    Indeed, as in the UK at present, where all the non UK/EU financial service providers are required to be subject to UK law.

    The 'Great Repeal Bill' is of course going to make all EU law UK law. After there will be the option of amending these laws according to the needs of the UK. Highly unlikely that there will be any amendments that lessen the rights and protection of UK citizens (other than that associated with counter terrorism), or jeopardise the UK's trading with the EU through lesser standards.

    ^Pay attention DF! I am a strictly neutral observer from Oz although currently in LOS. I have no axe to grind with either and try to look with a more balanced view. I am amazed however that as a recipient of EU largesse and therefore British Largesse you would at least try to show a little more gratitude.
    I would imagine you are using the royal "we" as I would imagine if the rest of Europe had a choice between one of the largest donor countries staying or a perennial drainer of EU funds whose most important sector of its economy centres around public administration, social work activities and a couple of other awe inspiring public funded activities, in short a perennial economic backwater, most would chose the one that contributes most to European defense and quite a deal to the EU budget, to say nothing of EU exports. The latter in the scheme of things would be much more logical. Anybody with an ounce of economic sense and rationality, faced with either or, would say au revoir Belgique. That my dear DF is called economic rationalism and should bring you up to date with reality. Unfortunately Belgium will have to take its begging bowl elsewhere shortly, so I can appreciate your anger at Brexit. Being forcibly weaned can be stressful for some.
    Keep posting by all means my dear DF your delusional predictions based purely on emotion and economic illiteracy can be quite amusing at times. I wait in breathless anticipation to further pearls of wisdom from your good self.

    What you call sabotaging we refer to it as saving yourselves from catastrophe but when we are no longer there as a voice against the dictatorship you will slowly begin to realise you should listened to our warnings. The writing is on the wall with an EU army. German generals anyone?

    We didn't want you in 1975 when you joined,

    DeGaulles veto your membership since the begining,

    and you weren't a founding member of the EC,

    and you wonder how we managed that far without you ?

    maybe you should get a clue, you have nothing good to bring, and your dismissal from the EU is the best news around. Period.

    fuck you very much

    Comparing the original 6 countries who had different aims and goals to the clusterfuk of today is pointless as there is nothing in common between the 2. What we joined in 1975 is not what we are a member of today hence we are leaving. Plenty of trees of those French boulevards I hope so the German army can still march in the shade.

    hey you probably missed the big news, Germany is our big friend now

    actually the whole purpose of the EC was to join France and Germany and Italy to avoid another pointless European war,

    and for a while, France and Germany would speak in one voice and coordinate all their political and economic agenda at the highest level. That change with that Merkel bitch. Thank God we have Macron, and he is going to do her like he did Lepen.

    But you do bring a very valid point about what it has become. Yes big mistakes have been made by integrating all those Eastern European countries, but the political agenda was always on the roadmap of the EC, you must have missed the small prints when you signed up in 1975

    Macron? His popularity is falling quicker than your pants when you see a ladyboy. Will he get his reforms through when the unions take to the streets and grind your country to a halt. People don't want to work in France hence the bankers are choosing the backwater of Frankfurt over Paris. We know Macron has a thing for ladies 20+ years his senior but surely you can't be that nave to think that there will be any outcome other than Merkel having him wrapped round her little finger.

    at highest level in 2017 best we not talk about SeekingAss prediction of parity although when he returns from his internet free zone in darkest deepest Isaan I'm sure he will make a coherent argument as to why he is yet again so wrong.

    ^ highest level against the dollar due to the latter weakening. It has gained on the euro as well but not as much and not the highest level for 2017.

    Inflation is increasing the strongest, as predicted by thegent...

    Let's see if interest rates go up and what happens to the pound if they don't. Before that, the speech PM May is going to make soon may affect the pound more.

    Well obviously if one currency strengthens another is weakening as otherwise they would stay the same rate.

    Inflation at 2.9% is nothing to be concerned about and in a healthy economy such as the UK is almost desirable.

    Interest rates need to go up and should have done long ago so the prudent savers stop getting ass raped to fund free money for the undeserving.

    Looks like the BofE is concerned about it. They are hinting at slowing it down with an interest rate hike, hence the rise in the pound against major currencies.

    I was in the UK in August and the costs, for everyday items in pounds, were higher than I was paying in Euros back in Germany.

    Enjoy your Brexit.

    It will get worse!

    When will it start to get worse? Unemployment at record lows.

    What bad news? I only see good and positive news with the UK moving forward while the EU dictatorship continues to unravel. That forced migrant quota seems to have upset a few.

    Another disaster for the whingers who cant accept the result of democracy.


    The pound is the world's best-performing major currency this month as the BoE's comments suggest it could look past sluggish wage growth to remove the monetary stimulus placed after last year's Brexit...

    Oh look, yeah, a currency that had been knocked out has now got to its knees. Let's all crow about being right.

    Now watch out for the profit taking...sending the poor sucker back to the canvas.

    Inflation at a five year high...but never mind...

    The UK always had an inflation problem, and joining the EU was given as one reason to fight inflation, and it did work

    leaving the EU will bring back the old demons of the UK,

    political scandals, unions, the breakup of the Kingdom etc...

    it's going to be fun

    The Brexit shambles is getting worse with Olly Robins resigning as department head, no doubt hacked off with Davis and his inabilty to negotiate himself out of a wet paper bag. Then we have Boris still convinced of 350m/week savings despite it being shown as complete bollox.

    What will PM May be stating in her speech in a few days time? Sorry it was all a big mistake? Brexit means Brexit by 2100? Bye bye Boris? I have a headache?

    Total chaos with clueless monkeys desperately trying to back pedal from Brexit means Brexit.

    So clearly you haven't read Boris article in the Telegraph and just jumping on the fake news headlines. Go have a read then come back.

    Saw a meme today, can't find it now, but it went like this: "(With a pic of Boris), I'm going to cancel my Netflix and negotiate individually with each film producer to get the best deal for watching their movies."

    ^^ I read it. Did you read the German papers following that article?

    Falsche Zahlen und Brexit-Phantasien.

    False numbers and Brexit Imaginations.

    Using 350m/week is a clear abuse of public statistics as stated in David Norgrove's public letter of complaint about the article.

    You need to read more than just one article to get the picture.

    BTW I loved this quote from Manager Magazin:

    Englands ewiger Wunsch nach der Extrawurst...

    England's eternal desire for the extra sausage...

    They have obviously confused Boris with thegent....

    2 posts you've made now and both convince me you didn't read his telegraph article as otherwise you'd know what was written as opposed to fake news headlines by sad remoaners. But ignoring the fact that you clearly haven't yet read the article what does it matter if it's 250 mill 350 mill or 450 mill a week that is sent to the EU, the point is the EU and not the UK is deciding how and where UK taxpayers money is spent.
