The sky hasn't fallen down, everything is still good and the FTSE 250 is pretty much back where it was before brexit vote.

As all of us smart brexiters said, a few weeks of uncertainty and then things will recover and go from strength to strength.

Ok then.

Don't be ridiculous, the sky is still falling and will until democracy meets the remainers wishes. hmm

Have you seen what's happened to the pound?

WellErrr Mon 11-Jul-16 19:52:11

YANBU but this will not end well grin

The politicians are sensibly trying to start talk things up! Don't be ridiculous we're not out of danger yet. Hnmmmm, 'smart Brexiters' right...

Good news that the PM situation is sorted, one less thing to be uncertain about.

I was going to say "this is clearly a pisstake" but the OP has been spreading her pearls of "wisdom" on this theme elsewhere.

If FTSE 250 is where it was in GBP before referendum then it's down over 10% in real terms.

You lost me at smart brexiters

ghostyslovesheep Mon 11-Jul-16 20:05:27

it's a little more complex than that -

ghostyslovesheep Mon 11-Jul-16 20:06:17

British companies are not thriving, investment is down - and more companies are moving abroad - Lush for example = not such great news!

You are right the sky is not falling. We have a new PM and we will exit the EU in an organised manner so we can be an independent country in control of our our destiny.

The future is bright.

If you make things very very cheap by crashing the pound, people tend to buy them.

Things that are valued, tend not to be very very cheap.

Ftse 250 is mainly overseas companies. Take a look at the main UK stocks.

Property auction in London today was pretty much business as usual. Slightly down, but showed a certain amount of confidence.

Believeitornot Mon 11-Jul-16 20:10:08

Er ok then.
What a bright future with £150bn pumped into the banking system by the Bank of England. hmm

WellErrr Mon 11-Jul-16 20:10:53

Lush for example = not such great news!

Isn't it?

Lush can fuck right off for me, with their Peta-esque animal rights propaganda shite.

shinynewusername Mon 11-Jul-16 20:12:35

Smart Brexiters should also remember that Brexit hasn't happened yet. The damage you have already done to the economy is just the reaction to the prospect of Brexit.

bridgetoc Mon 11-Jul-16 20:13:08

In five years time you will not find many people who will admit to being a remainer.

ghostyslovesheep Mon 11-Jul-16 20:15:33

yeah fuck off Lush with all your jobs hmm

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA thankyou, I needed that.


HopeArden Mon 11-Jul-16 20:19:30

Lush gives me a headache. Does anyone still buy their hideous smelling shite?

WellErrr Mon 11-Jul-16 20:21:24

yeah fuck off Lush with all your jobs

Lush would quite happily see every job in my sector (farming) destroyed and they actively spread incorrect propaganda to try to damage the industry so, yes. They can fuck RIGHT off.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 11-Jul-16 20:24:30

I hate Lush, disgusting smelly place.

How many jobs are they letting go, does anyone know?

LilacSpunkMonkey Mon 11-Jul-16 20:26:13

Oh, OP, given that you started a thread earlier today about how that MILF song is 'an impowerment to women' (your words, not mine), I'm not sure we can take anything you say seriously tbh.

All you Brexiters agreeing with her. Well done.
