Britexit is driving me nuts.

It seems almost impossible to watch the news or a number of other programs without the subject of Britexit coming up.

How much longer do we have to put up with the topic being discussed in either positive or negative terms much of which is still pure speculation.

Re: Britexit is driving me nuts.

The PM has stated she won't trigger Clause 50 this year and after that there is up to 2 years to reach a settlement with the EU. I guess we are going to be hearing about it throughout.

If you're so fed up with discussions about brexit, why did you start a thread about brexit?

Re: Britexit is driving me nuts.

I'm not bothered by it all really... I'm just wondering how long it'll be after the Brexit that the Brentrance will come about.

He's sharing the misery!

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Britexit is driving me nuts.

xe.com reports we're up to a $1.34 against the Pound too, highest it's been since the 24th of june when the results were announced, so, doomsayers be damned, we're back on our ladder... Smiley

Re: Britexit is driving me nuts.

Hate to say it but our new Prime Minister and her take on Brexit has this life long Socialist applauding. Some people and papers (The Guardian for one) just cannot get it into their heads that we are leaving the EU and not leaving Europe.

Brexit means Brexit as the lady said, and the sooner the better in my book.

For the foreseeable future, almost inevitably. So my vote is to not bother adding to that here. Lips_are_sealed

And whatever happens no-one will like it because there is no single simple answer to what "it" is.

Re: Britexit is driving me nuts.

Of course there's no single answer and at the end of the day we will reach a compromise that we are prepared to accept.

The single, simple answer is that we will be treated like a banana republic, only without any bananas.

Without the UK and more specifically Chatsworth House in Derbyshire there would be far fewer bananas.

Thats what the EU tried to say too. Now imagine if we'd actually gone that next day... there really would have been turmoil.

No, its better that this is all done in a slow and controlled manner in order to give people and businesses time to adjust. But more importantly so that artmo can continue with this shares and profits and flying to amercia every week Cheesy
