    Apart from that inconvenient point though.....we'll be just fine

    It's certainly more likely than a complex new deal.

    There'll be some pain...but world will not end.

    Trade will find a way of getting done...it always does.
    No it won't but neither should we be appreciative of not having an actual apocalypse as a result of a referendum

    But its subjective in what you say in all seriousness, for some people it really is disastrous of course depending on trade, industry they are in etc so this dismissive the world isn't going to end and there will be some pain, is a grand rather lazy statement being bandied about here and there, and for those who will feel very real life impacting pain as a result of Brexit it can be inadvertently hurtful.

    Its a difficult topic, we know its happening, but we shouldn't down play potentially huge impacts being felt already in certain industries and actual real people who are going through turmoil on their own personal situations, especially our EU citizens for example

    Just as soon as they sign off their accounts, proving they believe their own numbers.

    The numbers being thrown around are obviously nonsense. But we do owe something and we should pay it.

    As always, Pete North puts it much better than I could

    I really enjoyed this article in the New Statesman. Another insight into the UK-Germany relationship.

    http://www.newstatesman.com/politics...-should-pay-it

    I am not sure I like being called an island ape though! I wonder if such articles on UK historical thinking are found in Europe. I feel like we are always told to look at it from the view of the EU and its states. I am not convinced there is an effort to do the opposite.
