Inflation is up, prices are up, petrol 20% up thus far, Sterling down as much on both the US Dollar and the Euro.
RIP UK !!

Gawd might not help Britain but I'm sure Turkey will run to help them.

After all, Britain did so much to support Turkey in the EU (the reason so many hated the UK's stance).

So, let's see if old buddy Erdogan will help the Brits now. :P

Smile! :D :D It would seem that the EU has more to fear than the UK from the Brexit. Now be honest ..... you thought the £ would be par with the € by the end of the year ..... but it's not. I believe the UK economy will recover and the 'single market' will fall apart. :wink:

Look on the bright side ..... at least Paphitis isn't in charge of negotiations ! :lol: :lol: :lol:

RIP UK. I was on the phone this morning to make an appointment with a lawyer to start my application for Cypriot citizenship.

He's far to busy running the show in Syria/Iraq for the coalition and creating fake news .... he doesn't have the time! :roll: :lol:

I've lost count of the times I've read that. It must be a cliche by now, surely?

I actually didn't follow much of the campaigning. I didn't have to. My mind was made up regarding EU membership a long time ago.

I agree, from the headlines I saw, that the bus ad campaign appeared pretty naff. However, it seemed to me that they were trying to make a point. The point being. "Think what we could do here in the UK with the £350,000,000 we give to the EU, each and every week, in order to be a member".

The NHS is the UK's sacrosanct institution of course and always short of money (no matter how much is spent on it) So, what amounts to some Satchi and Satchi adman's view provided what was perceived to be a good visual "sound bite" to make the point in a short space of time. AFAIUI nobody was suggesting that all of the money saved from EU membership funds would be targeted at the NHS.

I would have done it differently.
