  • A good article – their mag is worth a read too. This is what happens when asset markets are artificially manipulated.

    Cameron just wants to get elected, supported by his top media friends – like Rebecca. If she said it was 2014 would you believe her? Ed just wants to make the Labour party look electable.

    Most of the electoral seats stay the same for decades. Only a few (marginals) in the middle make any movement. Once in the house, you just nod your head and follow the leader. Simples.

    Which brings me back to the bubble being created. It’s been mentioned on this site SOooo many times.

    Media articles applaud rising House Prices. This is not consistent with their journos moaning when the City of London puts up parking charges or taxi fares rise, etc. Has anyone else noticed?

    If companies weren’t zombie they should be looking at cheap areas to relocate

  • What about cheaper salaries then….with the speed of broadband and cheaper costs including rent…
    Companies should be running from London

    Why aren’t they?….is it not trendy?

    London is far worse a city than 10-15 years ago believe me
