Default Brexit and electrical trade outlook

For those in the trades, do you expect much fallout from the Brexit vote coming up?
Is the average working person for or against it?

I would post this in off topic or controversial but, I'm not that interested in what us yanks think about the subject.

The globalists will spend all the money necessary to keep it from happening. They will make it an unattractive prospect by attaching hotbutton terms like "racism", "nationalism", and "far-right" to it.

Personally I expect short term difficulties but medium to long term success. The EU does not work as far as a political union. So many different countries with different languages and different cultures. Couple this with powerhouses like Germany and France sharing the same currency as recession hit Greece and Spain then it is doomed regardless of the UK vote of which I will be voting 'out' on Thursday.

The trade will not be effected in the slightest IMO.

They crashed the other day when the poles showed a swing to the 'out' vote. It will be very close. I predict within 2-3 percentage points.

I predict vote tampering. We are talking about the new world order here.

We're hearing this is a big fight across the pond Essex.

A lot of it sounds like big $$$ vying for position

I gotta say , as one blue collar to another, that they have all the $$'s ,media , etc , just like they do here.

The copy/paste factor is , well...rather obvious.....

More importantly the Ł has dropped off a cliff valued against the $.

Now that it is over, I bet they will re-asign Cris GW back to this forum. I'll give him a break for the first ten posts cause he'll be tired from posting non stop in favor of staying in to all the Brits. Wonder how much overtime he's stacked up.

I can't comprehend why the pound Sterling is swooning so.

The British polity has just kicked off a HUGE drag on the UK's economy.

British exports now look astoundingly attractive to the rest of the planet.

I think I'm going to buy some Stilton.

This is a boon to British Ag -- BIG TIME.

%%%%%

In the intermediate term, this event must trigger the break-up of the Euro Zone folly.

The first out of the pool -- are the winners.

Meaning that London has come out w a a a y ahead -- against the advice and counsel of the elites -- who have their collective @sses up high.

Everyone from 0bama, to Hillary to Cameron was against this vote -- a sure sign that EXIT was the correct vote.

One can only hope that TPP comes unwound, too.

It's a dagger to American sovereignty.

By this logic, I am 100% correct being the campaign manager for Donald Trump here at ET............


Now don't be a chump! Vote for Donald Trump!
