Alistair Darling

Listening this morning to Alistair Darling on the Today programme was very interesting - he talked through at length the reasons why Northern Rock are in their current position.

As I said on Saturday, the banks have no idea who has been exposed to what degree, in terms of bad debt, creating an environment of mistrust between banks, thereby forcing up interest rates.

What Alistair Darling failed to mention however, was what impact this will have on the UK housing market, not a word - now why would that be?

I am fed up with people complaining about my photos on my web site. Today I sat through a nightmareish two and a half hour photo session. I would rather crash the site than have to go through that again! So beware!!

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel as though they are being shouted at, sternly, when they read Melanie Phillips? It's like being assaulted by a tabloid. Less than a paragraph in I tend to shriek,  jump back and drop the paper; I feel my pulse subside as I turn the page - that woman really has serious atittude!

Conservative Home have launched a new web site today:

If the BBC won't expose the truth about Gordon Brown, they will!

"...does anyone else feel as though they are being shouted at, sternly, when they read Melanie Phillips?" I saw today's piece on the subject of Northern Rock, debt, and the attitudes of the 'must have it now' generation. She certainly writes with a certain zeal, but I found myself agreeing with everything she said. Rather like the folk who appear on the 'Grumpy Old Men' series, she knows she is saying things that should be blatantly obvious to everyone, but few take any notice. Maybe a bit of stern shouting is what's needed to encourage more people to think about the underlying message. Let's face it, the Government is presiding over an economy that has its foundations based on extreme levels of debt - both personal and public, so we can hardly expect them to do much about the situation, can we?

If it makes you feel any better, I have the same reaction when I read the rubbish spouting from Polly Toynbee.

It's not what Melanie writes that I object to - everything she writes is sound - it's the way she tells it, she frightens me!!
