    The EU gave May and remainer civil servants what they wanted.    Even the Brexit secretary didn’t know some bits.     So probably 10/20 people made this decision.    The only ones laughing about it are junker and co, bet they can’t believe what they got away with.       Would be interesting just to shut the money taps off for a couple weeks and see them sweat.    The eu don’t want us they want our cash.

    Huge shortfall in property numbers so unless all of a sudden thousands of new homes get built overnight I can’t see a 35% drop happening. I can’t see thousands of houses coming into the market over night on exit either.
    A discretionary fund manager told me that if we stay in Europe interest rates will go up quicker than if we exited. If we exit they’d likely stay lower for longer to help the economy. Lower rates mean higher demand for mortgages and make buying more affordable. It depends on what the BOE do with interest rates upon exit really.

    We have been here before but, there is still a lot of treasure that remains lost, or at least only one or two people know it’s location. Probably most likely that lots of it is in Swiss vaults and will never see the light of day again.
    Not gold but cast your minds back to 2013 when 1400 works of art were uncovered in a Munich flat. Estimated value was about 1.3 Billion Dollars....
    Equally, I heard from my grandfather that one of his friends got rich after WW2 because he was the only person who knew where a large resovir of petrol was located.  It was strictly a secret to be used if troops had to pull back from a particular location. He apparently sold the lot!

    @MickB I’m afraid thats just superstition. 
    If you withdraw and re buy you’ll be loosing out on a months worth of draw each time.
    I keep most of my “cash” percentage in premium bonds. Easy to get to, average return is near enough same as a typical easy access account but the possibility to win something substantial. Plus 100% safe

    There is no more chance winning if you have sequential numbers.

    What I think is most likely happening is that there is more chance of winning if you have more tickets, and those who have £50k of premium bonds are most likely those who purchased them in one lump sum, therefore it gives the impression that it's more likely to win with sequential numbers.

    I was talking at work about the minimum you can now put down on the premium bonds, which being £25 won't break the bank in building up an amount over time. 
    The maximum I think is now £50k with a half decent chance of winning a tidy sum with that amount on a regular basis. With my paltry amount it'll be a long time coming but as I'm going to buy in small amounts from now, I'll improve my chances.
    This is where my boss pointed out that when I get a decent amount of premium bonds, albeit in small amounts over time, I should cash out and buy them again immediately so I have a longer run of sequential numbers.
    He said that most winners are ones with larger amounts with a good continuous run of numbers instead of erratically scattered numbers. I know that all numbers have an equal chance of being picked but does he have a point?
    When looking at the winners list I did notice quite a few big winners had a good investment that were either for ten figures, which means the same amount in sequential numbers or they had a few thousand at a time that added to ten figures.
    Does anyone else do this to better their chances?
