same colour as the star on his cap and the little red book, now with fresh material from JC Mcdonnal and McClusky. Dianmne was not involved as she is too busy being the poster girl for the new order, railing against slogans "knives are sharp and can hurt you" on fried chicken boxes. The girl clearly sees things differently from evveyone else. bless
indeed but then markets are good at joining dots and coning up with nonsense. It probably goes along the line of a no deal will cause a run on the pound pushing up inflation and thus need intervention by that economic superstar Carney. Higher rates would dent sentiment etc etc
only the asset less will vote for because he will promise to redistribute wealth from rhode that have grafted all their lives to those who have contributed zip all. He did that in the last election by p[ropmising students that he would kill off tuition fees. The muppets poe course believed him and manage to swing some marginal uni towns in particular. The dancing queen was out with fairies at bottom of the garden reminiscing how she used to run through cornfields in the buff nefeore she took on he job of PM.
sure i expect they are doing indeed that. The Eurocrats negotiated in bad faith from day 1 seeking too make any deal so onerous that we would be forced to back down , nullify the result of the referendum and bring us back to Brussels court of jester to prostrate ourselves to our true masters and beg for clemency. There is in their fanatical and flawed logic no alternative to an integrated non sovereign Europe. Naively they failed to look at history or at least learn from the catastrophic mistakes the would be dominators made, only to repeat the same ones. From the outset it dod have been better for them to have us onside and agree to differ on political philosophy. We are still a reasonably important trading nation by global reckoning and a nation worth negotiating with by others who like some access. Sadly the remain camp have distorted the facts and through connivance with the lefty-liberal media and some rotten elements in our elected MP's fed the nation a diet of alarmist nonsense relentlessly from a time even before the Referendum itself with frankly idiotic predictions from Osborne and Carney. the British electorate were treated like suckers by the previous administration and Brussels alike so guess its not surprising that as nation we are sick and tired of Brexit and the samples self serving politicians which some how seem to think they can do what the y want when they want and get paid for it. political coverage is entering hysterical phase now as "constitutional experts" opine over what can or can not be done and how the sovereignty of the HoC has to be upheld. What ??? The HoC has failed to deliver the mandate given to them by duplicity and disingenuous activities. It is the HoC that has failed to uphold and honour the basic foundations of our democratic system. BJ needs to tread carefully, and continue to focus on putting some of the most pressing non Brexit issues that have been kicked into the long grass by May et al to demonstrate to the electorate that he is putting Britain first as a sovereign nation and not some little overseas colony of a bust, morally defunct and unguided wannabe Federal Superstate". The Brussels would-be emperors have no clothes, they are F....! LLOY despite having been savagely and vindictively legged over by the politicians and administrators alike is now a strong efficient and competitive bank producing RoC Europe banks can only dream of.
correct. The ECB has nothing left it can do. In reality taking more assets on its balance sheet is becoming problematic and is in open conflict with German fiscal prudence . Interest rates are already negative so to cut them further still would be even more harmful to the European banking system which has by and large dragged its heels to reform since the last financial crisis seemingly unwilling to puts its shareholders through same wringer as they inflicted on us as they somehow believed that the financial crisis was caused by the 'Anglo-Saxon' banking systems. Fact is they will be in a deflationary recession by the end of the year.
Sure trump is who trump is and trump as elected by the American people snd will probably do do so again. The dems are like our remainers they can’t accept the democratic process. That’s not the point though the point is the situation the Eu now finds itself in with its inability to stimulate the the groups economy. For us as a country that’s worrying
We have long felt that Powell moved too aggressively on rates. That said he is at least in a position to cut albeit at the cost of some loss of face . The ecb is not in such a fortunate position so will be forced into taking yet more c5ap on its balance sheet. Pretty much a case of damned if they do and damned if they don’t. As the legend said : when the tide goes out we will see who has been swimming without shorts” grand schemes are costly grandiose schemes are unaffordable.
"Loaves and the fishes trick" wow! it was all a trick then? How was it done? Maybe turning water into wine as well? we have tried to explain why the Lloy share price is down as indeed is the FTSE only to be answered with a lot of expletives about BJ, public school education and on. seriously I am sure a few of us would like to learn how the tricks were done as it would be good fun to try one of them at a party. maybe your pal JFCC can help you out?
Just got back in from checking over the shoots. Glad to say all looking good for the punters tomorrow. I think johnson comment was levelled at the bunch of serial wingers called the CBI. Lloy went dividend last week if not mistaken and chelates opinion poll suggests that the public feel HoC has failed then and will back BJ to shut down Parliament. We have a little blip down in GDP, Trump is still at loggerheads with China, China is at loggerheads with a few pro democracy supporters in Hong Kong, global growth looks to be turning somewhat anaemic, the oil price is heading south despite Iran's best efforts, there is another default looming in Argentina, its all going £ts up in South Africa and India has taken control over Kashmir. Just a normal summer really. just saying
why not . Taxing the motorist is always good solution or not it seems. reality is that now you have to buy an old clunker if you want to commit suicide in your garage because the latest generation cars don't produce enough! The point wrt horses is a good one but of course the handsome cabs have long gone from our London streets as indeed has coal of course. But then global warming does not recognise national boundaries as anyone has spent a couple of days in Beijing or Shanghai will concur with. Perhaps the miners did us a favour back in the day hastening the closure of our pits and reliance on coal. I bet Arthur never thought of that- he was far too busy fighting his revolution and upholding the rights of the "working class" and securing union funding from old mother Russia. I think our German friends still use a bit of brown coal every now and then which helpfully stunts the growth rated of Scandinavian forests and reduces the Ph of the Baltic. Real or not it seems that complexity of tackling climate change makes the issue of Brexit rather simple and binary.
Hi Tom We are here most summers. Negative or ambiguous commentary seems to have a disproportionate effect on the SP which is already suffering from poor trading liquidity thus allowing free reign to leverage players to benefit from the additional volatility. We have had the numbers which were solid enough and we have had our dividends which were exceptional by FTSE standards. Housebuilding is a stable industry as demand continues to far outweigh supply, particularly in our segment of the housing market. For those looking to get the keys to their first home Brexit is unlikely to be a deal breaker imo. My advice to you FWIW is go to your garage and give the motor a bit of TLC or better still take it for spin to make sure that the mice have n't set up home in one of your many exhaust pipes. ! In that vain I think will follow my own advice and head to garage myself to check the oil level and take her for a blow down the-bypass. ! ! keep the faith and gl
I think you are right on that one. We are mere passengers on this planet and thus unable to influence timetable as indeed we are on our excellent rail network -in the lap of the gods. That said carbon neutrality, is something worth striving for if only to make our place nicer to live in. Planting more trees in our major cities and provide more open spaces for people to enjoy especially if they are going to be well policed as they will be thanks to BJ's police initiative , has to be good for all. There is little doubt that we need to reduce our individual footprint on this planet as the number of feet is rising rapidly. We cannot preach to the lesser developed but emerging countries if we do not do the same ourselves. Competing at horse trial over the weekend the coffee vender was using compostable cups and lids. I think this a good thing and should be done as matter of cause especially as they cost no more to buy. Packaging, likewise, much can be done for just a little effort and incentive. Changing the mind set of the individual who thinks nothing of lobbing a KFC or Micky D box out the van window may take a little longer as it would to change attitudes elsewhere in the world.
