David you have to learn to read AND understand, I said “I have little sympathy for those that moan that the rate has dropped, what made them think it wouldn’t?” I never said I have NO sympathy, Anna Watson explains it quite clearly,
" there’s a big difference between a situation that is the result of a conscious decision, and a situation that is a result of a random twist of fate. The consequences of Brexit are between the two poles because whilst Brexit itself wasn’t exactly predictable, currency fluctuations and changes to the rules have always been on the cards."
Thinking that the exchange rate would never fluctuate is stupid and as I have said I have LITTLE sympathy for those people that thought it never would.
There are many , many occasions when I sympathise with other people, for instance as an eight year old I contracted meningitis I didn’t walk for 18 months some people including kids died or lost limbs, I was lucky I survived and ended up playing professional sports and represented Great Britain. Did I sympathise with those that died or lost their limbs? OF COURSE I DID.
Anna talks of fate, back in 2010 I woke up in the throes of becoming paralysed I spent over a year in a spinal unit, hours from death. Didn’t walk for two years but now I cycle 12 miles a day and swim one mile per day. I can’t feel my body properly my feet don’t lift up I watched six people including a ten month old child die due to their complications during the year in the spinal unit. Do I have sympathy for those that are disabled? OF COURSE I DO. I don’t believe in God mind you. I fund over 50k sterling per year (depending on the exchange rate ) on a hospice for young children it gives them and their parents a little respite. Sympathy, moi?
