Mass impoverishment of the British people delivered by a government so incompetent that even if Brexit made any economic sense it'd still be disastrous is THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. I do wish you'd start backing Britain because blind faith and optimism will solve everything.

This whole sorry saga is the result of Mrs May believing she could translate the feeling of a small majority of the British population, that leaving the EU would solve a lot of problems, into a well-thought out policy of actually leaving the EU. Those who voted leave had not thought through the practicalities and advantages and so we have no policy and no prospect of a coherent policy. We should go back to square one and stay in the EU until those who want to leave have a proper practical plan that can be put to the British people. Leaving the EU looks simple: it isn't.

As much as I think Theresa is incompetent, Brexit lies squarely on thee shoulders of Camoron.

The people in government responsible for delivering Brexit say they still haven't decided what they want out of it, which is the clearest admission yet that people had no idea what they were actually voting for.

On 9 Feb 2018 at 6:42am . Interest rates were su wrote:
. Interest rates were supposed to be normalised two years ago but that had to be delayed because Brexit caused a recession .By cancelling the rise Carney gave a boost of equivalent to 1-2% reduction in rates as compared with expectations .
Unsurprisingly this caused a consumer boom , disguising the fear of Brexit recession only revealed itself in the plunging pound.
The global economy is growing and our relative growth is slowing compared with the Euro zone , which has also dragged the pound up
Investment however , and savings have disappeared so the threat of inflation is very real even without the cost of zero return on savings . Global growth has allowed Carney to bring forward his scheduled normalising of rates but we have no good options
It remains the case that at any given point rates must be higher due to Brexit , tax returns are lower due to Brexit and so taxes must rise faster due to Brexit
So now we have a Brexit council tax rise a Brexit interest rate rise and Brexit inflation as well as Brexit threats to most of our jobs not to say a Brexit National Debt that is an additional 10% on the pre Brexit level to dump on our children... excuse me I forget to mention the savage Brexit cuts to our schools and NHS

Good old Brexit

It's not simply Brexit that's the problem. It's the fact that it's being handled by the most useless set of politicians in living memory. The sensible thing would have been to make our current EU citizens feel valued and secure and begin negotiations with a clear vision that emphasised future cooperation whilst clearly defining our goals. Instead, we have a PM who tries to talk tough but keeps changing her mind. The EU keep asking what we want. Theresa May doesn't seem to know. What a shambles.

It is a smokescreen to use 'Brexit' as the reason for so called 'austerity' and its grave erosions of a dignified kind way of life. The increasing suffering due to gross inequalities in our society is caused by the impending crisis caused by neo liberal economic policy.
Unfurled across the world and implemented enthusiastically by Thatcher, and by Blair and Brown under the 'New' Labour project - which of course was not Labour at all - its aim is to dismantle the state and enrich the rich. The consequences of this are all around us.

I can see why it looks that way. BUt ultimately it's because the UK has been so intertwined with Europe for so long, it cannot be unwound overnight. Plus, the EU, legitimately, will defend its interests, and we are now "third countries".

The elites love the EU, less so the people.

'The French people would probably vote to leave the EU if presented with a similar choice to the Brexit referendum, Emmanuel Macron has said.' Jan 2018
German politics is in chaos because of the unpopularity of the Eurozone's austerity policies, with the two main parties having to hang together as an alternative to hanging separately.

And yet people imagine the EU is a happy little club and only British voters are dissatisfied with membership.

Is this anything to do with the rising price of food ? My weekly shopping bill is getting bigger and bigger. Is the move toward Brexit to blame ? Are foreign foods getting more expensive ? What will happen when we finally cut the cord ?
