Actually , there's a lot of truth to that. Financial markets aren't nationalist. It's all about numbers, and reality.

For an example of that, when the news broke about the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails reopened, the markets temporarily went way south. The general view of traders is that a Trump presidency would be a disaster for the US economy. When it looks like he might win, everybody sells. Because that's what the data tells them.

And it's true. Just as brexit is a disaster for the UK. And whenever there's new info that suggests an actual brexit, the pound gets hammered. If something emerges that the UK might not actually leave, the pound rallies. Because the actual data shows it just isn't good. The markets simply don't worship the union jack like the brexiters do. That would be irresponsible. They have a responsibility to follow reality. Or else they get fired.

Apparently not, if it's been hit by import prices.

Maybe the brown sludge it's made from is imported.

Yep. Back to the '70s, very 'old labour'.

Damned lefties.

You mean old labour where they used to stand up for the worker against big business or when they protected local industries against cheap imports?

Definitely is, it's made from brewers yeast after beer production and the original factory is supplied by Bass also in Burton

It is only the glass jars that are imported causing the price rise

Why don't they check out UK manufacture of the jars

Because they can pay small children in China or Malaysia far less to make them?

That's probably still cheaper than a packet of fags, mind.
