  1. It's well known to people on this site. I only hope that folks spread their money around a bit so that if one of their banks goes down they have another source of funds to keep them going for the 6 months it will take to get compensation.
  2. Pick some good UK companies / stocks. It's time to buy at these low PE's. Put together a diverse portfolio carefully and you can easily get 5%+ dividends per year.
  3. Most people who rely on relatively 'instant' access would still be left in a perilous state if they left their money there. From the FSCS …. How long will it take to process my investment claim? After a firm is declared in default, we'll aim to process your claim within six months of you submitting your application. Delays may occur, however, if your claim is particularly complex or if we're waiting on further information from third parties.
  4. I haven't thought this idea through but why not make employers pay for their employees transport to work? I used to work full time from home. You just need an employee who can produce the expected work output and a manager who doesn't care to micro-manage. Unfortunately I found that most managers are 'trained' managers and not really very good people leaders.
  5. The pricing precision amused me on this one, but alas unsold. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-66623059.html
  6. Well, I don't know why everyone isn't rushing in! I mean, in a few days time we're putting that price back up. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-75778481.html
  7. Don't go beyond 25 years. That sort of action is part of the reason prices are so stupid now. Before that: Cancel the gym membership Stop visiting coffee houses Drop the mobile contract Stop buying labelled clothes (apart from shoes) Downgrade the motor Cancel the ski holiday Switch to Aldi and Lidl Cancel Sky Movies and Sports Cut out smoking, alcohol, drugs, gambling and women You'll soon be able to afford a 10/15 year mortgage!
  8. Did it really say that because now it just says falling? Lol.
  9. "Track your properties on your dashboard to see how they perform - independent valuations happen every six months. If the market rises, watch your investment grow." Pretty illiquid too I bet.
  10. EPIC! The only problem is that I don't bother with links. What do YOU think?
  11. It is only 44% of our exports that go to the EU. There is no need to exaggerate. And I'd guess that at least 90% of those exports would continue (Coldplay, Benny Hill, Mr Bean, etc) in the same way that we would continue to buy EU goods. So, yeah, maybe we lose 4.4% of our exports. I could see that being made up with freer trade with the RoW. I'm not scared. I'm confident. You think we are run down? Have you been to Italy recently?
