    I can’t see the advert properly but in the bottom right it has a * next to email and small print. I’m sure it will say something like “yes, please feel free to spam me for the next 50 years” or just call be every week with another amazing deal lol.

    Last post on the subject I promise but £50 to £1,200 in 19 years for a single bottle of 18 year old Macallan sounds like a great side hobby! Might start drinking and collecting 🥃

    People have done it! @Madstacks has sold some on here I’m sure. If you do some research on good old google theres some good articles about which bottled whisky are good investments ie will be discontinued soon. Japanese whisky has done very well in recent years as it just doesn’t have enough to meet demands and it obviously takes 12/15/18/25 etc years to produces the aged whiskies.
    I drink but now collect also as keeps me happy lol. I tend to buy something i know i will like and would be willing to drink for the price purchased. I have regular poker nights and we all chip in on a couple of good bottles and its a good way to try different ones and share the cost

    Whisky is probably the better investment in the bottle It can’t go bad unlike champagne. There is another thread called “let’s talk whisky” which covers some of this - it mostly involves buying whiskies that will be discontinued or are limited editions which are more desirable the rarer they become. There’s also some absolute bargains to be had at times. If it proves not to be a great investment you can always drink it 😬

    Obviously you need to do your own research but if you have space to store you can invest in whiskey by the bottle.  I myself purchased the glenmorangie 25 year when I found out it was being discontinued some years ago and purchased a couple of glenmorangie midwinter dram to put away and several others.  I also purchased hibiki 12 and 17 but I ended up opening them and drinking
    You can invest in whiskey without such a large outlay.  With all that said I am a whiskey drinker so the worst that can happen is I drink the whiskey so for me its a risk free investment.
    Wine searcher is a good place to check whiskey prices by the bottle.

    If you are in the U.S. read pages 90-103 of the Dot-Frank rules. The part about SIFI will make you not trust banks much anymore.

    Personally, I don't have a issue with American firms being able to tender for NHS contracts. Which is actually what the issue is about, NOT as the left would have you believe of a dismantling of the NHS and going to a system they have in the US. No UK party will ever countenance that. But what is the problem with a US company supplying cheaper services and drugs to the NHS, providing they adhere to our standards and regulations.
    The NHS wastes a huge amount of money through in-house purchasing departments, anything that can reduce this waste is a benefit to everyone.
    But hey, the left prefer soundbites to facts. It's a bit like the chlorinated chicken scares. According to the left, chicken washed in chlorine is bad, forgetting of course that we drink chlorinated water, we wash in chlorinated water and we swim in chlorinated water. EU farmers even wash vegetables in chlorinated water. EU scientists have even claimed there are no health risks from the chlorine. But still, it's a good headline to trot out.

    Anyone who wants to dismantle the NHS will lose the next general election and that party will probably be out of power for 15-20 years.  I think Labour want the conservatives to have negotiations to include the NHS, it would be the biggest gift to Labour ever.  
    Gove wanted out of the EU with a Deal, i remember him talking about the fisheries.  He has made more sense than most on leaving the EU.

    Pensions and the UK system of the nhs were designed to look after the people who were directly affected by WW2. It was not designed for anyone else and a massively larger (world) population and its inherent world movement of people. I do think that the nhs is absolutely worth maintaining and keeping as it is still the best form of access to health there is (if there is another system, do please post). It is struggling due to the above mentioned factors and rising costs and levels of higher technology/science but it is absolutely worth maintaining.

    I can report the first impact of Brexit on the coin community: PCGS just told me that they cannot offer drop off or pick up of coins any more since they were stopped at customs due to changed laws; they were allowed to pass as a one off but will stop the service from now on.
    Time for a UK office for PCGS!
