you on FP? I got a call from the production team last week and for the first time I was sorely tempted to appear. Decided against it finally.

I think you'll regret that...

Watch and see.

Save the rage for a couple of years down the track when you bump into Adam Applegarth in Sainsbury's. So you can twist off his head and make an impromptu Kinder Surprise joke.

I'm betting it's the end for the Wilsons AND Foxtons.

That'll empty a few pent up bearsacks.

Come on FP, spill the beans. Is Sir Trevor's house being reposessed live on TV and him exposed as a BTL property baron who has just declared bankruptcy?

Oh yes !! :lol: :lol: :lol:

<edited for typos>

the guy that phoned me up a couple of times suggested he wanted to include the damage BTL had done v FTBs and how much they had lost/were losing, it's also a 'panel thingy' interspersed with interviews etc., similar to the one with MSW and the guy from Savills a year or so back, iirc they're going to re-visit some of their predictions, but not sure if MSWebb is on again, don't think she is. Wanted predictions of how much property would fall and why and how we'd got in this state. TBH in some respects I reckoned it's kinda past it sell by date, might rub salt into the wounds of highly leveraged BTL players but IMHO we're way past all this now. If invited on this time last year to say "prices will fall by 35% inside two years to revert back to affordable levels and that's before the inter bank lending heart attack has wreaked its havoc" it'd been worth it, but not now. Can't see the point in these programmes now...it's all airborne

PLEASE make sure you connect the present state of the economy with Brown's failure to keep house prices under control (see my sig for the quote).

Hank Paulson spoke yesterday and made it 100% clear that the mess we are in was due to HOUSE PRICES GETTING OUT OF CONTROL.

snip


He MAY not have meant what you think he means.

He MAY be saying the mess we are in is due to House prices getting out of control.... ie failing to control the FALLS.

He May be looking at the problem, like so many others, from the wrong end.

Right'o.

On a related note can anyone find out how many MPs have sold their BTL "investments" or
people farming units, since the begining of the crash?

Or the Chateau de Demise Wilsonique?

I think given the current climate, that 2008-2009 will be an excellent vintage of that particular little favourite.

I'd've thought by now the resourceful lot at HPC.co.uk would have looked at the TV listings to see what it was all about...

You'd let them have crystal.

I'd only give them a chipped mug, or a 'free' Esso glass that's gone all misty through too many trips through the diswasher.

Online listings say programme about beating backache at 8pm!
There's no government like no government.
--------------------------------------------------

It is part of the British collective mind-set to be right, people are endlessly arguing, sustaining their need to be right. In Britain it is very much more important to be right than to be nice. So people are rather nasty to each other while pretending to be right, and so their long-term karma is to be found to be terribly wrong. In then olden days, honor and a gentlemanís or gentlewomanís code of conduct was what held up the British edifice of being right but that code is now lacking. So the country will rot and falter.

The trick to being British is to agree to be wrong and make changes now. If you go down the path of righteous-indignation, you will fall as the country falls. The British feel they are very superior so their long-term karma is to become inferior. They will lose their economic status. If you donít feel you are superior, or right, and if status doesnít bother you, the nationís karma wonít bother you at all.
Stuart Wilde 2007
