    Might I remind you that the French lost twice as many men in the first world war as the British and that it was the British who scuttled out of Dunkirk whilst the French covered their arses, incurring losses of nigh on 80,000 men.

    Britain is a delusion, a tawdry, shabby and morally confused country lost in consumerism and guided by a defective social compass that can only point towards welfare addiction and xenophobic bigotry as it stumbles along a path bereft of any aims beyond greed, self indulgence and lumpen self gratification.

    Brexit Britain is nothing more than a third rate broken society struggling to return to an age redolent of the 1950s when lazy summer days were supposedly bathed in a glow of sun drenched contentment shining down on a society that revelled in a greatness measured by the belief being born British was to win the lottery of life. The pitiful truth was of course it was no more than a hiatus between the desolation of post war austerity and the long slow slide into national decline hastened by sloth, incompetence and stupidity culminating in an economic collapse that could only be restored though international charity.

    Back to the future indeed.

    where is our evening crew when we need it

    UK not part of single market after Brexit, EU official says

    The UK will not be part of the EU's single market and will be treated like any other "third country" after Brexit, says Olivier Guersent, director general of the European Commission's financial-services directorate. "The US works fine in the current [third-country] framework, so I don't see why the UK post-Brexit wouldn't," Guersent says.

    What's new about that? The UK will be leaving the single market and the customs union. How many times do you need to be told?

    Britain may be leaving the single market but not the UK due to Northern Ireland and the Good Friday Agreement. Then the DUP don't want different rules between NI and the rest of Britain and things start to get complicated. It's just another fine mess the Maybot has got the UK into with this silly Brexit shite...

    Err, the EU chap is repeating it, yet again, because that dozy cvunt Davis is so fucking dense he seems to think the UK can continue with the passporting of financial services if he keeps on and on and on asking about it. It ain't the EU that's wot thick, it's your fucking stupid negotiators. You stupid pillock.

    I wonder what name the government will call the customs union. They have to leave it to keep the Brexiteers happy but have promised a new customs union. It sounds like a re-branding to me.

    Perhaps the Maybot and Davis will negotiate a customs market and single union.

    They appear to be quite bonkers!

    and the good news are coming

    BoE economist projects rate increase to fight inflation

    Andy Haldane, chief economist at the Bank of England, says "inflationary developments" likely will cause the central bank to raise interest rates sooner rather than later, though there is no rush. Rates won't return to past levels, Haldane says, but "keeping the cost of living under control is, we think, the single best and most important thing we can do to help the economy."

    UK officials seek unity, focus for Brexit plan
    Beginning Wednesday, senior UK ministers will deliver a series of speeches to bring clarity and unity to Britain's plan for exiting the EU. The effort, which the administration calls the "Road Map to Brexit," ends with an address by Prime Minister Theresa May in which she offers a security relationship.

    The more one studies the Kipper mania, the more it's fucked up and then one realises that it was only ever meant for the truly fucking stupid or the deluded.

    Yesterday Boris wittered on in his speech that Britain was now conducting ever more trade with the world and cited South Korea as a fine example of this and why we have nothing to fear in our global reach etc.etc. outside the protection of the EU.

    What the cvunt failed to say, possibly because he is so fucking ignorant, is that the EU signed off on a FTA with S. Korea in 2011 which lifted tariffs on a range of goods that were previously imposed on the British and other EU suppliers. In fact, over the past two decades the EU has relentlessly pursued the principle of free trade and agreed many FTAs and EPAs which has permitted member states to adjust their trading balance between intra - EU and among third countries. Hence Britain's ratio of trade with EU states compared to the world has reduced in percentage terms from 60% to 42%. Similarly, for another example, is Ireland whose largest trading partner is the US, a relationship it has managed to establish within the EU framework.

    So, if it ain't trade just what the fuck is the reason for leaving? To make it more fucking difficult to travel and work in Europe? To lose our passporting of financial services? To fuck up 6 million lives? To fuck up the NHS, the entire care industry, the market gardening and arable land farming, the construction industry?? To fuck up the peace process ending a 30 year civil war? To devalue the fucking currency? To lower growth for a fucking decade? To risk losses annually of 100 billions?

    The more it goes on the more it beggars belief that anyone could be so fucking stupid as to pursue such folly for absolutely no fucking gain whatsoever.

    Brexit is solely about fucking up the exchange rate for Pattaya sex pests surviving on pensions. Job well done.

    another reason for Brexshit supporters

    https://www.politico.eu/article/coun...monetary-fund/

    EU states want control over ESM upgrade

    The Council of the EU is moving to create a powerful European Monetary Fund to head off the next financial crisis but is using a process that doesn't involve the European Commission or the European Parliament. The commission and Parliament are upset they have been left on the sidelines without influence on how the European Stability Mechanism will upgrade to the European Monetary Fund.

    same rhetoric, same shit, different day

    Better cooperation could smooth Brexit, expert says

    Financial regulators could minimize market fragmentation and disruption caused by Brexit if they significantly improve cooperation, says David Wright, who headed the International Organization of Securities Commissions from 2012 to 2016 and who leads a financial industry body in France. Authorities could build trust through real-time information sharing for major markets, he says.

    I see Lagarde is quoting the IMF to have estimated that in the event of a hard Brexit the will fall another 15% from today's value.

    As a good old fashioned British fuck up this one is going to be a real doozie. Inflation will be 5% in a year and rates back up to 2%. Stagflation is really going to bite hard and meltdown time for equities. Still it was a fine bull market while it lasted.

    You Brexit morons better have a plan B.

    Har, har.
