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

EU is now in recession, car making with internal combustion engines is a thing of the past so Germany will not be the big powerhouse going forward.
The potential problem with Germany going forward will not so much be that they run out of cool stuff to make (Germany makes much much more than cars), but the risk of a political slide to the left. The German left doesn't understand what's wrong with draconic taxes and an anti-innovation, anti-technology mindset. The centre left in Germany is weakened, maybe terminally so, and stoichally refusing to reform or reinvent itself. The greens and the far left are running the circus. It's a train crash in the making.
