    HTH


    But assuming you mean the referendum:

    Jo Cox would still be alive

    The UK would not be a figure to poke fun at

    The UK would not be the slowest growing economy in the EU
    Think you need to dump the whole Jo Cox would be alive thing - somewhat tasteless and without any proven truth in it - may as well say that had we never allowed immigration 22 kids who went to a concert in Manchester would still be alive.

    Feel free to poke fun at the Uk - will the french be doing that when we have to come kick the germans out again?

    But the UK was the slowest growing economy in Q1 2016 - before any brexit vote.

      Q1 2016 low growth was a temporarily blip. Of course it is possible that Q1 2017 low growth was a temporary blip, but retail sales point to a different story. It is abundantly clear that without Brexit the UK would be booming along with the EU. I know of at least one factory that would be being built now providing well paid jobs to Engineers and construction workers and US banks would be investing heavily in London.
      I'm alright Jack

        You can't be that thick?

        His only words as he attacked her were to repeatedly shout “Britain First!”

          That's the biggest joke. We would be painted as holding the EU back as it wants to create an EU army, obviously we would veto that.

          Then we would be paying into a fund to bail out Greece (we still probably are) which really is a way of Germany getting its cash back for it's banks that did a crappy job and over exposed themselves.

          We would still be seen as the country that holds the EU back and to get anything through we would have to partner up with other countries. And we would still be the second biggest net contributor.
