So over a 5 year period, gold has delivered an approximate 5% per annum return and if you had bought 5 years ago and not reacted to the market, silver would leave you back where you started.

Actively trading gold over that period, presumably that return could be nearly doubled. 5% return on an annuity of £1 million would be fine (I could comfortably live off that), but gold is never going to transform someone's life if they only have £10-20k to invest. Or am I missing something?
Nothing is going to transform your life if you only have £10-20k to invest.....as FC mentioned and I don’t remember suggesting it would.

How does that 5% pa you quote compare with deposit rates- bloody good I would suggest.

I was merely pointing out the situation that existed in FEB 2016 (due to Brexit)...that’s a bit more than 5%pa and I didn’t have the benefit of hindsight..........

She is always full of bs, is Carole. In this one she conveniently ignores the multiple other more sensible contributing factors to the EU referendum result.

As. We have seen two sides to every story and both sides were guilty of telling lies.

I'll give the lady her due, it can't be easy moving from journalism to stand-up comedy but at least she tried. I wonder if the editor let her have her old job back?

Wow just listened to that and very interesting.
I will wait to see what Wattie has to say.
Got bored with it after 8 minutes. All Facebooks fault from what I can gather....illegal this, illegal that, targeted fake ads blah blah blah. was hoping she's take a face plant.

At the same time 16million were getting constantly bombarded with telepathic "Remain" messages from this plonker, Euri Geller, so id say it was evens stevens.

An interesting perspective on Ebbw Vale I thought, loads of EU money to regenerate and still one of the largest leaver vote based on the EU has done nothing for me - really?

A hospital and a college, perhaps they think they should still have a viable steelworks?

In other news....

NIGEL Farage's new Brexit party could WIN the European elections as voters punish the Tories for the ongoing chaos around Leaving the EU.
Fresh polling from YouGov puts the top Brexiteer's new party ahead of Labour and the Tories on 27 per cent!!!

Mays gonna have to resign.......15%!!! They're running out of cash too as donations dry up!

Apparantly it could take MONTHS to Pass the "withdrawal deal" legislation even if May managed to get it through at the 4th attempt.....it is open to amendments and in/exclusions that Europe may not approve of.

Explain this.....
The UK’s commissioner Sir Julian King will take the reins of the Eu over the Easter break as the most senior Brussels boss on duty — suggesting EU chiefs knew Britain would never leave on March 29!!!
He was rostered at the end of 2018!!
