With regard to currency, it all depends on where you hope to end up.

When I moved here in 1989 UK interest rates with about 3 times higher that Swiss ones and the exchange rate was £1 = CHF3.20.

As to the future of Sterling, I always though it can‘t go any lower, but it did. This has gone on for 50 years when there were 20 CHF to £1. We can perhaps see the future from past experience...
He is probably EUR based. UK has declined since the 1930s. It is unfortunate but the UK elites don't care about the GB pound, they only care about their properties.
