    If anybody has a big chunk of cash in thailand now, sending it to the uk and buying pounds right now might be a good trade. In a couple of months the baht to sterling could well be back to 63 and you could send the money back to Thailand and have 10% more cash to play with. Of course, It could go the other way and you'd have less, but if it does Thailands exports get killed as the baht rises and tourists have less money to spend. That might force a devaluation, personally I dont see how it can fail and have already sent cash into pounds to try it.

    So, what you are basically saying is that the exchange rate could go either up or down?

    ^^ 4-months ago I said this:

    http://teakdoor.com/business-finance...tml#post651735 (Thailand's Baht, Peso --- Decline)

    Although I was incorrect about how soon the Baht would commence its decline. The net result for us interested in THB-GBP price is that we have some months of pain prior to the inevitable and steep decline of the Baht.

    that, if your right, is what i like to hear.......

    it seems that all the stress on having such a high exchange will impede overall the economy by way of tourism in this forth coming season. hurting the many people that survive on it to pay back loans on houses cars etc which would not just upset the exchange but disrupt a greater rift within an already unstable government and its feuding public!!!!
    im hot its so hot today.......milk was a bad choice!

    The traitors in the Labour Cabinet and their lackeys in the Banking sector should be put up against a wall and shot.

    They have done more irrevocable damage to the United Kingdom than an entire army of Islamic extremists could ever hope to achieve.

    However they are dwarfs compared to Margeret Thatcher, she destroyed British industry and replaced it with the "Service Economy".

    ^Labor had more than enough time to turn that around - but didn't. Fact of the matter is that Labor (as they are now) are Clinton-ite populists that (aside from Iraq) gave voters whatever they wanted. They were, and still are, a reactionary government. People in the UK wanted home ownership and a binge on credit. Otherwise why would they have had home equity release loans, etc.

    Sorry, I am no fan of MT by a long stretch, but I just don't see how TB and GB cannot put their hands up and say "we got it wrong".

    But I guess history will tell, long after I'm gone

    how ? once a century old industry is destroyed, it will not simply take a decade to restore it,

    Tatcher fucked it up, and went too far, you would be strong and more conservative like Germany if it wasn't for Tatcher liberal ideas,

    she destroyed England beyond repair, that was the consensus all over Europe back then, and now we see the direct results

    ^Sorry - as I have stated, I'm no fan of MT, but that is absolute bullshit.

    The Uk has never being willing to invest in new techonology or innovative ideas since the Industrial Revolution.

    Look at how many of the "advances" humanity has made - and look at how many of them have been done by Scotsmen - and then look at how many times the UK Govt. has put money behind that idea.

    Since WWII the UK Govt - including MT - has been willing to put money into National Health, Unemployment Benefit and Old Age Pension - but apart from Delorean and other car manufactures (notbaly in Sunderland), I cannot recall investment in the future occuring - both with Labour or the Tories.

    I was asked a question today:
    "Option 1: Would I prefer to pay higher taxes in unemployment benefit, etc.?"

    Or

    "Option 2: would I be happy to see my tax go in free gifts to bail out banks and get 'credit' moving again?"

    I went with Option 1 - at least we all know where we stand - no 'blank cheque'

    exactly, that's where MT fucked up. Capital investment incentives is fiscal policy (government), nothing else, this is where they should have focus their effort, instead effort were focus on propaganda and the privatization or the complete destruction of industries, not creation or renovating industries,

    Fuck me, change the bloody record will ya. MT left office almost 20 years ago, and people are still harping on about how she did this and that. As ive said before, I was much better off under Maggie, than this last set of losers. I`m actually worse off now, than I was 10 years ago.
    I aint superstitious, but I know when somethings wrong
    I`ve been dragging my heels with a bitch called hope
    Let the undercurrent drag me along.

    and the next government didn't do anything to change her legacy, they actually maintained it, so at the end she is still at the origin of the current mess

    I disagree. CI is more to do with the individual than the Govt.

    But we told everyone "spend what the fuck you want, and will still take care of you"

    Funny enough, as I have mentioned on this forum before, I knew JM (John Major) before he became Channelor and before he became PM.

    He was an OK money manager at Standard Chartered (out of Nigeria) -but he was out of his depth as Challencor.

    From the antiquated UK banking system I presume?

    My Aus - Thai transfers take 24 hours and can be done online.
