Nige I agree. Boris has lost the plot. Worse case senario for us was always a No Deal exit and i can't see that happening now. I don't think he will get an election before 31st October so the only option is extension to 31st January. He says he won't ask for that so he will have to resign.
i think the results were far better than PSN and TW last results. Those share prices have risen this morning. I also bought a few more Barratt today but I didnt get in at the low. Next divi 36.8p, ex-divi 10th Oct ( 5 weeks away). We should see £6.50 before then.
Brexit In preparation for Brexit, HSBC announced that it will be facing as much as $300 million in legal and relocation fees as it plans to relocate 1,000 staff members from London to Paris. In the second quarter of 2017, the bank had $4 million in charges for "costs associated with the U.K.'s exit from the EU. HSBC plans to move roughly one-fifth of its London-based investment bankers to its Paris offices in order to maintain a continuous access point to the European Union's single market. While its headquarters will remain in London, the staff movement is expected to avoid a loss of $1 billion of revenue after Brexit.
