Government will fund cost of replacing unsafe cladding for all leaseholders 6 storeys and over

When a conservative MP (Stephen McPartland) tweeted the following it sums the whole sorry mess up: “It is a betrayal of millions of leaseholders. It is not good enough. It is shocking incompetence."

Good to diversify no doubt Question Everything so Bitcoin is a decent bet, as is gold and silver. I've been stocking up over the past couple of years, alongside physical precious metals ETFs and miners. Think all of these will do well as the proverbial hits the fan over the coming months and probably years!... Read More
