    Depends what side you're on. The Scotland better together referendum camp was entirely negative and fear based. It worked.

        There are plenty of UK companies who can fill the gap. And they will pay a lot more tax.

        The economic argument is unproven either way.

        The question is - do you want to be run by uncaring idiots in London or Berlin?

            But the significant majority don't. Do you remember Cameron's opening gambit trying to get FTSE100 companies to sign for remain. The word was it was going to be 60-70%. Actual figure was 33% which they still announced hoping joe public couldn't subtract 33 from 100.

            Wouldn't it be better to say Brexit would hit sasguru in the pocket and just leave it at that?

                Internal circulation of same money can only go so far, the real wealth is created when money come from ELSEWHERE via exports.

                  Dunno if it would. I'm mortgage free, and have solid skills.
                  It's far more likely to hurt the more vulnerable in the long run. I believe it will permanently harm the country.

                      I don't think any of the car companies were "sold".
