Just listened to it. Very good all round.

The "Boys from the Blackstuff" comment is a great historical reference. Didn't that series immortalize the line "Gis a job?"

Nice to hear sensible commentary on what's going on. BBC and SKY are still staggeringly complacent on this whole issue.

Thanks FP

This is first show Ive heard about property being totally realistic. It should be broadcast (without pictures) instead of chavtime TV on Saturday evening.

Towards the end, the two investors mentioned over supply in rentals. Mr Frisbee mentioned that Savills in Docklands were not taking on any more rental property. Ive just done a search of the whole Docklands / Canary Wharf area on their site and i cant find anything under 200pwk. In fact theres nothing under 250 pwk, and thats a studio flat.
So i would presume that not much is shifting in rentals either. Cos if thats affordable, they can stick it up their ****. :angry:

Burn't to disk not for prosperity though, have to go to the airport this evening so will break it down mentally on the way there, and possibly on the way back.

Worthy of a pin, I've listened to it twice so far. I've also sent it to a BTL'r to ponder over. Maybe I should wander round the city centre with it playing out over loudspeakers.

Clear, concise, accurate. Well done all involved.

I posted the link on MSE yesterday.

So far I have not been shot, impaled, or even banned.

... though I did ask one of their regular posters to not respond.

it is difficult enough to convince some people that the economy is in fact not providing the security they desire, but is actually destroying their future completely. To explain to them that this is deliberate, that the economy is designed to self-destruct, that is another prospect altogether

Well done. Thanks, Laura.

Does anyone here post on Motley Fool? If so, you couldn't post a link to this could you?

Yes I do and No I won't as it's kinda frowned on. TBH Laura's got you potentially better exposure for your business on MSE, suggest you get in touch with David Kuo at The Fool yourself and the guys at Moneyweek...oh 'ang on MSW can help you there. ;) Use FP to get a shoe in at R4, not sure how your model fits, but if you get enough respected talking heads it could be a fascinating pitch.
