Lynney, it is time you like others become more tolerant.
I understand and appreciate your opinions.
They are yours and important, to a point.
Everyone has faults ,its the nature of humans.
I to like Germans Mr Tibbles no close relative though. Not fancy living in Germany surely you must prefer to live in Germany what could the poor old UK have to keep you here when everything European is marvelous. Surely they are following the Ivory ban and protecting the bee we all know how all European countries follow every rule. What is amazing to me Mr Tibbles is I assume you are part of that liberal elite who have forgotten that strange word democracy . Look it up see what it means. To me if remain had won I would have worked and wished for my country to be successful as it was leave won so I worked and wished for my country to be successful. Try it!
Certainly not right Mr Bond, just proves how unfit for purpose the present electoral system is , it suits those at present who want to retain a flawed and unfit for purpose system that gives them unfair advantage by being able to manipulate election results, the manipulation is just as bad as in the financial markets, although hopefully pace is gathering to radically reform both!
I really like Germany, in fact my wife is from Hanover, great country and they always make us so welcome when we visit!
What a pity that we are no longer Europeans, albeit for the time being until a younger more cosmopolitan electorate demand the opportunity to be 21st century citizens of a wider community with all the Freedoms and benefits the UK now denies them
Our UK government isn't so hot, it has been dragging its lazy butt on this, no doubt it will blame the EU or the pandemic for the delay
Two years on, we are still waiting on the UK's ivory ban
In December 2018, the UK’s ivory ban was passed – it was expected to come into force in late 2019. More than two years later, we have yet to see it implemented despite the British public’s overwhelming support.
I've just written to my Tory MP asking why the delay , although he lives over sixty miles away from his constituency and rarely replies to letters from his constituents , unlike my MEP who always responded and dealt with his constituents queries .
'Our bond yields are substantially higher than Germany’s, indicating that hopes of recovery are better advanced.'
Irrespective of one's views about Brexit, the above line is worthy of the Clown Hat of the Year award for 2021. And we're not even through with February yet.
I stopped reading after that.
@zambianminer The Guardian goodness me some will be feeling quite weak at the knees today. Yes yes yes yes !; Come on UK have we done something ok well I never!
A link for MrT as he loves them so much and from The Guardian
Yes Mr Tibbles, it was not right being ignored, but it left many with serous problems especially pensioners with no private insurance cover, it is unaffordable for most, now their European EHICS cards will soon finish.
Thankfully I am registered for Spanish treatment ,which is excellent.
Today has not been good ,had to drop the car off by tow truck at the garage and walk 12 miles home, Sundays no taxis and not on a bus route. Broken power steering and alternator belt = flattened battery. Good car Alfa Spider. Lol.
Andrew is very brave, there is much at stake and the manipulators will fight till their final breath, with governments helping them.
I feel the same will happen to make sure the dollar stays as reserve currency.
With PM s it may be much more difficult to keep prices down. We will soon see.
Very interesting Mr Gnome!
Hi Mr Bond,
Hope all is well with you in Spain, lot's of Brit's think it was unfair the way that Expats were nt given the opportunity to vote in the (B) referendum, really any UK passport holder should have been eligible considering how much the outcome may affect them.
Anyway, yes sorry I digressed, Andrew really is a decent chap and although I won't disclose the big trading bank concerned Andrew had a top job involved with commodity trading , but over a period he had become increasingly troubled about how the livelihoods of whole communities in various parts of the world were detrimentally affected, even destroyed by some of the trading practices/instruments used that made huge profits for the trading banks and bonuses for their traders.
He tried to make his manegment seniors realise that the bank could still be making good profits (albeit slightly less initially) by trading differently, but in ways that would also help support the local communities livelihoods, rather than in many cases making their lives much worse.
Although the attitude of his bank was that if they didn't trade as they did then they would lose out to other banks trading arms so nothing changed.
After this on one particular morning some trading positions had been taken in silver and by the afternoon these trades had made huge profits by smashing down the silver prices which unfortunately became so low that several Chilean mines would be forced to close or be moth balled making their workers unemployed.
So although the trading desk was celebrating Andrew packed his case and walked out vowing to expose the manipulation that was going on,the rest is history as we know!
Andrew doesn't say a great deal about the enemies he has made, but he has paid a heavy price over the years for going against the system, also a few years ago as Andrew and his wife were walking along a relatively quiet street they were both knocked down by a car that had mounted the pavement and then sped off without stopping, of course that may have been a coincidence because the car was stolen and the driver was never traced.
Thankfully Andrew and his wife both recovered and he carries on trying to make others aware of the ongoing unfair market manipulation.
@goldgnome did watch it and found it very interesting the last 10 minutes just made my eyes open wide having spent alot of time chatting to people of all nationalities in a relaxed atmosphere running social events listening to them talk about what was happening in their counties ie Spain,Greece,Ireland,Italy then it does bring it home what they where saying.
Here is a very nice insight into the creation of money, and the real workings of the Bank by Professor Werner. A little different to how one would think, or some would have you believe. It is most remarkable that there should be such confusion about something as fundamental as baking. Why?
very interesting GBP 2.5m payout, to the Professor, still being contested
There is some related material, that can be found in THE PRINCES OF THE YEN, which is a deep dig on the role of the Japanese Princes of the Central Bank, in the destruction of Japans economy and future. Perhaps not heard of this. Its why hiostory repeats itself, and is about to again. The book, not unsurprisingly, is not available at Amazon?
But for those who like a good documentary version
and you maybe able to download the pdf at
Princes of the Yen reveals how post-war Japanese society was transformed to suit the agenda of powerful interest groups, and how citizens were kept entirely in the dark about this. History is now repeating itself around the world.
Based on a book by Professor Richard Werner, a visiting researcher at the Bank of Japan during the 90s crash, during which the stock market dropped by 80% and house prices by up to 84%. The film uncovers how the Bank of Japan pumped up and then crashed the Japanese economy, with an aim of inducing change. Today, what happened in Japan 25 years ago is repeating itself in Europe, with an aim of centralizing power in the Eurozone. (and we wont mention the USA)
The film shows why it is important for central banks to be accountable and transparent. It also explains how International Financial Organizations such as the IMF seek to impose conditions on countries that are mainly of benefit to dominant Western interests. For anyone interested in understanding recent developments and the significance of the establishment of institutions such as the AIIB and the BRICS led New Development Bank, Princes of the Yen provides the background.
Princes of the Yen reveals with clarity the control levers that underpin the dominant ideology of the 21st Century. Piece by piece, reality is deconstructed to reveal the world as it is, not as those in power would like us to believe that it is.
“Because only power that is hidden is power that endures.”
the gnome ...
I am sure you are right Mr Tibbles.
But if seen as a big threat will end up castigated.
Good to hear from you, yes indeed it's been a long time coming but Basil 3 should finally be a game changer hat is long overdue , it should certainly help Centamin, so hang on in if you are able to
I have known Andrew Maguire for quite some time and I have to admire his integrity and personal commitment in trying to expose the behind the scenes manipulation of the precious metals markets.
He could have been a very rich man just by keeping quiet and going with the flow, but that's not his style, so he got out and decided to expose what was, still is going on!
There is a lot more to Andrew than many people realise, but that's probably best left for now.
I had a look at some of the mcguire videos and found the basel iii accord quite interesting, but couldn't find much more commentary on it, could be a gamechanger if the dates don't get pushed out again.
This explains some of the reasons why the POG is being manipulated down despite a severe shortage of real bullion for physical delivery
Andrew Maguire details the correlation with a historical metric pointing to a potential astronomical increase in gold and silver prices.
The precious metals expert breaks down why the SLV is unable to source enough 1000 oz silver bars to fill its baskets, and updates us on the major banks standing for physical delivery on April COMEX contracts.
