I now know why the share jumped last week. Thought it was down to bigger workload with the possible bank withdrawal tommorow, i was wrong :)

Unless the froggies are going to print trillions and trillions of pounds, fly over in a WW2 bomber and drop them, destroying our economic recovery in one foul swoop.

They only bought it because it had a French sounding name :lol:

Is there any obligation on De La Rue to print UK banknotes? If not, perhaps the new owners might choose not to print sterling. Then where would we be?

Reuters news says they looked at a machine "Fabrik in Weimar" and decided to go for the French sounding one instead. Something about the German one possibly having a curse of some sort. :blink:
