Usual Times property spin
but what interested me was the commentary about high speed rail. These kind of articles always talk about convenience of commuting but never price. The fact is, an annual season ticket to London from say, Norwich is Â£6,212 so anything you save from a mortgage by buying a less expensive house is lost on the cost of the commute. The future is perhaps home-working which I already do quite regularly (even though I live only a couple of miles from my office) although this is not practical for many workers.
