    Making alliances and trade agreements is looking outwards. Destroying them, as Brexit is doing, is inward.

    Not if by making an agreement with one you are then restricted with making agreements with others.

    A ferocious debate has erupted in Germany over the handling of mass sexual assaults and muggings carried out by groups of young males during New Year’s Eve celebrations in Cologne, amid accusations of a police and media cover-up over fears of whipping up anti-foreigner sentiment in the wake of the migrant crisis.

    About 100 complaints have now been made to police, two-thirds of which are linked to sexual assault, including two rapes. According to police and witnesses, the perpetrators were of north African and Arab appearance, although neither the identity nor origin of any of them has so far been established.

    Mostly for comedic value, but my mind is most certainly not of the "closed clam" variety of the average SJW poster.

    So presumably you take Breitbart and their ilk seriously then Or do you just look at the pictures in the Daily Mail?
    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?

    Jus' saying that in the area I live it feels like the economy is firing on all cylinders. From talking with friends and family throughout the UK the story is much the same. Maybe you just live in a deprived area?

    It certainly does not feel like we are on a precipice about to drop off a BREXIT-induced cliff onto the sharp, jaggedy rocks of depression.

    So maybe, just maybe, this whole BREXIT malarky won't have much economic effect at all.

    Maybe politicians and politics everywhere don't actually have that great effect on peoples lives and maybe its individual companies and consumers across the world who each make individual decisions based on their own best interests that drive things forward and upward.

    Ask me again in 12 months time. We should be at "Peak Uncertainty" by then.

    I don't take anyone seriously who's avatar says "It's not racist to deport the TORIES" does that help?

    Or an ever increasing ageing population with fewer employable people messing up the stats?
