Once upon a time, when Australians called a spade a spade, we’d call spivs on the racecourse ‘urgers’ and ‘touts’.
But dress them up these days in a suit and they’ve magically become ‘financial analysts’ to entrap people into the overdone real estate market as it trembles on the brink atop a 12 year-old bubble.
And, of course, an urger or tout labels anyone suggesting Australian real estate has been done to a crisp ‘a doomsayer’. [SIGH!]
There are many more such persons, of course, but please, no more urging and touting, guys. This is serious!
