Sterling plummets from £1.32 in June 2016 to £1.06 against the Euro today. Looks like parity long before October 31 No Deal. On the other side of No Deal where will Sterling be? And what turmoil awaits the London Stock Market?

No photo description available.

I predict a recession but of course it wont be declared til after 'Brexit then the blame will be put - wrongly onto EU as has been attempted for the past 3 years

OMG!

Time to buy that expensive tea set from Amazon UK which I had eyed for a long time! :rosey:

The Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney said a no deal Brexit scenario would be an instantaneous shock not just to demand but to supply

I hope all countries are prepared to this no deal October. They can't act surprised. Let's hope that that bunch of useless turds don't let us fall into another chaos like when Greece went bankrupt.

She's thick as shit and everything she's saying is lies anyway, but in this post-truth world you can say any old shite and get away with it. Just playing to her audience, although I'm sure Carol and Brian from Grimsby will be raging when they find out their Yorkshire Tea ain't actually grown in Yorkshire!

OMG.This catch phrase so describes the world we are living in. Unfortunately it's so true :(.

A US-UK trade deal will not get through Congress if Brexit undermines the Good Friday Agreement, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives has said.

Democrat Nancy Pelosi, whose party controls the House, said the UK's exit from the EU could not be allowed to endanger the Northern Irish peace deal.

Her comments came after the US national security adviser said the UK would be "first in line" for a trade deal.

Philip Hammond, until recently Chancellor of the Exchequer "leaving the EU without a deal would be just as much a betrayal of the referendum result as not leaving at all"

He has accused Boris Johnson of shutting down any hope of securing an agreement. But the prime minister’s team continues to argue that Britain must leave the EU by 31 October.

The new government took office three weeks ago, I and many of my like-minded colleagues have chosen to keep quiet and give the prime minister the time and space to set out his plan to deliver a Brexit deal. But now it is time to reiterate our support for Boris Johnson to deliver on his public and private commitments towards a deal and his assurance that no-deal is a “million-to-one” chance.

The early signals are not encouraging. The move from demanding changes to the backstop to demanding its total removal is a pivot from a tough negotiating stance to a wrecking one

Boris Johnson has accused former chancellor Philip Hammond of undermining the government’s strategy with a “terrible collaboration” with the EU to thwart the UK’s departure from the bloc.

During the first “People’s PMQs” — a Facebook Q&A where the prime minister answers questions from members of the public — the prime minister delivered a coded critique of MPs opposed to a no-deal Brexit, such as Mr Hammond, who have taken a public stand against his strategy.

“There’s a terrible collaboration, as it were, going on between people who think they can block Brexit in parliament and our European friends,” Mr Johnson said.

Watched this on Four Corners the other day.  Boris Johnson is so manipulative, untruthful and also cunning.  He knows that crazy buffoon image also distracts and gives him attention.  Sickening.  Brexit is an absolute mess.

What an outrageous statement to make, and with the intent of demonising and pilloring those who wish to remain.

If he's going to allege collaboration then he better produce the evidence.

It's yet another example of Johnson's tongue getting out of control.

Food, fuel, medicine shortages and rioting on the streets. Not exactly the SUNNY UPLANDS promised, eh?

Thank God, i didn't purchse the ticket for the MX Palladium show 😂

Well, some us have suffered and will continue to suffer the consequences of such moronic right-wing driven decision, end of freedom of movement. A decision some of us did not vote for nor were allowed to. Charming to see that some may be amused, however light hearted in reference to Madonna's Palladium nights the above comment might be...

It now appears that this dossier is the most up to date one.

I'm fed up with being told lies, blatent lies, and spin by so called government.

MPs are supposed to be our servants, not the other way around. This government is treating their electorate with distain, in a manner approaching the Soviet norm. They need to be reminded of this time and time again!
