This is going to get ugly...

EU referendum: Moody's cut UK's credit outlook to 'negative'


Not that any Brexit voters will take any notice, they didn't want to listen to all the experts before the vote so they certainly won't now.

The impact on debt and imported inflation may mean an eventual rise in rates to the general population but should also mean savers gain, the ones who supply the money to lend.
If however growth slows dramatically we may find the BoE conflicted. On the one hand they will wish to lower base rates to 0.25 and then zero, but may be constricted by the need to tackle the imported inflation and debt issues mentioned.
The lower pound is however very good news for exporters and firms who's activities are non-sterling who will see a boost to sterling reported profitability and dividends. This maybe a factor in the ft100's partial recovery yesterday as multinationals' overseas earnings/dividends may actually be boosted.

Yes the SNP are clearly about to get into referendum mode again. I guess if they can show they have a realistic chance of winning via polling representative samples then I see no obvious reason why they should be denied. There will be Unionist arguments that they lost 2 years ago but that can be countered by the recent EU referendum where the voice of the people (won every area) counted for nothing.
Would they win? Yes I think they would this time and good luck to them. I sincerely hope they do win and independence frees them to go forth and prosper.
Sinn Fein are also making some noises about a NI referendum for a Utd Ireland, another good move imho as long as there is clear polling indications of a potential win.
We live in interesting times, change is on the menu in large portions, tuck in.

the people
Had forfeited the confidence of the government
And could win it back only
By redoubled efforts. Would it not be easier
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?

Those Project Fear predictions in full:

David Cameron: “The job you do, the home you live in are at risk. The shock to our economy after leaving Europe would tip the country into recession.”

George Osborne: “A vote to leave would tip our economy into year-long recession with at least 500,000 UK jobs lost”

Treasury: “UK economy would fall into recession”, predicted 2016 Q3 growth between -0.1% and -1%

IMF: “Brexit would trigger recession”, predicted -0.3% GDP for Q3

Bank of England: Mark Carney said “It would be likely to have a negative impact in the short term… I certainly think that would increase the risk of recession.”

OECD: Short term impact of -1.25% GDP

Today’s GDP figures are +0.5%. big_boss.gif

Cameron was an absolute disgrace as PM, probably the worst in England's history. A slick, but empty vessel who's focus was solely on helping his rich friends grow richer at the expense of everyone else.
