Last time I was in the States, over a dozen years ago even, I was *so*
disappointed not to see any of the great classic gas-guzzlers on the
roads. Everyone seemed to be driving small Jap cars and it's probably
even worse today with these stupid little Prius things that douchebags
like Brian Griffin drives.

Exactly in the same way as we do now. Do you really believe French,
Dutch and Spanish farmers etc. are not going sell us their tasteless
fruit and vegetables. Do you think we will be unable to buy gas from
Russia or washing machines from Turkey or TVs from Korea when we leave
the EU? Do you think that all that food you currently see in every
supermarket from 101 different countries outside the EU is suddenly
going to rot waiting for months in a customs sheds?

Ah - right. Of course we will be able to buy things from anywhere and with
some food cheaper than the EU.

What you haven't answered is just how we pay for these imports. Which is
the $64k question.

At the moment the majority of the UK's income is from financial etc
services. Not selling Jaguars or whatever. Many such financial operations
base themselves here because of access to the EU. And are high wage
operations. With many nationalities working in them. Several very
attractive places to live in Europe would just love to have them re-locate
there.

Do you mean the same financial services the cost of which to bail them
out will be paid for by your children's children?
Do you mean the same financial services that illegally fiddled the rates
so that mortgages in the UK were more expensive?
Do you mean the same financial services that have been fined billions by
the US, UK and European regulators?
Do you mean the same financial services that are so well run that a lack
of due diligence has resulted in foreign bank/investment acquisitions
making massive losses?
Do you mean that the same financial services that caused many viable
small UK companies to go to the wall so that they could be asset stripped?
Do you mean the same financial services that constructed worthless
investments that no insider trader would touch with a barge pole?
Do you mean that same financial services that have written off billions
for mis-selling PPI?
Do you mean the same financial services where loyalty to them is
rewarded with high charges than for disloyal or new customers?

Again not as simple as in or out of the EU......

Many of these companies are more likely to go to new York or the far
East rather than migrating to the rest of Europe.

The credibility of financial services in the Euro zone may take a big
hit if a few basket case EU countries start defaulting on their loans. A
lot of Euro zone financial problems have be swept under the carpet to
resurface in a few year's time.

In a few years time, or perhaps even today, with modern technology it
will not matter where in the world you sit to run a financial service.

I think it more or less is - they'll still be getting up to that
shenanigans wherever they are.

Were it not for the fact that location is a source of inward investment
and of course jobs. While the UK financial services sector doesn't do
much in terms of productivity it directly employs about 10% of the
workforce - at least. That 10% is linked to jobs across sectors. Whether
I like the sector or not, that still has to be factored in.

Is it sensible to rely on a sector that next year could be run from an
office building in India with an additional staffing level of perhaps
less than 100 people in each country they are servicing?

Currently more and more of us don't set foot in a UK bank branch or
haven't had need to contact an actual person for years for an Internet
bank account or investment. The number of people the financial services
employ in the UK is dwindling.

Isn't that just an up-market Reliant Robin with the third wheel fitted
at the wrong end?
