Your smartphone is millions of times more powerful than all of NASA’s combined computing in 1969. A single computer cost NASA $3.5 million. 77% of people in the USA have smartphones. Yet we’re told of the awful poverty in the USA and capitalism has failed..... sure 👍🏻

Benefits should never be greater than the lowest national salary.

The benefits cap in the UK is £26,000 That's equivalent to a pre-tax salary of £33,500 Or 152% of the national average salary, I wonder why we have a benefits culture in the UK? 🤔

The welfare state is meant to be a safety net. It wasn't designed to be a lifestyle. The fact that there are people on benefits who have foreign holidays, iPhones & designer clothes shows that the system is broken! There are millions of working families who'd love that luxury!

The ideal Labour voter is unemployed, preferably with children, has no ambition because he believes Jeremy will provide everything, has a mobile phone contract but can’t afford food and hates the Tories because they are stopping Jeremy giving him all those free things.

How can some of the richest people in the world today, & also in the history of the world considered to be in poverty? A computer with 0.01% of the power of an iPhone cost millions of pounds just a few decades ago, yet we all have iPhone You really need to get perspective!

How many people in the UK die of malnutrition? Or because of dirty water? The biggest killer in Africa. That’s poverty. Here, if you don’t can’t have the latest iPhone or buy your bits from M&S, isn’t poverty!

“Safe as houses” is what they said in the run up to 2007. Granted gold is no guarantee but I think it’s a well calculated hedge

Have a look at how much is it to: Avg rent in London Avg property value in LDN Then Look at the avg cost of a property for a first time buyer. Apply 25 years interest on that. I can live in a property of the same value for a fraction of the total cost & invest in gold.

Then there will be the opportunity to buy at auction at well below the current market value. I’ll sell some gold, use as a deposit and then get a mortgage on a house at a reasonable price.

*and when interest rates go up, and everyone is defaulting on their mortgages, gold will be rocketing.

This may be true now, remember this article when the government is forced to raise rates above 5%. Then it'll be renters better off. The money I'm saving not having a mortgage & paying interest, is all going into gold which is hugely under valued.
