Rising Prices. Daily Express Gloom. Not house prices obviously.

Recommended Posts

Energy bills rise....kick in the teeth for families. 

House prices rise......more good news for the economy and joy for hard working families.  

Even now, they don't get it. And by "they" I don't mean the Daily Express. There is universal hand wringing puzzlement among even the most educated circles at the rising cost of social care, health care, child care, fuel, heating, food, services, life in general.  Yet joy when the cost of everyone's biggest unavoidable living expense rockets by 2,000 pounds a month, and when interest rates are lowered to the point that makes money practically worthless.  Among all the economists, analysts and experts nobody has managed to establish a link between the triad of loose credit, rampant house price inflation, and the rising cost of pretty much everything else.  It's not just the media. Even people I know and respect don't see that an average house price of 500k in the SE means that a junior doctor is not going to accept a 80 hour working week for less than 40k per annum. Schools, elderly care, child care and health will be unaffordable, no matter how they are funded. People with 2 million in assets are left to rot on hospital trollies because the doctors and nurses who could treat them cannot afford basic housing.

There really are a lot of stupid people in this country.  I personally love it when energy prices go up as it makes people a little more circumspect in the way they use it.

What are you talking about?

Its fantastic when energy prices rise, the extra wealth generated is a massive boost to the economy. 

What, you don't own an oil company?  Well you shouldn't have wasted all your money on iPhones and flatscreen spiralizers.

Come on...nobody pays any attention to the Express.  They have a stock dozen or so front pages that they rotate.  "House prices soar" is probably the most popular, the people that read this stuff have no brains.

Express have headlines but every other media outlet reports house prices rising as  positive news ..And as OP says a price increase in anything else is met with doom and gloom .
