Thanks FP, I'll watch with a cup of tea, I should think. Rooibos, probably.

I think its safe to have a guess at what they might be indicating then if they asked you to go on :lol:

This will be a good one!

Will Melanie Bien be there again? She was cannon fodder last time you two met on TV.

I know you can`t say, but I hope the figures are so bad that you hardly have to say a word !

(Not that I dislike hearing you on national TV, FP !).

I am gonna watch it with a coffee, no South African tea for me.

I think it will be a great result for us. Possibly -10% yoy, those last few summer boom months in the figures are slipping away.

FP, If Declan says that all this is bad for first time buyers (as is the media line) tell him I will be putting my foot through the TV and sending him the bill!

If the figures are anywhere near as bad as last months, I would expect Declan to be really annoyed and blaming the likes of you and all on HPC.co.uk for "talking down the market". The 'doom-monger' argument.

If accused of this, maybe a good reply would be "Well the media weren't afraid of 'talking up' the market for over a decade with property porn shows etc... Maybe if they hadn't done that we wouldn't be in this mess. And besides this market doesn't need talking down, it's doing it all by itself."

But if you do say that, get ready to duck when Declan throws his clipboard at you.

Good luck and good work!

quite agree with you, we should refuse to buy any products from all countries that support mugabe, maybe then they'll stop their hero worship of him and take notice at this outrage

I think it's time for a new tactic from you now, FP; anyone with half a brain must surely know now that the crash is very much locked and loaded (borrowing figures tell us that).

Rather than repeat the true but already stated facts about how screwed the market is, I reckon you should capitalise on the credibility they now realise you have. Tomorrow morning I dare you, in fact I double dare you to say;

"but these figures are no surprise to Fionaula; a simple trend analysis of her company's published data in March would have told her that today's figures were to be expected. However, if she had admitted this at the time the Nationwide would have had to write down their asset book further, which is why their predictions should always be taken with a pinch of salt in a falling market"

Go on, scaredy cat!

You probably will only have the chance for 1, perhaps 2, soundbites so rehearse a couple of 5 or 10 seconds phrases on points that you wish to get across and then, like all politicians and celebs, just say them no matter what question you are asked.

Personally, I would used "Doomed! We're all doomed! Well, not me because I sold to rent but all you greedy so and sos... Doomed! You're all doomed!" (Practice your best Private Fraiser accent.)

And then quickly add that you new book on surving in a credit crunch will shortly be out in W. H. Smith for £4.99

Best of luck.

Go on, you know you want to. You must be missing the smell of cordite and rush of battle since the last mission at the Estate Agents' conference.

Mike Catt always used to touch his left ear during the national anthem when he played for England to say hi to the rellies in erm, South Africa.

Maybe FP can do the same.

If you tell me what they are, I promise I won't say anything to anyone. ;)

Best of luck, please try hard to catch Declan out or make him look stupid.
