    Martlet got a reaction from Serendipity in How Many People Own Gold?   
    Are we counting jewellery?  In that case majority probably own some gold.  Bullion only a small proportion in UK, probably some more in Europe.

    Or, enough Labour votes without the DUP, should they vote against or less if they dont vote at all. 
    As I read them, the DUP are using very flexible, open ended language and they are people who know exactly what to say or not.

    By using word like treason and traitor your shutting down the debate. These words are signals that you believe that you’ve got the under hand in the debate but this narrows your argument.

    Apart from iron, aluminium, copper... actually most metals have more uses than gold, because they can be alloyed and are cheap for common use. Gold's main use is jewellery and its value.  Dont see any gold pots, hammers or engine blocks.

    Trouble is people don't seem to want to give negative feedback.  I have seen clearly dodgy sellers get feedback saying everything is fine or even "Coin copy, got refund" with positive.

    No point getting hung up on Miller, she is just a figurehead.  If not her someone else would have picked up the torch, there's many millions feeling very strongly about both sides.

    I expect the context is that the US shows how unwell free market health care works.  The US spend about 75% more than highest European countries for worse health outcomes.  Whatever you may think about it politically, its defiantly not efficient in any sense.

    Its not an either or situation.  The government govern within the laws made by parliament, the judiciary intervene where there is a question if law was followed. 
    And again, the court has not stopped the government from following any policy, only they cannot close parliament in the run up.

    You could point to the constitutional law that shows the government acted correctly and i will happily concede.  The government might be interested too.  The constitution (such as it is in this country) is still a legal matter.

    Likewise anything claims to help everything from arthritis to viruses, to HIV, to cancer cant work.  Nothing works on everything, different biology and mechanisms at work.   There might be some medicinal benefit in some areas, though its homeopathy at heart so dubious.

    Interesting argument, the court is biased because it has a different view to the political Attorney General.  Maybe he was wrong, and biased in his advise?
    The court has found in favour of the argument that parliament is sovereign and the Prime Minister did not act lawfully in closing it.  It does not stop the process of Brexit, up to the PM to get on with a deal parliament agrees with.

    Sounds like you lose "new year" premium when selling next year and beyond, so unless collecting for date run get a random year.  And if you are looking at date run, look to get 2019 in a year or two time.

    Sure, they have a chap who run down to the press and pushes a button on request for each return.   What do they take us for?  Be sure to email to senior management with the photo and complain, shocking failure of the process anything like this should get off the production line.
