The poundâs slide against the euro has begun to trigger concerns on the continent that the UK is seeking to gain a competitive advantage over its European Union partners, the FT reported. Sterling has fallen by more than 25 per cent on a trade-weighted basis since the autumn of 2007, raising the question as to whether Britain is letting its currency fall to help its exporters at a time when the eurozone is falling more deeply into recession. I am not concerned ! I ask myself why we have not yet reached 1,0000 EUR / GBP ?? Pound should be hammered into abyss !
