Press can say whatever they want. Most of it is conjecture anyway. I prefer to trust the sources coming out of westmonster

1) Leave voters seeing reality, still a majority confident.
2) HSBC is a declining bank even before brexit.
3) Not all down to brexit, look it up.
4) Go and look at history interest rates, you'll realise its just back to normal.
5) Won't happen.
6) EU always acts tough at the beginning, we'll get what we want, watch.
7) The world is a f up world, we're very developed and liberal comparing to the world that is barely developed like us.
8) What.... this is just because its the same old and all it will cause is more problems, they are fed up and want to solve it, who chaired it and did they snub Britain? No....EU still wants our military power and security intelligence as its superior to theirs and military power is second biggest and is expected to be the strongest in the future at current rate.

So to add some more:

* The government is in no way either ready, or taking the right steps now, to commit to the sort of detailed negotiations that will be needed if we are to retain access to EU markets in depth. They don't have a negotiating team and they aren't recruiting one. This must mean that the government are effectively capitulating to the 'abandon the Single Market completely' view - which inevitably will lead to a severe economic contraction starting in a few year's time.

* The government also appear to realise this is bound to happen, which is why they are pulling even harder on the austerity levers at the moment, preparing for a sharp decline in tax revenues post-Brexit.

* There is no plan beyond grovelling to the Gulf states to sell even more weapon systems and to tiny export markets like India to ask for a few more crumbs.

* The UK continues to be poised to lose its world lead in university-based research, which will cause a major collapse in the university sector and a brain drain of leading UK researchers and scientists to Europe and the US.

* Not to worry though, because the one thing the Tories have firmly committed to is replacing the large EU subsidies to landowners like the Duke of Devonshire and Lord Rothermere, owner of the Daily Mail, that they get for not farming their lands.
