  1. Contractor uk and pistonheads mainly. I also keep checking in on TOS but mainly for the gold and BTC threads Pistonheads is ok I followed the GDPR thread on there which was very useful and I like the home mechanics section Contractor uk as I have always liked the idea of switching to contracting but never made the jump and I'm keeping an eye on the goings on there (mainly ir35 and Indian labour atm) Others include Seat and VAG forums but these are mainly for when I need a guide or help on fixing the car. DOSBODS is the only daily check in though
  2. Nuclear hasn't done so well over the same time, might have to take a look at these in the coming months. A base load of stable on demand energy will always be needed so there will (should?) always be a need for nuclear and gas imo
  3. That is an amazing stat, just shows you how many in the private sector have opted out and like you say have put faith in their home and state pension looking after them. The workforce is going to look a lot different in the not so distant future.
  4. I am sure on the credit deflation thread (may be on ToS) scs/dfs are leading indicators for a recession, the chart would say that a recession isnt on the cards... I think it could be a relief rally (I'm expecting a recession)
  5. No one cares / it's not headline news because it keeps them in the life they have become accustomed too. Keep the plates spinning at all costs!
  6. Probably the hardest poll to date!
  7. Me too, mainly for the gold and bitcoin threads. Everything else on there is just junk, I was amazed at how quick some threads deteriorated to brexit.
  8. This is what I love about this thread, I would never have found this but here it is. All angles covered, all info in one place - choose your horse!
  9. They are hit and miss I find. Middlesbrough is about £15 (roughly) Hartlepool is about £8 (again rough est) We go to hartlepool, it's cheaper and quieter. Middlesbrough one always seems to be busy
  10. I have always seen cinemas as one of those little luxuries people will pay for during a recession so they do ok in a downturn
  11. Thanks for this and the other video, now subscribed. I like the cut of his jib! and agree with MrX worth a watch
  12. Yes, it was my only miner that didnt "rubber band". Will be watching the price closely... Thanks for the heads up

    Turnover tax

    I agree but it should be like the current ir35 rules ect. Self employed are taxed 20% at source then claim back what they are owed through a tax return. These companies could report their profit margins ect to HMRC and get a rebate imo.

Not advice ect...
  15. The EE shop in the metro centre now has a BT section, maybe they wont open any new stores and instead just use the existing stores they have with EE?
