Newtown Emerson writer and commentator... I've got to say, his comments were brilliant! Some of the best bits...

Newton Emerson: "To get the market started again prices, for a starter home, need to come down to 50-60 grand."

Newton Emerson: "... huge slump in the housing market ... which represents, even in Northern Ireland alone, tens of billions of pounds of money wiped off assets... The Assembly - in fact, I would say even the UK government - simply does not have the where-with-all (I think he means money) to produce a stimulus package that is going to get that moving again. The only thing that is going to get it moving again is when prices drop to a level where people can borrow enough money to buy a house."

Newton Emerson: "... I just heard more absurd, special pleading (he is refering to John Armstrong from the Construction and Employers Federation :lol:) ... too much liquidity by the banks that got us into this mess in the first place!... the Executive had better not spend my taxes, buying up these guys surplus stock, when it is still over valued by 200 to 300%!. What needs to happen is that these over borrowed developers need to go bust."

Newton Emerson: "... these developers and the banks are engaged in a staring contest, over who is going to bail each other out, while trying to keep prices at their existing absurd levels!"

David Dunseith: "Newton Emerson struck a cord with scores of listeners, who flocked to our call lines to voice your support."

Who thought a year ago that we would hear this on Radio Ulster?

Brilliant! Thank you Mr. Emerson.

I just happened to tune into Radio Ulster and per chance heard that interview. Thats probably the best analysis regarding house prices in NI and where they need to go I heard to date. The other ***** being interviewed seem to think that there was now affordability in the market.

Credit to Mr Emerson perhaps him and Mr FP from the site could form a coalition.

Always liked Newton, especially with his snippets on Hearts and Minds. He always provided an objective view when writing for the IN.

If Newton reads this site I think he is really BB in disguise. He thinks starter homes should be £50-£60k. :D

And lets not forget the wonderful satire that Newt provided courtesy of now "decommissioned" Portadown News.

Always liked the cut of his jib did I.
