This from a man who braggs about owning a farm (with lots of land), a flat in Poland and another flat in London (worth 300,000 GBP and can be rented for 1,000GBP). I suppose you were not born at the right time, you won these things in a lucky bag. The word "hypocrite" springs to mind.
I don't own the flat. I've never owned property until two years ago. Even if I did, you missed the point, completely, again.
I could not buy that flat, in in thirty years, never-mind in ten. Nobody who is leaving school in the UK today will be able to buy property in ten years with simply hard work becuase the prices are ridiculous. The house price to average wage ration in Polish cities is ever worse than the UK.
Harry was lucky to buy when prices were affordable over ten years ago and calling 'young people of today' lazy becuase its now impossible indeed makes him a smug, lucky bastard. He constantly slags Milky off for being an unemployed layabout and therefore unable to buy a home.
Well, the best advice I can give to someone leaving school in the UK today would be; get a university degree with a loan and either a) bum about doing low paying jobs, travel the world have fun, or b) emigrate and never return to the UK.
The very worst option is to try and become a wage slave, save for 20 years for a deposit so you can just about own a house when you retire, (which will be worth pretty much what it originally cost in real terms). You have to be mad to commit yourself to a life of paying for my generations (the boomers) comfortable retirement.
This refers to the UK, but people like Harry are the same all over. They have to realise that there are other options, like.. leaving. When governments give you a property tax of 50% (of the rental income/mortgage), its not tenants who end up paying and when you combine this you end up with falling house prices.
School leavers today should memorise the words 'Go F*** yourself' for use against anyone who suggests a career, mortgage and indefinite servitude. Become a bum, loot and rob from the rich bastards with houses, they owe you. When they die you can inherit the house and become unproductive property owner.
must be a shytehole at that price..;)
Shitholes go for 250K in London, £300k gets you a 40m2 flat in Battersea.
