Uk 10 Year Bond Yields Now 1.88% Lowest For 300 Years


Recommended Posts

Just on Sky News.

The irony is, the UK Government isn't even cutting as borrowing continues to rise.

Mind you, at these rates we could go on printing and borrowing forever.

Seems that although we are in the cr*p the Eurozone is so much worse that our economy is sucking in capital fleeing from the impending European descent into loony left economic policies, political extremism and probably a European civil war of some kind.

It started off badly, trailed off in the middle and the least we say about the end the better :lol:

Well after the Olympics, the Diamond Jubilee and Wills getting Kate up the Duff the yield will probably fall below 1%.

At the end of the day many countries in Europe didn't even exist 150 years ago and many have only had democracy for a few decades

If you invest money in the UK you know that in 100 years time it will still be worth something.

It's obviously not the EZ per se, rather the Latin / Germanic fault line.

I heard that the seats in the olympic stadium were designed to be at a precise angle to cause everyone's loose change to fall out of their pockets into a special collecting tray underneath. The national debt will be paid off in no time.

Never been a better and more appropriate time for the UK to borrow and spend.

Well that is exactly what they are doing while claiming to be making huge cuts in order to placate the markets.

They aren't making any cuts, it's just that the public sector became used to year on year above inflation rises paid for by deficit spending under Nu Labour.

There is only one way out: Default and Print. The only question is when it happens, not if.

The matter is entirely in the hands of the German political establishment, the principal obstruction being the folk-memory of hyperinflation among the German electorate.

Do they throw Greece under the bus as a scare tactic to shock the German public out of its complacency, or not?
