House Price Crash Forum

Does he really believe that ever-increasing house prices are a good thing? Does he think that everyone else believes it?

Quite incredible. Worth keeping that clip for posterity, I reckon. Perhaps this should be pinned (although there's quite a lot of stuff recently that's worth pinning - I wonder why...).

He was on the politics show on sunday, an interview I'm surprised didn't get much attention on here as it showed him squirm in his seat when the subject of his BTL in Bristol came up. Anyways he said exactly the same thing on that, high house prices are due to a strong, prosperous economy. The government must now help people get on the ladder, that's the next challenge.

Following that to its logical conclusion TB obviously believes a strong economy is one where the populace are reliant on government intervention to satisfy one of their most basic needs. Talk about nailing your colours to the mast.

Basically saying house prices had doubled in the last 10 years which meant there was plenty of prosperity - followed by interviews with locals saying prices were too high

what a complete and utter.................................

Maybe he should put his money where his mouth is, move out of no. 10 for a week, give him an average wage and point him off towards an EA. A good idea for a one off TV special.

This should be standard practice for all MPs. They should be paid whatever the national average wage is and have their pay increases capped to CPI. We might see more realistic economic policy then.
