    Default Uk to lose 10,000 banking jobs

    Who says so? Some pro-Tory, anti EU hardliners?

    Or Bruegel, a Brussels think tank with close links to the EU.

    Hardly the 70,000 to 230,000 promised, is it?

    Tens of thousands have gone from Canary Wharf in the last year anyway, mostly to newly created jobs in Poland.

    The UK has bank jobs?

    "I'm calling you about the accident you had 6 months ago?"

    Ahhh those banking jobs...
    “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.”

    I would class those in the 20,000 finance jobs we will lose. Consultants.

    Anyway, if we don't have banking jobs then how do you justify the 70,000 to 230,000 you Remnants have been crowing about?

    Hundreds of thousands have gone offshore over the last 20 years.

    Exactly this. UK investment banking is a shell of what it was. Brexit has nothing to do with it.
