So, what does Brexit mean for Wiltshire Businesses? Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

July 1, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

We’ve seen scary headlines – falling house prices, rising or is it falling interest rates and house prices, cataclysmic falls in the value of sterling, stock market turmoil, political careers ended, alienation of old and young, civil war – where will it stop?

  • A Prime Minister resigned.
  • The £ plummeted.
  • The FTSE 100 lost significant ground. But then the £ rallied past February levels, and the FTSE closed on a weekly high: 2.4% up on last Friday, its best performance in 4 months.
  • President Obama decided we wouldn’t be at the ‘back of the queue’ after all and that our ‘special relationship’ was still strong.
  • The French President confirmed the Le Touquet agreement would stay in place.
  • The President of the European Commission stated Brexit negotiations would be ‘orderly’ and stressed the UK would continue to be a ‘close partner’ of the EU.
  • A big bank denied reports it would shift 2,000 staff overseas.
  • The CBI, vehemently anti-Brexit during the referendum campaign, stated British business was resilient and would adapt.
  • Several countries outside the EU stated they wished to begin bi-lateral trade talks with the UK immediately.
  • The BOE Governor promised £250bn to support the Economy.

So is it all as bad as the media would have us believe?

Inspire will try with the help of Ex Bank of England Director for the South West and Economist, Kevin Butler, to untangle some of the hysteria from the facts and light a candle rather than cursing the darkness at our breakfast on Friday July 1 at Cumberwell Golf Club.
