Proof of identity by Mike Barnes[_3_]
I've just had a letter from my bank, demanding that I send certified documents to prove my identity. Not so unusual for a new account, you might think. But I've been an active customer for over 20 years. WTF? -- Mike Barnes Cheshire, England

Bond and Fixed Interest Fund Prices by Moniker de Plume
Hello All Does anyone have any thoughts on the medium term future for Bond and Fixed Interest Fund prices? I have read that bond prices go down when central bank interest rates go up, and this does seem to have some logic to it. After a central bank interest rate rise, a fixed interest bond...

A centre-left argument for flat tax - combined with CI it would besimple and just by andy wainwright
UKIP have recently mooted the idea of a flat 30% income tax, and even from a leftist background there is a need for something simpler and actually paid as opposed to avoided. I'm happy with an even higher 50% flat tax in order to abolish all forms of means testing. MT is a marginal tax rate on...
