No one forced anyone to borrow anythingThis is totally untrue. The buccaneer bankers and builders were far more culpable than any private individual trying to buy a house. Yet
Fianna Fail forced them and the rest of us to bail them out. Still you blame only the private individuals.
If people borrowed too much it was entirely their own fault.
Any that's what pushed up property prices - too many greedy bastards over borrowing to try to make a killing. That's why builders built more and more of them. It the demand wasn't there they wouldn't have built them.
