At last, it looks like the UK is to repeal the EU’s stupid directive forcing websites to put up those annoying “Accept Cookies” banners? It seems trivial, yet this small annoyance is indicative of the hundreds of thousands of trivial and anti-business regulations that have unaccountably poured out from Brussels for decades. –This is a paragraph explaining why the ‘Accept Cookies’ request is a waste of time:
“Both behavioural science and common sense tell you that putting a ‘tick to accept’ box in front of someone at the point they want to access a website or service does not generate genuine informed consent, it just means people are likely to tick ‘accept’ without thinking…a good measure of whether reform is successful will be the end of pointless cookie banners.“ You can and should, set your privacy preferences at browser level, once, not on every site, every time.
Regulatory freedoms post-Brexit, bring it on. Don't know about the masses but they sure p*** me off.
Rosewall, there you go again, a typical leftwing approach. You don't want to hear other people's opinions, you want to hear your opinion coming out of their mouths. Then if you can't hear it they become an ignorant moron. Step back a bit and try to deal with the subject in hand instead of the constant aggression. But of course by now you're hoping everyone has forgotten the subject, typical lefty tactics.
Rosewall, everyone has a voice here and everyone has an opinion, and there's the thing, opinions differ. If someone disagrees with your opinion then he or she instantly becomes an ignorant moron. View of the left, don't you think? You have to accept that you're not correct all the time. Regarding your headlong 'rush' into PM's, I believe there's still some mileage left in equities yet, as ever always good to diversify though. As for manipulation, we'll that's someone's opinion.
As ever just following the science snige, the decision is based on Joint Biosecurity Centre risk assessments. Travel to England was banned except for UK citizens and residents, and where did this outbreak materialise, oh yeah in areas of a high Indian population. Flights were kept open for freight and UK nationals. Wonder if they isolated? You have to remember there is no credible opposition in this country, Starmer ditched all of your last heroes policy's (Corbyn) and hasn't got any of his own yet. Just hindsight and if the government say something then labour says the opposite. The Indian variant has been found in Australia and their borders are supposedly shut....go figure.

Quite vocal this morning stockready1, preaching to all and sundry in a rather superior attitude. If there's one thing I've learnt over the years, just when you think you've got the hang of things and with all the reasoning and subsequent conclusions you come to, something happens and that soapbox you're standing on collapses along with all of your predictions. It's good to hear contributors views but don't talk down to peep's you're no better than anyone else on here. Have a good day.

""One week after the economy opens up Lloyds will be 60p"" DYOR
livestock. I fail to see how DoingYOR, you would come to the conclusion that lloyds will be 60p, and exactly one week, blimey. No amount of so called research can justify that statement. It's all waffle, and you know it.
I agree Takay, Kallak is why BEM has maintained the £30m + valuation until now (just hanging on). If you want graphite try TGR, it's been flying these last couple of days, and probably more mileage left. BTW, that's not a recommendation, but you can't hang around here forever. Just saying.
That's debatable, with more outlets than ever refusing to take cash. Returns on cash at or near all time lows. Major growth of debit cards, electronic transfers, and mobile payments. Nobody uses large denomination notes. Use of cash has been declining for years.
The general consensus on here has been that BEM have followed the application process to the letter, even providing additional information to try and appease various organisations. It's easy to blame KB for all the delays with many blaming him for not instigating proceedings by now. The delays are firmly with the government, but that's what you get with a proportional representation system, the tail wagging the dog. And to think some are pushing for a similar system here, mainly the minorities, Lib Dems and the Greens.
Well there's your answer, despite defying gravity for the last few months the SP has now gone sub 4p. The old adage that the SP will return to the issue (fund raise) price seems to be coming to fruition.
September 11th is the date of the next election over there, who's gonna sell and use the money elsewhere, not many on here I guess.
Falkland, why are you messing around with the VIX, the only time it comes to real prominence is when there's a major catastrophe, then everyman and his dog starts running around in circles quoting rising VIX values. That's not to say it doesn't have its place. I would have thought as you trade FTSE stocks and want a hedge against a falling UK market you would be better off looking at something like SUK2. It trade's opposite the FTSE roughly twice the value so it's leveraged and unlike the VIX it does have a correlation to the market you trade. So if the FTSE declines by, say 2%, then the SUK2 will gain by about 4%. Ideal in a falling market, but as ever it's all about timing. Just saying.
