UK will be 'cut off' from 'full intelligence picture' after Brexit – Europol strategy man

Bloody hell.

This just seems to get worse and worse. First it looks as if we will not be able to take advantage of the Single market. Then the banks are getting twitchy over the possible loss of "passporting" that allows them to move money from country to country. Then it's possible that we will have to rely on WTO rules for trade when we leave. Now we may be cut off from intelligence vital to our security. The list goes on and on.

So I ask, what the hell was the point of voting to leave? We aren't going to get the mythical £350 million to spend on the NHS. If we do get the right to restrict immigration our economy may suffer a big hit, although the points based system promised by Leave has been ruled out by the PM. As rtfazeberdee says above that's really cutting off your nose to spite your face and doing it in grand style.

As I have said many times, stupid, short-sighted, xenophobic and self-destructive.
