Re: Ah, the year 1 school of thought
"Marmite is made here blah, blah blah". It's like the morons who say "look, the sun is shining, why don't we close all the power stations and go solar".
really, Brexiters should realise they are intellectually outgunnned and try and maintain a dignified silence. (Vain hope, I know).
Quite aside from the fact that transport costs (y'know, petrol, oil, gas, and energy in general) are priced - and paid for - in dollars, there's the little fact that foreign companies (like Unilever) are going to have to keep their FOREIGN investors happy.
If that means whacking prices in pounds up 10%, then that's what they have to do. And will do.
Followed by every other company that has to pay dividends in non-sterling currencies.
There were repeated warnings that Brexit would create a UK vs. the rest of the world scenario. Now it's started, it seems some people haven't the stomach for the fight.
Too late was the cry.
Just wait until after Christmas when the projections for 2018/9 are flowing in. Then we will really see some price hikes. Along with some players possibly abandoning the UK as unviable with such a low pound.
