Fearing a drain of capital, from the 7th March any pension funds transferred to another country's scheme from the UK will incur a 25% charge.

That's too bad, YM.

A bunch of Brits living and working in the Netherlands are taking their case to the European court because they are in danger of losing their EU citizenship and will be unable to travel throughout Europe as Brits after the Brexit.  I took the easy way and changed my nationality to Dutch.

This 25% charge is levied by who, or whom (covering the bases)?

Mrs YI and my two "kids", all UK-born, are now Dutch citizens. If I still lived there I would be as well. Obvious no-brainer. My antidote is an Irish passport, which I can get because my mother's father was Irish.

But Brexit hasn't happened yet, and there's still a chance it might never happen. The insane truth is still being concealed by the government, but many Brexit voters are beginning to realise that they're going to have to admit they did something unbelievably stupid, there's no pie in the sky, and demand another ref.

I can dream.

I would say Brexit is a bit like having sex with John Leslie, you can kick and scream as much as you like but it's pretty much going to happen anyway.

I don't think there is any evidence that many Leave voters have changed their mind.  The last poll I saw suggested that there were some who wished they had voted differently but it was pretty marginal.  However there was a significant majority believing that we should none the less plough on with Brexit. As one staunch remainer was heard (R4 some time ago) to say, the British people have the right to wreck their country if they choose.  The problem of course is that they will also wreck it for the 48% who voted to stay.
