Radio Four Money Box Live Reply

Recommended Posts

I can confirm that your e-mail to Money Box has been received and your

points noted.

Money Box Live is produced in accordance with BBC guidelines for

fairness and balance and chaired 'live' every week by some of the most

highly experienced personal finance presenters within the BBC.

Regular listeners to the programme, now in its fifteenth year, know that

it's remit is to allow listeners seeking practical help and clarity

about elements of personal finance to put their questions to experts.

It is inevitable that many experts come from within the personal finance

industry as they are the most qualified and experienced to address the

often complex issues and questions that arise. Experts are always

carefully selected and also come regularly from consumer organisations.

I believe that anyone listening to this week's programme on house buying

and selling can clearly hear it to be full of practical advice on a

subject that is always going to be of interest and importance. It is

available to hear again in 'audio on demand' format at

www.bbc.co.uk/moneybox

If you wish to raise further issues concerning this or any other BBC

programme details of our complaints procedure can be found at

My orriginal less eloquent E-mail was

I work so I won't be able to anser your phone.

I am very concerend about the program yesterday.

They experts were all selected from a group whose own financial

interests are based on the current housing market. Currently the Economy

is entering a recession caused by excesive personal debt. You experts

advised people that the market cannot change and that property is a good

investment... This advice is fraudulent. I supplied information prior to

the show that confirmed this and the advice you gave is actually

illegal. The Economy can only survive with living expenditure kept to a

proportion of salary that current house prices have outstripped by 50%

the economy is failing with only a few people owning property at such

high a cost. THERE IS NO WAY THE ECONOMY CAN SUSTAIN ITSELF IF ALL HOMES

HAD BEEN BOUGHT AT TODAYS COSTS. IT IS FAILING NOW this is confirmed

economic fact. Contact me today via e-mail. I need to have dialogue with

whoever is in charge of the way these programs are handled

My reply was

You treated house prices as a macro economy.

I can't believe that you are not aware that personal debt in this country is not sustainable.

That we are not heading into a possible recession because of this.

That you are not aware that most experts show real house prices have dropped over the last year.

Not the average cost of a selling house.. More factors in the market have changed then that.

The Like for Like selling price is showing a sustained drop for over a year.

Is this an intersting perspective?

Please keep this dialogue open.

Wouldn't be surprised if this sort of activity went beyond a few tins of lager on the box.

Maybe a suggestion the BBC should widen probes from entertainment television to established money advice programs.

Be interesting to see the procedures by which these guest experts are found.

EDIT: Odd thing was I only heard this on the World Service!

This looks almost exactly the same as the reply I recieved, probably just a standard automated reply, I doubt if they even read my email.

Could not be ar*ed to reply to it, complete waste of time !!
