"House price inflation varied throughout the UK.

In London average prices rose 2.2% during the year to November, compared with a 0.5% fall in October. "

How exactly does an (still falling) annualised statistic compare with a spot figure of falling prices in October?

Spin baby Spin!!

To be honest it's just plain laziness. What happens is the company just does a Press Release in an article style using terms like "the Halifax have seen" rather than "we have seen", then news agencies just print them verbatum.

It boils down to the fact that the only people doing these Press Releases are people with a vested interest. If there were real money to be made in bad news and falling prices we would see that also.

I'm not making excuses for the BBC but thats just the way it is.
