          This will more than hurt exporters soon enough after the raw materials dry up.

          You do realise that Sterling was at near parity with the Euro back in 2008/2009?

            IMF forecasts are out in an hour.

            Incidentally IMF claimed pound was overvalued 10% before it dropped 10%

              Got £20k in Sterling. Should I switch it to Euros now or not. Stick or twist. Leaning to twist.

                Two Ferraris Clarkson doesn't scan quite as well though

                    That's a 10% depo on a studio flat in London. Go to UK and get another loan. Buy as residential. Rent it to a friend. Sell in three years. By then the pound will have bounced because sterling interest rates will have gone up. Euro interest rates cannot go up, due to Greece and Italy. Then sell your property, buy euros for sterling. You will make a good profit.

                    Buy in the right place. Scale mortgage to rental income. Choose tenant wisely. What more can I do? - put the cash in your hand myself?

                      So we might as well join the euro then.
