Extreme Brexit could be worse than financial crisis for UK: BoE

Your whole premise is based on how strong the baht is depending on whether a Tory or labour government is in power. Seriously!

And the baht was in the 70-90 range for over 5 years or so...I would dig out the data but honestly I can't be arsed!

 

 

It hit 90 when the Asian economy crashed which was a one off!

It was never in the 70-90 range for over 5 years or so. It was in the lower 70s for a few years but never again went anywhere near the 80s let alone the 90s.

 

Data saying that it was in such a range for 5 years does not exist for you to try and dig out, that's why you can't be 'arsed'.

Correct on both points. Labour under Corbyn would borrow and push debt up again for a temporary feel-good factor but eventually bring about national bankruptcy. The Pound hit 90 Baht for one day early in 1998 and was 86+ for a few amazing days. 

You can't compare Jeremy Corbyn with Tony Blair. Even the most ardent old style labour voters fear Corbyn getting into number 10.

 

Like many others I hate Blair for getting our boys killed for no reason in Iraq and Afghanistan but there is no question about his boosting our economy. His military ambitions and that crow of a wife of his led to his downfall.

Have a look here at the monthly forex rate GBP/THB from January 1990 until January 2019.

Here are the exchange rate figures for the last 35 years.

The period of it hitting 80 or 90 must have been so brief it does not get a mention.

You have dazzled yourself and everyone else so much with this ridiculously extended table that you missed it yourself. Grouse needs quiet!


Here is the relevant bit:

 

3/1998 68.696889 64.045420 74.164738 22
2/1998 75.436886 70.606236 83.191473 20
1/1998 86.165356 77.505273 90.674462 22
12/1997 73.696804 68.459081 77.661781 23

It's very easy for them to blame Brexit to defelct the blame.

Blame others is the best way. 

Blame Brexit or the E. U. (depending on what side you are).

Firstly I said 70-90 not "80 or 90" and I was giving a rough guide. This data looks suspicious as I distinctly remember being out there in 2002 and getting over 80 baht to the pound. According to your post I was getting 60+ .

 

  I admit I would of been better saying 60-70 for 5 years or so which would of  been nearer the mark.  Having said that your comment about who is in power in the UK has virtually nothing to do with how strong the baht is at that particular time and that was my point.

 

Please stop posting the whole <deleted> table!

Hi guys. Just got the data today for last week. This is for w/e Monday 18th 2019 at 2am (end of shift, early Monday morning). Liverpool poll.

 

58% leave
18% accept May's deal/any deal
14% stay in/second vote
10% don't know/care. Undecided. Spoilt vote paper. Too drunk to understand the poll or put a cross in a box.

 

Pretty conclusive I reckon.

Its not a national poll,i think 58% is low for smack heads
