B B C Newsreader Thinks Increasing Property Prices Are A Good Thing

Recommended Posts

"Some people would point out that increasing property prices are a good story because they're a sign of increased prosperity and wealth. Of course that's no comfort to anyone who's at the bottom of the ladder, but that's what drives it".

there is no problem with rising house prices. The problem is that wages need to rise at the same level. Thats the problem. The average wage should now be around £60K

In her world, I pray for the day the average house rises to £2M and everybody decides to stop paying the licence fee to the Beeb in order to pay their mortgage. The Beeb then have to sack all their newsreaders and replace them with free readers from a charity shop.......... :lol:

The Topic tilte is a gross misreprentation. If the quote is accurate, we don't know what she thinks at all; she's merely reporting what "some people" think. We knew that already.

Edit: Spelling.

Not really, use of the words "point out" infers that to make such a statement would be to draw attention to a fact.

Big fan of Laura Tobin from the weather...

So am I. She is quite delightful in all aspects ( we need a smiley with a tongue hanging out)

Like many people, they confuse a monetary value with wealth.

the house IS the wealth. it neither goes up or down. it just IS.

Sounds as though it would be a good thing if cars and food kept rising in price too. Even more wealth and prosperity! Inflation is wealth!

A lot of those officials and so on tasked with supporting the system are becoming completely deranged and delusional.

Today there was even the sight of some bloke called Digby Jones (at any rate he used to be something to do with the CBI so we know he would be telling the truth and nothing but) laughing crazily and saying that we can't do without the banks because they are so profitable :o and then wheeling out the old chestnut that if bankers don't get the bonuses they will all go off to Dubai. No mention that the banks were so bankrupt that they had to be bailed out by all those taxpayer £trillions and the bankers bankrupted themselves and we would likely all be better off if they did go off and "help" Dubai.

It was the BBC doing the interview and of course they just accepted everything he said.

Theyre a sign of increased prosperity and wealth?!

Theyre the same bloody houses!

Theres not more of them.

Theyre not improving themselves.

How an earth is adding 000s to the end of them improving wealth

Do these morons think Zimbabwe's wealth improved over the last few years because house prices went up there?

Do they even understand what wealth is?

Its like the broken window thingy. The BBC morons would literally destroy every bit of infrastructure in the UK so just the BBC building was left, and worth the entire UK monetary base. Therefore we're all rich. Hallejuyah.

Nobody can forget when the newsreaders went on strike barely 2 months ago, the Union said it caused chaos and disruption as news readers

Speaking outside Television Centre, NUJ president Jeremy Dear compared BBC Director-General Mark Thompson to Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf, the Iraqi information minister at the time of the 2003 invasion.

Wondered when old Fatby Jones would be wheeled out by the City. The City is on a huge charm offensive to fool errr persuade the people that is needed and good for Britain, rather than just greedy f*cks out for themselves. Indeed the City has been funding sports in deprived London boroughs for youngsters (bless) even though most of them wouldn't even qualify for cleaning jobs at the local CW bank HQ's and would doubtless be forced to pay for uniforms, and security passes, even if they did. Ch*nts the lot of them. The BBC doesn't question any of it, because its (a) either a propaganda outfit or (B) lazy.

And 10% pay rises per year just to combat the HPI we had seen in about 2003. Otherwise the newreader is talking perfect sense!

I wonder how Jane would feel if there was massively increased supply (imagine say, an extreme hypothetical example of nanotechnology allowing infinite new lands in space, homes cost a hundred pounds each, and she has twenty or so)?

Think how poor she would be!

somehow don't think that that is likely though.

It is, according to the Halifax...

I hope she is cashing in by putting her propertie(s) on the market then. Otherwise that 'wealth' will be decreasing by 50%.

Then again, much like most property owners, shes probably in denial about the whole thing. :lol::lol:
