    Default The UKŁ is f**ked at the moment

    I just looked at some cigars from our pal Down Under. Two boxes of Punch Punch 48 for $240 which converts to Ł200 at today's rate. A couple of years ago they'd have cost me Ł168!!!!

    The €uro had almost reached parity at €1.06 to the Ł.....

    Brexit.... So much winning

    Sounds like project fear to me Stevie.

    Brexit... the gift that keeps on giving. It's only going to drop further if no deal becomes a reality.

    Best not get me started...

    Funny thing, even with the pound being trashed you can still buy 2 boxes of those in foreign currency for the same price as a single box in the UK

    dont get me going... its a fools errand thats costing us all, and will be decades before we see any form of economic upside, particularly when you off-set it against the costs of it all... then add in the Boris marketing machine costs and we're going to be underwater for many a long year now... it also makes me feel rather cynical about what the government cannot afford...

    You should be able to get at least 1.09 to the Euro still, for the next few weeks at least, but yes it's definitely only going to continue coming down without some magic act from Boris that isn't physically possible

    I've never seen the Swiss franc as bad, 1.17 this morning in NatWest business rates. The Swiss used to artificially keep it at 1.45 a few years ago

    I'm already poor (but rich in everything else lol) so voting out was never really effecting me much, but I've seen the rates drop over the last few weeks at work and feel for some who are affected.
