Brexit, a tantrum or not so easy exit strategy

When Brexit results came out the pound took a slight pounding, the English drank more panic tea whilst others celebrated that they were now leaving EU however that was 2016. Flash forward to 2018, let us not forget English gained a new dancing Prime Minister out of the whole referendum. Like a relative who takes long to pack their bags and leave, the Brexit saga has continue on its story line become more exciting and sometimes very monotonous.

But of course a lot is at stake in the Brexit arrangement as many who partied in the streets in celebration have been learning in the 2 year course that is Brexit. There are EU funding issues, immigration laws issues. citizenship issues, companies and their headquarters, even sports player transfers could be impacted. So all in all it is not a tantrum move but a logical move which must be supported by the right polices and negotiations.

It does not help that some of the architects of the Brexit Arron Banks and Liz Bilney, amongst others are being investigated as reported by CNN recently it questions the logic of the Brexit as to who really wanted it and did they understand what they were getting into. It is one thing to be angry and want to leave, it is another to leave. It has been a two year saga and we are still getting reports on negotiations. Prime Minister May is on record stating that there was 955 progress of some sort however  this seems like it will take a bit more afternoon tea sessions to reach an amicable agreement.

If you are a company whose headquarters was in London do you stay or do you go? Various warning have come and gone from different companies such as Nissan, Bank of England, Jaguar Land Rover, HSBC and host of other companies. Are they mad is the question on the warnings that they are giving, unfortunately we are not time travelers we will just have to wait and see how this one plays out. One thing is for sure though, a lot of relocation and job losses or creations will happen, in which part of the land mass is perhaps the soap opera part that we will be watching.

The global world has a lot at stake here as most of the companies issuing warning are global players. However we should still enjoy the odd football game from the Premier League unless someone goes mad and pulls out of sponsorship due to a a lack of big draw names coming to the after Brexit reality, but could that happen? 52% in a normal world is not exactly an outright majority of people but could point to more a political manipulation, 75% , now that is a majority worth the salt of a tantrum.
