    Britain is fucked.

    All 'clusterfucks'.

    This one is just the inevitable continuum of BREXIT idiocy.

    … and you continue to ignore the fact that you are a consummate liar? How very odd for one who holds himself to such high standards of probity in his comments and opinions?

    Yup, certainly looks like it, but it's been the case for years now. Bad Germany, ugly Brussels, terrible EU, horrible Macron, our fish etc etc ad infinitum.

    Apropos one of my prognostications concerning the aftermath of Brexit, all coming true it seems, I see that BMW are transferring all of their UK electric Mini production to China and any combustion motor production of the model will cease there in 2030. I believe I told Tax this would likely happen over three years ago.

    And of course, the much vaunted boasts by BoJo The Clown and Quasikwarteng that British Volt would straddle the world in car battery production like a Brexitonian Colossus, has gone bust owing £280 million.

    You know, at what stage will the silly fuckers ever admit that Brexit was nothing but a calamitous mistake that has so far cost Britain over £100 billions, seen its labour resources slashed impairing all sectors of the economy, consigned the £ to emerging world status, diminished its stature globally to a degree the country is little more than museum piece relic and has produced a political scene the entire civilised world considers to be a joke.

    Still, it provides me with great entertainment.

    Oh I forgot the good news, Britain will not have the lowest growth rate next year among the G20, that will be Russia. Britain will be the next lowest.

    Of course, Brexit is to blame for everything.

    USD now at $14.40 to the GBP. Must be because Brexit yes?

    If you need to invent a ridiculous 'example' of something then you've already failed to prove a 'point'.

    Or are you so far away in cloud cuckoo land that you don't believe the exchange rate between £ and $ has anything to do with BREXIT?

    I'm guessing you didn't watch the video or you wouldn't have responded in such a childish manner usually reserved for Mike/strglshit/Toots

    It's by the FT, hardly a hotbed of socialist torch-burning.

    Try again:

    The video talks about a climate of denial, and that is spot on.

    The entire tory party conference was full of tories pretending it hadn't been an utter disaster from start to finish. Proving itself to be the first time a country has imposed sanctions upon itself.

    Pretty much sums it up, I don't know how even the most fervent Brexit-proponents refuse to accept that. Almost as bad as Trumpists

    Brexit, or leaving the EU was a very good idea. Managing it is for the government, not me and certainly not SA.

    As no country has ever left before, you seem surprised that problems continue to exist? I am not surprised.

    I started watching your confirmation bias video, which was produced by the EU. I didn’t stay long, because it presented the EU viewpoint and nothing else. I already know their view.

    So, you're saying the FT presented the EU viewpoint and nothing else . . . because?

    It seems you're simply:

    Call me a liar if you want This is an opinion. You can debate the rights and wrongs of it.
    Facts are different. If you lie about a fact, you can be certain that I will challenge it.

    You stupid fuck, it was produced by the FT, a neutral publication, and is a dispassionate analysis of the Brexit outcome.

    I have been telling you for the past six years that a country that cut itself off from an unfettered market which accounted for 49% of its manufacturing output would suffer grievously.

    My assessment and projections that such a seismically stupid act would result in £100 billions of losses annually
    and would stunt growth by 4% were accurate.

    Brexit was, is, and shall always be a fuckup which is only supported by fucking idiots, a demographic so ably represented by your good self, you gormless senile old frazzled twat.

    In this extract, I agree completely. Sorry if it doesn't support less fact-based assessments. No, I am not sorry at all, it is what it is.

    Indeed Kalaallit Nunaat known to Danes as the green landGronland

    In English Greenland the worlds largest Island, tho an economy smaller than Huawei or even CP.

    I had the pleasure of a native gf while at Kobenhavns Univesritet, while no Eskimo knell she had a can't say no smell.

    Of course that was an early instance of false news to aim to get settlers to what before the jetski , safe canned food and electric a life much like here, blubber blubber and large performing seal ...for dinner at igloo sleepovers.

    Greenland Really Was Green
    It actually got its name from Erik The Red, an Icelandic murderer who was exiled to the island. He called it “Greenland” in hopes that the name would attract settlers. But according to scientists, Greenland was actually quite green more than 2.5 million years ago.
