Yesterday saw the Brexit divisions between the UK and EU laid bare ahead of Theresa May's arrival in Brussels today with an angry outburst from EU Council President, Donald Tusk. At the end of a joint press conference with Irish Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, Tusk in an obviously premeditated move commented "What that special place in hell looks like for those who promoted Brexit, without even a sketch of a plan how to carry it out safely". As the pair posed for photos, Varadker was heard commenting that Tusk would get “terrible trouble” from the British press which prompted both to laugh. The comments have prompted anger from leave voting MPs at home including arch-Brexiteer, Jacob Rees-Mogg who tweeted “Mr Tusk is hardly in the Aquinas class as a theologian and he seems to have forgotten the commandment about not bearing false witness.” It seems unlikely Mays visit is going to get anything done today and we are likely heading to the wire before we get an agreement or an extension to Article 50 if we aren’t to drop out of the EU on the 29th March on WTO terms. Despite the hostility, GBP/USD remained unmoved on the back of Tusks aggression holding steady during the afternoon. This morning it’s taken a dip lower however, possibly on the likelihood of more Brexit warnings due to be issued by Bank of England Governor, Mark Carney who is due to give a press conference to accompany the latest interest rate decision and quarterly Inflation Report. GBP/USD is currently hovering around 1.29.
