"That 'fact' about Morgan Stanley has been rebutted."
No it hasn't - read what it says.
It says there are no official plans to move or no immediate plans to make changes - the world of difference.
This type of reaction will not be the last.
Apparently, one of the problems ids that once things are in place, British firms will no longer have free passage across Europe with their goods and, apart from the delays, application for permission to cross will become a major issue.
As predicted, this will set the peace process in Ireland back decades, already they are planning to re-erect the border posts.
I've been listening to interviews with Irish citizens living in England - one tearful lady told how she has seen Britain swing to rapidly to the right, particularly on the question of race describing how she was constantly been told about "these bloody immigrants".
When she pointed out that she was an immigrant, the response was "Ah, but you're different" - "White" she presumed they meant.
Her son, who was born in England, was "Feckin' off to Germany - there's no future here".   
On the other hand, an Englishman (extremely lumpen-sounding) man living in Donegal said he had voted 'Leave' because "we want our freedom back'.
I have little doubt that there those who will not be bothered at what's happening to England (I exclude Scotland - they seem to be considering a way back to Europe for themselves.
I feel both worried, for my friends and family, and more than a little ashamed that the people I lived among for all of my life, my people, should have allowed England to sink to this level.
