Currency devaluation is never a one-sided equation, especially not when the value of the currency has been too high for too long.
The key thing of concern about weak Sterling is that we import a lot of things - 50% of our food is imported and lots of our energy. So, there will be winners in areas like tourism but the fuel and food costs will squeeze many too. Of course, if investors feel that they will start to invest in the UK again in the wake of Nissan's decision then Sterling may rise and those price rises won't happen.

Yes and Nissan are going to be increasing jobs (although the latter probably means we're staying in the Customs Union). It's not all bad news by a long shot. Just think it's premature to say we've avoided Brexit-related impact before we've even left.

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

Indeed ... Brexit hasn't happened yet. However the referendum *has* happened, and it is fair and reasonable to compare actual economic data with that which was forecast for the post-referendum period.

I think it's fair to say the data is mixed. GDP has encouragingly grown but the pound has plummetted and inflation hs inched up. Nissan has encouragingly reinvested in the UK but only after written assurances were received that it would not be disadvantaged by Brexit. Reported hate crimes have risen but this has not deterred immigration. So, a mixed bag so far.

There are many things which affect currency values not least uncertainty. We are by no means out of the woods yet but the head of the WTO stating we still are members and will remain so will help.

Being a realist I see turmoil ahead until the time we actually leave so I'm looking at 2 yrs. After that I firmly believe this country will prosper far more than if it stayed in the EU with or without free movement.

People can think what they want but I certainly don't think it's all over one way or the other and that includes all the problems facing the Eurozone which a whole lot of people seem to be overlooking right now. Prices will rise and fall with the value of the currency (amongst other things) and that will vary according to a whole range of factors, short term uncertainty being one. The Euro is going to come under huge pressure sooner or later as things over there start to unravel (Italian banking crisis, Greece etc etc etc) and at that point Sterling will look a better bet, the current arguments will be reversed and the same people will no doubt be panicking about that too. We can't hope to run our economy properly over the long term if people are going to panic and demand change every time something like this happens. We've suffered far worse inflation in the past and for anyone who lived through that, this is nothing. Tough times may lie ahead but the only other option open to us is even more uncertain IMHO so let's not give the impression that staying in the EU was in some way a risk free panacea.

One also should not blindly follow either as questions rightly should be asked and hopefully the right answers are given and not just believed just because certain media outlet's says so.

You can't just do that. Endless diatribe must accompany the piccy For example:

Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum and that is why Brexit will fail just like I told you so.

Re: Post-Brexit Thread

I can't wait the the morning we a free of EU red tape.

Then those criminals, rapists & murderers that the EU said we can't kick out, we can deport.

Then there are the people we want to go to prison and only leave in a box we can do so.

All those people can and should be deported. Some have argued that the European Arrest Warrant makes it easier. It certainly has helped secure the arrest of criminals from the UK who have fled to Spain.
