Jim Rogers v’s Gordon Brown. Round 2. Wonder who will be proved right?
Sir, While reading my favourite newspaper over the weekend, I was interested to see I was mentioned a couple of times. My quote that the UK “has nothing to sell” is exactly what I said (View of the Day, January 22), but it must be seen in context. It was in a paragraph wherein I was discussing the drying up of North Sea oil and the collapse of the financial system. The next sentence, “The UK has nothing to sell”, in that context meant: The UK has nothing to sell to make up for those two holes. I then went on to say that therefore the currency would suffer, so I think it was clear to everyone what I meant.
