Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Not forgetting either that most of the energy suppliers are now French, German, etc- water supplies even, and of curse nuclear energy too. They've got us over a barrel seems to come to mind.

The winners are hardly going to be the 'ordinary' little folk some seem to care about (not).
Why should foreign owned assets be more problematic outside of the EU than inside? Even the Chinese have a stake in British nuclear power now. Nobody is going to randomly raise prices because they are on a revenge trip. That's not how the market works.

British companies also own stuff in Germany. Sky for example owns a lot of TV stuff, and Stagecoach runs bus rural services in different parts. Are the Germans now running scared that the Brits are going to twist the knife on them? Then why should the inverse be a problem?
