TheRegalOne reacted to BackyardBullion in Windsor Mint - horrendous product and marketing skills...
One of the perks of daytime telly....
This does not seem like a good marketing strategy....or a good product come to mention it.
Not even precious metal - just "layered" with 24ct gold....

It has killed 100.000.000 people but hey, this time it will work, promised.
Socialism is an euphemism for slavery. As effectively the top functionaries OWN everything, nobody else owns anything. (Owership means you can do whatever you want with your property. Despite some legal distinctions, effectively, the top functionaries own everything.)
Apart from that, socialism means to put upmost emphasis on equality. If everything was completely equal, you could not distinguish individual things from each other. If that was the case, no individual things would exist. Perfect socialism means nothing would exist, so there would be the big nothingness. Socialism therefore is the denial of being. It's therefore another word for satanism. Satan too hates the creation and wants to destroy it.
Socialism always wants to make everything completely equal, destroy the family, art, religion and even moaning for an individual. It has been outlined in utopic writings in similar ways for many centuries (e.g. "Utopia") and was practiced millennia ago (e.g. in ancient Egypt) back then not known under this term. Read the Socialist Phenomena by Igor Shavarevic who wrote this book in the USSR and unrevealed what Socialism really is.

The country is bankrupt, they have all the guns and make all of their rules.
The people are compliant and believe much of the propaganda. i see intelligent people on the forum who believe it, i'm not just talking about the currency systems i'm talking about all the lies were are sold and demanded we believe. i believed a lot once upon a time, others just aren't ready yet i suppose. Things are not going to change at the moment, perhaps they never will. We can swap out paper for gold and silver. We probably shouldn't draw attention to it - just quietly carry on.
The real crime is that in the days when the promissory notes were real, the banks were very careful about lending money, b/c they really were lending money. Now they create it on computers.
i go into a bank - i apply to for a 'loan' - i fill out the forms promising to pay this and that at this and that rate. i sign it. i create the promissory note which inside their legal system shall be treated as cash (Lord Denning). i just created the currency - not the bank. These are bundled together and securitised. They are traded. i created the currency by way of the note and the bank took it as a 'gift' and sold it. Then conned me into thinking they lent me the currency. i am the creditor and the bank the debtor. This is where the securitised mortgages come from - we are told about these never thinking what it means. The bank sells these and are simply administrators but if you stopped paying them they would throw you out your home.
So we have this, fractional banking and fiat currency. The scam is off the charts. When you mix in greed and the lust for power it is a recipe for disaster which is why we are on the brink of disaster. It defies all rhyme and reason that such a caper could be allowed but those who are allowing it are criminals themselves and the people believe it is alright and is what is essential for a growing economy.
There is some deluded idea that those in high power get themselves in these positions to help the people. They don't and if they started out that way most are corrupted. The most corrupt and perverted make it highest up the ladder - they can be controlled and blackmailed. The most ruthless are those that make it further up the pyramid of power. i try to keep out of the system as much as possible these days.
TheRegalOne reacted to BackyardBullion in European Mint Group Orders are back for 2020!
European Mint Group Orders are back for 2020!
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS IT DETAILS HOW THE GROUP ORDER WORKS INCLUDING DEADLINES AND COSTS OF SHIPPING.
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE JUST ASK.
GENERAL INFO ON THE GROUP ORDERS
What are the group orders all about?
In the UK we have to pay VAT of 20% on silver. However, there are dealers in different countries where the rate of VAT is lower or even 0% (like Estonia where the European Mint are based).
But to take advantage of this 0% rate you would have to pay for international shipping, which often makes it not worthwhile.
In summary the "Group Orders" are a collective buying group and we pool together to share the cost of shipping (more on the prices of this later).
This saves buyers money - which is a good thing!
One of the negatives to the group orders is that to make them work properly we need to have monthly shipments. This can mean that if you place your order early into a month you might be waiting 4-5 weeks for your silver to arrive.
Rest assured that everything you order will arrive, but it does take extra time.
If you want to have your silver sooner, I would recommend ordering directly and having your order shipped directly to you.
Why are we using The European Mint?
I have been using and working with The European Mint for over 3 years now. I have always found them to be an excellent company and they often have very competitive (if not the cheapest) prices out there. I find the quality of their service to be exemplary.
They do not have as wide a stock variety as some other competitors - but what they do, they do very well indeed.
What do we (Backyard Bullion) get out of these group orders?
We (Backyard Bullion) do not receive any commission from the use of this code with the European Mint.
We are able to take advantage of group buying ourselves and have discounted shipping on items that we buy...
But the main benefit to us is that we get to do a large unboxing on YouTube. This allows us to earn some money through YouTube and also helps to grow our channel and audience on YouTube.
Any other financial benefits to us are done so on a voluntary basis with people who join in via "Tips" or a "voluntary service charge".
These tips go towards a large Takeaway when we have processed the large deliveries!
How to join the group orders?
How the new group orders will work?
This is a general summary of how a group order will work:
1) You place an order with the European Mint directly.
2) During the checkout process you will need to apply the following code "BYBGROUPORDER" This code gives you a massive €0.01 discount on your order - but more importantly allows the EU mint to identify group order orders.
3) Select the "Add orders to storage" option on the shipping section.
4) Message me here on the forum (or via email to email@example.com) with your order summary (ideally a copy of your invoice).
5) We (Backyard Bullion) then will offer a free service of arranging delivery of your items. We will instruct the courier to pick up your order(s), deliver them to us and we will then distribute like we have with previous group orders.
6) This service is FREE. However we will, of course, still have to bill you for shipping. The courier costs from the EU Mint to us will be the same rate as before (1.2% of the order value) and will be passed on to you as a disbursement cost. The UK postage will be the same as previous group orders and I will cover those in more detail later in this thread.
So that is basically how these group orders will run!
NO MORE WEEKEND ONLY ORDERS!!
You can order at any time, it does not have to be on the weekends.
What can I order and does it include Pre-order items?
You can order anything on the EU Mint website. However, you may notice that the European Mint have a significant number of items that seem "in stock" but are in fact pre-order. These items are usually sourced to order by the EU mint and as such take about 2-3 weeks to arrive with them. So, feel free to order these items but be aware that your entire order cannot be delivered to me and subsequently to you until those orders have been received by the EU Mint.
If there is something in particular that you are interested in buying and are not sure about, please ask me or the EU mint directly!
Monthly deliveries & weight thresholds
The way we envisage these orders working is that at the end of each month we will have a dispatch of all orders which can be fulfilled. So, if you place an order for pre-order items you may have to wait until the end of the following month for your orders. This could be as much as a 6 week wait. You have been warned.
However, we will also be shipping items that are ready to go if/when certain weight/value thresholds are met. This will allow us to get orders out sooner and not have 60kg+ parcels to process!
So there are no deadlines to order, you can order whenever you want. We (EU Mint) and I will keep you all as updated as possible about estimates for delivery of your order(s)
General Terms and Conditions
1) I (Backyard Bullion) cannot take financial responsibility for lost/damaged items that are part of this group order.
2) You agree that I (Backyard Bullion) will act as an agent on your behalf to arrange and pay for a courier to pick up your orders.
3) Backyard Bullion can only dispatch your order upon successful delivery from the European Mint and only upon payment of a separate postage invoice.
4) Any loss or damaged item claims will be initiated and managed by me (Backyard Bullion) and any payouts for claims can only be made upon the successful payout from said claim. Backyard Bullion cannot be held financially responsible for any unsuccessful claims.
5) You are liable for any and all taxes/import duties that may be applied to your order for your home country of delivery.
Delivery from me to you
This part is essentially identical to previous group orders.
How do I get my coins from Backyard Bullion?
We will send you an invoice which will include the cost of your share of international postage (1.2% of your orders value) and your options for postage from us to you.
Here is a quick guide as to what the onwards postage costs will be - this is subject to change where appropriate and is meant to give you a guide as to the costs of postage only.
Please note that the maximum that you can send via Royal Mail Special delivery for a decent price is 2kg (about 55 oz).
If you would like to order more than this please get in touch to discuss shipping options.
****Please also note that there is NO PRECIOUS METALS INSURANCE on any royal mail service other than Special Delivery****
What happens in the event of an issue with delivery?
We (Backyard Bullion) cannot be held financially responsible for the loss/damage of any items in this group order. The European Mint has insurance for their parcels but I have never had to put a claim in and I do not know how likely it might be that something is refunded should it go missing in transit. There is an intrinsic risk in ordering from any international company but I am confident that we will be able to resolve anything that might happen. Please bear this in mind before joining the order.
It is important to note the above terms and conditions and re-iterate that joining this order is at YOUR OWN RISK. I cannot be held responsible if items are lost/damaged when arriving from the European Mint.
Should there be any issues I will of course endeavour to work with the dealer to solve them, but I cannot guarantee a resolution.
Delivery from me to you is of a postage method of your choosing. As I have mentioned above there is no precious metals insurance for anything other than Royal Mail Special Delivery. In the event an order is missing or damaged any insurance claims will be made by me (Backyard Bullion) and refunds can only be paid upon successful completion and payout from Royal Mail. In the event that a claim by Royal Mail is denied I cannot be held financially responsible.
OUR SERVICE IS FREE
It is important to re-iterate that the service that we (Backyard Bullion) are offering is completely free and do not take or receive a commission for these group orders.
Tips and donations
You are more than welcome to make a community donation at any time if you see fit - just let us know if you want to. Any community donations will go a long way to buying a slap up takeaway for Mrs BYB every month!
However, the best way you can support us would be via our Hand Poured Silver which we can offer discounts on to combine with your group order parcels.
Have you got any questions?
If you have any questions or would like any more information then please don't hesitate to ask here or via PM.

GROUP ORDER UPDATE!!
We have good and bad news!

We are currently working on a group order like times of old to be open as soon as Brexit happens and we go onto the transition period.
In theory this should be 1st February!
TheRegalOne reacted to KDave in Brexit status ...
Good to hear from you @Lowlow, now that we have Boris as PM I am hoping he pulls a fast one on the EU and starts playing hardball with them. He can get virtually anything through parliament now, I think the intention is to remove 'can't leave without a deal' from law and implement a 'default no deal December 2020' as the new negotiating position, that should focus a few minds in the EU. Second referendum is off the table for good now.
The Conservative Manifesto read as a so called Hard Brexit, which means they are lying to someone, either the EU with the current deal they have arranged, or the public by promising something they have no intention to deliver. We will see which one it is, likely a middle ground with a better deal once the EU comes back to the table for fear of no deal leading to the choice of financial collapse or higher taxes on the French (good luck) and Germans.
TheRegalOne reacted to Lowlow in Brexit status ...
This is the first chance I've had since the UK election, and I just wanted to say that I'm so happy that you have had such a decisive election, and to also congratulate you for fighting back against all the powers who were arrayed against you to regain your own sovereignty. I have been really interested in your politics for the past few years and I think it is great that you are all on the same page and that your government has a mandate to finish Brexit.
So again, congratulations, from across the ocean, we in the states have been watching with great interest and wish you all well. I'm overjoyed for all of you and excited about your future and the future of our countries together. Your victory is inspiring to us all.
TheRegalOne reacted to KDave in UK General Election 2019
This was another very good speech on Brexit, the day before the election. I think he nails the Brexit issue; remain knows the cost of leaving but does not see the value, where as Leave understand the value of leaving and the cost is secondary, hence why it is so polarised. Two sides starting from different positions.
TheRegalOne reacted to Airhead in Silver Monitoring Thread £ (GBP) only.
A company in Estonia. I would never buy silver from the UK, why pay silver + margin + vat? Buying from the EU has saved me in the region of £1200 in vat. To me, and not wishing to engage in a polemical rant here, but the imposition of vat on silver is just a way of denying the less well off a way of accumulating real wealth, and I’ll be buggered if I will play thier game. So it’s a loss to the exchequer and more silver for me.

TheRegalOne reacted to Pete in UK General Election 2019
As hopefully a Chinese steel manufacturer will save British Steel AGAIN I have at the back of my mind ( not researched the facts so open to correction ) concerns.
We in Britain manufacture some of the finest quality and specialist steels in the world.
Even the USA military buy some of this because it is unbeatable quality.
HOWEVER this industry is crippled by the EU prohibiting cheaper energy ( one would say subsidised ) to our steel industry.
I think France and Germany, maybe Italy as well get around these EU rules which we as good members of this crackpot club rigorously abide by.
Then we have a major project, say building a couple of ships, requiring skilled labour and lots of steel.
Rather than grant these contracts to British shipbuilders and specify the use of British steel, the government or contractors have their hands tied and have to go to open tender in the EU.
Surprise, surprise, the Germans win the contracts and our skills are lost, people moved into working for fast food outlets and our famous yards forced to close through lack of long term British funded contracts.
How many nuclear power plants will be built by us Brits after inventing the nuclear reactor ?
We might get to pour concrete and lay roads but the stuff at the sharp end is foreign.
We will rely on the French, Chinese and South Koreans who carried on with our original work and developed a strong technology base whilst we decimated ours.
The first OLED technology and basic screens were developed in Cambridge, UK and manufacturing licences sold for short term personal gain but a pittance, and the serious bucks go to China and Korea who build millions of flat screen TVs using robots - why not here ?
The cost of running factories filled with robots must be very similar but what stops an entrepreneur investing in a £500 million factory in the UK ?
How many supersonic jets ( remember the TSR-2 that labour killed ) will be built in Britain to fly from our new aircraft carrier currently void of aircraft after we sold ( or gave away ? ) our Harriers to the yanks ?
Government should think long term and out of the box but it will not because the electorate are bribed into freebies and immediate benefits not future security.
Invest in new technology, encourage entrepreneurs, raise the skill set by appropriate training and education that isn't all about football studies or studying episodes of Dr. Who.
Subsidise the high tech industry, if necessary, to stimulate it and to keep people in jobs - however that doesn't apply to flogging a dead horse.
We have got to think long term - maybe 10 - 20 years ahead time frame; not 12 months as Vulture Capitalists and Greedy Banks stipulate.
