  • Love the way the media subtly moves around a topic as it reads the changing public reactions. It was only a few months ago when all you could read in the Times was how much you could make from property and what a mistake it is to sell to rent, but now HPC has become “de rigeur, Daaaarling”. So hop on the bandwaggon and sell some more copies. Lets hope this time there really are major drops so normal salaries can cover affordable mortgages and help to build a stronger society based on the common good, not the “I, Me, Mine” mentallity of the past decade, at least until the next time.
