  3. They certainly are. http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=137588&view=findpost&p=2402725
  4. Not so, they're always manipulated. As I posted three weeks ago... http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=136069&view=findpost&p=2372895
  5. I just asked my accountant (FCA) to write a letter to the letting agent stating that he'd known me for years etc etc.
  6. My fear was that it could be sold, perhaps causing a run, with my money locked in for months. One could argue the toss until the cows come home, but I just wasn't happy to leave my money there and breathed a sigh of relief (that I hadn't locked my money in) when I heard the announcement today.
  7. Apparently not so with Northern Rock (Guernsey) Ltd, where my (Euro) account was.
  8. Too late. I ran last month, on the possibility of the guarantee being removed, rather than risk my money in a 'no-access' bond that matures in November.
  9. If they had been kissing, and caught live on camera doing it, Brown would have categorically denied it .
  10. BBC News have just reported that Damian McBride has issued a statement denying briefing against Darling.
  11. Brown's denial on a GMTV interview this morning... "......I would never instruct anyone to do anything o-o-o-other than support my Chancellor and I think Alistair will confirm that." It sounds like Darling may be about to retract .
  12. So it's the greed of the young that's the problem?
  13. Youngsters shouldn't have to pay for any pension other than their own. You pay your money into your pension scheme(s) during your working life and the resultant pot should take care of you in your old age. Trouble is, Governments, and some companies, spend all the money they collect as they get it and rely on future revenue to fund pension payments. A recipe for disaster in my opinion.
  14. I know what you mean. If I were ten years older I'd have got about 12%. 7+% was available from a few companies for age 56 in 2008, I shopped around and got the best deal I could. I'd struggle to get 6% today and I'm two years older with two years payouts in the bank.
  15. I moved my modest pot into cash funds in 2007 and subsequently cashed it all in two years ago, although I have a few more years before I get my state pension. I took the 25% tax free lump sum, which is currently earning just under 4% in a NR fixed rate bond and bought an annuity at 7.2% with the balance.
  16. That's ripe coming from a multi ID gold ramper....... endgame = azazel .
  17. It's NuLabour using public money for their election broadcasts .
  18. SM tends to rise on news that points to low interest rates, Sterling is falling on same expectation.
  19. I was watching his address, live on Bloomberg, and nearly choked on my coffee when he said that. A unbelievably overconfident statement from a man in his position . Any respect I may still have had for him evaporated in that instant.
