"Parliament must vote on whether the UK can start the process of leaving the European Union, the High Court has ruled."

Pound up nearly 1.5% in 12 hours and still going, looks like the children may eat this Xmas.

I am not so sure. MPs are supposed to vote with the majority of their constituents, making Scotland's 56 MPs vote to 'stay', as will the 18 NI MPs. This now tips the national balance in favour to stay. I am not going to work out how the rest of the MPs will vote but the Tories won over 50% of the seats with under 40% of the votes. I could work it out but heck there is a cold beer in the fridge with my name on it.

Stokkevn I was under the impression that voters voted for the person who best represented their personal views in the certain knowledge that not all views are going to be respected or reflected.

I think it should be a general election with MPs from all parties making it clear what their position is. any mealy mouthed double talk should be met with de selection.

I am convinced that if this happened then Brexit would lose out heavily. Example how many Sunderland Nissan workers now realize that their jobs could go to Europe, they never believed any possibility of that, I suspect they are not so sure anymore

What irritates me is that I pay taxes in the UK still but will not be allowed to vote

If you pay taxes in the UK I believe that you are entitled to vote for both referendums and general elections. Voters vote for the local candidates who should follow their voting lines.

As an expat you can vote in general elections, referendums and EU elections for 15 years after leaving UK. Not for local voting or mayoral voting.You need to go online to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote and fill in form for British Citizen living overseas. This is then sent to the council you were last registered to vote in and they will register you and send you postal votes as appropriate.

I believe the 15year rule is to be amended. Not sure when the change will take place, or for how long the 15 years will be extended.

Watch out for the result of the Supreme Court in the first week of Dec. If they say that parliament has to vote on Brexit the pound will jump, if they don't it will drop.. My next transfer will be 14th - any one out there with a crystal ball, or better still inside info?

For those who are looking to have a large capital investment here this year there is something that maybe worth investigating. I just caught the end of a news report this morning that there is a good possibility that the UK may devalue the Pound ( anything up to 10% ) due to Brexit. Have had a quick look through the normal business web sites but have drawn a blank.

Why should the Pound be devalued when the rate of exchange is determined by market forces. Since Brexit, it has dropped in value against the USD by more than 20%.

The pound is weakening fast yet yesterday it was up against the peso. The pound may be dropping like a stone but the peso is dropping even faster.

Yesterday the Pound was up 4% against the dollar, 3% against the Peso and nearly 3% against the Euro.
