5th largest economy in the world! Can't argue with that stat but you must remember that the UK wouldn't be the 5th largest economy in he world without being a part of the EU.
Would Britain still be the 5th largest economy in the world if it had been an external to the EU over the past 50 years. Another question for you because I find it fascinating the absolute shocking level of knowledge British people have of their own history..........would Britain be the fifth largest economy in the world today without colonisation? when Britain colonised over 100 different countries and territories around the world for their own economic gain!!
global interdependence is vital for for economic growth, ye have taken a huge step backwards in that regard with your exit result. The world has changed ye no longer "rule Britania, Britania rules the waves"!! Deluded and nostalgic! put the Great back into "Great Britain", the EU did ye a favour, it stopped ye from pillaging and exploiting other poorer developing countries of their natural resources and the foundations for economic development within those states. It curtailed your lust for wealth.
I'm gonna get a backlash from this post but I don't mind as everything I have said is th truth, your history books like to skim past it but it's a fact. An exit vote won because ye still surfer from a hangover from the times when e ruled the waves, nostalgia of the good times. Then throw in the migration issues and it was a done deal.
I genuinely can't get over this outcome, it must be the biggest single F up in modern political history, an absolute own goal of the highest order.
Brexit could be used to trigger a financial collapse by the people in power. Let's have it right there's a 1.5 quadrillion derivative market out there that's unregulated thats 10 times the global economy something is gonna give. Every central bank is quantitative easing ask yourself why it's just making the thing much worse you watch. 2008 was a warning as anything changed no it hasn't, bankers are still doing the same things that triggered the 2008 collapse. let's see what happens over the coming months.
If Boris Johnson looked downbeat yesterday, that is because he realises that he has lost.
Perhaps many Brexiters do not realise it yet, but they have actually lost, and it is all down to one man: David Cameron.
With one fell swoop yesterday at 9:15 am, Cameron effectively annulled the referendum result, and simultaneously destroyed the political careers of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and leading Brexiters who cost him so much anguish, not to mention his premiership.
Throughout the campaign, Cameron had repeatedly said that a vote for leave would lead to triggering Article 50 straight away. Whether implicitly or explicitly, the image was clear: he would be giving that notice under Article 50 the morning after a vote to leave. Whether that was scaremongering or not is a bit moot now but, in the midst of the sentimental nautical references of his speech yesterday, he quietly abandoned that position and handed the responsibility over to his successor.
And as the day wore on, the enormity of that step started to sink in: the markets, Sterling, Scotland, the Irish border, the Gibraltar border, the frontier at Calais, the need to continue compliance with all EU regulations for a free market, re-issuing passports, Brits abroad, EU citizens in Britain, the mountain of legistlation to be torn up and rewritten ... the list grew and grew.
The referendum result is not binding. It is advisory. Parliament is not bound to commit itself in that same direction.
The Conservative party election that Cameron triggered will now have one question looming over it: will you, if elected as party leader, trigger the notice under Article 50?
Who will want to have the responsibility of all those ramifications and consequences on his/her head and shoulders?
Boris Johnson knew this yesterday, when he emerged subdued from his home and was even more subdued at the press conference. He has been out-maneouvered and check-mated.
If he runs for leadership of the party, and then fails to follow through on triggering Article 50, then he is finished. If he does not run and effectively abandons the field, then he is finished. If he runs, wins and pulls the UK out of the EU, then it will all be over - Scotland will break away, there will be upheaval in Ireland, a recession ... broken trade agreements. Then he is also finished. Boris Johnson knows all of this. When he acts like the dumb blond it is just that: an act.
The Brexit leaders now have a result that they cannot use. For them, leadership of the Tory party has become a poison chalice.
When Boris Johnson said there was no need to trigger Article 50 straight away, what he really meant to say was "never". When Michael Gove went on and on about "informal negotiations" ... why? why not the formal ones straight away? ... he also meant not triggering the formal departure. They both know what a formal demarche would mean: an irreversible st
Brexit, well must be 17 million people heading for the beaches of Blackpool and Clacton this year as Europe is so bad, those who voted out will with out doubt be sucking there Blackpool rock and wearing hankies on there heads with strings vests this summer and every other summer...
