I wasn't talking about any correlation between the value of our currency and future prospects, and I wasn't implying anything of the sort. I was disagreeing with your assertion that the value of pound is now as it was in 2009/2010, because it's not, and not anywhere close. What that has to do with the future of the country is not for me to comment on, as I don't know. As for why I think the EU is a viable economic construct, again, I'm not an economist, and don't know. I'm simply concerned for the welfare of all the Eastern European vegetable pickers who do a great job in the farms around my 'other home' in Lincolnshire, poor people. Because, of course. they're all going to get sent home, as the 'leave' brigade voted for. (I hope, of course, you can see where I'm being tongue in cheek.) As long as I get my current return on the dollar, which is much greater than at any point in '09 or '10, despite your assertion otherwise, so i guess I'm in the 'i'm alright jack' category. On a serious note, I admire your persistence and your interest in the subject, but I'm not really that bothered. More going on closer to home to care about. Before i go, oh, look, I just converted $100 into £75 - loving this Brexit! Now I can afford that microbrewery i always wanted.
