Just that, wise preppers

Hoping for some advice from organised people on what to do in times of unstability

no - that way leads to mass panic and banking collapses which is the last thing we need at the moment.

Do nothing.

Not a prepper but I do have too many tins of beans in the cupboard at the moment. I'd leave your money put. This is a reaction/readjustment of value because of the vote. Having the notes in your hand won't help what's happened.

Too late, have been to the cashpoint and taken out the maximum allowed amount (but I haven't gone to the branch to empty the account).

It looks as if DP and I will have to make even more cuts - he is likely to lose his job and mine is under constant threat (local government sad ). Do any of you have a plan / stash for a period of financial difficulty? If so I would love to take your advice.

ffs seriously. Go and put it back in. your money is guaranteed up to 80k. PLUS this is all going to calm down very shortly.

Here we go, AGAIN

Seriously. calm down and think about what is actually happening:

The vote was 52:48. That's a majority. It's not a huge mandate.
The Tories need to win a 2020 election and many of their supporters voted remain. Most of their funders (the rich ) voted remain.
What the Tories will therefore do is come up with a compromise which is broadly palatable to everyone. It will be EU lite. You probably won't even notice the difference.

The markets are reacting to uncertainty. They love it. Bit of volatility- that's how fortunes are made. Just hold tight. It'll settle. I'm going to buy the FTSE personally but that's obviously up to you.

ps Nigel Farage cannot be PM. He's just filling air time while the Tories are in their bunker working out who gets the leadership. I'd rather they put on some re-runs of Friends personally, but there you go.
