    Yes, it seems to be almost the defining quality of stick-in-the-mud Remainers, terrified of new challenges and desperately trying to cling to their EU comfort blanket.

    How are you dealing with the changes in the make-up of the British populace since 1945?

    Labour will end up backing a second referendum

    Adonis predicts that Labour will back a second referendum, as it has embraced a meaningful Brexit transitional period. “Once Labour’s in favour it’s only a matter of time before the government has to concede … I would be very surprised if we’re not committed to a referendum on the exit terms within six months. The thing I only always learned from Tony [Blair] is ‘get the policy right and the politics will follow’. The right policy is a referendum on the exit terms, the politics will sort itself out.

So they smashed his face in. Fortunately the police arrived on the scene. 50 minutes later. There's a big police station two minutes walk away but of course it was empty and the coppers had to drive from the county headquarters twenty miles away.

    Further economic distress will not be confined to the unwashed - we'll also all feel it as things crumble around us.
    The NHS is already a 2nd rate organisation compared to many continental services.
    I've had the best private coverage for years - it's only sensible.
    But you're right, the shrinkage in the economy after Brexit will put even more pressure on it.
    I also expect the debt to GDP ratio to rise above 100%.
    Hard Brexit now!

    That was going to be the case anyway. Gordon Brown's tax credits and housing benefit - now we are a country of private renters rather than public housing renters means the Government has a structural deficit it cannot close and doesn't have the political will to even pretend to be closing...

    we could just print the cash and pay it off (the debt that is).
    Dunno why we don't really. We need some inflation anyway.

    That is what the vast majority of QE has been... It's not made much difference...

    Better the the Remainers on here, the vast majority have already f***ed off out of the UK or are just about to.

    That's been used to re-capitalise the banks. The entire economy has been devalued to fix their balance sheets.
