No one has a problem with the idea that solg can finance 85% of the project, why the presumption that cornerstone would not be able to raise the 15%? The project is so good, people expect institution's to throw money at solg but cornerstone have 15% of the same project.
Brazil! Another country that is suffering tremendously? because of China's arrogance in trying to cover up covid. Perhaps out of embarrassment for already giving us SARS and swine flu over the last 20 years alone. Would it not be fantastic if Brazil turn around and said " You can buy all the iron ore you want from us, but we are also calling for an independent inquiry because of all the thousands of our innocent civilians that are now dead because of your totalitarian dictatorship.
If countries continue to sell them the crown jewels, they will do whatever they please in the future, with the west paying a huge price, maybe not so much us, but the next generation will pay a high price. Just like the Romans never believed their empire would end in ruins, After 900 years it was crushed by barbarians. The west is sleeping walking in the belief our way of life will last forever. It won't! If the Chinese monster is left untamed
THE WHOLE WORLD NEEDS TO BOYCOTT CHNA! Simple, It would hurt us, but them a whole lot more. I would gladly pay more for non Chinese products. Small price to pay, we are 10% poorer, but the world is a better place. Well worth it!
China is becoming more and more dangerous. That's what's changed. The belt and road project is about control over the worlds supply of natural resources. They give cheap loans to poor countries, which are willingly? excepted. When the indebted country cannot repaid, China take control of the project ie mine, road rail line. It's already happened in Sri Lanka with a major port, China have just taken a 50 year lease, because repayments could not be made. How do you see the world in 20 years time when China own everything? The corona crisis has laid bare the west's nievity in allowing so much of its manufacturing base to be lost to far flung places. How will things be for us when to get our hands on anything, ie copper, iron ore, in the future we have to go cap in hand to the Chinese,
Personally, If it was ever put to a vote from shareholders, I would vote against a Chinese takeover. Whatever the price. Recent events have shown how dangerous that regime is. If people were concerned about Huawei's involvement in Britain's 5G network, that would fall into insignificance compared to what will happen once they have control over the worlds natural resources, the western world will literally become their slaves. The belt and road project is a guise to shore up their supply chain, They give out a loan to the host country, usually a very poor country with lots of natural resource, once the loan cannot be repaid, they take a long lease on the project ie port or rail line etc as a payment plan, it's already happened with a major port in Sri Lanka. They basically take control of it. In the next 20 years this will become a major problem to the west.
RE: Moving shares from Dealing account to an ISA account.02 May 2020 12:32
If you flip shares, one of the things I've done over the years is to sell shares in the regular account then buy them back, quite often a lot cheaper ( if you get the timing right) in the ISA account, I have managed to get the vast majority of my solg holding into my ISA over the years, and actually made money out of it. But you need a bit of lucky and a keen eye on the SP.
Don't worry about him Earthling, he is one of those people who tries to pretend he is intelligent. But does not manage to fool that many people, he will tell you about he's scientific background without realising how lots of people that don't have the opportunity to have a good education are actually innately far more intelligent than him.
This rise is fantastic and long overdue. I agree with Broke, I said so myself at the time, Tiggers call, no matter how unscientific was uncanny, it actually made me laugh at the time even though the market was in tatters.
