I'm in Copenhangan for a couple of days for work, last night in the taxi from the aiport the driver pointed out a new shiny tower block

He then went to say the that Denamrk is trying to get "Drs" from the UK into the building and are offering 20 years free rent.

I think he meant that its some sort of EU medical\pharma\research type organsation that we currenly have in the UK as being part of the EU.

We are just going to loose some many of these sorts of things as we move forward with leaving :(

Not aware of one thing we get thats worth having from leaving so far

European Medicines Agency? In Canary Wharf at the moment, and apparently employs 900 people there.

A blue passport! Imagine the look on your kids faces when they see how blue they will be?

Can't wait.

I can't see how a British Medicines Agency would have much scope to deviate from the positions of the European one, given that Big Pharma would no doubt want to sell the same products in as many markets as possible. The same applies to other regulatory agencies. But hey, loss of influence and knock-on jobs in the sector, but we've taken back control. And the NHS will get all that money. Yay.

In theory EMA move out just at the same time as our lease is up for renewal and their office is nicer and cheaper and better located for me than our current one.

In time I may have discovered one personal benefit from Brexit.

I can honestly say that I've even thought about the colour of my passport until Brexit made it a thing.

Then I thought about it for a couple of seconds and went back to not caring.

I think anyone who actually seriously does give a shite should refer to the recently discussed Matt Zarb-Cousin comment. :D

That would certainly save them in relocation costs or redundancy payments.

Or just Bre-entry.

Anyway, Carney and the BoE seem to be fairly concerned about Brexit. Estimates now investment in 2020 are 20% lower than pre-Brexit forecasts.

I disagree. I think she would have warned David Cameron of the risks involved in rushing ahead with something just to get your most febrile critics off your back.

Today's Brexit cheer:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfr ... eg-pickers

There are several factors in the Brexit fiasco that point to food insecurity and/or far more expense food. This covers the prospect of crops rotting in the fields (likely to happen this year, and certainly going to happen next year on current trends).
