Who really cares? If I was living in the UK on 100K a year I would be only to pleased to loose 30% of that and suffer for a few years , no holidays, cheap mincemeat for Sunday roast actually anything it takes to leave the shitty EU dictatorship..

All the Brits who voted leave do hahahaha.  Their buying power just went down a few notches.

You're in Russia earning rubles right?  geezz...that's a 50% loss right there in the past 5 years.  All the well paid expats in Moscow I knew left when sh*t hit the fan.  Wasn't worth it once they converted back to pounds or dollars.

Now's the time to go to Russia.  Everything is so cheap if you have a major western currency.

I get paid in every currency so what ever happens in the world I'm ok.. look after number 1.. as for loosing on currency for Brexit? it really doesn't matter to me , I'm not a hypocrite and always do as I say other wise I don't open my mouth and gob off!

I. voted for Brexit and would be very happy to take any consequences from that vote.. if the pound went down to 3cents I wouldn't give a dam ! Its life, fix the problem and move on.. Im a person of principle and would do what ever it takes and make WHATEVER sacrifices were need to LEAVE the EU dictatorship Full stop!!
If that means starving for 3 months so be it!

I made lots of sacrifices to get myself to Russia including sleeping rough on the streets, sleeping in a tent for 4 months in a forest and lots more!

I dont moan!! I do!

ok I misread you, thought you were doing that IN Russia.  You would have frozen in a tent.

Funny I was in London just this summer and didn't see no tents.  Where is that, by Hyde Park?

I was in all the major areas like Oxford St, Piccadilly, Knightsbridge.  saw a few homeless bums begging for money but nothing like a tent city.

Try going in some of the subways.. last time I was in London probably every 50 yards there was a beggar ! Actually its against the law to beg I was thinking next time I will sit in Oxford street on a nice chair I would of purchased in Harvey Nichols , in a Versace suit working on a brand new Mac book.. with big cardboard notice saying "No money for a new charger please help" When the police come to remove me as of course they would (They turn a blind eye to real tramps) I will call the press and make a big story about it.. one law for one and another law for another.. :laugh:

A couple of days before the pound went up by quite a bit against the euro and dollar.

That's what happens, it is normal.

Short term changes do not signify much, the longer term trends are much more meaningful.

Daily or hourly changes are publicised to scare the children and others expected to know nothing. And yes, for traders to make profits from.
...everything ends always well; if it’s still bad, then it’s not the end!
