If house prices drop it will be because mortgages are harder to get or the UK goes into recession.
I has never been any different and it never will be.

Just an observation, but look at timing of posts in this forum.

It seems the more rational posts show up in the morning, except for precious few trolls spewing bollocks in hopes of winding up the rational types. I reckon they're probably on the other side of the world, alone late at night with the benefit of having consumed a few glasses of liquid confidence.

Then night falls (European time) and the ones who hate everything come out. I reckon they're the ones on this side of the world who've also had the benefit of liquid confidence and are now ready to proclaim "brexit is brexit" once again as an answer to everything.

And this sensationalist daily express article has what to do with that observation, Dicky boy?

Yes, I agree with that article (mostly). The May government doesn't know what they're doing. But I believe May does. She's in a paradox. Damned if she does, damned if she doesn't.

From your link:

Mr Tusk blamed “political correctness” for delays in closing Europe’s borders in 2015 which allowed more than a million into the continent unchecked, including ISIS jihadis who attacked Paris and Brussels killing 130 and 32 people respectively.
Paris attackers had EU passports

I thought most attacks are by home-grown jihadusts these days.

Much depends on your interpretation of "Homegrown" I suppose.

Somehow I don't think France and Belgium deliberately encourage these guys to go around blowing up and shooting down their own innocent citizens. :cool:
