That blog has been going for a couple of years and not received a single comment.

Says it all really.
Food, shelter; both are basic necessities of life.
If you call out for cheaper food, you are a saint.
If you call out for cheaper shelter, you are ostracised, ridiculed, even your partners and family feel slightly ashamed of you.

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

This pro-crash lobby (((she is talking about us :) ))) 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. The motives of this online fraternity that longs for the human misery produced by a market collapse are a mystery. Perhaps they hope that if they spread sufficient gloom, their rantings will become a self-fulfilling prophecy?

http://property.time...icle3325824.ece


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:

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.

.

High property prices increase: living costs; production costs; and government costs - hence all prices , and taxes!


This also reduces Britain's international competitiveness, impoverishing all of us, including property owners




And NIMBYism is evil.

Remember that buying a house is a highly leveraged investment and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit. Buying a house may not be suitable for everyone, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.

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