Default Life after Brexit

Given the polarised opinions about Leave or Remain, it would be interesting to hear about everyday folks' experiences, and whether the purported positives and negatives have a material - or other - effect upon real lives.

I wouldn't want this to be all about monetary issues - although I appreciate it's all consuming to some on here - but qualitative issues too.

I guess the first example is a quantitative and monetary effect, and a negative, with Lower's company losing a £1m order to Poland.

Whilst I am merely a casual user of Facebook, a positive outcome of Brexit is a recent massive decline in postings of images of cats doing cute things...

Too early to say for most isn't it?

I haven't had to fight my way through the zombie apocalypse (any more than usual) this morning.

I doubt anyone has come in to work and received a redundancy notice "because Brexit".

I expect any and all disasters in the coming few weeks to be attributed to Brexit.

On a personal note, the property market matters to me.

I track my area of interest daily and have been for six months so I should spot any changes.

Whether they have anything to do with Brexit will be harder to quantify.

You ask about quality.

It's the happiest I've been for weeks and that goes for rest of my friends in Combat 18-30.

Those enforcing rules for the council seem quite tearful.

Hope that helps.

What do you expect?

Unless it's something specific like Lower's example it's too early to say.

If I'm wrong, this thread will run to hundreds of pages, stuffed with verifiable examples, in the next 48 hours.

You can probably expect a load of made up stuff to emerge.

After all, we have already seen 80,000 fraudulent votes on the 'best of three' petition.

A part fell out of my stapler on Friday. Bloody Brexit.

Fortunately it only auto-retracts the staple tensioner, so is about as relevant.

And the screws fell out of my Ryobi trimmer motor unit and disappeared in the hedge clippings. Bloody Brexit.

I was able to cut down some stove bolts, so similarly, a disaster did not result.

Far too early. We'll talk again after (if) art. 50 is invoked.

We have to transfer money every month in order to pay our bills. Just before Brexit the Bajan $ stood at 3.00/£. It is now at 2.65/£.
Our loss on a £3000 transfer is Bds$ 1050 or £396.
That hurts and will directly affect our everyday lives.
Thank you Brexit,in particular the thick Yorkshire twat who voted out because he did not mind the free movement of Europeans but wanted to keep the Syrians out. You could not make it up.
Anyone who thinks that Brexit was not won by an anti immigration vote is living in cloud cuckoo land.

Anyone know what will happen if you want to import a UK car to europe? I guess nothing is going to change in the next few months but it may be a major pain when you guys aren't in the EU anymore?

We had a new staff member due to start in a couple of months. She has decided to leave the UK and go back to Germany.
