    Plop. It just got more expensive for the government to borrow and the rating agencies say this won't be the last downgrade.

    Well done Leave! Another feather in your caps.

    Shame about reality. :sad:

    Never mind. He's pleased. And pleasing the human frog is what it's all been about, after all.

    No, they shouldn't report on it, because it makes something that doesn't actually matter that much and make it seem like a big deal which does not help the economy one bit.

    It's actual financial news. People want to know.
    Crazy you think the news should be censored.
    If it doesnt matter, then nobody including investors will pay any attention.

    Its creating more bad news, bad news on top of bad news creates more uncertainty not less, the more uncertainty the less l;ikely investors from overseas will Invest in Britain. Also it will make our home grown investors worry about the potential equity they may invest in there business, and entrepuners will also spend less money and this will lead to a slow painful recovery. First port of call restrict the bad publicity from the Media

    I think I would rather avoid imbeciles talking about stuff they know nothing about and stronger markets and economy than having every idiot talking **** about what they don't understand.

    People who want to know should know how to find out, these are things that should not be in the mass media but specialised media where most people actually understand what the **** things mean

    To be fair, most of it is doing well but there are some sectors suffering massive losses that are bringing the whole index down

    FTSE 250 on the other hand certainly is brexit though.

    Sure there was plenty of stuff people didnt understand in the referendum, but it didnt stop stoires being published.

    What other aspects of life and the media would you like to censor, until you feel people pass your test of being worthy?

    Would you be censoring the internet as well?

    Crazy and dangerous.

    Here's the thing, your opinion is just as worthless as everybody else's. Nobody has any incentive to care what you would rather have.

    Triple A rating means absolutely nothing, until the Conservatives politicised it. In reality, our borrowing costs continue to fall, even after Brexit; that's the indicator to watch.
