I remember when I first arrived here Pricedout were looking for handouts to get FTBs on the ladder.
Does anyone know if they have changed that stance?
That was never the stance of PricedOut I don't know where the hell you got that from?!
PricedOut was always about getting the government off it's **** and doing something useful about the property price crisis. It saw there was a total lack of accountability from government for one of the worst crisis this country has faced and aimed at putting a face on the problem and forcing the governments hand instead of it being let off the hook.
If you bothered to actually read the website you'd see it was extremely critical of all the government initiatives that involved pouring more money into house prices
and advocated the opposite, sensible loans and proper regulation from the FSA.
Moving on to Liz whether or not you thought she did a good job at least she had the metaphorical balls to get off her **** and face up to the media (as did FP but who is I suspect is doing it for more than altruistic reasons). I salute her for it.
It's hardly surprising to find someone with no experience in PR or anything vaguely related struggles a bit on telly. If you thing you can do better feel free to volunteer your services instead of sniping for the sidelines.
