It remains to be seen how much immigration control can save the NHS. Don't forget that NHS uses EU doctors and nurses as well as having EU patients. the numbers of EU migrants has fallen over the last two years. It is the innate laziness of the British that led them coming here in the first place!

So please tell me who is correct? Why is EVERYTHING to do with Brexit/remain so very controversial? Who is correct? You don't know and neither do I.

I do believe that prices will rise and further devaluation occurs because the currency markets simply dislike uncertainty. The pound will go into free fall come April and you do not know how far it will fall!

Your arguments are well presented but based on the EU playing nicely. Why should they. We re in a push and push back situation. The Brexiteers started the push and now the EU will push back. Perhaps I may seem childish to you but that is the world of politics.

True .... However I prefer a positive attitude as in'

# Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
# Good fortune favors the brave.

As a nation we have always been innovators, and more often than not first off

the 'blocks'?

When has currency ever been stable??

I can remember about 25 years

ago my daughter rang me in a panic, she had that week completed on a house

purchase and the news that day announced interest rates were going up to

12/15%, I told her to hang on she would have to tighten her belt but there was

no way it could stay at that .... sure enough a couple of months and things had

gone back to normal!!

The pound is in no more trouble than the euro, Marine Le Pen has attacked

the faltering euro currency as one of the root problems of the EU, and a major

obstacle to the development of the French economy.



The UK will be getting out of the EU *first* I think first is better than last?

The world is changing .....


1) The Scottish referendum

2) David Cameron only won the election because he promised a referendum

3) The referendum gave Brexit nobody believed it would happen

4) Against all odds we have President Donald Trump

Who would have thought it? I predicted all 4!!


This year there are many elections coming up and Merkels popularity is down

The rise of French Marine Le Pen is firmly in line with the surge of popularism

around the globe. Le Pen has said she would adopt *intelligent protectionism*

as a policy. Le Pen warns the EU I will come to Brussels and dismantle

France's relationship with the superstate bloc, and she has promised to push

back the sprouting European superstate and take back *sovereignty* to France.


The beginning of the end?



Your arguments are well presented but based on the EU playing nicely.


They are whistling in the dark ..... The Brexit is the start of a landslide.

You know damn well that currency fluctuates around a mean. What I am talking about the is the massive downward fluctuations. Even As I write the media is now talking about another downward correction which could be another 10%. At some stage these increased import costs will lead to further food rises.

The biggest influences would be business confidence. Given the hard Brexiteer want a clean break and the soft Brexiteers want some form of relationship especially around financial services. This confusion which is simply not good for the currency.
