    …you can try to find an equity that is rising faster than the pound is falling…

    1.  Stocks internationally are very expensive.  I can feel a bubble effect and don’t want to be around when it, inevitably, bursts.  In fact, this market run has caused me to disinvest totally but the cash is in Monopoly money or, as others call it, £££s sterling.
    2. Is anything rising faster than the £ is falling?

    especially around how they expect to disassociate EU law from UK law prior to actual brexit.

    <hr />

    Kind regards Hal http://www.domainedurenne.com

    That bit seems to be easy, they are simply adding it all into British law that will take effect on D-Day and then unpick it at their leisure.

    So, yet more uncertainty!

    Why these idiotic (sorry, I should use the term ‘mentally challenged’ as the former seems to upset some folk) politicians do not have a plan that includes all these things rather than ‘maybe’ or ‘let’s see’, beats me. Surely one of them at least sat down and thought the thing out and has a manifesto for us all to peruse? No, all they do is run around asking for their country back and we will spend 350M per week on the NHS.

    I see the boss of Reid Steel on TV last night saying how awful the employment rights of including overtime into holiday entitlement was and he hopes he can get people in the CBI to lobby for its overturn… This is the sort of thing that is going to be dragged out, with no one selling the new Uk to Nissan and then bewilderment when it is announced the new Qashkai is to be built in Spain or wherever.

    No wonder the pound is in turmoil and youngsters cannot get a mortgage!

    I think the solution to the EU laws is quite clever and will certainly make the transition easier. But it’s become clear though that May is very much a Brexit trojan horse and how much of a nations future has been manipulated and sacrificed by a euro skeptic minority.  The irony is that the Labour grass roots have done their dirty work for them.

    IMO The plan is to have the UK out before a General Election otherwise any party standing on a remain agenda would wipe the floor with the conservatives.

    There will be court challenges to the approach May is taking. The UK has never been in this territory before. The PM is using parliamentary privilege to deny a vote on – anything.

    Testing times ahead for constitutional law in the UK

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out. Is the government above the law? A worrying precedent to set if the courts rule that a decision without a parliamentary vote is unlawful and if May tries to ignore it.

    And if she uses the Westminster overrules the minions in Scotland, Wales and NI card?

    She is Thatcher plus two, but on unknown territory.

    Democracy down the drain.

    Buy wheelbarrows is my advice.

    <hr />

    Dreaming the life.

    Full of straw and fool the security guards by stealing wheelbarrows.


    I would lie on top of the stairs and smell the cigar smoke of Castro.

    No she is not.

    She is using the CROWN PREROGATIVE!

    Loopy wonders….. do you trot out “parliamentary privilege”  due to a genuine error of judgement or  a furtive attempt to confuse loopy?

    You are correct, of course. Still doesn’t alter the fact that it will become a constitutional issue. I’m quite happy to see the back of the UK, but am gobsmacked as to how the elected government has backed itself into this mess.
