    We’ve all seen them. The man is a disgrace, as are the thugs from his party who beat each other up to the extent that one of them is now in hospital. Still, I think they are probably finished as a party now.

    You should read a  bit of history. Germany once had a charismatic orator leading them. He engaged and harnessed popular support by seemingly fixing all the problems of his country, while in the background he had an army of thugs to support him.  That ended well for europe didn’t it.

    On the right you have Farage and on the left you have Corbyn, this leaves a huge vacuum in the centre to be filled by Mrs May. Don’t be fooled by conference speeches as they just ‘test the water’ to see what the reaction is to certain policy ideas.

    Just out of interest, take a look at the post with which I initiated an old thread (https://www.frenchentree.com/france-forum/topic/can-you-afford-to-vote-to-leave/). Take a look at some of the responses that post produced. And then take a look at what the £ is doing against the € at present. Who, some six months on, would have the courage to say ‘never’ and ‘won’t happen’ to the possibility of the the £ falling to a value of 0,50€?

    Be worried, be very worried …..

    Yosuke Hosokawa, head of the currency sales team at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, said there could be more bloodshed to come for sterling.

    “We thought today’s plunge was a matter of time. Negative factors were mounting against the pound, and eventually the dam broke.”

    He added: “We have not seen the bottom yet. Breaking the 31-year low is now in sight.”

    Things won’t start to really bite until UK warehouses are empty and they need to be replenished. At the moments exports are riding high on false raw material and parts prices.

    All my suppliers having been avoiding price increases because margins are so tight with their competitors, but the chain reaction is days away.

    Yep.

    As to the two UKIP’ers disagreement – Seems UKIP are trying to blow this off as merely a strong disagreement between colleagues, haa, haa nudge, nudge. In most work places by now both would have been suspended pending an investigation and regardless of whether or not punches were thrown the verbal threats alone would nave warreated dismissal for gross missconduct.

    I guess we must just accept that some politicians hold themselves to lower standards than the rest of us…nothing new there then.

    I read the first 2 pages, what struck me was that most of the contributors are marked as “blocked” somewhat contrary to claims that only a couple of people have ever been banned.

    It was and still is a very divisive subject.

    I don’t think the £’s plummet could be described as divisive – it is a simple, demonstrable fact accurately predicted at the start of the referenced thread.  It is solely due to the international response to the Leave vote coupled with the reduction of the bank base rate.  The reality is that the majority of the world’s major currencies are valued more highly against the £ than 3 months ago.

    There are 4 blocked ex-members in the first 3 pages of that thread.  Of those, one is back under a different avatar but is resisting – with some difficulty, I expect – being outspoken, at the risk of being uncovered probably.

    Thanks in part to Maggie I got parity rates on USD transfers to my Guernsey Account. The Plaza Accord 1985 was a great disappointment. :smile::grin:
