One of the best posts I have read in a long while. This is not the Great Britain I was brought up with. I don't recognise this intolerant, nationalistic and xenophobic GB. Didn't we defeat the Nazi's with Indians, Polish pilots, resistance armies of the French, Italians and the Greeks (not to mention the US). All the promises made about the £350m per week going to NHS was a lie, reducing immigration (I don't have issues with immigration at all) etc, more will come in the following days, broken promises before they even take over.
I find it fascinating that if someone goes to work in the middle east they are called ex-pats (how nice). If they come here they are illegal immigrants and likely criminals. Now that we have left the EU, I think Brexiters should stay in the UK and have their holidays in the freezing cold north of England or the wet and windy region of Cornwall or even Wales. Don't be hypocritics and holiday in the great places of Rome, Paris, Berlin, Monaco or any area of Europe.
Excuse the rant. It's late and I'm sickened by my countrys decision on Friday morning. We deserve everything we get. I am begging the EU use ground chillis on the strap on device, you never know we might even like it !!!
Casshy, I think your 99p target is extremely overly optimistic, On Friday Barclays traded just short of 346 million shares against an average of 42 million shares and at the lowest point hit 131p, on the open. Lloyds traded around 1.6 billion shares against an average of 185 million. Friday was a major panic, because the city was caught off guard. I suspect shares will now stabilise around there current prices, or go up from here.
And you may not like the result and the effect on your portfolio but that is democracy and that's it. To hold another vote is wrong - have to state though on the news I don't think a simple over 50 percent should carry the decision the vote was tight. If another vote is held remain would definitely win imo. Seems that Cameron trying to unite his party gambled and lost - sending what with the pound and the stocks suffering heavy falls the fear of Brexit and to what would happen did come to fruition - hindsight and proof. The uncertainty going forward it totally uncharted waters. It they could somehow implement another referendum I am sure they would. However that cannot happen or can it?

Bob6, you really should concentrate on the work in hand don't let bitterness ruin your life, if you have invested well you will reap the rewards many fold, the EU is now on a path to total collapse, look for positives keep up with your research and you will do very well, at least I hope we all do, good luck
Friday was a reaction but the opening price is a glimpse as to the future price.....ftse futures are 140 down already and reckon Barclays will hit 125 during the week once UK Plc really digest the news and Boris antics.....EC wants us OUT toute suite so this will hammer equities esp as there is turmoil in labour/Tories won't touch barc till I get my price and will keep powder dry for 99p... market won't be climbing a wall of worry and with chaos in Westminster this will mean chaos in the city...
Good post barbedwirekiss. We were stronger together and the idea that just because others need more help than we do at this time we send them packing is a sad reflection of our position as a nation. What's next - do individual towns, regions or countries split whenever one is asked to do a bit more than others when they are in a position too. We were in a bad way in the seventies when we joined the EU and now others are in a similar position we want out - shocking and incredibly disappointing insular attitude in my view.
