Property prices, particularly in London and the south-east are completely out of control, and have been for years. Osborne's economic policies seem determined to keep the whole dodgy scheme running despite the fact that more and more people are being priced out of the market. What's interesting about the London property bubble is that it is increasingly fueled by foreign banks and investors. Meaning that exposure to its eventual collapse is distributed. Quick: everybody buy a second home now!
When I first moved to Spain, nearly 10 years ago, I knew relatively little about the political parties on offer here.
