    Well - there's always England leaving the united kingdom. I'm sure he could get behind that. What would they call it? Just Exit?

    Do you have a link to the dark web? I'm not seeing anything. I Nigel going to change his mind and run? Don't see how he has much choice now. It's all going pear shaped.

    If Lib dems hold the balance of power - they will demand a second referendum as the price of passing the deal. That could cancel brexit.(unlikely atm - but it will be a hard election to pick) As I stated above, that could be potentially dangerous. No one seems to be pursuing that argument.

    Although, I'm guessing, that because of the fact that we didn't join the euro - the economic arguments of not joining where stronger. Just as well we didn't have a referendum on it. People may have voted for it just so they didn't need to convert holiday money.

    I understand the xenophobic arguments. They are tried and trusted. I was just querying the absence of facts.

    There could be a downturn if Corbyn is elected with a majority. But if you think sterling will fall if brexit is cancelled, knock yourself out, short the pound, bet the farm! Funniest thing I've read all year. The problem will be how to control the pounds meteoric rise in value. You don't actually believe the rubbish you posted do you? Surely you must be fishing? I know you're uneducated, but you can't be that financially ignorant can you?

    Although it is very difficult to say what the situation would be medium to long term if brexit was cancelled or made softer. It's quite feasible we could enter a boom bust scenario, depending on how the bank of England reacted. They would be tempted to be dovish in the light of the current world wide economic situation which could lead to them being behind the curb, and having to raise rates faster later in the cycle. Picking inflation with the exchange rate fluctuations would be a nightmare. The end result could be plunging us into a depression similar to what Ireland experienced. It's really best not to mess with these things. Artificial manipulation of the markets rarely ends well, as Britain demonstrated quite clearly with its exchange rate fluctuations in the 90s. Black Wednesday and all that. But here we are. Brexit has let the genie out of the lamp. Happy for any of the financial wizards to refute this argument. But you might struggle to Google it.

    It's true that I don't work in the field of economics and accounting, and it's quite some time since I earned my degree in economics, accounting and computer science, but I think I would still rate my skills higher than yours simmo. Now, if we were laying bricks I know you would beat me on speed and accuracy.
