Here is something from Greece.

 

Nervous Greeks worry Brexit may lead to Grexit

 

26 June 2016

 

In many respects Greece has more reason than the UK to be angry with the European Union, and to want to leave.

Its people and government are embittered by the imposition of harsh austerity measures by the EU and IMF.

Those bailout conditions have brought years of deep recession and high unemployment, but have done little to reduce Greece's huge debt burden.

And as a frontline country in the migrant crisis, Greece feels let down by Brussels and EU member states, in its struggle to cope with the arrival of more than a million refugees and migrants over the past 18 months.

The anger shows in a pan-European survey published by the Pew Research Center earlier this month, in which Greeks top the table in their response to many of the questions asked.

For example, 71% of those who took part had an unfavourable view of the EU - far higher than in the UK.

More than 90% disapproved of the way the EU was handling economic issues and the migrant crisis.

Queen Elizabeth Screaming At Stockbroker To Dump Everything

 

700.jpg

 

LONDON—Following the United Kingdom’s historic vote to exit the European Union, sources confirmed that Queen Elizabeth II spent Friday frantically screaming at her stockbroker to dump everything. “Just get rid of whatever we have—right now, goddammit!” said Her Royal Highness, who reportedly slammed her fist against a 16th-century desk while shouting at her broker over the phone. “There’s no time, so dump the whole fucking portfolio—all of it—on anybody who will take it. Just hurry the fuck up and do it!” At press time, after speaking with several financial advisors, Queen Elizabeth had gathered the rest of the Royal Family together to inform them they will have to cut back by eliminating servants and start pitching in more around Buckingham Palace.

Pound falls further in Asian trading on Monday

27 June 2016

 

The pound has fallen sharply in trading in Asia on Monday, adding to Friday's record one-day decline.

Sterling was trading at $1.3365, down almost 3% from Friday's close. Against the euro it was trading at €1.2147, down 1.4%.

On Friday the pound had its biggest one-day fall against the dollar, at one stage sinking as low as $1.3236.

George Osborne will issue a statement before the start of trading in the UK in a bid to calm the markets.

The Chancellor has not spoken publicly since the Leave campaign won Thursday's referendum.

Authorities in Asia have been taking action to stabilise financial markets.

After an emergency meeting, Japan's finance minister Taro Aso said that he has been instructed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to take steps to stabilise the currency markets if needed. "Risks and uncertainty remain in financial markets," Mr Abe said.

The rising value of the yen is a concern to the Japanese government, as it makes the nation's exports less competitive.

After plunging almost 8% on Friday, Japan's benchmark share index, the Nikkei 225, added 1.3% on Monday.

Osborne: UK in a position of strength

27 June 2016

 

George Osborne has said the UK is ready to face the future "from a position of strength" and indicated there will be no immediate emergency Budget.

He said there would still need to be an "adjustment" in the UK economy.

However, it was "perfectly sensible to wait for a new prime minister" before taking any such action.

He also said that only the UK could begin the process of leaving the EU by triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

The chancellor made the comments in a statement aimed at calming financial markets after the Brexit vote triggered market turmoil on Friday.

He had not spoken since the Leave campaign won Thursday's referendum.

"I said we had to fix the roof so we were prepared for whatever the future held and thank goodness we did," he said.

On the process of the UK's departure from the EU, he said: "Only the UK can trigger Article 50. And in my judgement, we should only do that when there is a clear view about what new arrangements we are seeking with our European neighbours.

Londoner's are signing a petition to become independent. 

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk...rendum-36620401

 

Wouldn't that make Birmingham the capital of the UK if that happened.

 

Manchester might disagree.

 

 

But Birmingham is the second city of England.

 

I would agree that Manchester would probably have more of a claim. Imagine this though, if London gained independence but Scotland didnt - could Edinburgh become the capital of UK?

Many companies are likely to impose a hiring freeze following Britain's vote to leave the European Union, according to a leading business group.

 

The Institute of Directors (IoD) surveyed 1,000 of its members and found that a quarter planned to freeze recruitment.

The results suggested that almost a third would keep hiring at the same pace, with 5% planning to cut jobs.
Almost two-thirds said the vote was negative for their business.
 
Simon Walker, director general of the Institute of Directors, told the BBC's Today programme: "Business leaders are very, very concerned. Nearly half of them expect the other member states to punish Britain."
Mr Walker said he did not think those that voted for Brexit realised they were voting "for constitutional and economic chaos", but he added half his members did think they could keep going.
"There's no point crying over spilt milk. Over time we must not lose faith in business to recover, but it was always going to be a shock with a loss of jobs and economic growth for quite a long time and it looks as though it will permeate through the whole of British business."

"It'll be over by next week, stop fearmongering". :lol:

Great Brexit betrayal: Vote Leave leaders backtrack from NHS and immigration pledges and admit there is NO plan

 

The Brexit campaign was exposed as a con today as another chief cheerleader backed away from claims leaving the EU would mean an extra £350million a week for the NHS.
 
Former Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith joined Nigel Farage in distancing himself from the key referendum vow – as Brexiteers warned voters not to expect a quick drop in immigration following the historic poll result.
 
And a Tory MP who is expected to back Boris Johnson for the party leadership even admitted Vote Leave had “no plan” in place for dealing with Brexit .
 
Brexiteers had indicated the £350million – the gross cash sent by the UK to Brussels each week before a rebate and grants – could be ploughed into the ailing NHS .

EU out vote puts UK commitment to Paris climate agreement in doubt

Saturday 25 June 2016 09.00 BST

The UK government won high praise six months ago for taking a leading role in the successful Paris climate change agreement, the first legally binding commitment on curbing carbon emissions by all 195 United Nations countries.

With the vote to leave the EU, the UK’s future participation in that landmark accord is now in doubt.

More importantly, for the rest of the world, the Leave campaign’s victory provides a fillip globally for groups opposed to climate action, and if it causes delays to the Paris accord coming into effect, it could provide an opening for aspiring right-wing leaders - including Donald Trump - to try to unpick the pact.

“There is a risk that this could kick EU ratification of the Paris agreement into the long grass,” Jonathan Grant, director of sustainability at PwC, told the Guardian.

I had high hopes that the UK would be committed to this, now it's partially gone. I hope we can continue with this even if it is in doubt.

New Prime Minister Could Be In By September

27 June 2016

 

A new prime minister and Conservative leader should be in place by 2 September, the party's 1922 Committee of senior backbench MPs has recommended.

It said nominations should open on Wednesday and close at noon on Thursday, at an emergency meeting in Westminster

The group also agreed unanimously that the contest should see MPs pick two candidates to put to the wider membership - under the same rules as 2005 when David Cameron was elected leader.

Chairman of the executive body, MP Graham Brady, told Sky News: "I think the view of the party is that both we as Conservatives and the country more generally, really want certainty, we would like some resolution, and we think it would be a good thing to conclude this process as soon as we practicably can.

"That ought to mean that we would have a new prime minister before the House of Commons returns for its September sitting."

Asked if a General Election should follow suit, Mr Brady said the Government should "get on with" and seek to negotiate as good an outcome of Brexit as possible before "the people are asked to approve or reject that in a general election".

John Llewellyn, former OECD chief economist:

"We are more worried for the UK than we were in 2008 or any other post-WWII crisis.

And between us we have been present for every one of them. The scale of this will

start to unfold in coming weeks."

So does anyone know when the Real Shit™ will actually kick in?


"The Proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains." - Karl Marx
"A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentleso temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another."  - Mao Zedong
