    What pluses will we gain when we leave EU?

    As a business woman, I naturally look for the good reasons to buy a property.  I look at areas demand etc etc.

    Every day I see the folk who wish to remain in the EU forecasting really bad things for the UK

    Can I ask fellow tribes members what good you think will come our way ?

    My own guess is Boris is going to follow the footsteps of Trump

    It's not important to me if I like Trump or I dont like Trump - The US voted for him and that's their choice

    But I can see where the man is coming from

    He has reduced Taxes and Regulation and the results is low unemployment and the USA looks good

    Personalty I dont like what Trump says, but I do like what he is doing for business

    If Boris drops taxes and regulation in the same way, it can't do us any harm

    On this topic it's easy to be drawn about Trump's style - I want to look past his personal views But I am very interested in seeing the outcome of his actions

    So If Boris follows Trump , what good do you see for the UK after we leave the EU ?

    I am personally very optimistic for business because I see a better road ahead

    Do you see opportunity on this sunny bank holiday weekend or do you see the worst outcome for your business in the next 5 years or more?

    I would urge you not to make it personal about Trump as it serves no purpose. Keep your views focussed on business if you can!

    We have already endured 3 years of misinformation, indecision and uncertainty regarding the future of our country. Whatever happens next, we will still have to endure some more from those who feel the need to criticise. As this subsides there will hopefully then be some clarity.

    Politicians, whatever their allegiance, will be able to return to everyday politics. Policies and budgets will be announced and only then we will be able to ascertain where there are opportunities.

    I don't much care who is in the driving seat, there will always be opportunities with property. Its down to us to put our energies into identifying the new ones rather than complaining about those that have been lost.

    I agree the UK for the past 3 years has been a mad house

    It has proved to me what I have thought for the past 20 years we have crap Management in the UK But Thats Politicians for you  

    But I agree we have to focus on how good we manage our affairs

    I want to see Taxes cut and regulation cut so the UK can trade with who ever we want

    Tax cuts; sounds good but there are no magic money trees.

    Regulation cuts; Lower standards.

    Regulation cuts; Lower standards.

    So the converse would mean if we had Regulated rents it would increase standereds in the PRS

    Potentially the UK will have control over VAT. VAT was introduced in 1972. It's a European concept and doesn't fit well with UK free-market mentality, being a tax on consumption that is regressive in nature.

    Imagine if VAT rates were decreased? Our profits would shoot upwards!

    One can only dream...............

    VAT was 15% a few years back.......20% was supposed to be a temp measure.

    a UK / Britain First Strategy if genuine can only mean a good thing for our union - however there are many / majority that do not have their interests aligned with Britain so I expect the bickering and infighting to continue - much to the detriment of Britain - in summary - more of the same of the last 3 wasted years.

    "Blue passports: Rat for lunch" - Can you explain a little further?

    I don't see the issue, the UK had blue passports until 1988.

    The Kuwaiti passport is blue, they are considered to have to most valuable currency in the world.

    The USA has blue, they are the world's largest economy by GDP.  The colour of the passport has only a small meaning

    Within the EU the UK can adjust VAT within cerftain  bounds.  It is not at the lower bound currently.

    Corporation tax is likely to be lowered further, benefitting those of us using companies.
