Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

[There is no reason why we cannot move straight to a FTA between the EU and UK, and everything will be hunky dory. However, Brussels/Germany will not negotiate without our surrender first. Nope. Can't let you get away with that. We currently have a deal. It's called "membership". We, the ...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

It is pretty clear to me that May was just lying about her views in that speech. Some, though I am not sure who as I know nobody that thinks she was anything other than utterly useless as PM, may argue it was part of her negotiating tactics. But we know that is not the case as the EU team has told ...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

I think it has a 0% chance of gaining traction with Corbyn, IMHO he will only call a no confidence vote if he is going to get to lead the replacement Govt. Swinson must know that. She is the one that is more desperate to stop no deal and indeed Brexit full stop. If she continues to refuse to suppor...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

Still think this is the best idea. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49367612 I appreciate that Jo declining to support JC must have been tricky, and perhaps she'll regret it. However, KC is a better bet, plus he's a Tory. Anyone here think that this idea will gain traction? Matt I think it ha...

Re: When to Top-Up a HYP not yet in Drawdown (spun out of ITH's Pyad update)

I seem to recall that studies have shown that there is no significant advantage or disadvantage in investing immediately before or after a share goes ex-dividend, so as a HYP investor I simply ignore dividend dates until I actually own the share concerned. VRD Talking of Gengulphus I think he did t...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

As for my preferred option, given where May has stranded us I would prefer a Norway model in the short term allowing trade deals independent of the EU whilst staying in the Single Market. That would give the flexibility to remain in that situation or move further from the EU over time. But I am als...

Re: What PYAD has said about selling

My understanding was that there were some exceptional reasons to sell, as highlighted, but that the "no tinker" mantra meant selling just to rebalance was not part of purist PYADic HYP. The imbalance in HYP1 seems to confirm that PYADic HYP does not involve rebalancing for rebalancing's s...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

If you are going to quote me, please don't cut sections out of context. If we did have a referendum and we did vote to remain then those who would be carrying out this 'backlash' against it would be a minority. Under those circumstances, do you think it would have been democratic not to know that t...

Re: When to Top-Up a HYP not yet in Drawdown (spun out of ITH's Pyad update)

We live in strange times. You mention DS Smith, which I also hold. Future yield 5.3% and under my median weight, so this would be a reasonable topup candidate - except that there are so many high-high yields around that it is actually more than half way down the top up rankings. Arb. Thanks for you...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

So we shouldn't ask the people They already did. because, if they do want to stay in the EU, They said they don't. there'll be an ugly backlash from the minority who still want to leave . No there won't. They weren't a minority. Nice of you to clarify that... You're welcome. Did I miss the election...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

For example, a simple choice between May's deal and no Brexit now may result in a vote for no Brexit, but that does not mean a majority do not want to leave the EU. Given that choice I would vote no Brexit, but I would still want to leave the EU. Mrs May, in her Lancaster House speech as I recall, ...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

What sort of international crisis are you thinking of ? Corbyn probably wouldn't support an American invasion of Iran but I'm not sure that would be bad any more than Harold Wilson's refusal to get the UK involved in the Vietnam war was bad for Britain. Iranians sink a UK ship killing the crew; maj...

Re: Corbyn calls for backing in forming caretaker government

Swinson appears to be becoming isolated in her opposition to Corbyn as the head of a caretaker administration and has released a new letter to Corbyn which no longer totally rules out the possibility of supporting him. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/aug/15/lib-dems-urged-to-back-corbyn-a...
