  • ?1.15 average in the UK High Street.

    But expect that to drop as the weakening VAT rate kicks in.

  • "Britain is considering joining the eurozone as a direct consequence of global financial turmoil, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said Sunday".

    Well, we might not have to worry about the exchange rate at all in time ?

  • The problem of parity with the euro now is the locked in loss, since the euro
    currency existed.

    For a pound to euro like conversion - that loss would be 22 percent.

  • So, what is going to be for the best then ?
    Cut our losses (huge as they may be) and accept one euro to the pound or carry on as things are and ultimately end up in 'negative territory' and be picking up less than one euro to the pound ??
    Was it really about 1.6 euro to the pound in those early days or is my memory playing tricks ??

  • The Pound is on the way of hitting a new record low againt the Euro today.

    ?1.11 average on UK High Street.

    It makes the average ?3 a pint (large beer) here expensive. More expensive
    then the UK! Where the average profit is 70%. It must be at least 3 times that here.

    But there are Happy Hour offers to look out for...

  • The Pound did hit a new low againt the Euro.

    This really does reflect how badly the UK economy
    has been handled in the past 6 years.

    Drinks and Dining out are now looking on the expensive
    side here. ?3 Large Beer...

    Even lower today (11.12.08) ?1.08 average UK High Street

    ?1.07 average UK High Street (12.12.08)

    Lowest Pound/Euro Rate Hit (13.12.08)

    ?1.06 average UK High Street (14.12.08)
