Anyway @Markymark are you going to tell us what you said in the survey ?
It’s scheduled for about 2 weeks from now. I’m sure there will be a press conference. Maybe even one of those “we’re interrupting this program to go live to Downing Street for an important announcement.”

A couple of weeks? Yep, because there's loads of time to get this sorted.

I will shoehorn this in here.

May is in Africa looking at strengthening trade and British investment. What's the betting we will be investing in nurse and carer training and making sure the work visa application systems are running smoothly. It's what I would do.

She’ll come back lauding an amazing deal with various African countries that’s about 70% as good as the existing ones we have via our EU membership.

Well, I had my interview. Was a lot about finance availability and a lot about what my business expectations about brexit are in terms of finance, cashflow, growth, exports, debtors, creditors etc. I did say finance isn't a problem but for the country we need consistency. I suggested keeping Mark Carney on and they said they hadn't thought of that so keep an eye out on the news if they are doing what I suggested later.
I gave them the general gist that brexit won't affect sales directly as I don't export much but it will hit profits from cost rises linked to the falling £. It will hit sales indirectly as many customers are holding back on investment in brexit uncertainty however we are growing so can't be sure.
However biggest issue maintaining stock levels when most paper comes from Europe and storage in central London is at a premium, any delays at ports will cause me major problems. Will have to reevaluate JIT storage which will be time consuming, hard to manage and expensive.

....and hey presto, Carney will stay till 2020. What are tonight's lottery numbers, Marky?


BTW, I had no idea you ran a fish and chip shop. Perhaps you'll have to stop wrapping it in paper and use polystyrene boxes.

Yes I guess they listened to me and he agreed to my proposal.

No, not a chip shop. I print notes for the royal mint. I have some limited edition £18 notes I can sell you for only £10 each?

"He"?

So it wasn't the PM or the Queen? I thought you were important.
