    Meanwhile, Theresa May has had a nice windfall for speaking about Brexit since she quit as PM (I thought she was sacked?)

    "Middle East" went "permanently de-stabilized" around the time Sumer had their little water problem. The only thing that changes is the intensity of the sound and light shows.

    Anyhoo..... why should it be any more stable than the REST of a fractious world?

    It's going to be a very ''hard'' Brexit, while of course being dressed up to look like the UK has been more than reasonable.

    And as a result we are going to get our arses kicked all round the yard and back again, ………………… in the UK the first quarter of 2021 is going to be very grim and hard going.

    Hang on. Brexit just took the most belligerant ass-kicker OUT of the EU.

    Ourselves.

    Whom is it within the EU as is expected to have the financial wherewithal and the time to spare from their OWN troubles to DO any "ass kicking", now?

    Messing-up the UK will have become an expensive luxury, an "outside expense". No longer a built-in right and privilege as it was when the UK was footing much of the bill for its own economic proctological circuses.

    To be honest, i'm not sure which way it'll go, because i haven't been up-to-date on doing much reading.
    A big chunk of me still can't believe it will be "hard" because the establishment were so keen to stay - so to do a U turn when they're all pre-programmed into the one direction will absolutely amaze me.
    Here's a bit about the UK Brexit negotiator that i linked (who worked under Ollie Robbins) Boris Johnson’s Brexit man – POLITICO

    Long term - currency forecast (GBP against Euro) puts sterling rising out till 2024 when it's then back to current levels Pound To Euro FORECAST 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 - Long Forecast
    Although it seems a crystal ball, but they've been reasonably accurate in the past and we know that it's all manipulated so...?

    What i do know is Germany is suffering right now. I'm currently negotiating a used machine from East Germany where the owner is shutting one of his two factories because it's all dried up

    In the couple of years i've been gone, i have noticed how cheap (the UK) is getting compared to Spain (well the part that i'm in anyway).
    Some things still remain cheap, but petrol/diesel/electric/gas/white goods/car parts over here are now the same or more cost than the UK.
    Although there's nowhere near the competition here (such as ebay etc) compared to the UK where everyone is fighting to the death on prices...

    That's all the so called ''Big Picture '' shit.

    It's the minutiae of daily life as it affects the little guy / ordinary Joe / man in the street is where the f'k ups are gonna be, and some of them will literally be matters of life and death.

    On the other hand, if it turns out the UK leaving wasnt part of 'the plan', we might be getting some special 'make an example of em' attention from the United States of Europe.

    Fully agree with this. I've said before about the NHS in my parents "affluent South" area where it's 7+ weeks for a doctors appointment now.
    And my wifey losing 45k that was entitled to her for her pension.
    I'm sure this will keep rolling on - gradually squeezing the man who has a fiver in his pocket - until he has 4, 3, then 2...
    For a few years now, (to me) it's all been about wealth distribution. That's why interest rates are at 0 for the man with a bit of savings - chip chip chipping away, devaluing everything we have

    Edit: FFS, the gubmint are even preparing kids now for their upcoming financial raping...

    Well, if i think you're saying what i think you're saying, then according to the Independent, it doesn't look good...

    To quote:-
    The difference is, few actually actively seek to move to Scandinavia, for obvious reasons: the weather is appalling, the taxes are the highest in the world, the cost of living is similarly ridiculous, the languages are impenetrable, the food is (still) awful for the most part and, increasingly, these countries are making it very clear they would prefer foreigners to stay away.

    So then there was a vote.

    And just over HALF of the UK population turned out to be "right wing facists"?

    Or simply ordinary folks - fed-the f**k-UP with being abused by the continentals, with worse, not better coming down the hose-pipe?

    Blighty don't NEED two-plus dozen OTHER countries trying to stitch us up.

    Already legendary-good at doing THAT job ourselves, thanks.

    I like visiting industrial ruins and obsolete tech like your canal system so it's probably fine for me. It would be nice to be able to speak the local language, though.
