    As far as I and the majority are concerned it is immigration. Dress it up with your silly European dream if you wish. But I am British and have no wish to have my identity diluted by foreign workers(pun)...many of which are only here to abuse the social services at our expense.


    Uh, those states aren't the problem regarding that. Hell, Spain has far better GDP growth rates than Germany. The problem - and that goes for intra-EU labor going into the UK now too - lays far further east. One-third of all EU nationals in the UK are from a single country. The same country from which just as many are in France, and twice as many in Germany. The one that gets as much money from the EU as the UK still pays in.
    0.8% is good in your book? I call it pitiful and nowhere near the level required to get the Spanish economy on the right footing or put another way out of the mess its banks and construction firms have got it into..Germany has a far larger economy and so 0.6% is in effect alot more than the Spanish 0.8% and yes there is an exodus from Southern Italy and Greece and Portugal ironically not to other parts of the EU, which again is a failure!

    Everyone realizes that with the EU leaving we'll have to make cuts. And given political structures i doubt that those cuts will be made in the South.
    THe EU is leaving ...Hooray!!


    In the UK maybe. But that's about as realistic and thought-forward as the British position at the negotiation table. Which, mind you, on the EU side is not targeted towards keeping the British in - but towards settling accounts so each can go their way.
    You'd make a crap chess player....

    Scaremongering or what ? taking their ball in huh , but with internet banking cant see the problem except more guys 4000 for austerity food bank welfare

    Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan speaks during the bank's annual general meeting in Frankfurt, Germany May 18, 2017. REUTERS/Ralph OrlowskiThomson Reuters

    LONDON — Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan told employees that the German lender is preparing for a hard Brexit in which roles will "inevitably" move from London to Frankfurt.

    Cryan said in a video announcement on July 11 that the bank "will assume a reasonable worst outcome" from the UK's talks with the European Union, according to a Bloomberg News report.

    "The worst is always likely to be worse than people can imagine," Cryan said.

    Deutsche Bank operates a branch in the UK, and while London is one of the firm's major investment banking hubs, Cryan said he will move "the vast majority" of the markets balance sheet to Frankfurt. As a result, some roles will move too.

    "There’s an awful lot of detail to be ironed out and agreed, depending on what the rules and regulations turn out to be," Cryan said in the video. "We will try to minimize disruption for our clients and for our own people, but inevitably roles will need to be either moved or at least added in Frankfurt."

    "We will try to minimize disruption for our clients and for our own people, but inevitably roles will need to be either moved or at least added in Frankfurt."

    Deutsche Bank's chief regulatory officer has warned that the bank may be forced to move up to 4,000 staff from the UK to Europe as a result of Brexit.

    Sylvie Matherat said earlier this year that client demands and pressure from regulators could combine to force almost half of Deutsche's 9,000 UK staff to relocate to Europe.

    "For front office people, if you want to deal with an EU client, you need to be based in the EU. Does it mean I have to move all the front office people to Germany or not? We’re speaking of 2,000 people," Matherat said in April.

    "Then you have the local supervisors who rightly say, come on, if you have your client here, if you book your operation here, you need to have your risk management capacity here. It means another 2,000 people."

    Financial centres across the EU — including Frankfurt, Paris, Dublin, and Luxembourg — are battling to attract financial services work moving out of London as a result of Brexit as a result of expected legal changes that will make operating in the EU out of London tricky.

    Britain is expected to lose financial passporting rights, which allow banks with a base in the UK to sell products and services to customers and financial markets across the EU.

    Frankfurt is emerging as a popular destination for many international firms choosing a post-Brexit base. Three Japanese lenders, Daiwa, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group, and Nomura, have all confirmed in recent weeks that they will set up new post-Brexit bases in Frankfurt.

    LONDON — France is seeking the hardest possible Brexit to take advantage of the disruption this would cause to the City of London, a leaked memo suggests.

    The memo, published in the Mail on Sunday, was written by Jeremy Browne, the City's envoy to the EU, after a meeting with senior French officials at the country's central bank, the Banque de France at the beginning of July.

    "The meeting with the French Central Bank was the worst I have had anywhere in the EU. They are in favour of the hardest Brexit. They want disruption. They actively seek disaggregation of financial services provision," Browne wrote to the Treasury, MPs and financial firms.

    "The clear messages emanating from Paris are not just the musings of a rogue senior official in the French government or central bank. France could not be clearer about their intentions," Browne continues.

    "They see Britain and the City of London as adversaries, not partners.
    "

    Since the Brexit vote, Paris's financial hub has been the most vocal in lobbying banks and other financial services firms to move business from London to the city, with lobby group Paris Europlace frequently sending delegations to London and hosting events in the city.

    Cities across Europe are lobbying to attract relocating banks, insurers, and investment funds once Britain almost inevitably loses the right to passport financial services across the EU after Brexit.

    The passport is a system of common financial rules that allow UK based financial firms to access customers and carry out activities across Europe. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said last year that 5,500 UK companies rely on passporting rights, with a combined revenue of £9 billion.

    Without it, doing business in the EU from London will be very tricky, so plans are being put in place for establishing or extending European offices to cope with the looming rule changes.

    Paris has consistently argued, however, that it wishes to be collaborative in the Brexit process, and sees any staff movements out of London as a rebalancing of the continent's financial centres.


    Yea right

    In an interview with Business Insider in May, Arnaud de Bresson, chief executive of Paris Europlace stressed that the aim of his organisation was to work with the City of London, rather than against it, to promote Europe as a competitive financial marketplace.

    "What we see is that it [the movement of finance workers] will not be from London to one financial centre in the EU, it will be a distribution in the different centres," he said.

    The reason that Finance operates in London more than anywhere else in Europe is the historical business connections centred there from around the globe and its cheaper to operate from there than Paris or Frankfurt. London's just better at it!!
