No mention of easy credit or tax advantages for BTL making it hard for first time buyers though...

Nice point from someone in the audience that the politicians would only realise that there's a problem when their nanny doesn't turn up, the schools have no teachers and the police can't operate in London because nobody on a normal wage can afford to live near their jobs.

No, I thought the truth is starting to come out. Hitchens said live on QT that governments have created property bubbles to create the illusion of wealth, and they are doing it again now. Some other panelist said surveys now show most Londoners want property prices to come down.

That section was over with pretty quick, and I guess Hitchens is classed as a fruit cake, but nevertheless these words were said.

For many sheeple though it needs to be spelled out - There are very few people now willing or able to borrow what you think your house is worth, there is no "ladder", it was a Ponzi scheme, and if you ever hope to sell you will have to substantially cut your price. Some HPC memes were coming from the panel, but they still insisted on speaking about "The Housing Ladder" - this drives me nuts.

On this QT, I thought it was beginning to be spelled out. Unless it is a tactic, to let Hitchens to say these things, classed as a Daily Mail sad case, therefore you should think the opposite. As for the Housing Ladder, the term per se does not annoy me, because ideally there would be a housing ladder, and one that was open to the majority of the working population.
