    As certain people on here would rather insult and swear at people who have opinions other than theirs then what's the point in responding. I'll leave you to agree with each other in your echo chamber.

    It would be easy to assume that this was some sort of abrogation.

    Should we assume that a lack of response is somehow an acknowledgement that any answers would not stand up to scrutiny?

    Am i one of the 'certain people'?

    You seem to hold your argument cheap.

    One suspects you have found your own.

    Where you feel more comfortable.

    Amiright?

    The longer the process carries on the bizarre it gets. Today I received a letter from a well known hedge fund manger and Brexiteer by the name of Crispin Odey trying to convince me to invest in his funds. Like hell I would consider any personal investment or putting my employees pensions in your hands. You wanted this volatility Crispin and your funds are tanking, moreover your advocacy of Minford based economics would decimate UK manufacturing, why are you writing to someone who actually produces things ?

    Seeing as I rather suspect @Withnail and I are of similar age, I really hope you are wrong. I hope you are speaking in the capacity of a complete arsehole, rather than that of a sage with insider knowledge.

    It's done, it's not going to be undone so we all need to make the best of it and hope it works out for the best as quickly as possible.

    Moaning about it now is utterly pointless and those who do seem to wish it goes wrong are just as foolish as those that voted for it in the first place.

    That or move abroad...

    Who in the world decided things can't be undone?

    Rather than lose a million jobs we could lose 500

    Most of the those 500 have other jobs anyway

    Selfish cowards
