    London will probably go back to where it was in the 70s, with some luck it won't be 1670.
    Of course, all this assumes that the EU stays together, despite the number of countries in the EU on the financial brink or disenchanted with it.
    Portugal, France, Spain, Cyprus, Italy, Greece, Poland all in danger of collapse or calling it a day.

      Only in your fevered imagination.
      Of those countries you mention, only Greece has a lower rate of growth than the UK post 2016
      Hard Brexit now!

        If you want to borrow it to assess the situation (it will probably be ready from next year) let me know. Seriously.

            Yeah, and if they collapse OUTSIDE OF EU, then who'll bail them out?

                What makes you think he's going to knock?

                  It’s not a bailout - it’s take over

                      They wouldn't have to be bailed out if they weren't in the Euro - they could devalue their own currencies, as they would have done countless times previously. Any EU countries who aren't in the Euro are left to rot or fend for themselves, it is the Euro which is the problem in this scenario.
