Slightly O/T I remember a tonight programme that had 3 panel members who gave there predictions of where house prices would be in 18 months time, I think Phil Spencer was one of them and the presenter was the most bearish. Does anyone remember this? Must be close to 18 months ago.

If you get a chance to make someone look stupid over the whole 'price falls are bad for FTBs' crap they spew out on a regular basis, please use it.

Good luck FP, not that you need it these days, the facts speak for themselves.

If you can get official confirmation from the halifax that the unadjusted figures are indeed what rickybruce gleaned from them (£181,765 as the unadjusted figure for June), it might be worth mentioning that these figures actually show a [b]larger[/b] drop from May to June than April to May, not a smaller one, but that these figures have been massaged to make it look as though they are better.

I will be glued if only to see poor old Ms Bien squirm and cling on the sound fundamentals of 2 years ago. :lol:

I was just wondering, do you get paid travelling expenses or anything when you appear on these programmes ? All the travelling you're doing for these at the moment must be costing a bit.

Just watched it, you said 10% fall by end of year, are you going to revise that figure? Seems rather on the low side now!!

Great Link to the video. Melanie called the drop at 4% [b]this year[/b] as a "much needed correction..." Ho-hum.

I would imagine that any expenses would be irrelevant compared to the free, National Prime TV introducion of Johnathan Davis of.

[size=5]Armstrong Davis - Chartered Financial Planners [/size]

It appears that weekly FP is on the box and for someone being proved correct in his many predictions etc. If you wanted to deal with a firm of Chartered Financial Planners then surely you would be more inclined to work with someone who comes across very informed and factually correct in what he/they say.

And Housepricecrash.co.uk often gets a good mention. Hurrah

Good luck - when you think of the number of people nationally who have had a chance to hear the truth thanks to FP's efforts, one has to conclude he is becoming one of the main commentators on this issue - very rapidly the interviews seem to be growing. That's because he, along with Vince Cable, talks sense, pretty much lone voices against a wall of VI spin-meisters and hand-wringing economists.

Well done FP

Agreed. This is really starting to get my goat...BBC news did it today and didn't mention high prices ONCE. Just had an EA bleating about getting banks lending (irresponsibly) again (ie: re-inflate the bubble, please). But then it's the BBC, so what do you expect. :angry:

Savills - 25% in 2 years

Capital Economics - 35%

FP - 35 to 40%

2008 crash (to date) bigger than peak year of 1990s crash.

Government house-building target a dream

First 10-12 mins of the programme exlusively for this story.

The secret's out!
