    Given that many EU countries rely on British tourism to prop up their economy I will be surprised if we are treated any differently than anyone else - mainly cost they want us to spend money.

    I was talking about spending power. Just booked my skiing holiday and it was hundreds more expensive. Someone in the party who booked fromSwitzerland found it cheap.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Is that because you were going to Switzerland and they did not need an air fare?

    But seriously - why did you not book through the same agent they did?

    Only if you're lazy. You can sign up and access 10 articles (I think) per month for free. I'm reading it the now without paying.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Not a prediction. The highlights, a report from SThree recruitment business:

    Only two of SThree’s top 20 investment banking clients are taking on new permanent jobs, according to Gary Elden, the recruiter’s chief executive.
    The company’s British business has also been hit by a slowdown in its oil and gas division as well as a dearth of public sector hiring as a result of the government’s caps on contract rates.
    The slowdown in SThree’s UK business, which accounts for a quarter of gross profits, was more than made up for by strong growth in the US and Europe.
    So basically job market in the UK turning to sh*te, but booming in the EU and US.

    Remains to be seen what effect Trump has on the US.

    Many banks were "right-sizing" their bloated London centres before Brexit was even mentioned. Top men brought in cannot increase revenue so have to hack away at costs to drive up profits/pay for fines.

    What does "the government’s caps on contract rates" have to do with Brexit?
