    How much were they spending is the real question? There are some cafes renting out seating for this very reason.

    That is really bad news, I would use the place if i got into Central early, sit and ponder while sipping a latte and a slice of cake.
    Such a relaxed vibe. If true would sadly missed.

    There was always a group of upper classes that like Churchill where groomed to administrate and run parts of the empire that adopted customs of locals to gain trust but mostly power and influence. This happened very frequently in india. Lawrence of Arabia was a famous example in the middle east, but others like stjohn philby converted as well and was almost certainly an agent and involved in all sorts of skullduggery, the politically consequences of which still reverberate today.

    Churchill as a idyllic war time prime minister hero figure has over shadowed all his numerous short coming before and after.
    He's almost become mythical.
    He was a product of empire and held many grotesque view of the empires 'subjects' and even disagreed against democracy itself.
    He was never able to get over the fact he was ousted so quickly after WW2 which he saw as a stab in the back by british public. He's opinion on working class british were incredibly ungrateful.

    There no such thing as bad publicity, and it's never been so accessible.

    Brave move.. I can't get my head round this market. I've got the age where I'm constantly looking at my pension pot and wondering if I will have enough to retire on.
    So many unknowns, inflation, stock returns and annuity rates..etc.
    Still have an urge to time the market some what to maximise returns, too risky tho, probably just grind it out.

    As the saying says... time in market is better then timing the market.

    The stocks (all uk index funds) I hold are nearly all in my pension, and it's at all time high too, it's the US tech stocks that are off highs.

    I don't think the cost of living has bitten yet, and the service sector could take a dive as people cut down on luxuries, my mortgage as recently refinanced and needless to say its a significant (all uk index) rise and cut backs will have to be made. Probably true for a large proportion of the population too I suspect.
    Add high energy bills, pay rise is not going to cover it.

    When's the crash coming? Markets are approaching all time highs. Dark clouds on the horizon I suspect. But who knows, I've not been good at forecasting so far.
