Kirsty flaps like a seagull on Question Time last night

Question Time Thurs 14 Dec 207

Ah bless her, she was doing so well till the question about over-inflated house prices came up. "... how do you define an inflated market ? ..." classic She bumbled on until it became embarrising for all. Piers blurted out the truth though, and it all went quiet. 32 mins in.

  • Switched it over and saw she was on – actually couldnt stand to watch another second with her on it. I really dont understand why such people are on these shows anyway, she should be embarrassed by her lack of knowledge – rather than wishing to parade it. Well i suppose it shows she doesnt even know that she has a lack of knowledge ……. By the way I’d like to see her eat her hat – it must be of the xxx(to infinity)L size sombreo to fit her head!

    According to Kirsty isn’t HIPs the reason we’ve still got troops stuck in Iraq and didn’t HIPs murder Dodi and Diana?

    At least any hat does not contain carbohydrates=calories, but just fibres. Hats diet may be good for Kirsty Allsop. Eat one every day from now!

  • Well said JU – the diet would do her some good.

    Can anyone elaborate on what was said? How did the silly bint embarrass herself this time?

  • Didn’t she do well!

    She should be ashamed of herself and so should David Cameron for hiring her. She clearly knows nothing at all about the market she claims to represent and shamelessly parroted VI’s propaganda without seemingly the knowledge or ability to engage in anything beyond ‘supply & demand’ , ‘no such thing as a national market’, ‘HIPS to blame’ ….nonsense.
    She is a VI of enormous proportion, seems to be less than bright, and is clearly being used by the property industry to espouse their shit for pounds. BTLer’s (and other soon to bankrupt types) seem to rate her as some sort of Guru. These ‘Guru’s’ often emerge in bull markets, and then disappear at the first sniff of a bear looking a bit silly. Last night she looked silly, and shockingly out her depth.
    I almost felt a bit sorry for her at one point. Almost.

  • Cameron should be embarrassed. It’s the equivalent of making a high street punter assistant coach of the English football team because their last ten selections have come in.

  • What was all that cr4p about the London market being so different because half the world want to live there.

    Could it be that London is where all her property interests are?

    Silly moo really made an idiot of herself, not as much as she is going to if she carries on like this though!!!

  • Chris Patten and Piers Morgan made Kirsty look and feel rather uncomfortable. Kirsty was hoplessly out of her depth and David Cameron should ditch her, before the situation in the housing market gets any worse.

  • Question popped up about the “over inflated” UK property market and David D asked Kirsty to answer first as the “expert” in this area – no straight answer (which seasoned politicians get away with) lots of waffle and basically stated that some parts of the market (inference being London) will contine to rise whilst there will possibly be price falls in other areas.

    Should have be titled comedy time rather than question time.

  • Social Justice Through Housing says:

    When Kristy was going on about anybody who becomes rich wants to come live in London, and that is why there is no such thing as a national housing market, I was thinking that’s right the rich of the world must be desperate to live in Hackney or East Ham or Barking or Croydon or Streatham!

    She is right, lots of rish people want to buy housing in the UK – in Westminster and The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, but London is a little bigger than that (or maybe she does not move in normal circles), and the country is certainly not just London.

    The bottom line is rich people will always be able to afford to pay the prevailing price/ ride the prevailing boom and bust – because they are rich – stupid! The victims will be the normal people, both those that have been kept from buying a home over the last decade by this boom, and even some decent people who bought a home in the last few years thinking they had to get into the market – and so jumped in while it was high.

    The disappointing thing for me, given there were some reasonable and bright and conscientious people on the panel, was that everybody allowed the ‘supply and demand’ and global credit crunch argument to prevail, without putting any blame at the door of the government.

    The government has a duty to ensure housing is not just used as another finanical asset (given the huge social impact decent housing for all has); and the government through the FSA/BoE control both regulation of Banks/Financial Institutions – which were handing out money to anybody who came knocking (hence fueling this housing binge) – and set monetary policy which has purposefully been used to fuel a housing based consumer boom.

    This Government, and the opposition are as much to blame as banks. Yes banks chased profits, yes banks are greedy – it is the Governments job to regulate them.

    This hugely serious issue was passed over by the panel without any serious comment or thought.

    Kirsty is a clown. When Crusty hangs up his boots on The Simpsons they’ll be a replacement – Kirsty! Hopefully she’ll need another job before too long!

  • Well, to be fair, she spoke quite a lot of sense on the other topics, but clearly has a mega problem when it comes to accepting that the property bubble is finally bursting.

    Incredible to hear Ms Blears talk about the need for housebuilding as though her govt had only just come to power..

  • I agree that Chris Patton spoke some sense – But Piers Morgan – No, He praised GB for his handling of the economy fogetting to mention that it is based entirely on debt.

    Definition from the Uxbridge English Dictionary: Countryside – The murder of Piers Morgan.

  • Kirsty was superb on question time last night. She is absolutely right about the markets being stratified here in the UK, she is right that there will not be price crash in London as there never will be, she was right about Hips being useless (as they are) and she was right about the simple laws of supply and demand, she was right on the waste of Money the Diana enquiry is costing and right to suggest giving that waste to police salaries and she spoke sense on every other topic even the football manager. I like Piers Morgan but he is a close personal friend of Gordon Brown and his family so bear that in mind. Kirsty was superb last night – compare her to that weasel faced party line spinning useless jelly that is Hazel Blears and she shone even more. All that and she (Kirsty) looked stunning too. Watch out Nigella!

  • @Andrew – ‘she is right that there will not be price crash in London as there never will be’

    What you mean like the London house marked crashed in 1989. You haven’t just bought a London ‘crash-pad’ from Krusty have you ?

    Have to say I was very disappointed on last night’s program when someone in the audience asked a question about how the tax laws in this country favour those who already own property over those who don’t, and the question just got skipped over without being answered. I’m guessing that everyone on the panel, including David Dimbleby, own a few BTLs and holiday homes each so didn’t want to risk bringing this inequality to the general public’s attention.

  • Oh she’s a proper middle class twit.

    Andrew, I was living in London in the early 90s and I can tell you that prices in London can crash. The UK housing market/economy has been fattened for slaughter to perfection. I don’t think those responsible realised that this was what they were doing but nevertheless they’ve done it and large swathes of London will be dragged under whether they like it or not.

    Don’t forget, the first run on a UK bank in 150 years. We are entering a time of UNPRECEDENTED developments.
