    What is amusing is that the 350 million per week is peanuts compared to how much everyone in Britain is poorer after trashing the pound by voting to leave the EU.

    I'm alright Jack

      That's right. I've just sold my first born son for a loaf of bread.

          I'm really struggling to see how I'm poorer.

            I'm definitely not 350m poorer.

              That's not altogether surprising.

                It might take some time, but you'll figure it out in the end

                  A weekend in Paris might seem a bit more pricey.

                  And 2 weeks in Spain will cost more next year. As will a German car.

                  And anything that needed to be transported from A-->B will go up in price.

                  But on the plus side, if we see a sustained period where the exchange rates are below $1.3, then we should start to see a shift away from a consumption led economy towards more manufacturing. Which I think is the one thing that most people agree on : "We should make more stuff"

                  Of course it will take years for these effects to play out.

                  Just think of the people who are here but sending their money home. They've just taken a hell of a pay-cut.

                    Won't be worth coming here soon.

                      Probably because it's not happened.

                      My pension pot is up £40k. Does that make me poorer?
