Again this is similsr to parts of the U.k. wherby you see industrial estates built and empty as well as new housing estates etc...

From what I can see we're in a stasis bubble at the moment, we as a nation seem exempt from the most harsh changes happening elsewhere in the world but for how long?
I thought we would have started on the hard part like other countries, yet we seem not to have, which I find odd.
Is the government putting it off ? if so how? will the end result be a big steeper, harder,slide than other countries have experienced ?
People you see seem so oblivious to anything thats going on, it seems like I'm living in a different world even to my O.H. sometimes who thinks I'm crazy for prepping as I do, she says nothing but you know the "look" you get from the disbelievers...Sad
"Some say the end is near, some say we will see Armageddon soon...
I certainly hope we will, I sure could use a vacation from this silly shit."

You don't see many empty houses in the UK because the cost so much here due to planning laws.

Our problem is we can't get anyone to set up a business and who can blame them.

That's a surprise. Especially living up North SD.

If you go around Liverpool or Manchester, you'll find LOADS of empty houses. When I was working for Nestle and was out on the road, I would go to places like Burnley and Bolton, and there were places that were empty houses all along a street! No joke or exageration. I took a photo of it, I was that shocked.

Well I stand corrected. I know there are a few houses unoccupied but I must confess I am surprised at that. Very few houses around where I live.

I think it was Liverpool selling off houses for a fiver a few years ago. Just to get people moving in and do up what were empty boarded up properties. We are talking whole streets of empty houses.

I've got £10. Give me a mansion haha.

When I get my own house, I'm digging up the back garden and building me a bunker/shelter, with trap door, and all that kind of thing.
