    So do I, I'm just waiting to find out what direction we are going in and if there is any control, both of which seem to be lacking in the UK negotiation team.

    You hope? Not trashing the economy in the first place would have been more effective than virtue signalling and pointing fingers at the enemies of the people.

    Apparently the rise is mainly driven by rise in clothing and shoe prices. Good news for us scruffy old gits!

    So the recent 30% price rise of butter, cheese, coffee, tea and biscuits seems to be irrelevant.

    food inflation slowed down, dipping from 2.6pc in July to 2.1pc in August, reducing the intensity of the pressure on the weekly shop.

    Trashing. Virtue signalling. Enemies of the people. You've got the wrong person.

    With Brexit looming this is a Scrodingers Cat situation , when the box is opened (Brexit Terms and conditions are known) then pound will go up as the uncertainty stops , I have a lot of money riding on this , of course when they call its name (lets call it Boris) and it no longer responds then that's when the pound slumps back again.
