      If you need that explaining you are maybe in the wrong place.

        Barclays, Lloyds, RBS all off 30%. This is not a drill. FTSE down 8% Polish market down 10+%... BoE will do "whatever is needed". Cameron resigns.

                stop spilling your ridiculous economics! The only way hundreds of billions can be wiped out from the economy over night is a major disaster like earthquake or nuclear attack. $ wiped out from the market is different from wipe out from the economy.

                A drop of Apple stock can cause billions wiped out from the market, but not the economy. It could just go up again tomorrow. If the Tesla plant suddenly burnt, only then can you say billions wiped out from the economy, because it cant just magically reappear again.

                  Interesting, most who were cheerful the day Maggie died are mourners today. And vice versa.

                    Cogratulations Tankie :-) . With the fall in the pound, maybe the UK can actually start making stuff to sell again.

Tata Steel has already hinted it will pull out of the UK; 14,000 jobs at stake there alone. But this is the unimportant stuff - the immediate fall out of this mad miscalculation; the break up of the UK and the EU and the increased chances of Muscovite adventurism are far more dangerous.
                      Yes and Cameron has promised WWIII if Brexit won. Instead he's just lost his job.

                        I do know.... it has been discussed here long before but apparently you were not following the conversation. I just can't be bothered to explain it all again.

                        Nor clearly do you understand the economics. The BoE has just said that it is standing by to inject 250bn into the banks.

                              Congrats Eric!

                              One more reason to throw down a pint or two...ummm.....not that you needed any more reasons.

                              Edit: Wait, make it two. Cameron resigned.

                                Preventing war in Europe depends on two relationships; Germany and France and Germany and Muscovy. The point is to keep the Germans onside. This is now less likely - as well as the continuation of EU sanctions etc - as a result of this disaster.
