    A prussian double crown in a rather impressive grade. 1888 is also the three emperor year with Wilhelm I marking the first Emperor to reign this remarkable year.

    Stu reacted to Scuzzle in The Declining Use of Cash in the UK   
    This is always played out as a move by move strategy, the latest one is to announce bank charges for every withdrawal from a hole in wall machine, once this is up and running a year later they will run with the "cash use is down X percent" narrative all the time leading to the eventual "do we really need it" day.  It's the same with forcing the elderly to accept technology, all this 2 and 3 stage security is forcing people to get smartphones so they can get the authentication code or pin no. to allow them to access their bank account online or to green light an online purchase.
    I can see why banks would like to do away with cash, cashless allows them to implement negative interest rates as it removes any escape route, in a banking crisis there will be no more runs on the banks and no more queues half a mile down the street because there is no cash to withdraw, when they run into trouble they will just shut you out and decide how much of a haircut they are going to give you to bail them in.  Also they save on the costs of printing and all that ink and paper.

    Stu got a reaction from caloundracats in Brexit status ...   
    No tangible power, this was a European "Parliament" election after all😀
    The salient points are it sent a strong signal to TPTB that there iremains a strong wish to leave the EU. This will be ignored again however I fear. People decided to vote on this issue as the only factor and many didn't vote along traditional party lines I.e perhaps voted for the Brexit party (Newly formed single issue party) rather than usual conservative/labour vote.
    As an aside is it just me or has any else noticed people in the media pronouncing the word
     issue like they are having a stroke? Drives me feckin mad. Also folk who start ever sentence with "so" , grow up. I'm a tolerant guy but capital ,punishment is worth reinstating for some things.

    Must be great to know it all. The tories in pole position with 9%, share of the vote! To quote Blackadder, this has more twists and turns than a twisty turney thing.

    Filling a gap in the series....the PF70 Falcon. 
    Is it laziness, poor spelling ...or simply lack of space that excuses NGC for not making it “Plantagenets” ?? 😉 
    Anyway - the design is growing on me.  Initially I thought it was a bit of a scrawny Falcon...

    I don't worry about spot price.
    I just buy a little each month regardless.
    As a general rule you will pay over spot when you buy and get less than spot when you sell.
