"All you're seeing is the poor performance of the Pound on the international currency markets."
Which is a direct result of a bunch of xenophobic kneejerks getting their way.
Of course they'll now blame all the furrriners for the currency going titsup. "It's a conspiracy" they'll cry, "The Bavarian Illuminati are manipulating the currency!" and other claptrap for the red tops to scream from the street corners.
It didn't take Venezuela long to go from being a wealthy country to a shithole. The UK may have just said "hold my beer" to that challenge.
