Quote from: Nick on November 21, 2016, 21:56:56 pmWhile we wait to leave the EU I saw a paragraph that summed the future up quite well.The UK could and should be a leading member of one of the three great blocs in the world, wielding influence and setting an example with its EU partners on co-operation, progress, and civilised values. If it leaves the EU it will be an increasingly diminished and marginal offshore island, sucking its thumb while the great blocs make decisions in which it takes no part but by which it is helplessly affected.

Quote from: NeilP on November 25, 2016, 01:27:30 amOBR figures put the losses due to Brexit at a median figure of around £60bn over the next 5 years, which swallows most of the £11bn p/a we send to the EU. The upper figure, perhaps unlikely but who really knows, is around £200bn. UK will be paying EU contributions PLUS Brexit costs for at least the first 2 years. Hate to say it but the Osbourne guesstimate of £4,300 per household looks in the ballpark.I wonder if sensible minds are beginning to realise that tanking the economy and making people poorer is not a good vote winner?
