The BBC* have declared that house prices are rising exponentially in university towns. Disaster! Now I will be certain to end up in a cardboard box, overqualified and underfed.
Oh wait, good news. Not all towns are afflicted, in fact some of the top 20 aren't affected in the slightest. Like London, Oxford, Guilford and Warwick…
Erm, would that be the Warwick which has no university in it?
Yes, that Warwick. This BBC article had once again managed to get confused by the cunning Warwick plan to remain hidden from view, safe from prying eyes and able to extort money from its pisshead students at will. Though obviously you'd expect better from our national station.
One day later.
Oddly the BBC article now carries no mention of Warwick and its prices. Do you think someone told them somthing?
*Memo to self, get TV license.
