I believe it said on BBC news that 5% of its business is EU.  Everyone interviewed seemed quite relaxed about it.

Calm down dear.

They bare opening a subsidiary to deal solely with EU business

Out of the 700 people employed in London approx. 10-20 jobs will move to Brussels

Approx 5% of their business MAY be affected by Brexit

I think we will survive - despite your best wishes Roll Eyes

We won't survive without immigrants.

We can't roll the UK back to the 1950s, to a time of cricket on the lawn and maidens on bikes and tea at the vicarage, even though that does seem to be what the barking Brexiteers voted for.

I don't accept that but won't argue the point since it is totally irrelevant to Lloyds decision to open a branch in Brussels

Ever wondered why foreign businesses and banks have offices in UK (since well before we joined the EU)

As a matter of interest roughly how many immigrants do you estimate we need to 'survive' and why?
