"UK property is such a rigged market" - and gold isn't (?), apart from the times that the Fed and the big banks on its coat-tail use naked shorts to prevent its rising too high against the dollar. If one market is rigged to go up and the other is rigged to go down then yes, one will look expensive against the other.
