Unless given any evidence to the contrary, I'm going to assume that our glorious leader has indeed saved the world; and that the economic powerhouse of UK PLC he's created has started firing on all cylinders again.

Would this 2012 doomsday scenario have something to do with IPv4 addresses running out about then?

(after a preceding run on IPv4 allocation requests, causing general panic)

One man's doom is another man's ticket to ride the new bubble to incredible wealth.

You have to hand it to New Labour. First they make you rich on the property bubble and then they print money and cause a bubble in everything else and you just pile in and make another fortune.

Rising house prices don't make you rich though, do they? It makes houses more expensive.

It does when you buy them, they double in value and you sell them.

The difference is called profit and you can go out and spend it.

Not your own house, but the ones you bought when there was a massive global credit boom and house prices were rising 15% per month.

Don't tell me you didn't buy and sell property over the last ten or fifteen years?

Yeah, rising house prices are bad news if you want a bigger house or new house. Unless you have n houses when houses have risen n times. The more house prices rise, the more houses you need to move up. Boomed.

OY! Keep your thieving eyes off this comfy spot under a bridge. It's all I've got left since I was evicted by DP's BTL sharks!
