Why buy the dollar when they own a third of Australia already they even can afford to use Australian iron ore as land fill seeing that the Aussies are well up to their necks in debt to the Japs.

I think the idea is to buy something of value before Nippon implodes and debts become moot. China next.

You do have a point PB and I understand your reasoning. I am no economist but I do a lot of reading and I did a bit of research the other night on the Aus$ (as well as Canadian dollar, Norwegian Krone and SA Rand) versus the pound over the last 7 years. As the gold price was suppressed so the strengths of these currencies lost against the pound and as the gold price (and other commodity prices) have risen so these currnecies have strengthened. The point I am trying to make is that if you believe the gold price will increase further, it might be worth hanging on before converting your Aus dollars back into pounds.

Can't wind windows any more. Now you can't even fry chips. It really must have been a wonderful childhood.

Hate to cast aspersions but did your mummy have a woefully mis-spent youth as well?

She never drank before 9am and never pints she always sent her driver to pick us up from school plus only smoked tipped fags so I would say no.
