Maybe there's something huge I've missed here but that's what it looks like.
HMG doesn't share our liberal guardian reader sensibilities though. He sees this differently.
I really don't, sorry. The first cracks in that sensibility were prised open by reading the observer supplements over many years and being told what to eat, drink and think to be an acceptable member of midwit society. If they're wrong about this, 30 year old me thought, what else are they wrong about. And so began a long slog to become the hyperborean carnivore bodybuilder you see before you today.
To put it more concretely, I'm not sure I can see how a big rise in the euro vs the £/$/yen etc. would help the Med countries particularly. Maybe Rich or HMG could weigh in here?
Edit: oh too slow. But then the question arises of why these countries joined the euro in the first place if this was such an obvious drawback?
Edit 2: Italy is only just behind the Netherlands in value of exports, and ahead of the UK: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_exports
Good points, although can you put the man himself to one side? Would it be the same under any other leader?
Was gonna say... can we put him aside... but then realised everyone else said it while I was having dinner.Putting the man himself to one side, I am not entirely convinced there is much difference between the UK & Hungary politically in 2020.
