    Joseph made the comment that this has never happened before. Actually, history is full of examples of states exiting a political block to become self-governing. In most cases it has been economically favourable (though not guaranteed). Great interview.

    So brexit vote brought down the £. The £ has been falling for 100 years and also topped 2007 and then 2014/15. Brexit is almost irrelevant. As it happens £ strengthening. Nothing to do w brexit. If it were according to him and the establishment £ should be crashing

      Like when UK kept the £ rather than joining the treacherous euro. Brexit will be the salvation for the UK when the Euro Titanic, already sinking, goes under.

    The UK stock market follows the US - always. Another way to look at this thesis is, just at a time when the EU is about to weaken due to the ECB relaxing its stimulus... the UK treasonously rejoins them, just as they begin to fail, thus taking the UK down with them. May's head needs to roll.

    As an aside: Administration talking about a lot of revenue coming into the US coffers. This is not about trade. This is a border tax that Congress will not pass. DLS

    What proportion of UK FTSE 100 earnings are from US dollarized profits? If the dollar continues to rally, wouldn't this be a more prominent driver than EU uncertainty? Using the FTSE 100 as a proxy for EU-UK trade frictions doesn't seem a solid indicator to me.
