The personal finance section and the business/economics section of the telegraph have long been divorced from each other, the former with Ian Cowie and his glamour puss researchers with media degrees from the university of Bournemouth, and the latter with some very polished and hard nosed Oxbridge (etc) economists

Always been a strange contrast

Ms McQuade a HR Advisor from Glasgow

hmmmm her Linkedin profile says she is a HR Assistant with Glasgow City Council only been there two years, which means instead of getting £25 -30K, she will be on £18 - 24K (doubtful she will really be a HR Advisor after two years)

Starting to smell BS

Heaven forbid we bring the 'economic recovery' (multi-decade record trade deficit, falling real wages, vast underemployment, still near record government deficit) to a halt. That really would be awful.

If they're so bothered about it just ***** the bubble and lie some more about inflation and GDP. Public seem to have bought it so far. Dont see how pricking a housing bubble will change that.

Warner is a spanner, I remember being taken to task by him in the comments section for saying that baleing the banks was a mistake. He effectively stated I was driven by a sense of idealism rather than pragmatism and that Brown was right. Yet, here he is barely six months later stating that property write downs are a great idea, despite also saying Help to Buy is 'crucial'. For some reason these losses are palatable to the taxpayer but not a private business.

Warner's nearly as schizophrenic as AEP. Perhaps its an editorial line they're running up against?

IMhO Liam Halligan's the only one worth reading. Even if you think he's wrong at least he's argued consistently from the same position. For my money he's called it as well as anyone bar Steve Keen and Taleb.

Yes, agree about Halligan. Warner is basically an above the line troll. Cowie mk 2.
