    Default So countries default etc...

    What's it actually mean to me or any other guy on the street? I'm personally debt free, I'll probably work till I die but what I do isn't like work anyway.

    I can afford my lifestyle is that likely to change drastically? Should I care? Should I fck off somewhere else?

    Yes.

    Start here: http://www.britishairways.com
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    China will buy Europe for forty quid and we'll all have to learn Mandarin.

    Greece defaults > Panic ensues > The cost of borrowing for other countries who were just about keeping above water soars > They default too (In the meantime, banks are going under) > It's 2009 all over again except this time Europe's at the centre of it instead of the US.

    'Cos Mervyn will fire up the printing presses again in a vain attempt to keep our massively exposed banks afloat, inflation will become rampant and we'll be plunged into another depression. I plan on buying a house just before this happens, so my mortgage will be inflated away

    Buy gold. And tinned food. And houses.
