@kate1028: the slide in the pound means that our imports are exponentially more expensive.  The UK is a net importer, so this has an effect across the board.  Incidentally, I live in London.

If the sliding pound is causing inflation to rise here then what's causing it to happen in France?

Not that I'm great fan of economists,yet theyve continuously stated having the pound above 1.40 is no good for the country and were always stating it needs to be about 1.30 for a happy equilibrium.
High pound benefits retired ex pats abroad but thats about it.

@tooltrader lower pound means higher prices like petrol, wheat, coffee, sugar, medicine and everything else that is priced in US$. Also, holidays abroad and everything that is imported over here.  

But our exports are cheaper so it's easier to sell abroad.

@kenralph I understand where you are coming from, but I do belive a vote is a vote won weather it be by 1% or 100%, after all I'm not sure Bet365 would let me put my bet on again after losing first time. Lol, and all this talk is nuthing but speculation not will currently knows what will exactly happening, I mean you could say it is very close to scare mongering.
