    Could / would you come to Soho? We have a regular need to transport stuff from Soho to Crewkerne. (If that’s on the way)

    Right to buy effect I London cannot be understated, although it might have felt expensive in the 1990s, subsequent events will have eliminated those mortgages.

    That’s is 100% correct. I don’t fully follow the whole LDI trade, but it seems clear that “juicing up” pension returns is an insane strategy, even if the black swan event is highly remote. Pensions Regulator approach needs an inquiry.

    Another theory is that it was Putler who ordered the pipelines blown. He knows the war is lost, and risks being overthrown by internal forces. But those internal forces would need a peace offering to persuade The EU to persuade Ukraine to stop fighting for their liberation. He knows that the EU is resolved not to use the gas, and that the Norway/Denmark/Germany pipeline was rushed through to open last week, so his blackmail over “technical closures” is worthless. He risks that a new leader can offer to the EU to turn back on the gas for a ceasefire and peace talks. Blowing up the pipeline means no pretender to the throne can offer that as a peace offering, and that reduces the chance of being over thrown.

    The annexation thing today is definitely to allow them to claim any attack on “Russia” (as newly enlarged) allows him to escalate.

    Assuming that a “penalty charge” for excess speed would be a magistrate court appeal, I think any lawyer worth his salt could get the fine cancelled on the basis that cyclists do not have speedometers and therefore cannot be held accountable for their speed to any reasonable standard. However, for personal injury cases, speed may be used as a contributing factor, I suppose as now. IANAL

    Because he lives in California which has a top state marginal income tax rate of 13.3% versus the U.K. where it’s 45%?

    I appreciate there are more factors that go into an individual’s tax rate, but in my experience wealthy tax residents of the USA are generally taxed at a lower rate than in the U.K.
