The CML seem to have a media relations department of similar strength to Number 10 Downing Street.

However, the media accept their press releases ....at face value....without question....no matter how flawed they may be.

...and I have no idea why

"The CML said lending was buoyed by a strong (London property market and) consumer confidence."

In other words, "Lending [i.e. MEWing] was 18% higher than in April and nearly 30% higher than in May 2005."

Convincing people to take on yet more debt is not an achievement the CML should shout about.

Obviously an MPC interest rate decision is oooh, 3 weeks away. The mortgage industry is playing the MPC like a fiddle.
