My Big Fat Property Fortune, ITV1

by | Apr 17, 2007 | All, Reviews

Did we like it?

This catalogue of smug gits who’ve cashed in on the property boom was distasteful enough, but to cap it all, narrator Craig Kelly rounded off his masturbatory euphoria by claiming these were uplifting stories. Not for those who can’t afford a home they’re not. Not for first-time buyers, teachers, nurses, social workers, Joe Bloggs and so on.

What was good about it?

• It provided a chance to seethe with rage – and we like a seethe every now and again.

What was bad about it?

• Contributors such as Judith Wilson (owns 700 buy-to-let homes in Kent, worth more than £160m), Leslie Allen-Vercoe (owns a monstrous mansion in Surrey featuring five swimming pools and not a hint of good taste); and Edward Davenport (screwed the desperate people of Sierra Leone out of a fortune by snapping up their high commission for £50,000)
