I think the probability of a 35% drop in the price of houses might be enough to put people off Brexit.

More bullshit from BBC......Carney gave them a 'what if' scenario. It suits the scare mongers who want a second vote. I would take all these experts views with a pinch of salt.......after all how many of us bought into low cost endowments......remember them....not only would they clear our mortgage but we would have enough extra to buy a race horse or speed boat😂😂

It's all going to be wonderful,  the Sun will shine every day, will only rain at night,  Bangladesh  and Haiti will strike great trade deals with the yUK, all foreigners will be sent home, GDP will increase at 10% per annum till 2030....
I'm not an expert so I'm probably correct in all the above ::)
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

The UK is close to signing trade deals with Rockall, Ballyhaunis and Glenamaddy.

Sealand must also be a likely one.

And Gortahork automatically comes with Glenamaddy.

Not at all. Brexiteer callers in to James O'Brien yesterday were pointing to this as an unexpected Brexit dividend for those struggling to get on the housing ladder!.

As we know in Ireland, the problem is that these people have lost their job or cannot get a loan so are not able to avail of the reduced price. Some people might benefit from it.

Would love to see the assumptions used. Neoliberalism is a shit system if you want to grow demand.

Property prices in north of England may stagnate or even reduce in the event of a hard Brexit, but in south of England there are not enough houses to meet demand. I honestly don't know how the ordinary 5/8 person/family does it. Property where I live sells in less than 2 weeks, and it's crazy money.

London prices will fall when interest rates go up as they always do

Headline writer taking liberties there. What the EU is proposing is electronic tagging of things crossing the Irish Sea, i.e. a particular way of implementing the backstop.

I couldn't get through the paywall, so could only see what was written about it on BBC, and the first few paragraphs of the article itself. I note it said about tracking shipping containers, but I assumed they meant on the back of trailers transporting them across border, but is actually just shipping itself? Thats good news.
