WHAT you’ve been say­ing on our Face­book page:

ONS fig­ures re­veals prop­erty price boom in Rossendale (‘House price rise is fifth fastest in UK’, Novem­ber 30):

Si­mon Topps: Don’t worry house buy­ers, Brexit will bring them back down again for at least 4-5 years.

Chris Daniel: It doesn’t re­ally mat­ter though be­cause when it comes to mov­ing, every­one else’s has gone up by the same amount.

Ric Kenyon: The only peo­ple to re­ally ben­e­fit are the older gen­er­a­tion ‘down­siz­ing’ and in­vestors, the real losers are yet again first time buy­ers

Donna Waite: Too many es­tate agents bump­ing the prices up to win clients busi­ness. The houses aren’t worth it! But if peo­ple want to pay it they will!

MC Auty: Let’s hope mine booms back up the price I paid 11 years ago!

Jo War­wick: Maybe be­cause build­ing quo­tas are only at 50% of de­mand ..

Jimmy Ainsworth: It’s al­right, I’m sure Jake’s en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port for a no-deal Brexit will take house prices down a peg or two. As well as cre­ate queues for black mar­ket in­sulin sup­plies, but you can’t have it all, eh?

COUN­CIL lead­ers and min­is­ters have been briefed about plans for a rail link to the Val­ley (‘Rail link fight is taken to West­min­ster’, Novem­ber 30):

Andy Kyme: Any­one know what the ELR con­cerns are? Pre­sum­ably they’ll lose loads of tourist money?

Rick Woodall: Maybe we should have Bri­tain’s only com­mer­cial steam rail­way lol

Jake Atkin­son: I can’t see how this could work with the ELR main­tain­ing op­er­a­tions at the cur­rent lev­els. They are op­er­at­ing lo­cos vir­tu­ally 365 days a year. Joe Ea­ton: Fan­tas­tic news! Jools Richard­son: Fingers crossed. It re­ally needs to hap­pen.

Emma O’Con­nor: I’d pay for it to be done
