In principle, little has changed for the currency pair recently. This session will focus on the testimonies of British Parliament Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s former Chief Adviser, Dominic Cumming, to UK MPs.
Cummings, who will appear before the members of the two committees investigating the joint Covid-19 pandemic, is expected to be very critical of the government and the prime minister.
