    The low value of the pound helps British exporters. If imports become too expensive then it becomes much more viable to produce them locally here. We have the skills to manufacture virtually everything we may need here in any case, and most of the raw materials we may need can be sourced reasonably cheaply from Commonwealth countries. More jobs for British manufacturing workers so win-win.

      Lets see if we'll see these winners anytime "soon". Because it's just empty talk right now.

          Doesn't matter how soon it happens. As long as it happens.
          Rome wasn't built in a day. People need to get away from this whole "instant gratification" mindset.

              Investors are thinking otherwise:
              LLOY 53.84 -3.43% as of this minute.

                What's the sp got to do with the job losses.

                You really are another economically clueless muppet. There seem to be a few on your side of the argument.

                If you don't like it, leave.

                  indeed started 30+ years ago when they started clustering in service centres. Won't change until they have closed all their branches. All banks are like this.

                    more details here :Brexit Companies Tracker
                    And you seem to have missed off the new jobs such as GSK, Amazon, McDonalds etc

                    And as for Virgin. Remind me what those 3000 non existent jobs were supposedly for?

                    What a complete, absolute muppet.

                      There's more Brexiters so surely that would be a better and cheaper choice
                      Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
