House Price Crash Forum

Recommended Posts

As you all know, the 'independent' BOE is actually controlled by the Fat Controller in a tartan skirt, Gordon 'Big Strap' McBrown.

He's forced them to sit on their hands for the last 10 months because the lardy Pict REALLY REALLY REALLY wants to be PM, and the only thing he has going for him is his so called 'economic miracle', (or 'the biggest debt bubble in history' as it will be called in years to come).

It's now reaching breaking point though.

BOE members will soon have to choose between looking like complete and utter tits, or going against the wishes of the haggis-munching Sturmbarnfuhrer himself.

Given their amazing historical display of nerve and backbone, I'd expect there to be a mass offer of resignation if Fatso won't let them have just one teensy weensy rate rise.

And Mr 'Faux Accounting' Brown will then be put on the spot.

Either admit publicly he's been controlling it all along as the BOE members walk out the door in mock disgust, or let them have the much need rise, which will crucify what's left of the housing market, just like last time.

Whichever course the greasy Yak tickler decides to follow, it's gonna be fun to watch (and will probably screw his chances of getting into No 10 - nice one Tony - which was the point all along...!)

We miffed by the "West Lothian Question"? :D

Why dont the media call a spade a spade, and refer to it as the "why the f*ck should England be run by a bunch of Scotts"

Gordon Broon's chances of becoming PM hopefully being the 1st casualties

Yeah but GB doesn't so much tell the MPC what to do as manipulate the goal posts via the ONS. As long as he can keep demonstrating that inflation is on target by ever more devious weighting / fiddling with the "basket of goods" which make up the CPI then the Bof E will never raise rates.

Just like poms, there are good scots, and bad scots.

Bad scots are lying hypocritical chancers who happen to have weaseled their way into a positionof power, and little ****s who forever bang on about 'the oil money' when as everyone knows, the net flow of cash from England to Scotland has been positive for the last 500 years.

Now get back into your cattle shed and finish eating your deep fried mars bar with extra fag ends, sheepbotherer.

who are the good scots?

An Englishman entered a bar and stood beside a Scotsman. After they had chatted for a while the Scot asked "Where are you from?" The Englishman replied "I'm from the finest country in the world." The Scot looked sceptical and replied "Are you? You have a damn funny accent for a Scotsman."

An Englishman, roused by a Scot's scorn of his race, protested that he was born an Englishman and hoped to die an Englishman. "Man," scoffed the Scot, "hiv ye nae ambeetion?"

Everyyone knows England is trash....

Dinnae be daft man. It was thatcher who deregulated the financial industry allowing the banks to lend irresponsibly. It was the media who mass produced property porn. They however simple rode the backs of the populations houseprice hysteria.

If you think your problems are down to a single man. Think again.

And don't be so offensive. Tw@t.

Oh, and "Anyone but England" :D

typical loch dredger response.

I'm not talking about thatcher, house price inflation, the 80's the 90's, TV scheduling, 1870 railways development or tennis heros of the 40's.

I'm talking about the BOE and Mad 'Jock' McBrown, the biggest luckiest incompetent chancer ever to land a plum job in the govt.

Dont be so touchy tw@t

greasy Yak tickler

Like others here I'm having trouble with the parsing of this phrase. Please choose:

a ) greasy (Yak tickler) - Someone who is greasy and also tickles yaks

b ) (greasy Yak) tickler - Someone who tickles yaks that happen to be greasy

I think you overestimate Brown's influence over the BoE. Yes, he nominates the external members, but once they get to the bank they have a nasty habit of going native. That's what being surrounded by central bankers does to you.

And the idea that the BoE has been holding off on rate rises because of direct orders from Gordon is ridiculous. Would I like to see a rate rise? Yes! But if you look at all the data they base their decisions on, the evidence for the need for a rate rise to control inflation has been very ambiguous. The truth is they're uncertain, as well they should be. After all, everyone here seems to be convinced that a recession is on its way, so why should interest rates be raised now to take effect just as the economy tanks?

If you look around the world, you'll see that all central banks have made similar decisions over the past few years. It's unlikely that the BoE's decisions were down to Gordon's influence.

Entertaining post, but ease up on the conspiracies. It just makes us seem less credible.

I've worked in some of the biggest banks in the world, including UK and Jap monsters, not to mention the EBRD, and I can tell you unequivocably that if you think any 'banker' knows what he's doing, you need to get out more.

I spy a party line with a majority of political appointments and already a 'walkee'.

u mean we all followed the yanks down, then back up *except the UK*???

Thanks, I try! And it's not a conspiracy. I got it from the Times.

god its friday, time for another slur at the English...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scientists in the UK have discovered that a large number of the male

population have a ***** the size of 2" or less.

To clarify this the government has asked that those with this condition

to identify themselves by displaying a white flag with a red cross when

driving their cars for the month of June.

It doesn't matter. Once the Yak is being tickled, the grease is distributed evenly.

Btw, what is a "Sturmbarnfuhrer" (as mentioned in the first post) -- Leader of a stormy barn? Is that related to 'Captain of the stormy teacup'?

Chaps> too much speculation.

Overall I don't vote Labour, but they have done an __OK__ job. The next ten years is going to be tough for any party as governments, tough & possibly unpopoular decisions need to be made.

Anyway, let's stop hoping that GB, BOE, or some government body is going to make a decision that suits us.

Let's take ownership and get out there do some viewings, talk to vendors and EAs, and put low but sensible offers in.

That's taking action for yourself and controlling your own life.

OK, I'm being annoying.

But I want people on the board to know that we aren't in a "crash"; there might be one later but the chances aren't great.

Some time in future and even in crash territory, your negotiating skills will make the difference between 10 or 20K discount, that buys several holidays.

Therefore, crash or not, you will do yourself a great experience to get our there and have a look and do all the other stuff I keep annoyingly repeating etc. etc....

Also setting expectations does better for price movement than no buyers in the first place.

Patronising would be a better word than annoying!

The majority of posters here are fully aware that a major correction is yet to come.
