    He's slightly worse than finding a discoloured lump on your ball.

    Whenever his ultimate demise occurs, it will be one of the most eagerly anticipated and ethusiastically supported falls from grace in Irish public life!!!

    He is a complete twat but is the poster boy for the Celtic Tiger FF philosophy.
    He also writes in the worse Sunday broadsheet rag in the country.

    And no he is not funny- he is deceptive.

    The property market will reach bottom at some time

    That time is close to now : so long as the recession doesn't deepen

    At worst it may fall 20% more

    That's nothing like the current risk with equities (which is his main thesis)

    So the article isn't that unreasonable

    In general you should take BOC with a grain of salt and I'm not sure why some people get so fussed up about him

    "Yawn , am I alive yet ?"

    You are far too blasé about the property crash- only another 20%!
    Yes it is not as bad as equities but people don’t have €200-€400k invested in shares.

    BoC is a complete cretin.
    The Sindo magazine that he edits has a big responsibility about promoting waste in Irish life and striving to fulfil material needs and the Life parties are surely hotbeds for all sorts of substance abuse.

    I wish nothing but bad things on him.
