Its a nonsense story.

Exchange rates fluctuate.

One of the reasons we've done so well to retain the Pound where the rest of Europe sold themselves out to the euro.

There are always winners and losers.

Instead of leading with the increased investment from abroad due to the weaker pound with the added tax receipts, they go with a teacher doesn't buy a round anymore. :no

And why is that particular couple of any significance to the country as a whole? As they are teachers living in London, I would imagine the majority of their earnings will be spent on living expenses, in pounds. So the only effect for them on a weak pound is when they take trips home to Spain, the same effect as for the rest of us travelling abroad.

I do wonder how BBC researchers find some of the people who's stories they print. Friends of friends I assume, as some (most?) of them are somewhat bizarre and largely irrelevant.

Because the Trumpster had put nothing of any interest on Twitter?

I’ve just bought a house in Spain and the fluctuations cost me the price of a shiny new Motorbike......

First world problems, I know, but I’ve been carefully following the rate as I now have a Spanish account and Spanish mortgage with my only income from my UK business.

The rate is currently intrinsically linked to Brexit with lows occurring any time a risk of no deal is considered likely and spikes whenever the concept of a second referendum is aired.

I’m not sure why the outrage, the article is factually correct and the case study is just a demonstration of how some people are affected.........

I wanted a f*cking Ducati!!!!!! Dagnamit

At one time when you read an article on the internet you would cross reference with the BBC to ensure that it was factually correct. These days, if I read something on the BBC I immediately check other sites.

A huge fall from grace.

All bollox anyway, because quite frankly even if the exchange rate was 1:1 unless you are in Norway or a ski resort etc it will still be cheaper to buy a round of drinks pretty much anywhere in Europe than it will be in London.

Hotel in Reading - £6 for a beer, £12 for a glass of Pinot Grigio!  Not quite Oslo prices but getting close and nothing to do with fooking Brexit!  

It's all just propaganda bollocks in my very humble opinion.

All propoganda,   On a serious note the UK Goverment wants out the EU more than anything,    Getting away from the European court of human rights is the main thing and other countries security forces.

The UK goverment over the past decade, has done something that would make the KGB during the cold war era look like angels !

Why are you comparing a government to a security agency?  One sets policy, the other carries it out surely. So are you saying the UK Governments policies are akin to the old Soviet Governments? Which ones? I thought we'd only get these when Comrade Corbyn came to power :)

Go out. Plenty of decent drinking establishments in Reading. Never pay hotel prices.

I do!  Spending on average of 3 nights a week in a hotel in Reading for 2 years I can assure you I have tried just about every hostelry, drinking den, restaurant, cafe etc... :)

House of Flavours is very good yes!  Start out at Wild Lime as the drinks are cheap, then work done Friar Street to the most superb Thai Corner restaurant!

And not a BBC journalist in sight lol....
