Re: There 'May' come a time
Yes, some Euro clearing may remain in London, but we can already see that the main focus will switch to Frankfurt. So the one real source of prosperity that came out of the Thatcher years will be thrown away.
"How dare anyone be for democracy and freedom." You aren't for either of those. The result of the Thatcher years, the Blair years, and the Cameron/May years is a reduction of freedom (especially freedom of information) and great damage to democracy, due largely to the rather sinister influence on the media of the super-rich, who have the most to gain from populist politics, secrecy, and a tax-cutting, deregulating right-wing government. The Brexit referendum was a prime example: populist lies and fantasies, fed to the public by biased media, leading to 37% of registered voters supporting a proposal that would reduce their prosperity even more, to the benefit of the super-rich. I'm no fan of Corbyn, but it is high time for the country to get rid of the low-tax low-regulation low-spending doctrines of the last 30 years. Obviously we should stay in the EU too, but it's been used as a smoke screen for what's really going on - increasing inequality brought about as the long-term result of Thatcherism.
