Can't believe all these proposals going up in London!

Also worth mentioning that other English cities (especially Manchester) are finally seeing London-esque developments that should help to rebalance our economy.

Yes, Manchester is booming. And I've noticed there's more foreign investment there now as well. The Chinese are funding some big projects from what I've seen/read.

Yeah having the Chinese President visit Manchester as well as London last year must have been a great benefit, spreading Manchester's global profile.

Despite the polls showing Brexit is likely, construction is still booming. And there will be people who will say delays and changes are due to the Brexit but they don't know that and it will be used as an excuse. Personally this is a minor risk for are freedom compared to going to war with the Nazis. People need to be braver and understand that the closer powers are to individuals the better. If the uncertainly was such a big danger to the economy then surely the uncertainly and economy disaster would start when the polls are around 50/50 but it's just not happening, things will be fine. Also people need to know we aren't voting for the status que and the EU will grow and become even more dictatorial. What about risks of staying in, the 'risk' of destroying are fishing industry isn't there because the EU did that already. The fact we couldn't get change while threatening to leave shows the EU will not improve.

I am certainly not a fan of the EU but why take the risk and leave, it seems a pointless risk to take. Now that Germany is in total control of the EU there will be a lot less anti British sentiment, and Germany has similar ideas about the direction of the EU and it's economy that Britain does, now is the time we should be getting more involved in the restructuring of the EU so that our interests are more aligned, we have that opportunity now, as France has been sidelined, it's the wrong time to leave

Jamie's assertions are false with respect to the impact of a potential Brexit on London's construction/investment right now, and are driven more on emotion than fact.
