    We’re they the same "experts" that had been predicting for months that planes were going to drop out of the sky, power stations were going to shut down, banks were going to loss billions electronically, all our PC's were going to crash etc etc at midnight on Dec 31st 1999

    Where did all those "experts" go to on Jan 1st 2000? I think they all retired comfortably and are still living off the money they made with Y2K project fear.
     
  2. As you've been doing your miraculous change from leaver to remainer you've started to slip out of character. Careful you'll give yourself away. :cautious:

    Putting aside the amount that the economy has and will be further hit (and individual economic costs), there is a far more important part of Brexit that is certain...

    The life choices of not only ourselves but all generations to come will be severely curtailed by the loss of freedom of movement...

    When quitters find the practical realities of this coming home to roost, then I believe that they will realise that their childish 'foot stamping' moment 3 years ago was a huge mistake!

    But some of us indeed knew what was at stake!

    No crystal ball needed...

    A brain however is required to understand the implications!

    Mind you, you probably think that 'freedom of movement' only applies to holidays :rolleyes:

    There is no equivalence to Y2K - and it was a real risk, which was mitigated by it programmers.
    Nobody made money out of talkjng about the risks

    Joining the Euro wouldve a bad thing, I agree.

    I notice Leavers hate the fact I voted leave and changed my view.

    Its a bit disappointing you feel the need to call me a liar, but you are of course entitled to your opinion.

    Its a shame you dont wish to have a serious discussion regarding Brexit.

    Perhaps you dont actually know of any benefits worthy of discussion......
