Was It The Promise Of An 18% Drop In House Prices That Did It?

Recommended Posts

That must have been very tempting for the (priced out) youngsters who were thought to be the most likely demographic to vote remain!

Did Osborne shoot himself in the foot?

The remain played the wrong type of game.......they thought the public stupid and couldn't see beyond fear and rhetoric manipulative tactics........what you haven't got you will never miss. ;)

The young would rather have the option to live and work in the EU than a cheap(er) house.

Good point......no man is an island, and houses are cheaper in many other places......freedom to roam. ;)

I think it helped. Fancy telling a generation priced out of secure housing that voting LEAVE will make house prices go down, as if its a BAD thing? :) Own goal.

Yes, that did backfire on Osborne and Cammers. It was certainly the main reason that I voted Leave. ^_^

They're not going to be living abroad if they can't find work, and as many can't speak the language, what chance do they have ?

Unless they are going to live 3 to a caravan / bedsit & drastically undercut the locals / immigrants, negating the language barrier with price.

Is it a delusion / meme of the majority of the young, having a chance of earning living & working abroad ?

Just seen a rather odd piece on Sky news where they show all areas with houseprices lower than 150k and how they voted (all bar one was for LEAVE), then go on to say this is the reason they voted to leave the EU...presumably because they wanted HIGHER house prices which apparently = wealth? WTF

Here's another example of the (vile) BBC not reporting the facts, if interested.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36621927

Yet no mention of the fact the price of crude has already dropped significantly. ****** the BBC.

Tosh. The BBC reported the fall in prices in full as it happened last year and earlier this year.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-30693905

Crude oil has been rising steadily for the past three months or so. Significant falls today due, no doubt, to economic fears over Brexit.

Are you saying that what I'm saying is tosh? Or the BBC? They have omitted to say that the price of crude today has sunk by 6%, but are leading with the idea that the price will rise at the pumps next week. They aren't mutually exclusive.

....yeah but, what good is a < £150k house when on min wage job, zero hours, self employed, short-term contract or no job and no BOMAD or other help to help out with saved deposit? ;)
