  1. Bankers?
  2. Govt?
  3. Estate Agents?
  4. Irresponsible borrowers?
  5. Royalty?

Govt. Buck stops with them. The banks though daft and shorterm-ist with interest rates are only doing what theyre supposed to do (be competitive with interest rates). The government has created the low interest rate environment for them to work with, via the not very independant BoE

And of course irresponsible borrowers, but they should have never been offered such sums in the first place.

For the record, i dont think it would be any different under the tories. Bush and his 'conservatives' have followed much the same path afterall.

Part of the problem is the blame game. Tony Bliar even coined the phrase "name & shame".

No-on (IMHO) was forced to do anything.

They made choices.

Which have consequences.

Take some responsibility, FFS.

Jesus???

http://www.reformation.org/secrets-of-the-bank-of-rome.html

Ignatius LIEola was the founder of the reorganized "Bank" of Rome. The Jesuits were founded on August 15, 1534, and LIEola was officially commissioned to reorganize the almost bankrupt "Bank" of Rome in 1540.

At the time that LIEola appeared in Rome, the "Bank" of Rome was on the verge of BANKRUPTCY due to the preaching of the Word of God and the withdrawal of millions of accounts. The Imperialists under Charles V., actually invaded and sacked the city of Rome in 1527. They stole most of the wealth, destroyed priceless art treasures and even tortured Cardinals to make them divulge the secret hiding places of their riches:

"The Spaniards were the most brutal, it was generally agreed. In the destruction of Rome the Germans were bad enough, the Italians were worse, but worse of all were the Spaniards. They practiced unheard of tortures to compel their victims to disclose where they had hidden their treasures" (Rome, the Biography of a City, p. 159).

The banks and the government for not imposing regulations on the amount they lend. If the banks could only lend 3.5% salary we wouldnt be in this position now (and I would have a house).

Totally the right answer....

Cobblers.

You can't tame a shark and you cannot regulate billionaires.

Get real, get over it. The only solution is to abandon all regulation completely and face facts.

I am not sure it would have been the same under another administration. The wanton excess spending by Government is not something we'd have seen from others. The Stalinist obsession with attempt State control of the menas of production is also something we would not have seen, so the contribution of planning law to the proliferation of flats, absence of houses.

Inflation is partly the result of excess competition for resources, including labour, so the dramatic extension of Govt spending plays its role towards the current inflationary pressures.

Me, and the other selfish FTB'ers who idiotically have allowed themselves to be priced out of the market. If only we were better liars and could convince the banks that yes we really do earn £80,000 a year and therefore can take out monster sized mortgages, everything would be fine again in the World.

I thought we'd already established having no rules doesn't work? And if you have rules you have laws which is socialism.
