This blog entry is quite old, Feb/2008. And it links to a Times column equally old. But it is still interesting.

[quote]
This pro-crash lobby[b] (((she is talking about us :) )))[/b] accuses the economists at Nationwide and Halifax of publishing figures that give a falsely optimistic view. Journalists who report these numbers are deemed to be either mouthpieces for lenders or determined to support the value of their own property investments. [b]The motives of this online fraternity[/b] that longs for the human misery produced by a market collapse [b]are a mystery[/b]. Perhaps they hope that if they spread sufficient gloom, their rantings will become a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Can really be telling the truth there? That she genuinely can't see that we "lobby" for affordable housing?? Really?? Is this really "a mystery"??

The column's author is:

[quote]Anne Ashworth, editor of The Times’ Bricks and Mortar section collected a hat-trick of prizes at an awards night for journalists working in the property sector organised by specialist website headlineproperty.

She picked up the prizes for Best Property Supplement, Property Editor of the Year and overall Property Journalist of the Year.

The event was held at The Brewery, in the City of London.

The final shortlists were reviewed by a panel of over 40 judges including leading property journalists and industry professionals.

Indeed, it was a crash. About 40% if you had anything but Sterling or Zim Dollars.
