we just have to remain close enough to the EU's orbit to have any hope of avoiding a recession or worse and permanently damaging everyone's economic future.


Apart from the 1%, who are unaffected by all of this stuff - you know, the hedge fund managers, offshore account holders and non-dom types; coincidentally, people like Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Nigel Farage and Jacob Rees-Mogg… Weird innit?

Apparently, our future prosperity lies further afield, in the commonwealth countries and with America :lol:


I had to smirk when Johnson in his resignation letter said Britain risked becoming a colony.

Surely that's just coincidence, it's as though you are saying that they may have a vested interest in us leaving and not so much to do with taking back control or, immigration , I cant speyk.

I think there are far greater economic risks in the near horizon than crashing out of the EU. For example, the probable financial collapse of Italy, which would make the last credit crisis look like a minor blip. It would probably destroy the Eurozone and have enormous implications for the UK's fragile financial sector too.

Glad you're not in charge of contingency planning then Dally.

Thank goodness for the Daily Express. Even Jacob Rees Smug thinks it's going to take 50 years to see any benefit but the Express have proved him wrong.

Three cheers for them and hooray for the blackshirts (Oops, that was the Mail not the Express)

So are we like the passengers on the Titanic, who not knowing the extent of the damage, or its ultimate consequences, prefer the seemingly strong and stable ship, to the risks of the lifeboats on the freezing open sea?

An alternative view, comprehensively debunked by the FT

The telling phrase in your article is:

"The advantage of using WTO terms is the UK is not bound by EU rules or committed to agree to its red tape and regulations"

Yes, that bothersome EU red tape and regulation, ensuring such annoyingly unnecessary things as food safety, consumer protection, working regulations and dispute resolution; who needs all that nonsense getting in the way?
