[Posted by Prof Henry G. Overman] As the housing crisis continues, politicians continue to say silly things about housing. Here's a round up of three efforts from the middle of last year. I was reminded of this by Harriet Harman on the Today Programme this morning. Talking about improving housing affordability she was asked if she would like to see housing prices fall. This is, of course, a tricky question for a British politician - and she dodged it by saying that house price falls would be bad but that Labour were committed to increasing supply and improving affordability.
