Good words sir! off to the Chianti again! One little thing that makes Italian men chuckle - "I forget the village, I forget the girl, but the wine was Montefalco". In spite of my name I am partial to an odd glass of Jamesons ( no I for the Irish version)
I see Bruce has got himself in trouble again - nothing a small glass of Chianti won't cure.
On a serious note however, Wee Enda's moment may have come, to have inserted the prospect of a united Ireland into the debate and formalisation of "The Brexit" terms into the EU strategy could turn out to be a good play. By keeping his eye on the ball and being able now to back up his words in Euro's he has moved, I'm told, to underwrite the North in the event of a "Hard Brexit" - which I understand to mean disappointment for the UK government in their negotiations with the EU due to their weak economic position.
In that event the North, which has an economy almost entirely dependent (85%) on the British taxpayer, would be supported by the Republic from going bows under. Naturally there would be an obligation needing to be recognised which could very well result in the Unionists throwing their lot in with the Republic. Not an outcome that I would feel able to support - but if it was combined with a Scottish referendum and Unionists joined with their natural allies the Scots in maintaining their relations with Europe, over the longer term it could be beneficial for all party's.
Another straw in the wind blew our way this weekend - my nephew who works for one of the high profile outfits in the city - bought himself a house last year before the vote. He is now having to contemplate a move to Frankfurt because Ireland cannot offer enough accommodation "in Dublin" for all those who would have to move.
And so it goes on - the vote takes place tomorrow in the North with results announced at the weekend - from the little that I have seen of Arlene Foster any change up there will be good I hope.
Surely I am not going to cause breakup of UK all by myself! Scotland has about the same pop as Yorkshire. 80% of its trade is with England. Sturgeon already has higher tax rates a failing education system and is anti nuclear - Woukd she really like to,lose Trident to,Portsmouth or Standard Life? Look at LLoyds Bank BB for anti Sturgeon sentiment! When I was I. BKIR I had a nice bagger not that terribly long ago. Am looking at the chart. dreadful at the moment but may suddenly change. Don't worry about BREXIT the whole pack of cards looks doomed to me unfortunately living in Italy. By the way I did not vote as not in UK at the time. The Tories presently fairly grim look at Hunt and lack of compassion on refugees. UKIP bonkers Labour completely mad and Libs worse.
Does not matter what we are thinking Brexit done deal Trump done deal most Shares have this priced in Not so sure B O I no divs are costing us how ever small puts value on share Also why can we not have r/s Sorry again To bring another name on blog R B S since the done s/p it might be disaster but Share Price shows this Price will be still manipulated but at more manageable level G L A

Yet to announce Where the bank will grow its business has not stated it will be uk could be an acquisition within the EU all he has stated is the bank set to update its IT sector to bolster its acquisition capability.
Bruce, you are doing a very good impression of a nethanderthal! Please, educate yourself about what the difference is between hard and soft brexit. Explanations of hard/soft brexit are all over the web! It is about time you started to try to understand whst you actually voted for by voting to leave! 'Clueless' us the word that springs to mind when I think about leave voters. It is quite possible you will cause the breakup of the UK! Nicola Sturgeon is just waiting for article 50 to be triggered! But last week I nearly fell off my chair laughing when I heard abour Enda Kenny flanked by Jean Claude Junker announce that united Ireland provisions to be included in the Brexit deal! That complete nitwit Arlene Foster has scored the ultimate own goal for Unionism by backing Brexit! Not alone is a united ireland clause in the good friday agreement, it is now also going to be enshrined in the UK/European agreement! Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!!! Regardless, when article 50 gets triggered, pound will slump and fkir will take a hit. Maybe we will also have to sell all the UK based branches as was mentioned today already on here. Bruce one word in your post sums it up for the UK now, "hopefully"...
