For an in-depth view read ambrose evans-pritchard columns in The Daily Telegraph - he has many doomster scenarios tho' just today he has 'turned' after months of doom forecasts - some say he is a nu-labour lapdog now but his articles are certainly food for thought ....too many to post links.

I don't follow the UK at all, since the US is where most of my money is invested. Also, the US has so many damn issues we really don't need to look outward for other problems to solve.
I think the US will fail, and it will occur in the next 18 - 24 months. I say fail as in the US will collapse inward. The monetary system will collapse sooner, unless BHO can work in miracles.
