So what are we ‘losing’ by leaving the EU?

Even before we leave we have lost:

  1. Parliamentary control
  2. World respect
  3. A certain future
  4. Financial security
  5. The argument for brexit

And so much more....
 
how worried should we be?

not worried at all.

this is Britain not some God forsaken European backwater that was a fascist/dictatorship state only within living memory.

The only beneficiaries of the HRS are wrong 'uns.

EUtopian states that have had proper fascist governments in living menory

Germany
Greece
Romania
Spain
Portugal


You could add in another hanfpdfull who were arguably close enough to qualify.

Add Italy to the list
 
There's a raft of EU regulations that it would be silly to get rid of. Hopefully we can walk and chew gum at the same time by keeping what's good and hoofing what's bad. I really don't see us as a country incapable of enacting some rules that emulate what's in place on the continent just because we're not in the same club anymore.

Once we are out I would expect interested parties (like fishermen, farmers etc) via their industry bodies to approach Gvt depts. to thin out any regulatory rubbish. In fact I would expect this process to be already in hand considering everyone has had two and a half years to think about things. Any organisation that isn't tuned up for Brexit is asleep on watch.

Well, that's about 0.9% of the UK GDP sorted out, then.

Your point is?

Countries that have been involved in a European War would be like...

Now try getting the Germans to stand up and fight. Times change; old people just get old and become idiots. You are not Time so you must be an...?
 
Thinking about, the EU as a trading bloc is a bit strange

Why does EU trading bloc require an army, a flag, an anthem, not one parliament but three, a central bank, a currency, a council of ministers, a court, and can overturn democratically elected governments such as in Italy

A people shout down the idea that they're moving towards even closer union and one greater European nation led by Germany....
 
I run a retail business on the side and some of the products I "import" are from EU countries, so I can image I'll be having pay import tax/duty on goods coming in.

Obviously that's a matter of tightening up records of accounts.

Jobs are another, alot of cororate businesses are p1ssing off and cutting jobs in the UK, relocating positions to the EU were its less costly to employ specialised personnel and they don't have to put up with our whinging.

No one will want our business just to be spiteful and prove a point thanks to UK arrogance and to irritate us as "has beens".

Trade and investment will suffer.

Working in the EU, for the right skill set I'm sure it's going to be a pain in the backside, you'll need to apply for long term visas.

Migrants whom have been here for over 5 years can apply for Indefinate Leave to Remain and not lose anything.

Are we actually going to benefit much? In my eyes no.

Attention!

Yet our unemployment rate is one of the lowest in Europe.
