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

High streets boarded up etc etc, everything just seems to be run down, granted this is the SE.
Yes, this is an aspect I really noticed when I went back. I lived in Stirling for 6 years in the early 2000s and it was a lovely small city with a thriving centre, a good mix of national chains and local suppliers and generally a nice place to live and go out. I've been back a few times in the last 5 years and the high street is half boarded up, and the shops have morphed from nice little boutique style places to about 12 bookies, a few pound shops and some discount travel agents. The decline is shocking.
