  1. I'd smack him in the mouth for conning me into believing he and his rabble were Conservatives. Also for faking house prices, the economy and interest rates, robbing my savings. For supporting the indebted and destroying the prudent. He is a fake, just like the rest of the UK. Fake economy, fake recovery, fake politics, fake job titles, fake education, fake industries, fake money in circulation, fake heath service, fake multicultural society (we have voluntary apartheid), etc, etc. Rename from Great Britain to Fake Britain.
  2. On my Google News page, there were 6 incidents of BBC reports on Balls and what he said, and singular reports from the newspapers and other news outlets. Don't the BBC realise yet that we now know they are just the party political broadcast station for Labour?
  3. HSBC would only go down if the world economic system failed.
  4. Have you asked the treasury. Their reply would be interesting. I never understood why we paid 12bn for an NHS computer system that never worked. A simple data base system, with the GP consultant rooms and hospitals littered with cheap computers as not much computer power would be required, the connection system is in place called the internet, and a server farm to store the info. I could have done the lot for 500 million. Where did the other 11.5 bn go?
  5. I'm talking about using savings, so have paid income tax on it already. There will be no more tax to pay, only on interest above the ISA threshold. Nothing is guaranteed, but looking at the figures for the past few years, the figures look reasonable. After all, the insurance companies are paying out a similar percentage for annuities which would tend to back-up the likely performance of a draw-down pension. And like I said, it is a long term thing. So if all goes according to plan, it will be miles better than the high street,
  6. My financial adviser chappy who deals with my draw down pension tells me you can put spare cash into managed ISAs. His firm will invest the funds and you only pay tax on any profits above the ISA tax threshold (about 11,500 GBP total in savings). Also, they are flexible and you can draw funds out at any time. He reckoned, after their fees, you can make about 7%. This is probably long term though, and probably a minimum of 3-5 years.
  7. A real Conservative who served in a real Conservative government. Like I have been saying for some time now, this present bunch are not Conservatives. The party has disappeared. It would have been interesting to see how the economy was managed if Thatcher had become PM for the first time in 2010 and we had a real Conservative government since then.
  8. Many thanks. I moved them away from the exchange onto a computer based wallet, and have removed the dat file which is backed-up many times on SDHC cards. I'm thinking this is just as secure as paper wallets. Any thoughts?
  9. Many thanks, well done. I followed what you did some months ago so can verify your procedure is as good as it gets. I believe mtgox is difficult to deal with as it can take weeks for us in the Western Hemisphere to get funds out. I think they are mainly for the Eastern Hemisphere. I was pleased with HSBC who got the money to BitStamp the next day. When making a paper wallet, do you have to move your Bitcoins? Is there a transaction involved? I was a bit reluctant to do this if it is the case. I'd like to see a step by step list of instructions as I don't fully understand the tutorial on the web. Cheers.
  10. Listened to what the woman panellist was saying and switched off half way through her ramblings. Who the hell are these people, they haven't got a clue? It annoyed me that when Hunt was speaking, the camera was on the Labour guy shaking his head, so it tended to negate what Hunt was saying. I think this is a ploy by the BBC to minimise the effect of the Tory comment.
  11. Presently at 510 USD/BTC, where it was only 48 hours ago. The price shot up as the market was over excited at the FED's optimistic remarks at a congressional hearing, saying it was legal and had a promising future (no signs of the FED being 'difficult' as everyone was expecting).
  12. Tried to listen to all the waffle and mumbling and drifted into a coma. He comes out with a load of populist C r a p. He said as house prices go up, people tend to spend more. And talked about encouraging people to get more credit. I compare him to Max Keiser. Max is just totally understandable, easy to listen too and it all sounds like logic. Totally different and refreshing. Carney was not addressing the issues realistically. Just a load of political rubbish. He now has a reputation with me as just moving the goal posts to suit. I thought the questions fired at him all contained an irony and doubting his economic abilities. Just another highly paid politician to put up with. How disappointing our country's management are.
