Reuters just called it.

 

A spot of bother in the currency markets right now ...

 

from Reuters:  "Sterling suffered its biggest one-day fall of 9.4 percent against the dollar on market fears the decision will hit investment in the world's 5th largest economy, raise questions over London's role as a global financial capital, and usher in months of political limbo.'

 

Cheers,

Score one for fear and ignorance.

Hope it enjoys its one man race to autarky.

Isn't that the guy who financed the Leave campaign?

Winners: China, Russia.

Losers: the West, including Australia.

Biggest losers: the British. (...with the possible exception of Scotland, if they quickly secede and stay in the EU, which they will.)

Potential winners: Northern Ireland - but only if they put aside their religious nonsense, secede, and join forces with EU member Eire. Unlikely, but not altogether inconceivable.

 

The damage England and Wales have done to themselves is incalculable. Once the mightiest empire the world has ever known, England is now completely fucked. They will be ignored by everyone, including their oh-so-special "friends" the USA.

 

Putin will seize his opportunity within the next five years. Eastern Ukraine was a useful proof of concept; up next, re-annexation of the Baltic States. A weakened Europe will have no answer.

 

The USA will wear its heels down with a new Pivot; an emboldened China will respond swiftly, consolidating its nine-point line in the South China Sea and also extending its influence in Africa while nobody's looking.

 

There might be opportunities for Australia in all this shemozzle. But it would need a combination of vision and deft footwork far beyond yer average Aussie polly. So we're fucked too.

What do you believe the British (people , not businesses and politicians) have lost ?

This is likely to be a huge storm in a teacup given the uk was never part of the currency or Schengen Agreement and it's hard to see an enormous practical impact since new trade agreements can be hatched

Thank god they were never silly enough to abdicate control of their own currency like the Greeks were (now serfs)

Not to mention it's highly likely that the Eurocrats will largely ignore the referendum as they did to the Greeks

It's main importance is a fuck you to Brussels, and symbolism

They will lose relevance as a financial hub. They will lose the diplomatic clout that comes from being one of the major partners in a very large diplomatic/security bloc. Any manufacturing industry they still have left will quickly disappear as their favourable trading terms dry up.

 

England will be Ireland without the Guinness. A basket case.

Oh yeah. They will also lose the influx of talent and cultural richness which most other European countries will benefit from, thanks to the current wave of emigration from the Middle East.

 

That's right. You read it here.

Coxie's tip: invest in greenfield land on industrial-zoned estates in Scotland near deep water ports.
