    Germany is panicky over the outcome because it's clear that London won't lose its standing and for Germany there's nothing special looming in the distance. guess they've put themselves in a foolish position and will achieve nothing by that anyway

    And it looks like they're going to get their hands on it this year or the next come the negotiations. You just wait and see me lado. London will be using the euro before you can blink to maintain passporting access.

    And there you have it. London has not moved an inch but is effectively under Germany control
