Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For an outstanding article on  the impact of a no-deal Brexit on UK food security, read Ian Dunt's excellent article here. (Ignore the silly trivialising opening paragraph which has apparently put some readers off - if you believe the comments).

Politico has taken a more light-hearted analysis of this serious topic in how Brexit will kill the sandwich

Do these people intend to save every digital bit of GBP "in case" its trading value, denominated as USD and INR, rises or falls?

Say, yes.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
