Brexit Endgame

We've now got a treasury with a northern MP and a fair wind that the tories will deliver some friendly policies and do the pre-requisite of a successful brexit and grow our domestic economy.... Hopefully, external trade we can hang onto our European markets and grow out international trade to really get the nation going in the right direction.
 
Yes, so you said.

But even with elasticity, it'll still kick the arse out of freedom of movement.
They'll look after their cheap labour supply
You think the likes of Wolfson and those big agri concerns who we blocked CAP reform for are going to do without their cheap labour? You'll be very angry when the penny drops.
You'll still be angry when it drops. That's from 2018, it took me seconds to find.

Their plan at the moment appears to be borrow, not necessarily bad, in order to fund some infra spending, almost Labour like. But It depends on them not breaking the economy at the end of the year....

A treasury with a northern MP,.........that wouldnt be the one who said that his nickname was the 'Maharaja of the yorkshire dales'
Nissan down 12%
Ford down more than 15%


While Porsche took a 41% dip, maybe they aren't coming to save us.

The septic economist on Daily Politics reckons we've lost a decade's worth of growth because we haven't been spending. He reckons, given the ultra low interest rate, the high employment figures and low but steady growth (I think he called it Japan-enomics) that borrowing to invest in infrastructure is the way ahead and that BoJo is on the right track.

Potato statistics.

You hilarious clown.
 
Solidarity brother.
Had it not been for the support of those looking for the main chance with a public school education. Eurosceptics scattered among the left and right in the commons and the House of Lords, in government and opposition.


Media moguls, press columnists, journalists, millionaire businessmen, Two dedicated political parties doing nothing else except supporting brexit, you might be right.

The misery walk was a bit of a failure and you have to admit except when he was looking for money, Nigel always looked a little uneasy among his supposed core support.

Is it true that Honda were shipping the machinery to transform the plant and refit it for electric vehicles. But when the news came of a leave victory they turned the ship around sending it all home.
Announce factory closure, despite the fact that the new power source would have created even more jobs.

Go on then, provide a link that backs that up.
 
This will give the belters something to grind their teeth over:

Woody Johnson, the US' ambassador to the United Kingdom, has penned this post-Brexit Valentine's Day ditty:

Roses are red
But slightly cliché
What I want this year is
A GREAT FTA!

Get help.

It depends...they should have been borrowing in 2010 but went for austerity, it depends how they do it. HS2 is a bad example and any NI bridge is a bad example. Both would balloon in costs. Already happened with HS2.

See what the budget brings but, now there's nobody who will speak truth to power and Johnson is big on vanity projects. East - West Rail in Midlands and North investment would help - what else?

Fight! Fight!

I think BoJo told the EU what they wanted to hear to get a working agreement out of them. He's now going to bend that agreement out of shape to do what he really wants.

Including not having the UK/NI border in the middle of the Irish sea. And if the EU wants a hard border, I suspect BoJo will invite them to create one on the ROI side of the border.

Honda bosses concluded this month that, given the need to invest more in electric cars, the Swindon plant which currently builds 150,000 Honda Civics a year, was no longer economically viable. Brexit was ‘not to blame’ Honda insisted though commentators say the uncertainty it has caused did not help.”

Meanwhile, the EU economy continues to go down the pan.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2020/02/14/eurozone-suffers-worst-growth-since-debt-crisis-coronavirus/
The eurozone suffered its weakest growth since the debt crisis at the end of last year as economists warned the coronavirus will inflict more pain on the bloc's stalling economy in coming months. Expansion fell to its slowest since early 2013, when the bloc's economy was gripped by the sovereign debt crisis. Annual growth in 2019 slipped to a six-year low of 1.2pc from 1.9pc. The slump in growth was triggered by a fall in German growth to just 0.1pc - down from 0.3pc for the previous three months.
Which in the short term is good news for the UK. The EU will be less inclined to pick a fight over trade if its economies are slipping into recession and they need friction free access to UK markets.
