That this House notes the comments by Professor Ashoka Mody, former IMF Deputy Director for Europe, that the depreciation of sterling following the EU referendum is desirable from every point of view and that the idea that Britain is in crisis or on its knees before the exchange rate vigilantes is ludicrous; further notes the associated comments by Lord King, former Governor of the Bank of England, that Britain was borrowing five to six per cent of GDP to buy imports and live beyond its means, and that the strong pound was great if you wanted to buy a Mercedes Benz or take a holiday in Spain, but that prosperity was an illusion, borrowed from the future; and notes Lord King’s conclusion that history is going to judge that Brexit at last broke the political economy lock of a British elite wedded to banking interests.
