Re: German Manufacturing Index Signals Contraction

China has sneezed and it looks like Europe is catching the cold, and it was not a healthy patient before. Where is there to go for the EU with monetary policy to defend against this?

Exactly this. The UK will be a success outside of the EU, quite simply because the great people of the UK know how to make a success out of change.

Re: BREXIT

BREXIT for the rEU is a genuine example of a rather hackneyed expression; 'an existential crisis'. They cannot facilitate us thriving post Brexit and will do all they can to reverse Brexit altogether. Exactly this. The UK will be a success outside of the EU, quite simply because the great people of...

Apparently he has just been arrested and appeared in Court this afternoon. How have the mighty fallen. Not proof of guilt of course. Dod 14 charges in total, 2 of a very serious nature. Some on this site have said before that because a woman/women wouldn't lie about these accusations, he is guilty.

Re: If you had £10K to invest

Thanks all for your replies. I'm in my 40's and looking to use this investment to fund my retirement. I don't plan on having to access the money before then. If you are a higher rate tax payer, and are sure that you will not need access to the money prior to retirement, then a SIPP may well be the ...

How old are you? thirties, forties, etc?

Re: Business Reality verses Project Fear

So business is "stockpiling" employees ahead of the UK leaving the EU.

That is not what Project Fear forecast would happen. What could be the explanation for their forecasts being so flawed and unreliable?

Re: Would No-Deal be really that bad?

The lack of hard border and WTO rules applies to both sides on the island of Ireland. No deal calls the EU's bluff and levels out the playing field in the FTA negotiation. Ireland will not put up a border and the EU will not risk opening its market up to the rest of the world on free trade terms by ...
