Opinion: Let’s stop pussyfooting over property prices

According to a report published by Shelter this week, if the price of an oven ready chicken had risen as fast as the price of the average house since 1971, it would cost £51.18.

    Well done, Tessa - when so many of our so-called environmentalist members buckled to George Osborne's will.
