Brexit: the impact so far

With decisions regarding Brexit still uncertain, has Brexit had any noticeable impact on your life?

So far Brexit has made no difference to my life but I look forward to actually leaving and being able to use our money on what we want it for.

Re: Brexit: the impact so far

I have noticed a few differences since Brexit, fuel creeping up, the sterling dropping against other currencies. These things do impact me personally impact me but I was aware that there would be fallout from the Brexit vote.

Re: Brexit: the impact so far

I have noticed grocery prices rising again. Also well known brands raising prices because of the impact of Brexit.
I am mid decorating and have noticed paint and wallpaper is a lot more expensive as is household furniture.
I am making wiser choices and budgeting more.

Re: Brexit: the impact so far

I have recently returned from a holiday in China. Brexit has indirectly caused the pound to devalue and therefore I got less to spend on my holiday when I exchanged currency. I say indirectly because I feel that actually Mark Carney, the Governor of the Bank of England's over reaction to the Brexit vote and the lowering of interest rates have done more to devalue the pound than anything else. If he had responded in a more positive way and stressed the advantages when the result was announced i feel this could all have been avoided as is evidenced by the raising stock markets after Brexit!

Brexit: the impact so far

Brexit has made no difference whatsoever to me
There has been a slight increase in prices for certain things but I feel once we leave Europe (the sooner the better), prices may go down again because there will be competition but only within the UK
Once we are a Great Britain again, I feel most people will be grateful that we made the right decision

Re: Brexit: the impact so far

We have not even left yet and already the £ is plummeting and then creeping up a little just to fall again. It is at an all time low which impacts upon anyone travelling abroad whether to the EU countries or further field.

It has meant that petrol is going up, air fares are rising and holidays are getting more expensive.

Those coming to visit the UK are laughing as they get good exchange rates.

Prices in supermarkets are creeping up and interest rates are at an all time low.

The banks are already making plans to move their head quarters from London as are many of large businesses we have based here.
