  1. Interview with whistleblower Paul Moore on the R4 business slot at 6:15. Absolutely apopleptic, BBC's Simon Jack a little panicked by the outburst. Moore clearly been through a very trying time.
  2. A point of clarification - according to the FT article, IO loans in fact account for 'only' 40 per cent of the UK's mortgage book, although whether that's by number or value is unclear. However, in 2007, apparently one-third of new mortgages, not 75 per cent, was sold on an IO basis, and of that one third, 75 per cent was sold without a reported payment plan.

Town still has a rural feel about it despite its proximity to Reading although Prescott may have other ideas for the Greenbelt that sur
  5. First post. I have worked in Maidenhead for a number of years and lived in and around the town in that time. House prices in the town have always amazed me although by my reckoning they have plateaued completely over the last couple of years. I believe that a lot of mediocre housing has appreciated on the back of rises to better quality properties - inevitable perhaps but unjustified nonetheless. The current market will expose the weaker property for what it is worth, and I expect a more general correction to take place in the town and roundabouts but would be surprised if this was more th
