Yep "surged a whole 1%" to Bloomberg!

Oanda has it at just over 38.8 to the ThB. krungsri on-line 38.51. In Jan-May this year it was between 40-42.

Stellar

4% up from Thursday last week.

Was 37.2 up to 39.2.

 

Why does anyone use other sources than XE.com?

The opposition have finally woken up and are starting to play the Machiavellian Boris Cummings at his own game. The obvious move would be to attach a motion to the deal making it's acceptance persuant to a confirmatory vote, Johnson's deal vs. remain (you're just being silly saying deal vs. no deal). However, Corbyn stated yesterday that he won't be doing this tomorrow and will just be voting the deal as it stands, down. He also stated that he would be playing his aces next week.

 

So what are his aces? A vote of no confidence in the government and forming a temporary government himself? Calling an election? A straight vote on a confirmaty vote? Thankfully Corbyn has wised up and no one knows.

 

All he can do is table a vote of no confidence. If the government loose it doesn't mean he can appoint himself temporary PM. 

I wouldn't put anything past this treacherous treasonous terd though. Probably promising the power crazed Sturgeon anything she wants to back him with her Westminster androids. 

 

Just what Britain needs, a Socialist Worker Party hard left commie pandering to the Scottish National Socialists and IRA terrorists to get power. What could go wrong?

It is up on EU website but struggling to get into it - guess it is rather popular at the moment!

 

https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_19_6120

The revised Protocol provides a legally operational solution that avoids a hard border on the island of Ireland, protects the all-island economy and the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement in all its dimensions and safeguards the integrity of the Single Market. This solution responds to the unique circumstances on the island of Ireland with the aim of protecting peace and stability. All other elements of the Withdrawal Agreement remain unchanged in substance, as per the agreement reached on 14 November 2018.

 

From that link.

please explain what is wrong with my statement?

The bit you made up about fear.

I have yet to meet a brexiter who doesn't believe they'd win by a much bigger landslide if such folly was ever seriously entertained 🤣

 

Here's the latest from Farage...

If the vote of no confidence is passed, it's emcumbent on the leader of the opposition to form an interim government. If he fails, others can have a crack at it, which is where the current sticking point arises. The Lib Dems are currently refusing to accept Corbyn as interim leader and have put forward a variety of alternatives, some sensible like the Father of the House, Ken Clarke. Others like Layla Moran even advocated Anna Soubury. I see the Lib Dems as the biggest stumbling block to getting rid of Johnson.

Well I suppose quite a bit could go wrong if even the tiniest bit of your fantastical rhetoric were true. Luckily it's pure fiction.

So far, as I understand it, his deal is (much) worse than the one May tried to pass. Words are cheap, mister Johnson!

And Johnson’s words are almost always lies.

Let's go back to my original statement...

Quote

Brexiteers are scared stiff of any chance of a second referendum that would overturn the first, their logic is flawed ans corrupt.

Wheres the fear in that? the only people that scares is those who do not believe in the democratic right to change ones mind.


I see more fear in your post featuring an image of Pratman

In reality the real stumbling block is JC and his bloody mindedness to be PM, any decent leader would have stood down in favour of someone more acceptable to those out outside the Labour party, and it is not just the LIbDems who see the danger of a JC lead government.

Agree totally but suspect that is one of the aces up Corbyn's sleeve. Prior to the vote of no confidence (maybe immediately prior), he will do a deal with the other parties and nominate a suitable candidate as caretaker leader.

 

He and others have learned their lessons re. being open and honest about their intentions and allowing Boris Cummings to formlate a counter strategy before the event. For the first time they're putting Boris Cummings on the back foot rather than allowing him to put them on the back foot.

 

Game on.

as all banks do too, I think most see what they get cash in hand on street , and then expats what they get rom the one they choose online by transferring ….BUT be sure to calculate for your incoming transfers Bangkok Bank as that is used by the immigration officers for your extensions , unless you do monthly …. and even then ….

No deal - killed

May Deal - killed

Johnson deal - about to be killed 

What have we left Revoke A50 and move on.

I think he might squeeze it through.  It is pretty much May's deal re-hashed and he has thrown the DUP under a bus but by now people are so desperate for closure they will accept virtually anything to get it across the line.  Nigel is spitting blood and that in itself is worth a smile.  He is right that it isn't a clean break and there will still be a close relationship with the EU but for most people that works just fine.   Watching the ERG boy's being interviewed is entertaining as they squirm in their seats saying that they think the deal delivers what they want, all through gritted teeth.

 

Having the border in the Irish sea is a pretty pathetic U-turn and something Johnson pledged over and over he would never do.  Still I don't think anyone is that surprised and something had to give.  Saturday will be interesting and I think we can expect more spinning in their seats from all the usual suspects.

 

But overall I think Boris did the best he could do and I can live with his deal.  I will leave my business in Europe because it is working well for me there and I like the environment and the people.  I don't think this is a good deal but it could have been a whole lot worse.
