French economy minister  Emmanuel Macron speaking in Le Monde 18 June 2016

"Leaving the EU would mean the Guernseyfication of the UK which would then be a little country on the world scale. It would isolate itself and become a trading post and arbitration place at Europe's border"

  • the European Council would have to send a "very firm message and timetable" to the UK on the consequences of Brexit if UK decides to leave the EU.

Wow, that will have UK voters quaking in their boots. Not.

Inhabitants of Guernsey won't be too flattered either.

I'm off to enjoy the rest of my Saturday amidst the rare sight of sunshine ( June is forecast to be the wettest on record here).  Have a great weekend one and all and thanks again for your support and fantastic input.

Macron - UK would become as significant as Guernsey
