    Evening - any other Brits on here worried about the potential impact of the a Brexit vote on the exchange rate?

    I have just hedged some of my bankroll for September's trip in case we vote out - which the polls suggest is closer then imagined.

    Has anyone else bought USD ahead of a trip later in the year?

    Cheers

    Do yourself a favour and don't mention you're British on here. It's a very xenophobic forum.

    As for the brexit vote, it's just a vote. Until parliament decides whether or not to go with public opinion I can't see much happening to the exchange rate that isn't already forecasted.

    Actually, it is not anti-British or xenophobic at all.
    Definitely anti-Wigwam_timeshare at times.

    I met hobo and pay triple (and others) last September for a craps meet and was made more than welcome.

    And parliament are bound by the result of the referendum - could have a major impact on exchange rates and Vegas bankrolls

    Comments like why should I care about an English mans opinion and various others show people's true colours (not yours).

    Parliament are not bound by the vote. They need to pass a law based on the result. Google is your friend :)

    Not sure if GFY translates to whatever Cockney dialect you speak, but yeah? that

    that was probably my worst roll in 12 months, and it had to follow Way2Fast's string of hardways for 20 mins

    nah I prefer to "cropdust" window-licking imbeciles like Wiggy with a fart as I pass
    I don't care enough about him to actually hate him enough to bother with more.
