Once the dust settles and the other member states see what changes Brexit brings to EU, their decision on whether to leave or stay will be made.

For the first time in two threads and 5 years, you've made an accurate point, the decision will be made and it will be an easy one.

Don't do what the moronic Brits did.

seeing the UK being stripped of jobs and tax income  is certainly going to bring a cheer to the 27

to paraphrase a line from the film Battle of Britain

" help yourself everybody, there's no sense across the channel "

Britain was just first in the queue to leave.  Once the dust settles and the other member states see what changes Brexit brings to EU, their decision on whether to leave or stay will be made.

Not the changes to Britain then? Cause there aren’t any good ones are there, so Britain will be the first - and the last - in the leave EU queue.

This no. 1 ranking didn't make any of those investors that moved to Amsterdam last week think again. Maybe these charts have little relevance to the real world. Follow the money, not the ranking.

about a 1, 000  Finance firms are eyeing post Brexit outposts in the UK  Reports Bloomberg 

It's because of the equivalence ruling.

The Amsterdam share business is small fry in the grand scheme of things.More symbolic than costly, and much went to New York too.

temporarily 

"This year, London lost its crown to Amsterdam as Europe’s top place to buy and sell stock, traders have shifted interest-rate swaps out of the U.K. and the relocation of bankers into the bloc continues."

Remember, Swindo is the thicko who thinks holiday makers having limits put on what they take back into the UK is............a bonus !

While the figures are large, the overall impact on the City is small. Only a handful of jobs at the exchanges have had to move and the overall tax benefits to Amsterdam from a low-margin business such as trading will be minimal, according to Nick Bayley, a managing director at the consultancy Duff & Phelps.

“In terms of jobs, tax revenues, other revenues, the profit and loss accounts and so on being generated in Holland rather than in the UK, it’s marginal. But it is symbolic, of course,” Bayley said.

The change can be compared to moving a computer that processes online store orders from one city to another. While the computer has moved, all of its customers and suppliers are still in the same place. Likewise, while share trading has shifted, most of the traders, brokers and asset managers are still in London.

“It’s a technological switch or regulatory switch, but it’s not some sort of seismic shift where suddenly people think London isn’t as attractive of a place to do business or London is doomed as a financial centre,” said William Wright, the founder of the New Financial thinktank.

you are too thick to even understand what you have posted

"The consensus for now seems to be that this development is mostly symbolic"

Whereas the consensus of brexiteers last autumn was that there would be no loss

Hopes for the future are therefore pinned on the idea that the City can become a home for different types of trading.

If this was commercially viable then why has it not been pursued before ?

 

The reality. as with duty free, you haven't the slightest clue about any of this so just bleat out something that might be relevant

God, you are thick

the idea of a post is to defend you position - not post up stuff that refutes it

the above is in response to the UK losing financial passporting rights to the EU

 

what next, a link to a statement telling us how much fuel Cornish fishermen are saving but not being able to sell shellfish

god you are thick

A rather good opinion piece.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/feb/23/brexit-machine-perpetual-grievance-britain-brussels

"For the true believers, a good Brexit is one that keeps the grievance alive; that makes foreigners the scapegoat for bad government; that continues to indulge the twin national myths of victimhood and heroic defiance. Measured for that purpose, Johnson’s pointless Brexit is perfect."

I have to thank my usual go to guys for highlighting it. It's a mildly depressing piece as I think a lot of it is correct.

Another part which I fear is quite true.

"It is frustrating for remainers who still crave a moment of vindication, when the fraud is proved beyond doubt and the tide of opinion turns. But for that to happen, Brexit would have to be measured in terms of trade and diplomacy. Those aren’t the leavers’ metrics. They long ago swapped economic argument for culture war bluster."
