You can see sports.ru readers reaction in the comment section. It is negative in general. You will probably call them vatniks
FYI sports.ru is owned by Navalny supporter.

Hi, I missed you.

What do you mean — what kind of Brexit — personally for me and my family or in general?

Personally, everyone in the City hated Brexit, we all voted against, cause we are the financial powerhouse for the EU, but globally as well. There are more banks in the square mile than in New York and Tokyo combined. All the major currency clearance goes through London. US banks operate via us in Europe using our passporting rights. (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/pa ssporting.asp). But — the EU have been trying for years now to bring the Euro currency clearance to the Continent. We had a court battle with them (Osborn did — when he was Chancellor) and won. We still think the City will be OK, people are not moving (European brains who work here I mean). There is no expertise on the Continent, no favourable time position (markets in London are open just precisely in between Asia and New York). Americans have been showing a lot of faith in us, Wells Fargo Bank moved their headquarters from the US to here.
We will see what happens.

Yeah, I know the feeling. I feel exhausted but can't sleep cause of hay fever (the bugger returned) — can't stop sneezing, etc.

Yes, I remember you voted agains it. But it seems to me you look more positive at Brexit. So, my question is if Brexit is inevitable and you were in charge of the process, what kind of deal/treaty you'd try to sign with EU?

Isn't it more natural and effective to the UK to have a more close ties with the USA rather than EU?

Grin (25771),

P. S. What's more re currency clearing — is this: Although it is a multi trillion dollar business — the only way the profit can be made — is in bulk transactions of offsetting different currencies against each other. The idiots in Brussels - if they move the Euro clearing to the Continent — will make no profit, zilch. As it is the only currency that will be cleared there. No dollar, no yen, no yuan, no sterling. But they just want to do that in order to take it away from us. Farage is right — all they are doing is trying to cut their noses to spite their faces. The only other place where a lot of currency clearing is going on and where Euro currency clearing can still be profitable — is New York. That's it.

It's the weather here. It s ucks . It's gonna be 36 C tomorrow. Pollen index is too high as well.

I will answer your question re Brexit later, I don't really know what I want.
I have to think about it. We have no choice anyway. The folk voted — that's it. It is mainly England that voted for Bexit and Northern Ireland (not the Scots so much) and with the English — they mean it you see, it is just the way they are. Very stubborn people.

Look at the map of the vote — in blue — where the Brexiteers won.

Really? They behave like people who can't divorce nicely. Btw, Farage is one of my favorite Brititsh politicians. Well, I don't like politicians as a class, but some of them are less nasty.
Please tell me if I am wrong, but only few people were taking him seriously just a few years.

Well, the press mocked him senseless for ages. People here don't take him seriously in domestic politics, but UKIP won the elections into the EU Parliament in 2014, Cons came second. Just goes to show what people think here about the EU if they chose UKIP and Farage to represent us in the EU structures.

We do, we have a thermostat at home. You set the temperature on it and it adjusts everything. My hubby and the kids set the temperature at 18 C — that's too cold for me, we always argue about that, as for me 22 C is what I like. But they all feel hot when it is 22 C. If not for the kids — I would have stood my ground, but because that's the temperature they prefer I keep my mouth shut.

That reminds me about the situation which happend a few years ago with my former boss (he moved to another job later). He prefered 20 C, ladies in our room were feeling cold at 20 C. So, they were turning 23 C, but the boss was turning 20 C all the time. I've waited till both ladies from my department went on vacations, put on my warm suit and started to turn 17−18 C. In two weeks ladies were surpised our boss is suddenly ok with 22−23 C
