    Re: Olympus Service & Brexit?

    Back to the OPs question: not much. Companies and countries will want to trade with us.

    Anyway, looks like we have a friend in Donald Trump, they won't want to upset our friend Donald!

          I can't get the image of two unnaturally blonde men heading up the Special Relationship, one of whom thinks the other's surname means "fart" while the other thinks "penis" out of my head

              Spain and Argentina are basket cases, you have just seen real democracy in action, there is already talk of other EU countries wanting a similar referendum, let the people speak and you will hear the true voice of the people, let the politicians speak and all you get is lies.

                    I'm really sorry for the loss of your mother & it sure doesn't help when others thing turn out negative in life to go with it.

                      A good number of voters will be regretting their choice and angry with the politicians who fed them lies when they informed the electorate that immigration could be controlled.. The Conservative MEP Daniel Hannon was interviewed by Evan Davis on last night's 'news night'. When questioned about controlling immigration levels and having an 'associate membership' of the EU, Hannon conceded the UK would not be able to control immigration. Davis was almost iridescent - I've not seen such a reaction from the mild mannered interviewer before. And to make matters worse, we now have the threat of the Union becomming dismantled and potentially an escalation of trouble in Nothern Ireland.

                      The genie is well and truly out of the bottle! I just wish we could push him back in!

                        Brexit is a disaster for Britain. Cameron will go down in history as the PM who scuppered the UK and led it to the beginning of terminal decline. It's 100% clear that Brexit will cause a recession and it will be long lasting for the simple reason that all this change brings uncertainty and the last thing business investment needs is uncertainty.

                        And the level of change will be enormous. It's a foregone conclusion that Scotland will demand a new independence referendum and in all likelihood win it. Then there'll be at least 5 years of uncertainty over our EU break with all manner of things to be undone after 40 years of membership. Top that with concerns over renewed violence in NI and you've got a perfect storm.

                        And what do we get for all this? - very little. Likely no real change in immigration, smaller economy so less money in government coffers (the loss of tax revenue due to a 0.6% drop in GDP will wipe out the EU levies), and worst of all a country led by Boris, Gove et al with Farage egging them on. Ask yourself who among world political leaders supports our leave decision - and you'll find a short list headed by Putin, Trump, LePen etc. That should tell you everything.

                        I can't remember a time when I've been so depressed and embarrassed to be British.

                            If it can be shown to be deceipt and lies, surely a re-run of the referendum would be morally justifiable. Someone has to try to save the nation. A trial court case, possibly?
                            I see Moody's have marked the UK's credit rating down as negative.

                              That would be morally the 'right' way but protocol & politics (& politicians) will probably make that pretty difficult for it to happen. Look at the saga that happened in Greece. It was an obviously necessary backdown but one with a greater cost than before (that is if I have that right). I fear if there is a reversal that it certainly won't come without quite some cost.

                              I would also think, any talk of reversing the outcome would have to come from the "Leave" camp, but what is the likelihood of that?
