UK trade secretary Liam Fox speaks to Bloomberg in Shanghai - 2 February 2018

  • Wants London-Shanghai connect as soon as possible
  • Says that UK PM May's middle name is 'resilience'
  • UK cabinet close to agreeing next steps on Brexit
  • Some in Britain still don't accept the Brexit referendum vote

Just some more Brexit blah blah blah so far. Is any one in the market still mildly interested with what they have to say these days? Well, sterling traders don't seem to be.

Though he does say they are close to agreeing something on Brexit. But can you really trust politicians?

Cable barely moving, now at 1.4264 - unchanged on the day. EUR/GBP similar, now at 0.8762.

"Hi, my name is Theresa 'resilient' May. A pleasure to meet you".
