Do you really not think the pound against the dollar might be more to do with the dollar's collapse under Trumponomics? The pound is still 12% down against the Euro despite a recent recovery. The consequent food price inflation (compounded by British producers leaving crops unharvested because they can't get the EU workers) is a permanent bit of doom and gloom. Why do we keep mentioning it? Just in case anyone dares give the (now younger) electorate another go.
