El Brexit

Hello Mr Candy - I am from England - a general British voter. The EU was planning to bring in loads of financial regulations to the UK which we could not have supported and would not have been good for anyone. Lots of City traders are voting Leave. Can I ask you to help people to learn how to stop worrying and learn to love the 'Brexit' bomb - a reference to the Peter Sellers film Dr Strangelove if you weren't aware of it. The English lion is roaring. We think people in business and investment and finance have taken their eye off the ball a bit recently and failed to pay attention to the average British voter in the Provinces. Thank you for your article and best regards. Helena West Country England 44 1542 546201
