Surely this is all well orchestrated pre-election Pathe good news-ville? Has it not got to the stage where it matters not how much is asked, but how much folk can pay out (I did write 'afford' there but then I laughed)? Based on flat wages, poor work contracts and a noteable dip in new mortgage lending, asking prices and what people are prepared to pay have to meet up somewhere. Million/billionaires can play house swapsies all year long if they want. When talking of homes to live in for the average Joe this sort of 'news' must now bear no relevance?

The population is being primed for another boom with this constant news about the grey army mobilising and preparing to enter the market as buy to letters.

Even if the numbers turn out to be low, the lazy press will run with this meme and it more than likely will be enough to drive the sentiment, just like HTB did.

If nobody is forced to sell, then everybody can fly kites and help keep the illusion going.

I like this comment about HPI :- https://notayesmanseconomics.wordpress.com/2015/03/16/do-women-have-a-different-perspective-to-men-on-the-uk-house-price-boom/#comment-13561

my fear is that there never is a reversal , no tipping point ever occurs people, just pay more and more on debt until there is no middle class, and no political backlash because people are too tired working 16hrs a day , houses get smaller , roads more congested , trains more expensive , suicide and divorce rates higher , children stupider until it really is like the matrix and anyone who gave a shit is in new zealand

In a way, I say bring it on. Bring on the further madness. Let a shit house earn more than a productive 25 year old's full-time salary. And let the government further contort free markets to make maintain these injustices. Who wants stability? Not home owners. Not non-home owners. Stability is no longer a possible future. Nobody wants stability anymore. We're at economic war.

FUK.gifElection Forecast 2015 - Opinion Polls Trending Towards Conservative Outright WinThe Market Oracle 07:45 Sun, 15 Mar 2015

At one time Labour were odds on favourites to win most seats but that's the Tories now.

Given demographics pointing to more older people voting, Osbanker has won it with his pension changes?

The betting suggests they aren't expected to win with an overall majority though.

I'd give up my savings and pension to watch it all burn now. Screw them all!

I think we all probably have.

My wife keeps getting nice expensive jewellery...she thinks I am being generous.....

HMO Daddy can fix the affordability constraints for a while longer provided the flood of Balts and Elbonians into the UK never dries up. And given that the City of London is sure to do everything it can to frustrate anti-EU sentiment in any referendum (hint: sharp crash and recession in the months preceding the vote caused by 'market uncertainty') the literal and figurative Balkanisation of UK housing stock seems almost assured.

Does the Tory result improve when the opposition vote is split amongst several differing protest options?

Spain is one country I haven't done to much research in to. No particular reason.

Malta is still my number 1 target.

What's the economy like in Bilbao? Unusually, you can drive there relatively easily from England

Think very carefully before going to Thailand. "land of smiles" - bullsh1t - land of lies.

Worst of all you will be driven mad and to despair by the most obnoxious characters and the greatest density low-lifer concentration anywhere in the world. The majority of the expat Brits are cashing in their HPI winnings on cheap sex and drink. It is for the best that the young sap that bought the 55 year old (single) painter's house in Chingford for 600K doesnt know where the 600k has gone - otherwise he would puke to think he will spend the rest of his life slaving to pay this debt. The only consolation is that the expat's HPI winnings will almost certainly be cheated out of him by some pooying talaat.

It's not as cheap as it was. Thai Baht -30% now at 48 instead of 70 in 2007.

True, but it's been 48-50 since 2010, so not much has changed recently. Still a much cheaper option than living in the UK, unless you live like a 2-week tourist :)

Sounds like you've just holidayed in Thailand. If you live in Thailand, you can actually choose where you want to live. You don't have to live in an apartment overlooking Soi Cowboy or Walking Street. Not all Thai women have tattoos, or are grandmasters at Connect 4 (never trust one who is, by the way). In fact, you've described a miniscule part of life in Thailand. It's a big and varied country outside the "certain" tourist tramlines.

I have travelled extensively around Thailand including the rural north. I first went in 1995. I stayed six months in 2006.

If you want to live in rural / provincial Thailand I wish you luck. Boredom and alcoholism will be your enemy.

I know a couple of people who were living in Thailand but both have left saying it's too expensive now and they don't feel as welcome. One has gone to the Philippines and the other to Cambodia. Obviously the exchange loss still applies but perhaps the prices were cheaper to start?

From your two posts on Thailand, it sounds like you had a whale of a time.

I've not been to Thailand for a few years but I have to say it is probably my favourite country in the world, everyone should go at least once.
