I am for Brexit, and Weetabix and Shredded Wheat.

I am also for Farage, "England, Harry and Saint George" (especially Harry looks quite nice).

But not necessarily in that order.

I don't use support and resistance breakouts. Interesting comments though. I am also for Farage for sure. Take back Britain.

There won't be any Brexit, you can be sure of that.

Cameron has exactly the right line on Europe....negotiate better economic terms not just for the UK but as a means of bringing the EU to it's senses. As for more centrist political union...well that is just dead in the water. I have no doubt that he will garner much support from other countries inside the EU. Perhaps all they were waiting for was a strong lead from an economic voice big enough to matter.

I guess we will see when the 2017 "Brexit" referendum comes around. The GBP has been falling since the turn of the century and since the advent of the Euro.

I think this is right.

Cameron will produce some way of recommending a "yes" vote to stay in, after getting some sort of concessions from Europe, which they will offer for him to be able to produce them here (maybe not in this forum, when I say "here", but in this country, anyway).

It will not satisfy his backbenchers like that nice Jacob Rees-Moggy-The-Pussycat, but he will manage it anyway, is my guess.

Strangely, Brexit was more likely after a Labour government, in my opinion, because Cameron would have resigned (of course) if Labour won, and then the next Conservative leader would be a Eurosceptic or Euroscepchick, and so after 2020 there would have been a Brexit.

But now probably not?

Not at all sure what you're point is re GBP currency.

hhiusa started this thread A country's currency is the basis of their economy. For instance when the US economy is strong the dollar is off when US economy is weak the dollar is down. The British pound has been sinking ever since the turn of the century, hence the British economy has been sinking at least when compared to all other foreign currencies such as the SEK, DKK, NOK, CHF and EUR. They euro zone has acted as an anchor on the British economy.
