Brexit - The Final

By saying what the specialists have been saying for a long time...

Obviously the government pursuing brexit loses any kudos for economic competence

Brexit costs UK £600m a week

A report highlighting the economic impact of Brexit uncertainty on the country, estimates that it has cost the UK around £600m per week since the referendum

This would mean that in the 145 weeks since the referendum the total cost to the UK economy is around £87bn.

The report by Goldman Sachs says Brexit has cost the UK economy 2.4% of its GDP,
Which is also starting to be felt by Defence, and only going to further the cuts.

Farage is attacking UKIP. Just as he was once UKIP's star attraction, he's now the Brexit Party's star attraction. And moderate UKIP supporters are moving across.

UKIP have become less moderate since he handed over the reins. As UKIP becomes borderline racist, they'll turn off mainstream voters - which leaves the Brexit party as the logical alternative.

They're going to be the party of the protest vote in the European elections. But after that, they'll need to come up with a decent manifesto, credible spokespeople (other than Farage) and start showing they're an opposition in waiting. Or they'll be a one trick pony like UKIP.

Hahaha

You really think that a Farage project can produce anything of substance.

I'm embarrassed for you

If you didn't have me on ignore, you'd have seen the analysis by Goldman Sachs. But you're a tool

It's been obvious from the start that uncertainty and throwing up barriers to the rest of the world wasn't going to be good for the public purse.

And this is the government in damage limitation mode

Brexit has not cost that - it is the carnival run by a Remain PM trying to Brexit without changing anything - that is what is costing money.

They'll be a one trick pony. Just like last time.

You can't possibly be proposing this national embarrassment is a success, can you?
Will be once we Brexit. It is Remainers that are holding up matters and making it such a feck up - you know, the gang you support.

Then the ERG should have backed PMTM's deal. Obviously, it wasn't Brexity enough, whatever that is.

And that trick was enough to get the referendum. I suspect this one-track will be enough to get Brexit done, don't you?

Hmmm, should I believe economic analysis, or confusion bloke on the internet...

Too soon to say. Labour needs to pull its finger out.

Do you think the current cross-party talks will result in PMTM's deal (as watered down by Labour) winning a majority in Westminster?

Crystal ball working well?

If Farage has learned the lessons from UKIP, they might become a significant opposition party. But, as I said in my previous post, they need a decent manifesto, and a decent shadow cabinet.

It would also help if Farage steeped into the background after a couple of years having groomed a credible successor. He could then become the party's elder statesman.

The Brexit Party's future is in it's own hands - for the next few months they have an open goal to shoot into. We'll have to wait and see (see what I did there) to find out if they can put the ball in the back of the net.

If the deal gets through parliament, which I doubt and hope not, then it won't be down to Labour.
