As one of many young people in NI who has been denied the chance to own their own home by insane prices, I hope you do indeed give 'em hell.

Anyone know if it's accessible via Virgin Media, if so which channel?

Otherwise I suppose iPlayer is always your friend.

That Stephen Nolan is a bit of a wind up merchant, be careful FP.

I've checked on the BBC iplayer and the 1 hour Nolan show from 3/11 is available. (Frank Skinner was on it)

So, tonight's show should be on there tomorrow.

Actually Nolan said on his radio show that he owned property.

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.

Debate on NI housing market between a financial adviser and an EA...



At least you are Scottish so will get away with it. Might be useful to point out that prices for larger houses in towns like Newtownards and Bangor nevermind the better bits of Belfast were getting close to the same levels as Alderley Edge in Cheshire or nice parts of southern England where the average income is probably three times higher.

I am from NI originally and have relatives still over and hear hilarious/bizarre/sad stories about the last three years. NI was truly dot.com in its silliness.

My favourite relates to 3 unattractive 70's 4 bedroom houses with large back gardens on a pleasant but hardly exceptional suburban road in a commuter town outside of Belfast which would have been worth no more than 300,000 up to 2004 (and that would have been thought expensive) selling to a property developer for 750,000 each in 2006 (seriously) so he could put up flats in the back gardens. This was developer knocking on the door stuff - the vendors' houses were not up for sale. The developer bought 3 of them. The fourth house next door held out with a dot.com valuation analysis that he should get 900,000 and raged against his neighbours who undersold for 'less than they were worth'. Developer just flat refused to pay anything extra for the fourth.

The three who sold downsized, and have 400,000 odd spare for their pension fund. They just couldn't believe it. "We thought we would be there for life, but they made an offer we couldn't refuse".

Needless to say, no flats have been built or seem likely to be built.

4th house couldnt be realistically marketed for more than 350,000 to 400,000 today and unlikely it would sell anyway given the declining market. :P

Of course the problem is the bubble has been going on for so long now that people have forgotten how cheap they used to be.

The phone in lines open early, according to my sources, so HPCers who want to ask pertinent questions should call early to avoid disappointment.
