Richard Branson

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/14...n-galactic-spt

A stalwart of the Remain camp, Sir Richard several times warned that Britain would dwindle outside the EU.

The self-made billionaire said he was willing to bet that eventually, the tide would turn and the UK would rejoin the bloc within the next ten years.

This, he said, would be done even without the need for a second referendum.
Not in our life time, at least he concedes that.

Re: Richard Branson

From previous link.

He told the South China Morning Post in 2017:

"I would be willing to forecast that if they continue without allowing a second referendum, within 10 years Britain will be back in the European Union again.

"A lot of people my age will have died out and young people will overwhelmingly realise what a mistake was made and they will vote to join the European Union again.

"It is just sad to see the damage that is going to be done in the meantime".

A non specific comment, any damage wholly attributable to politicians. Wishful thinking.

Re: Richard Branson

Meanwhile, Branson subsidises space exploration, looking for somewhere to escape to?

We shall see!

Has he not noticed the ill-feeling among some of the EU countries, and not just East European ones, even France?

My counter-forecast is that within ten years we shall see other EU countries leaving the Empire, especially as they see the progress that we have made, even despite Boris's dithering and going down on the knee to Brussels!

They're already talking about it.
