Morning both, first of all Andrew I haven't said they are wrong it is opinion based on a very narrow view and almost without doubt fuelled by a cooling of the market, pressure to perform and no matter what he or his ex firm does sales aren't going to happen. The natural contraction of the market has nothing at all to do with Rightmove or OTM but might well have something to do with Zoopla. (something I can demonstrate) I do not disagree about the one other portal rule and attracted quite a lot of personal flak for saying so. The reason I disagree with it is because the portal element of the AM project is being given an artificial lead and artificial support that would not be tolerated if is was a stand alone commercial product. I am guessing you would support the affinity group if you were allowed to opt out of OTM and it's restrictions. COAR (Central office area rep) is not going to expand significantly, it is flawed Agency thinking that is popular because some big money and big names is being poured into it and it is a trending subject for lazy journalists or journalists schmoozing wealthy high profile investors. It is a vulnerable business model that can be controlled with intelligent commercial thinking. ( A point I have quietly proved) Online traditional agency is likely to expand and flourish. Niche or highly focused local agency can work and can compete. It is important to recognised the difference between those two forms of online agency. The thing about leaving portals, that's a red herring, that is spin fed to you by portal reps. It is a fear retention strategy. Please can we carry on tomorrow? I have promised to have a day away from the keyboard!

The very first thing that has to be done in my opinion is to investigate some of the cavalier abuses of position that were evident in the run up to the election. Stella Creasy? what is all that about? I have tried to rationalise her behaviour and the closest analogy I can come up with is that of an angry aggrieved 2nd year student who is mad at everyone because her digs are a bit too far out of town, the letting agent is ripping her off and she has to pay HOW MUCH! The whole malcontent, 'power to the people' Wolfie Smith bit might work (just) for Russell Brand but it hardly befitting of an MP. How and why such behaviour is tolerated probably only the parliamentary ombudsman can explain Shelter? It is a pity the LAT archive is so hard to access now, I have been banging on about their dubious data manipulations for years- quite how S21 retaliatory eviction can go from 1000 cases reported by CLG to 11,000 reported by Shelter on prime time Telly just ahead of the election is beyond me and all a bit suspect. IMO Shelter have managed t cross the lobbying guidelines set out by the Charity commission it would probably make an interesting turn of events to see how secure their position is now Ed Miliband hasn’t won the election and is no longer well placed to protect the party faithful lobby group Shelter has become. I am not saying tenants rights should be ignored or dismissed, I can demonstrate a solid 21 year history of trying to make the PRS better for everyone, the views of Generation Rent and Tenants voice should be heard but that become so difficult when the likes of Creasy and Shelter are drowning out debate with their own agendas and crusades. What we need is someone with a bit more of a stake in the industry to think none of this really adds up to the way our industry ought to be governed.
