Heartwarming human interest story

You're all too cynical here.

Heres some young go getters who have sorted their life out.

In case you are wondering, that ~300k mortgage, costing 800/m is an IO loan.

Wow. 300k to live in soon to be council slum in a town thats ~80min from Waterloo.

Catering too. That sector is solid as rock and pays really well....

Not so long ago this wouldn't have been remarkable, let alone newsworthy.

They are just kicking the young again saying look  - the reason you haven't got a house is because you are lazy.

(and don't have two inheritance windfalls as per the couple in the article)

They haven’t got a house though. It’s a flat and they have to sit in the kitchen

Sadly they didn't have quite enough money for a park home, and the remaining relatives were all looking too healthy to help anytime soon.

At that age you can make a big mistake and start again. Many did.

I agree, and that is one thing I like about the US, you can try and try again, people who try and fail are applauded, up to a point.

The problem is that those poor kids are following an old model of perceived success according to a benchmark set by their elders in different times- home ownership

Today's good advice would be to rent.

But they have been misled into making a mistake, and perhaps even misled by people that can't admit to themsleves that owning a home is not the be all and end all of being socially acceptable.

You don't need to own anything to be successful.

Yes, I thought those repayments were very low considering the size of the mortgage. 

Is the £60K gross or net? I must admit I didn't know cooking or slapping on makeup paid so well, I'm considering changing careers.
