Has anyone's life fallen through the floor yet because of this vote?
Ok, I'm aware that anyone shifting money out of Sterling across the worlds ponds on Thursday night got buggered, but that's about it.
When the FTSE crashed on Friday I reckon I lost about £10K (pension and ISA). It bounced back up a bit, but I'm still down about £7K.
My brother put an offer in on a house a couple of weeks ago, buy he hasn't sold his own yet so he's now in a potentially difficult position.
My friend's wife was verbally abused on Friday. Apparently she's "come over here" and "stolen" someone's job.
My girlfriend's mother needs to go through the hassle and expense of applying for British Citizenship, otherwise she may get kicked out at some point in the not too distant future.
But at least we got our sovereignty back.
FWIW, I think we'll (eventually) end up in the EEA / EFTA. We'll still have free trade and free movement and things won't really be all that different. But the many years it's going to take to unravel all the current agreements and make new ones are going to be pretty rocky.
