I've been told off too many times for swearing or implying swearing through letter substitution to post what I would like to call it.

    Sometimes the simplest is the best, "Brexit"

    'Make Brexit Great Again'. Kinda ties in with the DT thread.

    'Disillusioned with your crappy life? Feel like venting? Then post here!'

    Although that could also be a suitable title for the 'Labour Party' thread.

    We're saving that one in case Corbyn wins the next general election.

    Once it gets to 2000 pages total, that might even be true.

    The thread where some people tell you how well their investments are doing and others use disparaging language about the poor and working classes who voted differently to them.

    Well ain't that the truth? I am glad you are taking notice. Luckily I am heavily into cash right now, expecting UK blue chips to be a nice buying opportunity soon. Also have taken a strong position in euros.

    But anyway isn't the whole idea of Brexit to improve the lot of the working classes who are being ground into the dust by our overlords in Brussels? That hasn't changed has it.

    I would call it "Brexit: Drinkinfg The Blood of Unicorns".

    Well it wasn't meant as a prompt to continue your running commentary but I'm so pleased you're doing well. The bull market won't last forever though but do keep us up to date with your portfolio when the bear market hits.

    why not stop rising to the bait and start a investment thread. I am sure there would be plenty who would join in swapping thoughts and tips.

    For instance assuming you have not simply bought €110k by what mechanism have you taken a strong position in €uro?

    It is not I who rises to bait! Shortfall did it!

    I just find it a hoot that the prophets (or profits?) of hard Brexit: e.g. Jacob RM, Arron Banks, Peter Hargreaves and Farage are money men through and through, James Dyson may have invented stuff but he is a huge landowner, been hoovering up the stuff like they ain't making it any more. When the food shortages kick in he'll be quids in and don't be fooled it's all about employing the masses on the land- that's not on the cards; Dyson is a keen roboticist. What's more, his organisation is private and pays nothing to the shareholding public or pension funds.

    Still these are the people Brexiteers admire, more fool them.

    Dyson is an arse. He only hates the EU because they forced him to make the motors on his vacuum cleaners smaller. Yet he is on tv telling us how utterly awesomely powerful his latest machines are. So which is it James? Were you wrong about the EU and the smaller motors are fine or where you right and actually you are lying about your latest machines which are presumably crap. It's one or the other James......

    Dyson electric cars will be very interesting to follow. I love seeing the P100D decimate supercars, it amazes me how Telsa can fit a 100KW battery and make it have longevity and reliability.

    The amount of government time wasted on Brexit is shocking. I would hate to monetise that!

    is a P100D an abrasive substance, a set of spanners or an angle grinder?

    why do you love seeing a supercar reduced by 10%

    Many of the posters complaining about Brexiteers are actually more intolerant and prejudiced than the people they despise. They just don't seem to know it. :roll:
    Some are just keyboard warriors though, obviously.
