Grow up MR2, there’s no need for that sort of foul mouthed stuff.
 
Anyway, your childish logic seems to be that because the NI weathermen got the weather forecast wrong in AN AREA of the province, there’s no point listening to anyone’s opinion about the economic repercussions of exiting the EU.  (Except, bizarrely, yours!)  And there’s not much point debating with anyone that uses that sort of logic.

It's not about forecasts over the next 2 days. It's is about what is happening at the level of the system.
The UK cannot afford to pay for what it consumes and now it wants to leave its main export market. Many of the problems the country has have been building up over 20 years.

You cant throw comments at me for being childish when you post the same stuff?

My point on brexit is that while it will have a huge bearing on us financially, it wont be to the extent that seafoid wants... or to the extent of the 2006/7 crash..

From a sales point of view i havent seen people holding on to their money, hopefully that stays like that, otherwise i'll be back teaching!!

Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

It's going to be a hard Brexit, MR ...


Martin Wolf :

   "the long-run costs will come from having an economy that is less open to trade and skilled immigration. That is a choice still to be made. But it is, alas, likely to be the choice that is made.  Investors and other decision makers should therefore not be in much doubt. The direction of travel is sadly clear. To many, that direction remains highly unwelcome. It is not welcome to me. But it is clearly the reality."

Not sure what you do for a living, but you are a bit of a self-appointed expert on the subject yourself.

Referring to Thailand and Malaysia as examples of places where a lot of dairy is exported from Northern Ireland, he said the current export tariff is around 15%.“If we had to move to a WTO tariff that would double, that would kill that business,” he said. “What we need is a period of continued access to the EU free trade agreements for a period, but then we need the UK government to come in and start to negotiate and put in place free trade agreements that are specific to the UK to allow this business to continue.”Dr Johnston also warned that the industry is very dependent on free movement of milk, dairy products and people across the land border that has developed over the years through arrangements between the two jurisdictions.He said if that free movement was stopped, there would be a situation in which dairy farmers could be forced out of business. Barclay Bell, president of the Ulster Farmers Union, told the committee that the border “is a big, big issue when you consider the amount of cross-border trade”.“Anything that would complicate or hinder that trade certainly would be a big big challenge to the industry in Northern Ireland,” he warned.The agriculture and food processing sectors in Northern Ireland are a significant element of the local economy, collectively accounting for around 70,000 local jobs – based on 47,979 total farmers and workers and 23,557 food and drink processing workers.

Brexit could really shift the politics in NI. The Eurosceptics want to be outside the Single Market. That doesnt suit NI Protestants cos NI doesnt have England's immigration issue but also cos NI benefits from Europe.
