Sterling rout not yet over as no-deal Brexit odds jump - Reuters poll

Recommended Posts

I have a real increasing hatred of Johnson and his right-wing henchmen/women.
And we thought politicians in this part of the world were selfish, lying, ba*&a%ds !!!

I love him even more. Hatred for comrade Corbyn and his leftist power grabbing antics increases.

Its the uncertainty contributing to the sterling decline. When brexit is finally declared the uncertainty will end and the pound should start to rise again as sure as the Euro will decline.

Thank you, clairvoyant, for this nonsense

So a Ponzi is fair too? Somebody promises that everybody becomes super rich and at the end only few become rich because everything was a huge lie. But the people decided (democratic) that they give the money. Or the grandma who was cheated by a fake policeman. But she decided to give him her money from her free will. All could find in the internet that they will be cheated but everything sounds so real, so they believe everything. Same as the Brexiteers. 

Ponzi promised riches? Don’t think you understand what Brexit is all about.

Absolutely no point in stating the obvious. A no-deal catastrophe for the UK just doesn't register with some. However, I am confident that a free-trade deal with the EU would occur whatever the outcome, because it's in both the EU and the UK's interest to agree.  How they fudge that, will be most interesting...

And if a free trade agreement comes about, why wouldn't every economically strong EU nation want to do the same? You get the most important perk, and you get it for free.

The Brexiteers promise the UK to become important and rich without the EU.

But it could - it would only take a Soros type character to spook the pigeons and most fund managers (perhaps not the better ones from independent houses) would follow like lemmings. Their fund rules would mean they have to. Fear gathers moss at an alarming rate on the markets once it has momentum.

 

Which economic fundamentals are you taking about ? - the ones we have now are as a member of the largest trading block in the world. You are in for a rude awakening if you think going it alone is going to be seamless. 

 

As I've said before, the UK is in a terrible negotiating position now as everyone knows they are desperate for deals, deals that can take decades to tie up. The UK will be prostituting itself for many years to come.

Sorry, I don't agree with you. And I'm not going to argue my point, because your opinion is probably the worst scenario that could occur. So let's drop this debate and see what actually is the reality.

 

I'll give you one clue. No way is both the EU and the UK going to commit financial suicide - it just won't happen.

Financial suicide is BEING committed - its all about the extent.

Actually, it's not. If you cannot understand basic economics, then I can't help you. And don't for one moment I think exiting the EU is not going to be an economic disaster, but the extent of that, IMO, is not suicide. Mainly because the UK is the 5th global economy and by virtue of that, we will take a hit, sure, but like 2008, we'll survive that.

 

Now can we drop this, as we're on the same page.

Basically, because it would be in both parties interest to reach a compromise. Sometimes, I find remainers as stupid as leavers in understanding basic economic facts of life.

Fantastic news for Brit expats thinking of going home because of more stringent visa rules.

 

Wow. I left the UK a relative poor man. If only we can get the pound down to 25 again I can go home the conquering hero !

I wonder how many British pensionario's are "pulling their hair out" as regret for their Brexit = whatever consequenses, repercussions etc.. LEAVE ! ( and as nu THB 65k/ month… yes, the same.. LEAVE ! )

And when forex traders or importers/exporters starts to be caught by fear, they will DUMP the British currency and postpone buying till the edge. Result: British Pound.. up to one "ounce".

Written from an extreme left wing point of view.  There was a referendum in which more people voted to leave than remain.  Get over it and move on.  More votes wins, it's called democracy, try practicing it. 

Which form of "leave"? Leave whatever consequences ? Voters were promised the "heaven on earth".. but saw their purchasing power sink from € 1,40 to now.. € 1,0769. No deal? 1 on a million, Boris the Liar said, knowing.. he stears towards the opposite...

Waiter… one cola, 4 straws….
