comment Where, if at all, do statistics exist breaking down votes by race in British general elections?
The data on the Wikipedia page linked above is based on exit polls, not on voter records (which I'm assuming are anonymous, just like in the UK). In which case, this doesn't really answer the question.

comment United Kingdom: Where to save money for a property deposit
This week's budget also mentioned that from next year, tax on savings would have a tax-free allowance of £1000pa for basic rate taxpayers, or £500pa for higher rates. This could make some accounts - even some current accounts - more attractive than an ISA.

comment Am I a tenant in common by mortgaging my share?
It appears that the reference is the Wikipedia article on Concurrent Estate. As far as I'm aware, some of the details on that page don't apply in the UK; maybe it's talking about the US equivalent?

comment Am I a tenant in common by mortgaging my share?
What do you mean by "mortgage my share of the property"? Typically, a mortgage is applied to the whole of a property, since you can't repossess (foreclose on) half a house!

comment How should I decide in what order to sell shares from different lots?
Unless the gain from selling your shares is more than the annual allowance (£11,000 from April 2015), it makes no difference.

comment Does the greek Syriza party have another political program than "renegotiate the debt"?
"Nogocy" isn't a word. Did you mean "renegotiate", or "cancel", etc?

comment Investment Options for 14-year old?
These days, premium bonds offer a terrible rate of return, even compared to a normal bank account. Your best bet might be a simple savings account.
