Anyone else thinking this all looks a bit like Iraq. The war has been won, there's no peace plan and everyone thinks it's someone else's job to draw one up.

Airbus are moving out of the UK or at least partly . Aviva `s shares have just dropped so much they are going to the market to reassure on solvency. Thats the worlds largest Insurer
Infra structure projects are on hold and the construction industry is braced for collapse
We have no government , no opposition we are heading into recession and infra structure projects are now on hold across the UK
At some point someone is going to have to start saying we just cannot do this whatever the least educated in the country think.
Stand by further further sterling falls , hang onto your hats , this roller coaster ride is not going to be fun

So gives us your summary of the last 40 years then PeNis.
The truth is UK manufacturing died, exports died, end of ship building, end of British cars, end of free tuition (lucky if you can get into a local school these days), end of fishing fleets and communities, farms struggling and being converted into pet zoo's or niche farms to survive, majority of industrial estate and factories closed, over crowding, expensive housing, not enough infrastructure, want me to go on?
I doubt anything will happen that hasn't happened before (in or out of EU), I suspect the real difference is it might have some personal effect on you this time, hence you're up in arms. I doubt you were this vocal when any of the above happened. Welcome to the real world, I hope you enjoy your taste of how the other half live.

We make more cars in this country than ever before . We soon will not make any as most of them are located here to access the EU. Those are real world jobs you have thrown in the sea.
Manufacturing output actually increased in the Thatcher period although employment fell but the movement of low tech manufacturing to China and Asia would be hard to stop. Who are you blaming? Currently we have the highest employment in this country’s history although it is now falling fast.
The fishing industry will not be allowed to rape the sea by the UK any more than they were by the International agreements that made more sense and we are ditching and farming continues to be the recipient of massive EU money .
I do not accept that our country is overcrowded but if you are implying that nasty foreigners have come ere and taken our houses , that is not why Prices are high , they are high because we are a prosperous economy. They are now stalling and will soon fall woo hoo!
I`m flattered you seem to think I from some privileged class , far from it, but if you reason for inflicting economic suicide on the country was an act of dim witted revenge you will find it is the poor who suffer most .
The country is falling apart and it is the work of fools and the opportunist charlatans who privately despise them and lied and lied and lied .
Smell the coffee , this is a nightmare and it will get much much worse.

That's right PeNis, we loads of cars, for non UK company - they are basically "just jobs", there is no car industry in the UK past using our workforce.
Jaguar vowed to press ahead in Wales and are looking forward to increased international sales, Nissan said they are committed to the UK (but prefer us in the EU) long before the vote was cast. Germany sell 20% of their cars here, I hardly think we need to worry about being abandoned.

Great and greatly depressing cover on this week's New Yorker magazine of John Cleese doing the Ministry of Silly Walks over a cliff edge. Leavers, if you haven't quite worked out by now that you have argued the UK into national suicide then there really is no hope. What a bunch of spiteful, short-sighted idiots.

Oh, you again, with your signature exclamation mark. I think a lot of people who voted Leave last Thursday have already come to regret it, although you are obviously not of that ilk. I'm not ranting by the way, just saying, more in sadness than in anger, what I see.
