Yes, I know, we are still in the EU, hence why all the economic news is a constant stream of good news...:rolleyes:

Wondering if this was manufactured...

Several things that I was in line to start / know about have all been inexplicably delayed due to funding and business cases being stalled.

Retail sales growth boosted by clothing - BBC News (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-41330813)


UK retail sales grew by 1% in August compared with the previous month, with sales of clothing and non-essential items reported as strong.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) also said that compared with last August, sales volumes were 2.4% higher.

It was the 52nd month in a row that sales have risen.

I blame Brexit.

It is now so abundantly clear that Brexit isn't going to happen, that I might buy some more British stocks.

While you were away we decided not to talk about Brexit , it was causing a lot of fear and depression as the real truth of the decision was unfolding before our eyes, and that was just the leavers.

Please discuss other topics that are relevant to the UK like fox hunting.

Millie’s surgery cost 160g of gold.

2 years ago it would have been 200g
5 years ago it would have been 130g.

OK, in these figures I have based it on the invoice price and not allowed for inflation.
The next thing I need to do is find a methadone cost tracker to see how much it would have been 2 or 5 years ago.

Yesterday’s spot rate was £128.33 per gram, or over 4x the price of gold.
