Default HMS Brexitania

As the ship is going down, the deranged struggle for the job of Captain of the Ship. I wonder how many have the same perspectives as outsiders looking at what is clearly "The End" ?

As an outsider, upon seeing the proposal described as a ship the first thing I did was a duckduckgo search for brexy mcbrexface, and this was the first return.

Whatever people's view of Brexit, it's not the Apocalypse. Maybe put your 'keep calm and carry on' hat on.

Not really. We have immediate family in the UK, as well as investment properties which comprise a large part of our income.

If a large part of your income is arising from investment property in the UK, I'd have thought that you'd be more concerned than most about the prospects of the UK crashing out with no deal.
The economic hit is going to be somewhat substantial.

Sorry not getting a Brexit argument, there's (more than) enough threads elsewhere if people want to do that. Someone made a comment, I answered it.

Right but I don't want to solicit random opinions on unrelated threads - I was asking you, specifically with your investment properties, what makes you confident that you can rely on them for a substantial part of your income in the likely event of a no-deal Brexit.

If you perceive being asked about your confidence here as an "argument", then I guess that's your prerogative at the end of the day.

s for me, the impending disaster is my reason for wishing to set sail in the good ship Caledonia ! To the British Empire and the Colonial Government in London I will only say "So long, it was good to know you !"

(Apologies for mixing my metaphors !)

It was a joke, hence the emoji!

Seems rather apt - given that the Caledonia relayed an ice warning that was ignored by the Titanic!

SoS never said that she was confident or relying on that income at all, perhaps have another read of her comment? She simply said it's not the apocalypse. Which it isn't.

I've read it again and I still come to the same conclusion - if you state that a large part of your income arises from investment properties, that's a fairly strong statement that you feel confident enough to make plans about the future, firm in the believe that the income is still going to be there.

Maybe that's just my reading of the comment, but I stand by it nonetheless.

She simply said it's not the apocalypse. Which it isn't.
I never suggested that it would be the apocalypse, I said that the economic impact of crashing out without a deal would be substantial, which it almost certainly will be.
