This American was talking to the American public, not the British public. The outcome has global implications but according to the Brexit camp it is none of their business.

"The Fed may need to defer a rate hike until after its June meeting, Kaplan suggested at an event at Boston College, because Britain's vote on whether to leave the European Union, taking place a week after the Fed meets, has the potential to spark a currency selloff and other unanticipated consequences."

Poster Neversure was talking to us, not to the American public!

I agree however there is a potential global impact as a result of Brexit which makes his view that we should leave even more peculiar.


Where do you get that from? They plan to defer a rate rise as a contingency plan, not that they support brexit. Nearly all the Fed governors as well as Obama have voiced in favour of remain, not something the Brexiteers want to hear.
Invariably a rise in US interest rates does not bode well for the pound, combined with a brexit vote the effect would be very significant and potential turmoil in the markets.

Why do we want to hear Obama or Fed Governors bumping their lips? Whether Exit or Remain is ain't got nowt to do with them

Exactly the point. The implications are global so it has everything to do with them.
This is one of the fundamental problems, the leave campaign cannot see beyond the UK borders.



That is one of the problems Sandy "we don't have any borders"

Sorry Sandy I can agree about implications but it still has nowt to do with them....the only reason they want us in the EU is so they can use us, maybe if they stopped meddling in other countries business then the world might not have been in the mess it is in now

The American people have an opinion we are like brothers, I doubt they know how much the British are being stiched up,

The politicans and bankers who are mouthing off for remain have vested interests, so should be ignored

Thats true for the politicians, but the American people don't see us in the same light, they don't have an agenda.

there is hope at last! clap2.gif I mean there would have to be something seriously wrong with anyone with an ounce of common sense ( and provided they don't have their own agenda )who still thinks it's better to stay in after that listening to all the facts in Brexit the Movie

General De Gaulle of France was absolutely right to try and block the entry of the UK to the EU. One must remember that the UK had tried to establish a different "common market" with countries that are now part of the EU. Only after theyt had realized that this was an utter failure, did there successfully try to join the EU. Since then, all the EU had has been a succession of requests for exceptions. It is high time for the UK people to decide if they wish to be part of Europe, with all the benefits involved, or out of it . Let us see then where the London Financial centre is, where the British Exports go to, where the so called "British Democracy" (where a PM with a minority popular vote can rule the country) i) and where Britain will stand on security.

The youtube film is an anti EU propaganda clip, full of lies, half lies and misconstrued facts. For example: The European Parliament has the right, indeed the duty, to agree or disagree laws SUGGESTED by the commission. Yes, the EU can be made more democratic, if some countries, like the UK, would stop blocking progress. Europe, including the UK can only have a bright future in our globalized world as a US of Europe, with each country keeping its culture and traditions. EU will exist and progress without the UK, although it will be a pity if the UK leaves. I very much doubt that the UK will prosper without the EU. Remember one fact: The EU, or most states of the EU will not, repeat NOT, be prepared to enter agreements with the UK which will hold benefits only for the UK. I really hope that the British people will have enough sense to realize the actual real facts.

LOL giggle.gif

" Yes, the EU can be made more democratic " well I wouldn't be holding my breath for that onelaugh.png

the only ones with a bright future will be the politicians and bureaucrats that will go on collecting their obscene salaries year after year as the rest of the real world economy sinks further and further into depression

I very much doubt the UK will prosper within the EU because I doubt whether the EU itself will prosper.look at Greece.

What's it got to offer for God's sake?

The EU has been prosperous for the last 10 years , or so compared to the down turn in the global economy. Without the EU, a number of countries, mostly ex Eastern Block ones, would not have a prospering economy like today. As far as the UK goes, where do the UK exports mostly go to? As far as the London Financial Centre is concerned, just imagine how much it will shrink without the EU. I do know that most of the readers will disagree, but I, and I am an economist, believe that the UK would be better off if it not only stays in the EU but joins the EURO, in spite of the Greek disaster, which albeit, has not been dealt with properly.

I really do believe it will be a disaster for the UK to leave the EU. Apart from the financial and social drawbacks, the nearly certain result will be the succession of Scotland, which is very keen on staying in the EU. Even Wales may follow thereafter. What a disaster that would be!

In the event of a Brexit,the EU will be concerned for their exports to the UK. As for the UK,it will then be possible for the UK to look for markets further afield and consequently make trading agreements with those countries. As for Scotland,which ever way the the vote goes, The SNP will still want another referendum. As for Wales, I can only assume you are not British,otherwise you would know that the Welsh will likely vote with Northern England and vote to leave this corrupt so called Union.

How as the EU been prosperous when it has one of the lowest economic growths on the planet?

This is the World Bank data for economic growth by country - the first country that is close to one I would want to be part of the labour force is Ireland at number 46. Do you want Europe to mirror the likes of Turkmenistan, Chad or Rwanda? Stable and steady is my preferred option.

The economic argument in a nutshell The central argument is simple. The EU is by far the UK’s largest trading partner (Figure 1). Those who want to leave, do so to avoid (a) free movement, (cool.png budgetary contributions and © EU rules.

Trade with the EU could continue broadly unchanged by adopting the Norway model, but that makes no sense because it removes none of the factors in the previous bullet. Thus, leaving implies a ‘Canada’ or WTO arrangement, i.e. less good trading access to an EU market of 500 million people. Making up that loss by building new trade relations will not be quick or easy. The EU has strong internal incentives to use the UK to demonstrate to other member states the high cost of leaving; and the priority of non-EU countries will be to build trade agreements with the much larger EU market. - DT

the average youth unemployment rate since 2008 in the EU has been a shocking 20%. How can you honestly describe the EU as having being prosperous over the last 10 years?blink.png

As Scotland sought entry into the union 300 years ago the English should have a say as to whether they can leave.

The inner Irish border will be busy enough if we leave, offering the IRA a new lease of life via their racketeering. If Scotland goes too Hadrians Wall can expect to be used for the first time in 1500 years but as yet i'm unsure from which direction any threat will come.
