Cameron clearly said that RENTS had fallen. Then, and this really is a joke, the press said that Downing Street had 'clarified' the situation by suggesting they had 'heard' of rents falling. Amazing. Imagine writing a school or college report and trying to say, 'It's true 'cos my mates said so.' But apparently, it's fine if you're the PM.
The Coalition is trying to run the country - and form policy - through media rumours and chatter. Of course rents aren't falling. They might as well suggest that Hobbits exist and that the moon is made of cheese, 'Because we heard it's true.' -E Mr Cameron.
