CREDIT CRUNCH: WE REALLY ARE OVER THE WORST

BRITAIN has ridden out the worst of the global credit crunch, leading world economists said last night.

After months of gloomy financial forecasts, the International Monetary Fund predicts the economy will bounce back and enjoy sustained growth.

The comments underneath are very sceptical:

"This has 2 b the BS story of the century = FACT"

"TELL IT TO THE MARINES ...

... or to the millions of people struggling to repay mortgages, credit card bills, personal loans, etc at the same time as struggling to afford to buy food, clothes, etc.

Sorry to be bleak, but there it is."

What is wrong with the Daily Express?

The owner, Richard "Dirty" Desmond (the former porn merchant) is up to his balls in property "investments." He is bound to order his editor to print crap like this. Another fine example of our supposedly free and independant media (yes, but owned by people with vested interests) . Duplicitous in the extreme when one considers many Britons have the pompous audacity to scorn so called dictatorships for their "controlled media" (such as Russia) when we have our very own "Aunty Pravda" - The BBC and all our daily newspapers our owned by rich, powerful individuals with vested interests! :angry:

A letter will be winging its way to the press complaints commission. This is literally the most sickening piece of VI trash journalism I have ever see.

Rubbish like this really annoys me as well but that's why it's there. I would say boycott the paper, but I agree with this bungy

"um,.... does anybody actually READ the daily express?"

;)

The more I read in sites such as this the more I realise what lies we are fed.

Agreed! My dear old mum says she's been feeling a bit down recently, I told her half the problem was that she reads the Express! Enough to depress anybody! That paper is utter garbage, but she claims to buy it for the crossword!

I advised her if she wants a decent crossword she should buy the Times instead. She has now stopped buying the Express, hopefully it will lighten her state of mind!

Have you noticed that they describe themselves as "The World's Greatest Newspaper" in the information bar at the top of the window when you open it?

There is a woman at my work who admits to buying the Express. She obvious reads it too and used to try to initiate discussions about the aforementioned Diana/Maddie as she thought they were really important issues.

The Daily Express is like the Daily Mail - without the principles or the readers! :lol:

I half agree. I think about 4% of adults read the Express. The Mail is 4 to 5 times as many.

Suggesting either has principles, or any virtues whatever, is quite another matter.

The Mail is far more balanced than the Express. If it's doom and gloom they print it, warts and all.

Their Finance Editor, Alex Brummer, is a good read and can be very bearish.

I notice that of all the papers the one that seems to sell out first is the Daily Mail.

i've always wondered what kind of person reads the Express............

The Mail with it's consumer type features and human interest articles and a political opinion that matches that of older suburbanites seems to have cornered that part of the market....

And even if you dont like the Mail if you read it you can see straight away who'd like it......but the Express seems to fall between 2 stools................

Fecal matter from a single bowel movement.

I think you'll find that The Express falls face first in BOTH STOOLS :lol:

I live in accomodation during the working week that puts out all the papers everyday for it's occupants to read.

It's a good gauge of who reads what if you go in at the end of the day when they've been neatly put back into their respective piles.

I just love picking up The Times. It's still all crisp and some of the pages haven't even been opened.

Sadly, I can't say the same for The Express and The Suns, Stars and Mirrors are the worst worn :rolleyes:

Don't worry we had the papers ramping last CRASH for years that recovery was on the way soon. Next month turnaround , next year etc , they did it for 5 years and Property Still Fell, they were so embarassingly wrong . Remember interest rates dropped from 15% to 6% (the lowest in decades) and property still fell for a further 3 years as CONFIDENCE was so low. CONFIDENCE was restored when property dropped to approx 3.5 earnings and it was cheaper to buy than rent on a monthly basis.

We have a long way to go with this CRASH I don't see the recovery being until 2015/2016 and thats being Optimistic. Our FUNDAMENTALS are screwed .

I totally agree Joey.

Incidentally the BBC didn't even entertain this in their morning paper debate. There was no sign of an Express :lol:

(How could there be when they're plugging the Chair of Citigroup's announcement in their main headlines?)

You couldn't make this up.

That was funny :lol::lol:

I agree, it's nice to wake up and read something that makes you chuckle :)

This happened in GC1, any piece of good news, no matter how small, was greeted with headlines about how the crash was over, everything will be fine, keep taking the happy pills....

Nail, head , hit.

Actually my neighbour 'reads' the Express. he's had his house on the market for 5 months now at a fabulously inflated price. HE kept telling me that there was no sign of a crash, I just smiled. Told me 3 months ago he wouldn't entetain 'silly offers' such as 10% less than the asking. He has now changed agents and reduced the asking by about 10% !
