WHAT A STRAPLINE!

I saw the title of your thread and before opening the first word that popped into my head was -- demented.

The content is hardly much less amazing.

Interest rates will fall four times next year as the Bank of England tries to lure consumers back into the high street, a leading economist forecast yesterday. Speaking in Bristol, HSBC chief economist Dennis Turner said he expects four 0.25 per cent cuts in 2006 - one each quarter - to take rates back to 3.5 per cent

Winner: 10-Year Full Listing Award ANYONE investing £10 in McCarthy & Stone shares back in 1995 would today be sitting on a holding worth nearly £9,000.

........

During the 10 years between July 1,1995 to June 30, 2005 McCarthy & Stone's share price rose by 499p, giving a growth figure of 891.07 per cent.

Perhaps they're hoping that a return to 3.5% will see a return of booming house prices etc. etc.

More like a return to soup kitchens and a Sterling crisis.

Weimar Gordon is - he makes sure he does his bit for preventing deflation by his tax hikes (although admittedly he did let himself down a bit this year with a paltry 7% increase in council tax) and inflation busting public sector pay rises.
