Indeed. 😱

But at least we still have the delights of yesterday's transfer deadline news to cling to! On that, at least, I hope we can agree. (y)

(I don't think I've ever seen TWoWS as bouncing as 23.01 hrs last night)
Such was the general euphoria at our January business last night, I’m half expecting a unexpected baby-boom in Exeter and it’s environs come the early autumn G2K. 😎

Sadly (or thankfully!!! 😀) that ship sailed from the Mr & Mrs 2k harbour many years ago! We'll happily stick with the ones we've got if you don't mind.

Always problematic IMO to do as you have done and ascribe extreme emotions like hysteria to anyone’s posts on here Art. I’m not sure hysteria can be gleaned from the written word with any accuracy. I think you want me to be hysterical because it suits your narrative around Brexit to view Leavers like me getting all hot and bothered about it. Were you being hysterical when you posted about austerity and started the post with repeated use of the word “cnuts”? Maybe. 🤷‍♂️
On a macro economic level I’m still struggling to see the damage you and the hysterical remoaners are seeing. As evidenced by the IMF yesterday revising UK GDP growth last year to the highest in the G7.
Sorry to disappoint you, but Brexit will not be an issue at the next election. The Tories will have nothing to boast about and Labour won't want to talk about it. So just calm down

The Exeweb Age Census results cast doubt on this

Interest rate decision day again today. So will it be .25, .50 or .75 do you reckon? The Fed went with .25 yesterday.

0.5% is my guess.

And I think that's what has been factored in. Wouldn't be surprised though if they wimp out with a .25

We also get the BOE prediction (FWIW! 🙄) on growth for the U.K. economy today. It’ll be interesting see to how it compares with the IMF one earlier in the week.

Don't look at me. My career at stud didn't go that well.

And you'd be right. The correct move too at this juncture. One would hope that's the last of the monthly 50 base point rises.
