LONDON (Reuters) - Boris Johnson, the frontrunner to be Britain's prime minister, repeated his pledge on Tuesday that he would take the United Kingdom out of the European Union by Oct. 31, saying otherwise the government would face a catastrophic loss in trust.

 

"We must come out on the 31 Oct. because, otherwise I am afraid we face a catastrophic loss in politics," Johnson said in a televised debate with the other four remaining candidates seeking to be Britain's next leader.

 

"Unless we do it, unless we get out on Oct. 31 I think we will all start to pay a really serious price."

But he is the only man to get out of the EU and keep a Corbyn Marxist government out of number 10, now you wouldn't want that now would you.

Agreed, but Farage has promised to create merry hell if a May-like compromise is agreed to, that would be the end of the Tories. Corbyn wants a second referendum suddenly. I wonder how that would be worded? I bet the stupid smelly peasants wouldn't understand what they were voting for.

I should imagine that Corbyn would be the last man in Parliament that 'wants' a second referendum. Corbyn is a man of screwed up principles.

The pound had drooped (mistype, but looks good)  in value ever since I changed money for the first time 53 years ago.

There will certainly be a droop in value immediately before Brexit. Speculators do this kind of thing. 

SO, in my opinion, the EURO is going to crash some time soon, despite QE. Europe's predicted growth rate was down (maybe still is) to 0.2% which is damn near recession. We can bungle our own recession without the aid of Germany and France, thanks.

Three years of near continuous decline in value.

 

I wonder how many expats in Thailand relying on income from the UK this is hurting?
