finally someone complained about brexit, here south portugal that has rocked the economy.

90%of my clients where uks, now had to look into other markets

Ah, are you a recent arrival at ArbTalk naturarbo??

 

If so, I may need to break some bad news....

 

My “complaining” about Brexit was heavily marinaded in irony. 
 

I remain and have always been very firmly in the pro Brexit camp.

OK bud, all the Brexit stuff has been done to death in the plethora of previous Brexit threads so best not open that box again here - we’ll get banned or booed off the forum 😂

 

That said, I am genuinely interested to hear how you interpret the “Brexit effect” and how it has effected you / your area - just not in this thread. 
 

I had an invite for Portuguese Grand Prix which is just 10 mins away from my mates villa (I’m not a GP fan but would have suffered through if it wasn’t for C19)

It was that GP.  Not going though...  Couldn't afford the time penalty of a potential quarantine on return, couldn't justify 'not essential' travel at the moment and not overly interested in GP.  

 

Under different circumstances I WOULD have jumped at the chance of some late sun, cold beer and hot chicks though.

 

Prob best not start a new Brexit thread - not sure it would generate much interest -  might be worth piggy-backing on a well established pre-existing one though:

Been a manic year for us, our second year running and got 1 spare week to fill in mid December and that's this year booked up. It's tough to gauge if we have done something right or the rona has just made the industry thrive. It's hard to make any business decisions in terms of buying new equipment or expanding because we don't know what is around the corner. On the other hand I think we are in quite a resilient industry when it comes down to it. Don't overstretch, keep a few pennies in the bank and I think most with muddle through :)
