RPI is 0.1% + 1% at the moment.RPI was always higher then CPI not now.NS work on the RPI.Wonder if NS will change it to CPI (at the moment at 3%).A year ago RPI was about 5% and CPI at 3%. Not a good return at the moment.There again inflation may take off at any time?. NS may stop doing this saving plan if they/government think inflation will take off.Maybe a wise thing to put some money into this before it stop`s?...

I should point out that they say your money is 100% safe...that is true.They don`t tell you that if the country goes broke they will pay you back when you want your money?.I think it will be a case off you will get your money but only when we can give it back to you...you should live so long?.

I have thought and thought about how to save...My thoughts...

Gold etc,they have in the past by law taken gold savings off the people as you know.Hmmm...the only thing I can come up with that is (I think) the safest place for your savings is...arable farmland.

Yes it can go down and down but you can bet that at sometime in the future you will score BIG time with it...it always comes good in the end...always has given time. Nothing else I can see is as safe,long term.There again they can take that off you as well. Nothing is safe.

Gold has taken off and many say it will go even higher.Silver is still very cheap...at the moment,that I think will change BIG time.Good idea to put a few bob into some physical silver. DON`T buy silver shares or these bank saving silver for you in a bank vault is Switzerland...that is a BIG NO NO.

Get yourself down here...me thinks...

The best way to use your money is to buy an isolated or well-guarded piece of land and grow potatoes.

Or, rather than a mass return to agrarian culture and the inevitable 'tragedy of the commons (ie feudalism)', perhaps it might be better how to ponder the re utilisation of in place assets and public goods along the lines of social need?
