HPC on TV! London Tonight

62 posts in this topic

I think we shouldn't be too harsh on the poor woman. In the politest possible way, I have to say that she isn't the brightest of people. It really does look as if the Directors at channel 4 may well have some vested interest in using this woman as a tool.

We need to ask ourselves how can someone this uneducated and silly be given a platform to promote debt.
Who chose to put her in the Channel 4 Programmes in the first place? who decided to air the programmes? and who authorised/came up with the property programme ideas? This woman was created and used as a tool by the directors of C4 either to promote their own VI in the housing market or those of the C4 sponsors.

Surely to get angry at her would be like getting angry at the bulldozer that was used to knock your house down, instead of the person driving it?

The less intelligent are often used at tools, just look a G.W.Bush. Does anyone really think that someone with such a low IQ is really running the country?

I think showing the folloy of what the pawns say is helpful. I think it is also useful to highlight the VI of the controllers of the pawns and publicise it in any way possible.

Anyone any idea what the VI of C4 is, or are they just pandering to the wants of the homeowners?

When all is said and done, we all found HPC because we took responsibility for our own lives with regards to buying a house, and did some research on the internet. As 1 in 3 people have internet access then 1/3 people have the opportunity to do some digging of their own before they take out such a big loan that will affect their lifelong financial situation. Kirsty has never held a gun to anyones head and made them buy a house. Anyone who would base their home buying decision on a TV programme is being irresponsible.

Agreed but the programmes lead to pressure from parents etc to get onto the ladder. So even those who have never seen it are indirectly affected by it.

You lot are the best! I am sat here crying my eyes out with laughter and just forced my husband to watch this and read all of your posts. I am a believer in what goes up must come down and totally agree with all of your comments here. I thought things would come down sooner - but the crash will come - I really hope that it doesn't leave some people in trouble as that's not the reason we're all waiting! People I talk to still think that growth of 4% in the market is good news when they're probably paying 5% interest on a non-repayment mortgage so they're just renting from the bank and paying to do the place up to boot. All of my friends have been busy remortgaging to pay for home improvements with money that isn't actually real until you sell the house for what it's supposed to be worth. I have been telling everyone to be careful and to look for the signs but they just want to 'do the done thing' for some reason. I love renting - we have two extra bedrooms and a better location for our money, we might not be able to make improvements and have a designer pad but I feel a lot freer and less restricted thanks to not having a 25 year commitment.

Agreed, but it will leave many in serious trouble. The longer the crash takes to happen the more people will eventually be affected, so it is in almost everyones interest to get it over with. Unfortunately, life is not like that.

If you listen to Kirsty you can hear her say that... the reason why we wont get a house price crash is

1) Interest rates are low (Well, looks like they are forecast to rise now)
2) Unemployment is at a historical low. (Week after week.. almost day after day we hear of job loses)

She took the existence of this website far to personally to be an independent market expert/analyst to the public, her outburst proves this. She should be dropped by any channel especially as very soon she will be VERY unpopular by the masses.

And on the accusations thrown at us for engineering the coming crash proves how dim the woman really is!

How can an analysis of the UK and World housing market by the people on this website and the readers of this website (Which is a small percentage of total population that watch horrible programs like hers) bring the market down?

She better be able to plead stupidity in court when all the people that financially ruin themselves start looking
to the people who were in a trusted position who gave unprofessional and biased advice.

Maybe this has been discussed before, but people in extremis can be totally irrational. I wonder if this site might be held up as a scapegoat, ie 'HPC wouldn't stop talking about it so they made it happen'. It's pretty difficult mustering up a lynch mob to attack a web-site, though - I hope.....

And Granny gave her the deposit. Didn't have to work too hard to get started with then, did she? Still couldn't buy my house now even with a 75% deposit. Dreamworld occupant. I hope she loses the bloody lot. Shall we award her a new certificate in the art of talking s**t? Wake up darling, the bogey mans coming to get you...... :angry:

She really had to struggle some, huh? What are all those FTB's earning average money who have absolutely no chance of buying a delapidated craphole in those areas of London moaning about? [/quote]


Hmm, I dunno, what do you mean by 'average money' I think someone on national average money can certainly buy a nice house in London, infact I know that's true becuase I did it :)! Read my [url="http://www.kazap.co.uk/page.php?2"]FTB story[/url] if you are interested. Someone on London average money can certainly afford a house!

I think the point is that there are certain essential key workers that dont make average money, not teachers btw, my gf gets paid more than I did at her age, and its around the national average! But obviously there are many workers way under the average that are going to struggle. Im not sure a big crash will be great for the economy, Id rather just see prices sit still for the next 10 years, which is what I personally think will happen. Either way Im gonna continue to save and work as hard as I can so I can provide for my family, what else can we do..?!

Oh dear poor Kirsty AllSlop. She's annoyed. Annoyed at a website that mirrors the views of millions of Brits.
Wake up and smell the coffee sweetheart.
You fuelled this crap. Now it's time to face up to the reality of what you've created.

I'm annoyed at you too BITCH. :angry:

Funny how she winges about the rules of the stock market and the regulations are in place. Since when were rules and regulations applied to this money printing industry?

After watching the video I came to the following conclusions

1. Her concern that anyone who sells to rent with the aim of prices coming down, maybe priced out of the market. Yes this is a possibility and a risk. One that she does not think that anyone should take. Her anger towards anyone who encourages this is understandable given her views. It seemed that she really did feel that such advice was irresponsible.

2. I was rather touched by her belief in the power of the media and this web site in particular. The talk of insider trading etc. Seemed to point to her belief that HPC could influence a crash. Which is unrealistic.

3. I did wonder if her rage was due to the fact she reads this site and has seen the slating she receives. Particularly the negative emphasis given to her appearance.
Which to me has always seemed over the top and an issue of inconsequence.

4. I shall continue to ignore her property programme (as I have for a long time).

Actually, I think she's quite aware of what she's doing, and she will be rightly vilified for her irresponsible property ramping by those badly affected by her advice. Edited by tara747
