LONDON (Reuters) - Wilson Bowden (WLB.L: Quote, Profile, Research), the country's fifth-biggest housebuilder,
reported a 14 percent drop in 2005 profit
on Wednesday after weathering what it called the most challenging housing market for many years.

At least they are hoping things might get a little better this year despite the retail crash, rising unemployment, affordability issues, inflation (council tax, electricity and gas bills, petrol......).
