The flip side is that continental banks will have to relocate to London if there is no deal.
Deutschebank made an announcement along these lines the other day.


The thing is, tarriffs and trade barriers will hurt everyone, not just the UK.
Cooler heads will prevail. There are noises that Merkel is going to get Juncker fired because of the pressure from German industry.

Nothing is set yet, and for every negative someone can see there is a positive side too.

So much of government and big media is invested in the EU that they just can't break free of the fear.



ETA why mention Ryanair in that post at all then?

Well if it worked as you say in the real world, we wouldnt really need the EU would we?


Apparently you didn't need the EU for the majority of your country's history. Why did that change in the last few decades?

Some folks saw the chance to make money, gain influence and belittle the nation they hated.

It was a merging of seperate country's economic system's and a loss of control over those same system's (which suited the Corporations not the people of Britain OR Europe very well indeed) and was intended originally to help the infrastructure of those nation's (The EEC) which consisted of a much smaller block of western European country's and though our fisheries suffered very badly as a result and quota's were introduced to cut down our produce those quota's were then compensated for with EU subsidies meaning our farming industry became financially addicted to the EU even though it was in many way's bad for it.

Now the UK has to go cold turkey just like an addict but the drug it has to go cold turkey from is the financial benefit's of the EU membership (which were growing ever less valuable in the overall scheme of thing's as the EU expanded and drove wages in it's wealthiest member state's down thank's to a German leader and his aim to do just that.

One of the greatest downside's for the UK as the EEC got out of hand and morphed into the EU was the loss of our trading partnership's in the former Commonwealth nation's as a result of EU imposed trade embargo's on NON EU import's and other EU tinkering and mandates and this forced contrary to reason or intelligence our ever closer dependancy on our position within the EU.

Now we have to try to restore our harmed link's and Global trade franchises with our old commonwealth states, our former family of nation's if they will ever forgive us for turning our back on them as much as we did BUT if we do ever manage to do so then it will be good for them and good for us and also if we manage to restore some semblance of a government that cares about our own people again (which sadly is not likely as most if not all of our parliamentary MP's (member of parliament our supposedly democratic representatives) are all now internationalist's and self serving corrupt bankster's puppet's and in spite of the EU referendum result are likely to remain so) then we do have a chance to once again raise our living standard's for all British citizen's to above EU level's rather than falling behind them and that too would be good for EU exporters to the UK, however there may be and probably is a behind closed door's intent on the part of some EU leaders and member states to make the UK an example of by attacking our economy and driving us down.

Let's see what happen's but if we do go down it is not because of Brexit but a deliberate policy by these other member state's but you are correct we did not need them - they needed us and even after WW2 it was the UK as well as the US that was actually feeding much of Europe including Germany until they got there farming and infrastructure's back into full operation, indeed as a result of this the UK remained on food rationing with ration book's even long after it had ceased in mainland europe right up to the 1950's (because we were sending much of our produce - financial or otherwise to help them recover).

The EU has been broken for years.
No real democracy, falling wages, struggling public services, massive youth unemployment.

We only stayed in so long because our politicians were so bent they wouldn't let us have a say sooner.

Broken is not really the word for it, the EU was hijacked by those with there own interests and that including the formation of an ever larger and more centralized EU federation which initially had no intention of stopping it's expansion but if you look carefully you will see the hand of the European member's of the Bilderberg group whom are one leg of the three legged chair that most call the NWO and they were attempting to manipulate the EU into becoming there own little corporate paradise but thankfully the member's of the NWO are a dysfunctional family at best and so there personal power grab rubbed other's up the wrong way though they did (mostly) have the backing of there US members.

If he was a footballer and the team he captained won the Premier League and he decided to retire on top. Would you even raise an eyebrow?

Why is it any different here? He lead his underdog team to a championship, he's dropping the mic and moving on.

The hate is more like booing the best person on the other team, because they are not on your team.

Sure...but now when it's time to fix all of those problems that were attributed to the EU, the principals are scurrying away from the job like roaches. Because they know that for all their rhetoric...they can't!
And all of those missing jobs went to Asia so that rich pukes can get richer. Oh, and so that your mutual funds get a decent return. Which is all to say that there ain't no easy answer, and those who thought one was just around the Brexit corner are doomed to be disappointed.

There is no fixing it.
The people are not allowed to elect the executive and so, year after year it's been more of a mess.
It may not be wine and Roses, but we in the UK now have the ability to elect our lawmakers and they are no longer subject to a higher, foreign power.

And just you wait, we are gonna be hip deep in maple syrup now we can have it tarriffs free.

Hip deep?



You have any idea how much a quart of maple syrup costs right here in Ontario? Twenty bucks. So, at $1.33 a pound, before shipping costs, you're still just going to buy a quart as a special treat.

Well the cheapest real stuff I've found was in Lidl at 2.30 for 250ml, so approx 4.60 a pint.
Yeah, you're right. It'll still be a dribble over my yoghurt in the mornings.

Nothing is as sad as the death of one's dreams.

Please don't take offence Canadian brothers and sisters, but not being of a sweet tooth I find the benefits of tariff-free maple syrup rather low on my list of priorities regarding the "benefits" of a UK exit from the EU.

I mean, for god's sake, what about the olive oil?!!!!!

I do devote an unhealthy amount of time using lard, and dripping. I have a problem with salads though, can't get them to look the same!!
