I purchased my four £5 gold coins from Bullion by Post about three years ago and if I sold them based on gold prices at the time of writing I would barely make any profit whatsoever.

Everything is becoming more expensive nowadays, therefore everybody likes to save money, even if it's only a couple of pounds. I have a simple tip that may save you up to 10% of what you are ordering online.

In light of the 2017 announcement of who is going to be knighted, I feel that this trend of giving knighthoods to anyone who manages to win more than one gold medal is cheapening this highest honour.
Nobody would argue that Mo Farah or Andy Murray are at the very top of their game. Both of these gentlemen have only achieved greatness within a few years. I don't know how much charity work they do, I can't imagine either of them has much time for charity work. Even so, the knighthood is a really massive award and in my opinion, should only be given to people who have really done something special for many years throughout their life.
I would actually suggest that people like David Beckham are more deserving of a knighthood than Mo Farah or Andy Murray. Bruce Forsyth had to wait 50 years for his knighthood. Ken Dodd has been going for God knows how long, he has also just been knighted, and deservedly as well.

In light of what has been happening to some of the Olympic sports which are lottery funded I'm really not surprised that funding has been withdrawn. I reckon the lottery haven't got the money they used to have which is why they are now tightening their belts.
