Yes, property prices are catching up with the south east so everyone’s ok!!

UK wealth divide 'set to shrink'

This is such a funny article, reminds me of a crap soundman who instead of lowering the volume of whatever is drowning everything else out keeps pushing up the volume of everything elseuntil eventually everything has peaked and you're left with a big f**king mess!!

  • Parts of East Midlands are quite cheap, such as Leicester, Notts etc, but there isn’t much of a choice of well paid jobs, hence why it cheap. But yes, the property market hasn’t gone sufficiently “tulip”
    in the Midlands and North East yet. Articles like this are intended to help correct that “oversight” presumably!

    Perhaps they mean we’ll all soon be broke, rather than just the poor sods who have taken out mortgages over the past 2 years.

  • Everybodys getting wealthier.
    I remember 50 Years ago – A working man, not particulary skilled (semi skilled) could afford quite reasonably to buy an average semi detached house (and have change), the remants of the wage would enable the communities to going into the village/town and purchase high quality goods from independent sellers.
    Now we have post grad phD skilled, struggling to get a one bedroom appartment buying water injected cheap frills mass produced flesh from the supermarkets and shopping in centres filled with charity shops/poundstretchers/poundland for a pot to pixx in.
    Nobodys getting wealthier, wev’e just got more ££££££ but its worthless!!

    NI is the same jobs-wise but it’s now the most expensive region of the UK outside London!

  • We can only wish that the Wealth Divide would also shrink and that the Debt Divide does not do the opposite!

    It does really annoy me that any news article that manages to mention the unrelenting upwards march of house prices is news. Seeing a title like ‘Wealth Gap Set to shrink’ you think it would talk about the reduction of poverty, or things which lead to rise in prosperity across the entire country. But, no it’s because house prices will grow strongly in places outside the SE. How this removes the wealth gap is not explained. In fairness the article also mentions the companies relocating and growing outside of London, which does actually create real wealth, but you get the impression that ‘house price increase’ are the only words people want to here.
