My earlier post ''J46 Not much of a return trading currency betting on a 'no deal' You can at this moment in time get a 700% return on a 2019 'no deal' outcome on Betfair'' J46 Since my post could have sold the 7/1 bet for a 17% profit whilst sterling has gone up.

PC You come across as being upset, and so making desperate posts with content which consist of what you would hope to come about. This shows signs of stress on your part. You will be in danger of being seen as lacking all credibility if you just continue to post your wish list rather than being based on released news. That is all DCB ever did, and he has ended up at the asylum.
Snige Many many millions of people care that it is a withdrawal agreement that does not tie the UK to the EU with a never ending backstop. The vast majority of those millions including myself consider the Lloyds short term share price is not of a significant importance in comparison
P ''looks like it’s coming back for a fourth time on Saturday... will he get it through''
Your post is just made up of assumptions and 'IF's. No one has said that the TM deal will be voted on for a 4th time. Cannot envisage the country letting the 'momentum labour' party anywhere near to getting into power.
NC ''Those who do, do dividend reinvestment will then have to pay out even more ''
They don't have to, it would be a choice. To someone receiving very large amounts in dividends, it wouldn't make much difference paying a few pounds extra as a fee. For those receiving small amounts in dividends then it is questionable if automatic reinvestment is the right thing to do. Investors may be better off not automatically reinvesting. They could use accumulated dividends not spent, to reinvest a larger amount at a time of their choosing.
NC ''….why people on here are excited about receiving the dividends 'more often'
I am not one of the 'excited' ones. I expect it is like people being paid weekly instead of monthly. Some people haven't the discipline not to blow their monthly salary within a couple of weeks, so having it split into smaller chucks they may see it as an imposed discipline that they could not manage for themselves.
2227 The aim is for a progressive sustainable dividend policy, so I feel a 5p yearly dividend although affordable at this moment in time, won't be a figure reached for maybe another 7 years. No good for sentiment having to drastically having to cut a relatively near term 5p payment back down to 3.6p. The excess capital can of course be allocated to share buybacks which are another form of return to shareholders. Cutting back or stopping a buyback would not affect sentiment as a large cut in dividend would, as of course the benefit of a buyback is not put into the dividend yield calculation.
