So, the eurobanker Macron has won the French Presidential election...I don't see this playing out well for for the UK financial sector and the City.

The election of Macron is just another nail in the coffin of the "soft Brexit brigade.

The decision of all 27 to close ranks on trade agreements drives a wedge into the Westminster policy to divide and conquer. It would appear the EU policy is to prove that leaving the EU will be much more expensive than to remain.

It is almost certain that lowering the corporation tax to the lowest in Europe will not stop the exodus.

In the words of Bette Davis "Fasten your set belts its going to be a bumpy ride
