    I live on HPC!
  1. Prescott shouldn't get off scot free - he doesn't seem to get a mention in the chart above.
  2. Houses that had been split into flats would revert to houses. The average size of a home in Britain would likely increase rather than being the tiniest in europe and getting ever smaller.

    Thanks. So more HtB support? - because they don't build or buy houses themselves. Extremely rough calculation just to get a ball park idea of the amounts involved - £8 billion (roughly £44 billion divided by 5) is only about £27000 per house (for 300,000 each year) per year - so they're adding roughly £9000 per house each year? Or they're keeping the same subsidy per house but building more of them with that ball park level of subsidy? ?

    Is 44 billion more than at present. Is it extra.

    300,000 new homes a year on average by the mid 2020s. So no need for them to do anything at all until after the next general election.

  10. To save HPC computer space, avoid clutter and make it easier to read I haven't copied the text and images etc in your essays and archives in my post. I've only skimmed the content as I'm busy and it seems to repeat a lot of stuff you've already posted several times on HPC in exchanges both with myself and with numerous others. Believe me little or nothing in your current work on this thread accurately describes my stance or my opinion on UK house sizes, house prices, marketing etc - your repeated ad hominems speak volumes about yourself. You refer again to my initial post on this thread which was. My various replies to you already cover this including when I explained my initial post. I repeat my initial post was a passing remark about how tiny the average UK home is and there's nothing else to be read in it. I think it is always worth remarking how tiny UK homes are in comparison to many if not most other countries. You do say Surprised to read that I looked back on this thread again and I do question whether you've got that just a bit out of perspective and out of balance. and you say I had thought you were sincere in that January exchange when you explained your circumstances to me to justify what seemed to me to be similarly inaccurate comments on and interpretations of my posts at that time. As for your intellect ad hominem - you so perfect. I think mine is at least on a par with yours.
  11. . No it's not. Even the BIS that he is a director of has admitted as much (that it's failed) in its published papers. It admits that "unconventional monetary policy" is a failure except to line people like Draghi's pockets.
  12. I just wish I could give you an uptick on that CoN. Actually more than one. 1+ will have to do.
  13. I push back against people who misrepresent people's posts and try to attribute mistaken associations, suggestions and meanings in them that don't exist along with ad hominems etc. I also push back against tiny UK homes with associated crazy prices and those who align themselves with the lenders who feed off that.
