I mean, clearly, the idea of inviting on a guest who owns a bunch of lapdancing clubs, and a guest who spent vast numbers of column inches drooling over the home secretary's tits when the home sec was Jackie Ashley was to celebrate International Women's Day in a suitable manner.

I really want to force Peter Stringfellow to read that article on things rich people should stop saying that I linked to this morning. Because, to me, the idea that a 2 million pound house might not be a mansion is utterly ridiculous.

Can't wait for Quentin Twat to turn up and mansplain what's happened this week to those of us to stupid and/or female to have understood...

Still, it's nice to see Diane back, and Michael seems much more comfortable with her on the sofa.

Yeah, I live in a very posh bit of London and a totally ordinary 3 bed house won't give you much change from a £750,000. But then, I also earn at least ten grand a year more than I would if I was working in the North West or East Midlands. So if I could afford a £2 million house, I could probably afford a spot of extra taxation.

A good point, well made. It was more a comment on the house prices and how ridiculously wealthy you have to be to even consider buying any kind of propertyEven if I clubbed together with friends I'd be looking at a 10x salary mortgage.

With luck, one effect of a mansion tax (as well as the changes to housing benefit at the bottom end and the building of new social housing) will be that house prices will fall relative to income.
