Let the 'fun' begin!
Good move to leave the sinking ship. The Swiss also see the ship sinking and tore up their boarding pass. But Turkey still wants to climb in?
So can we have our lightbulbs back now please?
Call me opportunist, but now seems like a good time to order spares from the U.K. while the $US is stronger. Who knows, it could even make Royal Mail look economical.
What's the betting they put up their charges shortly?
Who? - and what have they gone and done...?
The who are the 51.9% percent of the population voted in yesterdays referendum to leave the EU.
is just my personal opinion of the outcome.
What they've gone and done is actually make me think about exercising my right to Italian citizenship and probably a lot more besides...
Oh, OK, Brexit.
No text beyond a vague title and one emoticon left me wondering...
Well, I just wanted to express my disappointment at the outcome without it becoming overtly political.
Interesting times ahead for sure. ::Neil::
A lot of hedge funds and currency speculators took a good spanking.
Interesting times indeed!
I live in Moray, the split here was 49.9 leave 50.1 remain, very, very close.
I also live near a school crossing and I get to hear what the average person thinks.
The reasoning I have heard for leaving has often been depressing and I get the feeling that people who do want to leave expect things to carry on just as they are as if leaving the EU was a straightforward affair.
Does this mean that we can now ban the 'Continental Breakfast'?
New issues have now arisen. The majority of the North of Ireland and Scotland wish to remain within the EU. So what now..
I am one of those who would like England to stay.
I could see other solutions than leaving.
As Al says, then the trade will not stop, as I sure am going to buy some English lamps now .
I hope you get on or even better come forward to EU again, but with the reservations that saves your integrity .
Ask yourself what Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard and a host of other brilliant, honest, sincere free market thinkers think of the EU and weigh that against what the politicians and other crooks of the establishment have to say. The answer is very clear. Maybe not painless in the short run, but best nevertheless.
If you don't know them, google them or go to www.mises.org, www.corbettreport.com and www.lewrockwell.com
I presume that's a reference to the low pound against the Euro currently. I don't know how long it will last but it just struck me as the international 'money men' positioning the markets to either protect their collective asse(t)s, or, more likely, to try to make a quick buck out of any instability. It's their standard working model, the b'stards...
Anyway, the low pound will help our exports. It's an ill wind...
Sounds like the big banks ( i.e. Goldman Sachs etc) punishing the economy but like you said David, they will benefit in the end. Dastardly deeds and the long game they like to play. I just hope you all stay safe in this mess.
I think as a Danish member of the EU David. We can afford our own money - the crown.
As the danes didnt want to loose integrity, we demanded and were given reservations.
Among the reservations was our own economy, our own justice, and our own army, so we kept our "soul" so to say, but still as a member of the market and farm/fish/industry-politics/rules.
Instead of yes or no - we set those demands - like it or not, or else we left the EU.
I still think EU have done a lot of good stuff, despite the rules we have to implement all in all.
I would still like to see England forward again in the EU - demanding reservations to maintain the integrity of your people and presenting the English influence to the Union.
Perhaps we could go back to a proper measurement system (imperial) instead of metric now!?
In all seriousness, Goldman Sachs and the rest of the bandits will punish the Uk for this but our exporters and industry will be grateful!
Until such time that you may be burdened with export/import charges.
It isn't just about economics.
Does anyone really expect a land border between Northern Ireland and the Republic to be tolerated by the majority in the north.
And if you'd have stayed awake all night and bet £5 a point on the USD/GBP, you'd have made just over £7k.
One visage of the Union:
Or those in the south maybe? The abolition of crossing control was one of the great results of the Good Friday Agreement. The Republic will strive to maintain the common travel area but what will the new British government chose. A EU "lite" with free travel from Ireland to Britain....We will just be a back door for others to enter the North or UK and vise versa. Some serious consideration needs to go into all aspects of the border considering the majority of the north chose to remain in the EU.
Two opposing choices from The Register:
I chose Leave, not for an economical reason, not for an immigration reason, but for the simple chance of getting our country back from a political union devoid of any democratic basis.
The market place does not belong to the EU, it's global. The standards set by the EU more often than not come from the global UNECE, but many EU regulations add complexity unnecessarily. We can continue to trade with a world that wants our goods and services, and that includes the European countries. There is no animosity towards Europe, nor should there be. But there is animosity towards a Political Union whose sole intent is to eradicate individual Nation states in the name of 'harmonisation'. I don't want to be 'harmonised', I want to remain British in a Britain that makes its own laws, has its own courts unfettered by some foreign court, and welcomes immigrants that come to study, work, and maybe stay to benefit the country they have chosen to come to.
We now have an historic opportunity to re-build our Nation. Let's not crap on it from within.
But in respect of non-EU nationals it is already a back door is it not? If a non-EU national enters the ROI they can cross the border into N Ireland and the rest of the UK. But if they don't have a UK work visa they cannot work legally in the UK. Don't see why it would be any different for EU nationals.
