    the £350 million a week that the NHS is receiving as a result of Brexit is worth considerably less now. *

    It has always been overvalued.

    So how is devaluing it going to help the country?*

    I think if Trump doesn't win the US election, he will use the change in his pocket to buy Britain.

    Good idea for an investment
    Too volatile for investment , although if you had put in 100 dollars 5 years ago you'd have around 200k tho.

    the poorer people will suffer more. 1 quid from 10quid is a lot more than 1quid from 100quid
    (Original post by azizadil1998)
    yeah but every time it drops significantly it's only for a short amount of time and then it picks back up again quite a bit, so I don't think there will be THAT much effect on poorer people, unless it means supermarkets pass on the possibly slightly increased costs of importing their products to customers which again is unlikely unless it continually drops. Why would you say it would increase inequality? I'm only asking not trying to make it sound rude.

    the 350m was never going to the NHS, no one who had power actually said they would get it . Nigel said that to get people to vote for leave

    My thoughts exactly!*

    People who are buying the lie that the pound was over valued anyway should stop and think.*

    yea but i highly doubt prices will rise by £1 that would be quite significant, especially when you have european chain stores like lidl and aldi here, prices will be kept low'ish one way or another..

    but i personally think the exchange rate will eventually pick back up again atm its just people panicking. we'll see though!

    Couldnt care less, the increased value of my investments has more than covered the falling pound value.

    Regardless; having a weak pound isn't necessarily a bad thing.
    same here!

    If people think their money is overvalued, I will be happy to exchange it with my wheel barrow full of Venezuelan bolívars

    Yes, all prices in Britain will only rise by a maximum of 99p.

    No it's fine,won't have a huge impact on prices. Good for British exporters
    Yeah lets forget what the experts have said, we did that when we voted brexit why not continue having that mindset

    interesting :curious: I thought it was a popular investment opportunity
    He's right tbh, a few years ago mining or investing in bitcoins was very profitable, but they're worth nowhere near the amount that they used to be. My best mate and I used to mine them but we ended up giving it up after a while, just not worth the effort.
