    Tingles got a reaction from *tada* in Gold & VAT after BREXIT   
    I'm old.
    In 1978 I joined The Bank of England and as part of our first week induction we were taken to the gold vaults as well as the fiat printing works in Essex.
    I was told that even The Queen had to keep her personal gold in the vaults, as I was holding a large gold ingot weighed about 30 pounds????
    I 'think' gold was allowed again by the first Thatcher government in the late 70's - early 80s.

    From what I’ve observed and discussed with family and friends.  Very few think it’s a ‘big thing’ and just want it finalised.  It has certainly shown the political classes in a very bad light.  I’ve consulted to some central government departments and I know how inept / inefficient they can be.  Life will go on, contrary to what the media says. I don’t think the UK will change very much.  We’ve been around over a thousand years and I’m not expecting more than a few riots until it rains - that usually stops any uprising.  Our favourite drink is tea, we don’t do revolution, the public is well controlled and more interested in celebrity gossip, a new iPhone and the royal family.

    Tingles got a reaction from SergioSena in GOLD PENSION PLANS AND 1OZ COIN PER YEAR   
    Diversification in this area is not an option for me.  She is an excellent shot (clay pigeon shooting) and she pointed out that I was a large, slow-moving target.  She held up a clay and said she's more used to 'powdering' these so she just couldn't miss - even if I zigzagged.  I took the warning.

    I personally invest in 4 sectors... a pension, precious metals, recently cryptos and a rich widow.
    The latter has been most pleasurable and rewarding.
    EDIT: and CGT exempt!

    The European Mint will give you free Monster Box(s) for the 10 oz Silver coins they sell provided buying 12 or more at one time (but you need to call them/email them to confirm before placing an order.
    BYB kindly negotiated discount code for Silver Forum Members and European Mint will price match other bullion dealers see the following thread.
    For reference the monster boxes that I have both come from the European Mint. If you remove the protective foam at the bottom of the Monster Box you can fit 27 10 oz Silver coins and even a tube of 1oz 2018 Silver Dragon Perth Mint bars. These Monster Boxes not the same regular Royal Mint Monster Boxes for 500 Britannia or 200 Queens Beasts 2 oz Silver coins.

    I enjoy the thought of a porous border for goods and services - less so for people.

    The politicians are all checking their algos to see what gives them the best chance of staying in. That is why there is so much flip flopping. It is all BS.
