    Que sera, sera - this is the OriginalPM approach to life. This is what TSB did, lost at least £350 million and screwed up our banking for weeks. This refusal to face up to reality is not the way to run a country and we must all do whatever we can to drill home that message!

    This.

    I voted remain but now we've just got to live with it. If you fear there will be a big negative impact, then just do what you can to insulate yourself and yours.

    No doubt my missus will be starting stockpiling again over the summer.

    Aye, there's a pallet of baked beans in the front room.

    Alongside the pallet of shotgun shells.

    If you eat a pallet full of baked beans you won't need a shotgun to keep people away

    Default Homo Brexitis

    From CityAM Monday:
    Sir Charlie Bean, former deputy governor of the Bank and one of Britain’s most respected economists, says ... Brexit is “small beer” compared to the UK productivity slowdown …. which is the country’s biggest problem and even has the potential to undermine consent for British capitalism.
    Brexit is not the end of the world but finding 17 million Brexit-voting primates living inside our human society is a not something to turn a blind eye to. David Attenborough never mentioned that!

    Do you not see that you've just completely contradicted yourself within a sentence? Unbelievable Jeff!!!

    He's got you there, Scooter.

    And anyway I'm a boomer and all my friends are. Most of us did not vote for Brexit. One did but he is schizophrenic and thinks the EU are out to get him, One doesn't like the country being turned into a concrete jungle through immigration. The third - well he's never explained why he voted and now seems to regard Brexit as a strange phenomenon totally unrelated to the cross he put on the ballot paper.

    You are probably right that old people are more likely to be Homo Brexitis but it's not fair to tarnish all us boomers with the same brush.
