|Wonder if Glengary will grab a share of that Mexican Wall contract.|
|"the south east of England is "apparently" the most densely populated part of Europe"
That's my point - we build for large numbers on a very small proportion of our land, time to relax planning laws so urban areas are not so crammed!
What's wrong with building on green spaces? 97% of the UK is not built upon - it's hardly going to disappear is it?|
|the south east of England is apparently the most densely populated part of Europe.
how many more people do you want crammed in.? In my view there should be no building on green spaces and houses should be built on brownfield sites in urban areas.|
|"So let's just build anything anywhere and cover the country in houses.
To hell with green spaces."
no - but lets look at the facts - read the report by the UK National Ecosystem Assessment (NEA), which states that 3% of the UK land mass is actually built upon!!!!
yes, just 3%, which is the second lowest in Europe!
There are plenty of green spaces.
Most people automatically assume that green spaces will be concreted over, however, thats due to most people living in urban areas, which are very densely populated, compared to elsewhere in Europe, hence everybody feels the UK is over-crowded than it really is.
Don't let the facts get in the way of your biased misconceptions!|

|What a load of rubbish that article is.
No shortage of bricks.........ask the merchants first and then Ibstock.
Have a look at MBH a small interesting brick manufacturing which I am buying into slowly.........|
|Not so sure about what you have said KEVPH. Some odf the Placing shares will have gone into a dealing account and the others in the black box.
The market is very mixed towards house bilders so this is not going to be a dealing share but one where it can be purchased on a drip feed basis and for that and a number of other reasons I have started my buys today.
That is how I see matters........|
|As I said,over done, topped up @167.|
|I'm ok with the institutional buys and as pointed out, breaks up the 47%. It's not like this kind of volume hits the open market. It'll probably blow over in a couple of days,if not tomorrow, and then resume it's merry march north. Should be a few quid to be made for those who bought in on the back of the fear. GLA|
|Is this fall not a little over the top?|
|Glad I sold, would be interested buying back in around 150p|
|The worry is that Bain clearly think 175p is a good price, which rather caps the upside given they have another 37% to go. On the other hand buyers were also happy with the price, which lends support. Thinking about buying back in (traded post brexit) but not sure.|
|how "around" placing price: minus 10p? ...pretty meaningless.
Now at 166.5...|
|Price floor around placing price. A few new investors on board. Will recover imo - seen it before with quality large cap companies. Strong hold for me having bought around 140p recently. dyor|
|What floor do you mean??
At 168 now those with placing shares will not be happy.
But looks cheap at this price.|
|40.5m placed with IIs at 175p. Kind of puts a floor here imo.|
|Had these since the float and my major concern was the percentage of stock held by the owners. This is the reason why.|
|Big drop this am....|
