Well, yes, for once I agree with you Keith, but that ain't going to happen any time soon. 

And Adrian, I don't see why 'our generation' should feel guilty.  When I moved to London I lived in a grotty bedsit in Archway for years (no boyfriends allowed which didn't make life easy - run by Greek-Cypriots as a matter of fact) in order to save hard for a deposit for a flat - I had no rich parents to provide even a thousand or two.  The cost of a flat in those days -although not on the scale of today - was many times my income and it took an awful lot of work - after my full time job working in Central London I would hotfoot it up to Barnet to teach at evening class - in order to scrape the deposit together.  Of course I am not upset that prices have gone up but it is no fault of mine.  If anyone feels guilty towards the younger generation - sell up and give them the money, as many parents are already doing.   I don't mean this to sound like 'well in my day,', but there has to be a sense of perspective.  When I left university there was a recession and getting a job was very, very difficult, and when I did get a mortgage the interest rate was around 15%.
