Stories? Greece in many garages & shops were not taking credit cards at least three or four years ago, I know because I was there. You couldn't fill your car up until you told them how you was going to pay.

Here's fact, the then & now.

1 GBP/EUR = 1.2274 EUR on 27/04/2012
1 GBP/EUR = 1.17404 EUR on 06/12/2016

Of course people can quote the Dollar but next to the Pound regional wise is the Euro.

Thought that was unregulated and your money has no protection, good if you are happy to take that risk, I'm wouldn't that's for sure, but good luck with it.

Re: Watch The Lira Now

The impact of a weak Turkish Lira on inflation will likely become visible by the first quarter of 2017, but the impact will mainly depend on the pace of economic activity, Central Bank Gov. Murat Çetinkaya said Dec. 6.

Turkey may start to see weak lira?s impact in early 2017, but economic activity to matter: CB - FINANCE

That's my point chris, most people I know wouldn't touch it, you really have to be able to say "it's only money" if you lose it all, just like the stock market, it's about attitude to risk after all

Re: Watch The Lira Now

I've looked into various schemes/investments since coming back to the UK AND nearly took the leap a couple of times. Finally we have put those ideas/thoughts to bed, its not only Turkish emlaks who can be crooked, PPI, BHS, RBS etc comes to mind.
Once its gone it will cost you big money to try & get it back. The only thing I would exchange my (better say "our") money for is gold & nothing else.

This is what happens when an AKP President tries to micro-manage and implement politico/religious dogma control over , and override the CHP policy of independence, of Turkey's Central Bank .

Isn't that a bit dramatic considering the fact that no currency has 'an end in sight'.

Tell that to Mr Mugabe, he’ll be greatly chuffed

The problem seems to be that you're looking at how the sterling has performed against the dollar for the past 2 years.

The 5 year figures in #442 show a continued downward trend… British Pound Forecast 2016-2020

How would you feel about how the sterling has performed against the lira for the past 2 years.

You are comparing two weak currencies against each other – the GBP is stronger that the TL but that doesn’t make it one of the strongest currencies in the world!

There's more to the world of currency than just dollars.

The US$ is the benchmark against which all other currencies are measured.

I STILL, stand by my comment, ONE of the strongest currencies in the world.

The consistency of your inability to reason is admirable but lacking logic.

Sorry if I have confused you with facts.

How does the fact that you paid for these goods/services in GBP make it a strong & stable currency?

Only if you want to compare two sinking currencies.

When a currency loses 30% of its value it’s not a fluctuation it’s a disaster.
