PM Johnson loses another vote, Parliament suspended until 14th October…

The Prime Minister had another day to forget yesterday, losing his 6th consecutive Parliamentary vote. Once again, his plight for a snap election was voted down. This puts the new PM in an increasingly tough spot. Parliament has now been suspended until mid-October and it is now understood that Johnson, with the aid of his close colleagues, will franticly attempt to find a loophole around the new piece of legislation blocking a no-deal departure on the 31st October.

Yesterday afternoon the speaker of the House, John Bercow confirmed he would stand down on the 31st October should a general election not be voted for. Bercow has been a thorn in the Leaver’s side or a beacon of light for the Remainers; he’s undeniably been a focal point within certain parts of the Brexit process. He will now be standing down and removing himself from what is set to be a tumultuous period of the ongoing saga.

Today’s calendar it a quiet one with only a single piece of tier 1 data which happens to stem out of the UK. This morning sees another snapshot of the UK labour market. A consistent bright spot of the economy. The outlook is set to remain solid with job creation continuing, albeit at a slower pace, and wages rising too.

Testimonials

Our Clients Say

"I have had an association with Cornhill for over a decade and have had the pleasure of working with the same broker for the entire period of time, which is currently just over 15 years. This shows not only my dedication and customer loyalty to the company, but also their commitment and successful staff retention. The level of service I have received has never waned or altered and has been consistent over the term. Keep up the good work Cornhill. Dominic you are a legend."

Helen - FD, Essex Boatyard

"When deciding to buy a property in France, my husband and I failed to consider the implications of the currency exchange and to be honest, it was extremely daunting to know that the cost of the property could have increased significantly potentially wiping out any renovations we had planned had we sat on our hands and left it to chance. Thankfully, Dominic (our account manager) and the rest of the Cornhill team couldn’t have been more helpful, and as such helped us to understand our options and secure a price that puts our bank to shame. Always courteous and friendly, we don’t know what we would have done without them now!"

Samantha Johnson - Private Client

"I work to very tight margins in my business and as such currency volatility has a major impact on how well my business performs. After dealing with my bank for many years, I took the step of opening an account with Cornhill after meeting one of their team at an industry event. James took the time to explain the services and quickly highlighted what I was missing from my bank – proactivity and competitive pricing. It’s almost impossible to get through to someone at my bank without jumping through many hoops. Cornhill are always in touch at the right time, which helps me to time my currency purchases and make the most of moves in my favour. I now rest easy knowing I have a team of people working FOR my business and adding true value to it both in pricing terms and proactivity terms. My profits have increased and I know I am in good hands!"

Martin Fisher – FD of a Packaging Business

"My products are made abroad by trusted suppliers who I have worked with for many years. After a number of issues with my previous currency provider (payments being delayed), I decided to look at who else could help with my payments. Fortunately, I was introduced to Cornhill by a former colleague who uses their services. Since then, I haven’t looked back. Customer service is often overlooked in this ever-increasing digital age, but to know I have someone to call at the end of the phone who will listen to my query and take ownership of it for me is a breath of fresh air. Vivek and Greg have been reassuring and whenever I have a question for them, they are quick to respond and resolve."
