  1. Who has my £10k of loan, credit card and overdraft debt, can I ask if they are interested in taking my share of the national debt? Remember folks debt = wealth these days.
  2. This graph shows how the UK's budget deficit has fluctuated as a percentage of the country's economic output (GDP)
  3. Not yet but he is willing to throw the next 50 years tax take at it in an attempt to do so.
  4. I wouldn't be keen on a safety deposit box after the police opened thousands of boxes then assumed the contents of each box to be the result of criminal activities, putting the burden, cost and time of proving otherwise on the vast majority of honest citizens storing items in them. But then again I am a bit of a TFHer. Police 'took wife's £100,000 jewels' in safe deposit raid http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1024905/On-safe-deposit-The-suitcases-gold-dust-masterpieces-30m-cash-discovered-police-raids.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/2066470/Safety-deposit-box-raids-yield-1bn-of-drugs-cash-and-guns.html http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=128543&st=0 Depending on your own feelings and how much risk you are happy to take you can easily conceal gold coins in your house or in a safe hidden from view in your house. Safe or secondhand shotgun cabinet fixed in the loft then buried under junk and hidden from view. In cupboards, draws, behind bath or shower tray or even sewn in to the lining of curtains. But then you risk armed criminals if they get wind of you buying gold / silver taking it from you or your family by force or if someone knows you have purchased and fitted an insurance approved safe and added insurance cover to your stash. Depending on how much you intend to spend and your personal risk aversion / TFH you could keep some secure and discreetly at home and some in a deposit box perhaps?
  5. I am not shocked, I should be but such control freakery is sadly par for the New Labour course.
  6. Would the post not be shipped from Guernsey to England if flights are grounded for any length of time?
  7. He appears to have not posted on GEI for a long time.
  8. I have always fancied living on a boat on a river or canal.
  9. Do any of the prospective chancellors have a believable plan for reducing the deficit and bringing the spiraling national debt and interest payments under control? A plan that doesn't include the hilariously optimistic figures for growth Mr Darling insulted us with in his budget and real spending cuts rather than the paltry £6 billion you have squabbled over thus far? One way of tackling the deficit / debt would be to remove some or all of the props currently being used to hold up the housing market? Shared equity scams, government loans to buy unaffordable housing, housing benefit payments, paying the interest on the mortgages of the feckless?
