Caught a snippet of this show this morning and was shocked at how they treated being dangerously in debt. The presenter even mentioned that she's alright 'cause I've got property to which one of the others pointed out that she didn't because she didn't own it but was borrowing the money from the bank. This was countered with the classic property always doubles every ten years. The ignorance on display was shocking as well as their careless attitude. :angry:

Why so angry? Their stupidity will be HPCers salvation. May they burn in ponzi hell B)

ITV should commission a counterbalance show to 'Loose Women' called 'Caddish Men'.

A panel of male HPCers could exchange tales of who spends the least running a motor car and who's had a, good solid and still serviceable, pair of trousers, the greatest number of years.

A ratings winner, for sure.

The one thing that you can be assured of is that there will never be any balance. I was only shocked because they just put forward this view as a positive. No wonder there are so much gristle for the grinder of the HPC.

You're taking this too seriously. I saw this show the Monday after the public sector cuts march. The panel generally gave a good assessment of public spending, government debt, interest etc. It was probably the most militant thing I've seen on daytime telly for a long time.

Loose women is just a daytime entertainment show. Some of the panel are smart, others not so but that is the point. They bat topics back and forth and give the sort of responses that probably reflect the general opinion in the street. It is not Newsnight and will never be ( unless Newsnight starts to run segments on their presenter's love lives and wobbly bits - never know, it might happen :) )

Loose Women was created during the height of the boom and was designed to encouraged middle aged woman to behave like ladettes, bitching and lusting with equally inebriated measure, because they were worth it.

This show epitomised an era: Lasciviousness, envy and irresponsiblility. Loose monetary policy, Loose credit, Loose Women.

Sadly they forgot a key lesson of history, namely that loose lips sink ships, and several trillion pounds later, boy oh boy, did this sucker go down. With the UK in such dire straights presumably we can look forward to this show's successor: Loose Bowels.

Losers.

But it has doubled ever ten years, (especially if you manage to buy them near the bottom of the price cycle), mainly because our fiat money devalues in half.

If you get a 10 year period where house prices dont double, they just play catch up the next decade after and quadruple in value.

Written with such authority. Does your history book go back further than 1970?

And going forward? Int rates, public spending, unemployment, lending. All pointing to doubling by 2021? Behave!

forgive my ignorance, but I wouldve thought a programme called 'Loose Women' would be about slags and sluts.

Might be more interesting.

I think it's a play on words, they're "loose canons"? Speaking their minds etc.

Or maybe I'm reading waaaay too much into it.

'Tight Men'?

Tight Gits. Coming soon to a low budget satellite channel near you.
