The value of the pound has fallen from around 1.3 Euros prior to Brexit to around 1.1 Euros today. This is exclusively down to Brexit.
Or if you like, the same meal in France that cost £10 on the eve of the Brexit vote will now cost you £11.82 today.
That's an increase of £1.82 or around 18%
That car you had your eye on at £20,000 would now cost £23,600 , an increase of £3600
The TV that previously cost £1000 now costs £1180, an increase of £180
On a day to day basis this is repeated amongst many smaller purchases, food, groceries, clothing etc
Whether you like it or not we ARE worse off through Brexit. No debate thus far.
I know what your getting at but exchange rates are fluid. They go up as well as down. A country's wealth well being etc isn't measured by an exchange. Rate.
If you want something to worry about think about if we remain we will have to fork out for the e nvisaged EU military. Why is it needed when the EU states are already protected by NATO?could it be the beginnings of the4th Reich?Scarey or what?
Bear with me as almost everything you typed is wrong, so it may take some time.
1. You might not have breakfast in France but others do. And they ARE worse off. Fact.
2. You may have a TV but the NEXT one that you buy will cost more due to the weaker pound. Fact.
3. Same with a car.
4. Your holiday would have been cheaper were it not for Brexit (unless the holiday company is taking all the hit, but I doubt that). "Brexit protected" etc is just marketing fluff.
5. Exchange rates do indeed go up and down, but the Brexit vote has had a marked and immediate impact, much more than "normal" day to day fluctuations.
6. Actually a countries wealth IS measured, at least indirectly, by the exchange rate.
7. What EU military? Unlike every other point that you have chosen to ignore (which are facts) this is conjecture.
