Although Boleat himself along with most of the financial establishment backed Remain, he points out that some of the scare stories put about will come to nothing: “Nobody is going to say ‘we are closing down in London'”.
He has also pushed for the Brexit process to be carried out decisively with no messing about on either side: “We would hope that the negotiations go quickly and go well.”
This is the economic reality. Business has accepted Brexit and can now see that the process needs to be carried out in the best interests of the nation as quickly and effectively as possible. A far cry from the lies that London would be finished outside of the European Union!
