Whether the airlines were stung with a green tax or not the "overseas" property bubble was bound to burst some time due to the cost of flights - which do fluctuate.

My guess that the BLTers who used their profits from the 2-3 terraces rented to students to buy a property in Spain or Turkey will now think about selling up the holiday home as they realise that they are to be hit by an IR rise that will mean that they effectively subsidise the students (yes!) and increased travel costs to thir little piece of heaven.

Therefore a property crash in the UK will have knock-on effects in other parts of Europe

Not to mention the HMO legislation that will make renting to students more expensive.
