably grown by close to 20% in last 4 years.
- Government revenue is up around the same.
- we are still as a country borrowing to fund OpEx (which is madness).
- we have not really decreased the state’s debt burden bar refinancing the interest payments.
- Brexit could throw a spanner at us, that could plunge us into deficit easily.
- we are still as a country borrowing to fund OpEx (which is madness!!).
- we are still as a country borrowing to fund OpEx (WHICH IS F#CKING MADNESS!!).
