House Price Crash Forum

Recommended Posts

Was driving home this morning, and listening to FP on the today show radio 4. He was talking about this 125% mortgage deal. Spot on with what he said too. After that had finished, they started talking about something else, and I switched to Five Live. Lo and behold, two minutes later, there is FP again ! Same story, but he got a bit of a harder ride than he had done on Radio 4. Is there two of him these days?

No, just a recording device.

Did he mention the FTSE?

Ah- it WAS him :rolleyes: Talking total sense (unlike the BBC fool) If he could just sound slightly less dour he would come across much better IMO.

But WHO was the BBC P R A T T

The BBC it seems have dropped the ball where quality of their financial reporters is concerned

Yes he did. He said it would be over 14,000 before the end of August :ph34r: . No, nothing other than this Nationwide mortgage thingy.

Yes- it was an "Andy." He seemed incredulous that someone could think this fantastic idea to get markets moving again was not a good idea... :(

I listen to Verity every morning. He is worse than awful - I am certain he has vested interests in property prices the way he tries to talk the market up all the time & gives such short shrift to any bad news.

I must wean myself off Radio 5 Live - it's rubbish compared to 10 years ago.

Andy Verity STR'd in 2004 until the crash he was always being wound up about this. He wants prices to crash. I assume hes just trying to be impartial

Or trying to keep his job - how long do you think he would last on the BBC if he took the line "prices are currently still way too high"!
