    Sterling is strengthening on the increasing chance of a Corbyn led government.

    We are way better off now than we were in the 70's. Since then we have got progressively better off, on average. We certainly haven't got worse off due to the EU ..... unless you're one of those xenophobe types who don't like them peeps with a strange accent they may think we're worse off, but then, they think we should go back to the glorious colonial days

    of course we are all better off generally, and I'm not involving the EU in the debate. What I'm saying is that in the long term, exchange rates have little relevance. There will be short term effects as currencies jostle for position, but in the long term, things even out. So we are better off now with £1 = $1.2 than we were in the 70's when £1 = $2.80.

    You’re the sort of person that would argue with themselves and still lose.

    Or bang on about it infinity times as though it were gratefully received on any one of those infinity occasions.
