NHS
This tracks how the NHS is doing and in particular, if the promised weekly £350 million pounds have any chance to materialise. We already know that the UK never was giving £350 million to the EU, as we had a special rebate. And of course a lot of that money came back to us to renovate towns in Wales, to pay for scientific research and to help our farmers amongst other things. Now all of these are fighting to keep the money they used to get, so there is very little chance any extra money will ever reach the NHS.

Economy (Prices, Inflation, etc.)
Prices will go up if the £ stays down and if the government decides to introduce tariffs on imports to protect UK businesses.

Trade Deals
We need Trade Deals to sell our stuff. Otherwise, said stuff gets taxed on import, and we get more expensive than the local goods. In the EU there are no such taxes (tariffs). A trade deal takes 5 to 10 years to put together and it's not like we're in a position of strength, being on our own and all that. A hard Brexit means we're out of the Single Market and we get tariffs applied on our wares. Ouch. And as Australia has reminded us, we can't work on any deal until we're properly out. We're up for a DECADE of pain at least. And then, we'll be lucky if we get any crap deal at all.

Investments into the UK
Since Margaret Thatcher, the UK has been relying heavily on inward investment for job creation and maintaining the economy on an upward growth curve. As with anything else, investors loook at potential returns and will not risk their money if the potential is too low or if the future is uncertain. Hard brexit Britain will cut itself from free access to the EU Single Market and that is the mother of all downers for investors.

£
The £, otherwise known as 'pound' or GBP, is the currency we use in the UK. Because we're the only country to use it, whatever we buy abroad needs to be bought in other currencies. We can trade pounds for other currencies such as Yens, Dollars or Euros, but depending on the trust and confidence foreigners put in the £, they may ask more or less £ in exchange of their own money. Since Theresa May has announced we will have a hard brexit (twice now!), foreign countries seem to agree our £ and the business activity it underwrites are in serious trouble. So the £ is going down. This will become red if we go below 30% devaluation compared to June 23rd, 2016.
Barely a few days after Article 50 was invoked and big dark clouds are gathering above the £: losing the Euro clearing business COULD TAKE 30% OFF THE VALUE OF THE £, as warned by many on the continent.

Farming, Fishing, food Industry
We depend on our farming industry for some of our food and for the livelihood of our farmers. If you fly the British flag high, you should be proud of a tradition going back thousands of years. In modern times, many farmers have been faced with commercial pressures unheared of for most of Farming's history and a lot have benefitted from the help of the EU in the form of CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) subsidies.

Environment
Most people, from any political persuasion agree that our planet is in danger, that the environment needs looking after. It is our duty to protect animals rather than exterminate them to extinction. We now know that diesel fumes cause asthma in children in cancer in every one. We're not going to have petrol forever anyway, so any decent government needs to look into all that and make sure the planet, starting with the country, is well looked after. In April 2017, official documents were leaked in a train while a civil servant was browsing them. Basically the documents were saying that Prime Mnnister Theresa May was ready to sacrifice the Environment for brexit.

UK
The EU affords a lot of advantages to UK regions or nations. For example Northern Ireland has benefitted from peace, prosperity and freedom of movement under European auspices since the Good Friday agreement. Scotland has voted massively to stay in the EU and places like Gibraltar - strategically vital - take advantage of open borders and trade opportunities. Will we stay together as a country though?

Education
Just like the NHS, schools and universities relie on talent from overseas and in particular the EU. It could be vital teacher assistants, the teachers themselves or researchers in Universities. As brexit causes the economy to decline and faulter, money available to the education sector will dwindle and that will jeopardise our children's future.

Immigration
Freedom of Movement has two sides. On one hand this allows you to go to Ibiza on holiday as if you were just going to Blackpool. It also allows you to find a job there, stay there and live there, in Ibiza or any of the other 27 EU countries. On the other hand, anyone from the EU can come here to work and live too. Is it advisable to close our borders? Who's going to pick our strawberries, who's going to care for us in the NHS? Do we really want to pay for Visas to go to Ibiza? Or have one downright refused because they will now be keeping files on us? Thing is the EU makes it one non negotiable thing to let people in AND to allow our products out so it seems you can't have prosperity AND closed borders at the same time. With Brexit, no-one's winning.

Business, Industry
We make money selling things abroad. This may be easy (as it is now in the EU) or it may be difficult (as it is to sell in Japan, which has loads of trade barriers). Leaving the EU will make it difficult for us to do business there there, and it will make it difficult at least for a while to sell into markets we are selling in now via EU trade deals. The logistics of trade may also be affected by brexit.

Finance, Banking Sector, Legal Sector
8% of the UK's GDP comes from the financial sector, this is a lot of tax money that helps building roads and schools, pay for the NHS and our military. While we are in the EU we can take part in the lucrative Euro (€) trade. Expect job losses and relocalisations to Dublin, Frankfort or The Hague. Then cuts in the NHS. Ouch. 20 Oct. 2016: there are more and more noises about banks leaving. Keeping this orange while it's still only noises, but this is worrying.

Workers' Rights
Loads of your rights at work are guaranteed by the EU. Think minimum wage, paid holidays and above all working hours, or the most your employer can force you to do in a week. If the Tories stay in power, expect these rights to be diminished. If Labour comes to power, you may expect a bigger minimum wage, but that may lead to even more businesses moving abroad and lay-offs.

Car Manufacturing
Car manufacturing is a big employer and revenue generator in the UK. We owe a lot of that to one Maggie Thatcher, Prime Minister in her time, who modelled the Single Market to our advantage and then invited Japanase brands to come and build their vehicles over here, allowing them to sell them to the whole of Europe.

Defence, Armed forces, Military, Security
That's our Army and Navy, and our AirForce too. Not that brexit or not, we collaborate a lot with the French, because it saves us money and the French want to hit pretty much the same bad guys. In today's world, military kit is highly sophisticated (think drones, satellites and lasers) and we need components, if not fully built airplanes from abroad (See F35 'one darn expensive bird' below). How is the low £ affect all this? And we need to cooperate too, won't our former EU partners hold a grudge?

Housing Market
brexit will affect all aspects of the economy, and certainly the housing market won't be spared. The first signs of worries were already evident in October 2016 to the professionals. Uncertainty, and then economic downfall caused by loss of jobs and businesses moving to the EU will make people poorer, which will drive house prices down and you may find yourself in negative equity.

Tech, Science, Pharma, Aerospace
If tecchies leave, we lose know-how. We'll look less attractive to investment. Not to mention that to make money these days, you'd better be in Tech. As part of the EU, the UK takes part in many scientific and research projects. Now that everyone is scrambling to get their hands on what used to come from the EU - yes the infamous £350 million a week (but in truth a lot less) - a lot of projects are being threatened. Worse, UK scientists are being shunned because their projects would not get money outside of the EU. We are already hearing that loads of projects are being either cancelled or put on hold.

Exports
As a country, we make money on stuff we sell. You'd think that a low £ would help. Indeed it will at the beginning, but soon, raw materials and parts will become very costly for us to buy. And stuff we import will become more costly (food, petrol). If on the other hand, the £ goes up again, we lose are selling advantage. If you're smelling a rat, you are right. Our current export successes rely on a sick currency. Something's gotta give... CHANGED TO ORANGE January 22, 2017

International Standing and Control
Thanks to its place in the EU, the UK was thought of a favoured diplomatic partner to access the whole of Europe, especially for the Americans and Australians or members of the Commonwealth. Now that the UK has chosen to isolate itself away from the EU, it may lose its appeal and beyond that its reach and relevance on the international scene.

Every Day Life, Holidays
Over the years, the EU has made things that were otherwise complicated such as looking for work abroad easy. Same for travel and money exchange, especially in Eurozone. Leaving the EU means added paperwork, longer formalities, abiding to rules we won't have a say on anymore. And of course as the £ loses value against all currencies in the world, it means many things will become a lot more costly.

Pensions
The pension we receive after retirement is linked to many economic factors. It will depend on the state of the economy, interest rates and even birth rates. It will depend on what the government will prioritise. And it seems clear that for us retiring in a decade or two, things will get much more difficult indeed, brexit or no brexit.
