    Hi have sold more than 14000 Olympic coins in the last 3 years. The other 50p's and most of the £2 are doing badly. 
    This week I am going to revamp my ebay and get rid of the ones not selling and maybe put on more stock not (silver or gold)
    I can envisage I will not have an Ebay business in a year or two unless I come up with some ideas

    Piggybank reacted to KDave in Brexit status ...   
    Sorry Pan's that is not a reflection of reality. The majority of MP's are pro-remain as demonstrated time and again by their voting, the 52/48 is not reflected in parliament in the slightest. What has happened is nothing to do with leave overreaching. It is fault of the EU trying to vassalize the UK through this treaty that May has now lost 3 times in a row, instead of treating with us with respect. If they had given concessions to Cameron we would not have wanted to leave in the first place.
    The AFD leader said it best here. Does it look like she is laughing at us?

    Piggybank reacted to Pipers in Brexit status ...   
    May has been the worst Prime Minister I can remember, if she had anything about her she should of resigned a good while ago. The Conservative Party/MP’s have acted appallingly ever since before the Cameron General election when he promised a Brexit vote to get elected but did not make any plans at all.
    I clearly remember the Leave ‘both’ stating we would have the choice of trading deals with the EU plus other countries ‘they will be queuing up’, plus ‘we will get a EU deal done by 2020. , we haven't even started yet. A lot of people voted leave because they wanted out of the EU but not out out, make no mistake, unlike a lot on here I agree to be out of the EU. I do not trust the MP’s, but I worry if we have another vote remain will win. Last time people believed the MP’s on both sides, leave was more down and dirty if there was a next time remain would be just as dirty even more so. The ‘never voters’ would be given a vote they would mostly vote to remain. The public would mainly vote the same though as in most elections its the swing voters that win plus the never voters if they turn out. The lies, untruths told are now just as easy to point out by the remain towards Leave make no mistake there are many.
     
    The one big advantage Leave has is housing for your children!!!!

    The Brexit referendum was 'allowed' with what was believed to be the full and certain knowledge the people would vote to remain. It would never have been allowed otherwise. If there had been a majority of one to remain that would have been the end of it. You would never have heard Brexit mentioned again other than in sarcastic jibes and jokes from those who believe they are our elders and betters.
    There was a glitch in the Matrix - i still do not understand it. All i can say is our mis-leaders were so deluded they misjudged it completely.
    There are many in Westminster being paid by the EU but they do not have to disclose this. The BBC is paid by the EU. The Neo-Liberal scum that inhabit the political establishment are pro-EU. They do not represent the people - well they do - the re--present our views in a completely different way - as if in a mirror. It is all back-to-front. They who support the EU are either being paid, are anti-British or do not understand this dystopic abomination. The political class have been working overtime to stall, obfuscate, trip up, detour and destroy the Brexit process. We would have been out and free more than 2 years ago otherwise.
    Only the beginning would be to just leave this European dis-Union and keep the £39 billion - we need politicians who act in the actual interests of the people. There are such political types but they are kept well away from Westminster.

    The rest of the world is not in the EU and they manage. Leave is all about leaving - completely leaving. That is what it is about. Putting the UK first in this. When people say it is extremely difficult it is an excuse for why the Neo-Liberals have spent over 1000 days dragging their feet to keep the UK in. It is code for it is too hard so better stay in the EU. It is code for traitor.

    Piggybank reacted to Pete in Prices Asked in sales   
    I think this forum is great.
    Many members are well informed and prepared to do some research so when a coin or bar is listed, the more astute members know whether or not the price is fair, good or grossly inflated.
    There was a very valid point made by Chris that requested no-one comments on the seller's price.

    Having said that I have noted more newcomers simply using the forum to advertise their stuff.
    Since there is no cost to do so, perhaps the administrators should only permit new members to list their coins on the forum after having been registered for X - months with a suggested minimum of 3 months ?
    I agree when sellers list coins at over-inflated prices - i.e. "chancers" it dilutes the appeal of the forum.
    Most of us are not stupid so why would a fellow member pay a higher price than that advertised by our main dealers ?
    I've bought a lot of coins from the forum and there are some genuine super sellers on here so hopefully this will continue and those looking to rip-off fellow stackers may decide to give up.

    Piggybank reacted to sixgun in There is NO silver shortage - Stop the myth - WHY are you still stacking silver ???   
    You started a thread about 10oz Canadian Mint bars on 10th March - (less than a week ago) - you said you were considering getting 10 of these bars. If you believe the logic of the video and that we are awash with silver, then why would you consider doing that?
    How does anyone know there are 1.4 trillion of tonnes silver in the Earth's crust? No-one can know this. Since only a tiny fraction of the Earth's crust has been tested it is just a guess, it is less than a guess.
    At current prices only a tiny fraction of the silver could be extracted - most of the Earth is covered by the oceans. What cost mining at the bottom of the Atlantic, 25 miles beneath the ocean floor and then getting the silver back to a refinery? $100's if not $1000's per ounce. Most of the Earth's silver is completely uneconomic.
    Imagine the cost of extracting the (theoretical/plucked out of thin air) average of 0.075g of silver per tonne of Earth's crust. That means you would have to sort through 414 tonnes of material to get just 1oz of silver. The cost of extracting, shifting, refining and then producing a 1oz silver coin would be many multiples of the current price. This is where this sort of video is as empty headed as those making out silver is going to shoot to $600/oz by Christmas.
    No wonder the comments have been disabled on youtube for this video - i expect it was getting a lot a flack just as it deserved.

    Britain used to be famous for its sensible common sense. This shows you how much damage has been done to that since the 90s free for all, me me introduced by Bliar and continued on by successive governments, just like The Clintons did in The US.

    Career or carer ratio of 4 to 1? Lucky kids if it's 4 to 1 carers. 
    I have no issue with children being in nursery from the age government sees fit to subsides them, this is usually at the age they can start learning. And I agree, there are plenty of children who would wholeheartedly benefit from the social interaction and gain a sense of normality as it appears many parents in the UK leave a great deal to be desired.
    But there are many who choose to send babies and toddlers to nursery when one parent could stay at home during these tender years. (of course there are exceptions such as completing a medical internship or the like within a given time otherwise no qualification is gained.) It is the aforementioned people I disagree with. Why bother having kids if they are to be off-loaded to someone else to look after for up to 10 hours a day. 
    This said extended family member's toddler is fed all her meals at nursery, all provided, including breakfast. Mother drops her off at 7 am and picks her up by 6 pm, sometimes after going to the gym, hairdresser etc. to utilise the time away from her daughter.  She says she only bathes her daughter before putting her to bed. She doesn't have to work financially but chooses to then moans that she thinks the government should pay for this care. Then tells me she has made sacrifices to buy their home - like who doesn't make sacrifices in order to get onto the property ladder. Manages to have a couple of trips away and an overseas holiday every year. What sacrifices I ask?
    I believe that the very early years of a child's life are the most important and it is beneficial in the long term if one of the parents can be with them during this time.

    Well done you @AppleZippoandMetronome for being who you are and where you are. at in life. Adversity makes some people stronger. And your mother should have lots of support but governments aren't set up to give the kind of support she needed. They only think in fiscal terms.
    I believe in the UK, the single parent benefit was set up for those women like your mother who needed to escape a bad marriage or if the husband left. or  they  were divorced. Children were in the care of their mothers and with little training or job prospects, were destitute in many cases. This was in the days when women didn't as a rule work, or had to give up work when they married, so back in the 1950/1960s. 
    It was taboo for a woman to have children out of wedlock. Society also looked down on women who were divorced. Divorced men of course still went to work and often had little to do with the children after that. So what was to become of these women and their children. The government stepped in and helped financially. Unfortunately, some girls wised up to the situation and took advantage of the government's system.
    Governments over time had allowed this system to be abused and now having children outside a stable relationship proliferates, especially amongst certain segments of society. There are also those segments of society who have more than one wife in the UK although only one is recognised in law, and so, the other women are treated by our social welfare department as single parents even if living in a combined household.
    Shame most governments are reactionary and not proactionary. Often throwing money at a problem instead of solving the problem just increases it.
