The cheap as chips wine I brought back from Le Mans last weekend has soared in value! Must be worth about 4 quid a bottle now :hyper:

And there's me panicking about visiting my sister in duckinfield on a bus with two kids in tow for the first time. What different lives we lead : :|

Average cost of raising a kid - £230,000
Cost of a Le Mans weekend - £500

Another reason for us to stick with the collies :D

Well we're taking our sweet time about doing anything, anyway. By the time it happens (if it does), everyone will have forgotten what we were on about anyway....

I think that's their secret plan to trample on the democratic will of the british people... or something like that.

It occurs that Mark Carney is going to be a difficult person to replace.

He's generally an impressive guy. Which is why it was all the more surprising when he added his voice to the doom-mongering pre-referendum. Whilst he didn't say anything strictly untrue, he didn't seem to balance it by pointing out the B of E had means to prevent the worst case scenario he was presenting. Maybe he just didn't think how the media would report it.

No but it is a very good analogy for the stability of the economy at any given point.

Too often expert opinions are taken as predictions rather than warnings. If you know what could go wrong, you can work out how to avoid it.

It's a poor analogy in that Jenga ALWAYS ends in collapse.

Antarctica? ;)

You have a point, but still, when you think of jenga, it immediately conjures images of impending and inevitable collapse. I'm not sure that's what he was going for.
