Report Boe Stepping In Has Robbed Us Of Victory in House prices and the economy Posted September 18, 2007 I find it hillarious that people on this site say things like"Those greedy BTL'ers" "Those unscrupulous banks" "Those selfish property developers" But then, people like the OP and those in agreement, are willing to allow the economy of the whole country topple, just so they can afford to by a property for themslves. The hypocrisy beggers belief. Doesn't it just ? Many of them really are wannabe BTLers annoyed that they missed the boat and bitter that it makes no financial sense to buy now . . .
