  1. The London Bullion Market Association has been promising to publish volumes of gold traded, so we can really get closer to establishing how big the Over The Counter gold trades are, for an age. If you remember right this was supposed to be sometime earlier this year. Well, we have to wait a while more..._ http://www.lbma.org.uk/_blog/lbma_media_centre/post/lbma-announce-launch-date-for-publication-of-marketdata/

    "Due to the unknown storage conditions of the small bottle found in the house of Mr Rowley and the fact that the environmental samples analysed in relation to the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal and Mr Nicholas Bailey were exposed to the environment and moisture, the impurity profiles of the samples available to the OPCW do not make it possible to draw conclusions as to whether the samples are from the same synthesis batch" So, yet more lack of conclusive evidence for the UK governments pantomime over Russia's novichok programme..._ https://opcw.org/fileadmin/OPCW/S_series/2018/en/s-1671-2018_e_.pdf

    What a load of rubbish

    An interesting piece appeared on WUWT, yes, that devils site for denialistas, which gives what I consider are some worthwhile suggestions on what to do with hydrocarbon waste. Why those who are convinced that the planet is doomed jump up and down at the mention of incineration to power, or even plain old incineration, is beyond me. With todays technology, the air that comes out of the chimney is far less polluted than the air it is released in to. Keep calm and tidy up..._ https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/08/28/letter-those-oceans-of-plastic-look-at-the-sources-first/
  4. Still pushing the gatagoons nonsense I see. If Russia bought on the world markets, the gold would be delivered. The ridiculous part of your post is hinting that there is no gold to deliver, if Russia bought on the open market it would help raise the price, same as demand ever does, that's all. But were your comment goes way off the radar, is failing to acknowledge that they can't buy easily on the world market. Do you not comprehend how the sanctions on Russia operate. Anyway, I hope you got the GCSE results you wanted today..._

    What a load of rubbish

    Who decides what gets classed as "single use" plastic? What defines "single use"? It may seem a sensible suggestion, but what exactly is meant by the term? I'm planting brassicas in the garden. They are inside a plastic collar made from pop bottles that have had the tops and bottoms cut off. This protects them from pigeons, and means the slug pellets can be placed next to the new shoots.Does this make them a piece of 'multi use' plastic? Used plastic is just rubbish.....recycle, incinerate, or put in a hole in the ground. Keep calm and tidy up..._

    The plastic problem is a litter problem. It just needs addressing and sorting. Many animals do die as a result of rubbish dumping, both on land and sea, it is not a planetary catastrophe in the making. If we all swallowed a lego brick a day for the rest of our lives, the only consequence would be funny shapes in our poo. This is another example of eco catastrophists crying wolf, or should that be polar bear. Calm down and tidy up..._

    We have accumulated an assortment of toys for grandchildren when they stay over, many made from plastic. It causes no emergency calls to Salisbury hospital when the babies chew on their (plastic) teething rings either. Plastic is not toxic, it is not pollution, it is not poisonous......it's a litter problem that needs tidying up..._

    Plastic is not poisonous, it is not toxic, neither is it a source of pollution, it is litter , that's all. Keep calm and tidy up..._

    Some posters elsewhere are doing just that. The worst argument was that it was done by NHS staff in the hospital. Conspiracy nutters, don't you just love 'm. Dont forget, Novichoks translates as 'newcomers' it was a large group of experimental agents. All of them are organophosphates, the same group that includes pesticides. Wrongly handled they are a charming group of chemical compounds..._ https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/07/130718-organophosphates-pesticides-indian-food-poisoning/

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44727191 "BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera said that because the highest concentration of Novichok was found on the couple's hands, police believe the item they handled could be a container or receptacle that was used to carry the nerve agent." OK, just me being picky......where is the container? what is the receptacle? Keep calm, and carry on without the evidence..._

    Well, it seems that 'Novichok Day is the new Groundhog Day'......anyway, who gains here? This article speaks for me..._ https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jul/05/novichok-wiltshire-poisoning-russia-putin-world-cup
  13. It is often asked on this thread about buying gold in Dubai. I’ve only passed comment on the coins and bars, which I always thought expensive, and still do. Have never really bothered to check out the jewellery. On this trip we bought a gold necklace. After playing with my abacus it seems good value. Rounding off the figures it came in at £280, with a scrap value of £220. So once the necklace has reached its BBE date, it will have cost £60 for a nicely worked piece of jewellery..._

    I was not here in 2003 when HPC started, so I wasn’t posting when Iraq was visited in the same year by hunting parties after WMD. Perhaps some of you were then,so I suspect the same I’ll informed tosh was being posted then, as it is now. Here we are, WMD2........shall we invade Russia to search for secret stockpiles of chemical WMD’s. Then what. Time to be responsible and acknowledge, that just like before, the government is taking you all up the garden path. Even the remnants of New Labour seem to be lining up behind John McDonnell in a howling match against the honourable stand taken by Corbyn. So , be happy. I shan’t post on this thread again , but I suspect that Erroll will continue to link to Craig Murray’s blog. One of the consistently honourable and accurate blogs out there..._

    I missed the distinction between 'nerve agent poisoning' and 'significant poisoning' Not as clear as I would like it, but certainly not the same as what Comrade Basher Boris is implying. +1 The Times published a letter from Stephen Davies (Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust) on the 16th March. ‘Sir, further to your report (‘Poison Exposure Leaves Nearly 40 needing Treatment’), may I clarify that no patients have experienced symptoms of nerve agent poisoning in Salisbury and there have only ever been three patients with significant poisoning. Several people have attended the emergency department concerned that they may have been exposed. None has had symptoms of poisoning and none has needed treatment. Any blood tests performed have shown no abnormality. No member of the public has been contaminated by the agent involved.’
