Your Virgil idea was the best one, Pete. What a man. WHAT a man! But he loves his mum (honest), so you may have to get past her first...

30 grand could give you an awful lot of security. You can get a risk-free ISA with 20 grand of it with Coventry Building Society, fixed rate for five years, at 2.15%. And they are ethical. The other ten grand, maybe do up your place, get a better car and have a nice holiday or two.

Kevin, the reason Labour MPs (etc) voted in favour of a referendum, then in favour of Article 50, was that they would have been toast if they hadn't. There was a burgeoning wave of UKIP-led populism to contend with, so they yielded. Plus they had a severely mistaken inkling that it didn't matter in the first case because they were certain that remain would win.
