you have to laugh at the BBC and mainstream media
The holiday season is in full swing. And whether you prefer sun, sand and sangria or meze, Metaxa and monuments, it can't have escaped your notice that the whole getting-away-from-it-all thing is a lot more expensive at the moment. At least, that is, if you're a Brit bound for the eurozone. The pound is touching 10-month lows against the euro at the moment at 1.0981 euros. And currency strategists at US investment bank Morgan Stanley are even forecasting that the euro could move "beyond parity" with the pound on the currency markets for the first time ever in early 2018.
