    There is a $3.4 trillion superannuation pot, bigger than the entire value of the Australian stock exchange.

    and this discussion people ^.....is a graphic example of why the UK is fudged. Divide and rule....tell the peasants it's the other peasants who are bringing them down. Meanwhile in the real world, Odey Asset Management have betted against the UKP and last week all bankers were shorting against it....just as they did in 2008-09 and 2016 from which the country has done nothing but decline economically. Odey's stock rose 145% last week by betting against the country.....there are hundreds of millions of pounds there.

    a genius writer. I didnt have time to read anything until a few years ago, I've still not seen Wolf Hall but the books are amazing. 2 Booker prize winners and a long list nomination for a trilogy is unheard of.

    about to get a lot worse in the UK, absolute economic suicide for the next generation to pick up. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-63009173 Pound sinks as investors question huge tax cuts

    I've noticed a lot of the supermarkets over here are now run by ex-pom supermarket execs just copying the UK model.......blitz you with constant special offers so nobody has an idea of the true price of anything. We're almost at the point of only buying special offers and then stocking up on them; we have cupboards full of coffee and tea bags etc. The money we save we spend on local suppliers fresh goods to keep the local economy going.

    I guess the way to end the monarchy would be for William to bugger off to California as well. I sometimes think he looks as if he'd quite like to, but his wife seems as if she'd really like to be Queen.

    Sorry mate, I'm not a Royalist so don't bother with stuff like this, and I obviously can't remember as far back as you can, it was 70 years ago after all! Suffice to say though, it's a bit weird having a King who's now too old to do much and a bloke half his age kicking his heels when he should be getting on with freshening the place up.

    He'll be alright. It's probably also fair to say though, that he could have been King a long time ago if the circumstances had been better in his personal life. Was the initial plan not for Charles to become King when he was 40 and allow the Queen to abdicate in her mid-60's so we had a fresh King and younger line of succession coming into the job in the prime of their lives? He was public enemy No 1 for a long long time and unacceptable as King, which is allegedly why the Queen decided she had no option but to carry on. As we can now see, the Queen was right and time is a great healer.....but it's caused the same issue for Prince William. If Charles lives as long as his own parents, he could have another 20 years making Prince William 60! Is he meant to just kick his heels throughout the prime of his life like Charles did? Not sure they would remain relevant in today's world, especially within the Commonwealth.

    We can't mention that word on here, to spare the blushes of the guilty. Who weren't wrong

    it's funny what you remember. For Charles and Di we were in the Dordogne watching someone's portable TV through one of those clear plastic tent windows.
