He's just keeping public the decline of the pound, of course all the currency traders will read the news and cause even more decline of the pound.

When the pound reaches 90p there will be a real media push about it, parliament will discuss joining the euro and sterling will eventually become history.

Thats the way it looks to me....or

The tories will keep up this prediction stance and be seen to know how the economy works so they play the public with the 'told you so' card hence giving the public more reason to vote for people who can see the future better.

Sterling is finished, they'll probably be tied in with the Euro by the end of the weekend. Ossie is just giving the heads up to the speculators, George Sourros or the Rothschilds could collapse it in two trades on monday morning, if they so desire.
