    The 2016 dated coin is five or six times more common if you belive the mintage numbers and you dont find many 2016 brittania coins in circulation anyway...

    proposed heating payments this winter

    I remember in the mid seventies the newspapers were all full of stories about how electricity bills would be practically free in later years , sucking up to the baby boomers as usual - .If we had known the truth we might have behaved better - ah well.

    proposed heating payments this winter

    For instance it often takes 15-20 years to get a nuclear power station up and running and they are always well over budget as well

    proposed heating payments this winter

    Yes but many of these products are needed now and it will be hard to justify billing customers for future tech when they cannot afford their bills now let alone in six months time

  10. HOW TO HAGGLE (Burt appears. He is very big.) Burt: Yeah? Harry: This bloke won't haggle. Burt: (looking around) Where are the guards? Brian: Oh, all right ... I mean do we have to ... Harry: Now I want twenty for that ... Brian: I gave you twenty. Harry: Now are you telling me that's not worth twenty shekels? Brian: No. Harry: Feel the quality, that's none of yer goat. Brian: Oh ... I'll give you nineteen then. Harry: No, no. Do it properly. Brian: What? Harry: Haggle properly. This isn't worth nineteen. Brian: You just said it was worth twenty. Harry: Burt!! Brian: I'll give you ten. Harry: That's more like it. (outraged) Ten!? Are you trying to insult me? Me? With a poor dying grandmother...Ten!?! Brian: Eleven. Harry: Now you're getting it. Eleven!?! Did I hear you right? Eleven? This cost me twelve. You want to ruin me? Brian: Seventeen. Harry: Seventeen! Brian: Eighteen? Harry: No, no, no. You go to fourteen now. Brian: Fourteen. Harry: Fourteen, are you joking? Brian: That's what you told me to say. (Harry registers total despair.) Tell me what to say. Please. Harry: Offer me fourteen. Brian: I'll give you fourteen. Harry: (to onlookers) He's offering me fourteen for this! Brian: Fifteen. Harry: Seventeen. My last word. I won't take a penny less, or strike me dead. Brian: Sixteen. Harry: Done. (He grasps Brian's hand and shakes it.) Nice to do business with you. Tell you what, I'll throw in this as well. (He gives Brian a gourd.) Brian: I don't want it, but thanks. Harry: Burt! Burt: (reappearing rapidly) Yes? Brian: All right! All right!! Thank you. Harry: Where's the sixteen then? Brian: I already gave you twenty. Harry: Oh yes ... that's four I owe you then. (starts looking for change) Brian: It's all right, it doesn't matter.
  11. It was amongst a load of lovely coins all with no price tags - I suspect you are expected to haggle
  12. Did I see that for sale in york? Thought I did anyway
  13. York unfortunately bought me little this year - ahhh well maybe next time
  14. The strange thing is the right wing of the party seem to think that every law that passed into british law from europe over the last fifty or so years was bad and wants them all recinded - surely they cannot all have been bad ? Or maybe the EEC was the Nazi party in disguise after losing the second world war
  15. It was a promise I did not say I agreed with it, or thought it would do the country any good , the one good thing is that europe cannot be blamed by anyone for all the counries ills

  17. BUT HE REALLY DID GET BREXIT DONE (The one honest thing he really promised) Loved the bits about him shagging though , this would have been a minus to a politician in the sixties but somehow fifty years later people sort of admire him for it.... It also means his partners will never trust him and know he's always after sticking his Johnson, somewhere he should not be.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Very true indeed penny collectors are notorious in finding /discovering new varieties ,with halfpennies and farthings the fans are fewer but there again every so often something new pops up

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    while this is your opinion I would say only 60% agree and a hell of a lot will point to 1849 pennies and 1860/59 and say whats the point when the coins don't exist?
