Currency Movement Restrictions Anyone?

Recommended Posts

I think this may already be happening, I recently was asked to row £21bn across the English Channel for a well respected MP and was stopped immediately I entered French waters, I was told I was going the wrong way and they gave me ten passengers to row back home!!!.

You mean like old-style currency controls? Not doable any more, IMO, unless they figure out a way to run the economy without plastic.

Agreed, not doable anymore. However, the suggestion brings back a story I heard in the seventies. A guy who had worked in Heathrow reckoned that the loaders there loved a Labour government. The reason was that they always screwed up the economy and hence the currency. With the resultant exchange controls people were tempted to conceal cash in their luggage and when the loaders nicked it the owners could not report it as they would be prosecuted themselves.
