Will The Government Be Vexed As Property As Peaked Too Soon


Recommended Posts

9 months before the next election?

Wasnt their plan for it to peak right up until the election or until the very end of this year?

Will they try and keep it rising even though it seems to have peaked in London at least?

Or will they hope that most people will not notice.

With a 7% deficit, I doubt they will be able to afford any new schemes.

Probably not. Labour are a shambles.

Haha, surely even the tories know that if Cameron couldn't beat the unpopular brown, in the middle of a recession, after 13 years of labour rule, the chances of him winning a second term are, er, slim, to say the least.

Add to that the right losing votes to the UKIP, and the labour getting the lib dem votes (albeit less than I anticipated) the tory devil does not have a snowball in hells chance.

The tories only chance is to deport Cameron, exhume the corpse of Enoch Powell, install it as leader and out UKIP UKIP.

Yes, you underestimate the extent to which us country folk have come to despise 'camerons conservatives' :)

But when labour win it will be full on property madness like last time so this will be considered a trough. 2 years from now I'll be kicking myself for not buying at ridiculous prices.

No - the "System" no longer can give the illusion of being in control. If the uck-wit Balls gets in and does what he wants, the markets will hammer the UK economy. There is no liquid backstop, other than big time inflation.

Next April pension changes come into effect that will give millions potential access to large sums of cash.

Just one month later there is a general election.

What PR use will be made of the former to influence the latter?

Express headline?: "Dad's Pension Bonanza Means Deposit Joy For 1000's of Young Home Hunters"

Another Help to Buy surge from a new direction - just in time for the vote?

Correct. The UK govt cannot continue borrow £120bn/yr without setting off a debt interest spiral, if they wish to maintain spending at the present rate the socialists (Osborne or Balls, I believe they both qualify for the description) will have to print the budget with potentially extreme negative consequences for sterling and gilts. Ultimately asset prices and current prices will have to brought back into alignment to create a sustainable recovery. Either asset prices deflate furiously or current price inflation will soar. We are moving into the endgame.

Help to buy only helped a few thousands of morons.its main success was in turning sentiment from the housing market moving "sideways" to 2007 +20% in a few weeks.

Even if these April fools don't all pile into BTL the media will be hyping it and its imminent effect on the market so much I assume sentiment will be very bullish again and we will see hordes of 2007+30% kite flyers on wrong move.
