    Yeah I've been there a few times. Definitely one for a day trip and no longer. I couldnt imagine living there. Will definitely be interesting to see if the big banks do relocate there. Imagine if frankfurt did take london's crown though. Germany would be hugely powerful.

    That lovely Mr Blankfein is stirring the brexit pot nicely I see. Hopefully more of the bankers start ratcheting up the pressure on May to cancel the whole damn thing. If the price of cancelling brexit is having his sort here, so be it. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-10-19/goldman-ceo-tweets-about-spending-a-lot-more-time-in-frankfurt
  3. Moving to London- Advice Needed!

    Yep definitely look east. In addition to places already mentioned, have a look at places that are on the overland. London Fields, Dalston and Stoke Newington are good for the yoof and it's a piece of cake getting to liverpool street (maybe consider getting a bike to save £££). A bit further out but still close enough would be forest gate, leyton and leytonstone. It'll definitely be cheaper round there, but not so lively (and a bit more rough and ready).

    Could he do that citadel festival? No idea on the capacity. Would love him to do that fancy blackheath one!

    Funny how this isnt bigger news. I guess the numbers are too huge and the concepts to abstract for people to take in. But make no mistake about it, without FDI propping us up, we are doomed. Let's just hope this emergency meeting May's had with the EU is a precursor to a big announcement... Sooner or later one of these stories about the negative impact of brexit will have an effect on the public. These macro economic stories are not going to do it though. It needs to be something people are directly affected by.

    FFS hammond, I thought he was one of the sane ones!! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-philip-hammond-eu-enemy-europe-tory-government-chancellor-negotiations-latest-a7999121.html
  9. Festival / Event entry Questionnaire

    Did not complete.

    Yeah it all makes sense. It'll be when the first huge corporation actually ups and leaves london that May will have to shit or get off the pan. I guess if the big banks actually do leave in the new year, and A50 isnt reversed in the national interest at that point, that's when we know we are fucked and can refer to my earlier doomsday email.

    I was reading that thinking god I hope it comes off the way you describe....then I got to the bit about corbyn fucking us all. He'd probably die the very next day too! FFS!

    Yep I agree. It has to be a drip drip drip of information. But time is ticking and every day that goes by we are losing something. Be it orchestras like I linked above or some company relocating or some EU citizen moving back home. It's tragic really. If it is all part of a game she's playing, then it will go right down to the 2019 wire, no doubt about it. It is going to be a very stressful 18 months for those of us who follow things closely! If she pulls it off though, tory or not, I will write to her and thank her personally for her masterful handling of the situation. Of course, if Trump starts WW3 everything we know changes forever and brexit will be irrelevant.

    She has to say that now, but it is good that all these details are slowly coming out. A50 is not the inflexible thing that we were told. If and when it is made official that we can cancel A50 with no penalty, then perhaps some leave voters minds will change about scrapping this whole sorry charade. I fucking hope so.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/oct/11/eu-youth-orchestra-to-quit-uk-for-italy-over-brexit yay! "Orchestras are particularly fearful of what Brexit might mean, given that so many have players from across Europe. What might the future be for British musicians in Europe? How easy will visas be? Will it be more expensive to transport instruments?" Hooray! fucking musicians. Get a proper job!

    It's a bleak view, but the outcomes he predicts are not unlikely in the event of a cliff edge brexit. Hyperinflation, mass unemployment, massive increases in crime. People living in london in their million pound houses will have a rude awakening when the financial sector implodes. Central London will revert to the crime-ridden shithole it used to be, and these people will be tied to it by their massive mortgage and negative equity. Surrounded by people made desperate, angry and criminal by poverty. My advice to anyone who can: sell up, get out of the cities. Move to the countryside. Learn a transferable skill. Ideally one that will allow you to leave the county. Otherwise learn a practical trade, something you can eke out a living from in the middle of nowhere. Learn how to be as self sufficient as possible. Got kids? Tell them to do the same. Forget about office jobs. It's over for them. If you are currently unhealthy I suggest you immediately try and fix it. Start exercising. Eat healthy. Get into good physical condition, because if you think our healthcare system is bad now, you aint seen nothing yet. Get strong. Sickly weaklings will be the first to suffer. Survival of the fittest will become the order of the day again. Thinking about having kids in the near future? Shelve those plans immediately. You have no job security and it would be the height of selfishness to bring a child into what our world is about to become. ..........................ok I'm exaggerating. Or am I....?
