I seem to recall fFrench Francs being 10 to the pound just before Eurofication...
The point that people forget twenty years on, was that the doom mongers were the one’s who said we had to join the Euro or we were doomed. In actual fact if anything the pound remained the counterbalance that would under pin the EUro, not the DM as the latter was absorbed.ITL were over 2,700 to the GBP prior to the arrival of the Euro.
From the mid-60s to 1980, the Lira was about 1,600 - 1,700 to the pound, then leaped to over 2,000 in 80.
"Time will tell"So there has been no delivery of twigs, no holidays in Dunstable, no news of my mandatory clown service, and my car hasn’t be burnt out yet.
Aside from a curious shortage of black sacks the local shop seems to be well stocked, and I’ve not noticed any price increases.
I’m even getting a bonus at work, though due to covid is less than half what I got last year, but I wasn’t expecting to get anything, so it’s better than a slap in the face with a kipper caught in British waters.
When exactly are we going to be on our knees begging the EU to let us rejoin?
That would require some form of vetting. The reality is, he floats arount on his wifes coat tails turning up unannounced like a bad fart, joining conversations where people are too polite to tell the padres hubby to do one.
