    There is absolutely no reason to fear the consequences of a hard Brexit.
    It will barely be worse than 1947.

    Poor Dickie. What would he know about WW2? As I understand it, there was a bit of hardship due to some German git bombing towns and cities, sinking ships and killing people. Then there were the French surrendering. The Russians wanting supplies and a “second front” all the time. And the Americans sitting out the first three years and then having to be taught how to do things.

    And yet, if Britain hadn't fought, Hitler and even Mussolini would have won. Someone went to Norway. Then went to the Mediterranean, North Africa and the South Atlantic and won.

    And now the French and the Germans, particularly, are showing their “gratitude”. It seems that Britain loaned post-war Germany lots of money. Then “let it off” £trillions in repayments. Meanwhile, Britain had saved a large part of France's army. Who, strangely, called themselves the Free French. Although it was Britain that gave them accommodation, food, clothing, weapons, ammunition, transport.
