    Need some ACTION

    We are slowing the momentum of Brexit and its creating uncertain times for us and Europe.

    We now need to restore the economy before it dives.

    Reduce VAT to 15%

    Scrap NEW Stamp Duty Increases and Buy to Let extra Stamp Duty Charges.

    Start a National Council House Building Project.

    Offer building and development grants to industry and business.

    Offer EXPORT Incentives and enable Private or Public Companies to promote their products through Embassy networks

    Reduce Capital Gains Tax to 10%

    Are things looking good

    Sounds like property prices are moving up again after Brexit and Osborne’s war on Buy to Lets.,

    We might be able to keep the Chinese out of our Nuclear Power stations ie with the failure in France similar production the American Problem and the Australian Problem.

    Brexit seems to be going into the slow lane.Not good if we want to develop our overseas trade. We need that overseas trade now. Why wait to develop trade contracts we are leaving anyway.

    No to lower interest rates

    Lowering interest rates does not help us. We need the pound to get stronger. No a lot but just enough to stop companies in Europe surcharging us for their loss on selling
    to us with a lower pound.

    The Companies in Europe really need to get round this by selling their products in euros not pounds.However it appears they can make more money this way.

    Therefore lowering the interest rate seems to lower the pound and can boost exports and increase costs of imports. Plus It does not stimulate us to spend more or borrow more.

    Hinkley Point Power Station

    May be it is time to dump this project. EDF will find it difficult to complete this project. It is expensive electricity. China will be in the middle and it could be a political nightmare. We need to consider smaller nuclear units or push other projects such as gas wind and solar. Keep it small and not link it to countries outside Europe or America. Osborne was not on sound ground when he went for Chinese investment on such a large project.Maybe

    The UK Government needs to raise money and create an ENERGY BOND-also use EU Grants and Consider UK and European Companies

    Doctors and teachers need to get to work and accept whats offered

    Its time that Doctors and Teachers realise they need to accept whats on offer.

    The public are getting fed up with their attitude.

    There are lots of other workers who feel they need to take what they are given and be grateful.

    We are all under pressure but do not withdraw our services. The whole thing is getting too political.

    Its time to sort the Brexit problem out

    We have not dealt with ARTICLE 50 yet.

    Parliament really has to discuss and vote to agree to carry this out.

    Some of The Leaders of the European Union is part of our problem to negotiate.

    We and other members of EU all seem to need some sort of control on immigration.

    We all need the right immigrants to help our economy

    The UK is split in half with a clear view to leave

    Many people voted to get out as a protest vote. We do not like being dictated to.http://future60.co.uk/node/9

    So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    EUROZONE What do be do

    So when we vote to leave or stay.

    Where will we be.

    If we leave we be in a confused state.

    Bit like leaving your home. Directions and bills have to be sorted.

    Same with the country. Anything European will need re thinking or changing.

    This will create a vast amount of work.More work for the state.

    If we take the easy way and vote in. The workload will be minimum.

    The problem we will have is The Euro-zone is like The Roman Empire. We all want the

    status to be in it but in the end its not what the people wanted. It may then fall like
