The pound rose as high as $2.066 in earlier trading, before paring gains slightly to $2.064.

This is not down to a strong Pound, it's purely down to a weak Dollar, the Pound against the Euro is very weak.

i think its a combination of a weak dollar and a strong pound due to the high interest rates we have been experiancing.

You'd think so wouldn't you but if you're buying off a proper U.S website you have to pay that wretched thing called VAT when the goods arrive in the country, if you risk buying off Ebay U.S it's a little different as long as you make sure the seller labels the goods as a 'gift'.

If it's under £18 you don't have to though :)

Unfortunately true. It's weak against several currencies currently.

I am one of those rare Brits that actually wish we were in the Euro, it is proving to be a far more successful currency than our over rated Pound.

GDP is all important, and the UK's is very low. Turning towards services and soft skills is not necessarily the answer. There needs to be a balance.
