    What we've seen from knowing the people in the story is that while a lot of supermarket 'rubbish' is stuff with only a day or two left on the use-by date, they also throw loads away that has weeks or even months left. Frequently high-end stuff.

    We subscribe to their "waste not"...

    Not really a large dip even by this week's standards! Maybe the market already priced this in, or is still reeling from the Evergrande story.

    I have on several occasions sold during a utterly calamitous slide, only for it to immediately rebound... I mean literally you couldn't draw on the chart a worse place. It's becoming quite amusing since it's only small amounts, I'm thinking of charging people to tell them when I sell....

    Crypto is having a fun week or two.

    I'm sure I would be substantially richer if I wrote a "Big Red Button" script that sold off all my holdings anytime there's a big red candle.
    I know I would be richer if I resisted the urge to sell when things are plunging

  • Around here at least supply seems to have evened out again - in the summer some builders' yards basically had signs up "no cement". There were rumours it was all prioritised for HS2 and Wimpey. Of course we import loads of our raw materials but even in the USA wood (lumber ) has been rocketing...

    replied to Contract Inside IR35 = Anything Goes?
    I wouldn't want the first thing the client hears is "this is impossible, I quit". You'd surely want to make them aware, firmly, what you've been asked to do and why this is not sustainable. "You've asked me to cover 3 people at once". It might be part of your 'job' is pushing back...

    replied to XR blocking M25 Again
    No she isn't. Recent law changes (I thought they had already passed?) regard violent/offensive protest. The more intellectual protestors (or their leaders more commonly) are concerned - with some merit - that this gives police blanket powers to decide what is offensive, their followers just get told...

  • I think this is one of those things that if you just commit to it, isn't such a big deal as it might seem - there can be workarounds and so on.

    I thought we were supposed to turn them off to conserve energy and reduce emmissions!

    More seriously, if this is simply an issue of cost rather than an actual supply shortage (?) government can surely as a last resort just pay for it or guarantee energy firms the cash to do so....
