Scottish Widows have just returned from Mars

Graduates 'face housing struggle'

A groundbreaking survey by Scottish Widows suggests that graduates are finding it increasingly difficult to get onto the property ladder. Perhaps Scottish Widows should have extended their survey to anybody possessing a pulse that was trying to get onto the property ladder. Those Scottish Widows folks are sharp I tell you sharp.

    “Graduate wages are not keeping up with house price” (sic)

    Those twenty-somethings at the BBC are obviously the best and brightest.

    Perhaps some light at the end of the tunnel! So far it has been in the interests of middle aged journalists who bought first and second homes when property was cheap to talk the market up whenever possible. As the next generation of highly indebted, propertyless graduates work their way up the media career ladder more and more will surely realise that it is in their interests to talk the market down.

  • I remember the days of the late nineties in Stoke-on-Trent. In the roughest areas, it was easy to spot the drug dealers, you would see a 40k car outside a 25k house. The same houses are now 70k.

    Captain Sensible. You have a good point there! As the current younger generation gradually works their way up through the ranks they will be able to use their vested interest in talking things down.
