    however the rating agencies are about to downgrade our banks ratings making it more expensive to borrow.

    Banks are only partly through the deleveraging \ recapitalisation exercise.

    I'm a Corporation with £10 million pounds to deposit for a year. What rate of interest will you offer me?
    Never heard a one year (or three month, or five year) deposit called a wholesale mortgage before.

    Despite all this Bank of England flooding in I expect mortgage rates to shoot up.

    You also expected house prices to fall 50% by Christmas 2009, and then again by June 9th of this month. You also proudly piled into gold last Autumn, just before the price plunged.


    Let's be honest, you don't really understand economics, do you?

    To be fair property prices are artificially high, the only reason they haven't dropped is that we are into serious negative interest rate territory with qe. Cant defend him on the gold though, silly move.

    This one from 2008, is my personal favourite, where brit postulates with huge certainty about a 50% price crash by June 2012:

    She stopped singing in April 2009, when the house price crash ended.
