Interesting it would explain why VI Rags like the DE are desparately trying to pump up the flagging market. Put it this way I have seen rought the same number of properties on Rightmove in Peterborough for 90 for atleast the last 4 months. I suspect what has been happening is that the values are being skewed by the Olympic Games effect in London..

I agree it would seem that way but the BOE has little interest in house prices other than what people can borrow against them to buy goods, If you look at it historically the UK rates are set by many factors and house prices have always been a consequence rather than a reason.
