The idea is to favor solutions over prejudicial knee jerk responses. I don't think that happened here.
I am exempt from prejudice, and only speak out of pity. Not of a prejudicial nature since I know that a persons gender, race, sex preference, religion and even their nationality are not problems. People have lived side by side in peace before. It is ignorance and the stirring of hatred by upstarts, fabricated stories and lies spread around to cause division and hate. Yes, ignorance causes a whole lot of problems, can even make people vote against their own best interests and I think it played a large part here in this referendum. I am entitled to my opinion. Every opinion is not a prejudice. You may be used to speaking to people who agree with you, and that is why you confuse opinion with prejudice. Maybe a little too simples.

... I say buy 'fish & chips' or the local stocks plying Fish-&-chips...
but Do-Not try to imagine a profit for buying British monetary 'Pounds' hoping for a super increased value (say $3 USDs per pound) ---- Its just not gonna happen any time soon !


silver sterling coins will gain as the silver spot increases but the paper pound is destined for the penny-stock area


just a heads up ats members

"Majority of Brits"? Jesus your maths is sh.te. 17million Brits voted to leave out of a voting population of 44million and total population of 65million.


It was the majority of Brits whose voices count. If you are not eligible to vote there's a reason for it. If you are one of the millions who could vote but didn't then you obviously don't care enough about your future anyway. If you can't even be bothered to cross the street and spoil your ballot and exercise your democratic rights then I don't really care what you think.

I really hope Brexit motivates our nation to start manufacturing again.

We may never have been the most prolific, or even best value manufacturers, but damn do we believe in quality. It's rare to find something built by Brits that isn't excellent. We need to start doing more of that!

Not exactly....

I think the thing with Scotland is...

They're so very proud (as they should be) of their recent gains with their own parliament etc. that Scottish politics has really had a boot up it's arse recently.

But, unfortunately, many have let the pride cloud their reasoning and will blindly vote in whatever direction Sturgeon tells them to!

If England had voted with their leaders, we would have remained also, as our remain campaigners were, essentially the entire House of Commons and our leave campaigners were clowns.

Really proud of our little island for ignoring the propoganda and fear and voting for sovereignty. It really annoys me to hear so many ignorant people saying this has anything to do with immigration or racism, when in fact, us Brits are very proud of our culture, heritage and nation and would likely have voted the same way if there were no immigration crisis going on. We're far too proud to be ruled over by another nation or group.

I have not heard anyone say that they voted out because they don't like brown people...

I have also never heard anything but complaints about the EU since we got more involved, way before the referendum.

Next step (whatever way you voted) is to start encouraging local business and manufacturers again. Buy British food! Ask shop owners if there produce is British and if it isn't shop somewhere else! It won't take long for retailers to pick up on it. This could be a real time of prosperity for us all if we start voting with our £££'s...

Great idea! If we arent too picky about shipping prices, shopping on British ebay would be a good move to buy direct from the citizens!

What an amazing gesture - thank you!

Britain voted for democracy and the ability to hire and fire their leaders, even though it may harm their pockets!

As a result of their decision to leave the EU, Britain's future financial health is uncertain.

its not, its pretty clear its screwed, 'project fear' became 'project fact' before the result was announced with every brexit politician proclaiming they couldn't believe people fell for their lies.
market levels are at world war 2 levels and are getting ready for article 50 to fire which, will plummet it further.


So I thought, What can I, an average American Joe, do for our friends across the pond that have seen the light and rejected globalism?

leaving europe prevents globalism how? there are 5 continents you know?
brexit was based around racism and democracy, racism has spiked post brexit, the tories are about to undemocratically push a new leader on the country, globalism?


It's made by an English company.

in taiwan.


Anyone else have ideas on how we can help our friends weather the economic storm that's coming?

hope the world enters a new recession along with britain.

None of you were interested in the reasons to leave, you were all too busy calling everyone racists and saying the sky would fall in your hope to maintain the anti democratic status quo of the EU



hope the world enters a new recession along with britain.


So you hope the world burns because you didn't get your way?

Now the rest of you see what we leavers fought against.

Not really, have a look at these graphs.





Yellow is measured in gbp, purple in euro.
It shows quite a loss in terms of value, the second graph shows that the gbp is not recovering.
In fact my prediction is that it will lose even more value in the coming weeks because of the news of today.

The post stated market levels were at WW2 ones...whatever that means, since you can't actually measure the FTSE 100 in that way.

Currency fluctuates all the time, if you really think the pound will fall indefinitely then you'll no doubt short it hugely.
Thing is, this correction, which is all it is, has already stalled as people are seeing value again.
How long before rising exports as a result of the low pound start pushing it up again?

Can't do anything about the Euro zone as they have some crises coming with some of the Italian Banks and also looming industrial unrest in France, Spain and possibly Germany, none of which is down to Brexit.

Just as equities tanked then bounced back, currency will do the same.

I know there's a tendency to try and talk down the economy by some folks as a way of saying "look what your freedom cost you!" But to my mind it's not nearly bad enough for us to have any regrets and when the euro blows up as it will, we will be blessed not to be joined at the hip with the EU
