    Firstly I thought that the new government under Rajoy would choose to leave the Euro. I have no idea if they came close to doing so, but they didn’t.
    Secondly, I thought that the housing bubble in London and the south-east of London would have burst by now. It didn’t – indeed the UK government is now busily trying to inflate it still further..

    London is an anomaly. There is no bubble elsewhere, although prices are not rising much. They have fallen since a few years ago, but in my area (Berkshire) I would say that they are about where they were 5 years ago now.

    Well thank -yee!!
    Can’t divulge too much at the moment – like all purchases it could fall over at the last moment if someone comes in with a better offer. But… I’ve looked over the business (and its competitors) and agreed a very good fee to take it over. Currently back in the UK tying up loose ends, and trying to sort out suppliers. All being well I’m back in Madrid in September getting up to speed on how to run the place, and starting up a publicity campaign.

    Lots of things but I just tell myself its happenings have moved up in time a little.

    1. A few countries would have left the euro by now.
    2. US dollars would have lost its place as the only world reserve currency.
    3. Would be living forever with my ex. “Replaced her with a newer and better model”.;) not my decision though.
    4. Obama would not wage wars and be much better than Bush.
    5. Fiat money would be misstrusted by everyone.
