    It is not so much whether I or anyone else agrees or disagrees but rather that the refutation of the statement would be a separate and off topic discussion in itself and having digressed regarding British isolationism once I did not wish to have to do so again. Thank you and I hope you understand.

    Zara seriously, I suggest you read some history on this matter. This crap helped us get into the 2nd WW ...Apologies I probably should mention German reluctance also, as it was America that caused the collapse of the German economy in 29'

    Germany would hardly be interested in NY either. I should also point out that replicating a city like London or New York in terms of finance is a massive under taking , not impossible but highly unlikely.

    I don't know, but the financial press has been saying for months that New York could benefit more than Dublin, Frankfurt or Paris in a scramble for Londons Investment Banks.

    You said and I repeat "Britain is the EU's main investment bank yep. For now. Lets see how long that lasts post brexit. Most of its going to New York from what I'm reading."
    DOH! First of all you clearly don't understand what investment banking is and secondly why would it move to New York (I'm keeled over in laughter here) ???????????
    Think carefully before you say anything here, I don't want you to embarrass yourself needlessly anymore.

    But they do see the need to negotiate. That's what the department for exiting the European Union is doing. The Spectator and the Telegraph see the need to negotiate. Im willing to bet the vast majority of leave voters do. It's just the express and the mail that advocate leaving without negotiating, and Im pretty sure they dont speak for all leave voters.

    You seem desperate for me to call you a xenophobe and neither I nor anyone else has done that. You're looking to take offence.

    It's like Question Time every week someone in the audience says 'Stop calling us Racist'. Yet no-one ever does.

    Calling the referendum squalid and disrespecting the result doe's not equate to calling you names.

    the fact that they see no need to negotiate as imbecilic and you think I'm the one looking to drag an insult out. Wow you really a piece of work!
