  1. you dont pay VAT with an etfs. I have recently bought a load of PHPD etfs http://www.etfsecurities.com/msl/etfs_physical_palladium.asp i dont think there are many palladium coins around although the US is due to issue some soon.
  2. A couple of years ago i used to look at a website, I think it may have been the hometrack website. It gave the monthly change for each individual town in the UK for different types of dwelling. You could also see a graph of changes over a period of years. Does anybody know where this information can be found. I cant find it on the hometrack website.
  3. Celente has been running his world trends prediction service since 1980 so he has form. He is a gold bull like quite a few others such as Schiff, Chapman, Malone, Ron Paul, Turk, Faber and Keiser. There is even serious talk of $15,000 gold. There are quite a lot of independently minded gold bulls - but it is not an absolute certainty and it may be a very bumpy road.
  4. Joe Public = sheeple Scroungers = scapegoats Media = sycophants Bank chiefs = sociopaths There is a symbiotic relationship between these groups of people.
  5. Farm land and agricultural (aka soft) commodities in general should rocket - personally i have got a shedload of Baring Global Agriculture Fund. Also we may get El Nino this winter.
  6. The program explained that we are well and truely f*cked as we will be getting a perfect storm of peak oil, climate change, peak soil, water shortages, population increases and increased consumption of processed junk food. The whole concept of investing in property is an abomination as all the money poured into futile property investments should have gone into trying to secure resources for the world. We are doomed doomed doomed. Also having the credit crunch didnt do us any favours as if we didnt have enough problems already.
  7. It is most likely a significant factor behind explaining why the population of the UK has more than twice the European average incidence of mental health issues and personality disorders.
  8. Cant comment on Guernsey, but July and August are normally seasonal lows for gold prices as from the end of August, the Indian Gold jewellry buying festivals starts up in a big way and extend through to the new year. If ever buying gold, right now (August) is usually considered the best time of year. Most commentators are bullish on gold for both the short and long term but a minority of commentators are bearish. Silver has more potential growth than gold as the global economy recovers as it has industrial applications, but silver can be very volatile and while the chances of growth are very
  9. Ive got a shedload of Baring Global Agriculture fund which i had already chosen as a good long term play. But if El Nino happens, crop prices will spike soon and i could double my money in months.
  10. And the opportunities for parents to abuse their children are endless with 24/7 access to their children and the chances of conviction are very low as it is done behind closed doors.
  11. There are quite a few female paedophiles and nobody has a better opportunity to abuse children than the mother. only very few get convicted though. It makes a mockery of the scheme as most abuse is within the family unit.
  12. Oh really - try this for size http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jul/1...nge-environment As well as droughts, floods and other extreme events, the next few years are also likely to be the hottest on record, scientists say.In the UK, a Met Office spokesman said yesterday that the El Niño event was likely to cause a hot, dry summer following a warm June, but said it could have other unpredictable effects on weather in Britain and north-west Europe. "Much depends on how much the El Niño deepens in the next few months." "The last major El Niño in 1998 killed more than 2,000 people and cau
  13. You must have picked this up from my blog entry but i only put it up about a minute ago. Anyway i have loads piled into Baring Global Agriculture fund so i may personally be on a winner.
  14. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/worl...icle6695339.ece El Niño, the warming of the Pacific Ocean that creates chaos in global weather patterns, is on its way back, threatening droughts, floods, crop failure and social unrest. According to scientists at America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a new bout of El Niño is under way as the surface of tropical waters across the eastern Pacific has warmed roughly 1C (1.8F) above normal and is still rising. Further down, some 150 meters (500ft) below the surface, the waters are heating up — by around 4C (7.2F).
