"the Housing Market Is Still Weak"

Recommended Posts

About 13:20 today , Ed Balls uttered the words "The Housing Market is still weak".

Hmmm. I wonder what counts as strong (or even middling) with him? Double-digit HPI everywhere, not just Prime London, perhaps?

Just heard that on the radio... Ed Balls. [i'm at a relatives home replacing sheared-off original Chinese-cheap shower-door runners for slightly improved versions at £22 for 4 (discounted).]

Presenter was challenging him about the 'Cost of Living crisis' theme they're running with, suggesting it's losing its message against this supposedly improving economic wage to lower-inflation figures/situation, and latest survey of the public showing belief times are set to get better.

I feel blessed to live in a country with such a wise and public spirited political class.

I naturally associate the low intrest rates speech with the last prime minister, a blind scotsman whos name I cant remember but was particularly proud of his low intrest rates strategy to help hard working bigots famlies.

whats changed since he disappeared?....not a lot.

His "work" isn't finished yet. In 2009 he took his crashtastic policies from the UK to worldwide and locked in an even bigger worldwide financial crash for the future. He made the IMF the Central Bank for the World and so enabled other Central Banks to do stupid policies, safe in the knowledge that when their balance sheets are bust, they will be bailed out by more IMF Special Drawing Rights.

Gordon Brown has unveiled a $1.1 trillion (£747 billion) rescue fund for the global economy at the end of the G20 summit in London.

As part of the fourth pledge, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is to be given access to an extra $750 billion (£509 billion), which will be lent to countries whose economies run into trouble.

As well as a $500 billion (£341 billion) package from the G20 countries, the IMF will also embark on an ambitious plan to effectively begin printing money. Countries will be able to swap so-called “special drawing rights” of up to $250 billion (£170 billion) issued by the IMF for currencies such as dollars and euros. This will provide a vast injection of money into the world's economies.

I for one cant wait for Ed Balls to be in charge of the nations cheque book and overdraft.

I'll give the markets a full 5 minutes after the 2 Eds taking office to turn on them and this debt loving little Island, and watch interest rates shoot up.

A Labour victory is the most realistic black swan event.

Not surprised it is weak.....high prices and lack of supply in the places where the people work that would like to buy them are the causes of the weakness..... ;)

Maybe you're right, but I'm not convinced that Labour would do anything that scary. Milliband's heart is probably in the right place (bless him), but he's about to discover that coming top in maths isn't going to count for much in the playground. Meanwhile, Bully Balls is carrying a knuckle duster.

This comes to mind...

The only method that works for me 100% is to paste the text from the address bar between HERE with no spaces between square brackets and text

Amen.

I've been saying this for about 2 years.

Lets drain the pool and see who has shorts on.
