...with another armed guard to escort my wife and I to our table. The use of "my wife and I" instead of "my wife and me". If you are not sure which to use, try the sentence with just "I" or "me". "...with another armed guard to escort I to our table"...

Re: What does "Access to the Single Market" mean?

The way things are looking whatever May agrees to will be voted down by parliament unless non-Tory remainer MP's back her position. If they don't back her, they force the UK to leave with a clean WTO Brexit. It was remainers who in trying to force a remain outcome, insisted on parliament having thi...

Re: What does "Access to the Single Market" mean?

On investing, I am holding a good amount of cash to take advantage of situations that present themselves, situations similar to the week following the leave vote where data was behind market move rather than the fear spread by politics. We are again in the situation where the fear spread by politic...

Barring a miracle, all gone now. Pissed away by the alliance of Etonians, dreamers, bigots and the gullible who have set us on this path. Some people are starting to realise they have been sold a pup, but not yet in sufficient numbers to matter. It does not help either that people hate to think the...

Re: A question about graphs available online

And it's 'fun' playing until you get napalmed, when it's deeply unpleasant. What you're doing would scare me, and there is no way I'd do it; despite or perhaps because of my career having been on bank trading floors. Take care eh, and keep limits/stops on your downside is my suggestion. There are o...

Re: Who's telling the truth(2)?

The human mind is a very funny thing. We like to think we remember like a video. But we don't. Scientists (and the police) now know that our memory is more like a cartoon strip. We remember only tiny snippets of real information. Our brains fill in all the gaps in the movie for us by making up all ...

Ford remembers what supports her claim. Does she remember her own state of mind? How drunk was she? Is it possible that she led some guy on and then realised she could not control the situation? Was she OK with this until something happened and/or the guy (whether Brett or not) lost interest, made ...

Re: Has the market finally peaked? - anecdotal

If anyone has any actual evidence - as against anecdotal comments from people with axes to grind - that stamp duty of itself is a major influence on buying decisions I'd be very interested to hear it. I've no axe to grind but think it has a measurable effect if not major. Stamp duty is a frictional...

Re: Who's telling the truth(2)?

That isn't quite true on two counts. The two witnesses did not "dispute her claims". They said they had no recollection. That is quite a different thing. Well it's a little bit more emphatic than that. From Rachel Mitchell's memo after the hearing https://static.politico.com/28/7f/80157df...

Re: Terry Smith - the problem with investing for dividends

Yes, I understand his investment approach but this isn't what I was referring to with regard to "using information selectively". In the article I think it seems convenient that he's chosen a 10 year timescale i.e. the stockmarket period post the GFC, a period of record low interest rates ...
