A £250,000 House...

Recommended Posts

... and something about a man and his six year old daughter lying in a pool of blood.

"The £250,000 four-bedroom house on a new-build estate in East Cowes, Isle of Wight, has been sealed off as forensics officers combed the house for clues into the tragic incident."

What purpose does the value of the house have in this tragic event? Totally disgusting how this is deemed relevant in anyway. I can just imaging the journalists on the scene:

Police: "we have the dead body of a man and his daugh...",

Journalist: "yes, yes, yes, but how much is the house worth around these parts?"

The Daily Mail disease. Disgusting indeed.

I have, on a few occasions, shown such articles to others and asked if they see anything odd or irrelevant in the article. They read. Read it again and shrug their shoulders, "Nope" is the usual response.

"And what relevance or signifcance is the supposed house price value to the article?".

"Errrrrr......." is the response back.

I always thought it was snobbery. A 250k house with 4 bedrooms suggests lower income etc to the London centric media where that only buys a dingy 1 bed flat in Poplar
