What's going on here???

Earlier on, in the business section, there's a report about lending going up, and the 28% increase in reported falls is mentioned as a footnote.

Now the headline has changed to...

"House prices and sales still falling surveys show"

And the article is re-written and leads with the HPC news and mentions the lending increase as a footnote????

Prroves 3 things..

1. BBC is biased reporting only HPI spin

2. Somebody is calling them up on it and has the power to reverse their message.

3. TPTB only want HPC propaganda from now on

Interest rates to rise..

Crash speed warp 9

Make it so

Hell of a lot of assumptions there - that said, I was slightly annoyed to spot a headline "Inflation holds steady at 4.5%". Wouldn't "Prices still rise 4.5%" or "Inflation remains high at 4.5%" be a more accurate description?

Erm... they've updated the article to now include the bearish DCLG release.

Ah - yes - just noticed that.....

Feeling a bit like a bear who rushed the honey pot a bit.....

Sorry...

The Socialists at the BBC had a meeting to discuss strategy. They reminded themselves that house prices always goes up is now not appropriate as the 'nasty Party' is in power and that they must really focus on 'bad' economic news now.

For true!!

You may jest but this is likely to be quite close to the truth.

A quote from Peter Sissons' autobiography :

"By far the most popular and widely read newspapers at the BBC are The Guardian and The Independent. Producers refer to them routinely for the line to take on running stories, and for inspiration on which items to cover. In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told ‘it’s all in there’."

It is reminscent of Labour in the last election, their polling of Cameron identified people thought of him as a 'race car' and 'un-PC' which they thoroughly disapproved of because of nasty climate change emissions, and how could anyone not be PC? Obviously they are right about everything and everyone thinks the same way. It resulted in the ad portraying Cameron as Gene Hunt sat on a Quattro. The voters loved it, and it probably cost them a dozen seats.
