we all know intrest rates are going to rise again!! Will it be a shock again to these people that believe cheap money is forever?? Well as long as the banks are happy with people borrowing up to the top! Thats all that is supporting this...People can lie about there incomes borrow more but one day they cant borrow any more then they go into IVA or bankrupt few years down the line start again..But its the banks that have to pick up the pieces...Not that I feel sorry for them! Put mortgage rates up and dont even put saving rates up in line..
