Unsurprisingly the current political turmoil his hitting the economy. The pound slid 1% against the dollar to $1.6022, a one-week low, while the pound hit a two-week low against the euro of 1.1277 euros.
Nature abhors a vacuum, and until the political situation is brought into some semblance of control KPI's such as the exchange rate will be savaged by the markets.
On a brighter note, well done to Alistair Darling for clinging on to his job as Chancellor.
As to whether is this is a sign of his strength, or the Prime Minister's weakness, is another matter.
