    Who Loses the Most From ‘Brexit’? Try Goldman Sachs - WSJ

    Among those leading the charge is Goldman Sachs. For three years, the bank’s executives have publicly warned about the downsides of leaving the EU. The bank has donated around $700,000 to a group which is lobbying against Brexit, according to a person familiar with the matter. Its executives have signed warning letters to major British newspapers. An EU flag currently flutters above its London headquarters. Last fall the bank organized events on the sidelines of opposition Labour and governing Conservative party conferences to debate the role of the U.K. in Europe.

    During the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in January in Switzerland, Gary Cohn, president of Goldman Sachs, reiterated a well-rehearsed warning. “It is imperative for the U.K. to keep the financial-services industry in the U.K.,” he said, adding, “I don’t know what would replace that industry.”

    The advocacy by U.S. banks has antagonized those, often at smaller brokers or hedge funds, who say the U.K. financial sector would be less heavily regulated outside the EU and thrive. “Why would the Americans be interested in what is good for the U.K.?” said Howard Shore, executive chairman of Shore Capital Group PLC, an investment group. “They are interested in what is good for their bank.”

    Vote Brexit and sink the dirty spekulative US banks!

    If you are so certain of yourself, and can't see the other side of the argument, you are almost certainly wrong.

    The main reason given is that it would be too complex to get out.

    What has saving the NHS got to do with staying in the EU, its half staffed with migrants
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Most of the NHS "customers" are migrants.

    Its a fair cry, no one knows how easy or hard it would be to unpcik everything and start again, trade won't stop overnight, but it will take hell of a long time to sort out and that is where uncertainty will breed fear or panic
