    OK, bets on where the FTSE is by the end of today and end of next week(24th) and (1st)

    I reckon 5500 by end of today, 4200 by the 1st.

    Going to be carnage.

    I concur. I'm planning on buying my next tranche of shares early July.

    Between 5600 and 5700 by EOD today.

    Will I get a free BJ from Mrs MF if the prediction is right?

    5300 today, end of 5700 next week. Panic today, then next week people think again and realise it likely won't be that bad and this is a buying opportunity.

    I could be wrong, it could start to bounce back by the end of the day today. Partly depends on whether Cameron and the Chancer both resign today, or just the Chancer.

    Why would you do it now? Market's going to tank. Best to wait for a few days.

    It won't drop 30% in a week, they'd suspend trading before that.

    I can see it opening 7% down, ending the day 6%
