madhatters, I have backed 4 National winners but it took me from the early 60s up to Seagram for my first followed by Minnehoma, Numbersixvalverde and Ruler of the World. That was almost 30 years waiting for the first one. Sad

"As far as I am concerned this thread has always looked deeply into the meaning of life"

Nobody knows but this is where I'm up to so far, no offences intended

1 Darwinism is no more probable than Kipling's Just-so stories, mathematicians have declared it IMPOSSIBLE
2 Jesus Christ probably didn't exist, the whole story being an invention of the Romans, BUT it's still the Greatest Story Ever Told - the birth of a child, belief in god/gods and personal sacrifice.
3 The history of human beings and of the Earth, as taught, is very wrong
4 The Universe may be a machine for creating consciousness
5 Betting on horses is an absorbing and exciting pastime
Report salmon spray October 15, 2021 11:12 AM BST
I would agree with 5 most of the time.
I wouldn't exactly disagree with the other 4 but they are obviously open to various interpretations.

de Vere is more commonly known as the Earl of Oxford and is the most popular candidate to have been " Shakespeare " but I'm afraid I think Will existed and wrote most of the plays attributed to him. There are parts of some of the lesser plays which were clearly written by hacks like Beaumont and Fletcher but probably not by aristos.

In our modern world a talented and creative artist from the provinces certainly could, with the help of a dozen or so researchers and with facts and insights readily available online, write convincingly of the law, the arts and high society but 400 years ago was that possible?

The Uk is bankrupt. The Americans saved the pound from collapse in April of last year. In return they demanded we send the Royal Navy to the Black Sea and to the South China Sea.
Yesterday, Bill Gates, Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan and other American financial giants visited Downing Street. These are very busy people,they dont cross the Atlantic to discuss a deal of just £400 million as the media would have us believe. The United Kingdom is now a kept nation, controlled by others.

At the height of the Suez crisis it was 4 dollars to the pound.
The Americans told us to get out of Egypt or they would destroy the pound.
Today the pound is 1.37ish,the american's have had influence on UK policy
ever since 1956.

Yes, that rings true, MW. And tbh 1.37 imho is remarkably high. I think it can only go down.

On September 13th 2019 the Lebanese found the banks were closed. When they re-opened 3 weeks later their money had lost over 20% of its value. Over the next few months it dropped further.
100 million Lebanese lira had until 13/09/2019 been worth $66,000, it's value continued to drop quickly until it settled at $5,000.
A bank deposit is an unsecured loan that you have made to the bank.

In 2013 Cypriots found that their government had taken between 7% and 10% of their bank deposits to help rescue the public finances. A subsequent legal challenge by the unhappy depositers failed.
