Wall To Wall Property Porn On Tv Now

Recommended Posts

I am doing some work on my laptop and have the TV on in the background.

A property porn prog just came on so I changed channel to find another property porn programme... I kept switching channels and they are all property porn. It is like feeding a drug addiction.

Thankfully a repeat of LLL is about to be replaced by Trevor Howard giving Jerry a good seeing to in The Gift Horse.

I think property porn needs to be given a harder edge for the recession. How about Lindi St Clair presenting Demolition, Demolition, Demolition?

Opiate for the masses.

Unemployed? Depressed? Angry?

Not very good propaganda though is it?

Unemployed? Depressed? Angry?

Here's some clueless numbnuts flipping a property and boasting about making a four, five figure profit

Feel good now do you, sitting at home with no job?

You're not go getting like these young professionals are you, you loser!

LOSER!

I'm amazed there aren't angry mobs stringing up eas as we speak.

It's a concerted attempt to get people with money to invest in an over geared asset class.

This allows values to further deflate (later) with less risk of systemic collapse.

That happened on Homes under the Hammer this morning. Greedy developers demolished a house due to a "rats nest" and evidence of some subsidence. Put in planning for four houses (originally had outline permission for two).

I'd have had thought "developer dad" could have afforded more than two suits (same one worn at successive shoots) and something better than Rover 75 (then again when it was filmed it was probably new).

I quite like having property porn on in the background. The propaganda and lies are entertaining and funny.

Today we had a 25 y/o Asian developer who intended to retire at 30 and bought houses at auction with "no money" and a £10 deposit. You just can't loose!

These shows have been discussed a lot on here. Especially the fact that Homes Under the Hammer etc… flash up the year it was filmed in for about 2 seconds. If that.

I was watching Countryfile or something yesterday. They had an old show from 2001 on about wind farms etc..

They felt it necessary to have 2001 in the top corner for the entire snippet. I imagine, just in case people thought this windfarm story was recent.

Surely a programme with people investing in things to make money should have the date clearly shown throughout ? I know these shows are mainly entertainment but people do watch them and get ideas.

If it was a programme with people buying and selling shares to make money - would a quick flash of the date suffice ? I doubt it.

They should have a warning like on repeats of shows with phone voting, "This is a recording - Do not buy property now. Your dream will not come true and you may go bankrupt."

Although not being officially classed as an investment they don't have to give any warnings - do they ?

Pretty shoddy really. A show about people investing in property - does not have to any warnings because it is not really investment.

"They" (the VI's) are trying very, very hard to reflate this bubble.

It is virtually impossible to pull off such a trick

I don't think they are trying to reflate.

I think they are trying to replace those about to default with people who have a good equity cushion.
