So Gordon Brown is going to try to buy his way out of trouble by trying to support the housing market.

Has anyone else been struck by how closely the announcement of bribes for first-time buyers followed on the from the survey that nurses and teachers couldn't get on the bottom of the housing ladder?

Assuming it's not a coincidence, either Gordon Brown is making up policy on the fly or Bank of Scotland (which did the survey) is in his pocket. I wonder which it is?
