A truly historic day. It is 4 years and 8 months since I moved the motion in the House of Commons calling for a referendum on our membership of the European Union. The Better Off Out Group which I have chaired for the past few years has held many meetings when the prospect of us ever achieving our aim seemed a distant prospect.
Let me say at the outset, we must not forget millions did vote to stay in and I think it is incumbent on all those who have campaigned to leave to ensure that our departure from the EU is done swiftly and efficiently.
The markets, as always, over react. It will be a good time for anyone to buy shares as there could be plenty of relative bargains to be had. Of course, things might not be as bad if the Remain campaign had not spent so much time saying how bad, things would be if we voted to leave and instead had explained the reality that as the World’s fifth largest economy we would be able to thrive What matters is that we as a Country make things that other countries want to buy.
