Bank's 'plight Of First-time Buyers' Pr Campaign

Recommended Posts

Bank of scotland (BoS)

The plight of first-time buyers

To push forward the debate on the stamp duty threshold, BoS wrote to 800 MPs and opinion formers with research, and suggested solutions with a PR campaign about its mortgages. The result was an Early Day Motion in the Scottish Parliament in January that referred to BoS. The Lib Dems proposed raising the threshold for stamp duty from £60,000 to £150,000. :ph34r:

What a complete red herring, the banks were also behind a similar movement in the UK before the last budget, this will do nothing to help first time buyers as prices will just go up to compensate for the saving. This is about propping up the market and getting more people to get big mortgages.

Typical short sighted Liberal thinking.

i can see the scenario now...

...deep in the underground bowels of motherwell sits the bank of scotland emergency commitee.

'gentlemen we have a problem".

the chairman pointing to a large UK map showing red areas where ftbs not taking on loans.

"some some reason the young are not willing to lend 8x salary to pay for a 3x salary house"?

any ideas ?

duh - boss.

can we try out BTL robots again ?

-no their power source is in question.

how about adding a voice recording onto the cash machines asking passing walkers to take out a large housing loan for no purpose or everytime a young customer takes out binge drinking money.?

perhaps we could produce a selection of carrier bags depicting exciting young couple on a white/brown sofa in a barrat house pointing at a glossy catalogue of fresh design ideas.? - no weve done that.

maybe we can spew out crooked figures that justify nothing.

done that as well.

well im out of puff on this one.
