It said there was "now little doubt" that Brexit had caused customers to delay their summer holiday plans.




Like the 10% to 20% increase in holiday costs resulting from the Brexit sterling devaluation wasn’t a factor.


Oh well.
Can’t tolerate being wrong, can you?

Thomas cook was going bust regardless of brexit. It’s been losing money for years.

It joins the ranks of poorly run companies, that conveniently blame Brexit.

Nope.

If sterling was a factor, they'd have gone bust in 2009.

Because of Brexit
F*CK Business.......Thoma s Cook were forced into adminstration by the fall in the pound and Brexit related uncertainty.

The fall in the pound has been caused by Brexit. Back in the real world, the pound is already being treated like a volatile emerging markets currency as the worst performing currency of a major country.When Britain voted to leave the European Union in 2016, the pound was worth nearly $1.50. Since then, it has steadily lost value and trades today at just above $1.20.


Brexit positves confirmed so far:
Blue Passport
Brexit 50p
Lots of British Fish




Anyhoo Cona_n when exactly did the U.K. & U.S.A. agree this trade deal that comes into effect that day after the U.K. leaves?

There is a serious lack of competent leadership professionals in the U.K. at top level jobs.

Thomas Cook's first holiday was a day trip from Leicester to Loughborough - the good thing is that post-Brexit Global Britain this will become the holiday destination of choice for Brits and they'll be able to relaunch.

Weird how Sony, Honda, Panasonic, Unilever, Barclays, Diageo, HSBC, Bank of America, Nissan, Panasonic, Schaeffler, Airbus, Philips, UBS, Hitachi, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, Ford and Thomas Cook etc are all doing a project fear.

Just 4 months after Thomas Cook's warnings were dismissed as another example of 'Project Fear', the company's gone bust. Will Brexiteer heads finally start coming out of the sand?

With the sunny uplands of Brexit just around the corner, business should have been booming?

But yes, like he says, the pound continues to tank and reach parity with the euro by strengthening again to 88p to the euro.

Businesses up and down the UK continue to close, unemployment reaches record highs as millions lose their jobs

Even the Brussels Broadcasting Corporation hasn't come out with the 'because of Brexit' bollocks......

It is not Thomas Cook's fault that Sterling has tanked and consumer confidence collapsed?


Now Cona_n when exactly did the U.K. & U.S.A. agree this trade deal that comes into effect that day after the U.K. leaves?


Cona_n?

As much as it pains me to say it, I have to agree with you Triggs.

I had a relation who used to work in a management position at TC's head office and she was saying circa 2014 that it was nothing short of a miracle that TC was still operating.

She managed to jump ship (sic) last year.
