    Economy was 2% smaller than forecast before the EU referendum, despite the strength of the global economy and the Bank’s emergency cut in interest rates after the Brexit vote.

    You really are deluded ....and will say anything other than admit even the idea of Brexit has hit the UK economy hard in real terms.

    You've never exposed anything I've written for the simple reason I post facts not made up bull shit like you do. Simple fact wages are increasing by an average of 3% inflation is running at 1.8% hence people have more money in their pocket, they are better off. Rather than just accept these facts for what they are as in non disputable facts, you do what you always do as in start posting meaningless or made up shit that has nothing to do with what has been posted.

    The economy is growing, employment is at record levels, wages are rising. Again these are all facts which rather than just accept you will yet again post some meaningless shit that has nothing to do with these facts.

    Quite exciting really.

    That's the problem when your electorate are as fucking stupid as a bunch of rocks.
    Which still has an I.Q. stratospherically ahead of yours. Even your bovine spongiform encephalopathic brain should have woken up to the fact that everyone on TD knows you are a know it all no nothing. Your followers says it all. A euro wanabee and a german wanabee. The tragedy for them of course is they can neverbee. FFS, a hydrogen atom has more protons than you have neurons.

    The thing is, and this is really a problem for the economic illiterates here at TD, the lower end are so dumb that they simply cannot grasp the fact that since the 2008 crash when the bank debt was socialised by zero interest rates, QE and the concomitant freeze on wages, the purchasing power of average incomes has reduced by 8% in the past decade. Any notion that this depreciation has been made good by recent wage rises is of course a triumph of spin woven by vested interests duping perhaps the stupidest, most credulous people in the developed world, the British, a defective species so ably represented here by the lower end of TD. Following the Brexit vote and the collapse of the by 20% inflation rose from zero to 3% more or less within 6 months, a rate that has been maintained over the past two years. Any temporary fall of course is attributed to the relapse in oil prices and has little to do with the metrics of the ailing British economy about to enter the grim vortex of a stagflation spiral.

    The alleged 3% increase in wages is actually quite amusing if it were not so tragic. Even if it were true and was applied across the board then in terms of any disposable income increase it only amounts to around 1.2% and does little to mitigate the losses incurred through the austerity policies over the last decade. When one factors in the exacerbating impact of credit charges and the indebtedness of over 20 million Brits whose liquid assets are less than a lump sum of 200, then the picture is indeed grim, particularly when the inflation rate on a hard-brexit will attain a level of 5%.

    The future is one of unrelenting hardship and a systemic collapse that will take a decade to repair but of course by that time there will have been a socialist government which at least might make the pain shared out more equally.

    The rate is now 40.15.

    Tick-tock, tick-tock.

    What are the odds on a UK sans NI/Scotland?

    You see SeekingKatoeyAss the difference between you a Thai wife in the UK is that the Thai enjoys life, isn't a whining, moaning old fart obsessed to the point of having a stroke with the exchange rate. The Thai when on a trip back to Thailand won't give a fuk a bowl of rice or somtam costs more in , it won't even cross their minds as they are on holiday spending time with family and friends and doing that thing you find impossible as in enjoying life.

    I get it, that your sole source of income is a meagre state pension and you are surviving on about 5000 baht a week but just because you are a miserable twat so need to try and force your misery onto others who suffer from or give a fuk about what afflicts you.

    Good thing is though, with the Pound in free fall, the Brit lumpen will stay home in Blighty where a pound is still a pound.

    The Brit lumpen will have holidayed in record numbers in 2018 and a new record will no doubt be set in 2019. Youd be surprised how cheap all inclusive holidays are for Brits outside of school holiday time. A week somewhere in Europe or N Africa all inclusive will cost 500 for 2 so even the job dodgers can afford to go.

    It really is quite significant how the issue of Brexit has so manifestly polarised the thinking of those affected by it. On the one hand we have the Leavers who are all pretty much denoted by an inability to spell, think or construct a syntactically correct sentence that is not riven with a mania that typifies what they might imagine passes for thought, if indeed one could ever describe the meagre state of consciousness that they inhabit as such. A goldfish on acid probably approximates to the degree of acuity most of them might aspire to on a good day. And then there are we Remainers who have functioning brains. No contest really.

    Don't waste your time, Buffy doesn't understand that a failing pound means foreign holidays will become more expensive, the scope of his misunderstanding is illustrated by the fact he thinks 2019 will be a record year for Brits selling pounds to buy other currencies.

    Again you show what a dumb fuk you are and as predicted post meaningless made up shit that I neither said or implied. Brits love their holidays and a 10 or 20% drop against the Euro isn't going to stop them having their yearly 2 weeks in Benidorm you thick gormless plank. As I said 2018 was a record year and 2019 will probably be a new record.

    Seeking Ass is an idiot. Stuck in a repetitious cycle of venting, pretending he doesn’t care, yet his persistent theme is forecasts of doom. Not for him, but for those who wish to leave the institute that is building up towards inescapable failure.
    Having taken whatever minuscule benefits there were, from a trade arrangement, it is now time to leave before the political wing of Eutopia takes over, and drowns all its children.

    Bye bye European Union, bye bye Euro, bye bye to failure. Bye, bye genticles.

    Brexit: Ministers under fire over 'no deal' position
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-47231597

    Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay has come under fire for refusing to rule out a no-deal Brexit.

    MPs will vote later on whether they still support the government's approach that they backed in a vote last month.

    Brexiteers are unhappy with the motion because they say it implies support for ruling out a no-deal Brexit.

    But Remainers were annoyed when Mr Barclay confirmed that the government has not taken no-deal off the table when the UK leaves the EU on 29 March.

    MPs will be asked to back a government motion which says the House of Commons "reiterates its support for the approach to leaving the EU expressed by this House on 29 January 2019".
