After tonight, can we change the thread title or start a new one with these possible titles:

The Brexit aftermath thread: actual consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in the EU.

The Brexit aftermath thread:What the hell have we done?

The Brexit aftermath thread:Why didn't we do it sooner?
What our US friends term "pi##ing on the ashes"

Buying a bigger property in France, 6 times bigger to be precise , Fundsmith went up 32.5% in Euros in 2019 or 45.67% since I broke my back on 6 February 2018.

No, it's an expensive part of Rhône-Alpes, prices like in Z.H. although less than half of price of Verbier.

It's just a matter of time, the longer the better. My wife is risk averse & had never invested in equities, her first investment has more than doubled. Of course it dripped about 6% in the first few weeks of her buying, that usually happens. My first holding was down 6 months after purchasing but is now well over a triple.

After 1330 pages and 27,000 posts (is this a record for EF?) on this thread perhaps it is a good idea to archive it. The next chapter should be 'Transition' for at least 11 months.
I only have 800 pages.
The number of pages can vary as you can set it to one of a number of options in the settings.

A quick glance shows Verbier and Zurich prices to be fairly similar, oder?

1m gets you in the region of 80-100m2 in Verbier and outskirts of Zurich go for similar. Greencity on the very limits of Zurich city want a touch over 1m for 61m2

I'm not sure it is as bad as it first looks. Very green area (duhh!) with great transport links to Zurich - about 10 mins to the HB with very regular trains (10 mins rush hour, 20 other times).

I have a couple of friends who bought there and are very happy - prices have rocketed down there, presumably for the reasons above.

Haha, are you shopping in the £15m range?

Those are clearly outliers - plenty of places in Zurich to fetch that silly money too

It always looks wet and dark to me there, and the highway around and the train through it - but it might be different when you live in it.

Just remembered something about not being interested in cars and that you'd never spent more than £1000 on one.

I have never owned a new car & have always spent more than £1000. The cars we own are all either 2009/2010 first registered. I prefer to invest in equities than depreciating assets.

I'm sure you wrote that you'd never paid more than £1000 for a car. My memory must be playing tricks on me.
