It's all about the uncertainty.  The longer those remainer MPs drag out Brexit, the worse it will get for the pound. The latest antics in the HoC where they've effectively stopped us from leaving on 31st Oct have worsened the situation further.

Get yourself down to the food banks and tell their users that. Jobs? Have a tin of ravioli instead.

'Our' country? Not mine, fella.

I've still got the proceeds of a house sale in the UK waiting to transfer to Thailand, at this rate I'm going to be lucky to get enough money for a few nights in a Khao San Road fleapit.
