A great show there for the HPC'er.

You did us proud FP.
You were so informative, the arguments against the HPC were practically non existant.

And I can't believe there was an acceptacne of the 10 -20 % price drops already. :o

Good work FP.
They really dont want to hear do they?

Maybe they'll go to the next auction, but not to buy.
Just to confirm their fears.

true, they certainly didn't want to hear.

One of my fave bits was when FC told them that the house prices had not gone up in 20 years in Japan.
Because as all VI's know "property only ever goes up". :rolleyes:

It will be going up in smoke this time, & that will be one hell of a learning curve for some.

You wonder if their inner being will survive the shock!

Good stuff FP. Was afraid you were going to have a heart attack when buying BTLs now was mentioned.
The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed. Judge yourself by the intention of your actions and by the strength you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.

The people closest to you have been trying to tell you that you have made a difference. That you did change things for the better. The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing that we can ever truly control - whether we are good or evil.


The political triumph of the American Right has been to advance relentlessly the economic interests of the country's richest people, while emphasising a swath of moral, social and foreign policy issues that motivate and certainly distract middle-class and poor voters.

Thanks.

That guy was funny with his positive outlook for UK property when he backed it up with a `famous' Donald Trump quote: "the best opportunity to buy in 30 years". I'm glad FP seized upon that... as well as convincingly countering all the other guests explanations of blaming media, medium to long term investment making it great time to buy for "investment", 7 to 10 year cycle theories.
