Best be blunt about Brexit

Comment

I think Brexit is more likely to stuff the NHS through recruitment issues, and 'fear' of what will happen for our EU colleagues, than it is likely to stuff the economy...... its not in anyones interest to have large tariffs, if you study economics you'll see that government policies and crises often have little impact on long term prosperity (I'm going to specifically exempt Zimbabwe on this one), they tend to cause nothing more than short term blips (Look at the ftse 250 on the days following brexit, look at the indices now). Business men and money talks...politicians listen ....because they are greedy little so and so's with the nose in the trough..... Merkel will be under pressure from the German car industry to keep the sales going. There will be a lot of bluster on the surface, and the european leaders will wish to portray how tough they've been with the UK, to discourage their citizens from voting for independence (Catalonia another good example) but little will change underneath. Politicians come and go..... businesses remain and can influence that come and go......Think of the millennium bug.......I do agree though with your observations about Simon Stevens.
