    Well my brother is now sitting pretty so what a punt! Good on him for having the balls to have a go 4 years ago. ( PS But he was the FD for a big Bank in the City for a while so his background may have helped). ;)

    Well my brother took a punt on Bitcoin in 2017 and invested £20k and bought 7 Bitcoins. At today's price they are now worth £274k!!

    Get yourself a 'Ring'Camera system or similar. You can buy a whole system for around £800 which is probably a similar price to a decent safe. The external cameras can also come with spot lights and sirens for a bit more money. All linked to your smart phone and recorded on a cloud server.

    Brexit Deal

    Yep I think I came across something like this. I think Jaeger ( now owned by M&S) get all their gear made in Portugal. Portugal and Italy were the best places to get suits made back in the 80's.

    Brexit Deal
