    The Pound

    He's Canadian not British. So in essence why care about British people when he can just go home at a wim. His allegiance would not be to the UK, I just don't understand why have a non British born in such an influential position. Having also worked for the GS as well. Just does not add up. Meddles in our politics far too much. Something doesn't add up....Then again look at the mess he left Canada in. Maybe he's just crap at his job...

    The Pound

    Today is the day Dr Carney earns his huge tax payers lump gestured to him... If Sterling tanks he better know what's up hey.. Interesting times ahead....Will he support everything valued locally in pounds. Or will he let our currency slip. We all become globally poorer... Odd times. A Canadian holding the purse strings of the UK...
  3. Just dropped off a cliff... Calling Dr Carney....1.2491
  4. The debt will never be repaid, not and never at current P/E ratio's. So the illusive wealth will always be illusive.
  5. Timothy Maxwell "Max" Keiser mada an interesting observation today about our dear masters at the Central Bank... Quote" Print money to jack up asset prices only to leave the majority scrambling around looking for the odd crumb" I know it's about the long end of the yield curve, but he has made a very good point regarding where we are at in this cycle. What next. Like he says" when you slay all the customers then where next".... Mythical wealth which bears no resemblance to real values relative to our own each individual GDP. Odd times we live in.
  6. Not directed at you Winkie. Just quoting Australia. If you. Any posters on here. Were dual passport holders. Oz UK so every Oz benefit you could wish for. But only the flight fare on the hip. Would you go to Oz post 50 no family here in the UK. Just wondering.
  7. Not sure whether it's wage or imports but things are on the up. Carvery near Manchester, £6.50 this time last year. £7 two weeks ago, £7.50 last week, £8 today. That's some price increase in two weeks. Might be the weak pound or local wage push inflation. Me thinks the consumer will start to tighten their belts. Usually busy but quieter today.
  8. Cheers Buddy, I'll look into that one... Can you disable per site or is it across the board...If its across the board, .i.e all sites that's a real ball ache for me.
  9. The main problem is the video adverts are costing me money. I used to read the forum very often, looking for thread updates every hour on my mobile smart phone. I only get a few gig a month which I pay for; so when i come on here, whether logged in or not. The video ads are using up my mobile data like crazy. It's like watching YouTube on every visit. So now I hardly visit, the forum has become unusable for anyone who uses a smart phone to view it and also has a set amount of internet data to use every month. Poster ads, okay I get that, but five minute video's. Ad blocker slows down my bandwidth too much on my smart phone. This was a great site in it's hey day, I know I was one of the first members, 2004 was the year I joined. But it's losing some of it's best posters to other forums. So watering down the quality of debate. Mods, get rid of the video's before this site becomes just a forum of little quality and no debate. That's my two penneth....I kept it nice.

    I can't make sense of anything the Bank of England does or says. The MPC is pointless. I think their job is to somehow keep justifying negative interest rates. Everyone swallows it. Rinse and repeat. Society is falling apart.

    Pension time bomb

    Novel idea. Drawdown your pension pot between 62 and 66. Buy gold sovereigns. Post 66, as cash is required, pop down to the local pawn shop, sell on each sovereign for cash. Having £40k in gold tucked away somewhere might be a worry though.
