Know this has been done but I am fed up people who are in the media being able to claim we are all to blame for the money situation in this country - a lot of us are NOT, we are NOT we didn't borrow money even though we were told we would have a bad credit rating as we don't have any evidence of being able to repay any kind of loan, we did not live beyond our means and still do not, I could go on but what's the point?

thanks rant over brew

I was cringing until she just gave Harriet some stick about secret deals. She seems very nervous!

I got a 100 percent mortgage at a young age because the mortgage was cheaper than rent and I was straight out of uni so no deposit. Guess what - I paid every month without fail and worked up some equity as I went on. Still don't get why they are such an awful idea?

Well she also thinks that parents who can afford to send their kids to private school are saviours of the state school system because it just wouldn't cope if all those kids were sent to state school instead.


So probably best to not pay her much attention.

I thought Harriet Harmen called Jeremy Hunt Jeremy Cunt earlier! Rewound to double check, and it's pretty close. grin

She's clueless Tory, what did you expect?

She's a posh estate agent FFS, with a sideline in making little christmas decorations out of felt and sequins. She may have an opinion but no one should give any credence to it.

banana, I definately heard her say `cunt` not `hunt`, how did no one pick up on it, I thought the panel would at least snigger [disapointed]

Kirstie is an Hon, her father is a Baron or somesuch so I doubt she had to struggle on a 100% mortgage. I didn't see it but she gets on my tits.

Jeremy Hunt as Cunt first happened live on The Today Programme, James Naughtie I think, it was a big story

She is loaded and has never lived in the real world so how can she know what it's like for the rest of us. We had a 100% mortgage, lost £30k in value when the recession hit and are just getting out of negative equity now. We never took out beyond what we could afford. In fact we were told we could borrow over twice what our mortgage was actually for. I wish they still existed as then we would be able to move.

I was cringing with a capital C at Coogan. Omg he was dreadful.
