Now is just not the time to change lira back to sterling.

But now is the right time to buy lira, but then you have to hope that when the time comes that you want to change it back to sterling again that the rate has dropped, obviously providing you are prepared to take the gamble that it does drop and does not increase.

The only time people lose or gain with Lira vs Sterling is when they exchange them, until then you are simply sitting on a time bomb not knowing what will happen or when it will happen, or IF it will happen.
