Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I've said many times, most of the impact of Brexit - even a hard cliff edge Brexit - will be slow, incremental and long term. It's like turning a large ocean tanker around. London has been the financial services centre driving much of European private sector growth - or at least facilitating it. Gradually that will change.  But once it changes, it will also be almost impossible to reverse. The UK built a financial services empire in the aftermath of its loss of the real one. Now that too will slowly disintegrate.
