Evermore parallels between Boris and Trumpy
I would rather have Boris or Trump than Corbyn.

This is what the whole Brexit mess was built on. Misdirected blame at the EU for situations which had either been created or caused by the sovereign nation involved.
And it's covered quite well in this interview with James O'Brien. Not a fan of Owen Jones though.

Farage has given Boris until 14th of November to agree an alliance - but only on the proviso he drops the Deal.

Far better not to chase dividends as they are taxable at a higher rate the capital gains.
Ideally a company should be able to invest it's earnings as a higher rate, so high dividends tells you something about the company, quite often it's about to go bankrupt.

Depends how high the dividend appears to be, if it's much above 10% in todays market the dividend will likely cut because they cant afford to pay it, if it hits 25% the company is about to collapse, the dividend being so high as the share price has fallen significantly. What part is not true? or is your definition of a high dividend different from mine?

Yes, my definition of a high dividend - in our days - is different.

In order not to derail the thread, I sent pm.

Thatís because itís a British cold, itís trying to decide whether to leave or not.

My feeling is that it will linger for a while yet.
