  • Hmmmm, (strokes chin), yeah alright daily fail.
    The only good news in this article is that the vested interests are getting more and more desperate in there BS vernacular.
    Do they honestly believe this?? Really?
    Still there a lot to be said for newspaper headlines like that, they carry some weight with the overleveraged and/or greedy. People read what they want to see, we are all guilty of it.

  • All UK Governments are the same. Low interest rates and [almost] free money to keep themselves in power.

    What a joke – clearly there isn’t going to be any REAL economic growth for years and years and years, as any investment gets sucked up into housing, rather than something that will actually create any wealth. To UK Government a currency crisis is far, far more preferable than any perceived drop in value of the housing.

    UK = Zombie economy.

    Even before clicking the link I knew this was going to be from CEBR. They’ve been saying the same drivel every year for the last five years.

  • They must work for the Daily Mail – “House prices soar by 16%”

    Propaganda at it’s very best.

  • Are we sure they’re just plucking figures out of the air? I mean, they’ve got a nice diagram of Britain. And they’ve correctly identified where Scotland is.

    To me, the strangest thing about this article is why a rise in prices of a “mere” 9.2% in Scotland over the next 4 years warrants a rain cloud (i.e. the message being “unwelcome, depressing, etc.”) but rises of 21 to 25.6% over the same period get big shiny suns! By presenting these predictions as a weather map, they are clearly saying “lower % price rises = clouds = bad/unwelcome”, higher % price rises = suns = good/welcome”. FOR WHO?!
