Really good banking sector summary.

Economist

Talks about number of possible job losses but that also London does have compelling strength to remain a key player. Fingers crossed.

It's not surprising Britain voted leave. The remoaners can't put together a single decent argument between them.

Well the Spanish have solved their polluted bathing waters problem.

They pump their shit onto Gibraltar's beaches and have done for at least the last 6 years

Whilst we are still in the EU:-

In a statement responding to concerns raised last week by the Environmental Safety Group, No 6 Convent Place said the source of the elevated levels of E. coli and Interstinal enterococci pollution is a combined storm water outfall in La Linea, Spain.

The Government said it echoes the ESG’s position and will continue to lobby the European Commission and Spanish Authorities in order to find a permanent solution to the ongoing problem of sewage contamination at Western Beach.

So he's hardly likely to be unbiased.

Which ones specifically?

Western Beach swimming ban amid sewage concerns – Gibraltar Chronicle

In my part of the south west locals protested against a swimming ban imposed because of EU regs relating to the levels of sewage in the water..
The local water companies have been forced by these EU regs to spend tens millions on improving outdated treatment plants.
Without these regs you could ptobably walk to wales on floating turds.
Expediture on cleaner water comes off the bottom line of the companies profits anx without EU regs it is unlikely they would have bothered.

Try that across an international frontier when the offending party refuses to cooperate leaving the only recourse through the uselessly inefficient EU bureaucracy

So tipping shit into the Bristol channel is bad whilst dumping it onto Gibraltar beaches is not?

BBC news, Mark Carney to stay for at least 4 years, a metaphorical finger aimed at the extreme brexiters in the government.

There is no hope when both sides spend all their time talking shit about the other.
It takes two sides to have an argument and yours has been going on for over 300 years.

Maybe because Spain will not honour the treaties she has signed or international law or have any respect for democracy

The problem wasn't that he didn't get what he asked for, but that because he got more than many expected him to, that they feel he should have asked for more.

Now I know never to take you seriously again.

Cameron crawled back with his tail between his legs, as usual.

He was a total embarrassment even to his own supporters.


I notice you carefully avoid the main point the GUARDIAN made in that article.


THE EU IS NOT ONLY UNDEMOCRATIC, IT IS ALSO ANTI DEMOCRATIC !
