Says the person who promoted brexit - which has caused more red tape - more expensive imports (oil & energy)- a corrupt government - deregulation - banned pesticides in imported AUS/NZ food - every 2016 pledge has been ignored or forgotten. Stop blame shifting - this is on you.
The desire to see 拢 fall is almost palpable from those who wish the UK to fail. It must be annoying for them to see 拢 recover this morning. The point of an independent currency for it to act as a shock absorber. Growth in the economy with weaker 拢 will boost exports + FDI

The sneering and snobbery that followed @BylineTimes' early reporting on the correlation between government policies and hedge funds convinced me we were doing the right thing in establishing an independent news publication - *outside of the system*
Just a quick shout out to all those journalists who mocked @BylineTimes coverage of the conflict of interest between ministers making market moving decisions, and their hedge fund donors who cashed in on them.

If you want to know what #ShortingthePound means, it means: 1. Making a truckload of money betting on the demise of your own currency 2. Making imports more expensive, fuelling the cost-of-living crisis 3. Making it too expensive for ordinary people to holiday outside the UK
鈿狅笍 It鈥檚 hard to overstate how serious this is. I could use various terms for this behaviour, but鈥 just have a read: [from Sunday Times]

If a professor's free speech and academic freedom are violated, Pierre Poilievre will protect that professor by... cancelling their research grant funding.
My message to universities: Protect free speech and academic freedom to keep federal grants. I will appoint a Free Speech Guardian, a retired judge, to ensure academic freedom is defended. pierre4pm.ca/poilievre_will_鈥
