So, where do we go from here?
There are lots of leavers out there telling us we are British, of course we will make a success of our exit from the EU.<br /><br />Ummm... we are part of a global economy, our world role was a country in the EU playing its part in that global economy, we've just voted that away, maybe. As an independent country what do we do?<br /><br />OK we are the world's 5th. biggest economy, apparently, but much of that is based on financial services which is seemingly much despised. You can count nothing out at the moment so given a snap general election and a left wing Corbynite government, maybe they would try to tax the rich in the na?ve way the left seem to think is the solution to everything. So the money men decamp virtually overnight.<br /><br />Manufacturing? Well we ain't got much left have we? We make cars; Japanese cars, German cars, French cars, American cars, Indian cars, Arabian cars and Morgans... To think we once had the second biggest motor industry in the world. But through poor investment, poor management and above all bloody minded unions we threw it all away. Oh, we gave some of it away as well; but for our expertise, help and investment VW, Nissan, BMW and Isuzu probably wouldn't exist. Not much to rely on there then.<br /><br />So what else is there?
