Fxempire was recommending Tesla last year as a solid investement !!
Sterling is recovering slightly because of encouraging news that the self imposed execution might not take place on October 31st. The impact of the retail figures was minimal, what does an increase in retail sales mean? Consumers are ....stocking up on ...baked beans and sausages readying themselves for October 31st . :lol:
On a serious note, those with money are buying now in order to save money when prices shoot up on November 1st. They ate really over reacting since the execution might well be postponed, dare I say cancelled ??

BORIS SET TO END SUPREMACY OF EU LAW IN DAYS

Boris has directed Stephen Barclay to sign the official order to end EU law’s supremacy in Britain, a move that Steve Baker described to The Times as “absolutely totemic”, proving Boris is “willing to leave on a fixed date with no question of extension. It’s the do-or-die pledge in black and white”. Just one of the many jobs May never got round to doing…

Whilst MPs voted for the EU Withdrawal Act in 2018, which repealed the original legislation making us members of the EEC, it required a “commencement order” to come into force, which Barclay is expected to sign imminently. Not only does the Government’s move show Boris is totally serious in his Brexit pledge, since it does not involve MPs – by which Guido means Remainers – Parliament cannot interfere with the process. Surprise surprise, Dominic Grieve is not happy. The Tories’ wannabe Remoaner in Chief begrudgingly admitted that he can’t stop the order being signed. He’s reduced to admitting he will have to try to reverse it retrospectively…

But they’re not recommending anything Milti. They’re just pointing out that sterling climbed this week when the June retail figures came in showing a 1% gain after being forecast to drop by 0.3%. June. Johnson didn’t become PM until 23rd July. So, your explanation that the gain was something to do with a “Government of National Unity “ :lol: and Brexit doesn’t really hold water on this occasion.

Hold on mate. Sterling begun to recover a little the moment that all media reported
The likely scenario of Boris being removed.
The markets do not react on simply Retail sales figures, they DO NOT like Brexit.
It is an undisputed irrevocable fact. Go back to June 24th 2016 to confirm what Im saying. Brexit is BAD for the UK economy, do not Kid your self.The leavers , most of them, dont give a toss about economics, they will only react when the feel the pinch. All that they care about is .....regaining their ....sovereignty, which was lost years ago as a sacrifice to political correctness shit. Our economy will be dealt a ferocious blow if and when Brexshit hits the fan, or shout I say the ...funs !!!

Well, have it your way Milti. There are other references backing the retail thing up but you can only take a horse to water. Just another episode highlighting the volatility of sterling presently.

Given the ridiculous forecasts by all the main players on the remain team before the referendum, the UK economy’s actually been doing quite well since. Now of course, they’re at it again and those who want to believe it always will.

I’m one of those plonkers who think, the future of the UK shouldn’t be decided by the Forex markets and currency speculators.

My belief is that now it’s not so much Brexit that’s a factor, as the failure to deliver it.

People are never going to put up with going back to a pre-referendum situation. Whatever games they get up to, sooner or later, there’s a reckoning coming for a lot of people in this parliament. Mark my words.

as the article said this is totemic.

this is a bit like pulling in to change tyres, engaging the gear box before the tyre is fitted and finally being stupid enough to lower the handbrake and pressing the gas before the tyre is fitted. good luck with that.

clearly they realise they will not be there long and anything they do will be reveresed till we exit if indeed we do exit.

Oh dear, all not well with EU trade...?

The EU’s trade relations with South-East Asian powerhouse Indonesia have come under renewed strain with Indonesia preparing to slap a 20-25% tariff on dairy products from the EU in response to the EU whacking 8-18% tariffs on Indonesian biodiesel. How dair-EU!

Indonesia’s population of 260 million is over half the size of the entire EU, it’s currently the 16th largest economy in the world and growing at a pacey 5% a year. Indonesia’s trade minister is so cheesed off he’s ordered dairy importers to find new suppliers outside the EU. Indonesia is the fifth largest non-EU importer of dairy products in the world so this is no trifling matter.

After Liz Truss’s big cheese push at DEFRA, it just so happens that the UK will in a matter of weeks be the third largest non-EU exporter of dairy products in the world, and is about to regain control of its own tariff schedules, putting it in pole position to cream off the the EU’s market share. Brits get cheap biodiesel and textiles, while Indonesians will get top-quality Cheddar, Stilton, Yarg, Brie, Wensleydale and clotted cream. Perfect!


There was a German MEP who stood up today and admitted that the EU will be in worse off under a NO DEAL BREXIT. She said, German manufacturing could face a crisis, and slip into recession and she blamed the EU for the current situation with Britain.

She said that Germany and Britain have always had good relations and that the EU have damaged this relationship but that in the end their relationship has such a solid based that both countries will overcome the issues and repair their bilateral engagement.

She then turned to the other EU criminals and asked them what was so bad with the conditions asked by David Cameron. All Britain asked for is that EU migrants to the UK not be allowed to access the NHS and British Social Security immediately which is completely fair enough. EU recalcitrance bought upon this train wreck and now it's time to pay! :D


On one of the 2 documentaries I have seen on TV recently on the subject (Portillo. The trouble with the Tories), Cameron was asking the EU for 13 years of denying the new EU citizen immigrants of any U.K. benefits with the option to extend. The EU gave Cameron 7 years without any extension, so I don’t know what this German MEP is talking about the EU denying Cameron what he asked for.

These are two different episodes despite the same introductions in the beginning...a must watch of both episodes!

Episode 1.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AgpAY1ZpXY

Episode 2.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJoKZORogdI


Maybe that is what she was referring to.

She mentioned that Cameron's requests were not unreasonable and that the EUs positions in commandeering the British NHS and Social Security System to the rest of the EU was bad.

Either way, what Cameron requested was spot on. Britain couldn't afford to be the the EUs NHS provider and pay for every tom dick and harry who chose to take advantage of Britain's Socialist infrastructure. The reason why Britain can afford to have such great things for its citizens is because it could restrict access to other EU citizens. Otherwise even the Brits will eventually lose the NHS and other benefits.

This German MEP sounded quite reasonable and intelligent to me. She spoke the truth. Britain hasn't done anything wrong and just wants out of the EU.

There literally is no strength to that claim when BOJO has the support of some 20+ Labor MPs.

Otherwise go ahead and call a no confidence and embarrass yourselves like bitches! :D

There is no likelihood BOJO can be removed.

You are delusional! :lol:

If anything, the markets like BOJO because he is going to end all this nonsense in 74 days time and that takes the markets out of all the uncertainty which is exactly what the markets despise more than anything.

They would rather BREXIT occur immediately rather than all the speculation because they will always rebound after a short lived dip once the dust settles.

Markets are going down because Theresa May failed to deliver BREXIT.
