The EU have threatened not to extend A50 if BJ hasn't a plan in 12 days time. If that is carried out, it won't be doing BIRG any favours.
Just noticed that BIRG have reduced their online saver rate to 1.15%. I have a much better rate than this currently but only until the start of 2020. If the markets are a lot lower after the UK's departure from the EU, that will give me the opportunity for further investment into stocks rather than being parked on deposit at such low rates.
despite a US rate cut today the dollar has risen a bit over the day against sterling. Dow was up Ftse futures steady. A penny drop in a day is always possible, but balancing the above I would not bet on 52p. The market though may take the EU's empty (probably) threats of not extending unless BJ comes up with a plan in 12 days time, seriously.
The EU still say they need a good reason to extend as they have said in the past. There was no good reason to extend beyond the 29th March but the EU bottled it.
UK opposition parties had the chance for an election which they refused. If Boris, closer to the time of scheduled departure, says to the EU that he will not offer a UK election again in the near future, therefore no reason for an extension,would the EU bottle it once again.
Snige Did you mean to say that despite Soubry being a remainer, that Broxtowe elected the candidate whose party had in their manifesto ''As we leave the European Union, we will no longer be members of the single market or customs union'' and “no deal is better than a bad deal” .
