As per Macroeconomix's suggestion, this is an unthreaded "Pub" thread (if that's not a contradiction) for general discussion on whatever banter takes your fancy.
Economics, politics, gripes, the weather, theories of the universe, off-the wall investing ideas - plus good jokes - are all welcome! Links to other good discussions & debates also appreciated, on or off-site.
If someone wants to volunteer as publican, let us know. In the interim, suggestions on thread rules welcome but we were thinking... well, none really (other than the Posting Guidelines).
And good news - we've got a 24 hour licence so plenty of time for pontification & going off into the long grass.
Can we take your order?
