Quite the opposite actually, but hey-ho.

Good for me.

I'm looking forward to when Article 50 is signed and the arse drops out of the Pound. I'm gonna buy some sterling and sit on it till it goes back up in value. Once it does, I will transfer it back to Canada.

The weak pound is good for the antiques trade (well good for selling). We had a lot more foreign buyers than usual last weekend. A friend of mine runs an auction, a lot of the bidding is done online, he reckons business is booming with foreign buyers.

I still think that it is a shit-storm of the Tories making but you have to make money where you can. If life gives you lemons don't try and make orange juice.

Do they have auctions in China?

I often think, when watching these antique shows, with them banging on about how China stuff is hot right now with them buying it all back, why don't they get a load together, ship them over there, fly out, and flog the stuff to them in their own Country.

You'd get loads more bidders, much more than hoping for internet bidders in a UK saleroom.

I don't know how much shipping costs would be though, and if it would be financially logical.

Yes they have auctions, they also have people who ship to China. There are plenty of Chinese buyers buying from British auction houses, shops and fairs.

The Chinese market fluctuates, things go in and out of fashion, when they are in the price rockets, when they are out it drops. I know a chap who follows it very closely and has made some great deals buy buying and selling the right thing at the right time. Although he has also lost on a couple because the market bombed before he sold.

Ah. And China is getting poorer.

Missed the boat.

no shit, sherlock :

"Parliament has the right to reject the final Brexit deal, No.10 has indicated for the first time – raising the possibility that Britain’s EU exit could yet be halted.

Downing Street agreed it is “very likely” that MPs and peers will be given a vote once the withdrawal negotiations are finished, after the issue arose in the High Court.

The statement – after the Prime Minister repeatedly refused to give ground on demands for Parliament to have a say on Brexit – immediately triggered furious debate about the possible consequences."

They are saying they have the right. Yes, we knew that anyway.

Listen, the people have spoken. It's happening.

If we say democracy has no power we are the same as North Korea. And how would that make us look.
