Spain will be a target for the ECB soon enough. They have to get their budget deficit down to 3% with an interim target of 4.5% this year. It doesn't look like they will make it. They can impose even more austerity but in the area I know they've had enough. They could raise taxes but nobody wants that if it affects them. They can tell the ECB bullies to boil their heads or just hope that they can pull through. Oh and they can't form a government, have high unemployment, are suffering a brain drain of young people and have separatists and nationalists expert at park barrol politics. Just to make things worse many of their biggest stock market listed firms have invested heavily in the UK and are worried about the falling Libra. They have decent growth so there is hope but they can't guarantee they won't be bullied like Greek and Cypriot pensioners.

They will probably answer and say that it is not down to their bad planning of population growth, but due to cuts in central funding by the Tory government. Would you let them get away with that excuse?
The power to build new schools has been taken away from councils. They can't even force the new acadamies to expand to increase student numbers.

All new schools have to be academies or free schools, which have to be approved by the Secretary of Stare for Education.

Two ways of looking at it. The final salary pension brigade in Brussels need to protect their pensions. If Britain leaves relatively effortlessly then others will want to follow. There are some big issues coming up across Europe and the centre has to maintain discipline. Or quite reasonably they realise there is strength in unity, the continent works better with a governing organisation, they want to help the weaker countries, are worried about losing the British golden goose and concerned we will pick off the individual countries with bespoke arrangements one by one. Punishing Britain will be of some benefits to your all powerful neighbour and possibly France but will work to the detriment of most others. Unfortunately British consumers may well not be in a position to carry a disproportionate share of the burden of keeping Europe's economy afloat much longer in or out of the EU. We need to switch the economy from consumer spending to housing and infrastructure investment.

So you're saying, which ever of the two ways its looked at,..... we're screwed?

So Jeremy Corbyn is in favour of free movement but not the single market. I thought the 4 principles of the free market were inseparable? Sounds like he isn't in favour of the EU membership then after all?

You may not have realised it yet but the UK has a poor hand and is playing it badly at the moment. You underestimate the appetite in the rest of the EU to make Brexit as hard as possible for the UK. Not out of spite but out of the basic interest to hold together everything that took decades to achieve.

Yes, in the short and medium terms. There is no way to extricate ourselves without real pain. If there was then the result to leave would have been a lot higher. Long term we might well be better off but IMHO the potential long term gains are more than outweighed by the short to medium term problems. The Scottish faced a sort of similar choice in the indyref.

Agreed. Britain is a golden goose right now. Large trade gap, big net budget contribution, provides employment opportunities for countries that have a surplus of labour and helps due to remittances. After Brexit the ECB will have to take responsibility and create growth and jobs within the EU because the UK consumer cannot carry on adding debt and supporting trade deficits for ever. Probably, the Junker, Merkel and the EU bullies, backed by big business in the UK and the City will force May to repeatedly backtrack. They will achieve their victory but it won't solve their problem. The ECB needs to create growth and jobs rather than relying on exporting to the UK and elsewhere. A 250bn infrastructure investment by Angie and Schauble to start with.

In the past week the UK has more or less given the date it will invoke Article 50 and at the same time become more hostile to EU workers in the UK. It may be part of some incredibly cunning plan but the EU negotiators must be sitting back smiling just waiting for March 2017. Then the UK will see who needs who more.

So there was nothing "protectionist" in Brexiters voting out?

I can imagine there are plenty of goods and services currently supplied by Britain that could easily be supplied by other member states. Who in their right mind would not lobby to achieve this? Of course this was not an issue for us when we were in. It has now become one.
