Depends on whether it's 8/5/2% drop in income in the short, medium, or long term!

Personally I expect a 5% drop for 3 to 5 years, rising to a 10 to 15% increase then onwards!

I think this may be the EUs opening offer.

The EU are surely aware that the transitional deal is both ways. If they fuk it up then member states will be compromised. Spanish farmers, Danish trawler-men and (yes) German carmakers will count the cost of an intransigent and belligerent EU. The UK is not powerless in this game of suits and Eurocrats.

Let's see what happens. Let's stop this perpetual call for people to resign when they have hardly started.

Agreed but the last few months have shown that Theresa May is , the party is split and donors are turning against her she should go now before the inevitable leadership challenge comes.

The only problem I see is who will replace her but in my opinion she is the worst of all options.

We may be told donors do not influence policy, but anywhere else our setup would be seen as corruption

Sometimes the relationship appears to be immediate. Before the last general election, 27 of the 59 richest hedge fund managers in Britain sponsored the Conservatives. Perhaps these donations had nothing to do with the special exemption from stamp duty on stock market transactions the chancellor granted to hedge funds, depriving the public sector of about £145m a year. But that doesn’t seem likely.

At the Conservatives’ annual Black and White Ball, you get the access you pay for: £5,000 buys you the company of a junior minister; £15,000, a cabinet minister. Politicians insist that there’s no relationship between donations and appointments to the House of Lords, but a study at Oxford University found that the probability of this being true is “approximately equivalent to entering the national lottery and winning the jackpot five times in a row”.

If spending has no impact, no one told the people running the campaigns: both sides worked furiously at raising funds, sometimes from gruesome people. The top donor was the stockbroker Peter Hargreaves, who gave £3.2m to Leave.eu. He explained his enthusiasm for leaving the EU thus: “It would be the biggest stimulus to get our butts in gear that we have ever had … We will get out there and we will be become incredibly successful because we will be insecure again. And insecurity is fantastic.”

It'd be pretty funny if we didn't now have to live with the fact morons handed power to 76 unleceted corrupt officials whose only interest is lining their own pockets than improving the country - but it's already kicked off and another 60 years at least to go.
