What goes up must come down

First Rung: Why the next house price crash will be worse

He's a VI. Therefore this article is about as useful as the cr@p that gets printed in the Daily Express.

Nice to see how he bangs on vehemently about 'Vested Interests' out to do the poor innocents harm, and yet, as he is someone who has sold to rent a while back, he is rather the 'Vested Interest' himself. I like how he completely overlooks that, and phrases it in quite an offhand manner later in the piece.

This isn't the first time I've read his thoughts on a coming crash. He's been banging on about one for a year or more now that I have read. Each time he sounds a little bit more desperate, and trying to convince himself we are heading for some '1929' crash scenario, instead of the price plateau situation thats actually happening.

I find it hard to take him seriously now, and I say that as someone Bearish on property.

I agree with most in this article I cannot believe how people keep borrowing more and more to fund their lifestyles sometime interest rates with rise because of global pressures then when its gets very nasty and there is a crash it will be everyone elses fault
