Re: Hang on. ...
The financial markets are irrational, responding to unexpected changes in largely unpredictable ways, while nothing changes about brexit they're straight back to checking whether birds have started the winter migration when predicted and counting cracks in the pavement before tossing a coin about how they feel about it! Makes it very easy to pretend nothings wrong.
While May is still stonewalling it would be wasted effort for business to do more than contingency planning and inadvisable to go public about the details. The longer May waits though, the faster they'll be able to move later, so it's only borrowing against the future disruption.
Meanwhile the voting public haven't been affected by the fall in the pound, price rises haven't worked through yet on imports. Brexiteers are loudly shouting about exports and if you don't look hard things look great. The ones that know what's coming know they should spend now not later.
I'm left wondering what would have happened if Boris&Gove had succeeded in their cynical plan to delay signing A50 for years. Hard to believe this lull before the storm could have lasted that long.
