I wonder when sterling will dip below the euro. Down to 1.07 today.

Looks like something disasatrous happened in mid-2016. Goodness knows what.



Something wonderful happened in 2016 because, as you well know, the overvalued pound causes massive problems for trade and industry.
The lowering of the pounds value creates brilliantly lucrative opportunities for the UK!

We've accumulated piles of euros over the years - I just refuse to exchange them back to sterling at rip off rates. Thanks to Brexit and Boris the pile is increasing in value (relative to sterling) by the day.

I'll pass on the good news to Yatesman.

Well they must be getting siezed because according to you and Mark Carney and all the hundreds of Remainer financial experts in trade, industry and the media we should be in the grips of a 3 year long double digit recession with record unemployment, horrendous job losses and civil unrest by now.

The fact that are economy is holding up so brilliantly well despite the Remainer negativity and the 5th columnists such as Sturgeon, Cable ,MMcDonnell, Blair et al colluding with our enemies/rivals is an obvious illustration of UK businesses and entrepreneurs siezing their opportunities.

I have a genuine question for which I'd be grateful for an answer.

Today I buy two Spanish oranges which cost me £1. No tariff on goods from the EU so they cost me £1.


On 7 November, assuming No Deal, I again buy two Spanish oranges (assuming they've made it through the docks!). Now I understand that there is a 40% tariff on oranges from the EU.


How much will my oranges cost me on 7 November? It won't be £1.40 as the price I pay includes shopkeepers profit, transport costs and no doubt many other things. I am presuming that the tariff is charged on something like the wholesale price, or the cost of the oranges to the importer but I just don't know.

Can anyone on this illustrious forum shed some light for me.

Thanks

If the brexiteers had talked up brexit as much as the Remainers have talked up remain. Brexit would easily have been delivered in March.

But hey, blame it all on the remainers, EU, Gary Lineker. Lilly Allen. Sunshine, moonlight good times and boogie.

They never sold it to us!

Well, I deliberately left out 'This England' knowing some pedant would point out that
a) England is't an island
b) I ive in Scotland

Looks like I was right , but you pointed it out anyway!

Other countries grow Oranges.

Tbh, Brexit will be a great opportunity for people to start thinking about their food and where it comes from.

Buy local first, British second , seasonal produce third ( remember the days we used to eagerly await the arrival of British strawberries in the grocers in ealy summer?)
Then consciously evaluate the moral and ethical dilemmas of our current supermarket induced reliance on having everything available all year round at any cost to the planet or the environment.

Felling rainforests and draining wetlands across the globe to produce foods for our unnecessary convenience and then flying/shipping that produce thousands of miles , shrouded in reams of plastic packaging is probably not sustainable in the long term.

We've become lazy, demanding, entitled.

Our societal model of convenience and excessive choice is fundamentally flawed............But that's Globalisation for you!

I see now, we buy British grown oranges off of those folk who have orangeries, the likes of Jacob Rees-Mog will be raking it in.

Are oranges grown nearer to the UK than Spain, if there not surely it's not so ecologically sound to buy them / ship them to the UK?.

Well, according to you there will be millions of unemployed kicking about after Oct 31st so British producers can plant away knowing there will be queues of people wanting picking jobs........according to you!

Hows this for a bit of irony for you Brexit voters

2016: TURKEY ARE JOINING THE EU!!! (yeah course they are!)

Scunthorpe votes 68.68% for leave

2019: British Steel in Scunthorpe goes into administration because of Brexit

Turkey buys British Steel Scunthorpe and saves 4,500 jobs

Funded by the pensioners of the Turkish Army Pension fund and so were bailed out by those people the leavers were scared of.

Perhaps the pensioners that voted Leave in Scunthorpe should stop and think about that for a moment.

No doubt the leavers at British Steel are going to resign their jobs now they know their employers are Turkish?

Further irony our current PM was one of the strongest supporters of Turkey's application to join the EU............in the days before he supported Brexit, of course!

As usual you are conflating two different issues.

Pension funds invest in businesses all the time........It is nothing to do with Brexit or immigration.......

What on Earth compels you to post such nonsense?

Are you really that devoid of rational analysis?

Also....Show us the evidence that Scunthorpes woes are Brexit related..........For a start we haven't even left the EU !!!

"The privately owned business is on the brink of collapse, placing 5,000 jobs at risk, as well as a further 20,000 in the supply chain. British Steel has begged the Government for a £30million handout to help it address “Brexit-related issues” and, without urgent intervention, it is set to appoint administrators later today. "
