    Mind you, you'd have to spend more money on gated communities and protection to keep out the underclass, like bits of the US or South Africa.
    I'm coming up to 50 but now semi retired, only working part of the year. Closed my company down a few years ago and go through an umbrella now. I say bring on IR35 to the private sector - not going to impact me, might get rid of some contractors and reduce competition for when I do want to pick up a bit of work

    You'll be fine. Nobody can hold a candle to you when it comes to selling pegs and lucky heather.

    I don't do so well when I try to sell my wares around your council estate. I can barely get past the old sofas to get to your front door

    British will still buy Champagne, prosecco, French cheese, Spanish wine etc etc… even if prices go up 10/20/30%. You cant get any of this from US can you!?

    Holidays the same! Even if going on holidays to Europe will go up 10/20/30% will still be the cheapest destination for Brits, why anything relevant would change here!?
    Why would I buy French cheese when I can buy English cheese and store it in one of my old socks for a week or two?
    Australian and NZ wine are far better value options than French wine.
    How does a holiday to the continent become more expensive? Are European hotels allowed to charge 30% more to anyone with a UK passport?

    I think your short-sighted comments/opinions explain well why you support so strongly Brexit!

    For starts leaving without a deal, mean you might incur on visa fees anytime you want to travel to the EU, plus, flying to and from UK will become way more expensive (tell me if the reasons aren't obvious to you!). On top of this the obvious depreciation of the pound will make holidays expensier, here I will say you are partially right, will make it more expensive to EU as to anywhere else (maybe not to some African country with a faster currency depreciation, that will always be an option!)

    Just in case Math isn't your strong suit, since the referendum the pound dropped ~25% in value compared to the Euro, making effectively ~25% expensier for Brits (or people paid in pounds) to travel to Eurozone! No wonder Dublin feels more expensive than London lately...

    Good job I have a nice supply of Euros tucked away in my Euro account then, isn't it...
