    Quite an ironic post given your earlier comments...

    FTSE 100 = -2.09%
    FTSE 350 = -2.89%

    Hardly economic disaster.

    I know, great, isn't it. I am posting loads of BoJo memes and the like, just to balance it out.

    In a really perverse 360, the bankers have just been given a massive hand. It seems that a great deal of the populace, particularly in areas that voted to Leave, is still very much anti-banker, but...

    In a political move a couple of years ago the EU implemented a bankers' bonus cap to appease the clamouring masses. Fair enough, maybe. However, as most people warned at the time, this resulted in base salaries rising for the banking community to compensate for the restricted bonus levels. So finance salaries in London have become obscene.

    Now that we're leaving the EU, the bonus cap will likely fall away, yet the average base salary is still massive - several years ago we had relatively large salaries with uncapped bonuses, but now we've got them on massive ****ing salaries and potentially no bonus cap. So there's a bizarre situation whereby in order to restrict the evil bankers, this turn of events may suit them nicely. Although, their bonuses could very well be negatively impacted by a UK/European economy which stagnates or struggles over the coming years.

    Reform the CAP you mean? I honestly believe that was impossible while we were in the EU. Tony Blair tried it - gave away 20% of our rebate in return for CAP reform that never happened. Who knows, maybe today's shock to the Euro-establishment might be enough to persuade them that Europe needs reform in this area but I doubt it - 'Ollande has an election to win next year.

    It cannot be denied IMO that the Leave side was highly motivated by racist people.

    Any particular reason you're not quoting the FTSE 250? You know, the one that more closely represents the British economy?

    Pretty much no significant action or reaction to Brexit at all (yet).

    Bit of a damp squib, really.

    Don't forget that they no longer have to worry about all the EU financial power grabbing outlined in the 5 presidents report, and that the financial transaction tax isn't going to happen anymore.
