Well Done The Metro...

Recommended Posts

Well, for once I'm impressed with the press. Can't remember the exact quote as I left my copy on the tube, but the Metro today after reporting the Rightmove figures of 200k + for an "average" home quoted some UK finance chap:

Non-verbatim...

"Of course you have to remember that the Rightmove figures are only asking prices"

"High house prices are only in the interest of EA's, the tax man, banks, and people downsizing"

...what a breath of fresh air. I wonder if anyone read past the headline?

I did read it, and I'm still in shock. Who knew a mainstream paper would ask if rising house prices might not be great news for everyone?! And all without the usual patronising cr&p about how FTB's need to get creative to get on the ladder. Well done, Metro.
