Doh...have Been Helping Gordon All This Time.

Recommended Posts

Whilst having premium bonds make up part of my STR portfolio I've been doing a bit of background reading into how the rates of national savings are calculated and to my horror the actual breaks for people (even higher rate tax payers) are actually worse off. When you add to that you are effectively giving brown the chance to borrow money off you at a ridiculously low interest rate it really is best not to let him have the money at all.

So I've decided to cash in all my Premium Bonds and National Savings and put them into other investment vehicles for now.

If you have any kind of National Savings Investments I would suggest a quick read of the following article and a rethink about your investment strategy.

I for one will not support Brown in any way and certainly am not lending to him anymore.

Crikey, I really cant believe the extent to which this cheeky rogue is fleecing everyone where ever he can, has this man no ethics or does he truely believe he is surving some higher socialist purpose!?

Glad to see your doing your bit to try and beat him in any small way possible!

Brown’s “stealth” changes have contributed to a big leap in the amount of money raised for the government.

Is there nothing that man doesn't do by stealth?

your money is always completely safe because it is government-backed.”

I feel hugely re-assured knowing that our government fully backs the scheme especially as it appears committed to its journey of bankruptcy. :unsure:
