Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Germany etc. are quite dependent on trade with the UK, mostly running up big trade surpluses. European businesses are also quite dependent on the City for financial services.  All of these dependencies can be reduced with time, but the initial disruption could be considerable. Nothing on the scale f the disruption to the UK however.  "Fog in the Channel, Continent cut off" comes to mind...
