Well flogging off property to foreigners mightn't be as easy in rebel roused Brexit but even so can they defy demographics?

I'll have to be honest, I don't understand the charts, but what are they saying?
My comment was simply that no government would do anything to stop individuals from acquiring multiple properties, even if that pushes their price above what the typical homebuyer could ever afford.

They seem to be making the point that house prices are correlated with the dependency ratio. It might be true but they are more than a little misleading, as all the vertical axes have been adjusted to make it look more obvious.

This month, the headline price growth gauge slipped from +7% to +1%, signalling prices were broadly flat over the period and representing the softest reading since early 2013. Nevertheless, the national figure conceals diverging trends across parts of the UK. Indeed, house prices remain quite firmly on an upward trend in some areas, led by Northern Ireland, the West Midlands and the South West.
By way of contrast, the net balance reading for central London remains negative with the pace of decline broadly matching that of the previous three months. Moreover, chartered surveyors are starting to report early signs of this flatter trend permeating outside the capital, as the price balance for the South East of England fell into negative territory, posting the weakest reading for this part of the country since 2011.

Plus they're wrong. The Ireland graph is 5 years out of date
