    Good news for us Brits. Apparently the brexit-related price-hikes related to the pound are coming to an end.

    Next and Morrisons predict end to Brexit-related price rises - https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/sep/14/next-morrisons-brexit-price-rises-weak-pound

    I got a bit sick of people blaming brexit for hiking their prices when we haven't even exited anything yet, and the fluctuation of the pound:dollar and pound:euro has been much greater in the past and we never saw country-wide price hikes then.

    Apple seem to be charging £1000 for a phone, or $1000 - so they don't give a tosh about the actual value of the pound or dollar by the looks of it.

    Dow breaks through 22,000, boosted by Apple - as it happened - https://www.theguardian.com/business/live/2017/aug/02/uk-economy-poised-rebound-2018-forecasters-predict-business-live-bank-of-england?page=with%3Ablock-5981a825e4b0d340766ccb80

    Apparently towards the end of 2018 we'll be pretty much back to normal.

    No more excuses from suppliers to increase prices and blame brexit when they're actually just making a few quid. :D

    Brexit related or not, I definitely noticed in the last year or so a lot far eastern musical equipment went up in price significantly I suppose Euro related. Guitars amps that sort of thing. I'm still definitely glad we voted to leave and it cant come soon enough.
