Three points.

One independent.

He agreas with us

but do not worry, an estate agent and a mortgage lender are here to tell you otherwise

At work I get told by intelligent people that people who want to lend then a great deal of money say thats its a great idea that they do so.

They seem surprised when I point this out.

and now the nationwide, mortgage lenders, are saying its a bad idea..

He [James Ferguson] says obvious warning signs at present include a big contraction in overall lending - "sure enough, total loans, mortgages and credit on plastic from banks have dropped sharply" - rising unemployment and a drop in the rate of mortgage equity withdrawal.

That's simply not true, one only has to look at the growth of broad money supply to despute that, credit card lending is down but MEW is growing as a proportion of post tax income.

I have a real problem with this stuff, it really dents their credibility.
