    Brexit status ...

    I think it's up to EU to calculate 🙄 - according to the proposed agreement article 140: ARTICLE 140 Outstanding commitments 1. Unless otherwise provided for in this Agreement, the United Kingdom shall be liable to the Union for the United Kingdom's share of the budgetary commitments of the Union budget and the budgets of the Union decentralised agencies outstanding on 31 December 2020 and for the United Kingdom's share of the commitments made in 2021 on the carryover of commitment appropriations from the budget for 2020. --- 2. The Union shall calculate the amount of commitments referred to in paragraph 1 on 31 December 2020. It shall communicate that amount to the United Kingdom by 31 March 2021, adding a list with the reference key of each commitment, the associated budget lines, and the amount for each associated budget line. --- https://www.scribd.com/document/393220398/Draft-Withdrawal-Agreement-0#fullscreen&from_embed In addition to the outstanding budget commitments there's allegedly fees to be paid for pension promises for EU officials and other liabilities such as bailout loans for Ireland++

    1 Ducat gold air tite

    Air-Tite says n/a for direct fit - meaning they don't recommend any direct-fit will be suitable. 20mm ring-type T30.6 20mm Foam Ring would fit. https://www.air-tites.com/coin_size_chart.htm#austria https://www.air-tites.com/air-tite_capsule_measurements.htm

    Brexit status ...

    Thanks mate, yes they are a lucky bunch aren't they. 🙃 Funnily enough there's a fair bit of squabbling pollies here as well and the local media does their best to make it look like Canberra is a grand scale trainwreck... after the last leadership spill (Turnbull swapped for Morrison as PM) I suggested to some friends here that no-one outside Australia actually thinks Oz is any less great a nation because of this "turmoil" - and they looked at me like I had suddenly turned to a frilled-neck lizard. I truly hope the Brexit is not completely derailed. And agree that Rees-Mogg is making an awful lot of sense. Keeping fingers crossed it all ends up well for Britain 🇬🇧 and you get a clean break from EU.

    Of course they are, you're just not made aware of what goes on in the Mordor. I bet you see more news about Trump than what Juncker ("hic yes why not, do make it a double") has drunkenly stumbled around or how astonishingly low Macron's ratings are. Good grief, just look at the Guy Verhofstadt mad rant recently. It's hilarious how Trump's 'America First' is ridiculed, but no-one dares to point out that Merkel's own policy of 'Germany First' is actually bringing the EU down, the euro is wonderfully suited for Germany but disastrous for periphery nations' economies. The EU is truly and utterly vile. The EU Army that Macron and Merkel are now backing will not be used for protecting the European people from external threat, it will be used to maintain control of population internally and to make sure unruly members don't get any funny ideas about their national budgets or sovereignty of their borders.

    🎅 Christmas Prize Draw 🎅

    I'd like to be in as well please - some fun and excitement for Xmas. With luck me and @caloundracats can post swaps to each other, hehe 😅 Prize TBD - for sure it will be Australian silver 🇦🇺
  7. Hmm... this vote took place in 2003. Sweden would not benefit from the euro economically, to the contrary. They have very astutely made sure they just cannot fill the conditions set for being eligible to join. (Funny that, some countries fib their books to become eligible, some countries do the exact opposite?) Not that it matters though, 2 out of 3 Swedes polled this year would still vote no to euro. Anna Lindh was stabbed to death in an upscale department store in the middle of Stockholm - however, the killer allegedly had not targeted Lindh specifically. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Lindh#Assassination

    Flights to Brisbane

    Sorry for your loss. I'd recommend Singapore Airlines but on short notice Qantas is a good compromise between speed and cost. Check for example Skyscanner for easy comparison of your options - e.g.,: https://www.skyscanner.com.au/transport/flights/lhr/bne/181123/181201/?adults=1&children=0&adultsv2=1&childrenv2=&infants=0&cabinclass=economy&rtn=1&preferdirects=false&outboundaltsenabled=false&inboundaltsenabled=false&ref=home#results It's getting very warm - travel light. PM if anything else us Oz residents can help with.

    UK Gun Ownership

    Law-abiding gun owners seem to me in general a lot more sane than anti-gunners these days. I support NRA even though I don't even live in the USA. I suppose one could call it hedging my bets.

    Goldsilver.be refuse to send my order?

    I'm sure the inquiring minds only want to know the usernames you're having in mind... not the real names... One might be inclined to concur if it wasn't for the fact that Kleiner appears to haul from Sweden. It is 100% plausible that a Swede could - completely innocently and in full, genuine good faith - contact a vendor and attempt to negotiate ("diskutera") a situation of an unexpected shortfall of funds, and be completely and utterly perplexed about what happened with the order cancellation and the aftermath. Swedes can be like that, just look at their society and you'll notice plenty of evidence. It is equally plausible that a hard-nosed businessman such as a Belgian bullion dealer cannot fathom that someone could possibly think this way. The unfortunate rest is just irrevocable downhill, lost in translation and escalation of emotion.
  12. Looking from afar it is really difficult to see how Merkel could continue as chancellor until 2021 - yes, she has the term until that time but will she really have the political support? I like the theory she's actually vying for Juncker's seat - although I must admit I think it's high time for both of them to go. This Guy Verhofstadt clip is all I need to know about the current status of EU. 🤪 https://twitter.com/guyverhofstadt/status/1055034018897506305

    The owner sounds royally peeved, that's for sure. In worst case he'll threaten to raise a defamation/libel suit for slander and loss of income because of this thread. Try to settle asap and walk away.
