    Left wing journalists appeal to prejudice rather than logic in order to fool the gullible.

    Just picked this one up from Australian eBay. It's the 1918 Canadian sovereign (mintage 106,570) and the third in my Canadian sovereign collection.

    Beautiful little piece today, the 2014 brittania lunar horse "mule" obverse error unrecognised by NGC, early release so guessing before the error was discovered, kind of an error in an error

    I’ve been looking for a decent 1821 sixpence for a while. They’re not massively rare but it is difficult to find one in goodish condition. This arrived today and I am extremely happy with it. It’s a dirty little coin but cleaning terrifies me and so it’ll be going into the collection as is.
    if anyone does have any thoughts on cleaning, please can you let me know off thread?

    Immigration was the biggest reason for voting leave according to polls, not everyone but it's the main reason. The UK population has always been against mass immigration according to every opinion poll since forever, they have always been for controlled immigration. They didn't vote for it but got it anyway and are still getting unlimited numbers. Last year was the highest immigration figures in the last 15 years.
    Freedom of movement isn't even the biggest source, but leaving the EU was the only option people were given to express their long held opinion. Voting for the 'tough against migrant' Tories has resulted in record levels of immigration, the whole democratic system is a joke. So people voted to break it. The leave vote was and still is a symptom of the problem imo. It's not going away.

    Reminds me of the time whilst visiting friends in Croatia where they found a thick glass bottle with a clear fluid which was left in their shed. Thinking it was alcohol, they offered it first to my wife but I stopped her from touching it. Our friend with a bit of bravado behind him took a swig but immediately spat it out and turn a funny colour along with his mouth burning.
    It was a bottle of battery acid and it blew his gums away!

    Last time I was in Ballina I had the good fortune of sampling a 1/2 bottle of Poitin, pure pot still whiskey, that my friend found under the floorboards of an old cottage he bought, he reckons it was there for about 40 years...nearly blew the gums off me.

    A bit of a difference with giving an incorrect figure in Switzerland, leading to overturning a referendum, with brexit, where the arguments were more on things that could or could not be true, and neither side could actually see the future.
    And before anyone starts banging on about the bus. If you actually knew your facts, there is nothing in that bus that was a lie. We do send that money to Brussels, and although we get some of it back as a rebate, everyone knows that a rebate can be stopped. And you have to think why did the EU give us a rebate, instead of just making our payments smaller, because a rebate is temporary that's why. And with the EU getting rid of a countries veto in 2020, that rebate would have been stopped and there would be nothing we could have done about it. 
     
    Anyway back to this story, no doubt the remainers will be creaming their underwear with this story, but if they tried to cancel the referendum here, they'd better be prepared for UKIP/Brexit party/Tory coalition for decades to come. 
    It only takes about 3O% of the vote to put a party into government, there are around 48%-52% of voters who are brexiteers. Just create a few websites on tactical voting and the jobs done
