So retirees pour their capital into housing market, met by banks diverting mortgage funding to BTL, meaning young people can't afford houses

Faisal is a very good journalist. When he comes on everyone in the room at home is told to button it!

Nearly every politician has a second home thanks to the way expenses work. BTL / second home taxes will only be put in place after a very violent coup.

2 of the cheaper end 2 bed flats (of 4 I am watching) just gone SSTC, one had reduced 5% on asking, however a look at Nethouseprices shows that the flipper has made 10% at least in 5 months if they paid near the reduced asking price after doing it up with a fairly basic bathroom and a not bad kitchen

I reckon another BTLers in both cases above - walk down streets here and every few houses it's a let ot to let board

Good on him!

Nice to see a journalist exposing his own profession for its awful multi-decade + conflict of interest that has contributed to this economic disaster.

Brave of him...........................

........................he still owes me a tin of beans though. :P

That's completely unreadable. Twitter sucks ass.

Try this:

When compared to the likes of New Labour 'loving' Flanders and others at the BBC he wipes the flaw with them. Always insightful, there is no flannel with him.

Good on him for saying this. Makes the otherwise wall of silence from many (vested) in the msm out, for what many here have pointed out, as being purposely ignorant to the masses of negative and utterly corrosive effects of the shameful UK 'sell out' to pwwwoperty and banks.

Would love to see him call it all on a documentary series - the whole shooting match; impact on uk family life, work, the banks, housing benefit, property porn tv, generational divide. No one in the media has yet dare look and address the elephant in the room, could this be the man?

He's still on Channel 4 right?

When I was a kid, Channel 4 was the "brave" channel, that made documentaries that no other channel would dare contemplate.

In the last couple of decades they have gone all bland, boring and big brother bull***t.

I doubt they've the guts to expose the level of "BTL troughing Journos" manipulating their coverage of this crisis.

A documentary on BTL amoungst journalists and MPs (and their families) would be an eye-opener and explain a lot. I've little doubt this would extend to the suddenly enriched Quangocracy and UberCouncils.

No chance of it ever getting made or the brave documentary maker being able to do it. Hill walking to be avoided. :ph34r:

have to agree.only masinstream economic journo worth wathcing.his various attempts at explaining the complexities of CDS,MBS etc etc to the public ought to shame flanders et al.

If she gave a shit.

The best line from Faisal:

Meanwhile politicos pretend they care by having "first time buyer summits" in reality do nothing to offend multiple property-owning votebank.
