    I like how they try to pass this as a worst case, but everything in the scenario is basic stuff. Like, a true worst case is if Brexit happens within a probable world recession, like there could be. Or if a potential war broke out between Iran and the US, or if investment bank in the UK go crazy and the liquidities were to run low, like these are true worst case scenarios. Just listing basic cause and effects are à base scenario, which is what this document is.

Becoming POTUS you don't have to be wonderful or amazing, you just have to seem preferable to your competition. Clinton, Sanders, Biden, Warren, Harris... Trump owns 2020.

    At the time of the referendum I wonder how many people who voted leave did so because they believed that the UK would get a deal? If we are generous and say 50% did so that equals 8,705,371 voters (a good few which have now passed away) did so because they either didn't want a deal or believed the UK wouldn't get one. This means that we are going to be all less well off because of 13.2% of the population, does this sound right??? I don't think so!

    How can a a conservative government hell bent on austerity and making the lives of many vulnerable and worse off UK citizens miserable, spend so much on foreign aid? £14Bn could help fund the NHS, homelessness, welfare and disability cuts, public services to name but a few. Sort out the UK first and if there’s a surplus, then of course help those in other countries who are less fortunate.

Whoa and behold the shelves are all bare and not a pill to spare, I’ll teach them by making them ill!! There not going to change me from a remainer to a brexiter …. how do they dare!

  • Georg Helpenstein-Michels

    i still wonder what is to be gained for the british population by a brexit. There will be the same deals as they are now, just without any say in creating the framework of the laws that determine them. In a time where there is no real chance (nor sense) in falling back to nationalism. The britsh people were made believe they can take part in an open market with all the benefits without the drawbacks. So obviously a lot of the politicians are some sort of elitists, who think the common man is an idiot. Constructing a brexit from being unhappy with some of the european legislation and decisions is like constructing a war because someone in another country does not act like you want him to. I can not remember that as a result of free trade there has ever been a war, i definately can remember wars coming out of nationalistic stupidity, especially in europe.

      @Aaron Okeanos thank your for your elaborate opinion. But to your mind, what should the future of GB look like? Is the wish for "ruling the waves" that strong in Britain? As you can imagine my wish for grandeur in the fatherland tends against subzero, but even here, after our history, the demagogs gain ground with the old and foolish idea that the right germany only can be a teutonic, christian one. My fear is less about what was screwd up in the last 40 years the political rise of nationalism reminds me painfully what got screwd up 80 - 100 years ago that got fixed by a common market that made setteling differences by discussions the norm and not the exception.

    • Aaron Okeanos
      Aaron Okeanos 7 hours ago

      Watching the events over the last weeks I come to the conclusion the current events are either a travel back in time for 40 years and getting all the problems once more for another 40 years OR this is the big british emancipation event, getting rid of past mistakes and shortcomings in the political system and certain establishment draining UK's people now for 40 years. It is in their hands now to either move forward or repeat history. This has nothing to do with the EU, the EU was maybe the catalyst to force the issues now and it is also the anchor to hold it back from falling onto the wrong side for 3 years now. But I'm absolutely sure the next 3 months will decide the future of Britain for the 21st century. It's time for the people to put aside resignation and give someone who didn't screw up the country in the past a chance to do his or her job. And if the old 2 alternatives had their share of problem-making and are not to peoples liking maybe it's time for a new party in the center to give left and right a viable new alternative. And choose wisely, or it may end up even worse than the last 40 years. Either as a fellow member in the EU or not, the EU will stay close in any case and current resentments can be smoothed out again.

    The title of this is so misleading and clearly written by a remainer suffering from anxiety. Yellowhammer is speculating the worst possible outcome and isn't an accurate assessment. The truth is that nobody knows what the economic result of Brexit will be. Lastly Brexit isn't about money.

    • Aaron Okeanos
      Aaron Okeanos 5 hours ago

      @S Maybe in a 100 years but not anytime soon. Brexit has shown that there is a very long way to go. Members first have to solve their current internal problems especially the UK. Either in or outside of the EU, it has a lot to do to fix it's problems. It may actually be, that the leave of the UK might even accelerate this a little bit, because of all countries in the EU UK never felt really comfortable with this in the first place. So you might actually supporting the very thing you are afraid of. The same now with Brexit, even if you ignore Yellowhammer complety and it never happens chances are good that it has the opposit effect of what people wish for. If it ever comes to that degree of cooperation, in the EU, it would not be any different than Scotland, Wales, North-Ireland and England being in the UK. Every country in the EU has this structure, and it will stay like this because the EU don't want to loose cultural identity and diversity of cultures, regions and languages it would be shame to loose this rich treasure. The EU just add another common layer above that to the outside. And it will remain a cooperation of states and not A state for a long time maybe never, because it's not really needed to go that far. At the moment UK has a loss of maybe 1% sovereignty over it's laws which are regulations from the EU level. And those 1% are rules and regulations which concerns all members in the EU and allows cooperating and living with each other and are the same for all members. The other 99% are UK own's laws. And those 1% are created and voted on with UK representatives either elected by yourself or appointed via UK's government. And on top of that UK has 4 control mechanisms like veto, to prevent the worst things from happen, but so far UK accepted almost everything and never really needed this.

    I vote for Harriet, as long as she is called Harri. When some gets a dressing down, they can say they are 'well harried'. Seriously, Parliament IS under attack from the Executive, as evinced by Tory attempts to have Parliament rubber stamp their agenda (May kept submitting the same legislation over and over again which is not allowed when twice rejected), and a political felon, in the form of Boris Johnson (he had to pay fines for knowing lies told during the 2016 Referendum), as that chief Executive. Alternately, absolutely no partisan Conservatives and NOT the SMP nut job who wants to move Parliament around the UK. Raising three fingers of whisky to the excellent work of Bercow PROTECTING THE RIGHTS AND PREROGATIVES OF PARLIAMENT. And for any deranged Leavers, I wish to remind you I classified BJ as a felon and the SMP candidate as a nut job, taking care to call out failures on both sides.

    Oh to be a politician - tasty salary, tidy pension, payment for signing-in (but not actually entering parliamentary proceedings), subsidised meals, travel allowances, good office allowances, great staff (including spouse) payouts, excellent second-house/accommodation support, and hidden side benefits. Of course, to get all these, it helps if you can tell lies and be generally disingenuous and free to alter your party allegiences as well as pretending to honour your constituents but in reality pressing your own agenda. The "Hon or Right Hon" lady/gentleman is a title and nothing more. If I sound scathing about politicians, you'd be absolutely right; I wouldn't trust them to hold my baby! So who's the next Speaker going to be? I vote "None of the above!"
