It should be obvious to everyone by now that there won't be a 'chaotic no deal' so the pound has definitely bottomed out IMHO.  Shouldn't there be more demand for the pound considering the interest rate is higher than in Euroland, Japan and now even the U.S. ....

The BoE said its nine rate-setters voted 7-2 at their November meeting to keep Bank Rate at 0.75%, in contrast to forecasts in a Reuters poll for a unanimous decision.

 

Shock!  Horror!  😮

Labour has proposed renationalising water companies, which have been criticised for prioritising dividends and executive pay over preventing leaks and improving water quality.

Labour’s second most powerful man, John McDonnell, said earlier this year the government would pay less than 15 billion pounds to investors when it renationalises the companies.

oh dear, now Labour are going to nationalise internet access, free broadband for all 🙈🙉🙊

Labour’s #freebroadband proposal is a terrifying idea. The Corbyn movement is notoriously illiberal, censorious and hostile to internet freedom. Putting these authoritarians in charge of the web would be insane, says Brendan O’Neill

You find the prospect of fast, free broadband terrifying?  🤔

There are huge swathes of the country that cannot get good broadband or mobile access.  What will BoJo and his London set do about that?

We all know that trillions of dollars of fake money gets shifted about every day in the FX markets, it's made convoluted so that nobody understands it but it's basically free money that the big boys make for themselves every day ... a few billion on something genuinely useful is far more worthy.

when the state controls the internet,

That wasn't my understanding.  They didn't say anything about censoring or controlling the content, just nationalizing the part of BT that's responsible for the fibre cabling and infrastructure.  A bit like how the railways are part-nationalized, private companies only compete for the profitable bits so leaving the burden of investment on the taxpayer.

A bit like how English water is plundered to provide profit while there are leaks all over the place.

The British establishment are pro-Tory, even the Guardian and BBC would probably rather have BoJo than 'the ferocious antisemite' as PM.  So when you see news like below, long the pound.  :)
