How do you think I found it? ;) ;) ;)

If the good times lasted forever, then they wouldn't be called "the good times", they would just be called "the times".

FP, if we don't hear from you for 42 days we'll 'know' where you are!

Have you ever considered or been considered for the Question Time panel?

Wow! I've never seen the seamless opt-in to Newsnight Scotland before.... And now I know where the Gordon Brewer went to.....

The action begins.....



After 90 seconds, I'm almost deafened by the growling bearish tone.....

Crap lighting, crap framing, FP. Bloody BBC (Essex).

You're talking sense though......

Didn't even have to look at the screen, just heard the voice and I knew he was on. ;)

Excellent FP, I didn't realise you wer on tonight. The other two on the the panel were flaccid beyond beleif. They back their arguments up with nothing, absolutely nothing.

Thanks FP for articulately and forcefully putting your factual evidence for a crash accross to the people of Scotland, perhaps they will f*cking wake up now.

Looks a little quiet in the office ;)

Nationalising housing stock seems a bit dramatic, FP........

Well done, FP and thanks for the mention of Embra - anything to help burst Scotia's biggest bubble helps. I think we can safely say you came across best of the 3: The EA did his best to ramp as expected and the Prof didn't come across well at all.

Edit: change pr1ck to burst, I didn't think pr1ck was a rude word?

Yours,

Not quite as radge as the name suggests.

Cut out the middle man: Rent the property, not the money.

100% mortgage from the bank of Ireland just so long as your parents put their pension fund up as collateral!

Good work.

Gordon Brewer is a bit of a realist which is good.

I know I am biased - but I am certain if I was watching that from a 'novice' point of view I would only think two people out of the 4 had a real clue what was going on.

FP and Brewer. You clearly knew what you were talking about and Brewer was the neutral who seemed to have a bit of common sense and understanding.

The other 2 seemed to be simply hoping 'Scotland was different' and not much else. Nice. ;)

Brilliant stuff FP! You annihilated the two other guests.

I wonder if the estate agent really believes the nonsense he was spouting about how parents should be guarantors to the tune of 20%?! Here's a simple idea for him. How about house prices fall to a level where people can actually afford to buy them without signing your life away to pay off a UK slave box?

That is the first time I have heard anyone on TV dispelling the myth that Scotland will be immune to any falls in house prices. About time too.

Thanks for taking the time to go on these programmes FP. It's much appreciated.
