    Who'd have thought it? Well I never....

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Just to add to the socialist hypocrisy, the grauniad are allegedly balls deep in offshore themselves.

    Most of those so-called "property empires" seem to be little more than invidual (albeit expensive) properties.

    There were very few cases of one person hoovering up whole streets or properties and estates all over the country.

    So on the evidence it presents, the article's tone seems rather hysterical to say the least.
