Britain's fate is not linked to the eurozone. It is the eurozone that is fucking Britain. Britain still has a commonwealth. Closer trade and economic links could be made with said commonwealth countries.
Fact is, Britain still has a lot of skill and innovation, but it chooses to export it as opposed to invest in it. Take wave power technology for example. Exeter university leads the world in utilising wave power. The Japanese, I believe, are now further pioneering this because the British government will not invest.
Brand Britain is still very sought after. Just look at the success of companies like McLaren, who have one of the most high tech car factories in the world. They now are building super-cars for the commercial market. Although they will not be mass producing them, they are tailoring them to a certain market and maximising profits.
The same sort of ethos needs to be breed back into Britain from top down.
Ireland fucked itself with its generous benefit system.
That's socialism for you.

Does Europe represent the world?
I think not,
Britain does more trade out-side the Euro-zone.

well i hope your right man but i cant see it lasting more than 6 months , theres a real fear in europe that the whole banking system is on the verge of a catastrophic collapse
We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.

That is true.
I don't know how it will all pan out.
Doesn't look good though.
