On the 23rd of June, the whole of the United Kingdom went to the polls to vote and decide if we want to stay in the European Union (EU). The result? Brits voted to leave the EU-I say again- the power of democracy had made people vote to leave the EU...interesting times ahead. Within hours of the result coming out, the price of gold jumped nearly 7% to $1,348.27 an ounce and the £ is still fluctuating like crazy (1£GBP = US$1.36). The last few days have been seismic and historic for Britain, the greatest political crisis since the second world war with reverberations felt around the world. Whichever side of the Brexit debate you were on, we are entering a period of great political and economic uncertainty.
Boris Johnson, the former Mayor of London, said the UK won't "pull up the drawbridge", starting the tricky task of telling people who voted for this that they can't have it. They messed up...since then, over two million people signed petition to have another vote to decide to stay in the EU...a possible re-run of the referendum so this time people can actually vote to stay in the EU? Is this a democracy? Second full business day after Brexit vote will begin on Monday... no Article 50 notification....they will do whatever they can to delay it....get used to this...they made the public look foolish....
The Deep State and the global controllers in the Upper House are furious over this. When Chapter 50 is filed there's going to be a very negative effect; they will make things very ugly in Britain to make us an example to the other EU member states not to even think about leaving. It all looks great now but the party won't last long...come 10 years it will look ugly for sure. Not good in the long run. Nigel Farage backtracked on Vote Leave's '£350m for the NHS' pledge hours after result. The Ukip leader (who was educated at Dulwich College, can you believe) said he had never made such a pledge.
Someone wrote (I quote): "Things will be unstable for the UK whether or not there will be "interference". The currency deep dive is just the beginning, and then there will be changes to trade policy and so on. Now, if people see the good of leaving and vote what they think best - fine; what really worries me is the level of stupidity of the people! What they said were absolute shockers. The 10 years to come will be really bad because of the existence of such naive and ignorant creatures."
On the plus side, at least there is no threat of us having Donald Trump as our new leader … although there is chance that we may have someone who looks a bit like him …
Paris from 35,000ft at Night
Fond memories of Paris....with a beautiful photo I took from the sky in 2010...when Paris was the city of LOVE not WAR. Prayers and thoughts with ALL Parisiens.
Mount Blanc, Switzerland
Captured on the way to a short trip to Geneva. The mountain was the scene of two fatal air crashes; Air India Flight 245 in 1950 and Air India Flight 101 in 1966. Both planes were approaching Geneva airport and the pilots miscalculated their descent; 48 and 117 people, respectively, died. These days, planes try to avoid the airspace around the mountain as much as possible: Photo Copyright Navjot Singh

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
