Fair summary

THING YOU PAY THE BANK TO LET KEEP YOUR STUFF IN IS WORTH £6000 LESS

"THE thing you keep your stuff in that's owned by the bank and that no-one wants to buy anyway is worth £6000 less than it used to be, according to new research.The Halifax monthly thing price survey found that if there was even the slightest possibility of anyone wanting to buy the place where your stuff is you would just end up owing the Halifax even more money. A spokesman said: "This is the biggest thing price fall since there were records. So, that's maybe 1984? When did Brothers in Arms come out? Anyway, what it means for the likes of you is that for the time being you should probably just keep living there, giving us our FUCKING MONEY every month and making yourself feel better by putting up a new coat hook as part of your elaborate pretence at ownership."

  • Me too, that made me chuckle – good point though, what would happen if everyone one day just stopped paying their mortgages – it wouldn’t be the end of the world, just the end of some big banks (the biggest landlords) and that’s not a bad idea!

    Would anyone like to come and see my new coat hook?

  • You read a lot more sense there than in many of the articles in the dumbed-down Daily Telegraph.

  • It’s not just a “thing you keep your stuff in”, it’s a “thing that you and your loved ones live in”. People have an emotional attachment to their homes; they don’t have an emotional attachment to an external lock-up garage which they store their stuff in.

    The mortgaged amount remains the same. Don’t sell the house, sell the dream!

    Now, let’s start all over again.
