This may sound painstakingly obvious but here goes:
Britain has not left the EU yet.
Why then are we inundated with reports in various media outlets saying “pound has stabalised post Brexit” or “consumer confidence back to pre-referendum levels” nothing has happened yet! These brash articles might as well be in the Horoscope section.
We should hold off on crystal ball analysis and wait until negotiations begin. No one on earth knows how the hell Britain will mould the conversation to get their cake & eat it – access to the single market while maintaining controls on migration.
And Bookmakers are even predicting there is a 40% chance Britain will still be in the Union by 2020. Elections loom in both France & Holland next year so there’s a possibility the Union could even collapse under the weight of anti-EU sentiment before Britain get their chance to offically walk out the door.
I understand newspapers have to be written everyday but If I were you, I wouldn’t believe any Brexit predictions until Spring 2017 when a riper image of both Britain and Europe’s future come into fruition.
