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.
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.
