    But really it was only ever about sovereignty and the primacy of British parliamentary democracy.

    The EU has only avoided crisis because the ECB has resorted to an effective NIRP. This is a short-term papering-over of the cracks but stores up a greater crisis.

    You can all forget about having pension funds. Do you think the EU is worth it?

    One of the key differences between the US and the EU is that the EU has its debt under control.

    But that's not what Mellon predicted in 2017, when the policy was already in place (.05%) in 2014.

    All sounds very Project Fear.

    Greece is not doing well at all. Keep saying it but the way the EU handled Greece crisis is one of the major reason we should leave.

    Tourism drives export - it's not classed as an export.

    If they emulate the ECB NIRP. It's a rule on ZH, all articles must predict the end of the dollar - I think we will see more dollar strength, the least ugly in an ugly parade.

    I don't think it's possible to predict a timeline, central banks are going to absurd lengths to avoid a day of reckoning. Debt jubilee/Outlawing Cash have been floated etc.
