I know exactly what it is. Do you?

The biggest industry in the UK is financial services correct? Derivatives just about guarantees the safety of the financial industry.
Most of the financial services market is moving out. The Netherlands is smiling all the way to the bank currently.

A couple of high profile announcements milked on the MSM 24/7 for project fear does not equal "most of".

You're going to need a source for such a bold statement.

You mean like Bank of America? Because they move out!

And the Morgans, City, Goldman too.

Maybe the Jonah Bank of Wyoming will fill the gap, who knows? (It is a real bank, yes)

I'm sure most moved due to the uncertainty. There is a safety net now. So maybe those who planned or moving or moved might be thinking a bit different now.

A month before is a bit late.

The IT has already moved, the offices are rented and furnished, the HR has transferred the work contracts...

It's now easier to go ahead than stop the move.

Sure, not saying it couldn't have been earlier. Those that have left have left. But new ones will come in, others will expand and the likes. There is nothing negative about this. I don't see why you guys are trying to make this negative :confused:

No, I don't see the news as negative. Good for the UK.

Just won't make the moves stop.

panic? jesus christ, contract with an EU shipping company until you have your own pallets, this **** is not hard.
Because more third party EU compliant pallets have obviously been delivered by the Holy Spirit and EU shipping companies have millions of unused ones in stock?

Of course they do.... They have fields of them to harvest from.

if not EU, then China, guaranteed that there's a shipping company out there, with enough of "the right type of" pallets that will want a big contract like shipping the entire UK's EU bound exports for a couple of months

again, this **** is not hard, if something as insignificant as this causes a panic then those who panic better be fired and replaced with someone that at least has a brain, hopefully also a spine

It's not hard. Nothing has ever been hard.

The issue is that nobody actually does it and now there's less than a month remaining to do everything.
