Yeah right. They've all just kept their money waiting.

The people buying London over the llast few years have been foreign. They've fled for reasons other than UK politics.

Wow, its an economic boom already,thank the lord the recovery continues.

maybe we are just wrong and an economic boom really is just a money printed sub prime low interest rate unaffordable and dangerous debt bubble.

maybe Too, austerity really is spending even more, borrowing even more, cutting nothing and making up figures.

Good times ahead.
