Only just caught this video of FP... apologies if already posted.

I really cannot comprehend the rudeness and aggression from the presenter here, You might expect a similar response if he called the presenters mum a fat ork but all he does is maintain that prices 'could' still fall 10% this year.

If you don't like what he's got to say, don't invite him on your show, you son of a fat ork.

It's just plain weird. loaded up with BTL perhaps?

TFH on ! - notice the loss of sound at 1:30 when FP states the level of falls in Northern Ireland. Convenient.

Sky presenter looks like Joel Hills. Full of himself and probably fearful in advance of JD's reputation. Trying to get in first.

Vested Interest Alert for that presenter!

But I have noticed recently that Sky presenters are getting a bit more aggressive when interviewing people. Maybe they are just listening to feedback that presenters ask a question, listen to the fibbing response and let it rest - like my rant on another thread about Ms Caroline Flunt on QT last night :angry:

Trouble is, when they try this approach with someone talking sense it just comes across as rude and ignorant. Which in this case it was....

Pax-man does it.

When too much 'savoir faire' is expounded - he will throw in a question that throws the intervieWEE totally off their line of thinking.

He's piss-taking!

That sky interviewer was a clown, I can't believe he could expect to be taken seriously with his opening line, which was to the effect of:

You predicted that house prices would fall by 10% in 2011, here we have news of a 0.1% rise in March. Why were you wrong?

I mean, that's sub-politician level subterfuge. No doubt a brilliant meedja career awaits.

What a shame they didn't interview Krusty in the same manner.

"You said house prices would double every 7 years, yet they only went up 0.1% in March" etc etc.

Just watched the Clip.

At 1:28 in, when JD talks about how far house prices have fallen in Northern Ireland, it appears that Sky NEWS have purposefully dubbed out/ edited his response!?

[ Little bit Nazi party isnt it? ]

They must not like free speech at Sky News.

The media regulator Ofcom received over 1,400 complaints regarding the Sky News interview process during the election.

I've always got time for FP - he's a good bloke.

I do think however that 10% YoY nominal fall isn't going to happen. More like it'll be down 3-5% for the next 3 years and general inflation will take care of the rest. We've had the spectacular blow-off in 2008. Now it's just a slow and painful grind to the bottom over many long and protracted years.

Fair does to JD/FP/Killer bunny (why the mystery btw?) - he's out there spreading the word and planting seeds of doubt (especially when he doesn't get ranty), we need more like him.

And the interviewer strikes me as an Alan Partridge-esque top level d1ck.

Didn't know JD is Killer bunny - he started the "if anyone's interested" thread, which is often the best thing on this forum.

In his honour:

I don't think there's any vested interest with this presenter, he just isn't competent and covers it up by pretending to be all no nonsense businessy, which to the incompetent means being unaccountably angry. He's like it in all interviews, and he always seems relieved when they're over. Out of his depth, he should stick to reading stuff out.

TBH, I like the way how Sky presenters are more and more playing devil's advocate, a lot of the time they ask the very thing i'm shouting at the screen. Much better than the BBC where the presenter just takes everything the interviewer says, even if it's complete BS.

30% to 40% down, in nominal terms, over the next few years is what I'm expecting.

+1. Including 10% this year. We're in the middle of the 'spring bounce' - and all I'm seeing is falls.

I gave up last year expecting large nominal falls so loaded up on PMs (mainly S1lver). At the price I bought, my investment has doubled and thus I've already seen a meaty reduction in house prices when measured in S1lver ounces.

I haven't cashed in so the profit hasn't really been realised yet but I can cash in any time with no problems.

If you can't beat them, join them ;)

@Killer Bunny

You did well. the attack dog from SKumY made himself look a complete choob. You were the calmest I've seen you. The talking suit's only redeeming feature was to thank you for your appearance. ;)

Yes indeed. Respeked.....

Loved the 'clarification' at the end.

You should move to London, then. Some sales are 20% up on 2008 prices around my way - it's gone mental.

It's a bubble upon a bubble that didn't quite burst, if that makes any sense... <_<

Good stuff, Jonathan!! Loved it. The Sky presenter was a twunt... and WHAT ON EARTH... they COMPLETELY dubbed out some of the best points, i.e. how much Ireland has crashed by. Blatant vested interest by Sky there!

Good stuff JD. At least you are being asked on these shows.

I thought the drop outs in the recording were a bit sinister, felt like I missed something important.

I still find it amazing that people crow about ever increasing house prices, regardless of their impact on people's limited resources and the economy, particularly in a global environment.
