1. HPC looney agrees with PeeBee! What!
2. Or is it, IT is annoyed the prices were so high, circa 200K a plot, no bargins there then!
3. Worry not HPC IT, there will be a genuine reason behind the PR story, like they sold commercial stuff as well perhaps?

As PeeBee says it's a bit sus. I'm sure there were plenty of people watching their friends and relatives bid included in that figure. I reckon a fair few sellers wanting to see their property. 200 Homes under the Hammer TV crew, 500 of their groupies and a few people just interested in how auctions go.

2000 BIDDERS??

I think not. Spectators; vultures - call them what you like but if two thousand different hands went up on the day I will publicly eat a hat. ANY hat!
