I think Boris is saving himself for later on. He knows that whoever takes over will have a big mess to clear up and it'll be a thankless task. When the next one goes he'll step in and say that he can save the country. lol. Anyway, it looks like they're looking down every avenue to keep us in the EU, even saying that the referendum is only advisory and that mp's will have the final say. Even though I voted to stay in, if this result doesn't stick, I'll never vote again.
Reg Carney is a card. lolol. The pound is dropping off a cliff (remember how we've been told time and time again that a cheap currency is good for exports - everyone has been trying to devalue their currency with QE and voila, we don't even need QE to do it) but he wants more QE to stimulate the economy to stave off a recession and instill some inflation but drop the interest rate at the same time. lol. Very odd. They make all this up as they go along. I don't think anyone has a clue what to do from the politicians down to the economists. So long as they're getting their huge salaries, all is well.
I'm glad Southgate isn't going for the England job. At least he has some sense. They'll put someone like Pardew in charge. I can see it happening. The only way is down (even further down than we are now).
£34 million for a player is pretty standard these days. Ridiculous money for a player that's pretty average. He'll probably be on over £100,000 a week as well.
I don't think much of Portugal. Poland were worth a win. Come on you Welsh.
that would be nice - we can take those Germans on penalties then lol. Just hope we batter the 'guese and see that Pepe get sent off for his dirty cheating tactics. France Iceland to see before all that
Oaky - so who to support tonight? The wonderful French with superb loyal Griezmann and their attacking flair, or the oily slicks, second hand car salesmen, cheating, play-acting simulators who waves their hand around to get other players booked, Portuguese with possibly the most obnoxious arrogant footballer ever in Portugal. Hmmm - tough choice - so think I'll choose - not to watch it at all lolol. Really not bothered by it anymore - Will check out Chris Froome in the TDF, and might watch Andy Murray, anything but painting Chairs and table in anti-rust paint - 3 days coating 2 tables and 4 chairs - Thursday Friday was supposed to be a holiday and all. Got the same two days off this week too, but if there is no beach weather, I will be the slave labourer again.
Going to buy BKG tomorrow Moon - 8% dividend can't be ignored, so makes sense as can use trading reserve charged @ 6.75% dr interest and still making on the deal, whilst slowly whittling the debt down. They have been oversold since Brexit vote, and investors have caught on to the fact.
See Prescott has admitted he was wrong over Iraq and apologized - wonder if Blair will even scratch his head for a second to wonder if he was wrong. By the way, any thoughts on getting your second woman Prime Minister in either May or Leadsome? Don't think either is a Thatcher and will potentially call an early General Election because of the shambles that is the Labour Party at present. Will give them a mandate for the next 5 years, and they can negotiate the Brexit and say the people gave them authority to do it. May for 3 years, retire, and then you get Boris. Following Cameron will be a poisoned chalice - a bit like Moyes following Ferguson lol.
How's that 100,000 short shares at 1.04 you bought on February 25th working out?
Let's see, a CONSERVATIVE estimate would be $23,400 in interest to date
HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW HAW!!!!!!
The markets are obviously RIGGED and bloating themselves now for the inevitable 1,000 point+ drop when Trump is elected president. That drop will happen during the ratings season, of course. The markets are MANIPULATED for MONEY only. There is no connection between "Wall Street" (not a real thing , read: the thieves who manipulate your money) and the REAL ECONOMY with 20% REAL UNEMPLOYMENT RATE. A Real SCAM and J-O-K-E if you have a sense of humor about the rigging.
Just seen your post. Took me that long to write my little message that you'd already posted. Boris put his foot in it with the Americans on day one calling Hiliary Clinton something or other. lol. He reminds me of a Prince Philip. Says whatever comes into his mind at that moment in time. Mrs May has already had to defend him. She'll have her job cut out with him, never mind Brexit. She's saying all the right things at the moment but there again so did Tony Blair. He was the darling of the nation when he came to power but Theresa May has a battle on her hands with getting us out of the EU with favourable terms. The Germans want none of that. They just want us out and I don't blame them. The EU have given us a lot of funding over the years and now we're starting to realise that this money is being cut off and people are going to lose their jobs. I really hope inflation doesn't take off and those idiots start cutting interest rates. I can't believe they're even thinking about it. Maybe it's their way to keep the financial markets happy because it's nothing to do with improving the economy.. Savers will just get poorer and debtors will still be paying an exhorbitant interest rate to their banks for any loans they have. They won't see an interest rate of 0.25%. They'll be paying 4%.
That's a good increase on your BLND but do you cash any of the shares in? Like 25% of them to realise a profit? Or are you just happy with the divi?
Pogba is a good player but Man U have a bad record of spending loads of money on a player and he turns out to be a dud. Gives them a lift for a few months and then it all falls apart. we'll see.
Bought SL back again this morning @ £3.25 based on solid results and divi up. Will look to sell back LGEN top-up closed to ex-divi day, as results not so well received, and getting too much leverage on Trading reserve account.
John Stones to Man City for £48m, the guy couldn't get a kick at Euro 16 - Ashley Williams the Wales colossus to Everton for £12m - maybe I am biased, but seeing better value in one transfer than the other? :-)
There was no way the ftse was going to finish down today. There was as much chance of that as me winning next years tour de france on my mountain bike. lol. A massive 36 points divi on the ftse tomorrow which just happens to be the biggest of the year. It drew them in like flies around shite as the saying goes. lololol.
Talking of the tour de france. I think winning that took it out of chris froome and he just hasn't had enough energy for racing in the olympics. He did his best today but it was nowhere near his best form.

Every major democracy has some level of socialism. Social Security, Medicare and even the Military where high income people pay taxes for the protection of people who pay no taxes. To suggest that a country should have no socialism is either a lack of understanding of what it is or a completely unrealistic view.
Can see where you are coming from Moon, but he is talking about an interest rate CUT and more QE to improve liquidity, so the markets loved it and are juiced up on high octane joy. Think this rally has more legs in it tomorrow, but mainly on my defensives lol. There has been a big flight to safety, BATS, IMB, GSK, AZN, RDSB, NK, are all at yearly or multi-year highs, and looking at ones I don't have like ULVR & DGE they are also going big. Banks Housebuilders, Insurance are still lagging behind their pre-Brexit prices. WIll take stock over the weekend to work out moves
Surprised over Boris, but think Gove stabbed him in the front, which won't endear him in the leadership vote - incredible times really, but never though Boris was PM material though, bit too much buffoon in his locker. Wouldn't mind seeing May winning it? don't know how Corbyn is still in his job.
Talking of jobs, saw that Southgate isn't interested in the England one - don't blame him at all - why change successful U21 job for that dross. Liverpool at it again with Southampton nicking another player Mane for £34m - can you believe that price?
" am not sure if appointment of such a committee is really a sign of a step ahead in the process." LOL
Either poorly worded or just plain clueless ... or both
