The tide could be turning

Why Help To Buy could be bad politics as well as bad economics

Osborne hopes "everyone will be happy as property values go up" but a new poll shows that 66% of the public don't want prices to rise. Polls are complex and we will have to see how that is seen in the light of swing voters, but interesting. Are people fed up with the great house price inflation. Are we seeing a Black Swan in public opinion and HPC heresy becoming the new dogma.

  • Pete,
    I admit I’m amazed. From my reading of the Mail on-line, I thought all their greying readers wanted house prices to rise!

    “Are people fed up with the great house price inflation”.

    I don’t think so. They are looking forward to making house prices the subject of their dinner parties and coffee mornings once again.

  • I wrote to my local conservative mp about this. Complaining it would devalue my deposit and reward the people who spend all there money and cant save. I also complained about low interest rates on my savings and complained that major reason why we have house shortage is the mass un controlled imigration from eastern europe.

    The first to he fobbed me off the second he agreed with me and said he was trying to do something about it.

  • Good to see some sense!
    i have a house though i’m paying a mortgage.
    If house prices go up how will my children buy a house?
    I believe these sentiments are better understood by the public than before.

  • Perhaps the property preeners have realised that their kids or grandkids are stuffed for the foreseeable future.

  • Greying? Don’t be daft the consumers of Mail Online are entirely different from the blue rinses who get it through the letterbox. They are mainly air-headed celebrity freaks who can’t wait for the next copy of Heat – the pre-mumsnet crowd.
