It's going to show the EU up for what they are if we end up with a trade deal with you guys in the US in double quick time, while the EU try to extort the crap out of us for years to come.

They're Marxist economic gangsters.

The Scots don't have their own currency, all members of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland use GBP. Some do print their own notes, which differ in appearance from their English counterparts, but they are valued the same, and can be spent in any of the Kingdom countries.

Yes, and no. Also, there are banks in Northern Ireland who can issue bank notes.

These bank notes are promissory and not strictly legal tender, but are widely considered to be, but shops can refuse to take them, for example, and you may have problems exchanging them outside the UK.

The issuing banks print these notes by holding equal stocks of proper UK notes (i.e. issued by the Bank of England) as these are legal tender. For example, if the Royal Bank of Scotland issues £1M in own-printed notes they need to have £1M in conventional notes stashed in a safe somewhere.

Wiki has a bit of background what a promissory note is.

This must be a stupid or naive question, but what money system is the UK going to use after Brexit?

Stay with the Euro or go back to the Pound? Or are both in use today already?





We never entered thye Eurozone and they let us keep our Pound so it makes no difference. We actually had the very best deal of all EU members, kept our own currency, while having total control of our borders too as never enterered Shengen Agreement.

At the same time we had total free trade within the EU


Best deal out there for sure and part of quite a powerful bloc!

Now we have given all that free trade up but want the best deal possible when we already gave the best deal possible up dure to Jingloistic Union Jack frantic waving Battle of Britain / Reach for the Skies Real Ale madness that engulfed a part of our population

You really couldn't make this up

It goes much deeper than that and if you were to do a deep dive into it even as an independent journalist to expose them.

Well my advice is to not go there.

Personally I'd love to be free from London and the surrounding environs.

But can we have Devon and Cornwall - you can keep your holiday homes there but they'll come at a price - and you can have Cheshire.

I've had conflicting experiences of Wales and its people but I guess you can keep it if you want.

Don't think I'd want to fully unite with our Scottish brethren but I'd certainly be willing to enter into some sort of Union with them as long as we both maintained a certain amount of devolved power.....far more appealing than staying with London, the Home Counties and parts of the South East etc.

Thanks for the clarification.

Yes, I have Scottish notes.

Be curious to see if Pompeo can convince you guys of backing away from Huawai.

Peace


Well...that didn't take long.

House Republicans introduce resolution condemning UK's decision to allow Huawei in 5G networks

The Republican members also noted that the UK’s decision could have a negative impact on the “special relationship” between the U.S. and the U.K.

Stiff upper lip or bend over just a little bit for that "special relationship"...it's a nice "special relationship", be a shame if anything happened to it.

Peace

So, five days later, what's changed?

No sound bites, only specifics.

If nothing's changed, we've been mugged.

Clock is counting down.

11.00 pm today and The U.K. leaves The EU. I am counting down the hours.

Happy Brexit day.



As a Canadian, and looking inward from an outsider's position...I'm not sure this is a good idea!

I mean, aren't we suppose to be a global society? If so, pulling out will isolate you financially, right?

No need to be curious, we won't, what BawJaws isn't telling you is that the Huawei tech is already in place to deliver 5g, it's been getting installed for a while now, it's everywhere. Backing out now is kinda tricky...

Now that we have shed the cumbersome burden of the EU we can become a

lean, mean fighting machine......a force to be reconned with.



Well you were conned before the General Election by the Tories, I suppose it makes sense you'll be reconned by Trump, oh did you mean reckoned with? Bless...

Hahaha hahaha priceless.

The establishment (British ruling elite) wanted Brexit so they didn't have to tow the line in the new EU Tax Laws, Joe Public fell for it hook line and sinker and are patting themselves on the back.

Little England is about to have a whole new meaning...

Nothing, in fact the EU has more power over us as we no longer have the rights of a voting member and still the Brex#eers cheer, it's sad and pathetic...
