Ed Balls, Ms. Flanders.

Recommended Posts

Saw Panorama last night and Ed Balls came across as rather mediocre - was expecting someone a bit sharper - Stephanie Flanders for chancellor!

Just been sent some details on a 'gated' development in Grangetown, Cardiff. All these 'gated' developments are a sure sign that society is in serious trouble. I told the EA to come back to me when the price has dropped substantially :lol:

Re: Ed Balls, have to agree. We thought he was a bit lightweight...hardly chancellor material, but there again Gordon's managed to last the course. God help us ! :rolleyes:

Guest Time 2 raise Interest Rates

Ed Balls " Doomsayers are wrong" London Evening Standard.

"We are in fact, experiencing the most benign and best managed

housing market slowdown of my lifetime. On every previous

occasion in recent decades, double -digit growth in house prices

has been followed by double- digit inflation and interest rates.

This time, thanks to the early and decisive action of our independent

Bank of England, the housing market has cooled without an

inflationary boom or a recession."

Imo, I think he's jumping the gun somewhat. He talks about decisive

action from an independent BOE helping to cool house prices. And

there was me thinking the BOE had nothing to do with house prices.

You learn something new every day.

He is only like 30 something.

Managed by whom exactly? Certainly not by Brown, he couldn't manage his own growth targets.

Come on give Edd a break....he has lovely skin....and I'm sure he knows a lot about numbers and things like that.

Mind you I couldn't help but notice a glint in his eye that seemed to impart the message......if they believe this sh*t they'll believe anything. :rolleyes:

The BoE cut interest rates during the biggest housing boom of all time and acted way too slow in raising them. The only reason rates are still so low is our ludicrous inflation measure which doesn't really reflect the cost of living. Savers get a kicking in this sort of environment.

Translation:

Things aren't as bad as last time... yet!
