Re: Brexit means Brexit

"From the leavers opinions, they consider Britian to be such an economic powerhouse that we should get special treatment á la the US and China, being able to keep our fingers in such pies that would be closed to less glorious nations"

There is this grand delusion going on that the UK still has the British Empire and that it has a huge economy the size of Japan's when the reality is that the UK is in GDP world ranking freefall thanks to Brexit and Leave votes and that it will end in 7th place behind both France and India, i.e. the UK is becoming a less important nation economically.

The question then becomes, "How will the UK fund this new Galileo me too system?"

The UK's already spending £110 billion on (Chinese owned) HS2 so the only payment option is yet more of those Brexit magic unicorn currency units.
