    Are you worried yet.

    The Press Complaints Commission; if you feel so strongly, make a complaint although I do not see there are any inaccuracies in what was reported. It is regrettable if the witness who claimed to see Mr Cummings on 19 April 2020 is wrong but that is still accurate reporting of the allegations...

    Also, check the list of mainstream media publications that even before the pandemic were banned from Downing Street briefings.

    Are you worried yet.

    I didn't say the unpleasantness was one side or the other. Create the chaos by getting people to make sanctimonious statements on both sides and let the polarising views that follow thrive. It feels to me as though the country is the most divisive it has been since the 1980s. An unforeseen...

    Are you worried yet.

    The irony being that for the Vote Leave campaign in 2016, and for some time before that when Mr Gove's spad, Mr Cummings was creating such a land of righteous unpleasant individuals because in chaos one can mould a new form. The Machiavellian overlord is reaping what he sowed. First rule of...

    Wanderers move to Luxembourg

    They do have internet in the EU but now we control our borders your posts won't be allowed in. What is it you do @Wanderer ? I would love to leave the UK right now... or maybe just move to Durham.

    He travelled all that way to give his wife a nice day out on her birthday and was not able to show her the Silver Sean automaton: In other news, Hitler's pet alligator has died. This was one of those facts that blew my mind like every man to have walked on the moon was born in or before 1935..

    Pipe and slippes project

    I walked away from a Mantara Coupe (preferred the idea of a coupe given how poorly fitting the soft top was and no garage) at £6k back in 2001. Always had a soft spot for Marcos and the Computacenter sponsored Le Mans cars. That, a dog of a Venturi Atlantique in a basement car park in...

    Collecting cars auction

    As said above, the same fee structure for registration plates is an absolute nonsense and prevents them from getting a better sale price. Otherwise, this and The Market offer a splendid alternative to physical auction houses or Ebay.

    Significant movement on Burford Capital... I sold half my holding yesterday so that should have told you all to buy ;)

    Whilst on the wonder of words, and who better to school us than a lexicographer, here is Suzie Dent's recent tweet in light of Donald's advice on how to treat Covid-19: "While Toilet Duck and Dettol are trending, here's a reminder of the word 'ultracrepidarian': one who consistently offers...

    Given the propensity for mining shares here, I thought a Canadian miner in uranium would have been right up someone's street especially having doubled its price in the last month ;) But thanks for the background.

    Phil, is UEX in respect of UEX Corp or Urban Explorer? ODX has certainly moved today.

    Sorry for not making some of the questions clearer: a. why is the spread so much wider on some shares than others? NCYT is near 5% currently whereas RDSB has a very small spread in comparison. Is it due to volumes? What/who is driving the spread? b. I was meaning more brokers on some of the...

    Scale model engine kits

    I keep forgetting that Maplin still exists as an online only business. There are several plastic kit simulated models, was wondering if possible to spend a bit more and get a cast metal kit. The V10 engine above looks immense but not a kit and more a testament to the artisan's skill... I am...

    Scale model engine kits

    Given the long term nature of where we find ourselves, and the fact some forum members are scale model aficionados, are there any recommendations for a working, scale model engine, preferably V8? I am aware of kits costing several thousand pounds but my budget is probably several hundred.

    I thought I would ask some questions that others may be better placed to answer: a. why do some shares have such big differences in their buy and sell price? If I felt a share was particularly good value, it would not stop me purchasing and if a bear investment it probably is of little...

    You're acting to move the economy as a whole. The unemployed person will either withdraw their money and put in under the mattress or, often, will do nothing and end up more impoverished and not spending. But even with the horrific unemployment in the US, you are trying to manipulate the 80% not...
