It's ok. We don't have any jobs to export. The Labour government got rid of the few that we had left after Maggie.

There are jobs in companies that are run by foreign management after all the Tory run businesses went under.

Yes the successive failures of UK governments. Well done on your streak of posts that havent yet found something that's the fault of the EU.

You're forgetting the prize of possibly staying in EU. Couched in that sense the result of a Scottish Ref could be very different.

Come on now. It will come from the mouth of The Great Leader and become an undeniable truth. Who cares if the same facts when applied to another political party mean the opposite thing?

Hyperbole? Watch it happen.

Plenty of jobs have already been exported to the EU while we are members in the paid few years. We will not be worse off then when we leave.

They will be.

The University towns, and the big cities will do less well than they might have done but the regions responsible for this shambles will be the ones to really suffer.

Well yes but considering rees Mogg reckons that will take 50 years Im not planning on holding my breath.

In the mean time it seems fair that those who work that voted for it enjoy the downsides - which they will as every government study has already forecast. Of course the biggest demographic that voted for it are immune from the repercussions but wont last 50 years to see the benefits.

Those towns will lose alot of funding for research as any project involving EU funding will be going elsewhere. A brain drain can only have negative effects on the local economy. Then again, weve had enough of experts.
