Metropolis is well aware that the property industry loves to indulge in the festive party season, so it wasn’t surprised to read the ‘research’ that dropped into its mailbox this week declaring: “Property professionals admit they plan to go wild at Xmas do”.

The findings said that 20% of workers in the sector are sure they will do something they will regret in the morning and 25% of you are “preparing to declare their love for a colleague” - suggesting 5% of you expect this move will be successful. At least you can take comfort from the finding that 80% reckon they’ll regret nothing.

Nah, we’re not buying it either.
