A strong pound is never great
even if you go on holiday, the bureau de change will get you.
It is an illusion that the strong pound is good for the consumer, but yeah you will feel it when it falls away if you are buying. It is good if you actually work the system, but even then you can get stung on import taxes.
The falling pound is the last piece in the jigsaw for the recession, traveling labour will not flock to the UK and you will see price rises across the board for items imported and the local market.
It will also make it more expensive to offshore, but of course offshoring carried a setup cost as well, and to bring it back where it is more effective will cost again. Very brutal times ahead.
Well gold, silver, commodities are the place to be at the moment. But select wisely, you don't want to buy in when it is overvalued, UK land for example is a very bad deal at the moment, there is a lot further it can fall, what with the exodus of the indigenous and the now exodus of the immigrant.
And of course commodity buying increases inflation which further depresses the value of money. It is an interesting self fulfilling prophecy, normally the only way out is an appeal to loyalty but I think Labour cashed that cheque a long long time ago.
