With the pound falling precipitously against the Euro, the mainland continental conquerors, as they're affectionately know here, can be seen entering in droves into the most English of stores like Marks & Spencers and Fortnum & Mason this Christmas season. They buy, buy, buy while Londoners sell, sell, sell.
Not too long ago, this frenzy occurred across the pond and somewhat in reverse. Then, the English bought, bought, bought while the Americans sold, sold, sold. I'm not a very bitter person, but once in a while it's nice to see the UK citizenry finally get a taste of its own medicine. Misery loves company, I suppose.
