It's all very complex - but it's very unlikely that Le Pen will win. I'd anticipate changes in the EU over the next few years to solidify the economy.

Pound down this evening to 1.1601

They haven't had the run-off yet Jimbo but you're right the non-party Macron should win.

Next up Italy in early 2018. The 4 anti-EU parties over there account for over 50% of the vote as I type. That will be interesting especially if the ECB withdraw quantative easing as the year unfolds when the Italian banks will be in trouble.

Those who bought last week were wise. The euro has strengthened a lot after the French vote almost ensures a victory for the pro-European Macron. The fears of Frexit seem to have been allayed, and everywhere apart from the UK the mood is (narrowly) to continue with an ever-stronger (on the world stage) EU.

So the TravelFX rate is down to 1.1634 as I write.

Only just read any of this I have always loved the Olympia and I hope people will at least give it a try.  Its serves consistently good food.  Year in year out. 

I went to a restaurant here last weekend and there were 6 of us so we were charged a standard service charge - was in very small print at the bottom of the menu.  maybe Olympia is the same if there are more than a certain number.

I know this is last years post but we are fast approaching 2017 season and I hope the Olympia is still a place where people will try for themselves.

The thing about the French elections are that both Melenchon and le Pen have anti-establishment views on the EU with the latter wanting to leave the euro and a referendum on EU membership while the former wants to take on Germany and challenge how things are done via their monetary policy. A second round run-off between those two all bets will be off.

Well, it fell back a bit again. Looks like the 1.17x level is the new norm on TravelFX.

The next major event is the French elections. First round on Sunday - but that will only be resolved on May 7. France is now as divided as we are. A victory for the extreme Right's Frexit policy will almost certainly turn the euro into rubbish.
