Sterling nears the $1.33 mark as UK manufacturing soars to 10-month high


The month-on-month increase in the level of the headline UK manufacturing PMI was the joint-biggest rise in the near 25-year history of the survey, Markit said.

UK manufacturing production increased at its fastest pace in seven months during August, the research group added.

There has been a rash of triumphal posts from Vote-Leave types; and now a burst of celebratory gunfire from the cheerleader of the mouth breathers.

Well burt, when the year turned, sterling stood at $1.47.5. Wake me up when it gets back there.

So the only criterion by which to judge Brexit is the exchange rate? I would prefer to look at the movement of the trade balance, employment and GDP. On those criteria, no great harm has been done so far but then nothing has actually changed so far either. It is still only speculation as to what deal we get or if we even leave the EU. The Americans have already gone from "we are negotiating a deal with the EU and an independent UK will be at the back of the queue" to "we are sick and tired of trying to get a deal with the dinosaurs in Paris and Berlin and would love a separate deal with the UK as soon as possible" Reality soon asserts itself.

My view is still the same as it always has been. We need to abolish the EU commission and all of its suffocating rules and corruption. The rest of the EU I can live with.

I have often explained that you have already, already paid for  Brexit and consider everybody up to speed with how Brexit has tilted an exchange poker game to the UK players' disadvantage. The 10% you lost is probably enough to satisfy predators this year but they will be back to do it to you again soon. After all, the Enclosure Act didn't happen once but time and time again.
Work-time regulations, pensions protection, consumer rights etc are all now in the cross-hairs of the architects of Brexit. Nice work, tony.

And just as you are the poor relations of the card game, by every other measure, your house, your pension, the money in your pocket, you have been lowered 10% in international standing. Because of Brexit.

Wonderful. So you also think the increase in sterling under a Con Goverment has made us all much richer?

You'll be out on the doorstep encouraging everybody to vote Conservative in the next election, yes?

The biggest cost of Brexit so far to the average citizen over 40yo is the fall in interest rates. It will cost me about £1500 in the next year but I have made a lot more than that from increases in shares due to the fall in the pound and I bought a lot of dollars before the vote just in case. Exchange rates rise and fall and although of course the recent fall was caused by Brexit, there will be many more important factors affecting the rate in the years to come and the Euro is completely stuffed anyway.

And, still waiting for any Remainer to explain why non-EU territories like Liechtenstein, Norway, Isle of Man, Guernsey, Iceland and Switzerland are schitholes on average.
It'll be a long wait.

And using the change in the Jungle index in the last 2 months ( that's the population of the camps around Calais ), Britain has never been more desirable. The door's still locked though lads.

Japan's government has warned that Brexit could result in the country's firms moving their European head offices out of Britain. The strongly worded report from Japan's foreign ministry says the firms might want to move "if EU laws cease to be applicable in the UK".It calls on Theresa May's government to behave in a "responsible manner".Downing Street received the report earlier this week, the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg understands.Japanese firms employ an estimated 140,000 workers in the UK, with Nomura bank, manufacturing giant Hitachi and carmakers Honda, Nissan and Toyota all having major bases in the country.

The letter warns: "Japanese businesses with their European headquarters in the UK may decide to transfer their head-office function to Continental Europe if EU laws cease to be applicable in the UK after its withdrawal." Specific companies are not mentioned, but the document states that it was written in response to "a variety of requests from Japanese businesses operating in the UK and the EU". The report was published on Friday before Prime Minister Theresa May went to China for the G20 summit, where she will explain what Britain's decision to leave the European Union might entail.

At the G20, Mrs May said she would use the summit to scope out trade deals so they could be signed quickly after the UK's exit from the EU. President Barack Obama, however, stressed that the US would prioritise trade talks with the Asia-Pacific region and the EU.

The Japanese report "strongly requests" that the UK government will consider Japanese investment into the UK and "respond in a responsible manner to minimise any harmful effects on these businesses".
It urged that Britain and the EU set out the details of the Brexit process "as early as possible".
In particular, the document says Japanese firms would like to see the following agreed between Britain and the EU:
Maintenance of trade in goods with no burdens of customs duties and procedures
Unfettered investment
An environment in which services and financial transactions across Europe can be provided and carried out smoothly
Access to workforces with the necessary skills
Harmonised regulations and standards

Ahead of the referendum, Japanese firms, including Hitachi and Nissan, and the country's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned investment could fall if the UK left the European Union.

Barack Obama believes Britain was wrong to vote to leave the EU and has suggested it is still at the "back of the queue" for a new trade deal.

The US President used a joint press conference with Theresa May to warn that while he does not want to "punish" Britain, there is a risk that the trading relationship could "unravel".

You weren't listening to "experts" then, tony, so no wonder you're in denial now. Obama has gone out of his way to say that the UK won't be "punished" for surrendering to Brexit, rather - despite the "special relationship" - the USA won't go out of its way to protect the UK from self-harm.

Which seems fair.

I don't deny being with Cameron and Osborne. Agree Brexit changes the dynamic - I would rather see a Tory government reverse Brexit than Corbyn in power. Don't talk down to people until you can spell like a twelve-year old. Brexit is a disaster for the ordinary people of this country.

You could hardly expect Obama to say anything else after 8 years of trying to get a US/EU trade deal. If he favoured UK he would be alienating France, Germany et al. Privately I am willing to bet that the US are impatient for us to leave and strike a deal as the EU are unlikely to sign one in another 8 years unless the whole culture of the commission changes. In any case Obama's presidency is effectively over so his views no longer matter.

I have first hand experience of the way the EU operates. I had a farming business in Brazil and we supplied a large meat plant there that spent a lot of money in the 70's bringing their abattoir up to EU standard and were assured that if they did so, they could export to the EU. 40 years later they are still waiting because the French farming unions can veto any meat imports from south America. You can't believe a word they say about anything. Look at what is happening now with EDF.

The funniest thing is that Guardian writers try to prop up regimes like that regularly. Then again you think Venezuela is a socialist paradise, so you aren't going to disagree are you?

Don't tell me about the press. I know exactly who reads the papers. The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country; The Guardian is read by people who think they ought to run the country; The Times is read by the people who actually do run the country; the Daily Mail is read by the wives of the people who run the country; the Financial Times is read by people who own the country; the Morning Star is read by people who think the country ought to be run by another country, and the Daily Telegraph is read by people who think it is.

Aye, the establishment you hate that feeds you, clothes you and pays you to sit online to throw abuse at it while refusing to contribute. As opposed to the establishments you love which would have murdered you for being a waster.

Perhaps you should say a little less when in a tantrum if you don't want people to comment on your welfare issues?

If you spent your time trying to get a job instead of sitting on the Internet throwing abuse at people you wouldn't be in the situation you are. Too much like hard work though isn't it?
