    Did The Brexit Vote Mean Anything?

      Vote leave was confirmed on Friday morning after a huge vote as to whether we should stay or leave the EU. Since then everything has been up in the air with the need of us to invoke the article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty. This can not be done by the European Parliament. So far nothing seems to be getting closer to us invoking article 50 leading me to think maybe they are holding of for some other way around the leave vote.

      What are your thoughts?

      I think we will leave but not in a panic.We'll do it at our own pace not theirs.

      I'm hoping that once the initial turmoil dies down there'll be a smooth exit.
      The danger is that the majority of MP's in Parliament are pro EU and might yet attempt to de-rail the process.

      Hello and welcome verax5 :)

      The falling value of the pound does give some cause for concern but it also brings some advantage.
      While the cost of imported products will cause some increased prices in the shops, the low pound does make British goods and services cheaper to export helping to secure jobs here.

      But when one one considers that we wont even be leaving the EU for at least 2 years, and the otherwise strong position of our economy, there is no justification for such a decline in the pound.
      It is my opinion that fluctuations are more due to parasitic international money brokers rigging the market to make profits rather than anything fundamental about Brexit.
