Daily Express on tip top comedy form

KEEP INTEREST RATES LOW

"REASONS to be cheerful: the sun’s shining, Andy Murray’s still in with a shout at Wimbledon and the housing market is springing back to life. An 11 per cent increase in sales reflects the enormous benefits to the economy of our record low interest rates, a point that should not be lost on the Bank of England. A property-owning middle class has been one of the foundations on which our economic success over the past 30 years has been built." But... but... under A Georgist system, EVERYBODY would be a "property owner" AS OF RIGHT (by getting his Citizen's Dividend out of publicly collected land rents). Whether each citizen then chooses to buy or to rent makes little difference. So which system is better - Home-Owner-Ism or Georgism?

  • Sorry to be a bit off topic, but I noticed this in Asda on Saturday: nice to see Diana’s still in the news.

  • Posting this here is a red rag to a bull.

    Talking of which, this article is for housing bulls. So the last housing article in the Express must have been for housing bears. Ignore

    OMFG a killer heatwave?! :-/

    At least I can get OK for just 99p.

    And a free bar of Milka! Worth a quid!

    And free flip flops!

    Diana would have been so dignified and beautiful at 50.

    God bless the Daily Express for pushing to keep interest rates low. It is the only justice to normal freeholder folk in this sick and depraved society. Seriously, did you hear? The people downstairs are renting. Probably on benefits. Not heard a word of English from them either.

  • Free flip-flops! That’ll be useful when the Express finds itself needing to flip-flop on house price reporting.
