Congratulations! Britain's landlords are the best in Europe!

Stands to reason, dunnit?

The services they provide tenants must be twice as good as landlords in other countries, or else they wouldn't be able to charge twice as much in rent.

Unless I've missed something...

Good to see Britain top of the class yet again. Actually our superiority to frogs, wogs and other inferior beings stems from the genius of our local authorities which have bumped up house prices by refusing people land on which to build. This principle should be extended to other areas. For example if we banned farmers from growing food, then we’d have the most expensive food, and hence obviously the best quality food in Europe.

All The World's a Scam. And That's a Good Thing

If anyone objects by all means send me your example of an enterprise that is not at least partly a scam(for the part that actually makes a 'profit') and I'll concede. The deal is if I can prove you wrong then you must do the same for me, quid pro quo. Deal?

How will the Tories respond?

RM, exactly.

RS, nobody can be bothered arguing with you any more. No doubt you disagree.

R, good spot, thanks.

R, if they have any sense, they will simply ignore him.

You know when you hire a car? You can hire a little, cheap car or you can pay twice as much to hire a bigger, expensive car. You might get better service hiring the bigger car but I wouldn't bet on it being twice as good, would you?

Frank, I think the quality/price relationship is a straight line only if you use a logarithmic scale.
