I get really lost with all this, one minute it's record highs then lows and yet we see words like 'Stabilising' :S

The guardian headline is very positive, although it does mention the 12% fall, but justifies it by saying it was the timing of easter. There's an excuse for everything!!

Sebastian, I think they work on the premise that we are all too stupid to see through the propaganda and therefore believe everything we are told. And judging by the state of the education system (of course standards are rising Tony), that may become true. As and aside, I had first-hand experience last week of the depths to which UK education had fallen. In the newsagents I asked a young lady (16 or 17) for 18 stamps, only to get the reply "Sorry, but we only sell them in books of 12 or 6".

What I really like about this article is the mention that interest rates ARE going to rise this summer. CML know best.
