I often listen to Nolan on Five Live at weekends. Certainly no intellectual heavyweight. Has two cards to play - simplistic devil's advocate or plain-man-in-the-pub-who-needs-simple-explanations.

He is attractive in neither guise. Should be easy meat.

I've heard him on 5 live. Often Mr 'Daily Express' Angry too, as well as a sucker for a sob story, although they are sometimes genuine.

We need people to phone in here ! Even if it requires us to use false pretences ! Nolan will not want HPCers on if he is a BTLer !
The Sibley Thread Bomb - A How-To Guide

Contsruct: Put together between three and seven well-spaced lines of OTT blind optimism. Steer well clear of economics and stick to spurious anecdotals and the odd wild prediction. Finish off with "I told you so". Maximum impact, minimum detail. Nice!
Target: Find a thread with plenty of action going on. A "green shoots" thread is preferable, but any thread started by a fellow Bull usually works. If Harry Monk is there, even better!
Deploy: When it's least expected, throw the thread bomb into the target area and quickly move to a safe distance. Watch the thread bomb go off and create chaos among the Bears. Wait a while, then throw another one in for good measure. Job done.

Exactly!

Let's have some fun. Phone up early and register a question, something fun like "if the long term trend is average house prices equal 3 to 4 times the average salary in an area, what will prices fall back to?".

There are rumours that the financial planner is our very own "Financial Planner" from this site. Can anyone confirm this ?
