Nobody Move Or the House Prices Get Hurt!

They were really ramping up the propaganda yesterday (giving me raw material for this series for a whole week). This is clearly co-ordinated, by whom or what we might never find out.
From Sky News:
Bank of England governor Mark Carney has warned ministers that a "no-deal" Brexit could see house prices crash by a third, Sky sources say.
Briefing Theresa May and her top team in Downing Street, Mark Carney laid out three different scenarios the Bank believes could come to pass if Britain leaves the EU without a withdrawal agreement.
The worst case scenario would see Britain go into recession, a slump in the value of the pound and a crash in house prices.
Sky's political editor Faisal Islam said a source characterised the governor's comments as "not a prediction, a worst case scenario", adding Mr Carney's comments were received "respectfully" by those around the cabinet table.

It's well-tailored though.
Brexit = food prices will rise! That's bad!
Brexit = house prices will fall! That's bad!
Nope, the former is clearly bad (unless you're one of these obesity crisis wankers); the latter is A Very Good Thing Indeed.
