If the internet is the materialisation of Hegel's spirit/mind in infrastructure, then having access to the fastest internet basically makes you part of the Spirit conversing with itself at a rate of 10⁹ bauds. If I were in the UK, I'd partake in a slow and laggy Spirit.

If Brussels has any intention of moving one of the City of London’s trading jewels to continental Europe after Brexit, it will need to move mountains — or at least mountains of fibre optic cables.

A study by the European Central Bank on Wednesday concluded that the undersea cables, usually about the diameter of a skateboard wheel, are a critical factor in determining the competitive strength of financial centres.

Wresting euro currency trading from London after the UK’s exit from the EU 2019 will involve building a similarly-sized network of cables on the continent, the ECB determined.

Leaving the EU and securing our borders is what the British people voted on and is what will be delivered. Nowadays too many people from eastern europe are flocking to the UK and taking jobs that British people could be having, these eastern europeans then send their money back to Poland or Romania causing a leakage of our currency. There is a reason why any sane person in eastern europe are flocking to the UK. Also most of these people tend to also be exploited for their money and are paid less. Polish people are some of the worst at integrating into our economy. If the the UK wants to get back onto the world stage, as much as the bureaucrats over in Brussels may hate it, Brexit was absolutely necessary.

Who said Germans don't prepare for any possibility..

German firms told to prepare for hard Brexit or face heavy losses
Firms with presence in UK must make provisions for hard exit. Anything else is naive, warns trade chief

German firms operating in the UK must brace themselves for a “very hard Brexit”, the Federation of German Industries has warned, as it called on its members to take precautions or be prepared to face heavy economic losses.
