    If you like sitting in traffic jams for a couple of hours to get two and from work, and ensuring you have a credit card with enough money to pay your air fare back to the UK if you have a serious illness.

    More sunshine, more exercise and less Michelin restaurants might be a good idea mate....

    I think this pretty much surmises the anti-establishment vote and what will happen: Brexit could cut wages by 30% over next two decades, says private equity boss Guy Hands | The Independent

    “The slightly sad thing is the people who voted for Brexit aren’t the people who are going to have to make these sacrifices,” Hands said. “That’s not unusual for big, political decisions when people don’t fully analyse what the economic consequences are.”
    ...
    “Sadly, and this is always one of the strange things about business, I think it’s probably a bad thing for the majority of people and bad for the country, but I think, for my business, it’s probably going to be good,”
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Brexit means Brexit, or in other words - train crash where the only survivors will be in the 1st Class.

    Debt will command higher interest rates as more risk is ascribed to an independent UK, and immigrants from Europe will be replaced with workers from the Indian subcontinent and Africa, who may be willing to accept “substantially” lower pay, he said.

    But it's an imposition from the UK, not the other way around.
    Are you using British humour?
