re: The Sun is Setting on the British Empire VIEW POST


I work in Higher Education and voted remain (and for indyref, but that's another story...). We're seeing quite a lot of low-level muddle about what, if anything, is going to happen. It's more a 'just tell us wtf is going on' situation really.

I suspect in the short term there will be a few wobbles, some companies will leave (especially multinationals who are, to put it mildly, a bit prone to that anyway) - some companies might prosper in their wake. Longer term I guess just somewhat lower growth, but possibly (the eternal optimist speaking!) it might lead to a bit more reality about the UK's strengths and weaknesses and not just blaming those pesky EU people for all the ills of the country (well, England in particular seems bothered by that - there are a contigent of the cybernat/SNP types who have a similar problem with 'westminster', the 'mainstream media' etc :-/).

All in all - it's a bit saddening, annoying, depressing when there are 'one or two' other things we could be getting on with - but there's naff all to do about it really apart from watch the circus in parliament and sigh :-/
