why do myou think the EU will make trade aggrements? that would be stupid they will have to make an example of what happens when you leave the EU otherwise others others would start to think "why should i stay when i can have all the benefits after leaving the EU" so they will have to be strict or they would allow everyone to leave and the EU would have failed and that is not gonna happen we all know that

I never said the EU would make trade deals with the UK immediately, but it would probably happen eventually. The UK on the other hand, would start to make loads of deals with all the nations that are friendly with them.

True British arrogance is the certainty that your little nation is economically utterly untouchable, yet the European Union of several dozen other countries is absolutely going to fail.

Nobody has said that the UK will get out without any consequences, only that the consequences are worth it. The EU has several smaller nations dragging it down, like Greece, that make it much more difficult to succeed than if it was a union of only successful nations, like just France, Germany, Denmark, and the UK as an example.

Although border stuff may make trading and selling harder, big companies aren't going to risk good profit just because it costs a little extra to deliver

I agree this initial freefall is because of speculation, but tighter border control is bound to have a negative impact on trade. It won't kill your economy for sure but I wouldn't want to be a business that trades internationally in UK right now.

Lets face it, the brexit was like like 90% about immigration and fears over ending up like Germany and Sweden. I mean, valid concerns considering the news about it in those countries is fucking awful. Who would want that to happen to their city?

Immigration and trade are two completely separate issues. Britain will have to take the time to renegotiate a ton of trade deals, and the EU will try to punish them economically, but if the UK holds off and the EU topples like it probably will, then the UK will ultimately come out ahead. In the mean time, importing millions to fill up low and unskilled jobs doesn't really help the economy, and ultimately has a negative impact on the native population. In the mean time, this is a massive potential boon for countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the USA, who are on friendly terms with the UK, and now have a chance to negotiate new trade deals specifically with them, rather than with the EU as a whole. I don't see why you wouldn't want to take advantage of that.
