    What sort of hardship is that? Yes they have to get a visa like everywhere else, I believe it will cost 7euros or about £5.50. This is even less than first world problem.

    bluemoon got a reaction from Derv in Free security upgrade from the council!   
    I've been noticing cameras outside of homes too. It might respect passers by more to have them pointed no further than their drives or rear gardens. As for police, it's a toss up between how safe they actually keep us with all this surveillance Vs what we lose from it. Given that London is one of the most heavily CCTV'd cities in the world and yet have nothing like the lowest crime rates, the cameras clearly don't help all that much. It might be best to rethink their prevention strategies and come up with something else.

    Is the fair more for coin collectors, or are their bullion deals to be had? I'm rubbish at haggling but if their are competitive prices on coins like Sovereigns then I might have a look.

    It was 52%/48% with London weighing the Remain vote heavily. Not to say Londoner's votes count less, but it did distort the national view a lot.
    By region, the split is 270/129 or 68%/32% for Leave.

    Farage got milkshaked today. It's such childish reflection on British politics that it's almost tradition here to do that sort of thing. Milkshake, eggs and what have you. Where is the intellect? If the people who do or like it think it makes the politician look bad or embarrasses them in any way, then those people they have very poor self awareness.

    bluemoon got a reaction from kimchi in Sovereigns from Harrington & Byrne.   
    I called them to enquire about the offer. The woman swiftly tried upselling to convince me to forget the offer altogether and go for their proof coins instead at double the price. She was really in hard sell mode too about how much better investments they are. If that's a taste of things to come if I buy from them, then I think I'll pass. I don't need a discount that badly. It came off very sleazy.

    bluemoon got a reaction from BackyardBullion in Free speech   
    Trolling is a form of freedom of speech but it is a very unproductive use of it, to the point of disrespecting freedom of speech. I just wish people were more responsible with it. And no, I'm not talking about all the PC nonsense these days. I mean real, sinister, toxic trolling and bullying. We had one such person on here a couple of weeks ago and thankfully they were banned. Yes they arguably should have a legal right to troll, but forum moderators should also retain the right to ban them if their presence and use of their freedom of speech is toxic.

    bluemoon got a reaction from dicker in What is the best size gold to stack?   
    Yep, any plans on QB's being a future premium to cash in later is merely taking a punt. If you stack for financial stability then near spot spot PMs are still the ones.

    bluemoon got a reaction from EdNug in Anybody speculating with silver mining shares?   
    Two of the big miners are Newmont Goldcore and Barrick. I don't know if them being big means it's bad because less upside or good because more stability. I'll look into the ones you mentioned @EdNug. I'm researching how to buy shares in mining companies (never bought shares before), and I found a platform called Hargreaves Lansdown which has those miners on their platform. It would be nice if I could just go to my own bank like Barclays and buy shares via them, but I don't think it works that way.

    bluemoon got a reaction from caloundracats in I just bought the cheapest house in France?   
    That point unfortunately gets lost in all the political arguing. Europe is a lovely continent with a rich and diverse set of cultures, languages and history which took thousands of years to evolve. It would be a shame to lose it so quickly to open borders and monoculturalism (the true end state of 'multicultural' mass immigration).

    bluemoon got a reaction from Pampfan in How has the Silver Forum changed your buying habits/ collecting of precious metals and coinage   
    Group orders for VAT free silver was the biggest change. Although I once saw an established bullion dealer with their prices all wrong, some coins even under spot, and so even adding the VAT, it was like buying VAT free silver for me. I front loaded on that one! But group orders and a feeling of community are the biggest changes here. Very nice too. Oh and much fewer SHTF doomsdayers than on the Kitco forums.

    I was wondering about this too. Call me overprotective but I don't like giving my personal address to overseas bullion dealers (especially if it were the GoldSilver.be people). So if I just put in a business address with the EU Mint for the invoices, can I just then DM you my actual delivery address like we used to with the old group orders?

    One of the benefits of being a boring old sod like me is that you don't waste your time on this sort of thing. I deleted my Facebook four years ago and I don't miss it, the novelty was fine in 2008 but it wore off and became very tedious. I realised I don't actually care what anyone had for breakfast this morning, and I'm confused why they assume I'd be interested to see it!

    What this does show is that the red tape has gotten people who are straight as a dot, wound up so tightly that they're worried about breathing the wrong way lest they get grief from Big Brother.

    I would volunteer to take over but I'm not part of the forum furniture enough yet to justify the trust required, nor would I expect otherwise.
