As I understood it the £ has gone down more than some others because of the large share of our GDP that comes from the financial sector.
Whilst I don't think the current govt are *particularly* good I don't think the others would be any better, possibly worse and definitely further from my idealogical standpoint. I would rather have a competent mid-left government in power but I'm basically sh*t outta luck on that score.
Long live democracy eh....
We need PR desperately.
